Post 2, how do I gain viewers on Virily?

This my second post in my newest series “How do I gain viewers on Virily.”  I am going to focus today on some questions that have been asked of me related to improving your views on Virily.

  1. How do I become verified users?
    1. First Verified users are those who do not require moderation when they post. The original “requirements” to become a verified user had to do with both contribution (things you share on Virily) and commenting. If your comments were reported or you don’t follow the rules of the site they didn’t make you a verified user
    2. I do not know if this is, in fact, the case
  2. How long to moderate my posts?
    1. One of the things I remember from first started was that sometimes if I posted on  Friday, it might 5 or more days before my posts were published.
    2. Since I started out writing two times a day on Virily, I could be 10, 12 and sometimes more posts ahead of the moderators.
    3. They always published my stuff; it just took time!
  3. Should I join challenges?
    1. In deference to Albert, yes you should.eSome of the writers on Virily do not join the challenges, many do.
    2. But if you join Albert’s challenges, HE ALWAYs reads your additions to the challenge!

Please remember let me know via private messages if you need to vent or express frustration about the speed of moderation or other issues you may have! I am happy to listen! I may not be able to help, but I will listen and if I can help I will help!

If you wish to become a verified user of Virily, remember that with power comes responsibility. You, as a writer are a reason Virily is still in business. Based on that remember the reality of the other side when you post. The writing site Reddit always reminds us to remember the human. While the Virily editors could certainly do a better job of communicating with us, we can do a much better job of communicating with the admins as well.

  • Would you like to see Challenger Awards (who follows the most challenges)?

    • Yes
    • No
  • Would you like to see the Community Whisperer Award (someone that grows the community on Virily)

    • Yes
    • No
  • Would you like to see an influncer award? Someone that brings views to you!

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?

  1. Now I just want to show my face here after you put my name there for a few days. I admit that I have indeed joined all challenges since the end of last year. How sad it is to imagine a friend who thinks “Why did he join the challenge but not with the challenges I started?”, that’s the reason.

    As a fellow user, I really appreciate your willingness to receive vent from other users, especially new members.

    After reading all the comments, what are your conclusions?

  2. I am more a fan of “if it is making you happy then by all means do it” kind of person. Some young women I met in some groups I joined would usually ask how can they become successful in blogging. Poor girls think I am making a lot of money from it. And if I say I am only doing it for love, I get the kind of reaction that my brain translates as “duh” ?

  3. Very interesting post. I’m happy to read your post. I always get to know something new and interesting. I joined some of the challenges, but you see them a little late. But today I was pleasantly surprised, I have approved three posts ?
