There is not a better option to publish your stories friend. Use all means necessary to publish them. You might get a platform that has better features to help you publish them, but that may not be the best option like for traffic, exposure, etc.
If you're just getting started, then it is best to focus on one option of your choice. Then, you might want to publish your stories on as many platforms as you'd like. All the best!

The training will help you better understand your options. You might even consider publishing them on Amazon and getting paid.

But I would certainly get a website up. If you added the Wordpress Plugin WooCommerce you could sell them directly on your website.

I would suggest that you work through the lessons and the training. You will learn so much about making your way around the internet. I notice you are in Level 1 . Have you started building your website yet? That is the first place to start. Build your website, decide on a niche and take it one step at a time. By the time you get to Level 5, you will have a firm idea of which way to go.
If you've written short stories, you should not have any trouble writing content. And you will be taught how to write content that will help monetize your site. It's an interesting journey. Don't rush it. If anybody can teach you how to make money through writing and maintaining your website, it is WA.
All your answers, are in the Lessons. Work through them.
But if you find something that you can't find an answer to, please ask. There is plenty of help at WA.
Best of luck to you.

Hi

I'd say know your audience well and where they hangout.

Once you know where they are at and what questions they are asking then you can use below tool

https://answersocrates.com/ for further research into finding a subcategory starting out. You can search what real people are asking as in Questions, Prepositions, Comparisons, in the past, letters and query. It is also great if someone wants to write a thorough research based article.

But having a blog does not harm, it is your asset and you piece on the web. The others are accessories to your blog.

More to add imagine any of the social media platforms goes bust tomorrow, the day after, and you have built your media and channel, what would happen then? All your efforts and hard work have gone down the drain. BUT, with a blog, you are rock solid! It is yours and yours to keep.
