They are still here
It's been 3 months since I last posted an article on the read.cash platform. Even though I was away, there has been no week that I didn't check on here to see what's going on.
Shockingly, the platform never had a day of silence, as there were always some writers who kept the platform alive. I am so proud of them for never giving up and keeping the platform running despite all odds.
My notifications never stop beeping each day for the time I was away. Writers such as @PVMihalache, @Olasquare, @MicroReylatos, @Amjad_Ali_Waince, @Coolmidwestguy, @alberdioni8406, @Jane, and a few others I subscribed to never stopped firing from all cylinders. I salute these guys for their commitment and dedication to the platform.
I remember I was one of those who said will never stop writing even though there's no reward for the work. Unfortunately, I failed to keep to my words and like several others, I stopped writing here and shift my attention somewhere else.
For the time I was away from here, I never stopped writing. I decided to explore other platforms such as Hive blockchain where I have been actively participating in various activities from blogging to the curation of content, and engaging with fellow community members.
I must confess that it has not been easy for me on the Hive blockchain, with it being heavily structured around communities. And you must need to be a confirmed community member before your post can be curated by the strict communities' moderators.
So many times, for the 2 months I have been working on the Hive blockchain, my articles seldom get a single vote. For this, I was told it was because I was not a confirmed community member, and also that I wasn't following the community writing prompts.
Nevertheless, I got some good moments to cheer about. On about three occasions my article was selected as one of the best read for the day. This brought exposure to my blog and also make some community moderators curate my post even when I didn't share it in their communities.
Overall, the journey isn't bad so far, and I have been able to cash out $11 in Hive tokens and still have a Hive portfolio worth $23. The most important thing is the experience that has helped me to keep my writing pen flowing.
Last time our dear friend gave his last tip and said goodbye with some valid reasons given that would not make him continue his generous work of distribution of BCH rewards to writers. I can see the green man is back to his position of leadership. Is he giving us a second chance?
I do hope we can maximize the time by playing by the rules and keeping the platform saner than it was before. Whether our dear rusty return with a full bag or not is not the matter, but that we all play by the rules and appreciate the second chance we are being given.
Those of us who tried other blogging platforms during this time can attest to the fact that there's nowhere else you can find it easier than here as a writer. I am happy to see everyone coming back to writing and much happier to see the read.cash community coming back to life.
Finally, I feel very happy to be able to write again here after a long time away. It's always a thing of joy and great satisfaction for me to express my thoughts and feelings in this way. I am grateful for this second chance opportunity, and I look forward to a good future for all of us.
I am glad to be back!
