How To Thrive On Hive...The Challenge!
A few months ago, I did a post that detailed some strategies that newer members of the community could potentially implement for their journey on the blockchain.
I feel like I can speak to a huge number of us because...
I had very little technical knowledge especially about blockchain when I first started. I didn't know a single person either. And to top it all off, I didn't have stashes of crypto I could flip and become a whale overnight.
I defined the grind on Hive. And these strategies I spoke about, seemed to work well for me. And not only on Hive, but across all platforms when it came to building a business. It did not require massive upfront costs, it did however required...Grind!
The original 'plan' was called the 5-500-500 formula.
It worked like this....
Engage with 5 different members of the community. Whether it's through commenting, re-blogging, interacting, whatever you felt comfortable doing...Just make sure at minimum you engaged with 5 different people a day.
Which led to attracting 500 followers on chain. This meant you were delivering value and was a good gauge on how well you were doing on Hive!
And finally, shoot for the target of reaching 5000 Hive Power. Simple enough, the more value you bring to the blockchain, the more you will be rewarded.
There was no time limit, just a plan to follow which I lived by for the first year of being on chain.
A few months ago, I revised the plan and basically put it down to 2 goals!
This was my little 'cheat sheet' I drew for it...
The first goal was to reach 1000 Hive Power. And I showcased some strategies you could use, everyday to learn about Hive, grow your account and continue to add value to the blockchain.
The second goal was almost a by-product of reaching the first goal because after you hit 1000 Hive Power, you could target reaching a Hive income level daily to grow your account. I set the target at 25 Hive per day. Which again, is not crazy and out of reach for most people on hive if they put in the work.
Again, I followed that up with some strategies people could follow to help achieve that goal.
(I know that reads 'plugging' on the second last point, but it's meant to say blogging lol)
I was looking at this list today and thought it would be cool to go over some of these points and maybe even create a little checklist to help you on your goals....
Here's how it works:
Step 1: Download the checklist here! It's a PDF file, and personally, I love to print things like this out. There is something very powerful about 'checking off' a calendar when you complete an assigned task for the day! If you can't print out the PDF, here is the image you can save if you like...
Step 2: Follow the steps outlined! These are just some recommendations but I know when I followed these, my journey got that much sweeter! While it's not required to do every single one every day, I know personally, it works! If you can't download the PDF, here is the image from page 2 with the tasks to complete each day.
Step 3: Do the work! If you skip this step, well...This isn't school. No one is 'checking' your work. However the best part of Hive is the community. So this is why I thought it would be cool to have a tag for this challenge...
And that way, we could monitor how many people are taking part in the challenge, support each other and I know personally, I'll be rewarding participants with some upvotes, tips and HSBI shares as well!
Heck, who knows....If this takes off, maybe we can get some donations coming in to reward participants and what not...However the biggest reward will be...
Seeing your Hive account grow! You will be adding value to the blockchain and in the process getting to build relationships with this amazing community every single day going forward.

This challenge seems fun and it seems I'm being on this path from the last year!!! The only problem is that at the moment I'm passing through an apathy phase and I can't shake it up, but I will try to keep up!! Thank you for posting this, @jongolson!!! Maybe this is what I need to shake it out! !CTP !PIZZA !LUV

