Can Comments be Better Than Blog Post??? See the Results 2 Days Commenting VS Posting Blog!
If you’re not planning to make lots of quality blog post on steemit or for some reason you think you cannot do it, then you may be thinking of commenting as an alternative.
You can earn from curation process if you want but I will try to post another article about it. This time, let’s check what happened with what I did 2 days ago.
This was my lonely account 2 days ago:
I know I know, Quite embarrassing right? All you see is “$0.00”. No earnings at all!
So what I did was, I tried to create lots of comments ( let's avoid spamming please!) and tried my best to make my every comment meaningful and constructive as possible. Sometimes I tend to criticize the content for the purpose of the author adding some improvements to it but of course not to offend his writing skills.
I was just simply giving an opinion as a reader . . .
Lesson Learned #1: Nothing good will happen in long term if you just spam comments. You might get banned or flagged by other steemians if you do that bad habit. Please avoid that for your own sake!
This post is just for the sake of comparing whether putting meaningful comments can be a good strategy for those who cannot write articles or post every single day.

Now, here’s some screenshot of my current profile.
Let’s try to see the difference =)
So I did some additional comments and addd 1 post + I resteemed a post that I find Interesting.
I got 58 followers, 232 posts, and following 113 people.
On my blog page above, there are 2 posts which are mine and the one on top which is a post I resteemed.
The first post I wrote is my Introduction post (I’m really sorry but I’m not comfortable of putting my picture on that page for security reasons) and the second is about these commenting and posting blog thing.
Let's try to zoom in a little bit:
So I got $5.99 on the second post and $0.56 on the first post as I write this third post. Therefore, I got a total of more or less $6.55! Hmmmm not bad I guess? Yeeehhheeey!!! =D
I'm still a newbie and my account is like less than a week old as I write my third post and I did not use any bots or software to achieve this kind of result. What I did was write what I know and be patient ( I really thought it will be still $0.00).
I'm not expecting it to be this much actually. I'm just expecting it to be like 50 cents or less.
Right now, I’m waiting for the full 9 days and I’m so excited to see what will happen ^_^. (Cross fingers).
I will try to post it on my blog as well for the results.
Now, let’s go to my Comments Page and see what’s in there…
Well, I still see some $0.00 but let’s take a look deeper.
Let’s try to scroll down and see what we’ve got:
Ok, so there's $0.24 and $0.01... small but still earnings :)
There's another $0.03 and $0.02
Yup! So commenting made some earnings as well. Great! =D
Let’s find more of what we’ve got…
That's another $0.06 . . .
Let's go deeper ^__^
Nice! So there's $0.11, $0.03, $0.02 and another $0.03 . . .
Now there's $0.05, $0.10, $0.03 and $0.46!
So yeah! You can also earn from comments that's being upvoted :)
There's still some earning if I scroll down but I guess these photos are enought to prove the point.
Based on these results, I can pretty much say that giving meaningful, constructive and appreciative comments to some posts can bring you income as well.
This must be a good news for newbies specially those who are just starting out with steemit and still confused how things are done in this platform.
Lesson Learned #2: Yes, adding comments can bring you income but it’s still better to try at least post once a day or maybe at least twice a week.
It should not be a very hard task. (I’m kind a busy doing other business too =D). It’s OK if you don’t earn that much at first but be sure to learn something new every day so in the future, you can be a better you.
I’m not yet on the 9th day so things might still change. There’s a chance that those comments might earn more than my post or vice versa but the important thing I want to impart to my fellow newbies is you should never give up trying something new!
We must take every single day as a challenge and opportunity to learn. Unless you do something (writing posts, commenting, voting, etc.) then nothing will happen.
Your goals will not be the one to walk towards you. You should be the one to walk towards it.
Until then my fellow steemians! I can’t wait what tomorrow might bring =D
