Why Am I Still Here? Initiative

in #posh4 years ago (edited)

This bear market for Steemians has been like hell week for Navy Seals.
Hell week is specifically to break a person and make them quit.

What they found out was, in most cases, when one person quits, the entire unit quit. That is because quitting is contagious and when you're not fighting for something bigger than yourself it makes quitting an option.

Steem incentivises communications & gives the tools to buidl immutable communities, however, money alone is obviously not what kept a lot of you here.

What gives you the motivation to keep posting, curating, interacting with and or helping grow the Steem community, despite this 2-year bear market?

Are you ride or die for Steem, if so, why?

What made you keep going here on Steem? Please write a whole post sharing your story.

10 posts (shared on Twitter or other social media) will be rewarded with 100% upvotes. The 10 winning posts will be picked by me, @mindtrap & @acidyo - Even if your post isn't in the top 10, upvotes will be given in lesser amounts to active participants.


  • Share your Steem post to Twitter. Comment below with both your Twitter link & Steem post link.
  • Use the tag #SteemImpact in your Steem post & use the hashtag #STEEM in your tweet.
  • The title of your Steem post should be "Why I Am Still Here" & the main Steem tag or one of the first 5 tags should be #steemimpact
  • Use #POSH tag on Steem to receive @ocdb upvotes as well! @threespeak will be giving out upvotes for #threespeak videos based on this initiative!

Why am I still here -- an Existential quandry:

On Steemit

On Twitter


Nice! I'll share this with my community and see if we can contribute to the initiative. This is a big question ...Why are we still here. Looking forward to adding my two cents as well to it :)

Thanks for doing that, @jongolson - I've been here for less than two months so it's a bit early for me to say why I'm "still" here, LOL! I'm here because I like the idea, the potential and the community, especially the CTPTalk crowd. CTPTalk is my main focus, but I like the options we have to create completely unrelated stuff directly on Steem and get rewarded for it too.

Steem incentivises communities, however, money alone is obviously not what kept a lot of you here.

Well, I suspect Steem not necessarily incentivises 'communities' as such. But rather 'communications' no matter if these are big or small.

However the very important thing here on Steem, apparently is the fact to mingle with alike people who have at least a minimum of gray matter left in their brains where hopefully is swimming a blink of logic, reasoning, eloquence, coherence, common sense and eventually wisdom to pull and put all those previous ingredients together for a healthy & rational consumption.

Yeah! by fortune, the Steem blockchain already counts with a good bunch of those remarkable chefs. :)

Oh! forgot to tell. Yeah, let's see if later I can come up with something half 'coherent' to post which could qualify with the rules of this new initiative.


Great point, will edit that in.

Greetings @theycallmedan, i share my Entry:
