I just celebrated my 5th Birthday on Hive. I didn't quite make a couple of the goals I had. One goal was to reach reputation level 70, not quite there, at 69.79, so just missed it by thaat much. For those that don't know, the higher up you go, the longer it takes to move those numbers! I don't know why that seemed like a goal, there's just something about hitting that number. Anyway, not that concerned about it as I'm more of a curator than a poster anyway, I generally only do a few posts a week, although more now with running the drone community.
My second goal was to reach Orca level. Again still a ways off from that. I was able to invest a little more in Hive a couple weeks ago when the price was down in the mid-30s, and just powered up another 4K on todays PUD, hoping it would get me across the goal line. But again not quite. Looks like I've got a ways to go still, but getting within sight. I suppose I will shift my goal to be reaching it before my next Hive Birthday, so will still happen at (or about) 5 years.
I know there was some talk about changing from the minnow, dolphin, Orca, Whale model to more of a Hive or Bee based model, but haven't seen any traction on that. I'd still like to make it before a change, just so I can say I did. Again, just something about reaching that level that is enticing for me.
Well, so what does this post have to do with the weekend? Well, I plan to spend the weekend re-focusing some efforts on HIVE growth. This will be in the form of some additional posts, continued promotion of the Drone group (come join us!), and more engagement with others in the community. My work is finally starting to feel more in alignment so I can relax my compulsive workaholism (yes I am recovering btw) a bit and re-focus on some me-time to balance. I find generating content for HIVE posts a healthy part of that, so watch out for more.
