RE: Is There Any Room For Short Content On Steemit?

in #steemit3 years ago

The balance in return between self voting to leasing your Steem power is a really good example.
I think some of the Flaggards out there are quite socialist in the way they think and act. Don’t like seeing someone who has built up a significant amount of Steem power and the financial risk of leaving it bound up on the platform, actually getting rewarded for their investment.


Thanks for your understanding

Yes, basically with the seemingly ugly amount I was self voting, I was not really breaking even with just leasing out the sp and contributing nothing at all, which would have the same effect on the rewards pool. I bought 90% of my SP to invest in myself, and in this platform. I'm caught between a rock and a hard place because I'm losing to a version of myself that does nothing. Even though, at least some agree, that my content is probably fairly good for the platform.

The appearance of rewards being concentrated always attracts a lot of bad attention, but I don't know if it's always justified. I sometimes wonder if those short content came from a bunch of unknown alt accounts and the votes were similar spread out across several accounts if it would have attracted this level of negative attention. I'm not sure if it's the quality that people are worried about or just the appearance of rewards being concentrated due to my own honesty. The latter is very irrational, and as I'd explained, incorrect factually.

Thanks for your input Stephen, not too sure where I'll go from here, but your view's appreciated
