Blurt And The Ownership Dream

in blurt •  3 months ago 

Here in the U.S. many dream of owning their own business. So much that it was incorporated into the whole American dream propaganda. The tale of the hard worker who built their business starting with nothing but hard work and an idea. It is due to this propaganda in fact that the U.S. sees so many immigrating here, including illegally.

For many decades now lawmakers here have clamped down on the reality of this happening, pushing laws and permits that make many businesses out of reach for those who don’t have a sizable amount of money to compete with the large corporations.

So What To Do?

There are many ways to view a system such as Blurt. I normally focus on the social side, because that will be the deciding factor on whether Blurt can reach a point of velocity through demand the price has nowhere to go but up.

In this piece however I wish to discuss the employee ownership structure that we see built into Blurt.

Stake is a form of employee ownership. Your amount of stake determining when contrasted to others stake your amount of ownership.

And make no mistake, it is a real ownership. You decide how many hours you put into this. You decide monetarily how much you invest in your business slice of Blurt. What you put in is owned by you.

Unlike the other chains, where ones ownership can quickly be nullified by someone with more ownership (stake), here no one can undo your investments, whether through direct investment, the other businesses (accounts) here that you invest in with your attention and vote (stake allocation).

When you see other businesses here you wish to see thrive, your allocation of the interest is in fact an investment in those other businesses around you here. You are supporting them. In a way, we can say that in one aspect we could view those other businesses (accounts) as our suppliers. We decide who we would see thrive here beside us. Who we believe offers quality and the best potential for the growth and health of the entire Blurt ecosphere we are running our businesses from.

Investment For The Future Often Entails Reinvestment On Top Of Investment.

Many businesses fail because they either don’t invest enough initially, or as is quite often the case, they fail to reinvest into their business to both maintain their current position as well as to see growth.

This failure to nurture ones business is a sure recipe for failure when one is running a business.

In healthy businesses, we often see not only an investment up front. We also see in many cases profits not taken at first, positions shored up that allow for expansion.

Here at Blurt, there is a unique structure that basically allows anyone with virtually no investment to begin their business.

Unfortunately, this may skew ones view into both holding their business here with little regard, but also into believing that because of the initial low barrier of entry, that their business here is of low quality. Something to extract as much as possible as quick as possible.

A shortsighted view once one understands business structures designed for success. Shortsighted as it denigrates both the Blurt system that makes all of this possible, as well as oneself, what one can build here.

They Continue To Make Business Ownership A Hurdle Most Can’t Cross.

I mentioned at the beginning of this piece how they are making it harder to almost impossible depending on the area for one to own a business. They are determined to make us all dependent on their good will to survive. As they have stripped us of a growing area of self sufficiency, they have also made both the cost of goods and their supply chains a hurdle for a growing amount of us too.

The burden is on each of us to exercise our will when we demand that we are allowed to own things too. That we are deserving of the food on our table, the health and well being of ourselves and loved ones.

Those in charge would see us all in chains, slaving away for the smallest of morsels while they stack a growing amount of the worlds resources.

We don’t have to accept this though. No we don’t.

Blurt offers a unique way for all of us who can see it to be a business owner. To conduct our businesses unimpeded by geographical boundaries. Unimpeded by larger business owners who can steal away our investments due to their larger ownership, as we see both in the physical world and our sister chains who allow larger stake to steal from smaller stake claims.

So understanding what is possible here, the freedom that each of us can build here atop Blurt with our own business seems like a no brainer. A no brainer that we can still build our future, build our business by investing in ourselves, our suppliers (fellow accounts) and the project foundation.

All it demands is understanding what is really going on here at Blurt. Understanding you deserve something lasting, something that has a residual effect that will pay you dividends for years for the investments you make today in yourself and the system.

Blurt is ownership. This is the way.

Lyrics to My Way

And now the end is here
And so I face that final curtain
My friend I'll make it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more
I did it, I did it my way

Regrets, I've had a few
But then again too few to mention
I did what I had to do
I saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And more, much, much more
I did it, I did it my way

Yes, there were times I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
But through it all, when there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried
I've had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find it all so amusing
To think I did all that
And may I say, not in a shy way
Oh, no, oh, no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

To Say The Things YOU Truly Feel, And Not The Words Of One Who Kneels. This is the way, this is Blurt.

