I Missed 3 Days in March!

avatar

Yeah, I know, the title has no meaning to you... yet.

As people start to post less frequently during the bear market, guess what was on my mind? To investigate which was the last day when I missed my post. By the way, do you know an easier way to do that, other than scrolling through your posts? A "your daily posts streak" stat would be useful somewhere, especially when the activity drops.

And yep, I discovered it:

At the end of February and beginning of March, I missed 3 days in a row. Followed by a "writer's block" post, meaning I wasn't feeling very comfortable writing. I may have been affected by the war next to us, which had just started and, like all wars, kind of has this side-effect of messing up plans and making people emotional.

So, March 2nd... How long has it been since then? Four months and 2 days of daily posts!

Nice! I'm becoming at least a medium-term posting performer on Hive for that.

I remember a Crypto Maniacs podcast when @arcange was invited.

They were talking - among other things - about the possibility to have a 1-year daily posting badge.

@arcange said it would be very scarce, only @taskmaster4450 and potentially one other person would have it (at that time, for the year behind).

Yep, that would be a very difficult badge to get! But I'd still like to try before I get too lazy and give up on my daily posting routine.

3 other one-time badges could be:

  • 90 days of continuous posting
  • 180 days of continuous posting
  • 365 days of continuous posting

Why the last one and not the yearly badges? Because your streak could start at any date and end 365+ days later. Doesn't have to start on January 1st. Yeah, maybe I'm biased because my streak was broken but I still have over 4 months of daily posting since then.

How can this daily posting help you with your goals of financial nature?

Well, there are the rewards. And they compound over time.

But other than that, they give you discipline. Feel like it or not, have something to say or not, you have to find something to write about.

Depending on your topics, regular posting can improve your research capabilities, creativity, capacity to discover retain and deliver information, communications skills, and many others.

Forget about how the bear market affected your portfolio! Post because discipline will make you a better investor.

I think so too, but I'm cautious about that. That might be it. From crypto PV, it has plunged enough. The two variables that remain are time (how long will remain near the bottom) and if a probable recession will translate into crypto going deeper.

Good advice, Adrian. I like the idea of awarding consecutive postings.

There are already 2 badges and 1 accomplishment you can get based on posts on HiveBuzz:

  • the accomplishment based on the total number of posts
  • weekly author badge (received every time you post every day of the week)
  • monthly author badge (received every time you post every day of the month)

Most likely. We've been through this before. That's how bear markets are.

Consistency is only as good as you have time for it 😉

And assume this activity yields most value for the time spent.

Yes, that's true. I know people who don't post but do other things very well.

While I don't earn a fortune by posting, this is an activity that has helped me as an investor too. I became more disciplined, I do research more often, and more.

Consistency and discipline are truly required.

This is something that is vital for those looking to succeed. The project by @arcange of monitoring posting is a terrific way to direct one's focus.

This is exactly the point I was trying to make. Hopefully, it gets through to more people. Whether it's posting or another activity, without consistency and discipline it's very hard to succeed in the long term.

I am highly confident it will not. Jon and I keep harping upon this on CryptoManiacs.

For most, they want to get rich quick and feel they should get a lot of upvotes for doing very little.

Those who understand what you are stating will be the long term winners.

Just be consistent, Bob. Discipline comes in time, if you don't have it from the beginning.

I totally agree with the discipline and consistency despite the market woes. And it would be really awesome if there is a badge for 90 days/180/365 days :)

I believe arcange said HiveBuzz would need a revamp anyway.

Not sure if he said he'll do it. But that would be nice.

Check out the Hive Layers tool.

Put your Hive username into the box on the left and press enter.

Gives you everything you're looking for :)

Although a post(content creation) preludes social intersection, it is engagement that really creates that web of social intersection. So I would rather be more interested if engagement is given more weightage than content creation. However, at the same time, it must not end up in spam content or cringe content, that will otherwise diminish the overall quality.

What is visible at the front end is surely a post. So the post quality should also be good because that is the gateway to this ecosystem, it is through that quality one might be interested in engaging.

You are so deeply integrated that now you have your own epoch or interval of content creation, and your content is really useful, sweet, and succinct. And yes writer's block is a thing. You and @taskmaster4450 are living examples. You can call @taskmaster4450 a factory of content creation. The most important thing is that he is damn consistent, unabated by the bear or bull market.

I definitely agree. Posts without interaction are missing something that gives them life. And when author by habbit doesn't respond to comments, it's sad.

We will have the short form content from Leofinanace where content won't be posts, but custom jsons. The interface will resemble Twitter probably.

Task is indeed a never-ending source of content. I believe that's because besides consistently and discipline, he also consumes a lot of content, from where many of his ideas come.

It is, to be honest! I didn't think I had such a long uninterrupted streak.
