Becoming A Busy Bee

Beige Minimalist Paper Quote Instagram Post.jpg

This month, I realized something about Hive. It can be as addictive as a forum! Which is saying something, lol. I never liked social media, but forums are a different story.

This is probably the first month that I have been on Hive for hours every day. And I must say I am liking it.

While I did make two other attempts to participate in The Hive Power Up Day, this is my first successful attempt - as my new badge from @hivebuzz will attest :) !

Instead of making this a "normal" power up post, I thought I would tell you about some of my favorite things, which have really kept me coming back several times a day.

The Alive Challenge Daily Engagement Contest

This awesome tribe, run by @flaxz is focused on reminding us just how incredible life is, no matter your situation. There is a reason to celebrate being alive each day! The Alive tribe @iamalivechalleng reminds us to look for it.

Also they have a daily drawing for 1000 Alive delegation and 200 hp delegation for four weeks. What do you have to do to enter? Make a quality comment on the daily highlight, and then comment in the contest post with a congratulations to the person who was highlighted :) ...

It only takes a few minutes, and the highlighted posts are usually short and inspiring. I highly recommend it for your morning reading, it's a perfect start to any day!

A Tale Of Two Pizzas

This is a really great weekly contest and joint writing project! To enter visit @dibblers.dabs The story is about a post apocalyptic world, and the role pizza is playing in advancing its development. And yes, you get Pizza and Hive for supper if you win! But the fun is in getting swept away into a whole new world! But be advised that with the prize, if you stake it you can begin to use the Pizza command immediately! Check out #hivepizza

The Inkwell and Freewrite Communities

You can't think of anything to post? Then these awesome communities are your best friends! There are word prompts, tips for improving your writing skills, and plenty of inspiration! Also you will find people willing and able to both encourage and appreciate your writing.

Dreemport

A lot of the time I spent on Hive has been thanks to the posts which I found on an awesome new platform which features posts from Hive and many other places. This platform doesn't actually have any posts, instead it directs us to existing posts! Check it out, and meet some awesome bees! For more information visit @dreemport .

#dreemer

Comet Ranker

Run by @wil.metcalfe this initiative just finished what is probably the biggest contest in Hive's history with 2000 Hive in prizes. #cometweek was out of this galaxy! But it doesn't end there. @comet.ranker has an ongoing reward program where you can earn Comet tokens for future use. I don't know what he has planned, but there is no doubt that it will be BIG. He is committed to making comments important for everyone on Hive!

Proof Of Brain

And last but certainly not least, POB and its awesome community! One of my first experiences with Proof Of Brain was the weekly word prompt. In honor of this, it will also be the format which I use to make this post. If you want to learn more, and read other posts click #pob-wotw

There are countless other things and people which kept me coming back, and I do want to tell you about them. But I have to post this before the 2nd, so it will have to wait for another post. Thanks so much to everyone who made this power up possible!

This is a 100% power up post

Thank you for the incredible shoutout!

I love that we get to support writers RIGHT WHERE THEY ARE! No need for them to leave their current communities or network in other places! That's so important to us to support where writers have already built up their following and their tribes ;)

thank you for being such a huge part of that!!!

Congrats on the power up.
I tried the alive challenge. But they kept saying that I didn't comment on the highlighted post.. lOL
maybe I'll try again.
@dreemport is fun.
I've got my hands full to enter anymore right now I guess.

I'm glad you are starting to develop a fondness for Hive! We really are sometimes unaware that the things we do not know can be interesting for our lives ❤️ Cheers to success!

This post is all in one package @wrestlingdesires featuring outstanding happening on the platform.

Pob word of the week is my most favorite activity. The grading system they follow and provide heps me analyze my post's quality and status. It helps me improve in the areas I lack on.

@dreemport is an inspiration and motivation for many of us. It has brought us new energies and has brought us closer. We find the content otherwise hidden from our eyes and also find fresh eyes for our content

Exactly, without the help of so many people, we would be lost among thousands of others - but instead we have a family :)

It can be as addictive as a forum!

Ha.... When I introduced someone to hive for the first time, I usually tell them

"Hive is a wonderful place, but I must warn you, it can be quite addictive"

They usually doubt me, until they come on board, then, tell me I was right

I happen to have met flaxz on a comment box, but I was ignorant of the contest he runs, I will check it.

Yeah reading through contest post, especially pob-wotw post has been the highlight of my stay in hive. I do find many things to reflect on.

I love the fact that you came from an entirely new angle.

Kudos.

If I don't watch out, Hive will take over my life bwahaha. I love it way too much. Some fantastic Hive community members and their awesome projects have been highlighted here. All definitely worth a visit. I think I may have to start rotating between communities and engagement contests as there are quite a few very interesting ones now that I have yet to partake in. One thing I will not give up is my favourite word of the week :-) I must check out decency a bit more. Sounds like they have something a bit different going on and my curiosity is piqued ha ha. Great post!

Ecency is a frontend, and I highly recommend it because of the boost option. You get much better results on each post :)

How do you earn Ecency points and use them then? is there a dummy's guide anywhere I can take a look at lols 😜😂 I swear there is always something new to learn on the Hive🙄...hold that thought...it's a lot easier than I expected. Just signed in to Ecency, claimed points and I get it. That's really cool...had no idea of that. Will have to switch things up between the different communities. Thanks so much, @wrestlingdesires. You have been such incredible support to me since I met you. You're a good friend...I just had to go and edit this post again as for some reason 🙄grammarly keeps changing the word ecency to decency bwahaha. Doesn't it know the word Ecency by now lols

Thanks so much for your kind words :) The more you use Ecency the more points you get, also be sure to use them as a tag when you have an extra one :)

Nooo sadly not, I'm brand new as of May/June to blogging platforms and only joined Hive in June. May I played around with PublishoX, read.cash, noise.cash and Topixer but found no engagement on the latter two to speak of so have pretty much dropped them. i still post in PublishoX and read.cash as I have some other people I follow there and who follow me where there is no crossover with Hive, although I am seeing more and more familiar names of those active across at least two of them.