Precisely the kind of personal insights we need to see more of on Blurt :-)

Many company failed because they had not good enough future plan, or future plan was not that much good for the company. Blurt is in good position and doing good for the future, going to cosmos is the main focus now. If blurt does that perfectly, price will be high. You explained there very well about all things, good day @practicalthought.

I am fascinated by Blurt's current progress and projects. They have advanced plans. I hope the blurt will do much better in the future. I’ve been working at blurt for about a year.
But I noticed a problem. Many users post quality and authentic but get less support. On the contrary, there are some users who post using a picture but there is no article in the post. But it gets more support. What is it for ???

Many users post quality and authentic but get less support.

So often many are unsure of how to find a place of great success at a social blockchain. I found success rather quickly when I joined Steem years ago. My secret was understanding most who might be interested in what I was, and what I was blogging about had no idea I existed. I saw this quickly once i began posting and no one was commenting or voting.

So I began focusing on those who interested me, and initiating real conversation about what they were writing about. Not the common "great post" low effort comment one typically sees. Real comments that at times could have been a post themself. I also initiated dialogue on other commenters on those posts. Taking initial prompts such as a post or comment and turning it into a conversation is really what social blockchain is about, and the key to success.

On the contrary, there are some users who post using a picture but there is no article in the post. But it gets more support. What is it for ???

Unfortunately (in my opinion) there is a curation support project that is promoting the posts that you see. In the western world self centered behavior that often devolves into narcissism is prevalent. Sexuality is now pushed as empowerment and has become main stream.

I recognize however that social blockchain involves freedom, and those who are creating these low effort selfies and those who wish more of this so they upvote it are free to cultivate and grow what they wish here. That is the real draw of Blurt. Each of us can choose what to post and vote what we wish to see more of.

I can assure you however not all are supportive of those type of posts, and our attention and support goes to more interesting posts that have energy and is not so self centered. Those of us who want more than that are cultivating a different garden and are appreciative of those who want to share more than that here.

I choose to look at it as the burden for seeing more of what we want rests with each of us. Those who post what doesn't interest me are causing me no direct harm, and perhaps there are enough interested in what they create that it will bring more people here. And perhaps some of those people will also appreciate the things I find interesting as well.

We can all help one another even when it isn't directly. Blurt is large enough to encompass all dreams without it causing friction or harshness between us. The chain I left (Hive) allows those with large stake to downvote (steal reward) from those whose posts are not desired. The true genius of Blurt is that isn't allowed. Just because I find certain posts unpalatable, I can't decide I want to chase them off and begin stealing from their business model. The market decides if they succeed or fail, not anyone else with an axe to grind. I don't support the selfies financially, but I support their right to be here, and the right of those who have ownership in stake to allocate their rewards to them. It's true freedom, and we are all leaving our mark in who and what we support.

  1. I think, all short comments are spam. Like wow, nice, beautiful, good, wonderful etc. I usually try to make important and good comments according to the post, so that my conversation with the poster grows and a good friendship is formed. In this we can support each other on any issue or posts.
  2. I saw some curation IDs in the first place, they used to curate in good posts like blurtlife, blurtchef, blurtmusic etc. But they are dead now. I think if new users get less or less support, their interest in work may decrease or they may become reluctant. blurt is a beautiful and good website, here I am working with a lot of interest and I am very happy with their support.

Many of the curation projects were funded by the foundation. They pulled most of it because they weren't seeing many signs of it increasing any engagement and folks were mostly using the tags as a means to extract with putting in little effort.

This way is best without their projects. It will allow for us to decide what we wish to grow here (other than the insta project). If people wish to see more of something, this helps encourage both investment and energy to produce and curate. I love the curation projects we have, but it saddens me how many posts the only comments are from those projects. Even sadder that most of those comments are not even upvoted by the recipient. They can't even be bothered to support one of the few branches of support they get.

The burden is on us to support these projects. :)

I have also seen many good projects in blurt, which have strengthened the morale of the users. Inspired them to be more strongly involved in the blurt.
Can you tell me when to use the instablurt tag in my post?

