Patience is a virtue that is not common nowadays. Before joining this platform I heard so many misconceptions about it. The most common of which was that "Only post related to Bitcoincash get high upvotes".
The Noisecash Admin chat head refuted this claim. And went as far as citing various none crypto-related articles that received high upvotes.
This article is dedicated to friends that joined this platform in the last few days. I never paid much attention to the affiliate list until yesterday when I saw ma'am @Eybyoung 's article.
In her article, she spoke about her post on noisecash which generated a question from another user. She talked about her 2BCH journey and also stated the fact that- she will be a year old member of the Bitcoincash community this month. This prompted a question from the said user, he asked about what she has done generally for the growth of the BCH community.
Here is the link to the article https://read.cash/@Eybyoung/is-it-wrong-to-think-bitcoin-cash-as-an-investment-2e44b1. Also, In the article, she talked about her affiliates, the nurturing, challenges and all.
After going through her article I click the affiliate button to check my "Affiliates" too. I saw a whopping 18!. One thing I noticed was, most of them are my friends who felt the need to support me by creating an account to follow each of my articles. I feel so loved and blessed.
Going further down, I discovered that some wrote one of two articles and stopped. Most likely because they didn't receive as much BCH as they think they would.
Is it the issue of impatience? or just lack of motivation? Then I realised I received a lot of help when I joined. @tired_momma @jane @Ruffa to mention but a few, all supported me with upvotes. Every day I try to follow in their footsteps and aim to also have the Top Tipper badge to my name someday. Probably this is the support these people also need.
Due to the support, I received back them I patiently surged on without getting distracted.
So here is a little tip from my one month experience.
Remember as I said earlier, there was a general misconception about the type of articles that receives huge upvotes. So I was in a dilemma on what to write about. I know next to nothing about Cryptocurrency trading, I did not know blockchains or even the simplest of all crypto-related Topics. How then will I survive in a place where we have various gurus in this field?.
When I finally get an idea of a crypto-related Topic to write on I realised it's been written already or known to many already. If that was the only problem it would have been better, after drafting it, it does not surpass two pages at most.
What did I do?
I will like to start by stating that - "This isn't a self-appraisal Post or a way of flaunting my achievement. I can't even call what I've gotten so far on this platform an achievement, it's just the beginning of what I envisioned for myself. I know a lot of people that joined the platform after me and are doing far better...this is just my way of encouraging you not to give up".
At first, I went for my normal School competition article writing mode; I wrote about the crisis affecting the nation and world. It received over 100 views, but I wasn't satisfied. If you are someone conversant with my activities on noisecash you'd know that I love it when people engage and interact on my post. I love to do the same.
I wasn't satisfied with the result and decided to re-strategies. I checked out other aspects I have strength in and set out on making use of it to the fullest.
Find Out your strength and build on it.
Listen to instructions and advice: As you know I didn't drop my introduction note first, this was pointed out to me on Noisecash and I took to the advice.
As if that wasn't enough, my introduction message looked like that of an amateur or was filled with emojis and I didn't state my country and occupation or current status. All these were pointed out to me and I accepted them with open hands.
Engage on posts by other users: You don't beg for subscribers here, you earn it. Interact with the post by/from other users. Take time to read it and drop reasonable comments and when you feel you have nothing to contribute - skip the post and move on to another. You don't need to drop an unnecessary and unrelated reply on people's post. Trust me -it isn't cool at all.
The read.cash admin constant guide/article notification is there to help you: After your first post, the next thing to do is available in the article the admin will send to your notification box. Take time to go through it.
Patience and Consistency: I save the most important ones for the last. You need to be patient, nothing good comes easy. I got my first visit from @TheRandomRewarder after my 8 and a half post. The half being the introduction. Consistently post your articles (I mean to say no plagiarism) do not be distracted or discouraged.
I waited patiently and wrote articles after articles with the expectation that someday rusty will smile on me and it finally did. It was worth the wait after all.
Do not compare: Don't compare your earnings to another. Because your friend is earning more than you or got visited by rusty right after his or her second post doesn't make him/her better than you. No! It doesn't work like that.
I believe if you can do all these and also follow the instructions in the article the admins constantly send to you. You are on your way to earning more than your expectations here.
In my little way, I will be supporting 5 of my affiliates with a sponsorship offer and also 5 other users who are currently not getting enough recognition for their works.
If you fall in this category kindly drop a comment with the link to one of your posts.
I'm doing this as a way of giving back to my sponsors. I know there is no way I can pay them back adequately for their support. The best thing I can do is to emulate their generosity towards myself and other users.
Remember, "You are a born winner, you are no quitter". So grab your writing pen and pour out your heart in those articles!

This is all very sound and solid advice. Things take time, and building an audience will take just as much time as anything will. Rome was not built in a day.
I think it is important that you mentioned that "all topics matter." Look, at the end of the day what is going to drive an audience into your corner is not WHAT you write about. But HOW you write about it.
For years I have used the ghost story analogy. A ghost story is a ghost story. They are all pretty much one in the same. They have been told a million times. The thing that separates one from the other and what makes one from the other unique is HOW you tell the story. Your perspective on it. Your words. Your take.
I look at a platform like this like I look at any endeavor. You start small and you work your way to bigger. You count each and every small victory as one step towards a BIGGER victory. And you never give up trying to GET that bigger victory.
If you do that, things just sort of fall into place. If they don't, there IS a reason for that. Not everyone will succeed of course. But those who work hard, who have the patience, and the drive to succeed will.
