What If Your Reputation Score Has Plateaued?

in steemit •  9 months ago

For about a month now, my reputation score (36) has stayed the same. Usually, it inches forward one point after I do a batch of posts. 

So I've been combining posts, and commenting on threads I am fascinated with. It's not easy as this is one of the main things the platform struggles with: quality content. I know it's still eons away from getting to the quality of say: Vox, Salon, Fast Company, or even the weakest post in Geraldine Deruiter's blog.

One thought nagged me: 'Hey...you're posting to get...not give'. And there lies the key.

Though I am still fascinated with the workings of Steemit and how the reward system REALLY works (does it?), it would be quite futile to try to make sense of it all unless I find the right person to have a chat with (yes...on Wire) who could give me answers to the questions:

  • What do I need to keep a steady increase on my reputation score?
  • How many posts should I limit myself a day? (I know it's four --- but...I don't have the link handy to back that up)

I'm hoping there would be better way to find my kind of people compared to if I were using Reddit, Twitter, or Tumblr. Could my ambivalence chance towards Steemit if I found some of them here? I'd like to think so. 

Meanwhile as a strategy for moving forward, I'll just focus on generating content that I could see myself linking to. The growth of my Steemit reputation and Wallet stats should just be an afterthought. :)


Have you figured about the whole 'reputation' thing? I look forward to reading your views as a reply below or as a link  to your post (whether or not it is on Steemit)! If your not yet on Steemit, you can send me a tweet too! If you are the type that doesn't like letting the public see what's in your mind, you can send me a note here

For upvoting, I had heard from Steve Clark, that it is better to upvote posts that are less than 7 days old. So if you would like to be sure I get rewarded, head here  to see newer posts. Because you still can upvote anytime ---- of    course  you can upvote this post even if it is more than 7 days old!   :D  

After reading this post (specifically item one), I've decided to include links for verification so any of the witnesses can confirm that I am me! :) 
#1 - Here's a tweet linking to one of my Steemit posts #2 - Here's a page on my site with a Tweet from my handle embeded #3 - Here's my Thrive Feed (that links to my site, which links to my Twitter feed...which links to my Steemit feed...)

As for my other written pieces (outside of Steemit), some of them can be found on Thrive and Buzzfeed

@steemit Whew...only had to wait 3 days. :)

Still figuring out the platform...meanwhile...

Hello experiments!… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

Disclaimer: I am just a bot trying to be helpful.

Yes upvoting posts after 7 days is a waste of an upvote as the post has "expired" and cant receieve anymore rewards as it has already paid out.

Iv written a few articles on how to use steem you might have encouraged me to write one about how the reputation score works 😊
