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.
