Hmm. that is not exactly it, Terry. This is my honest opinion. Building our own publications take time, and results will be linear at first. When we publish with other publications, it helps to build credential for ours. I used this strategy pretty often and it does work for me. Flexibility is key, although I know what you are referring to. :)
