Is Simily a Money-Making Machine?

One writer makes a suggestion

I’ve been writing on Simily for some time now and also chronicling my journey there.

While the site is growing, growth is slow and so are earnings.

That’s why I was surprised to read a story claiming Simily can make you a lot of money. Can Make You a Lot of Money | by Gled | The Side Hustle Club | Jul, 2022 | Medium

The writer then demonstrates this with a showing of 16 cents in earnings for 2 stories he reposted.

I think it’s possible to make a few dollars a month there — even recoup the membership fee — but, with just over 4000 members, it seems unlikely you’d make “a lot” of money there.

I’ve read the work of other established Medium writers, and while some are making a bit of cash on Simily, I don’t believe anyone is striking it rich.

The site has potential, to be sure, but I don’t believe it is (yet) a money-making machine.

What’s your experience with Simily? Where do you publish creative writing that pays well?

Here’s one of my Simily stories in case you’re interested:
