Is Vocal a New Home for My Traveling Articles?

I’m simply reposting articles I wrote for NewsBreak

When NewsBreak started asking for U.S.-related content, I thought it would have been a great chance to write about travel again.

I was wrong.

The NewsBreak readers were mean, left a lot of nasty comments under my articles, and as soon as the platform stopped paying writers a fixed amount per story, I quit.

I tried to publish a couple of those articles on Medium without success, so I didn’t continue.

A month ago, I discovered that Vocal was gifting writers money when publishing five, ten, and fifty stories; I started reposting those NewsBreak articles on the platform.

Two of my articles have been chosen by Vocal’s staff and became Top Stories earning me $5 each for simply reposting them on their platform.

Those stories also got more views than the others, but that’s the thing: despite being a Vocal+ member, those stories made less than $1 for reads.

Vocal might be a good platform for publishing traveling stories, more than Medium, so I will keep reposting stories I’ve already written, but I’m not sure if it’s worth writing new articles just for that platform.
