My experience is about the same Dennett . I’m still regularly curated, but the earnings are way down, and reads have also fallen from my high point. So I don’t feel that curation translates into the same number of reads… at all!
Curiously, I started on Medium writing longer-form pieces, and it was my poetry that garnered a following. I still publish the occasional CNF, and people still prefer my poetry, so experimenting with length hasn’t gotten me anywhere. Guess I’ll keep writing poetry and look for someplace else to pick up a little income. ❤
