I’ve been writing on NewsBreak since February of this year and regularly chronicling my journey there.

I’ve noted here that my earnings on NewsBreak significantly exceed what I earn here on Medium. No, I’m not getting rich from writing here or anywhere. Yes, I do earn decent money on NewsBreak — more than just “cup of coffee” money.

Just this week, I surpassed 3000 followers.

The more followers you have there, the more your stories get read. Of course, I’ve read about writers there having follower counts in the tens of thousands. I’m not there (yet).

I will say this: NewsBreak makes it easy to get readers to your stories.

Write content that meets their guidelines and NewsBreak puts it in front of an audience.

Medium writer Jenn Leach has also written a bit about her positive earnings experience on NewsBreak:

I know writers like Cathy Coombs and Yana Bostongirl have also reported a good experience on NewsBreak.

I don’t know if I’d call it a “money pot,” but it does have great earning potential.

My suggestion: If you’re looking for a way to turn your writing into cash, NewsBreak is definitely worth the investment of time and energy.
