Well, the kids are finally back in school. 6 months of them being at home and personally I found it difficult. But facts are, winter is coming. It all feels like an episode of Game of Thrones. Covid being the white walkers. Within a week, 2 local schools have already sent home classes to be quarantined for 2 weeks.
With the kids being home for so long and the fact that I work around them means I got very little done. The pile of work that was building is going to take me ages to clear. I just hope my kids get to stay in school for at least 6 weeks so I can try and catch up. And obviously I hope we all keep well.
In the meantime, I have started to promote hive again and the Excel for ALL hive community. I have updated my website to reflect the learn and earn activities are Hive based (obviously my website is connected to hive using @steempress) and I am including links in my weekly newsletter.
My Hiveonboard account tells me I have referred 24 new users. Although only 3 of these have had any activity, and it has not been steady regular activity either. But this is not a bad thing. After all, I have said many times, we can not all be creators and bloggers. We need content consumers and that's exactly what these users are. The problem however is that if many of them signed up via my website, they would not be aware of the likes of Peakd to find other content. However, those that have signed up to join the community would have been given a link https://peakd.com/c/hive-102332/about and so have the opportunity to explore the platform more.
The aim now is to continue to promote the community and to continue doing what I have been doing with steempress and to press ahead trying to grow my community. There are many very successful Excel communities out there, and there are also plenty of spammy terrible ones too. with so much competition of successful communities, this is not going to be easy.
If you would like to check out how I am promoting Hive on my website do check out my latest post. You will see the steempress comments in action and you will see a community invitation. The website gets over 25K visits a month, at least it's a little visibility for the blockchain.
Anyway, I hope all of you peeps are doing well? Whats been going on with you? Have you any news?
