It’s been ten weeks now since I started writing on Simily. I’ve been updating here every week — sharing my experience writing on what started as a fiction forward platform.

Here’s that top-earning story:

Yes, these numbers are relatively low. That’s really the point at this point — growth on Simily is very slow. They now have around 3200 members. Why haven’t they grown more? I’d say it is because they aren’t promoting themselves a lot — certainly not the way a platform like Vocal has.
