Letting It Ride
I still need to write a personal post for Dawnwriter 's A-W Category Challenge , so I thought I would write about a milestone I reached quietly this week. In fact, it happened when I wasn't even looking!
I think it sort of crept up on me overnight while I was sleeping. At least, I discovered it in the morning.
I had been waiting for it to happen, you know. I could see I was close, but I wasn't sure when it would happen. Soon – maybe a few hours, maybe that day or the next. But watching a counter on your computer screen is about as effective as watching a pot in hopes that it will boil!
So I went away and did some writing and interacting. I did some offline stuff and tried not to think about it. And when I came back, my progress bar was all filled in: I had reached cash-out point on Persona Paper!
It took almost exactly five months to earn the 5,000 coins – or approximately 1,000 coins per month. In that time I've written 90 posts here on Persona Paper, which is considerably less than I've been doing on the other site. I suppose I really ought to step things up here!
It's a little disheartening sometimes for the earnings, but I am investing in this site in the long term because I believe in this community and in the vision of the admins. I value the transparency of Persona Paper, and the fact that the admins have always been right on top of things like sudden growth spikes, spammy comments, or plagiarism that could drag the site down.
So rather than cashing out now, I'm letting my investment in Persona Paper ride. I'm waiting for elitecodex and MaeLou to raise the exchange rate, but I'm also banking on the efforts of folks like Feisty56 and LoudMan to recruit more members and stir up some activity here. I believe that Persona Paper has potential, but it's up to all of us to see to it that our hard work here pays off.
Let's see what we can make of this community!
