I have been a member of Publish0x since July 2020 and am a big fan. I started blogging almost immediately and have been rewarded handsomely for my content.
My content... more about that in a minute...
I've made no secret of the fact that I find both iFarm and Ampleforth unutilisable and my one attempt to move them off the P0x platform has seen them effectively held hostage in a wallet because the prohibitive gas fees are frankly ridiculous - not P0x's fault. Ironically it is Ethereum of all the current crypto that is on offer that is the most utilisable despite it's notorious reputation for gas!
Currently this means that I am kind of hodling my iFarm and Ampleforth on P0x because otherwise it would be homeless. I am hoping that in the longer terms as often happens another Coin will replace these. Having said that the most likely candidate is likely to be KuCoin which due to my unwillingness to sign up to ever more exchanges and wallets is just as useless.
Now back to content.
I was prompted by something my good Noise friend BitCoinBaby posted yesterday. She stated that she'd spent 2-3 hours working on a particular article that she thought would be of benefit to the community and then in comparison she banged something out very quickly for another article - in about 20 minutes if my memory serves me correctly.
The article that took less preparation was for some inexplicable reason better rewarded which implies better received.
I had a similar experience when I put a lot of work into comparing hodling / staking / day trading as strategies for growth. I presented analysis (you know how love numbers!) and an in depth interpretation of my findings and it barely registered in terms of tips. Don't get me wrong there was something but nothing to get excited about.
I thought I'd covered my bases, judging by previous analysis of what P0xes want. It was about crypto, it was educational and informative and it was well constructed and yet it never really took.
Then a few days later I posted something that didn't tick all of the above boxes - can't remember which article off the top of my head - and BOOM!
It was very well received and I am sitting there wondering why. Still to this day I have no idea why the first BOMBED and the second BOOMED.
Why does this happen? Who knows?
This is the mystery of P0x blogging. We can read and write and think we are serving the community but it still throws us a curveball.
So I guess the lesson is just to keep blogging away, be informative and be interesting and see where it takes you.
Now I just have to wait and see whether this will be a BOMB or a BOOM.
Stay safe and stay well and take care
