I AM QUITTING HIVE πŸ˜ͺ - A LESSON TO LEARN HERE

As a Hive onboarder, I spend most of my activities on Hive bringing people to hive, explaining things about Hive, mentoring people about hive and even checking out on some Hivers here through the Newbies Initiative. All these activities combined together with my personal life activities sometimes gets me too tired and busy to think of contents to create.

wepik-2022219-21225.png

I haven't created any content since the past two days, that's because I have been onboarding a lot of people to Hive; more of musicians and answering some questions on discord and WhatsApp most especially.

Today, I was so tired that I was on my bed for 11 hours and unable to stand up, or pick my phone to check out what was going on. Yeah it is because I had been sleeping for about 2 - 4 hours a day before today, so I think nature found its way on me.

I spent the remaining hours of the day after I had the strength to get up from bed to find songs to play for Hive Open Mic but I seriously didn't see a perfect one, while the remaining hours left, was spent on helping a friend of mine @chosenfingers shooting and editing his video for Hive Open Mic, another friend @oyeniran with his introductory post.

For me not to make today a waste without having any thought on what content to create, I decided to share my feelings and thoughts on the chain and how I have been doing and how things are for me. Truth is, most times, it gets frustrating and I get very worked up.

Talking about inspiration to create content, truth is I have many options but sometimes, I feel not motivated to. I know this is normal when stress is involved and I understand we are not so much in our high vibes always.

I feel like taking long breaks from hive without thinking of which content to make next but I haven't gotten to that stage on Hive yet maybe when I become a whale or a very strong orca, I would have the mind to do so but now, if I try do this, the SAPA (severe brokeness) comes knocking at my door; I live on Hive and moreover, I have a lot of responsibilities on the chain, I cannot just leave it down like that.

I am definitely sure you clicked on this post because of the topic I used here and waiting to know the reason why I am quitting hive. LOL, I have no intentions of doing such, I just don't have the best topic for this post and trying to show you guys how powerful your title contribute to bringing visibility to your post

My first intentions in writing this post was talking about the people I had brought into Hive the last seven days but I kept typing and typing and drifting away from the topic, so I think I would save that topic for another day.

Right now, if you are a newbie and you feel as if you want to quit hive due to some challenges or struggles you may be facing, Feel free to drop those reasons why in my comments section below. Then I can see how I may be able to help you out on that.

You should know, content creation is not easy. It gets really stressful most times. As one of my old Hive tutor always says: Not everyone is a blogger but everyone has something to offer - A 1000 Hive Power delegation if you guess correctly who this person is. You need to have less than 3000 HP to be eligible.

Hint: She's a co-founder of an initiative that helps newbies as well.

You're putting a lot of efforts coupled with the fact that sometimes in our efforts to remain creative, we totally lose out and go for days without creating anything. Take time, rest your brain and begin again.

I was shocked at my first glance at the topic of this post. But the truth needs to be said hive takes lots of time in persons life and if one isn't careful enough and try a keep a balance it could greatly affect one health, professional career and other goals due to its high time demanding in other to be strong and earn more on the platform.

You have really made great impacts in lives by introducing them to hive, and also through your great support, motivation, and encouragement. Which I also happen to be a victim of. I'm highly grateful and deeply appreciate you.

As one of my old Hive tutor always says: Not everyone is a blogger but everyone has something to offer - A 1000 Hive Power delegation if you guess correctly who this person is.

Regarding the above is would suggest @aliento or @tripode. I hope I'm correct 😊.

I knew it was a bait too, you did well showing us how titles can draw attention. But I hope we do use it well. Lol.

What you had was a burnout, or near to it. You could take a rest just shut everything, go out and refresh and when you regain fullness, come at it again. It happen to me often too. Well it has cost be some streaks but we keep going.

Your old hive tutor.. @josedicus comes to mind, but he is not old na.
He is still my guess tho.

Content creation is definitely tasking. It's even more tasking when you make deliberate efforts to make the quality better each time.

I hope I'm correct!

I thought you were quitting but I am glad it wasn't like that. I think the onboarding process is quite tough when it comes to blogging. It's much easier to sell them on things like the HBD savings or games.

