I think I share the sentiment that you are everyone's favorite bread, and speaking of bread, I'm sure that's why most people came to Steemit in the first place. To literally get paid to use social media.
I also thought it sucked when my posts weren't doing well, but as you and many others have found, there is a lot more than Steemit can offer users other than some money and upvotes.
While I've written some blog posts and longer pieces on other sites in the past, I feel that only when I came to Steemit, that my writing actually improved. There's a lot of challenges in writing something that you want people in other countries to understand and relate to.
I also believe that writing for yourself is the best thing. At the end of the day, even if no one else will like what you wrote, at least you did! It's the freedom to write about controversial topics and to make friends from all over the world. Steemit is a platform encourages originality and trying crazy and new things.
I'm so glad to find that you were here when I got back to Steemit earlier this month. Lmao, It feels nice being here.
I love your frog painting c:
