When I Was Asked "Do You See Steem/Steemit Succeeding?" And I Asked Back; "Isn't Steemit Already "A Success"?". Check Again. Look Intently!
A new concept is falling in place to execute this below:
"True celebrity-hood" once and for all, for "everyone"
It will begin unfolding gradually in the next few days and it carries excitement and tons of awesomeness. There will be beautiful testimonies.
No more worries, for together we will fix many worries.
No worries, we are still on track because the entire curriculum has been "one" and the same.
The more recent "ULOGS" has simply been a part of one entire curriculum!
Note: i stood up morning from bed and decided to do a quick walk and i ended up doing this video, talking about ULOGS:

I love steem
It networks humans in special ways
It sheds the "the nations" in us a bit, making nations "mere locations" and i tell you, "a full-blown human (in whose case, "nations were locations") is a special breed "human".
Hahaha, don't worry, i really love steem/steemit because "you" are here and i am yours; "your boy Terry".
Thus, everything i do e.g here on steemit, even the tiny words i pop, have paradigms related to "steem growth and the application of steem/steemit, in relation to "adjusting the world" (attaining the awesomest version of humans)".
The recent ULOGS is simply another means to mine more of "the human".
The thing is, when you apply the technology as a means to enhance the human, then the technology itself will attain "towards perfection".
We touched on this recently during the recent talk on the SteemGigs discord, in my response to the question; "do i see steem succeeding?".
The steemian who posed the question, has observed that it has becoming harder "earning-wise", than used to be the case months ago and he wanted to hear my thoughts.
He spoke of curation and of how even curation towards steemit posts has grown scarce etc
I tackled the questions in two parts. For one, i reversed the questions just a bit, asking instead; "hasn't steemit already succeeded?"
It my case, "it has", starting almost the very day i spotted it
and looking back now, so yes; "the very day, i found and decided to join steemit".
Yes, from day one, steemit was a success in my case and i truly believe steemit is already a "success" (even now) in many of our cases, if we simply looked more intently.
While i covered history and all and how much steemit has evolved from where it used to be, I highlighted that, even from "day one", when steemit was way harder to use than now and way harder to earn rewards on too, steemit was a success then and in a ton of ways.
Just finding it alone was "breakthrough", because hahaha, i may not have found it at all or i may have found it and not looked at it twice because the internet has played me many times etc.
Yes, to find steemit, i was in research-mode for a decade and among what i was researching, was for "an enabling environment" to keep my dreams alive on in dream-bits and rehearse them into fruition and an "enabling environment", when i arrive on here, was steemit.
I spotted the spottables very quickly. (Note: i was in research-mode and i didn't join steemit the first time. I found it organically again and this time connected with the author and decided to join then.)
My first donation was around 5 steem from @sykochica! Then, i put up certain ideas related to my dreams, using my post to play them out and i got "hundreds of steem" combined from @benjojo and @papa-pepper and where does that ever happen in the entire world, "among strangers" on the entire web?
These days, people don't even lose money. Have you walked your streets lately, hoping to see 50 cents on the street somewhere? "Years ago, you may find; "these days" you will sweat out a bucket to find".
Back to the internet space!
My first email to the Mark Zuckerberg Facebook account and my Facebook account got deleted and never recovered and their reason was not "disclosable".
That was Mark practically throwing a berg at me, zuck-ing "life" out of the "life it took to me to dream".
Hahaha, where i am from, "dream" alone and you see should deserve lorry-loads of accolades.
Then, simply try contact people (on Facebook) from other IP locations e.g strangers, perhaps, to share your dreams and your Facebook account can get suspended.
Then, turn to Twitter DMs and almost every message is an auto-responder, to where you are almost always "simply another marketable-to client".
The irony and especial genius is: this was happening on a blockchain, where there was a "privacy" paradigm.
Hahaha, steemit was a success to me from day one.....
Then, i jumped on steemspeak on discord at the time and CEO(s) filled the place, 24/7! Hahaha, can't dreams now happen so?
Visit the entire internet and seek a mentor or a place filled with CEOs, "free" and tell me if you find one. Ned used to hangout on those discords
Or gather Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates in a room and do a hangout.
Well, i didn't hangout on steemspeak for too long, for in a short span of time, i spotted the spottables but much of this "spotting" happened fast because of my "life before steemit";
and "life before steemit" is still one of the basics that i teach till date, when it comes to "steemit success".
Once, i jumped on steemspeak to try to affirm one of my early conclusions and it had something to do with SEO, (upon my finding out that steemit hung on decentralized servers) etc
At the time, i also wanted to figure out, steemit's own content-distribution algorithm, to figure out if IP location was a factor.
