This is a post about a funny story, that I would definitely not believe if I did not witness it myself :)
Picture this: The founders of a social media platform, post a story about someone who found a way to break the rules for receiving extra rewards. He posted about it and of course the extra rewards stopped for all!
But the real story is not that per se :) After a few minutes - another user takes the story of the founders and posts it in the founders' social platform - as his original content! Read on to see what happened :)
How it all started :)
I was feeling a bit depressed this morning .. and I was online trying to find the courage to work :)
When suddenly I saw this post ... I mean .. WOW!
Short version .. there used to be some secret (un-announced) rules of extra 'activity rewards' on read.cash - that were distributed to specific countries. Some of the users from other countries accidentally discovered it, posted about it - until someone said that he was using a VPN! That post of course was the reason that these activity rewards were stopped without any notice!
That could be the whole story - it stands well by itself, doesn't it?
There is more :)
Where do YOU find your post inspiration?
Wrong answers only!
I guess you do not find your next blog inspiration from the platform's founder wall!
And even if you do, I guess you would not copy/paste it to another platform!
Well someone did just that. He copied and pasted the same post as their own article!
I was also left with my jaws open .. I mean, this person had already more than 200 followers and for some reason just decided to copy paste a post about cheating from the platforms founders?
Of course the founders reacted immediately. I don't think that he will be using his account to write another blog there
(I would really like to know what he was thinking when writing that post)
Anyways .. that was the story, I hope it made you smile!
Oh, the things that we will witness for sure can give inspiration to script writers :)
But let's move forward!
Every story should give us a lesson, so I decided to make this a useful post :)
I will share with you how I find inspiration/subjects for my blog posts :)
How to keep the inspiration coming ...
“If you are working on something that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.” – Steve Jobs
First of all, you need to loooove (or at least like) what you do. Write blogs :) Second, it really helps if you already know somethings about the subject of your blog.. I could never think or writing a post about neuroscience, it would take me for ages to find all the info and digest it enough to be able to write about it.
Here's what I do so that I always have something to write about & a few ideas of fellow leo-authors ;)
.1. Make a list
I always make a list of subjects that can be written at any point. These could include a milestone (i.e. when I reach 5K APX), a game/app/platform review, an opinion about something, a funny/educational event etc
.2. Check out the news
You may find something that will inspire a whole post or that can help you think of a relative subject :) For instance, the latest post of @trumpman is about RUNE and how it is about to take off!
.3. Read what other users write :)
Careful here! I am not suggesting that you write about another user, but someone else's post could give you a story to write about - or news about a project!
.3. Make a comparison
If you check out his post, you get to find & subscribe to many hive/leo users
.4. Make a prediction or state your opinion about something!
You may be interested a lot in a topic, monitoring it closely for some time. That will give you some extra insights that you may want to share.
.5. Write about a contest, a giveaway
A contest or a giveaway is always an interesting topic! Or you can write about a giveaway rewards!
See how @knowhow92 turned his 50$ rewards to $200!
What do you think?
Do the above inspire you? Do they bring some extra ideas for posting themes?
If none of the above is enough, check out the daily contests by @whatageek :)
Or announce any future announcement, but please do not go copying other people's posts :)
