I'd only done a few memes with little feedback when I started commenting on the memes of popular users. Suddenly, I got several thousand points almost overnight. I was flabbergasted, and if you've ever had your flabber gasted, you'll understand. See attached meme. That meme alone doubled my points because so many people offered the same advice I offer today.. When I deleted that account in October, after only being active on it for about 6 months, I was on the threshold of 200K. I couldn't stay away, though, and returned in November. Since then, I've been on Page one several times (6 times last month, but who's counting" Been on the weekly leaderboard, and am in the top 50 of the top 100 users. Oh, and you see where I am as far as points go. I have a goal to hit 1,000,000 points by Labor Day. So far, I've made every goal I've set by being realistic and working towards it, including building that fan base I always talk about. Time to hit 500K? I was less than 3,000 points away. Easy day's work after posting two memes. They didn't feature, and while I had another week to hit that goal, I mentally moved it up. I posted my third meme of the day, and it garnered a lot, but still not enough. I busted my butt commenting on memes. Hot pages and Latest. Got to a few hundred short so I mentioned it to a friend in a comment. 15 minutes later, I had 500K+.
Sorry if that sounds like bragging, but I see you are heading that way. You don't post often, but I check profiles of anyone that hints that they work for their points. Well, I saw to it you got a few more. LOL.
Summer is here, so if you can take a break, look forward to seeing more of your work. If you need help, I'm always happy to help those willing to work.
