Can microblogging on Threads replace Blogging on LeoFinance?
With the launch of threads, the lots of users here on LeoFinance wrote several articles addressing the advantages that threads had to offer. Both realistic and not-so-realistic, which I appreciated at that point since it was their own way of supporting the new innovation in the LEO Community.
In fact, those articles which marketed threads along with its many Pros made me see reasons to return to LeoFinance without any doubt while looking to utilise threads especially in terms of earning from microblogging since I'm not very good at writing crypto-related content. I literally struggle with it.
The marketing of Threads as an alternative to writing long articles while eliminating the need for deliberation over whether a content is long enough to be considered of quality or not is something I initially considered valid. In fact, I'm also guilty of marketing threads in this way. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Not just me but every other person on the LeoFinance community who marketed LeoThreads as an alternative to actual blogging. I know you reading this right now are probably wondering why. It's so simple.
On LeoFinance/Hive blockchain in general, we earn rewards for blogging activities when quality and original contents/articles are delivered. This quality contents are sometimes a function of quantity regardless of popular debate because it is practically impossible to have a 240/300 character content and refer to it as an article. The question would be- is the information passed with 240/300 adequate enough to be considered of quality? I do not intend to begin a debate, permit me to get back on track.
On the launch of threads, the most common marketing was that threads will be an alternative and will perhaps replace the need for long form content since information can be passed using shorter and precise words, plus the fact that more people will be able to hop unto the Leofinance train without the need for technical/crypto related knowledge. This seemed good initially, unfortunately this doesn't apply.
It doesn't apply because microblogging on threads cannot replace actual blogging on LeoFinance since there is a huge difference in the reward system between. The rewards earned from threading is negligible and insignificant compared to that earned from actually writing long form content on your blog, hence the newbies who got unto the LeoFinance train due to the threads hype are still at a major disadvantage since their ability to create only short form content will not get them very far.
While LEO/Hive rewards is earned from blogging, micro-LEO is earned from microblogging which isn't anything of significance, which means whoever intends to earn real rewards must learn the art of actual blogging and perhaps fill up his or her sleeves with some crypto knowledge in order to thrive on the platform. This defeats the purpose of Threads altogether. I guess it's time for a new rewards system to be implemented on Threads for the not-so-crypto savvy to stay.
The above leads to question - can microblogging on threads replace actual blogging? This question goes to you reading this right now and everyone else that may come across this.
In terms of the rewards system, my answer is No. I love threads but it is not a replacement, at least for now.