I hear ya! Sometimes our worst enemy can be the one between our ears. But that's what this community excels at...Helping each other. Let me know how I can help!
Thank you so much, @jongolson! The reality is I don't know what's wrong with me. I used to enjoy writing every Splinterlands report I wrote weekly, but since two months ago I can't sit and write anything. I still have my daily statistics and I say to myself, "tomorrow I'm gonna finish belated my report", but then I feel like I'm devoid of all will. I don't know what's wrong with me. Thank you very much for reading and answering my comments, man. You rock!
You know what always helps me...Follow me here and see if this might help.
When I get low on content and things to write about, I usually read a book. That gives me a ton of ideas.
But let's say you want to focus on Splinterlands. What I would do, follow some of the video creators like @bulldog1205 and @infidel1258 and see what they are talking about on their daily videos.
That'll give you some good ideas on what the community is discussing and then write your opinions on it. Or watch a town hall too, and write some notes down that you think needs to be discussed more.
Hope this helps.
Thank you very much! That made me think. Maybe I need to switch doing content for a while. You know? It's not bad idea about the books. I'm an avid reader and I could write about those books I like, That's something that I've never done in HIVE. I love @bulldog1205 and @infidel1258! I never miss their Splinterlands videos and I love Bulldogs streamings! I will try to change a bit my Splinterlands content and see if I can create a conversation around the game. My reports I think are fine, but in the recent months for some reason I haven't had the need to talk about them. It's weird because I write almost daily about my progress in Splinterlands in Twitter, noise.cash, and now LeoThreads when I can. I will sleep on it. Thank you again for the support, man!
For sure, and the best thing is...You dont ever have to impress anyone. Just write about what you love. The 'right' audience will find you and you will attract them with your content and passion for your topic.
Thank you! I know this will help me a lot! !PIZZA
Really a detailed post! Thanks for exposing the #Thriveonhive tag to me. No one ever told me of it. I'll try all you've suggested and hopefully, someday I'll be like you! Thanks Jongo!
That's the steps I took. No big bank. No inner circle friends. No endless supply of crypto to cash in. :)

You make me think this chain will survive. Keep up the work.
it really is awesome what putting in the time on the chain can lead to. Pretty fun stuff.
Dude it's magical. I keep telling the story because I know what this place can do for you when we put in the time and effort. Life changing stuff.
Loving this idea. Success is about building habits and taking small incremental steps towards those larger goals every day. This is a great way for people to track, get motivated and build such habits.
Thanks man. Thought it would be cool that everyone could take part in. Don't need big bank, just some hustle and dedication.
Definitely up for the challenge!
I've set some end-of-year goals for 2022 and 2023, so this will come in handy to keep me on track.
Looking forward to following the journey!
This is cool, I believe everyone needs a personal checker even if this isn't a school, it's important to study one's growth pattern, have a strategy and know what works for them, for me. It's always staying adrift, being adaptable, flexible and accountable to myself. Following up and doing the background work.
I also added gaming to mine, just like you.....
The army called them battle buddies or something like that. We can hold each other accountable and help each other through the journey. Could add a ton of value for everyone.
You're absolutely correct, I think I haven't paid much attention to my goals lately, hustling in real life can cause that.
Thank you very much for sharing this wonderful piece.
I have been on hive for 3 month, a little process had been made but i think i want yo do more.
This look like secret and sure doing to walk to them.💕💕
Welcome to Hive :)
Yeah this place truly is magical. It just takes time and effort to really get things going. Hope you jump into the challenge :)
Feel free to mention me in any challenge that would help me grow please
I feel kinda lost, just moving slow
I followed you to know more and learn
Thank you friend 💕💕
Yipppee! What a WONDERFUL post about really engaging on Hive and making it work. I love it. Thank you for posting it and perhaps I'll try. :) Thank you for sharing your insight. :) Have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by Rosie! Appreciate it :)
Glad you got value from the post!
Yes it was a wonderful post! Great job! Have a great day!!
Wow, this is wonderful, even if I have missed the previous one, am not missing this and I really hope I can put something together too, I sincerely agree that coming here everyday is part of the things that leads to growth too
Great to hear it! Hope you enjoy the journey and the challenge helps :)
I think by the end of September, I can reach that number.
That is awesome!
Keep crushing it man!
I'm so glad I saw your post this morning. I was trying to follow your 5-500-5000 plan, but life got in the way and I have stopped being as consistent, in the last month or so, than I was when I first joined. One of the biggest challenges has been finding enough things to write about in order to create content that is worth people reading, and gets votes. I guess that's a challenge we all face. Hopefully a more disciplined approach may help to improve my ability to write consistently good content.
I have downloaded your checklist and will print it off to help me keep motivated. Thanks for your tips and encouragement.
I mean, don't worry so much about 'creating' if you aren't all for it right away. That's the best thing about commenting and engaging within Discord communities too. That stuff adds up and you are adding value to people and the community by doing so :)
Simple but effective.
Turn up every day and put in the effort and you will see the results.
Works every time.

Crazy right? If only there was a secret formula we could package up and sell to people that taught them that lol
This are helpful points not only for newbies but for some of us older ones on the chain. The PDF checklist you've created looks great. Chatting in Discord have been my weak point lol, am so hooked on Hive I just want to keep spending time on chain.
