The last 3 words are what’s important. Not for you. What about everyone else? Other people must like those types of posts or they wouldn’t be here and they wouldn’t get read. But they are here and they do get read.
The ones I dislike are the “how to fix your life” posts. I find them to be rather presumptuous.
Impressive results in the comment/post you linked. From 15 to 844 is indeed a significant jump! The next step I’d suggest is to submit posts to a couple of the bigger publications. A publication with strong reach can increase your reach really quickly.
