I live naked and barefooted, very close to Earth and Nature, in an 18-acre, off-grid, clothing-optional, food-forest intentional community (GaiaYoga Gardens), way out in the jungles of Lower Puna, far East Big Island, Hawai'i, and I have for more than 5 years now. Although there are many challenges, I love my life, and I'm immensely grateful to live where and how I do, on my own terms! I would not want to live any other way! 😁🙏💚⚡💥🔥✴️✳️❇️👣🌱✨🤙

Warm greetings all! 😁🙏💚✨🤙

I feel like I'm a collector of Hive growth strategies, as I've come across and learned quite a lot of very useful tips in my almost 3 years on the Blockchain. Individually they may not offer dramatic gains, but when used together in a synergistic fashion, I definitely notice the boost, especially over time, as innumerable mini-boosts add up. There are countless small and simple things that we can do every day to boost our growth on the Blockchain in one manner or another.

Since I'm always exploring, researching, experimenting, tinkering, and refining what I do on Hive every day, I tend to find a lot of very useful information on various ways to make use of our assets more efficiently and to fuel growth. I often share such growth-strategy tips in these posts, and in my Sunday Weekly Hive Goals and Progress Updates. Since I want people on Hive to thrive, I'm always happy to share what I've learned.

Given how beneficial and useful many of these growth-strategy tips are, I'm thinking that perhaps creating a more-thorough catalog or list of them might be a good idea, as a way to add in what I've learned to a greater pool of experience from people all over the Hive community. @zakludick, weren't you working on something like that? I know that @borniet has been keeping track of many that he's learned a well. Perhaps we could make such a growth-strategies tip guide for the Busy Bees?

As new growth insights are learned, I change what I do to implement or take advantage of them. My most-recent modification was to start using the swap feature connected to diesel/liquidity pools when I want to buy certain tokens like DRIP. For multiple days now, just before I buy a bit more DRIP from its daily SWAP.HIVE payout, I check how much DRIP I'd be able to get if I bought it on the Hive-Engine market, compared to acquiring it instead using its diesel/liquidity pool swap feature. So far using the liquidity-pool swap has given me more DRIP every time, even with a 0.25% fee. Interestingly, I did the same comparison for selling tokens as well, and in that case, selling on the maket offered better prices. If I had used the swap feature to buy my giant chunk of DRIP two weeks ago, I likely would have received quite a bit more tokens than I did by buying them on the market. Oh hindsight!

Yesterday, Monday, I left the Flow House, after finishing my Hive tasks, just after 1PM. My first task was to make Iolanthe some food, as she had texted me earlier asking me if I could. Once Io's food was made, I hung out with her for a short while playing a drawing game. After I left Tutu's, I headed to the Landing to strain out and blend kefir (kefir-honey-cinnamon-cacao). I also did my best to take more photos for these posts, in those moments when the sun came out to play. My main land work of the day was helping Ano unload his truck after the Sunday market, and to help do a last spot cleaning of the Manta Ray, a newly restored parking and storage area. After helping Ano, I took a shower, caught a few more photos in the early-evening light, then I collected my jar of leftover superfood fire coffee from the Landing fridge, and headed back to the Flow House, for my evening round of Hive tasks, and catching up on my notifications. I had to pause part way through to go down to Tutu's to make good for Iolanthe, and hang out with her for another short bit drawing. After dropping Io off at Braja's place (Braja is her grandmother), I made my way back to the Flow House to continue with Hive. I got everything done on Hive by just after 11PM, and after a scan of my X feed, I went to bed around 12AM. I woke up just after 8AM, after having slept fairly well, doing a round of token management, beginning on this post, and then getting out of bed to go make my superfood fire coffee.

It's now just before 12:45PM, so a marvelous time to end this post, so that I can get to a few important Hive tasks, before leaving the Flow House later in the afternoon, to first do a short round of body work on Ano's shoulder (at his request), then to strain out and blend kefir, maybe take more photos for these posts, and then land work. I deeply appreciate y'all so very much! Until the next iteration of this post tomorrow! Always forward, onward, upward, and whaleward, ho, together we go! 😁 🙏💚✨🤙

2024 Life Goals

1.) Heal my broken heart, reignite my heart sun, and embody a solid, healthy masculine, allowing my electric fire to shine bright, no matter what others, especially women, say or do. 

2.) Bring myself and my life back into balance, integration, and wholeness. 

3.) Do regular (naked) integral practices again, alone or with others. 

4.) Dance regularly again.

5.) Work with natural entheogens (mushrooms, ganja, ayahuasca), with punctuated regularity, as a part of my healing process again. 

 6.) Get, and keep, regular deep, integral energy-body-tantric work healing sessions for women flowing again.

7.) Prepare regular batches of my medicinal teas collected from the land again. 

8.) Make my plant nursery beautiful again.

9.) Live as an integral part of a juicy heart-resonant soul tribe community, with deep, coherent mutual and shared passion, purpose, mission, love, warmth care, sweetness, reverence, respect, aliveness, admiration, excitement, enjoyment, playfulness, work, fun, laughter, attraction, and all-level connections and relationships. 

10.) Make love with the woman, or the women, that I love, every day, as a sacred devotional practice. 

11.) Begin learning relevant coding/programming languages to more fully contribute to the sovereignty-driven technologies where I am active, like Arch Linux, Hive, Qortal, DeSo, and Bastyon.

Indeed. I have made many Guides for newbies. Sometimes I put them into a "Guide of Guides".

It seems, however, that once I have written them for the current class of newbies, that leaving links to ones written a year ago help people less than something I just wrote.

Maybe because the newer me is a better teacher, maybe people don't like reading.

Writing something now and explaining it to them and saying, "this post I just wrote will give you more information" seems to help.

But I like Hive Libraries... so I am keen on leaving great bits of advice in places where they can link back to it. The idea is to revise those guides as Hive evolves.

That's great, and I figured that you had. I've made a few guides/tutorials as well, as I'm fairly good at explaining to people how to do various things.

Many people do seem to prefer 'fresher' information. It could be part of an ongoing series of posts, focused specifically on useful tips and growth strategies.

Continually refreshing and updating the information is important, that's why doing it in the form of a wiki, like Propolis Wiki, would perhaps be useful. 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Cool. I shall check that out! Thank you.

!LUV

Yeah, Propolis has some good potential! You're most welcome, of course! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

How does one post or add to it?

At the moment, while it's still in development, you need to request edit access via their Discord server. I have edit access, but I haven't used it yet. 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Sweet. I shall... investigate and contact!

Excellent! The link to their Discord server is on the site. 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Sounds like a good plan indeed, consolidating our combined wisdom! I currently keep track of things just by saving the snippets, I haven’t really written anything on it yet, but it sure is a good idea to start doing that! Especially on a centralized place, and we can all keep it up-to-date and link to it. Great idea!!!
