Clowning conundrum

avatar

The last few months have not been the best when it comes to posting a lot, long gone are the days when I was making a post everyday and clowning about crypto consistently. Now I have to gather all my scattered brain cells and make them focus for a few hours in order to produce something remotely funny and coherent. Sometimes I wonder if I should adopt the new title of whining wisecracker because of how often I complain about stuff but I'll let my adoring fans be the judge of that.

The truth of the matter is that justifying the time spent making these post is pretty hard because even after 2 years of posting somewhat consistently I still feel like a bottom-feeding pleb. Meaning that I just scrape by and my main rewards are making people smile with my shenanigans - which is still nice but far from the goal.

That being said, Hive remains the best blockchain out there when it comes to making magic internet money, with all it's drawbacks ( which are many ) included. It's just that if you are not in the "cool kids club" you are stuck earning penis... I mean pennies. But if you have a busy life, the time you spend scraping the bottom of the barrel on Hive, trying to increase your bag of not-actually-but-sort-of-money can appear like a bit of a waste. Sure, it's better compared to Hive's alternatives, though they are pretty shitty so that's not saying a whole lot.

Of course I think I made my fair share of mistakes, one of them is powering down a lot. Even though all that Hive went to my alt account where most of it is powered up and part of a curation trail, not on exchanges or dumped at ridiculously low prices. But I think some looked at the powering down bit and found it questionable. And here lies another problem: the big players never tell you where you could change things up and earn more. You are left stumbling in the dark trying to find a formula that works.

I promised myself when I started meme-ing consistently on this account 2 years ago that I won't ever just disappear because that's lame as fudge. This is isn't my retiring post but it is a " I'll see you around from time to time" post. Because life is getting pretty busy again I'll be posting mainly on the weekends, and of course you can find me clowning around in the comment sections of other shenanigans enjoyers.

I hear you, I only post a few times a month. I tried out an AI program today to help me be a better blogger. Can you take a look at it and tell me what you think?

Firstly thank you for your consistent support over the past few years, it's greatly appreciated :) When it comes to the AI generated post, like most have pointed out in the comments - the tone kind of gives away the fact it was made by an AI. I think if you give it more precise commands like: " use a lighthearted tone" or something similar could give better results. And maybe you could add paragraphs written by yourself when you can't get the AI to give something to your liking. There is a lot of potential there but I think more experimenting is needed to unlock it. Hope my answer helps :)

Thank you, yes it did help, I was pretty discouraged even though I changed a bunch of things in the post. If you have to spend a hour fixing it you could just write it I guess. I think your right, a little more exploration is needed. I always like your posts, most posts are ok but they do not entertain me like yours, and you tell it like it is!

Keeping up with a daily post isn't as easy as one would think when setting out to do such a task. Life gets in the way, lack of rewards, lack of interaction, motivation, topics (to name a few). Personally I focus on interaction as early on I realized earning a decent amount consistently wasn't likely to happen. I use to joke with a blogger who is now inactive that neither of us make enough a day on the chain to purchase a Happy Meal. I once had the meager goal of earning one Hive Token a day. Focusing on interaction has me miles above where I was then but still being a pleb. Pushing forward is all one can do. I look forward to reading your upcoming post regardless of what day they are posted on.

thank you for your kind words, they mean more than you know. You are right when it comes to interactions, focusing on having fun with other people is much better than focusing on the rewards. Although there is that feeling deep down that crypto is about financial freedom and not making much progress in that direction feels like a missed opportunity
