Persona Peeps are Busy Bees!

The last time I paid much attention to my bank balance I had something like 8,000 coins in my bank. That had brought me back down to the 59% mark on my progress bar because of the higher cash-out point that came along with our rate increase, as I'd mentioned in a previous post.

I knew that I'd earned money and that the percentage-point drop was simply a matter of the cash-out point being raised, but that number seemed a bit disappointing all the same!

With the higher exchange rate, things sure move fast! Today when I came to check my bank balance I was already up to 76%. Now I had the advantage of winning 2,000 coins , which doesn't hurt my balance at all! That comes out to $3 at the current exchange rate, or an additional 15% of the minimum added to my bank overnight. But it's also just a lot easier to make a few hundred coins with more people here on Persona Paper.

There are more folks coming to view our posts, and an absolute ton of content to view and comment on! I'm actually overwhelmed, just with trying to meet all the members who've joined the site over the winter break. There are so many of you!

This is a big encouragement for those of us who've been here since the early days when we all got dinged because of the AdSense kerfuffle. It's lovely to see so many new accounts popping up, and people posting and interacting busily.

Good things are coming for this community! We are all going to reap the rewards of deciding to be cautious and to grow the site organically. The result is, as people are joining from other sites where things aren't as well set up, they really notice the difference.

I am very new and have only done a few posts so far but I am enjoying it so much. It's nice to be able to read other people's posts and comment on it and feel the love in return. :)

Peeps or PPers. Make up your mind (lol). I prefer to call myself PPer emoticon :smile: And congrats on those 2000 coins. You deserved them. Today my activity page is buzzing with activity and I like it.Normally it took me about half an hour to sit with it and today it is more than 90 minutes. PP is raring to go and so is my bank account. Yippee !

I have only been here a few days but am already addicted. It has gotten busier since I started.

I like the community here a lot, but it's hard for me to see myself doing well earnings wise. I'm just not a very good writer and never know what to write about.

I'm a total tyro here, and though I had an account on Bubblews, it was so glitchy for me that I didn't post and just perused, liked, and commented on other people's posts until it just became so unfriendly in terms of crashing my laptop, etc., that I gave up. I found you there via seren3 , my writing partner.

Thanks for this enlightening post. I'm new here; I've only written two posts, but I've started a list of things to write about. I look forward to being active and meeting other writers.

I can't wait until I have time to come on here for longer, I only have a short time at the moment depending on how long hubby snores lol. but my days will be my own again soon and I will be able to spread my wings with reading and interacting with friends I haven't met yet

This is my first day here and I really like it so far. I am still trying to find my way around and learn the ins and outs.

I've noticed a huge difference in activity in the last couple of days. Whereas I used to come on once or twice a week and would rarely have more than 20 notifications, if I'm gone for just a few hours I'm way over that number. Of course I've been posting more too so that probably has something to do with it too.

I joined several months ago, but I have not been very active, I plan to spend more time here. There are many familiar faces.

I am looking forward to actually starting to write proper posts here though I still need to get my head around this exchange rate and also make sure I understand all the workings here before I do so, though looking forward to it

I haven't been very active here. My coins are still stuck under a dollar. But kudos to you. You'll be able to redeem soon. Good luck on winning those coins. :)
