My Life Without Hive
A few days ago, I came across @onwugbenuvictor post talking about his life without Hive and reading through his post, I decided that I should also share my life without Hive here.
Three years ago, I was working as a salesgirl in a store and got monthly wages that were although manageable but not enough for the family responsibilities that mounted on me as a firstborn child. I tried doing other menial jobs but my Job didn't give me much time for that. I worked out my ass every day of the week till I was so exhausted to lift a finger.
I knew I needed another source of income but didn't know what or how to go about it because I was ignorant about everything. Not only was I in need of another source of income but the stress of working in that store was telling on my health and physically too but I couldn't quit because I needed the job. I needed help, I was drowning physically, mentally, and health-wise but didn't know whom to run to for such help.
While I quietly searched for jobs elsewhere without futile, I came across a link talking about this platform, and my inquisitive nature took the better part of me, and I began to try out the link until I finally registered myself.
Two months after my registration, I could not make a post because I was so busy with work and wasn't sure about the whole stuff.
The month of October was a very challenging month for me but my salary wasn't forthcoming like I had expected and during that month, I decided to meet my boss and ask her for a raise in my salary because the deal was that a worker who stays after two years will get an increase but when I told her, she told me she won't be giving me any increase in my salary, without a reason.
I got fed up because the stress in the job was way above the salary I got and so, I decided to quit and stay home while I looked for a job.
I decided to give Hive a try and I must confess that the first weeks and months of being on Hive, helped me clear off my debt, treat myself of my illness and also celebrate the festive period with my family in a beautiful way that I never expected.
Currently, I am still in search of a job but getting registered on Hive and most especially the Saturday Savings initiated by @shanibeer has helped me see the future of what I will become with a lot of Hive and HBD in my wallet.
I invite @merit.ahama, @iskafan, and @khaleesii to participate in this contest by telling us their lives without Hive, and here is the link.
Beautiful post, I can understand the pressure that comes with supporting the family and can relate to the job part that you work your a*s off and still get paid peanuts.
I'm glad you found Hive, I will looking out for more of your contents.
I am glad you can, that will be so thoughtful of you, I will appreciate it.
I am so glad you joined hive, I wish you all the best here.
I am glad I joined too. Thank you so much.
I am happy to hear that HIVE is improving your life; So, I decided to take a look at your HiveStats page:
This page shows that you are extremely active on HIVE. But since you have only 68 HP in your account, you are not receiving any curation rewards.
As you probably know, the HIVE rewards comes from interest on the HIVE POWER in one's account. Half of the rewards for an upvote go to the author and the other half back to the curator.
The minimum payout for the curation reward is 0.001. You need to have over 100 HP before you start receiving HP reward for every post.
I see you have a fair amount of HBD in savings. You might want to use the Hive Market to sell the next HBD you earn and turn that into HIVE POWER. The link below takes you to the HIVE/HBD market. The boxes on the left let you sell HBD to buy HIVE. The boxes on the right let you sell HIVE to get HBD.
I also see that you are not taking full advantage of Hive-Engine. Hive Engine is a side chain that distributes alt coins to subsidize your HIVE rewards. There are three interfaces to Hive-Engine. These are:
You can use Hive-Keychain or HiveSigner.com to log into all three sites.
Different communities on HIVE use different alt coins. When you stake the coins, you will start receiving curation rewards for that coin.
The best course of action is to sell the coins for the communities in which you are not participating and to buy and stake coins in the communities that you want to support.
Anyway, if you powered up more HIVE and staked the altcoins in your HIVE engine accounts, you would start earning more on the platform.
I would stake the CENT, POB, NEOXAG, the CCC and WIT because they have high curation rewards.
You need to have 30 LEO to receive curation rewards. I would probably sell it and PIMP. WAIV supports people who use the waivio.com interface.
BTW: I see you have 8 LUV. Once you have 10 LUV coins you will be able to start using the LUV command once a day in your replies.
You could just dump your alt-coins and turn them into money right right. But I think you will find that it is fun and profitable to play the hive-engine market and to buy and sell the coins and built stakes in the communities you want to support.
