The concept of steemit is different, contribute to the community and earn while doing so ,it attracts many of us when steemit started back then, the volatility of the bearish cryprocurrency market back then.
The steemit platform as developed since its launching, its actually challenging to become a writer to create a quality content for audience on steemit and getting rewarded for doing so.
Just like website monetisation by google adsense, reward for passion we can always develop ourselves to become a better content creator to achieve our wishes on the platform.
This is a source of wealth creation, which will be as the result of passion, consistency, creativity, and just don't get too much attached to the upvoting things just do your things here and the reward will come. this are the lesson learnt while away.
