Pinging these friends and wonderful artists.

avatar

Hello here again.
I needed some short (around 8 days) pause from any kind of social media - from Hive to IG and FB. I can describe this need like an overdose. Overdose of the daily race of being continuous, and at the same time to stay fresh and interesting.


Overdose_2021_by_Victor_Bezrukov.jpg

The piece of the Street Art I found in Jerusalem.


I stayed active only on my Twitter account, but Twitter is already became something different from any other Net place in terms of quality of conversations and discussions.
Somehow Hive and Steemit before the Hive was created, are losing the first place they could take (especially the Hive blog) due to exactly one reason - our post became not interesting for clicking on them for reading/browsing/looking-on-images after 2-3 days. Actually, I see very low activity even after 24 hours of the newly published post existing. I don't want to talk about an interest to see them after the week after the publication. After one week our posts are dead materials available in the Google search but not interesting anymore to other friends of the Hive community.


Distorted_traffic_2021_by_Victor_Bezrukov.jpg


Now, during this pause of 8 days the traffic (notification) to my posts almost completely dropped to zero. That is absolutely different on IG where after two months of pause I still have nice traffic to my "old" posts include comments.


Today I would like to "ping" here these wonderful Artists with whom we actively communicated some long and short time ago. These active people don't stop on the only "vote" but also love to write some comment or feedback about the published work.

To some degree. We're familiar with each other's work a bit and have traded comments a little. It does seem a bit random when they're on here though.

You are one of the most straightforward speakers on things that matter, Victor. I was fascinated by you the moment I met you. I was trying to figure out if it was the film and mono that you continuously work with, when the world was still in color or that you walk straight into the turmoil. The grit and truth come easy to you.

Life has been too busy with COVID/working healthcare and it is just getting to where one can breathe. I have missed the leisure of walking through blogs and commenting, but, now that the platform is dying, I will have a little more time, soon. I hope.

I can honestly say that I do go back on old posts and although I cannot vote on them, if it pulls me towards it, I will comment. Most people don't, you are right, but, if it is good today, it is good in two weeks. Perhaps I need to go back and visit IG as I have belonged there forever, but, long ago it irritated me that it was a drop of a picture and off people ran. So, I left it and never looked back. Things change, and everyone needs a side shuffle. :))

Anyway, I want to thank you for the mention and I will find you and your work, wherever you go.

you're wonderful Denise as your beautiful words. happy to hear from you.
I just found so many interesting posts here of different people for the different themes, most of those are even hardly voted but empty of feedbacks and conversations. These automatic votes just killing the platform.
I have many real-life friends on IG and FB and just can't drop both. On another side, I find all the real social life activities with the help of both. So, somehow they help me to be updated with our ongoing protests, music events, and all that is happening around.
Hope that you're doing well.

Overdose of the daily race of being continuous,

hey, you've found again the right words for what I am experiencing myself, I silently made a weekly posting pause here, on hive. you know, I am not a lazy bee, and this pause was not a lazyness... it was something, and you explained and described to myself, what it was. nice! 🧐

hey glad to hear from you.
I had some more spicy words about the principle of this money-making place, but I will refrain and will stay calm. The weekend is here, so better to walk with a camera, than to be stuck here. Will go to Jerusalem soon as usual.

Hi Victor! Thanks for tagging my work.
Some of the people I most enjoy following here at Hive are on your list: @ela.muds, @barbarabezina, @jpgaspar, @jayparagat, @angel35mm and others....
And I also really enjoyed discovering new interesting accounts to follow.

You are right that the activity on the posts only happens in the first 24 hours (and sometimes not even that). This bothers me a lot too...

It seems that the concern with quality content is not really a premise here, since if it doesn't do well in the first few hours, it will hardly happen. In the end, it seems that Hive also wants from its users the same instantaneity as other networks...
Fingers scrolling on the screens always looking for the newest thing on the feed.

thank you for taking a look and for the kind words.
the purpose of this post was kinda bonding with the great Artists who always act in their posts and in the posts of others. well, some of the more some less.
i just browsed my notification area "reply" section and found all these names already familiar to me and loved by me :-)

i just commented above that some two years ago on Steemit I used #mydailyinspiration tag for my daily post with the manually taken with "tweezers" the most interesting works of photography artists here. it was too difficult to work :-) I just stopped after a month or 2.
good luck to you if you will do some :-)

What an interesting analysis you have done, it really invites you to reflect and I thank you for that. Thank you very much for mentioning me and valuing my photographs that I share from my most humble position, it is really a compliment for me. Thank you very much, also, for creating this space for this art in full resurgence such as analog photography, I really feel that it has put me in contact with great artists and it is a pleasure!

btw. somehow Ecency don't show properly all the images of this page, but Peakd grabs the images very well. It's very confusing, cos my point was to show the images of the Artists not the links to their works. :-(

Very interesting publication :)) You can think and say many things about these topics. It is true what you say and it is not very attractive the fact that if you do not publish every day on Hive the blog dies but it is true and it does not happen on other social networks or platforms. I have to say that Hive is the quietest place I can find and take the time to post, I always say it's like a conversation with myself writing here I am more than grateful to this social network and I think it is incredible!
Twitter is crazy but it is the social network that I use the most and it is because of crypto art (nfts), where artists and collectors gather. I take this opportunity again to tell you to join the world of the nft, they are also there @silviamaria and @jpegaspar. I'm delighted to help you with everything you need if you decide to enter. There is a lot of movement so it would be great if Hive photographers join in on this.

I feel that in hive time is broader, there is not as much interactivity as twitter. I feel like I'm still discovering the hive platform. I thank Silvimaria for showing me this new world. It was through the nfts that I met the hive. I work at Hicetnunc with nft photos. I find it interesting to be able to sell photos and provide editing numbers about your series. if you need help you can call here too, if you want to enter hicetnunc. There are several other platforms with photography, but for me, being Brazilian, the fees costs are very expensive. hicetnunc democratized this a bit in the nfts world.

thank you for the recommendation.
I saw that also on Twitter there is a new genre - NFT photographers.
all their stuff is blurred, multi-exposure in the natural or Photoshopped way.
I'm too far from this. I can say that I never saw someone who is publishing the regular photographic stuff as NFT, more than this is against the Agenda of the digital Art that is very popular at this kind of sites.
