Accumulation Through Networking .:. Hump Day Easy Talk
I had a short break from doing these "easy talks" as I didn't feel well lately with some weird headaches that don't want to pass... I'm still battling with them but doing much better than a week ago... On the others side, the weather was beautiful today, so I had to escape out for a walk in the woods... There was another reason to do so, but you will find it in the video...
Anyways, all this time being "absent" from the blockchain (engaging less than usual), I had enough time for thinking about some good and bad moves that I did in the past... Just to have a good direction for the future... Also, my huge goal of getting an ORCA rank until the end of the year made me think about my efficiency of accumulating tokens... And not just that, but the PRICE that I should have to pay to be "more efficient"...
All that led me to think about my content in the past, my audience, topics about I was talking/writing... Could I earn more if I create content on different topics? Would I get more upvotes if I create stuff in a certain manner? I mean, do things just to please others to give me an upvote... I suppose that I could and I suppose that it would result in bigger upvotes, and "easier" goal accomplishment... But, what about the price of doing so?
I remember the time when I came to this blockchain and my first posts here... I have done exactly what 90% of the newbies do... Checking posts from others, and trying to "copy" the way of writing (topic, niche) to get the same juicy results as those more elder members... I would take some short news about crypto, write around it and share it with others... The idea was to find bombastic titles and try to get attention from big whales... I have sold myself for upvotes...
After some time and help from other, more experienced members, I have changed my content creation habits... I got a weird idea that I CAN be MYSELF, have fun, and still earn something without dancing for whales... The idea was to create a personal network, or you can call it a community, of people who are on a similar level as me, engage with them, support each other, and finally, grow together... We don't need whale accounts to upvote us, we will be whales ourselves one day!
Now, 2-3 years after that, I'm still not a whale, but I am surrounded by friends who are dolphins and orcas here on HIVE! We are having fun, inspiring and motivating others, creating bonds, and growing together... Is there a better way of doing that?

Can love it, can hate it, but networking is crucial to growing in any social space there is. I also enjoyed the walk, very pleasant scenery!

This is true for me as well. Trying to see what others to do in the beginning to get the same results, but now I don't worry about that anymore. I do my thing and trust the process. The process is frustratingly slow sometimes though. 😂
Agree about this, but it's so much more satisfying when you do what you like! :)

The networking aspect is something people undervalue. I comment quite a bit but I should work on creating more blog content. However I just find it easier to be a consumer who comments instead.

Well, if that suits better to you, why not? I think that comments are a lot more appreciated today than they were 2-3 years ago... People are upvoting more and engaging more, which is awesome...
Thanks for doing that as you are inspiring others to do the same!

Whales notice or not people not at their level. But the key word is "notice", which might be a one time thing. One should not beg for attention, instead as you said, one should start networking with their own peers. Some will find common ground, common interests/communities and a common or similar path to walk on. A journey is easier and more fun if you have company. And yes, friends do upvote each other. It is natural, since you already have so much in common, to enjoy each other's content.
I don't know why, but one quote always comes to my mind when brainstorming about "whales": "They are in the club, and you are not a member..."
As soon as small fish realize that, sooner will be able to grow by themselves... creating their "own club"... It's not impossible to get into the "whales club", but it is much more unique, original, and fun to do it with your friends creating your own club ;)
