Keep On Truckin'

in steemitsuccess •  2 years ago 

Awhile ago, I read...

Steemit is

  • a social media platform
    • where everyone gets paid for
      • creating content
      • curating content

✋ That sounds too good to be true. ✋

  • Come to find out
    • it's actually
      • 😎 Too good to be ignored! 😎

7 days ago, I got registered with Steemit.

My Wallet before and after

The post showed pending payout of $0.15, (0.08 SBD, 0.02 SP)

BeforeAfter
STEEM0.000 STEEM0.000 STEEM
STEEM POWER0.500 STEEM (+14.524 STEEM)0.517 STEEM (+14.524 STEEM)
STEEM DOLLARS$0.000$0.062
SAVINGS0.0000.000 STEEM
STEEM$0.000$0.000

That proved...
* * * you CAN earn money ... on Steemit
- - - - - - - - - - simply by posting original content!

Let me tell you,

  • if you click on the carat by the money on the post
    • it tells you how much it will pay out and when.
      • watching it click down the last few minutes was wowzer super exciting!!!
  • It did take it a few minutes to show up in my wallet...
  • It showed up first at https://steemnow.com/@wizardave
    • OK, maybe not, there was a button at the top of my wallet to add it.
      • I might not have noticed that the first 100 times (haha) I refreshed the page...

Now when I click on that carat, it says...

  • Past Payouts $0.15
      • Author $0.13
        +(0.06 SBD, 0.02 SP)
      • Curators $0.02

That post got:

  • 6 upvotes, including one from me
  • 3 comments
    • 2 may be bots ???

I don't guess I can retire, yet.

  • I cannot live out my life on $0.15
    • But, now I have learned one key
      • I can get paid for creating content!

All I have to do to retire...

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PSA (Public Service Announcement):
You don't have to be a certain age to retire.
You can retire as soon as you earn enough income to live the rest of your life without working.

  • I've been involved with a few Network Marketing companies.
    • When I asked, when do you plan on retiring?
      • The typical answer was "at age suchandsuch."
        Some people could retire at 65, when social security kicked in for them.
        Some people could retire at 55, when they could 80 and out through their company.
        Sadly, perhaps one of the most common answers was,
        🙄 "I'll have to work until I die." 🙄

Never Forget
You don't have to be a certain age to retire.
You can retire as soon as you earn enough income to live the rest of your life without working.

I've just learned the first key... how to make money by creating content.
I still have to learn the second key... how to make money by curating content.

Then all I will have to do is...
