It does seem to be the trend to request tips for yourself these days, but regardless...I am requesting a retroactive tip for content creation. This is somewhat of a litmus test to see what value the community brings to my content creation, reply guy tendencies, and ability to bring more visibility to the Polkadot ecosystem.
I have been creating content in the Polkadot eco for some time now with almost 3 years experience reading, researching, creating, writing, editing, and fostering new content creators. In the past, I was a member of The Kusamarian team and thoroughly enjoyed my work with Jay, Pnin, Monte, Blacklodge, and the rest of the squad. I had to step away for personal reasons and now create content based on free time, burning passions, and overal zeal for the Polkadot eco. I also have experience in fostering new content creators as they hone their craft previously through WagMedia, many of whom you may interact with on a day to day basis.
I recently put up a poll on X about applying for Polkdaot Head Ambassador, but I do NOT plan on applying for this. I believe there are other very deserving candidates out there, and it is simply not in the cards these days. Regardless, I will continue to create content and would appreciate a tip from the community if you all think it is reasonable. This is for my past individual threads and more recent work as noted below. As a side note, I've never used ads and grew my audience from 0
