It is interesting how a random comment / reply, or even some thoughts someone shared with the rest of the community through their blog, can inspire one to create a new post sometimes. It happens to me really often. And in most cases right when I feel like I have decided that taking a day off of the platform wouldn't be much of a deal.
In this particular case what triggered me to write these lines was a post by @Acidyo who decided to ask the community members how much they have earned the past 30 days. That means author and curation rewards plus possible earnings from SE or Splinterlands...or whatever and then cross-post the results on Reddit, Quora etc.
Trust me he is a smart guy and what he wants to highlight is that there is a good chance to earn something if you show up here and by no means to spread the wrong message or imply that one can be rich and such.
Since I have literally no idea where my earnings stand regarding my SE holdings, I've decided to check my progress using Steemworld.org which provides a pretty clear picture of one's progress regarding their author / curation rewards.
And this picture just says it all...
So...STEEM wise, as an author, I've earned 473 SP as and 310 "liquid" tokens aka 783 in total.
And as a curator, I've earned another 440 SP which I think is an amazing number. I was stunned by this number to be honest with you all. I often forget that through really hard work and persistence and of course my fair share of buying my account has almost reached 28K SP. That's the benefits one can enjoy as they keep growing their accounts.
And this can't be achieved unless you show up every day. Every single day.
Actually I think both these numbers are amazing. Don't get me wrong here...I am nowhere near the top earners both as an author nor as a curator, yeat I am super grateful for every single vote that lands on my posts regardless of its size and value. And obviously I don't belong there. There are some naturals out there who deserve every penny they have earned and their writings / vlogs will benefit us all...
How? Through the #posh initiative of course. Think about it...
When an outsider, scrolls down their Twitter feed page, or their FB page and from a random resteem / share, end up reading a top post initially uploaded on Steem blockchain what do you think they'll do next?
I'll tell you what they'll do. They'll start digging to see what Steem is, and to see with their very own eyes how is it possible for people to earn $$$ just by sharing their content on some "unknown" platform...
And just like that they'll decide to give it a shot...Which reminds me that this is the way I ended up being here as well.
Sharing your content on other social media platforms is way more important that you think it is.
It is the proof that there is an alternative to those shitty centralized options that people are used to.
It doesn't matter if you like to write about politics or sports or philosophy or Steem...just share it.
Have a great one peeps.
