Steemit is a community of diverse people.
When you act positively towards other steemians they will come to appreciate your effort and thus would like to return the favor. In Steem, it would mean, commenting, upvoting and interacting with them in here and on other Steemit related platforms and chats, the more you take part with whats going on the more you benefit.
Yes, we all learn from each other that way too. Cheers!
