Chris, looks like you’ve found a niche on writing cooperative. I wanted to say that your read ratio seems really good. I don’t know if it could be the publications intentional audience, your ability to engage, or both. I’m guessing the latter.
My read ratios definitely vary. I remember I posted an article in the publication “be yourself”, and I got about 800 views with a terrible read ratio. I think it was around 18% or something. I’ve found the audience at the mission to garner the best results as far as read ratios go. I’m usually above 50% on those articles with most of them getting around 1–1.5k views.
Keep writing man. Looks like you have some good stuff to contribute.
