In addition to this blog, A Word, Please, I also write stories on Medium as @lee_hornbrook.
You can try Medium for free. You will get 5 free stories to check it out. But most of the content is behind the Medium paywall.
For $5.00 a month, you get access to hundreds of thousands of quality journalistic stories in any category you can think of. And you can get paid to write on Medium. You can start you own publication very easily, create a following, and you get paid based on how long readers spend reading your story. You can even get paid if you don’t start a publication. You can also easily submit your stories to other high profile publications. I highly recommend Medium if you are serious about writing and blogging. Best of all, Medium is ad-free, too, which makes for an amazing experience.
For the month of April, I published 13 stories, some in high profile publications and others in my own publication called Valley Dude. I hope you enjoy them.
