Holy vegan YumYum sauce! You get $10 bucks per there and you don't make that much on Medium? How is that possible? I mean seriously. You really have to take my advice and get that "About Me" article written ASAP, then rejuvenate those dumpling articles over to Medium in one of the classier publications. Publications people actually read. You realize I'm not into making money (just read what I write) but apparently you are and this is the strategy. Plus, you have a FANTASTIC sense of humor if you can channel it properly into a topic and there are two or three INSTANT acceptance humor pubs (HAVEN, MUDDYUM, JANE AUSTEN'S WASTEBASKET) out there. Bev Potter is a friend of yours, right? She can steer you in the right direction on that. Get you an introduction if you need one. She's one of the best humor writers on the planet. Animal rights isn't 100% in the niche but there are several climate justice and social justice pubs. The problem is that hardly anyone reads them (Medium is not inclined; if you write about Bitcoin you are "trendy").
Also, you are a reader. I never had a hit there but My Selections (I told you about it) is a good resource and they will always publish you if you follow the guidelines. If nothing else, the people who do read you will follow you there. I know I will (that's a promise). And you will always have at least the two editors there reading you as well.
If you have any more recipes (with or without the poetry) there is a cooking pub (The Cookbook for All) that will almost always take you on and they have a big following.
Right now I can't think of anything else and this response is becoming Biblical. If I come up with more I'll let you know.
