Hola todomundo.

Here is Gladys. I am a Spanish native speaker and when I started my writing journey in Medium, I got disappointed.

I thought I couldn’t share my voice in my native language.

After writing in Medium for over a year as a non-native English speaker, let me tell you about my experience writing in Spanish in Medium.

  • I wrote over 8 stories fully in Spanish.
  • In most of my stories, you will find Spanish words. So far in this article: hola todomundo.

But what about the results?

My articles in Spanish made me money

All the articles in Spanish I imported from my blog, I metered them into the Medium Partner Program, so that they would make money from the membership’s reading time.

As expected, most of my articles didn’t have reads or views because Medium’s audience is mainly English-language readers

But some of them actually made me some cents.

At that time, my articles in English would also make me a few cents.
