In terms of being motivated on Steemit I just focus on the positives, and engaging with people I have met, and reading what interests me.

In terms of Steem (the blockchain), I find it pretty easy to keep investing my time, as there are so many great dapps coming out: @dlike, @actifit, @steemhunt just to name a few! These dapps are revolutionising the way we invest our time, and many are issuing their own tokens, in the lead up to SMTS. This gives such an oppurtunity to diversify our portfolio.

I think that people get to stuck on just the blogging aspect, and forget to realise that there is a whole ecosystem here on the blockchain, and many different oppurtunities

If you are passionate about writing and sharing your thoughts, idea, or your life to the world, you can start a blog and easily express everything. To start blogging, you have to buy domain and hosting.

You can start blogging on Steemit. You do not need to buy domain and hosting. All you have to do is to create a Steemit account. If your account is approved, you are good to go.

You can write about anything on Steemit. No one will come and tell you what to do or what not to do. No one is going to ban you. There is no restriction. You enjoy the complete freedom here on Steemit.

I did not spend more time on Discord at the beginning of my Steemit journey. Now I think I should have spent more time over there. I love to participate in the community.

Whether you win or not, you can learn something from participating in the competition. You get to know amazing people all over the world. It helps us get close to each other.

The comments I get. With most blogs you have not a lot of response but Steemians seem to comment more. That's more worth to me than the few cents I get for a post (Not that I don't like the money!).

So, dear readers: Not only voting, comments are what we thrive on :)

For me, this is the only platform i know as of the moment which i got paid for my post. Though the value of steem and steem dollars is low, im positive enough that it will rise up again.

For me, it's all about the friendship that I have with a lot of people. I don't get the upvotes that I want, but I know it's just a matter of time. I have also read how most of the whales started, it wasn't rosy at first. In fact, @surpassinggoogle didn't earn up to $1 on his introductory post, but look at where he is right now.

For me, I am not motivated to post on Steemit anymore and seldom do.

The low prices of steem and SBD is a large part of the reason, but there's also the reason of hardly getting upvotes or comments.
