Hackwriting for the Push Button Publisher

A short one -I spent half of my Blogging time fixing a bug in my Cellphone . . . B"H it worked out.

I like writing . . .
I've read of bloggers who have become so successful that they've wound up with book deals.
I've read of authors who have given up blogging because they find it counter intuitive to the creative writing process.

I'm not looking for any book deals -I mean if you have one I'll take it but . . .

What I do wonder is why what I do write seems to not get very far.

Let me explain:

I wrote Dreams . . . in truth it is one of my oldest stories, written over seven years ago.

I submitted it to
Yanki Tauber read it and told me that he liked my writing, but wasn't sure if he wanted to use that exact piece . . . instead I should submit some other samples.
I send several other stories

No further response.

I wrote The Cycle of Life in Vilna and sent it to The Algemeiner Journal.
Yossi Jacobson reads it, publishes(!) it under the title He was Buried as a Jew
and seems interested in seeing more from me.
I send several other stories

No further response.

I'm working on more, I haven't given up . . .
But if any of you out there know where I can get my stuff published . . .
