Very valid question. Here goes:

1. Publishing 3 times a week seemed to work equally well.

2. Diversifying publications worked better. Publishing more in Better Marketing worked better.

3. Having a link to my website gave me plenty of email subscribers

4. Writing about topics that get curated helped get more views

5. Writing how-to articles worked better

6. Being myself worked better than trying to push someone I'm not

7. Similar answer to #1. Quantity has changed much for my stats.

8. Using more generic images of people seemed to work better. Hard to tell on this one. I don't think I'll give this one up.

9. I don't think it was a failure but I have no way to tell if it was a waste of time or not. I also decided to continue doing that one.
