It takes a long time here because of their curating system, I’ve been around three years (I didn’t actually join but found I’d become a member after joining Writer Beat on Autumn’s invitation so it took me a while to get into it.) The response to my posts it still very mixed, I’ve had a few curated, they get hundreds, occasionally thousands of views because they are seen on the front page by the whole world, but some posts that are actually better articles struggle to make 20.
I’m working on integrating my medium content with my other blog and website now, that should give me more SEO juice to attract traffic through searches.
I made contact with Stone Eater (Jurg — short for Jurgen I guess) a couple of weeks ago, he has a Writer beat refugees and asylum seekers on Linkd In. Eventually I will join them and maybe start a publication for ex WB members here

Opted for comfortable retirement before I was fifty due to health problems and burn out. Now spend my time writing and goofing around. Home: northern England..
