Most of the new and even old Steemians are not satisfied with the low amount of upvotes and views on their posts. After HF19 happened, it's natural that majority of this community is saving upvotes for the content and authors they enjoy and like. SteemPower influencing is possibly the most important part of Steemit. It's a collective determination of what content is going to get attention. That's one of the best things Steemit has to offer...but, there are also new users incoming (I'm one too, joined in May) who consider that Steemit is not fair. Let's make that clear: life is not fair. So how can one network which is still in it's beta stage, and a social experiment be immediately fair? Are you so optimistic and hyped in the belief that everything has to be fair?
Yes, there are things that need to be improved, but that will happen in time, as this community and it's collective intelligence is gaining more awareness of the pros and cons of the current stage of Steemit platform.
I think that most of the new users are here because someone told them they can make money. That is true. This is probably one of the few legit online money-earning websites, and the best thing about it is that you are earning for sharing your content. It's social media state-of-art. It's how it should be. It's how it is. It's how it always will be...
While Facebook will always be free...
Steemit is a revolutionary platform that will change our perception of social media concept on the worldwide, mainstream level.
The best part of it: it's run on decentralized Blockchain platform!
What about those 20 bucks?

When I joined in May, I didn't post enough in the beginning. I was just reading how things are going here, learning and reading about Steemit. Now I'm on the run of reaching my first 500 SP, so here's my view on the daily-earning situation.
- I won't consider Steemit as my main income. It's summer and I have lot's of free time, even though I'm working.
- I'm glad for just being the part of this project, and I'm also glad to see many people are earning pretty nice sums of money everyday.
- Steemit is a great community to participate in. Steemit.chat and Discord chat are a great way to get into the community faster.
- Steemit is growing speedlight fast
- Steemit community is already supporting charities, numerous projects run by Steemians. And all that because of the amazing foundations of this platform.
- Steemit has great authors like @jerrybanfield - mentor in magnificence. @thecryptofiend - jack of all trades, master of all. (not flattering, check his blog) @trafalgar - Satire guru of Steemit. @sweetsssj - sweet, delicious and opinionated traveler. @dollarvigilante - with great content about cryptos and some other topics. @dumar022 - first Steemian I met here who spoke my language and introduced me to the basis of this community. @steemitqa - When Zappl? @aggroed - supporter of new members aka minnows with huge project @minnowsupport. @craig-grant - vlogs about cryptos, mining, @jesta - https://beta.chainbb.com/developer and @cryptoctopus @timsaid - german Steemit legend. @velimir - great stories and photos @acidyo @fyrstikken and many others...
- Steem Trails - I would mention @philosophy-trail with refreshing daily philosophy questions. Thank you.
To be honest. I only have a couple of blog posts that went to 20$ or above. It's my lack of time needed for researching the particular subjects I'm interested in. Also, there is a language barrier and my lack of english. But, I'm hoping to improve myself in the next months because Steemit is going mainstream, and only high quality articles and authors will actually have a chance to get on the stage.

- Commenting - Forget about writing blogs first week or two, or three, here. After your introduction post, you may or may not earn as equal as much on your blog posts, it depends on the quality of your work here and the participation. The number of Steemians doubled since I joined. So, why commenting? - Making friendships on Steemit. Commenting is the best starting way to gain some ground in the community. The more you comment, the more you are recognizable by the various authors and members. And that means more chances of getting atttention on your blog posts and yourself.
- Participating - Upvoting, blogging after you're settled in the community. Chatting with people who you share your interests with and those who you don't share.
- Niche - finding a specific subject you are going to write about and gaining followers that are interested in that subject.
- You define your Steemit experience.
