Two months ago I managed to save up 200 steem which I withdrew into FIAT. At that time I was really contemplating if I should power up or withdrawal. Luckily I made the right choice it seems.
At this moment being, I'm preparing myself to move to UK [Scotland] and if I hadn't withdrawn that steem I wouldn't have the opportunity right now.
This platform has provided me with a great blessing as a content creator, something I would have never thought possible for my rundown country.
I was really motivated to put efforts and improve my content here on steemit but as the days passed that motivation started to get deflated. And I will tell you all why.
A serious Concern
As A content creator, I don't have a ton of money to back me here, Everything I've ever earned is through writing and creating, the one thing that steemit "Was" about back when I started.
It was advertised as a platform that helps Bloggers make an earning for their Creative skills and Efforts.
I used to go on Trending every day and read lovely articles and watch how the platform grows day by day, being motivated by the Freedom of speech everyone has.
Now I only see this.

P.S I'm not negatively polarized towards Haejin, even though I lost a ton of money on his XVG prediction that crashed.
The thing is that all of this doesn't Inspire me to improve my writing skills and improve my content here, mainly because I know that sooner or later almost nobody will care about it and the platform will get more broken and orientated towards a greedy community. Its made in such a way and it is inevitable because people have money invested.
I do think that STEEMIT the blogging site will eventually break if nothing is done, mainly because quality content creators get demoralized by such stuff, I came here to improve myself and came with the intentions to attract an audience of like-minded people.
And when I look at the comment section i get even more demoralized to do anything.
Nothing against this person, I mean no disrespect, but in my eyes this kinda stuff makes me regret putting so much effort into my writing.
Also, I don't care if I get a flag or something, that would be one more reasson to power down and leave.
My Thoughts Right Now
Day by day things are getting worse and worse for me. And I'm not ashamed to admit that the only people that are helping me here are the guys behind @ecotrain. I've said this before and I will say it again, if it wasn't for them I would have left the platform.
And I do think that the Group deserves a delegation because its groups like this that are still keeping quality people here.
Currently, I'm thinking if I should continue creating good daily content, or just give up and leave for a year, in hopes things get better.
One of my objectives here was to share content that helps people consciously expand, hence How can I do that when I get demoralized by the day. People obviously have a greater interest in bids and ponzy schemes rather than having a good read.
And that does catch up to you ! That's the meta, that's the trend here, you can't run from the tribe. Sooner or later everyone will start using vote bots, sooner or later content quality will drop.
The only thing that might provide me with an opportunity to reach out to people would be a "FAT" SP delegation and even then people will only read my stuff and comment for a nice upvote.
But still !
I am grateful for every blessing that the people here have given me, it is beyond anything imaginable in my current position. And I am grateful for all of the people who took 3/5 minutes to read my writings. I wrote for the people after all, the blessing of acceptance was the thing giving me inspiration to write.
I try to keep my content as Original as possible, also I never use up voting automation. If you get an up vote from me, then I love what you do !
