Steemit is a site that is all about community!

Community

 It's all about creating a group of people wanting to post great content. It really has to work as a community. It's not an individualistic place where you are out to find monetary gains you must really be looking to contribute great content and also read great content for the sake of the site.   I recently read the steem_whitepaper.pdf  because I was growing frustrated with peoples interpretation of what Steem actually stood for and what the goal of the project was. I am a writer and economist who stumbled across Steemit simply by browsing around the internet. I was looking for information about digital currencies and what I found was so much more than simply information. I found an idea of a sharing community that powers itself and challenges its members to write and share. I think it's an amazing thing!  


"Steem aims to support social media and online communities by returning much of its value to the people who provide valuable contributions by rewarding them with cryptocurrency, and through this process create a currency that is able to reach a broad market, including people who have yet to participate in any cryptocurrency economy."     steem_whitepaper.pdf

 The system built on trust

I have read various posts regarding all of the ways that the Steemit community is not fair. I tend to disagree with some of these ideas.  It's not about trying to game the system and it's not in your best interest to try and do so. Within the steem_whitepaper.pdf there is an in depth explanation of the rewards system. It essentially is an algorithm for promoting a system that does't allow the users to take shortcuts on reading content or rating it. You have to spend the time and give tit he thought so you might as well enjoy your time while on here. I have read some amazing stories on the site and i'm looking forward to adding some great creative content. It's really about challenging yourself to find great content to put on the site.    I'm excited to be a part of this communal effort. Sit back relax and get ready to dig into all this great content be a part of it. Get to it steemers!

Great post and love the positivity! If you enjoy the social interaction it can be a great place to research, discover learn and maybe earn. Enjoy!

Thank you. I really excited to see some further creativity on the site!

I saw that you read and up voted one of my old posts and after re-reading this one I'm quite flattered! This post of yours reflects some of the same thoughts that I speak about in my new post. I'd appreciate your opinion but remember I'm neither an economist nor a writer.
