I follow you and always appreciate what you write. I have been a writer all my life, but now I plan to earn a living from it. Promoting myself is the HARDEST thing I have to do. My parents taught me to be modest and never to never call attention to myself, so promotion seems wrong. A few months ago, I started to post linnks to Medium articles to Facebook and LinkedIn, and I wrote a piece here called “Overcoming Facebook Phobia and the Terror of Self-Promotion.” Thanks for the encouragement.
