My Current Worth

What's my current worth?

Well, I'm $2.22 according to my Persona Paper bank. That's 2,222 coins from 40 articles. Anyway, I'd love to write down my stats but Persona Paper doesn't have accumulated stats from all the posts. No worries though. I won't go through each one of my forty articles to take note of the number of views, likes, and comments. Plus it doesn't work that way in Persona Paper. Exchange rate isn't one is to one.

Anyway, been here in the site for one month and twenty-three days. Wow! Look at how time flies!!! I sure am having fun! Are you? I sure hope so.

Back to my current worth and for this let me ask something. Go ahead and get a $500 bill. Step on it. Crumple it. Get another new mint $500 bill. See any difference? There are differences but look beyond these differences.

We are no different from the dirty and crumpled $500. We may look different, a bit used perhaps, ok, ok, USED a lot but we are no different from the shiny, mint $500 among us. They may look better but we are of the same value.

Others may look down at Persona Paper and whine and moan and complain about what we don't have here but does that make the site less valuable than other paid to write sites? Is the site less worthy to see our posts, thoughts, and articles written down here?

I thought so.

My current worth, your current worth, Persona Paper's current worth as a site and as a community is more than the collective coins and dollar signs in all our banks. It is much more than that.

My current worth is not the 5000 plus coins I have earned but much much more. I am interacting at a global level. I have learnt so many things and last but not the least all this is done so smoothly with no glitches. What more can one ask for :)

a man is worth just what he thinks he's worth
and you can't help that man think otherwise if he stubbornly insists on what he thinks he is worth
you put it succinctly, our collective worth is what will take this site to that height we are all dreaming that it gets
and I tell you, it's just a matter of time

allen0187 Absolutely, Persona Paper's worth is much more than the number of coins showing up in our profiles, it's the sense of a growing community will great future. Thanks for sharing this.

You. You're good. You have a gift. ;)

Seriously. And exactly.

And once people stop caring what "they" say and just get on with it, they'll realize how much better (richer?) off they are :)

Plus? Persona Paper ROCKS!

This is one of the reasons I'm glad we are earning coins that are subject to an exchange rate. Once the site starts to do better financially, that exchange rate will go up and all those page views and comments will be worth more :)

Well, I may be rumpled and crumpled, but I try to be, ahem, clean ;)

AliCanary , rumpled and crumpled, clean and still valuable... that is all that matters!!!

Thank you very much &LisaSteinmertz ! I'm glad that you agree.

Misspelled your name LisaSteinmetz . My apologies.

allen0187 wrote on August 3, 2014, 1:16 AM

My thoughts exactly Ruby3881 . The exchange rate will definitely go up in my opinion. As to when or how much, that really is something that we can think about or talk about, but in reality something a bit out of our hands. I'm happy to be writing for PP.

Thanks for the kind words SandraLynn . I appreciate it. Trying to get over a writing rut here. Perhaps, i shoudl jsut write adn get it over with. LOL!

I agree... Persona Paper... R-O-C-K-S-!!!

You are welcome man!

Persona Paper is worth more than the total coins that we have altogether. The relationship and community that we have here is immeasurable!

This site may not yet pay what other sites do, but we still have so much more than I've ever had on any site I've written on other than my blogs. I've thrilled over the formatting options. For that matter, I'm tickled slap silly just to have italics!