Same happened to me being on steemit from day 1….so many disappointments about the split up!
I wanted to continue on Hive in the same way but realized I couldn’t do it. I felt burnt out from they β€žpoliticsβ€œ behind.
I try to get back since months but didn’t succeed yet writing myself but at least I make the effort to vote and curate interesting content to support!
Breaks from social media are much needed but don’t say that you ever Quit! No need to do so as you said!
You are much needed!!
You know how to work it here and your title shocks πŸ™„πŸ˜‰πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ‘»πŸ€‘ Little mean 😁 but you got me and now I finally follow as well

Taking a break to come back stronger is not at all a bad idea. That’s also what I told you! The fact it’s always LIFE first instead of HIVE is the lesson you need to put into practice.

Step away and take care of the body that is blogging here on the blockchain

And yes I know her very well, she is been around 4,3 years

Weldone Boss!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ What your did in this post title is what we call an Headline Hook in the marketing world. And you apply some psychological tactics to do this. Otherwise no one will click on your post talk less of reading it. It is the reason why I also branched to know watsup about such a topic. Kudos.. πŸ‘πŸ‘ as i see this has nothing to do about depression and more to do about having the desire, zeal, and passion to always put in more efforts.

On the other end, I have no idea of who that person is. But there is no harm in trying. So the person is @thekittygirl

First of all, I will say listen to your body. A lot of us ignore our bodies and have had consequences. Content creation is not an easy task. The brainstorming process itself is tasking.

It is very tasking to create contents, the concept of thinking and bringing the idea to fruition is long..The stress of typing and ensuring your work is beautiful too takes time...but all these stress no longer matter when people enjoy reading your works...

The stress of the Newbies Initiative is understandable, I had thought about it too, probably you need a little break but you would be missed

Yeah true, the thought about the after effect of taking a little break from hives keeps me away from doing it. not only would I be affected by also would it be onto for others as well.

Thanks for this wonderful comments.

And like you, I sometimes feel the pressure of being active. Especially now that I'm working full time with a toddler at home because he doesn't go to daycare or preschool. I don't always find the motivation to sit down at the computer and write something, or when I do my head ends up empty.

And like you I collect articles as drafts, I probably have over 30 waiting for their turn to be written or formatted or just have images put on them...

I want to make my suggestion to join the "game" I guess tripode was your tutor

lol @tripode was never my tutor, but was a newbie too under the initiative.. we became close and became partners. but truth is I got to really like her but she is no longer active. I hope she comes back when she is done.

How is your baby doing? I know how difficult it is being a mother. I think you should be more active in the Mothers community and ladies of Hive community so that your daily experience with your child can be used as a source of content.

Yeah, I try to make such content about the mom's life or baby's life when I have time... I have so many articles done till the middle and I try to finish them... It is hard to make something new because when I stay like 15 mins on the computer he comes and pulls me into the other room where are all the toys ..

I am definitely sure you clicked on this post because of the topic I used here and waiting to know the reason why I am quitting hive.

To be sincere, I clicked on it because of the topic, I was already feeling like i can't do without you lol, you are very important to the community.

I just don't have the best topic for this post and trying to show you guys how powerful your title contribute to bringing visibility to your post

Are you kidding me this is like the best topic, I have seen in the whole of the of the community, I have come across in all communities i have explored.

Right now, if you are a newbie and you feel as if you want to quit hive due to some challenges or struggles you may be facing, Feel free to drop those reasons why in my comments section below. Then I can see how I may be able to help you out on that.

The truth is i do have challenges, most times people don't get to vote my beautiful content, I don't even get followers, I know it is with time but i engage in posts a lot i think, I deserve all that engagement and follow. Once again your title was a bomb

wow excellent. I've been on Hive for 8 months now and have tried to leave several times. I get very discouraged because I can't advance properly, especially seeing new people who advance fast. I make a world of effort and I try not to look to the sides so that this does not disappoint me, but sometimes it happens to me because of my own progress. Today something terrible happened to me, maybe because I was in a hurry I published the same post 3 times and there is no way to delete it. I don't know if that will impose some kind of punishment on me, I don't know. But I'm taking a deep breath so I don't give up. People like you encourage us. Oh and @brittanjosie they are amazing people 🌸.
