@MissMiami thanks for your comment. I think you nailed it here. I’m kind of a passionate person that tends to put the heart in everything I do. My job is a vocational artistic stuff, I see it as a way of life, not only a source of income. Hosting is not that vocational though, but I guess I’m not trained in being emotionally detached from “job” as other people may be. Anyway, I see hosting as an opportunity to work on this aspect. I am convinced that hosts able to maintain a SH status for a long time without burning out must be very good at balancing the quality of the experience they offer and their experience as hosts, be it emotionally or rationally, particularly if they are co-housing. The fact I have my studio at home sometimes makes things weird with guests. They come and go in a space that is private / intimate in many levels. I seek to be surrounded by a nice atmosphere all around, and I love receiving guests with wide smiles and sparkling eyes that carry a great excitement for discovering Andalusian’s culture. I love to tell them about the secret spots off the tracks and the hidden gems the guides don’t show. But since the SH filter was set, I’m getting many difficult, noisy, inconsiderate guests that behave as poorly as they review. So I’m learning to put myself into a “shell” when they come, and focus on my things, treating them politely but not investing the same than with other people at all. In these cases minimum interaction proved to be better: luckily they won’t even bother to leave a review. If I put effort, however… this kind of people judge me poorly! I’d like to be more picky with guests as @metavirus suggests but for the moment, as I’m not in the core of the city nor extremely cheap, I don’t get so many bookings.