I didn't get an affirmative answer but i easily saw the answers. I had an audience from every nation here on steemit.
Prior to steemit, even to do a simple blogspot post like, "Hey Obama, listen to my wailing", with aims of reaching perhaps, the USA audience, i would have to have worried about how to beat IP location barrier (SEO- related), to the point of, even sending my content to friends in USA, so that they could help me upload it from there as i perceived that the search engines were beginning to detect VPN.
Over time, i would have my friend open the Gmail tied to the blogspot from USA, altogether
Hahaha, a young boy made some 40 million USD selling a digital product (related to SEO) on Clickbank, at 40 USD a copy. I had bought it then, thinking it was some genius software, only to find out it was a bunch of PDF(s) and Adwords-related videos. (Notice that, he easily had a million customers; showing you that, something that steemit offers for free, is hotcake "in money", out there)
You see, very early on steemit, i recognized much of these steemit's beauty e.g i was realizing that steemit posts were ranking in the search engines (and perhaps, distributed servers aids that etc); plus, recall that i found steemit organically, via the search engines.
Being new on steemit and not entire landed, i had found Akasha and YOURS (other blogging-based platforms tied to cryptocurrency) etc and i had tried to see what they offer but again "steemit" was easily-spottable by me and established "success".
The CEO and CTO of YOURS had several google hangouts with me. I didn't proceed with their vision, because i could easily see, where "steemit" was. Then on Akasha, i would have had to download like an entire blockchain or so and i didn't see signs that its content was ranking in the search engines etc and ofcourse, you have needed to pay gas for each transaction.
By various dimensions, "steemit" was "success" to me, from day one!
Then gosh, i saw that there was "steem" too and its beauty blew up instantly and i could see! I didn't read whitepapers because the whitepaper can't even cover this beauty.
Like i keep saying "serve the search engines" and steem was simply genius by taking up this model (even with its promotion)
Note; i was a product of "find steemit organically using the search engines" and according to me, though slow, it is the most solid form of promotion. So keep on steeming!!!
Then, there was a contest, that was trying to propose new slogans for steemit and my slogan entries came from entirely different dimensions. Yes, as early as my minnow days, one of my proposed slogan had to do with "re-shaping the "entire internet" by serving the search engines, till there is a steemit blog for each search query.
Then, so ofcourse, i had seen steemit as something different and away from the entire internet; "a home away, from the rest of the internet; then i started a tag called "steemitisbeautiful" and my first channel on steem.chat was created by @firepower and it was called:
Well, i won't say too much more about this, within this post. I covered this and more in the last talk on the discord and this post is simply out here, to give you glimpses of my thoughts about steemit and of it being beautiful, since day one, when steemit as a UI was with bugs etc
Plus, had lows of 7 cents
"And what if it has flaws now?", one may want to say! Then my next question will be; "are humans without flaws?" or "isn't steem hosting humans?"; hahaha, isn't any tech or blockchain-based social platform you see out there going to host humans too?
Besides that though, even if steem has the flaws now, like one may want to say, it has done me one or more good and i tell you, "it has done you too!" Now, do i hastily forget this good, in the face of flaws?
some may have got to know about the world of digital currency, for the very first time, through steemit. Isn't that one ginormous good, if you ended up finding a career in technical analysis?
If you met @sykochica on steemit and she checks on you everyday, isn't that one good?
If you learned about how an impending bitcoin fork, upon reading a steemit post and you got some free bitcoin cash as a result, wasn't that one good?
If you have spent a decade on the internet and have uploaded 100 videos on YOUTUBE even with its monetization model and you have not held 5 cents from it in your hands but you have now held your very first online-earning on hand, however small (by means of steemit), tasting that it is indeed possible to earn online etc; isn't that one good?
Now, if steemit has done at least one good, even if just once, within your steemit career; can't it be said to have been a success?
In my case, it so can!
If it is develops flaws now or in the future, can't it still be said to have been a "success", by virtue of the one good that it has done you?
In my case, even with humans, "i don't hastily forget all your past good because you did me bad".
Hahaha and you know what, on steem and steemit, i don't see flaws, because i sift flaws to find use for good.
Basically, i see exciting challenges and i see how beautiful humans can be, when they combine to take challenges up etc
Moreso, we have a say as stakeholders of steem. If decide to take "steem" to the moon (with conviction), "steem will go to the moon".
Don't let the uncertainties of the future deter you from dreaming altogether. Dream first, evolve your dream into spanless-ness, then re-shape that future and i tell you; "with steem, "dreams are equaller reality"".
Look more intently.
