59 Cents to 50 Percent

Little-by-little, we continue to climb.

Coin-by-coin, penny, nickel, and dime.

When the bank gets close to that halfway mark, you know that (once surpassed) it is only a matter of time before the pay-out. I like that feeling.

At $9.41, it seems quite "doable." I know it does not go any faster. Nor will it magically appear. It is all psychological.

Yet it simply feels good.

Having "won" 1000 coins during a challenge here at Persona Paper also helped. Again, it was a psychological boost for me to want to put in the effort. Until I was notified of it, I had not put in much effort here, though I signed up last summer.

I am grateful for the opportunities this site avails me. The "coins" are just a bonus above all of the other things.

Congrats! Hopefully you'll reach the half way point soon.

Every little helps, and I hope this interaction gets you a bit closer to the halfway point. After being spoiled at bubblews I do get discouraged here with the earnings, but there´s a lot more to online writing than just the money, and the interaction is what keeps many of us going.

I hope that you continue to get more coins. Congratulations.

The second 50% should be easier, as you have gotten into routine, and enjoy here very much.

colibry21 We shall all reach that point. :)

hollyhocks100 So very true! It is in the relationships we build, that we become rich.

nerdieeds Thank you. We all will with writing and interaction.

scheng1 Perhaps, this is true. We'll just have to see. Thanks for reading!

I am very near to 50% too. Perhaps we will get to cash out in the same month.

Every little helps, as a well known store has as its slogan round here!

Good on you. I agree, reaching the half way mark is probably the hardest part of the battle. After that it's all downhill, as the saying goes!

We are all in this together. This little community of people writing and making a few coins. I hope you are able to get your coins and watch them add up!

That's great news! Lucky you for being almost at 50%. As for me, I'm stuck at 7% ($1.47) and hopefully before this year ends, I'll get to 50% too.

I like your attitude! It's not about the money. As you say, that's just a nice little bonus!
