Hm, so what’s the purpose of all the astrology stuff? And what’s the need for 8+ photos in every story?

Look, your writing goal is admirable, but it’s kind of absurd (and pointless) if you plan on just regurgitating/reposting content from other outlets and fluffing stories with vaguely relevant stock photos and quotes.

For example, if people want to get their horoscope, they’ll get it from whatever app or service they use. It’s highly unlikely they’ll come to Dean’s Medium story for that info.

Anyone could do this, if you think about it. You’re not doing anything original or creative or expressive. So my advice is put more of you into these stories. Don’t make each one identical to the last (same format, length, layout, content). It’s very uninspired and counterintuitive to why people actually consume writing in the first place.

I’m sorry, I hate being that guy but I’m really trying to help and offer you some sound advice.

Bored, uneducated, homeless — em dashes are my specialty. I write what I see, think, and feel. That’s it.
