One Hundred a Day? Are You Crazy?

Since I met my 10,000 coins level four and a half days before my goal of June 30th, I feel the need to set a new goal for June 30th. It is something that needs to keep me focused on the goal to reach my first payout by my 60th birthday on August 10th.

To break that down, it means that I have 3334 coins to meet that goal. I have 45 days to complete it, which is going to be a challenge, as that means I need to increase the level by an average of 75 coins a day.

Is it doable? I do not know if I can keep up that pace, as it will require me to investigate more writers and start commenting on more than those who show up on my notifications. It will mean that I spend more time finding the time to write, around my job and life. But, unless I try, I will never know.

I have found that if I set my goals a bit higher than what I need, I work a bit harder. I can also become more stressed out, so I will do my best to simply stay on target, and do what I feel I can do, knowing that I have no control over anything outside of my jurisdiction. With that in mind, I would like to strive for 100 coins per day until my birthday in August.

My goal in the next 4 1/2 days is to reach 10,400 coins by 11:59 p.m. on the 30th, by submitting 25 new entries here.

Am I crazy? Perhaps...but I hope that I am in good company.

It all depends on how much time we are willing to invest in an attempt to achieve a goal. Personally, I struggle to provide one post a day here!

I am not unlike you, Mr. Kasman !
That means, I might scrap this well before I get to 60! emoticon :winking: If I could trade this in on someone buying me a bottle of good single malt whiskey for my milestone day, I might be pursuaded! LOL

I am most anxious to see if you make both these goals, Coral! I sincerely hope you will, dear friend emoticon :smile:

Just remember to relax and enjoy yourself while aiming for this. If you stress yourself too much you will not finish

Ruby3881 Thank you, Kyla. I am going to do my best. I cannot control others, but only myself. :)

Thank you for your support, CalmGemini !

I feel like I get a hundred every day or two, so that would be an average of 75 a day. Yeah, you can definitely do it!

I'm going to give it the old college try, AliCanary .

I do find, however, that since most people do not go to a profile page to look for articles, that writing more than 5 a day, makes them disappear from view. As most don't seem to explore past the front page, sometimes things get very few views and comments.

I wish that there were easier ways of seeing others' archived lists, than just what's in front of one's nose.

I think commenting, which you are doing a very good job of, helps so much, because in addition to paying the coin, can send people back to you, and the way I do it is to go to the person's profile page and then to an article. That way people do notice older articles--you'll notice I commented n a couple that were already off the front page (trying to play catch-up, but whew! You've been very productive)!

CoralLevang Are you crazy? No, not at all. It keeps you going. You have something to look forward to. That is the name of the game.

CoralLevang wrote on June 28, 2015, 2:16 AM

Thank you, AliCanary , for your vote of confidence. And for the older articles. I'm trying to play catch up, too. Eventually, things don't show up on notifications, so I'm trying to go to the Browse mode and look for articles in categories, lately.

inertia4 LOL Thanks, but yeah...I am crazy, too. emoticon :winking:

CoralLevang Okay, everyone is a little crazy. I know I am and I have been told many time in my life. Oh well.

Good for you. It is not crazy to have that goal, but it will take time. You can do it.

MelissaE Thank you so much.
