Why I moved To Weku

in blog •  6 months ago

I have been using Steemit for a year just about, I was happy with Steemit at first, then my joy slowly withered as time went by.
I thought I explain why I moved from here to Weku ( I still post on here)
If only I found Weku sooner.

Now let's get onto why I came here from Steemit

  1. low earnings, when I first joined Steemit, I was getting a bit more, like sometimes I got 3 Steemit dollars, sometimes 80 cents. But my SBD and SP were building quickly. After a while, my earnings started to drop. The people who had enough Sp to give me rewards stopped seeing my posts, I don't know what happened to them. My SP was too weak to give myself anything. And I joined Steemit due to unemployment, being unable to find work. Then back in March, Steemit stopped paying users for posts lower than 3 cents. My 2 cent post would jump to zero around the payout time and I was mad, searching for answers. Thinking Steemit was taking my money. I had to use a service to up vote my low earning posts. I concluded that it will take forever to save up any money off of 3-4 cents a post.

  2. Was a victim of downvote abuse
    Around July, I was a victim of downvote abuse. A user was downvoting my posts on several accounts of said person. I did nothing wrong and people were downvoting my posts. I wanted to leave Steemit, but because it was my only money source, I had to stay. If people cannot leave a comment as to what you're doing wrong, then they are wasting their time flagging you. Abuse report account downvoted my post, and nothing was wrong with the post they flagged, nothing! A user with the name Bernie Sanders flagged an innocent post and I lost my earnings because of his VP. People were coming at me just for using Steemit. As far as I know, nothing was done about that.

  3. No one was seeing my posts on Steemit
    When ever I posted my YouTube videos, I posted them in blog form to Steemit. And no one would upvote it(or like 2 people) and my Sp was too weak to give myself anything, so I felt like I spend 15+ minutes writing out a post for no one to see it. Maybe by my posts getting so many false flags, maybe it pushed my post down further on the page, like on Reddit.

  4. I wanted a backup plan. For the past few days, I couldn't do anything on Steemit due to no RC. I didn't wanna just rely on Steemit in case something goes down.
    These are all the reasons I can think of. I am hoping that trading your Weku credits for bitcoin happens soon, I would love for this to be a part time job.

I don't speak your language, had to translate with one simple click. But it was disheartning puring my heart into my content for it to not earn anything. And my Sp is too weak to help myself.
