Hi Anita! Yes, I do get more views and reads on the bigger publications. Read time varies, though. Thoughts and Ideas is a good publication to try--they usually publish my stories within 12 hours, I always get extra distribution, they accept a wide range of topics, and they have 20k+ followers.
P.S. I Love You is terrific--fairly quick turnaround, good chance for extra distribution, editors give helpful tips, and they have a huge audience.
P.S. I Love You runs quality only, too, which is good for your brand. That's very important--you want to be known as a writer of substance, and publishing in the bigger, choosier titles can help cement your status with your audience.
If you keep submitting articles every day, you'll have something published nearly every day, too--you don't have to worry that there will be large gaps.
Hope this helps!
Looking forward to your next story!
