My List Of Whales To "Curate"
I tried doing a post - it made 8 cents off 42 upvotes. So the warning that users who average less than $20 a post will make less was spot on. Average for me was about a quarter, so I see where it would really improve the steemit experience for everyone by making my posts make less. Just sucking up unjust rewards, shame on me.
So, I am a practical gal. I was losing my gumption to post for quarters, but I am back to "very first post" type payouts now. Almost like I wasted two years making posts, and yet here I am making another one. This is probably my second to last, I have a song I have been working on for open mic, I may post that some day.
For now, I want to point out that the page I linked includes hyperlinks to each account, where you can go and see who is posting and what they are earning. It looks to me like there are maybe a dozen people who are earning that $20+ average. This whole fustercluck helped a dozen people? Whatever. As near as I can tell, the only way I am going to earn any crypto here is to put those people on my autovoter. It is so pathetic. I am not even following them, do not have any interest in what they post for the most part, but they will now get most of my upvotes. And I will sit down and shut up because it simply does not pay to post, and when I post is when I surf around and make some comments so I am just going to disappear and let my autovoter try to suck up a few whale crumbs for me. If you have a better strategy, I will never know because nearly zero actual humans will ever read this or comment.
Oh, the heady dreams of a place where good writing was rewarded, where original content is what gained respect, a merit based reward system. Pfft.
