I'm Starting To See Green

I am someone who likes to see evidence of progress in everything that I do. In the case of Persona Paper, it's watching my points total start to grow, but I'll admit that I find that to be a little underwhelming. I am a very visual person, and the uptick of numbers really doesn't quite do it for me. What does do it is that little white bar under the points total that charts my progress.

I didn't even really notice it until that first little swatch of green appeared last night. I let out a little whoop of delight that had my wife questioning my sanity. When I told her that I was seeing green, she automatically assumed that I had developed some sort of infection. When I explained the whole bar situation, she looked equal parts excited and relieved.

It's going to be a pretty slow moving little bar I think, but it's still something that I find to be exciting. it's at 1% right now, and I will be pushing hard to get it up to 2% today.

Mine has progressed slowly for months. But I don't post a lot either.

I think it's nice that we can see our progress and in real time too. No more guessing of am I doing this all for nothing, we can enjoy what we're doing and watch the progress of our reward grow.

I'm at 1% too. But considering I only joined a couple days ago, I'm pretty happy with my quarter of review. When I explained to my fiance that I had made a quarter, he was happy for me but I think a little confused. Little by little we'll get there!

Yes it is exciting to watch it. It makes you want to do more.

I remember when that happened to me. I was pretty excited to until I mentioned it and another member here laughed at me. Congratulation, though. Progress is good, even if it's slow.

Mine has started to move a little as well. Going to be a long job me thinks.

Infection--zoiks! I knew you meant money as soon as I saw the title. Good for you! I love seeing that I'm more than halfway to cashout, even more than seeing that I was all the way at the lower rate!