I'm not the right person to ask about the instablurt tag. I bypass it unless it has been attached to an introduction post, and I may stop looking at those as well.

I would suggest researching it yourself. See what is getting posted there, and what is getting the most rewards for such posting. I suspect that those who are more attractive and perhaps reveal more of themselves are the more highly rewarded as an average.

Thank you so much for explaining, and explaining the matter to me in a beautiful way. I thought about it, and I got the idea. Sister Angelica7 also helped me about this. I am happy from the heart, with the reward of blurt. That's a lot.

Exactly! I recall my first 2 months on Steem I earnt far more from comments than posts - that built up an audience that appreciated the posts - the trick then is NOT to stop commenting ;-)

It's amazingly simple, once one acknowledges the social part. To many wish to be royalty I think and hold court surrounding themselves. Part of the narcissism culture training I think.

I earnt far more from comments than posts

I've experienced that myself. Once folks realize that we can have fun here and learn from one another then it will all unfold naturally. I usually prefer alone time in real life because peoples need to be social can be tiresome due to the dull topics folks will reach for to force the interaction. Once people begin seeing one another here hopefully that need will transfer over. Got to get that crypto focus dimmed so they can see each other I think. :)

In the long-term, the way to change behaviour is to change the system algorithms. It is a system issue to turn FINsoc into finSOC ;-)
It can be done - and I hope will be done if and when we have the coders.
In the meantime, it is up to humans to guide the flow of coins - you see, even that simple statement somehow buts the FIN before the soc!
If it wasn't a hard problem, it would have been solved ages ago.

You are right. I also comment and like to comment. But of course I will continue to post on my blog. My comments are relevant and sweet. As a result, I have a good relationship with the poster. I also started working on steem a few months ago, in recent times. Nice to read your comment

You have describe the furure and the opportunity of blurt nicely. Basically i have seen a lot of lackings of blurt at early time. I have criticised them a lot. But they are doing well now. So i have been motivated to stay here. Now it seema that bkurt is a potential project.

Excellent Post.

Yes, Blurt offers the best way for people everywhere in the world to make a living through blogging. There is nothing like it anywhere. You hit the nail on the head.

Especially this …

Unlike the other chains, where one’s ownership can quickly be nullified by someone with more ownership (stake), here no one can undo your investments, whether through direct investment, the other businesses (accounts) here that you invest in with your attention and vote (stake allocation).

On Blurt anyone can succeed…. Powering up you Blurt and earning through Curation is also better than anywhere else.

Blurt is one of the few pure ownership models available that one can grow mostly unfettered by the interference of others. I believe that we need to see this for the social side, and that for those who have viewed this from a purely business perspective they should expand their view if needed and understand the true business opportunity here.

The return on investment, while not guaranteed as with any business, is closer than most any other venture one could enter. Rewarding collaboration among business owners (accounts) here that can see it, that helping the other business owners is helping oneself.

A true compliment that works in harmony with the social structure. The foundation was smart to understand the impediment the theft issue was. Now we can all reap benefits from what we are willing to invest in our businesses.

Many businesses fail because they either don’t invest enough initially, or as is quite often the case, they fail to reinvest into their business to both maintain their current position as well as to see growth.

I fully share with you the concept of being social, the best content and the one that should be valued is the one that can provide a plus for the platform, not by this I mean that we should talk about banalities, but Blurt is more than just posting stupid pictures, make shit posting, it can be used to publish new scientific discoveries, share advances of new publications, webcast and endless things that would give it more vividness. Where I consider that all this is distorted in that there is no longer a deeper development, variety to offer to new users. Of this we are much the problem, I include myself when we are not able to offer DAPPS, NFT, Communities (not the tags that we use to publish), I speak of specialized communities that are not separated by regions such as German, Spanish or English, but by common interests. Blurt is a great platform because here freedom of expression has been respected and great relationships have been built that can go beyond this 2.0 platform. Some say that I am very critical or exaggerated, but it is enough to see that there are those who can have a lot, millions of the Blurt token but it is not worth anything in the market or at least not enough to say that you have had an interesting return of money. Just as it is notorious that many functionalities have been lost and now we are more like traditional blogs than innovative or competitive blockchains. If we want a better platform we should recognize what we don't have and focus on developing more innovative dapps.
