Some Good Free Advice:
1: Straight up email people further along the path you're on. The people worth listening to won't care that you're some nobody (and they won't see you that way).

2: Increase your luck surface area. The more you have out there, the more people will find you. You can't predict the hits, but you can systematize your work so your output is consistent and high quality.
