My impression is that Substack promotes those who have published consistently on the platform. No idea what the magic number of weeks is but I'm slowly getting more and more traction.

Hi Denis! I read about this in regard to featured Substack newsletters. Consistency is definitely one pillar of success.

How long have you been wiring on Substack?

Medium's algorithm also rewards writers who have been publishing consistently for months and years.

I once read an article by Tim Denning (I know you're a fan) where he mentioned that the algorithm knows who's a senior writer.

I love the writing school. I have learned a lot from Kristina, and she breaks it down so you can understand it. I am trying to get a hardworking publisher to come over here now. There are some over at Medium who are not being treated well. They need to stop and figure out what is going on. We have a recommendation program and this guy got accused of scamming for recommending.

Just learned about the advanced layout, and I had to try it. I went all in and finished customizing it in one go. And not gonna lie, I'm pretty proud of it.

I added sections - do you even call them that? - for poetry and fiction, and added two buttons begging people to subscribe. Overall, I think things are a tad bit more cleaner now.

Hi Rick, we're still traveling so I can only access the app version where I don't see your new layout and the sections.

I bet it's clearer now. I'm happy for you!

There are lots of new features which I'll cover within the next few weeks with my Substack shorts series.

Happy Saturday!

Kristina
