Valuation doesn't equal profit. That is, however, besides the point. I will never attain even the kind of views you have. What I write is not popular on Medium and probably never will be. All I have to do is scroll down the Medium home page to the sub-header, 'Popular on Medium', and usually I have no interest in those stories. Obviously, the masses on Medium, do, however. That is probably the best formula for success on Medium- just write similar stories; but, I am not interested in doing that.
