RE: Top 8 Reasons Why Steem Will Succeed (Warning: Dark Humor)

in #steemit3 years ago (edited)

If only 1% of authors wrote like you we'd be competing with Pornhub already!


all I got out of reading this post was "spankwire", so at least I got something out of it......

.... just kidding, overall this was pretty darn funny, though it seems mentioning CNN over, well, virtually any other network may have better driven that point home! lol

If 50% gave 50% a chance instead of just commenting on what's popular, we'll be halfway there haha!

I totally agree with you. I just came to the platform, I got convinced after watching a compelling youtube video. I thought this could become my new "Quora"... So far, my first impression is that many comments are only a few words long and are posted on popular posts. Some people are trying to get rewards with a flood of comments and that is already annoying to me...

Oh, you haven't even seen the whole circlejerking thing that Steemit is notorious for. You're in for a treat! I'm very hopeful that things change for the better though. But, I just want to set expectations here. I've been here for more than a year, and I'm not doing any better than many people who just started here for a couple of months. It's not like I haven't been putting in the work, it's just that cliques aren't all that inclusive. There's a lot of politicking happening.

Crap, haha, Jed is literally one of my best friends on steemit, like family to me- in fact steemit friendships develop in dog years which is a pretty cool feature of this place that should have been mentioned in this post, lol, but let's say I am the Tigger to his Rabbit.

There are indeed some flaws in this place, but as I recently said in a post- if it was easy to get it to work seamlessly then there would already be a hundred competitors.

Jed if you read this comment, I challenge you to name ten people who are doing as well as you that have been here only a couple months let alone most people, (traf doesn't count, nor does anyone's alt accounts) sheesh you really are a Rabbit sometimes haha!

It's a social platform, so be social- thoughtful, useful, original, positive comments are key. The few word commenters on repeat are getting nowhere but ignored or even flagged. Find people you relate to and connect with and be consistent.
Popular posts with a ton of comments on's best to do what you just did here and connect with other commenters, likely the post author is already overwhelmed and the best you can expect is a response to your comment (and most times not even that until you gain some rep) that will probably not result in them visiting your post unless it's a magic moment and you struck a chord in them that resonates huge.

Hm, it's been a long while since I've done a tips for newbies post...haha, actually my one year anniversary is approaching, I'll likely do something along those lines as part of that celebration.

But in all seriousness, if you want to do well here you have to put in serious time and effort in the beginning, I did and it has resulted in -above all a group of invaluable, irreplaceable friends from all over the globe. If making lots of money is your primary goal, then you're a lot more likely to be disappointed, but if you want to meet interesting people from all over the world, if you love creating whatever it is you happen to create and consider the money as a bonus then you won't regret any of your time spent, I definitely don't, and actually you're more likely to attract that money to you.

Hope you give it a chance :)

(I love you Rab--err @jedau ;)

Thanks, man!

Awesome comments here haha!

It takes a special talent to write one simple line that simultaneously caused me to feel good vibrationswarm and fuzzies (from the well-deserved compliment) and have visions of naked people doing...stuff...

Or else how about making steem based cam site or pornhub clone? ;)

@acidyo asked and he shall receive:

Check out this new poster...with some sweet short one-liner, but don't even know how to self-vote, do a proper intro, or edit the profile to give readers a clue, and he even upvoted my upgoat..hehe, the best part.....the noobs upvoting and commenting don't even know they are being messed with...haha 😀😁😂

then go see the rest....'Cleaner, driving for a living' is smacky-wacky as shit! 😝
