RECENT ACTIVITY 7? How is that even possible?

It's Friday, March 25, 2016, Good Friday.

I was watching a 20/20 news documentary with my wife called, "The Wolf Pack" and it was funtastic to watch. I checked here at Persona Paper and saw that the level of activity has dwindled down to 7. This is about the lowest I have seen it.

Why am I saying this? Well it is obvious. Hardly anyone wants to write for nothing. Even a few pennies will motivate some writers. I am motivated to write for free but even more motivated for a few dollars so I have not given up on this site. But I must admit it, I do not want to be the last man standing. It's time for change, and that is both literal and figurative.

It is hard for everyone to earn any pennies writing as the market is flooded with computer generated writing sites and blogs and websites in general. Automation is taking it's toll on the grass roots writer of the previous century. I have even recently read about websites that have title generators of which I believe I have listed a few in a previous article here this past week.

If one site's success is dependent on another site's demise then that is a sad thing. Like this town ain't big enough for the two of us, as they say in the movies.

But this universe is big enough for 10,000,000 blogs and writing sites. This is the age of knowledge on a global scale where thousands of countries are inter-connected via the world wide web. There is no excuse for failure. New ideas are hitting the web at a furious pace. I imagine this will eventually lead to larger hard drives and faster intel processors. Just because Steve Jobs is not around any more doesn't mean it's the end of bigger and better, smarter and faster. We have only scratched the surface of man's potential to gain knowledge and make the world a better place for all people. By the way, Happy Easter Sunday to all of you.

I have 15 on my recent activity list but that is an increase over yesterday. This comment and my previous will add another 2 to yourz but I don't know what may have dropped off! I still check the front page because an occasional new article is being postex and I follow anyone who posts that I wasn't already following.

We are trying to keep the site afloat until it either does a 180 or does a nose dive. I am hoping for the former. How come you can't log in to your myLot? Do you have a username and password? Does myLot have a Facebook site that allows people to interact and get updates about the goings on at myLot?
I located the myLot facebook page if you want here is the URL:

Everything that you say is sadly true. I wanted to become more active on persona paper but circumstances prevented me from doing so. But since it seems to be still alive, I think I should get going and write a few articles starting (I hope) in April.

I will be waiting for you and looking forward to reading your articles, frankie2015 .

I am thinking of writing something about the product brands that we are using. And give several things that we experience as we use it.

lookatdesktop wrote on March 27, 2016, 12:51 PM

I would very much be interested in reading about that.

I like it when there is a lot of activity. It gives me hope for this site.

In addition to this I once wrote an article about a mixer that we bought and it was a negative review not a positive one. I got over a thousand views on that single critique. Product reviews is a great idea to write about. People need to know what is good to buy when they spend hard earned money in these difficult economic times.

It's not the money for me. The reason I'm not here is that I miss the interaction. And I come back once in awhile here of course but I need more people around, especially now.
