This is why I'm stepping down as the OneUp Cartel social media manager
The OneUp Cartel is doing awesome!
Everything that has been brewing and building in the @oneup-cartel is been amazing. The curation accounts are doing great and making sure that every delegator is receiving awesome curation rewards.
Gamers united in the very crowded Discord server and you can find some intel there every now and then too as people that hang out there are well connected. If you love gaming, and haven't managed your way to the discord yet, I'd say check it out. I believe that the cartel will grow exponentially in the near future and that soon the daily users in discord will explode. Luckily, they have divided everything into channels, so you can just jump right to the relevant channel and mute the other notifications if you like.
More games are added to the cartel operations list
I love how they have appointed a special operator to be in charge of the cartel's account in that game. This person writes weekly updates and so everyone can stay up to date. The art that's provided by the cartel is amazing! I love how everything matches so well and it's very recognizable for outsiders that this content belongs to the cartel. Did I mention that the art is amazing already? :)
So why did I put down my work then?
The biggest reason is simply because we decided to move to Spain within the next 2 months instead of the end of summer, as planned originally. And while I could manage things until recently, as nothing was set into motion yet officially, now that I have to actually take action on a lot of things, it also means I'm consuming so much information (often about things that I never had anything to do with, or yet have to learn about). This would not be such a problem if I had free time, but I don't. I have our daughter to take care of, the work for CineTV as a social media manager as well as building something with my Listnerds team. These are actually my main sources of income on Hive, and these are two things that I don't want to part with, I'm too passionate about both.
Gaming totally vanished to the background
Although I have Splinterlands cards, bought into ChiFi Bots, have LVL and THGaming tokes, I can't push myself to focus on these games at the moment. When you are dealing with real life tasks that have a deadline and need attention or otherwise things will collapse, you have to prioritize. So I had to let @flauwy know that I just can't keep up with the cartel currently. I hated to say that I was going to quit, but I worded it in a way that I already hoped we mutually agreed that it's best for both parties to put down the tasks. And thankfully, that's what happened.
I don't like quitting
While realizing that it was getting a bit overwhelming, I decided to see if I could make it easier on myself first. A week ago, I started creating a sheet with all games related to the cartel that I could use when needed. For myself, it was not an option to lay down the tasks while I just recently started. I had to have it up and running with awesome numbers to show first. That's just who I am.
Don't get me wrong, the engagement rates are GREAT and the followers have almost doubled since I started, it's just lack of daily activity from my side and giving it that extra special love, going the extra mile. I can't commit to that in the next few months, and I think by quitting, at least they can find someone that is very dedicated and maybe even more connected to all the games that are being shared. One thing that's for sure, you won't have to worry about having awesome graphics!
I almost published this post in EXHAUST, not because it fits there, but because I feel exhausted and it grabbed my attention when I browsed through the communities I could select. This made me laugh, and realize at least I can still see the funny side of it and probably tomorrow will be a better day if I just accept today I'm not operative at 100%.
I'm very grateful for the opportunity @flauwy has given me and I wish the cartel all the best, I'm still going to be curating for the cartel, but that will also be a little on the lower side for now. Less hunting for content but more rewarding the content that I was already reading. Once things have settled down, I can pick up speed again.
If you want to connect, you can give me a follow on my socials. For inquiries, you can send me a direct message on Discord.
