What Does it Take to be Number 2?

Just a few stories can do this for you

I’ve written a lot about my journey sharing stories at ManyStories.

The site is designed as a place to share stories.

That’s it.

There’s no writing.

There’s no repurposing your stories so they fit another format.

You just paste a link and share.

ManyStories readers can follow writers who share content they enjoy.

It’s that simple.

You share your story, you get it in front of some potential new readers.

When readers click on the link, they are taken to the page where you story is hosted — Medium, your blog, Substack, etc.

This past week, I shared 16 stories.

According to an email I received from MS, that makes me the #2 story sharer this past week.

That’s all well and good — and I like that I can track all my content in one place.

The slight boost in reads is nice, too.

I also share my content on social platforms (Facebook, Twitter/X, Threads, etc.).

But ManyStories is often the first place I go once a story goes live.

What platforms do you use to share your content?
