1. Formatting

Titles and subtitles

Pull quotes

Pull quotes are typically intended to be visual features and should repeat a part of the article.

Drop caps

2. Stats

Responses count as stories

Sudden drops

3. Curation/Distribution

4. Publications

“Publications” are a broad category

Partner Publications

Creating your own publication


Growth matters more than totals

Don’t game the system

6. Search Engine Optimization

7. Following advice

I’m a lawyer and teacher from North Carolina. I write about sobriety, mental health, running, and more. Buy me a “coffee” at ko-fi.com/benyaclark.
