I jumped like a Lion but I fell like a Cow!

An old friend used to say this way, whenever he started a thing or action with a lot of enthusiasm but in the end he failed to achieve the desired goal: "I jumped like a Lion but I fell like a Cow!"

The same can be said about me and my initiative expressed through this last post: Maybe I'm a Leo - All Hive members should know this

To summarize in a few words, because I don't think anyone will have the time and interest to read the post, here's what it was about.

In many words, I proposed a relaxation in the topic allowed for the blogs published in Leo Finance. That is, in addition to the posts about finance and cryptocurrencies, more general posts should be accepted, with fewer references to finance.

From the moment I wrote I already knew that I was wrong and that such a change is neither desired nor possible. I continued writing because I wanted this post to be partly an example of a new form of expression, in which to mix several themes and even put a song.

I waited with emotion for the feedback, I addressed some who have a hard word to say in this community and I was afraid of a reaction, let's say, severe.

Well, I didn't receive the answer from them, a sign that they were probably amused by my proposal, but instead I received generous votes, a sign that they understood my desire to contribute with something to the growth of Leo Finance.

If we have an idea or a proposal, which we believe can bring improvements, it is good to express ourselves and those who matter can decide whether it is good or not.

The comments received once again demonstrated the interest for the community, for its unity and for the preservation of the identity. All those who commented said that the rules should not be relaxed and that the content of the posts should be about finance and cryptocurrencies, as the name suggests, Leo Finance.

Of course they are right, but I found that they did not understand or were not really interested in the message of my post. Maybe I could not be so clear in exposing the real proposal I made and the purpose for which I wrote this blog.

My colleague from Hive/Leo Finance and citizenship, @erikah, commented like this...

There was a debate about this already a month ago. You can read about it here and here. I truly hope rules won't be relaxed.

Very concise and with a very easy to understand ending, namely that she would not like a change.

So do @divinebeingness, @st8z, @cryptoandcoffee, @bitcoinflood, @bagofincome, @evegrace, @hykss, @fabian98 whom I thank very much for expressing their opinion so bluntly in favor of the rules of this community.

And yet, what I think was not understood! For example, @erikah, giving the example of @khaleelkazi's two posts in which she says that this debate was a month ago.
Of course, it was, but was referring to what kind of content @khaleelkazi wanted to see, Leo Finance content or non-Leo Finance content. It's just that non-Leo Finance content means strictly financial specialty content where Leo Finance is not referred to (so technical and informational content).

When I referred to non-Leo Finance content in my post, I was referring to a heterogeneous content, similar to the one existing in Hive but with a financial component, but this should be minor, not the main theme.

Of course, this proposal of mine was exaggerated, I understood from the comments of my colleagues but it was made in the idea that as many Hive members as possible be attracted to access Leo Finance and not be discouraged by the need for knowledge of finance, economics and crypto.

I wrote this post to make a marketing proposal for Leo Finance, namely, to try a promotion primarily to Hive members, by us, Leo Finance members who are also Hive members.

We, because each of our posts is published simultaneously in Hive, to introduce an invitation (direct or veiled) to our followers and readers in Hive.

That's why the title of my post was "Maybe I'm a Leo - All Hive members should know this

The rest of the post, about earnings, about the accumulation of earnings and about what should be posted, with my proposal to relax the rules was made to inform potential colleagues in Hive and stimulate their curiosity. Of course, after just one post, this initiative will probably not resonate, but if there were dozens of posts about it, I think there will be enough colleagues from Hive who will come with us.

Yes, I jumped like a lion, but I fell like a cow ... it was a supposed fall, I knew it would fall, but I hope that my proposal to promote Leo Finance to Hive members can be viable and accepted by as many as possible of our colleagues!

Maybe I missed the point as why are you marketing Leo to Hive? If you are on Hive and don't know about Leo already then you are not an active member of the community and live under a rock. There are users out there who only comment and reply to things on their posts and never read anything else and not someone you would want on Leo.
I think if we are going to target new audiences then by all means but not having a strategy of hitting Hive as the community of Hive is already here.

