RE: Hive Is Changing Lives

Agreed!
I've started a new strategy where I find people making content in poorer countries, then sorta sponsor them, by getting them a Hive account, and then doing my best to make sure their posts do well. One kid put on a longboard race which i helped fund, he's now posting regularly, and is trying to get others to join.
This also had the added bonus of showing that I am legitimate, when most of the longboarders I invited in North America refused because they thought it had to be a scam because they couldn't wrap their heads around where the money came from. Now it's just a matter of keeping this ball rolling, and getting the larger scene to start to recognize that Hive is the best tool for growing a community.

It is a slow process but one I hope you keep clawing away at. We need 1,000 of such initiatives. If we did that, we would find more people succeeding.

That said, we still need a few more applications to fill in the holes. Hopefully we will see a lot of this throughout the year.

Yeah i love that Hive can be used in so many ways, and I think the potential is massive, but I agree the we have a lot of work to do still!
Personally I'm debating between making my own front end / token, or doing some kind of campaign where i ask for delegations to my HP so I can sponsor more people. It's either that or a proposal, assuming it would get funded.
Any suggestions with your experience here, as to what might work best, so I can do more? Or people I should talk to that could show me how to start something where people delegate me power in return for something?

A front end is always an interesting idea depending upon what you are trying to do. That could hold enormous potential.

As for support, many look to supporting with upvotes but it is equally as important to start engaging and mentoring newer people.

This is how we can help to pull people forward.

If you have a solid idea for a tribe/token, and a decent lite paper, SPI (Steem Power Investments) is looking for people to sponsor. :)

I think the idea could be huge. The white paper hopefully will be good too, but I’ve never written one before 🙏🤷🏼‍♂️

THey specified "lite" paper, which I presume means it doesn't have to be too extravagant, just a good outline of what you want to accomplish. Good luck!

I thought it was just a typo, and just assumed white paper. lol. Either way, I’ll do my best, and hopefully I’m not the only one who sees my vision.
Thanks for the reply.

Lol. That’s kinda what I thought the first time I saw the term but I guess it’s a thing now.

I live in Hungary, and nowadays my pension-like monthly income is about $250 USD. I think that I can call myself poor. Even to the standards of my own country, because the minimum wage in my country in the current year is around $558 USD per month, so nowadays I receive less than the half of the minimum wage in my country.

I do not even know how is this even possible.

Ok, so are you asking me to sponsor you, or why are you telling me this?
If you looked at my account you'd see I'm talking about sponsoring longboarders who are making skate content, so unless you plan to start posting skate content, then I'm saving my vote power for that.
To be fair, I took a quick scroll through your page, and it just felt negative. I think you need to do more networking by interacting with people, finding a good community of like minded people, rather than making posts complaining about how the last post didn't get enough engagement. Yes it sucks to make a real effort on a post that doesn't get seen, but consistency is important, and I just stopped scrolling after I saw a few negative posts. I wish you the best, but this isn't the way to get attention on Hive.

No, I am not. I tell this not only to you, but to everyone. Everyone, who see this comment.

Even more? Nowadays I often spend the half day on commenting.

Of course it is negative. What else would be after trying since 2017.05.17 (almost 4 years), and almost constantly getting ignored since then.

Then what is the way? Having a lot of Hive power? Sorry, I do not have much. I observed that most of the successful people have a lot of Hive power.

Well if this is how you are commenting on every post, no wonder you’re getting ignored. You’re coming across as someone asking for pity, and most of the time I’d just ignore comments like this, but tried to be helpful, and you just double down on the hopelessness.
You blame the lack of HP for your engagement, yet you have significantly more followers than me. Only reason my posts are doing well is because I’ve spent years growing my connections here, I bring lots of people to Hive, and people see that I am a positive force on Hive. Never do you once see me complain about not getting enough engagement on posts that get missed.
So clearly I cannot help you, because you’ve already made up your mind about why your are unsuccessful, and you’ve already given up.

Hopefully you can turn things around by finding the right communities or subjects to post about, but complaining will just hurt you. Good luck with that.

Mostly inactive followers. They left the platform long months/years ago.

I’m sure plenty of mine are inactive too, but I’m not trying to win the pissing into the wind contest.
I’d try to give you more positive feedback or advice, or tell you that even bad luck runs out eventually, but you’re clearly set in your negative mindset, and there is nothing I can do to help you like that.
