It has more to do with the community I engage with. I started out like any other user looking at the blockchain for some quick buck. I realized this was a lie after 3 days using the platform. I found a community that caters to my interests and went with it. Met some new friends, learned some new stuff, and months just passed doing things like this.
I gained a lot of skills interacting with other artists on the platform because art is my niche. That help me more than the upvotes I get from random people. The sound art advice and real human interactions from the experts in the industry was worth more than short term rewards.
Steem is one of those blockchains which has the real world application of the blockchain technology. There are very few real world applications of the blockchain and rewarding social media is one of them. There are many incentives of steemit
In addition to this I become the witness to the devlopment of the various decentralised applications which are being built on the Steem Blockchain such as musing.io
Due to the fact that a content creator can earn rewards or incentives from this platform and I'm afraid that the majority is thinking of it as a "money making machine".
That's only half the truth, I believe that the Steemit platform house a lot of outstanding people in their field: investors, writers, artists, musicians, and other professionals who are doing great in their field.
So, to be connected to these people is actually more rewarding than the monetary incentives that the platform offers. To build a network among these like minded individuals should be the main focus of each user here. I would say that the incentives is the just the tip of the iceberg and if we look deeper then we might unravel the full reward from it, the network itself :)
The Interaction & Connections. In addition to rewards from Upvote, we can get various kinds of interactions from new people, and that will add to your knowledge. Especially when you are already familiar with them, then you can have various connections with people of different countries, and this is a big advantage.
For example: I have some closest friends from various countries such as the Philippines, Pakistan, India, etc. They are very good, and even when I am in trouble, they are always ready to help me.
Networking and Making Relationships.
The biggest incentive for me to post on Steemit is my own satisfaction and making blogs are a nice way to keep memories. I love eating and going to traveling . I wanted to make blogs about it and maybe in the future I can read my blogs and reminisce all the memories I have been making with my family friends and loved ones. I am enjoying in posting not because of the rewards . Just the thought of writing blogs makes me happy .
Hello @acesontop Usually I am only working on the steemhunt platform and I mostly post hunt via the steemhunt website and I received the big reward of $7 and that was hunt is on the top of ranking he gets the First Position on the steemhunt ranking and it was three months ago but, reward does not matter at all the relation, friendship, knowledge also depends on when you are working on steemit.
