30 Percent and Climbing
I have been rock climbing. Just once. It was in August 2012, just two and a half months after my surgery to remove part of my small colon and tumors from my mesentery and my liver. I had been diagnosed with stage IV carcinoid cancer just weeks before surgery.
It was at that time that I started to consider regular writing. In 2009 through 2011, I had been writing for Associated Content/Yahoo! Contributor Network. I had a blog, but was not very regular in contributing to it. Then in May 2013, I was introduced to Bubblews. Last summer, I found Persona Paper, but have only been contributing fairly often since the first of the year.
Though money on these sites is much leaner than before (AC/YCN are no longer in existence), I want to report that, as of this writing, I have climbed to 4080 coins worth $6.08. I am 30% to my first redemption.
When I wrote "$5.03 at Persona Paper Is Worth Much More" I shared what PP offers us as part of a community that is much different than what I have seen most recently at other similar sites.
In the past 16 days here, I have climbed by 5% and by a dollar and some change. Not much progress by many people's standards, considering having submitted 22 articles since that time.
But what I said two weeks ago stands true. I find this site to be friendly, caring and a great sense of family and community.
It is true that if money is the goal, then it's going to be a slow climb. But this site is ahead by leaps and bounds in so many other ways.
