I signed up to Simily two months ago after reading an article by Kristina God. I was excited to sign up to test this new platform to see if it’s a viable social blogging alternative.

I signed up, published multiple articles, more than 50 articles. Most of them were repurposed Medium content or blogs that I didn’t end up publishing. I also published a few poems and some random pieces. I did a 30-day challenge from the get-go to test the waters.

If I had nothing else to do, I would spend more time on Simily and push to get 100,000 reads, that’s $2000. I would do this to check if Simily would…
