Why Am I Still Here? Initiative


This bear market for Steemians has been like hell week for Navy Seals.
Hell week is specifically to break a person and make them quit.

What they found out was, in most cases, when one person quits, the entire unit quit. That is because quitting is contagious and when you're not fighting for something bigger than yourself it makes quitting an option.

Steem incentivises communications & gives the tools to buidl immutable communities, however, money alone is obviously not what kept a lot of you here.
What gives you the motivation to keep posting, curating, interacinng with and or helping grow the Stee ccommunity, despie this 2-year bear maarket?

Are you ride or die for Steem, if so, why?
What mde you keep going here on Steem? Please write a whole post sharing your story.

10 posts (shared on Twitter or other social media) will be rewarded with 100% upvotes. The 10 winning posts will be picked by me, @mindtrap & @acidyo - Even if your post isn't in the top 10, upvotes will be given in lesser amounts to active participants.

DETAILS TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR UPVOTES:

  • Share your Steem post to Twitter. Comment below with both your Twitter link & Steem post link.
  • Use the tag #SteemImpact in your Steem post & use the hashtag #STEEM in your tweet.
  • The title of your Steem post shoud be "Why I Am Sttill Here" & the main Steem tag or one of the first 5 tags should be #steemimpact
  • Use #POSH tag on Steem to receive @ocdb upvotes as well! @threespeak will be giving out upvotes for #threespeak videos based on this initiative!

Steem incentivises communities, however, money alone is obviously not what kept a lot of you here.

Well, I suspect Steem not necessarily incentivises 'communities' as such. But rather 'communications' no matter if these are big or small.

However the very important thing here on Steem, apparently is the fact to mingle with alike people who have at least a minimum of gray matter left in their brains where hopefully is swimming a blink of logic, reasoning, eloquence, coherence, common sense and eventually wisdom to pull and put all those previous ingredients together for a healthy & rational consumption.

Yeah! by fortune, the Steem blockchain already counts with a good bunch of those remarkable chefs. :)

Love it that you do this so regularly @theycallmedan and more importantly, your confidence in Steem. I do hope that folk who don't usually, participate. I fear, that should I, I will be repeating myself: I came for the (potential) money and stayed for the community.

I watch #steemimpact and.look forward to reading folk's contributions.

All the best for your family - trust all will soon be well.

@theycallmedan Reading about your scarce operations here in the comments, I can commiserate, as I also had one, but it did not keep me away from steemit. We are born fighters. On another note I want to thank you sincerely for the upvote on our post yesterday.
Just a question here, do you perhaps have an argument or know if someone does with someone called likwid, as I saw this morning that he downvoted the post with $10?
Blessings to your work!

I was going to participate and then saw the twitter share requirement again. Your obsession with twitter is amazing. :)

I have been here for Steem not Tweets. One of these days I may have to start tweeting. Not today.

02.03.2020 07:15

Fair enough. Steem does not have a centralized marketing team. So it is up to us to promote Steem to outsiders. I think Twitter is a good place because of "Crypto Twitter" and how easy it is to market Steem there vs. other places. TBH, Twitter may be the only place you can actually get some good marketing done without being banned/removed like Reddit or FB.

02.03.2020 07:38

I understand that. One if these days your posts and contests will turn me into an active twitter user. When that happens, I can’t guarantee I will continue using steem. :)

It's not hell if doing it for the passion. People whom suffered with training, they quite. People whom embrace the growing pain succeed. Done my part and hope it helps to strengthen others as well.

Thanks for doing that, @jongolson - I've been here for less than two months so it's a bit early for me to say why I'm "still" here, LOL! I'm here because I like the idea, the potential and the community, especially the CTPTalk crowd. CTPTalk is my main focus, but I like the options we have to create completely unrelated stuff directly on Steem and get rewarded for it too.

I have stayed because the potential of Steem being the one world currency is absolutely there. Also the lives that this platform has reached throughout the years is another reason I support Steem. The drama that has ensued within Steem has been entertaining, but not now!!!

I'm not, the wonders of a non decentralized system even though Steemit has claimed to be for a long time now. Nothing good has come from steem/steemit for the last 2 years now. It's just constant BS and broken promises.

I think it's safe to say people that hang around here is the definition of insanity. When you continue to support something over and over again and expect a different outcome.
