Another Thousand Coins Earned
Yesterday, I hit another small milestone, of 6,000 coins. I say "small" only because it isn't the FIRST thousand, or a round-ish number like 5K or 10K, but I know that for people just starting out here, it doesn't seem small at all. It might actually seem impossible! But there are people here who have made much more than I have, so it does come if you are persistent, keep writing and keep interacting.
In my previous coinage update, http://personapaper.com/article/13916-it-happened-today--my-first-5k , I listed how many days and how many articles it took to get each thousand coins, so if you would like to see that info, just click on the link. From 5,000 coins to 6,000 coins took 34 days and 17 articles. Now, if you are doing the very, very easy math, you will have spotted that I only publish, on average, one article every couple of days. I do read and comment a lot, so there's that, but seriously, I could have been a lot more productive. If I had written just one article a day, maybe it would have taken half the time. Two articles a day, and maybe it would have just taken a week!
Now, a dollar a week does sound pretty feeble, but these articles don't have to be very long or conform to a specific assignment, so they could take maybe ten minutes apiece to write. If it took me 17 articles to get 1,000 coins, that's less than three hours of writing, and it could be done in two days, with the 15-per-day posting limit. Of course, your results may vary: some of those coins came from leaving comments, and some came from additional views on older content (it happens). But the best thing to do is build up your "bank" of content by posting regularly. Good luck!
