Some Great Reasons To Start Steemit… Aside From The Payout.

Published by alvinauh on

As I was sharing about my Steemit journey at the Steemit Bootcamp, I started to wonder. I wondered what would have made a great selling point for my Steemit experience. After all, not everyone is free to go online and just write for fun. Surely, there was something that I could talk about that could entice someone to come on to Steemit. Thus, I started sharing about my experience, not in a technical sense, but in a more personal manner.

I Wrote A Book

Yes, i know you have heard of this many times. I wrote a book. But really, it has been one of those things on my list that I get to tick off and I am happy about it. However, a lot of the ideas and inspiration were synthesized from my articles on Steemit.

I was scrolling through over 300 posts that I have written. In those posts, realized that I have some really good teaching stories. They were personal and they were the stories that I have used time and time again whenever I go out training future teachers. There were a few stories that would normally wow the audience. Thus, I took a good number of them and adapted them into a book.

I went on to say that if they were ever thinking of writing a book, Steemit would be a great place to start compiling their thoughts and get paid doing just that. I for one sure am glad that I have found a way to use my ideas for something else.

Learning About Blockchain

The next thing that I spoke about was about learning about Blockchain and Cryptocurrency in general. I remember that when I first heard about Steemit, it sounded like a scam. However, upon studying it, a lot of the way it is being run makes sense. Aside from that, because of the ease of converting Steem into some other Cryptocurrencies through @blocktrades, I was able to get involved in other Cryptocurrencies.

The thing that I have noticed about Cryptocurrecies is that, it is either a really good great idea or a really bad great idea. Either way, its a great idea and concept. Thus,  I think we will be seeing it more and more in our everyday life. As such, why not understand it better instead of listening to those who are uninformed.

The media has always portrayed Cryptocurrencies in a negative light but never fully understanding it. With Steemit, I was able to see the other side of the story. This side is never portrayed in the mainstream media.


Exploring Your Other Talents

Finally, one of the best experiences on Steemit was that I was able to tick off some items from my list. That includes having my own blog. I know, not everyone wants to have a blog. However, you will never really know how good a content creator or a live-streamer you may be.

With Steemit, once you have decided to embark on this journey, you will find that there are many opportunities to explore your own talents. Such opportunities may lead to better things in the future. But, one thing is for sure, unless you start writing on Steemit, you will never really know. I ended my sharing session during the Steemit Bootcamp with this:

“Why not give it a try? After all, what do you have to lose?”
