 It is indeed a privilege to be able to contribute something other people appreciate and make use of.  In the research and academic circles, it is an asset, that is why I decided to share this just in case it might encourage someone to increase their publications impact.  You can check out another article in this website on increasing your citations. You could sample a few learning materials and books too.
