I love your dedication to writing and to the platform. I do agree on the engagement part with your readers and those who clap, and especially with people in your niche. I did that in last two weeks and got 50+ followers and finally was able to cross the coveted 100 followers mark after 8 years.
Any thoughts on how helpful are publications in gaining visibility and new readers? I think that also helped me but not sure of its impact.
Lastly, thank you for sharing your insights from your journey.
Keep writing. :)