Just to add that by relaxing the rules to help others post something to earn Leo is not the right way to be thinking. This will only let milkers and abusers through the front door and it will be so hard to police. If you have seen what the other tribes have had to endure and fight then you wouldn't even suggest such a poor thought out idea. I have been fighting abuse for over a year on Sports and sorry for being so blunt but you need to understand what you are proposing is not in the best interest of the Leo community.

I can recall you mentioned that in one of your posts you were struggling to find things to write on Leo. There are tons of things when you think about it and that is why we have tribes. Not everyone is suited to writing on Leo like I couldn't do photography to save my life. I am not asking them to bend the rules so I can post there or anywhere else.

I totally agree that there must be rules and that they must be followed!
I'm also convinced that you have much more experience than me and that is why I think you are right in what you say. I try again to explain below the reason for this proposal.

I made a suggestion only in a certain context, that of facilitating the enrollment of new users and I considered that those who are already in Hive have already done half of the action to register and it becomes much easier to access Leo Finance.

From what you say, it appears that the people from Hive must come to Leo alone, not attracted by presenting the advantages in a minimal marketing process.

I thought Leo needed new users, increased traffic and I came up with this idea. I exposed it and saw that it is not good... but it can be improved. At least try to enroll more of Hive in these conditions and rules. Because we have a great advantage, our posts also appear in Hive.

Of course, the other enrollment process, from the outside, if it gives results is more advantageous, both for Leo and for Hive. I haven't seen many new entrants yet but I probably don't know where to look for them.

I'm sorry that this proposal reminded you of unpleasant things in other communities, probably the area of ​​interest of that community (Sport) attracts a certain profile of users, often seen in stadiums. I'm active in several communities, such as Haveyoubeenhere; Photography Lovers; PowerHouseCreatives and I haven't seen such reprehensible things.

I can recall you mentioned that in one of your posts you were struggling to find things to write on Leo. There are tons of things when you think about it and that is why we have tribes. Not everyone is suited to writing on Leo like I couldn't do photography to save my life. I am not asking them to bend the rules so I can post there or anywhere else.

At first I thought there were tribes in Leo Finance and I searched, but I couldn't find it. If there is, I'm sure you'll help me.

Then I understood the suggestion, thank you!
I didn't come to Leo to save my life, I know how to take pictures (I can prove it with my posts from Hive) and that won't save my life either. I came to Leo Finance because I saw more life than in Hive. I will leave Leo when I see that I can't write a post... but for now I can, proof of my last three posts that I wrote almost out of nothing.

Yes you have proven you can write on Leo without question. If one thinks there is so much you can write on that isn't crypto related. I do a post updating work issues in my business and that is financially related. If you think there is endless stuff and don't need to make it easier for anyone as what can you change?
I know Leo is onboarding new users from outside as look in discord in the section welcome to the lions den. Then you will see how many are coming from Hive and outside. Many names I have never seen before so I would suggest maybe from Metamask.

Thank you for encouraging me if you think I can write in Leo. I'm sorry this discussion took so long. I agree that those who are familiar with finance and crypto should express themselves here first.

I am very happy to hear many new users sign up and I am very curious what Leo will be like in a few months. I hope very good!

Yes I think anyone can make it on a tribe like Leo but more thought has to go into the post I believe. This scares a lot of people away yet it shouldn't. If you are ever unsure of Leo's growth jut keep popping into discord and seeing the new users coming through. I do think it will pick up more and more and this place will boom at some point. Hive will as well so don't forget about Hive as there are so many other tribes to be connected to as well.

No, I will not neglect Hive, for me Leo is like an experiment and a test (of my possibilities) but Hive remains the main concern. Thanks!

First of all, I want to say that I am 100% convinced that there are still many people of very good quality in Hive and who are not yet in Leo Finance.

i think we need to target the masses first not the current members. Let's target for the big crowd out there and if we do so it will benefit both LEO and Hive to the extreme!

That's right, but do you see that happening? I proposed Hive because it's easier. Years ago I tried online marketing, I had to enroll as many as possible to earn a few dollars and I remember how hard it is to convince someone to enroll in a program.

if we market the money aspect, the free speech and block tech we gonna attract a lot i think. i know what you are saying though, it's not easy at all but on the other hand i haven't seen a well-structured marketing plan for the outside "world"
