Showing Support for Persona Paper
We've all taken a hit to our earnings here at Persona Paper, but there is still hope. Ashley is working on reversing the decision Google made about his AdSense account , and he is looking for other sources of revenue as well.
This is a good site that is seeing steady traffic, so I think he's probably right that they noticed the influx of new members and are taking a cautious stance for the moment. If this is the case, he was certainly right to cap the membership temporarily. Not only does this ensure he and his team have time to roll out more features and see to the smooth running of the site, but it shows Google that he is taking a proactive approach to the expansion. This site will not fill will duplicate content and spam, as another site might do.
Some people are asking themselves if they should continue to write for Persona Paper now that the exchange rate is so much lower than it was before. I've seen some suggestions that we ought to perhaps write a little more at the moment, to show our support. Something else we can do is to take the time to comment when we read another writer's work , and to promote both our own work and others' on social networking sites .
I've noticed that the number of post comments on another site increased when the profile comments over there “broke,” and it seemed as though maybe people were starting to get into a the habit of leaving a few relevant words after they read. Even though many of the same people are writing here as well, there seem to be relatively few people taking the time to write a few words to their fellow contributors.
I personally try to comment on just about everything I read, and have for quite some time. Whether or not it earned me any additional views or connections, I enjoy carrying on a conversation with the people I'm reading. It's part of why I enjoy web writing.
As for promoting, many of us do share our work on one or more social media platforms, but how many share the articles and posts our fellows write? I had only been promoting the most noteworthy pieces until recently – maybe a handful a day. But now I find I am pinning, Tweeting, or posting to G+ about one in every 5-10 posts I read. I do it more often if the post is informational and very well written, or if it seems fairly evergreen. So it depends on the kind of content I find in my feed.
But it's good for us as writers to be seen to be promoting the work of others. Conversing, liking, repinning, retweeting, etc. help too, and if we connect with one another on sites like Twitter or Pinterest we have the opportunity to do that as well. Anything that shows our followers that we aren't just out to promote ourselves gives our social media shares more credence.
Beyond that, I saw someone today mentioning that they've lost touch with fellow writers who drop off a given site, and they wish they had a way to find them. If we establish an ongoing relationship through social media, we won't lose track of one another when activity fluctuates on our writing platforms. People won't just disappear off the radar anymore.
So if you haven't got time for more writing in your schedule but you want to lend a hand to show your support for the work being done here, remember to comment and share. It's good for your fellow writers, and it encourages them to do the same for you. It's also great for the site too.
