I have seen a few people talking about leveling up
There are many users on the platform that have been here for a few months but have not leveled up yet. Some of those users have good content but they are leveling up slower than others who have been here for the same amount of time. Many are confused to why that is, and one of the things I have learned from other blockchain and even ad based social media sites that paid (yep the blockchain isn't doing anything new, here there were other internet based ad sites that paid in the early days of the internet till the sites stopped it, but it was pennies compared to the blockchain). Is first and foremost that quality over quantity is king.
The other things I have learned
Is that commenting relevant comments shows you have read the piece don't comment spam, if you comment a few words that are generic all the time it doesn't encourage engagement so you don't end up with the engagement it takes to level up your reputation. So take the time to read and comment relevant comments, if you can't think of anything to add to the conversation upsmoke and move on to another article where you can add value to the conversation. Nice post isn't a comment, it is comment spam.
Posting photos, it is important to post photos with your articles, but even more importantly they should be your own photos. If they are stock photos you need to credit the photo of where you got it, because you are making rewards on this site, and to do other wise is content theft don't be a content thief. If you still content and it doesn't matter if it is photos or words, you won't do well here because you will be found out. And Plagiarism is not cool in any form. And that brings me to Self Plagiarism, I am not talking about Ongoing contests. I am talking about people who are copying and pasting the same content across many platforms. If you copy and paste and you have been on the blockchain for a while, you know why you are still a 25 rep, because you are not putting effort in on the site. You care more about rewards than people. If you have done these things all is not lost.
You can do better
Post photos with your pieces, don't copy and paste your smoke content elsewhere. You will do better if it is a Smoke.io Exclusive. Comment on more articles than you create. Curate content and word count does matter. Try to make sure what ever you post photos or videos about to write at least 500 words about the photo or video you have posted. It will help you grow your rep. I been here 7 weeks now and I have leveled my rep up 8 times already. So if I can do it using these steps I have laid out anyone can.
