Always scrambling at the end of the month!
« on: August 29, 2017, 09:36:20 am »
I always find myself scrambling at the end of the month to get 30 posts! At the beginning of the month, I resolve to get my posts done early, but somehow I always have 10-20 more to do in the last few days of the month. It's even worse now that my work hours are changed, and I have a lot less time online.

You are not the only one that is scrambling at the end of the month.  I always start good and then fizzle out and then I am scrambling at the end of the month.

It is hard when your time is limited. I try to post at least once or twice a day.

I hate that feeling the most. I try not to rush posting at the last minute because I find that I tend to post poor quality rubbish. :-X Here I am at it again under pressure, and tomorrow is the deadline.  :sweat:

This is the reason I try to do all of my postings between the first and the third of each month. If I do not use this approach, I am bound to forget, and therefore miss out on the much-needed $3.00 forum bonus. Contrarily, I tend to scramble for money towards the end of the month in order to satisfy the $25.00 cash-out minimum. In fact, I experienced this towards the end of August. Thankfully, I barely made it and am waiting for my earnings by September 20th. I need to be more disciplined and have a better weekly earnings plan so I do not fall short towards the end of the month.

I've done that too, but i'm a bit confused when fusioncash says that I need to do it within a full calendar month. For example, if I started posting on august 2nd and i finished on september 3rd or 4th would that count as a full calendar month?

I usually finish within the first couple of days and send it  in also but try to continue during the month just in case.  I usually have about 40 to 50 post a month.

The full calendar month means you post a minimum of 30 posts between August 1st to the 31st, and then you submit 3 posts for the month of August in order to be paid for the forum bonus. September will be considered the next full calendar month, etc.

I try to do my posting at the beginning of the month so I can put in for the money early on.

I used to try and get all my posts done in the first half of the month by doing at least two a day. But then I started working full time and lacking motivation to always post. So I go on mini-rampages (like I did today, I think this might be my eighth post).

I usually get mine in at the beginning of the month unless I am away. I always do them when I just plain don't have anything else to do.

People who post every day have my admiration.  That makes so much sense.  Then you don't have to feel that urgency at the end of the month for getting all your posts completed.  So far I have not achieved that discipline. Over and over I tell myself that this month, I will come in and post at least once a day, but then I get in a hurry and do the essentials only. I do ENJOY posting more when I can come on my own schedule, but that doesn't always help get my 30 posts in a timely fashion.
