You’re chasing illusions
Across several online platforms I have submitted examples of my writing. Among them are Substack, Medium and Vocal. I waited a few months before forming any sort of opinion, to give myself time to observe before drawing any conclusions.
On all of the above-mentioned platforms is an unrelenting stream of carrot-and-stick come-on’s to maximize income through diligent marketing of one’s writing venue. You emphasize that there are millionaire writers on these platforms.
So, is that the point of writing? Money?
It seems that this platform is focused on the paradigm that espouses that having more money places you higher in the pecking order.
You are not writers.
