A Very, Very Public Thank You to All My Followers and Supporters
from W. Paul Alexander for Better Call Paul Blog on Publish0x
This is just a short and sweet post. I try to express my thanks to those who read, tip, follow, and support my work, not just on this platform but on others as well. I try to accommodate opposing views, no matter how far those views deviate from mine. I know I don't have a monopoly on being right, and we all have so much that we can learn from one another, both in crypto and in life, if only we would take down the walls that separate us and use the views of others to educate ourselves on the variety of viewpoints out there.
However, I've never taken the time out to issue a public "Thank You." As I have seen my numbers explode, I know that you all are the ones responsible. I try to write honest, non-sensationalized, quality content -- but without you all supporting me, reading my posts, sending me tips and donations, and following me, my venture into this space would have died out a long time ago. Persistence has been the key to longevity.
I've been here for over a year now -- going on 2 years -- and I have watched my views per article stay in the low hundreds to now being in the 5-10K range. I have watched my per article tips go from around $.10 - $.30 cents per article to reaching an average of $5.00 - $10.00 per article. This is very exciting for me, and again -- I have you all to thank for the beginnings of success that are now starting to materialize.
So what's next for the Better Call Paul Blog?
In the next couple of weeks, I will be making a major announcement and expanding the amount of content that I release. I will bring in guest writers who write about a number of topics -- from lifestyle to politics, and of course -- crypto. I will also be looking to either rename the blog or add another blog with a different name. The new name will be chosen by you all, my followers, via a contest with reward of around $50-100 worth of ETH, BTC, or BAT (I have not made that determination yet). I will start covering DeFi projects more in depth, along with projects like Chainlink, Polkadot, Yearn.finance, as well as the traditional pieces you have come to know and love covering topics like theoretical use cases for mass adoption (for instance, my article proposing a blockchain-based inmate commissary and payments network). This includes articles similar in focus to previous covering Bitcoin, Ethereum, BAT, and Litecoin. With the whirlwind surrounding DOGE, articles like my December 2020 article covering Elon Musk's first endorsement of Dogecoin also be part of my focus, as the trend has been historical. You will also get a deeper dive into my love-hate relationship with Ripple. I hope that you all join me along that way and bring a friend or two by as well!
I hope that you will all continue to follow, as you all have helped make this venture a great success!
So, without further ado and from the very bottom of my heart....
