In so many ways Humanity showed that they shouldn't have good things in their hands because they ended up corrupt, destroy or pollute.
With marketers and businesses rising through the years, the competition and advertisement increased exponentially as well.
Traditional social media is so polluted with bad marketers, bad ads and spam that the very few good ones stay lost in the middle or people gave up believing.
I don't want the same fate for Hive.
It is already being used to farm tokens, practice plagiarism or even to try hacking accounts but also being used to promote things in the most pitchy and spammy way.
If you don't like to be spammed or pitched, don't expect others to accept your pitch!
Hive should be a place to share your thoughts and passions! It should be a place to communicate with each other with respect building good relationships with people all over the world!
Of course, you can promote yourself and your business(es), but you need to think like a consumer and not a seller. You need to show them why you? Why your product?

Plagiarism is another nasty pollution! If you don't know what to write, don't go to the easy route and copy-paste what others already did! Or use it without giving any credit to the original author, text or images!
Hey, I get it that sometimes it's difficult to grab a topic and elaborate, but take inspiration from other authors and communicate with them!
Also, there must be something that you like to talk about without sticking a buy my stuff promo! You can use the bottom of your posts for that without damaging your content!
Provide value to your content and improve it by writing every day!
And by every day really meaning every day and not once every blue moon!
How do you expect to get some credibility and more followers by stop writing and come back after months? Or even worse, come back and throw a freaking pitching post?
Make this world a better place by being yourself and write the best way you can as you like reading from others!
When you don't feel writing, don't push yourself too hard, but don't give up either!
Have fun with it, push your inner creativity!
Better results and rewards will come eventually :)
