My Very First Monthiversary

With the passing of August, I'll be having my first monthiversary on read.

It has been a fun and mesmerizing experience that's also filled with struggles and problems from real life, and I wanted to share my progress so far.

A Little Throwback To The Start

As stated in my first article, the main reason for me to be here is to find a way to improve myself. Whether it be by using my spare time for beneficial things like writing and reading, letting go of toxic habits, and also learning about cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. And in this first month, I've done just that. I keep writing as much as I can, try to engage with the wider community, and started learning about crypto and blockchain even just a little bit.

That being said, in the first two weeks, things were quite rough. My articles were barely getting engagements and I started to worry about the future of this project of mine. But because of the support from this community, I keep pushing myself to do better and to not give up. I know it may sounds cliché, but I really appreciate all the kind words and supports in any form from each and every one of you here.

From meeting new people, making new friends, getting acknowledged by sponsors, and even being visited by Rusty. I truly couldn't wish for a better first month at this website.

The Early Goal and The Reality Call

I'm not really good at long-term planning, as I've lived my life just going with the flow and live in the moment. But after reading all the articles about the earnings from read and noise, I felt motivated and tried to follow the masses. I set a goal of earning 1 BCH as soon as possible, but without any set time to reach that goal.

Having big goals is certainly not a bad idea, but sometimes we have to be realistic in life, and that's exactly what I learned here. Seeing the low numbers in my earlier articles, I thought that it would take years for me to reach my goal of having 1 BCH.
In my first week, I've earned around $1 which is about 0.0016 BCH. And if things keep going at that rate, it would take more than 630 weeks to reach my goal. That's more than 12 years!

Thankfully, blessings start pouring down from the second week onward. I've earned the trust of some very kind people who're willing to provide me with sponsorships, people started to spend some time reading and commenting on my articles, and Rusty also started visiting them.

This brings us to the next part.

The Numbers So Far

By the time of writing this article, I've earned around 0,06 BCH in total from both read and noise. It might not be much compared to the earnings of the veterans in here, but it really means a lot to me.

My earnings so far!

I haven't been as active compared to my friends and other users here, so my subscribers' count didn't grow as well as the others. So far, 24 people have found my works in read good enough to subscribe and I'm thankful for that. I'll try to do my best and post more regularly, and with better qualities so that more people will consider giving me a chance.

I also want to spotlight these amazing people, whose support has also become one of my daily motivations to get better. Kindly check out their works!

Struggles and Responsibilities

Life won't let you relax and be comfy for a long time, it'll always create problems and distractions when you least expect it. At least that's what I feel during my first month here. Within my daily struggle and worries, writing has become a safe haven where I can take a break and release the toxicity from my surroundings.

I started this whole writing/blogging journey when the situation is not really good in real life. I've got problems with my internship program, my close relative's health is worsening, and I've almost got in trouble due to my university's complicated administration and a new program from the Ministry of Education.

In addition to all that, my final year in college is just starting, so my free time is slowly decreasing and my stress level is rapidly increasing as the semester goes.

There are still so many recent problems that I wanted to rant about but I'm afraid that will clash with the main theme of this article which should be a celebration, so I'll just save it for another time.

With that said, I'd like to apologize to my sponsors, friends, and loyal readers for not being able to publish as many articles these past few days. Life caught up to me and I will need some time to clear the hurdles, one step at a time.

The Next Moves and Targets

For the month of September, I have a target of earning 0.15 BCH.

I know it's a big target looking at my August's earning, but I know that I can do better, and I'm willing to learn more and improve myself.

I'm planning to hodl all my BCH until I reach my goal of 1 BCH. Hopefully, nothing bad happened along the way, and that I can reach it as soon as possible.

If there's one word that I can describe my next step with, it's commitment.

I've learned and earned a lot this past month because of everyone in this community, and I'm really grateful for the chance to be here. And with all the uncertainty that we are living in now, it feels good to have reassurance in something.

For the ones who are willing to follow me in my journey, I assure you that I will be committed to writing and I will always try my best to reach all the expectations that are given to me.

I won't make any promises that I know I can't fulfill like posting daily, but know that I will post as much quality content as I possibly can, so please bear with me.

All in all, I'd like to once again thank everyone who is on board in this stage of my writing project. I'm really glad to have the chance to meet each and every one of you on this website. Hopefully, soon the time will come for all of you to reap the seeds of kindness that you've sown in this world.
