PeakD: Progress Or Not?
Good day everyone. I hope you are all doing fine. Last time, I told you that I plan to go back to blogging on PeakD as a form of survival. I decided not to look at rewards, honestly. But when I returned, writing on that platform gave me a roller-coaster ride. There are some instances when I feel demotivated due to a lack of upvotes, but I'm most likely motivated when achieving what I thought would be impossible. Not yet prominent or known, but I think I will also get my spotlight soon.
I remember I was jealous of others not due to their upvotes but because I also dream of experiencing appreciation. I probably don't care if my articles will flop as I believe we can't please everyone to read our articles. When someone told me I was ineligible for that program, I admitted I became demotivated. Who would be? I'm just starting to be an aspiring writer on that platform, but you're already reminded that it is just my limit.
Going back to my anxiety stage, I remember always crying at night as I thought I had already exceeded my limits. I think we just misunderstood, though. I'm aligned with my objective, which is to be active there no matter what, and I'm glad that I achieved the progress that I've been dreaming of. Without further ado, let's start.
Among those blogs I have written, here are the blogs that get to the curation program. Sorry if I unintentionally say something inappropriate so that I can edit it right away. It seems like this achievement is a dream come true as I thought I couldn't get this moment like others might experience. Despite being down in writing, I'm glad I can finally get the things they can share. I feel like they're submitting my link in their Discord channel to get upvotes from other curators.
That's just my hunch, though. I still don't know how it works, but I don't mind it since it is just my idea. I'm so happy every time I see these numbers. It motivates me to keep up the good work. So far, I'm glad already gotten upvotes from known curators such as Appreciator, OCD, and Curangel. After I received a big upvote from the Appreciator yesterday, I can't help to jump into happiness. I feel like I am in heaven, just like the last time I started to write here.
I'm glad I could attain this success in less than a month of writing. Not to brag but to inspire others. And also, I'm just proud of my success since I thought I could not get far. The first photo was taken last October 14, 2022, and the latest image was born on November 5, 2022. They said that your Reputation points vary from the upvotes you're receiving. It means that I'm finally growing!
Through those times that I felt hopeless, a kind-hearted woman in HivePH helped me to start again, as I admit that I get demotivated to write. I didn't have any regrets when a guy delegated me to withdraw his Hive Power from my account. He gave me false signals that made me anxious and questioned my writing ability for two straight months. My free time was wasted for nothing. My earnings from my three recent articles that get big upvotes are still not counted since I will only receive them after a week. I'm planning to temporarily save my HBD in the Hive Savings as it will give me 20% interest. I'll only withdraw them this December as I plan to buy a printer.
As usual, I'll only write the things in my niche, such as my traditional classes, movie reviews, weekend engagements, and ASEAN Hive Community contests. Noting it takes me a lot of time since I always ensure that my articles will be entertaining and informative simultaneously. I also devote time to running them in Grammarly to ensure I only have a few grammatical errors. I know that those blogs I write, even if it's already the middle of the night, would be worth it.
To motivate me to read their entries, I used my rubrics to tell how much I would vote. The 40% is for the full content if it's long or not, 30% if they mean what happened in detail, and 30% if I enjoyed reading it. I want to add something spicy about how I read because I admit I'm too lazy to read their thoughts and sentiments.
Thank you for reading. Kindly follow me in PeakD here for more updates! I-follow back niyo naman ako haha joke!
