I’ve been in the NewsBreak Contributor Program since February. As a former press secretary and policy analyst, the idea of writing news-related pieces appeals to me.

Yes, my Medium work focuses on topics of interest and takes an analytical approach — issues like consumer finance and education policy generate most of my content here.

NewsBreak, though, is something of a different beast.

First, they have some pretty strict content guidelines.

Second, your posts have to be approved — grammar errors and straying into opinion instead of news and analysis — can get your pieces flagged or rejected.

Third, NewsBreak does the work of getting your content in front of an audience. Sure, you can market it yourself, but you don’t have to.

I post pieces and move on. Then, I come back to find a story with 100K impressions and 10k+ views (equivalent of reads).
