I’ve noticed that my pieces in small publications don’t get as many views as in big pubs, but they get way higher read and clap ratios.

Also, maybe I’m missing something, but I’ve submitted locked posts to 2 pubs that always accept my pieces, and they didn’t publish them. Crickets.

Maybe they’re saturated with a backlog of locked posts like you suggest?

Also found at least 1 pub that’s choosing not to post locked stories.

And yes, my stats are horrible right now! 😱

Thanks for your insights, Tom!
