Buy Low Sell High
Yesterday somebody got 0.5 Ether for one Hive. Today it is trading at 0.000225 Ether for one Hive. There is not heavy trade @ionomy but some of the trade can be eye opening like this one. I admit it was only 0.29115654 Hive but still they walked away with 0.14557827 Ether which is worth more than 400 USD.
That was click bait
I have something more eye opening I want to talk about.
My real question is:
Why are there no comments on the pob-wotw post I entered yesterday?
Seriously I can't just pass this by. This is the first time I got tumble weeds since I entered the contest some months ago.
Every time I entered a post in POB I would always find some comments. This is the first time I have been ghosted here. That one comment was a comment I made myself linking the post to twitter.
Any guesses why there was no comment on that post ?
I really don't know. I understand that those who read it probably liked the Koalas who traveled from Australia to Costa Rica in search of the lost Zancundo tribe. So maybe you were all too busy to say anything or the story was not very engaging. Still I have posted worse stories in the past and got tons of interaction. It seems to be an anomaly. But I'm curious what is happening.
I think it has something to do with my interactions this week. I has been a very busy week at school and my wife and two of my fellow teachers fell ill. I had some additional classes added and some extra work at school and at home. I couldn't keep up with commenting on other people's blogs. At the same time the price of Hive did spike for a day and I was busy at the market and maybe other people were too.
I know that I posted the story at least 24 hours before the contest was finished but it was pretty late for a two week contest^^ Maybe it was the time of day. I posted in the morning. Maybe my friends got tired of waiting for me. I'm really not sure what happened by this is the first time I saw a post go 24 hours on my blog with no comment.
It may have something to do with people just too busy to look at posts this weekend. Or it may just be that my title and cover picture was not enough click bait for anyone to read the story. Or maybe my story was unrelatable.
The next contest
The reason I'm bringing this up is that the next pob-wotw contest will take into account participation and engagement so I don't want this to happen again.
For any community engagement is essential. If posts are not engaging we need to take a second and think about why and how we can make our posts more engaging. Just continuing to post without reflection cannot be an option. So I used this greedy clickbait to get an opinion from you.
