Some of you might know that I was pretty active on Steemit a few months back. I did some research and I made some mistakes during the learning curve but I managed to earn some decent money.
With posts that made me $150+, $600+, $800+, $300, $400 etc. etc. I'm truly satisfied. It was amazing and I loved the extra cash.
However, I haven't made a single post in 2 months now. - The reason?
First of all, Steem and Steem Dollars have dropped in value, even though Steem Dollars have managed to hold steady at around $1.. But Steem has decreased a lot.
At the time I'm writing this, Steem is worth: $0.101109, and Steem Dollars are worth: $0.986924.
That being said, the top earners who made an average of $1000 for a single post 3-4 months ago gets about $50 or so nowadays.. So it's an INSANE drop in value.
However, that's not the main reason I decided to stop publishing content there. I still love the idea of Steemit and I will most likely go back in the future too.. But I also noticed that most of the top earners got their votes (basically the money) from the same people each time. On all their posts.
That basically ended up in thousands of new users each day, all of them tried their best and they earned a big fat zero, meanwhile the users who've been members for a few months still got $1000+ from their posts. No matter the quality and no matter the post. - That's pure BS in my opinion, and even though I was lucky enough to hit the "jackpot" a few times, I just can't work in such an environment.
And that's the main reason I decided to quit. Or at least pause my contributions on Steemit. - I do understand that some people will be more likely to earn more than others and I know that some people will have more luck then others.. But to basically give the same people ALL the money, each and everytime.. For whatever crap they post.. That's pure BS.
If you're interested I'd advice you to go back to Steemit once their currency have increased and when they've managed to find a proper solution on their voting system.
