I had no idea, but I’d found a writer that had started a few months before me.

  1. Earn at least one ‘Top Writer’ badge
  2. Earn at least $50

Second 30 days

Third and final 30 days

Moving Forward

I haven’t actually got a plan for the next 90 days yet. I plan to keep doing what I’ve been doing and see what happens.
