I know we have a LOT of different front end applications on the blockchain...
I'm writing this post on one of the best it has to offer (@LeoFinance) and when push comes to shove, this is a blogging and content creation platform.
And I know there's so much more you can do on the blockchain but I'd like to focus on this core concept of...Creating content for this post.
It's how I came to know the blockchain and even though there is a movement to stay away from being labeled as a 'blogging blockchain', I think it's our roots and I'd MUCH RATHER write my content here, than off chain.
So for those that are told to...
Come to the blockchain...Write content...Get rewarded...
It can be frustrating to get started and keep going. Mainly because there is this belief that you can just pop on write a few words and then you will earn hundreds of dollars a week from your time here.
Can you earn some extra crypto by creating here?
Absolutely, and with the different tribes and tokens found on Hive-Engine, you can find the perfect niche community for that content...However the fact is, when you start out...It's going to be rough to get noticed.
Here's a few tips I'd like to share from my 3 years plus on the blockchain, that I hope can help you see how rewarding this place can truly be:
Show Up. Everyday!
I'm reading 'The Practice by Seth Godin' and this little tidbit really stuck out to me...
You are really going to be happy that you started building your brand and reputation on the blockchain today....Rather than in a few months when the world comes to Hive!
Think about it...How easy it is to stick out from the crowd now when there are only a few hundred daily content creators...When there are tens of thousands...It gets a lot harder.
So if you build up a portfolio of content now, when the masses come (and they ARE coming) you'll look like a star and you'll be someone people WANT to follow and pay attention to.
Think Of The Big Picture
Another gem from 'The Practice'....
But what this speaks on is how important it is to not only show up daily, but also to get away from building 'short term' goals as our focus.
The big picture on the blockchain is what matters!
I think it's part of the DNA of crypto...A lot of day traders and investors are here to make a quick buck and flip it...That's fine and all, but I feel the big picture is this...We are building a decentralized blockchain based community that has the power to change...Everything!
To me, that's why I think people need to get involved here, stay the course and keep growing with the chain and community!
Don't Be Too Cool To Reply!
Here's something I've noticed in building relationships on this chain but also in traditional social media....People LOVE to talk about themselves and what they are doing.
And what's crazy...Others pay attention!
You get followers and they share in your excitement. They engage with you and make a comment on your latest piece of content...
And then silence....Not a single reply.
But then you'll hear these same people complain about...
"I'm not getting as many followers as I used to!"
"Engagement sucks and is way down!"
"I am giving up!"
If only they saw the MASSIVE value it is to highlight, appreciate and engage with your audience.
If you haven't built an audience yet...That's how you do it!!!!
Please don't be the content creator that thinks they are above replying to EVERY SINGLE COMMENT that is left on your posts...Do it, and build those relationships we all say we value so much.
I hope these 3 tips help...This is such a remarkable place to build your brand, build your followings and even...With time...Build your crypto stacks ;)
