"Steem has so much more to offer than the current trending posts" ~ @pharesim
Lets examine the Steemit Trending Page for a moment.
It has it's good and bad points.
On the good side, it does entice new users to register for an account. Came for the promise of money and stayed for the community
On the not so good side, the same people ride that page day after day, month after month, with some of them spinning posts reworded from last weeks post.
There's many minnows who publish original work every day. Innovative and interesting posts. We write. And not to mention the creative process- thinking of the subject, weaving the words, etc- is truly hard work. Original content is what makes a site great. Originality is what makes a community grow.
There is a lot of really good content that never gets upvoted because everyone used their votes on those few trending authors.
Steemit has so much more to offer than the Trending page!
After you've been here for a while, you notice you're not heading for the trending page as fast as your imagination took you on your first days at Steemit. And you get frustrated. It's natural.
But you, Minnow, have a lot of power. You don't even realize it.
If you look at the top people on the Trending page, you will see they each have a thousand votes. Only a small percentage of those votes are from whales. That means that hundreds of minnows voted on that post. We got them to the trending page.
WE gave them those rewards for that post.
WE can rise each other, the same way we are rising the trending authors.
I know you feel like your $0.01 vote means nothing. But all those one cent votes paid that trending authors rent in one day...
Every time a minnow votes for another minnow, they take a little away from the trending authors. By voting on your fellow "smaller fish" you are helping each other grow.
Minnows supporting minnows builds the entire Steemit community and we rise together, faster!
Guys, we really have a a stellar amount of power.
With great power comes great rewards. Lets use our power to our mutual advantage.
