Three Dollars and Some Change

With $16.73 in my bank, I am only three dollars and some change away before earning my first payout here at Persona Paper. Admittedly, it has taken quite some time to get there. I am nearly 13 months having been with this site.

In all fairness, however, I have to also tell you that I did not start working at writing here until six months ago, when the "B-site" went through their changes. I was also not convinced that I wanted to write much with any site. I did not trust anyone. That is until I received an unexpected surprise of 1000 coins.

Early on, there was a referral contest that was launched. I did not pay much attention to it, and did not try to win anything. I did, however, have the good fortune to "recruit" Ruby3881 , who actually won the contest. Unbeknownst to me, the person who referred the writer who was the top referrer, also received 1000 coins. It sparked my belief in this site and its owners, elitecodex and MaeLou .

And now you know the rest of the story.

So how long do you reckon it will take - are you still on schedule?

CoralLevang wrote on July 6, 2015, 4:23 PM

Kasman I'm at 11152 as I write this. I was at 10588 at 1:00 a.m. on the 1st, so I have earned 564 coins in approx. 11 twelve hour sections, which is 102.5 coins a day. My target of 15,000 coins by 11:59 p.m. on August 10th required 4412 coins in 41 full days or 107.5 coins daily. I'm on track for that, but if I keep striving for that, I will surely make the payout amount of $20 or 13,334 coins easily.

I am only worried about my own contest here nowadays. LOL Can hardly keep up with that one!

That is so wonderful to hear. A good motivation for the rest. Hope this one adds to the coin bank.

You are almost there. I think you will make it with ease

I'm happy to read that you are getting so close to payout. I only have about $17 to go!!!

CoralLevang wrote on July 6, 2015, 11:09 PM

Cheri I appreciate the comment and support. The comments, however, add to YOUR coin bank. emoticon :winking: The more we read others' work, they get the views. The more you comment is good for you. The more we all interact is win-win for us all. It's why I would like for elitecodex and maelou to consider a way for us to go to someone's profile page and see a way to get to the first of someone's articles, rather than just the two pages on either side of where one is. If I have 30 pages, there is no easy way to get to the first ones or middle ones without going through each of them going backwards.

Thank you. We just have to stay consistent and we can all get there.

CoralLevang wrote on July 6, 2015, 11:12 PM

It really wasn't that long ago, and I was in the same situation. Thank you!

That is great! It helps us all when we see these positive posts.

CoralLevang wrote on July 6, 2015, 11:35 PM

Thank you, Shellyann36 ... Life is what you make of it!!

That makes 363x6.7 coins. - 2400 coins. You will know how many days it will take depending on your average per day earning. My best wishes are with you.

Here's to seeing you reach that magic number of 13,334 coins before your goal.

Poof! Suddenly a wild 1000 coins appear! I'm glad you made the choice to throw your hat in the ring with us.

AliCanary wrote on July 7, 2015, 5:33 PM

Oh, Tish, I love it when you talk statistics.

CoralLevang wrote on July 7, 2015, 10:40 PM

Oh, Gomez. You know what does to me. emoticon :winking:

CoralLevang wrote on July 7, 2015, 10:41 PM

Yes, I have done that daily to see where I am. Thank you.

CoralLevang wrote on July 7, 2015, 10:42 PM

That would be cool! I haven't looked at the coins while working, so not sure where I am for the day. It will be like that this week, not having the time to spend writing. Next week, however, I can devote several hours, again, each day.

CoralLevang wrote on July 7, 2015, 10:44 PM

AliCanary That is exactly how it felt. And I am glad that I did, as well. I really like that there are several of us putting our efforts here, as we did with other sites. It's feeling like community again. :)
