Well to some degree, beats me too :D not because I am some egomaniac douche who thinks he speaks the truth from the Source or something, but because I am feeling strongly the boot of content percolation. With a bit over 200 followers the view count for some articles is right on funny (2,3 people). I am decidedly having the worst headlines it appears :D as no one clicks them.
Then there is the timezone crap. I don’t always schedule publish times to match the activity hours of my followers, so i slip in the past of their not yet there future. Frankly I don’t know much about the activity and habits of my followers because Medium only gives me numbers and usernames, as if that was something humanely manageable.
We’ll see if the luck of virality hits me, untill then I am preparing, what else can I do anyway :) Thanks a ton for the appreciation, yours, me
