15 Ultimate Tips & Challenges For Every Hive User

in OCD11 months ago (edited)

Dear Hivers,

In this article, you will see 15 ways to make the Hive club stronger than ever. These are simple ideas you can explore right now. It includes a mix of tips, tricks, and challenges. Applicable for both new and old users.


In fact, as you scan through them, you will find some ideas are easy. Some interesting. And some new. So go through the list and pick what you love.

#1: Start by expanding your boundary [Tip] 🎉

For new users: This is the most obvious yet important fact. You see, as a new user there is a good chance you are in love with yourself. You love your profile — your wallet — and your notifications. Self-love is great.

But you may want to get out of your profile — and explore what’s out there. This is the first important step: to expand your boundary. To remember that Hive is a social blockchain.

#2: Explore new communities [Tip] 🎉

How do you expand your boundaries? By exploring new communities. @Peakd has a page that shows you featured communities along with popular communities.

Go on a hunt and find new communities. Subscribe to them. In fact, you will be surprised with some of the new ones out there.

#3: Pick a goal — and smash it. [Challenge] 💪

Select your Hive goal and then achieve it.

A goal can be as simple as publishing an article every week — or earning 10 Hives per day. Leaving 5 comments per day? Pick anything you like and achieve that goal.

My personal goal was to write every single day for the next 30 days. I am on day 41 now — exceeded the goal.

#4: Check out the new dapps. [Tip] 🎉

You already know some of the popular dapps. But it gets even better as many new ones are here. Check them out:

For more Hive dapps, go to: Hivedapps.com / HiveProjects (currently down)


#5: Power up at least once… [Challenge] 💪

Add Hive to your wallet. Then power it up. If you find that risky, then take the risk. So much in life is lost for no reason. So take this small risk. And power up at least once this month — even if it is 10 Hive.

Feel free to follow the #HivePUD challenge as well.

#6: Attend Hive live events [Tip] 🎉

Yes. They do exist — and it happens mostly on Sundays. On Discord channels. I attended a live music concert and absolutely loved it. There is no “one place” to find them all though.

You can still visit this old post to find the schedule. Join the group and participate next time.

#7: Write your best guide [Challenge] 💪

Sure, Hive is a censorship-resistant platform but it is also your playground to share anything and everything. So produce a content that has been hidden in your heart — for weeks, months, and years. And then publish it here.

I call it the ultimate guide. Because, you see, we all know something in life. If you can take it out and spread it, you will see new miracles.

Additional tip: Use subheads — write short paragraphs — pick simple punctuations — and sprinkle unique images. All this will collectively make your content a delight to read.

#8: Increase your achievements [Challenge] 💪

HiveBuzz makes it incredibly easy to check your achievements. Just go here and enter your username — you will find all your badges. See what “new” can you achieve this month.


#9: Browse new faces [Challenge] 💪

Once in a while, I love visiting the #introduceyourself tag. It is a great place to see why people join — and their motivation behind it. This is a challenge because we often forget our surroundings.

#10. Connect with someone new [Tip] 🎉

One way to do this is through the search bar. Try typing in your city or country name. See what comes up. Read the article. Follow the person.

#11. Participate in a challenge [Challenge] 💪

There are photography challenges. Even engagement challenges. And #Hive5 on Twitter. Participate in a challenge for your own growth.

Also, browse through contests. This #contest tag is all you need to find new contests.

#12. Tip someone you love. [Challenge] 💪

No matter how small or big— a tip is a great way to make anyone smile. I will never forgot the Hive tip I received on my birthday for a cake — and I always remember every tip I receive through articles. Really: It is the thought that counts, isn’t it?

How to send a tip: Use @Peakd. Or transfer through your Hive wallet.


#13: Don’t forget to encourage others… [Challenge] 🎉

Buddha talks about the power of giving — and why giving changes your life. It is true even here. And in life. So if you can give something, always give encouragement — leave them inspired.

You can always vote or add motivation in your comments and articles. Even a compliment works.

Remember: What looks something simple to you is often a profound thought for someone new. Add motivation in your post — inspire and move people. This is a way to contribute to the society.

