Thank you for letting me know, Hank! Don’t give up if it’s something you really care about.
There’s a lot of opportunity to grow and build your audience on Medium, but it takes work. It’s all about building relationships.
You also have to actively share your stories outside of Medium to get some traction a lot of the time. Medium is like most social sites in that all of your followers will never see all of your work. But if a story picks up steam, and especially if it gets chosen to be highlighted by a Medium editor, then more people will see it.
So find a Facebook writing group, tweet it, or whatever. Actively market your work! It’s worth it.
Feel free to reach out to me any time! 😊
