I’ll give you a better option to build your credentials and get quoted on many media outlets. Sign up for Help a Reporter Out. It costs nothing and will let you sign up as an article ‘source’. If a media outlet posts a query and they choose your response to quote in their article, they’ll provide you with credibility and sometimes post link back to your own website. Here’s the site: https://app.helpareporter.com/Users/Account
My personal tip is to be very specific in answering their questions in a full sentence (that the media outlet can use as a quote), and whenever possible, provide creative interesting examples.
