I submitted my work to Joel Mwakasege owner of the Be Yourself Publication, which has 100k followers, when I had ZERO followers. He made me re-work my piece, but he published me without any fans because he cares about great writing. I get what you’re trying to do and I appreciate it, but I’d be careful to promote anything veering toward the “woe is me” attitude I see plague so many writers who feel like small fish. A little discernment goes a long long way.