#14: Recommend ONE person [Challenge] 💪

To join Hive.

It could be anyone — online of offline. You can also use Hiveonboard to create a referral link.


#15: Celebrate your time [Challenge] 💪

Challenge? YES. As adults, we forget the simple pleasures of life. And did you know: it is also World Chocolate Day today? So take a break and celebrate your time — break that KitKat and add more sweetness to life.

Let's also not look for the wrong — rather appreciate the variety. Just celebrate your time within community. Be raw, real, and authentic. And be enthusiastic and positive.

Just have a good time, you see.



That's quite a list, isn't it?

So there you have it... 15 important tips and challenges you can try to take your Hive experience to the next level.

From setting goals to browsing and participating in this ever-growing community... these 15 tips are a mixed bag of ideas.

One key point to remember: Hive is a self-fulfilling system.

You add value to the Hive ecosystem. And it adds value back to you. That's why I thought it would be fun to create this list.

And with this, we complete this article. Once again, I hope and wish you found them useful. Took me a lot of time. So pick what you like, try them out, and see what comes out of it.

Beautifully written and oh, so true!

Ha! Thank you! Appreciate your ongoing support. Means a lot.

Really good stuff you keep churning out here :)

I try. And you know, I never got a chance to thank you! Your DP always stands out in my notification. Love your support.

Thank you so much for your ideas and insights! I achieved one challenge and bought some Hive from Bittrex. Now my next challenge is to find out how to deposit it to my wallet! 😆 I'm sure somebody knows how. 🤣

Hahah! Wow. Nice. Always feels good to add some Hive. I see you have deposited it already. SMART!

Glad to connect.

Yeah, feels good! Oh, forgot you could see what's on the blockchain. Yes, that was the goal. Get it on the wallet and go from here. Good to connect with you too!

I have bumbled into doing a lot of these in my journey... they WORK!

For those who are like, "That's a lot" -- yes, it is. Do what you can and build up, consistently. Let me tell you where you will get to if you stay at it ... you will be a valued part of many communities, and they will encourage you to do more (if you want to write every day, join Freewriters, and if you are a good writer and can produce high quality work at least once a week, join The Ink Well -- if you are an artist, join Art, OnChainArt, Sketchbook, and Alien Art Hive -- if you are into music, there are a bunch to search for in communities, depending on your genre, but if you can write a little about what you post up, DEFINITELY join QSounds). The more you do and the more support you get, the more that 10 Hive in a day becomes doable once, twice, maybe once a week, maybe more.

You'll never know what you can achieve unless you put the work in...

I love this! The last line hits home! Perfect. Everyone should read this again and again!

Quote it at will, friend, again and again -- from someone who makes 10 HIVE almost EVERY day now!

Thank you for the really useful tips @sidwrites, congrats on surpassing your goal;)

Hi @lizelle - I always appreciate your support. Thank you! Old goal is replaced by new ones. The show continues. :)

By the way I am also starting my 30 days challenge I hope just like you I could surpass that challenge.

Too bad I wasn't able to include #introduceyourself tag.Thank you for this hive guide!

Haha! It's okay. You can try. In fact, once in a while, we will have a #reintroduction initiative as well.

Well, I'm a few days late to this post, but I guess better late than never, eh 😁? As always, this is a pretty great guide to all Hivers... Hive-ains (have we decided what to call ourselves, already?), both new and old folk who've been on the chain. The best tip that I can always given, and you've summarised it beautifully... Is to engage.

Post, comment, chat, reblog, upvote, and generally engage with whoever that might be. There's an amazing community out there, with many different interests and niches that are left to be explored. Go out, and find those wonderful people to hang around with 😄

Well, I'm a few days late to this post, but I guess better late than never, eh 😁?

Well, I am writing this comment 5 days later. Definitely better late than never. 😁

The best tip that I can always given, and you've summarised it beautifully... Is to engage.

And you, sir, are a master of it. Always love your comments! Thank you.

Haha, cheers to you too! It might be 5 days later, and I nearly forgot my comment here was made in the first place, it's always nice to get to reply :-D

This is awesome man. Great tips and a post that every Hive owner can benefit from. Thanks for all you do!
