Mr. McKenzie, I’m glad you weighed in on this post too. I tend to read both of your works and respect the posits. I’ve had more articles to earn less than a $1.00 than those above a dollar.

It can be discouraging.

But last week one of my pieces that did not do well in turns of views or applauds received a bonus.

Good writing on important topics has its own reward. It is good to know that the people at Medium know an important story. I clap for their willingness to reward writers for taking the time to broaden the discussion on the important issues of the day.
