Booksie rolled out writing badges that are awarded to writers that hit milestones on the site. The first round of badges are given as a writer attracts more reads to their writing. More badges are coming.



We just rolled out two new badges based on writing contests. They are:

A gold  badge for taking first place on any writing  contest on the site.

A silver badge for placing as a runner-up. 

These contest badges appear on your profile and anywhere the winning work is listed on the site.


Writing Badges

Booksie recently rolled out a badge program to award writers at certain milestones. The badges are meant to be motivational and insprirational. Our first round of badges are awarded to writers based on the number of reads their work attracts. These are the badges and how they work:

Badges are awarded based on the combined number of reads of your portfolio. So, if one piece of writing has received 1,050 reads and another has received 546, the combined number of reads would be 1,596.

The badges are:

Bronze for 100 reads:


Silver for 1,000 reads:

Gold for 10,000 reads:

Platinum for 100,000 reads:

And diamond for 1,000,000 reads:


The badges are additive, meaning that you can have a combination of badges as you build to the next level. For instance, if you had 5,700 reads, you'd be awarded five silver badges, and seven bronze.

The badges appear on your portfolio page, below your pen name.

In the future, we'll be rolling out a variety of badges for different accomplishments on the site. 

Have questions? Post them below.

I’ve just hit my gold badge, and the badge system is. . . It’s an amazing yet simple idea and is to be seen as a milestone, but I’m wondering. . . Do you have anything else planned for the future? Any new systems, no matter how small?

This looks like a excellent idea. Showing your awards boost emotions. Your showing hard work pays off in the end.

I believe I should have more badges as I have over 20,000 reads but only two 10,000 read badges. Would you please check into the matter?

I believe I should have more badges too as I have over 2000 reads but only one silver badge. Could you please check into the matter?

Does anyone no if the statistics work? My statistics make zero sense and never add up. Are they just a waste of time?

Hey BooksieGuy. Have a quick question for you. Do those writing contest badges apply for only those contests conducted by the Booksie website or the contests conducted by Booksie members too?
