Major concern: It’s a popularity contest more than a blogging platform.
Real major concern: I am not very good at being popular.
Best moment: Being recognised by Curie. What a lovely surprise.
Worst moment: Blog after being recognised by Curie being hit by the “I spend ages on a blog and it sank without a trace” syndrome.
Most frustrating moment: Spending ages doing a funny Hitler video that was seen by 3 people.
Most embarrassing moment: Writing a blog about my cats because I thought the internet loved cats and making myself a person who blogs about his cats.
Luckiest break: Finagling my way onto Steemit Bloggers.
Lessons learned: Don’t talk about guns with people who love guns.
Most obvious double-edged sword on Steemit: Flagging makes people behave Versus Flagging is open to abuse.
Most annoying thing on Steemit: People commenting on other people’s work to ask for upvotes.
Conclusions drawn: I don't know enough about cryptocurrencies to talk about cryptocurrencies, and I don't know enough about the nuances of Steemit to talk about the nuances of Steemit, which shuts down two big potential avenues of income on here. All I can do is to keep doing what I am doing, which is networking and writing blogs. And I am not sure I am very good at either! And do I need to find a niche?
