When I first joined Steemit, I saw it as an opportunity for people to discover their talents. When I use Facebook there are times I want to share a project or a story but in order to do so I have to branch out to other social media sites, such as Instagram & Pinterest because it's too much for one "status update." If people realized that Steemit is more than a Medium.com or a Facebook, but the potential to be a complete online persona of who we are as individuals, we could really attract the masses.
This is my dream for Steemit and I don't believe there are any rules set in stone on what we can and can't post other then citing sources as necessary and I don't believe a post having value is subjective to writing a chronicle. I hope Steemit will continue to expand individual profiles and eventually we can tailor them to our liking. I will keep using Steemit under this belief and I am going to keep trying to get my friends to join this platform and push them to share whatever makes them happy, be it YouTube videos or cat memes.

Hopefully they won't be convinced they have to post 5 star posts consistently in order to appease the whale gods. I encourage everyone to vote for whatever makes them smile and not to judge or harass others based on what was voted on that day.
I believe a lot of people have potential in this world and if we could encourage them to just come hang out and stay awhile by harnessing a nurturing environment, we could open their eyes and even discover some real talent along the way.
Until next time.
