One would tend to think creating original, top quality blogs would be your quickest way to make "pay dirt." Well, unless you are a member of a great Telegram group that has rules set in place where everyone must vote for each other then the odds are that most of your high quality stuff is going to go unnoticed.
If you don't believe me, then simply have a look at the dust bin of Scorum's history and see all the incredible blogs that went un-voted or barely voted. On the other end of the spectrum, have a look a the complete trash with poor content that has 100's of $'s associated with it.(not all, but some) The proof is there. After all, this is a blockchain.
In my experience, the easiest way to make money is to piggy back on the top performers. One's like @Mikey. This young man works his @$$ off creating amazing blogs. I pretty much have started stalking his work and voting early on his content. One click, and the cash roles in. I make more by commenting on one of his blogs then I do writing my own blog. Sad but true.
At the "end of the day" although lazy, I can sleep well with a clear conscious. There are plenty of nefarious ways to game the system and cheat. "Stalking" is NOT one of them.
So, I say, "KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK @MIKEY."
