RE: Weekly Question - What's your Steem origin story?
I found out about Steem and Steemit after a similar site I was on (tsu.co) shut down. Other members from that site started mentioning Steem/Steemit on Twitter , so I checked out.
I signed up for it but when my account was approved, I didn't do anything with it for 6 months, mainly because I wasn't convinced it would last. Finally, I decided to test it out. It's been interesting so far and I'm glad I stuck around.
