I Need a Fifth

It is nearly 5:30 in the morning on this Thursday morning, and I am being driven to drink. No, not really, but I thought it might be a good "hook." Did it work?

After downloading nearly 900 articles in seven days from another site, I recognize I never want to put myself in that situation again, so will always make sure that I save a Word document from here on out of anything I would not want to "lose." I have learned that lesson.

You may have also read a month ago that I was a Quarter of the Way through to my first redemption. Now, I am not even one-fifth of the way at 18 percent, since the recent pay-out changes have been implemented.

No, I am not complaining. I know the folks here at Persona Paper are working hard at making this a good place to build community, and it is growing. There was a decision to increase the amounts before pay-out will take place. There was an increase in the monetary value to our coins. All of these things are good business decisions, in my opinion.

What has impressed me since the beginning of Persona Paper, even though I have not used it regularly up until this point, lines of communication are kept open and, by doing so, it builds and maintains a high level of trust. When changes are made, the way they are presented to the community is clear and respectful.

But the fact is, I now need my fifth. I will then need four more fifths. Then I can redeem my coins.

I am grateful for two things at this very moment, the first being that I received 1000 coins for being a referrer of the person who won the recent contest. Honestly, I have not been around enough and did not even KNOW about the contest. I received an email notification from Will that I had been credited with 1000 coins. I was puzzled as to how that happened, until I read about it here. Without those coins, I would be at 9 or 10 percent.

And I also grateful that I am not really talking about fifths of alcohol or I would be in NO condition to write at all. emoticon :winking:

Hello there:) I'm not familiar with a drink measure of a fifth, what is that?

Sounds like you've been a most busy lady. : ) Pretty cool to find yourself a winner in a contest you weren't even aware of, I would imagine.

ison1 It's a 1/5 of a gallon, but now even less at 750ml. Here is the history/more info: Wikipedia link that may be helpful. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_%28unit%29

Feisty56 And I have to be at work in a 1/2 hour and not out of bed yet. *Runs off*
And yes, "cool" indeed!

If you happen to hit the old redemption amount at the old exchange rate, you can still redeem for $5 in the month of January. Just in case you need to do that.

Good luck reaching the payout amount. If traffic keeps increasing, maybe things will pick up.

I'm not worried about it, MaeLou , but thank you!!

It will happen when it's time. :)

The B-site owner lost my trust long ago. I'll keep posting there till I reach the cash out minimum, then boogie on out. Of course, this means I'll be posting there for a while.

As I am at $3 now, I doubt that I will worry about cashing out that minimum, as we all know what we would have to do with the time spent there, and they could change their policies, yet again. I just have to take the final leap and leave, but I will wait to see what the final 2014 payment does/comes in. Good to see you here.

Ha ha. I have been driven to drink extra coffee this morning after pulling my hair out over my photo image links not being clickable - and neither are anyone else's on my computer. Gah!

I think we'll all be earning faster here now, between the increased rate and the increased traffic.

CoralLevang wrote on January 11, 2015, 2:12 PM

As earning has not been guaranteed elsewhere and I haven't gotten too used to it, whatever is received here will be a pleasant bonus!

I seem to be getting stupider and stupider when it comes to technology.
