No. Your writing is amazing. The trick to it is engagement. I spend about an hour and a half of reading and giving some thoughtful feedback every morning.

When I started on Medium, I read a helpful article. The author advised that we respond to at least 20 stories each day. I know it sounds like a lot but it has helped my following to grow. If you implement this strategy, more people will read you work.

When someone clicks on your response to a story, they look beneath and can see three different stories written by you. In essence, by responding you are advertising your work. They can say "Oh, I agree with him" and then feel intrigued to hear more about your ideas. This strategy works for me, not because I am an especially good writer, but because I am trusting the plan.

You have good articles already but engage a lot when you publish each one. Do not just write "great article" but actually provide a sentence or two and you will see. Even if the author does not respond, their flock will.
