Great post Vico! 🙌
I agree with all of your conclusions here.
Even with 1000 followers and publishing my stories in ART+Marketing, sometimes my stats still aren’t very good. They get better if I’m very active on Medium after posting them though.
I also find that the pieces I write around 1000 words usually get the most love. Especially if I use multiple images. It doesn’t even matter if they’re locked.
This is a peculiar place we’ve chosen to pass time.
