From a random resteem, I came across to @midlet's survey and decided to give it a shot. Not because I want to be eligible for the 10 STEEM he will reward the first ten that will participate. Not at all...
Even if I am eligible for some prize, plz exclude me as my only intention was to help you build your community and give you feedback
The reason I am participating is because I want to spread awareness regarding the STEEM token and the Steem community, highlighting the pros and pointing out the cons so that we can grow stronger. So let's see...
How long have you been using Steem?
Well, there hasn't been a day since January 10th 2018 when my account was officially approved that I wasn't active on Steem one way or another. Either by posting daily, although I don't have so much free time lately as I use to have or by commenting and upvoting the blogs I enjoy to read. That makes us almost 2 years...in 6 days. So expect a celebration post next week. Ha!
Where are you in terms of SP? (Plankton(0-500SP), Minnow(500-5000SP), Dolphin(5k-50kSP), Whale(you're probably not a whale, if you are you know what a whale is))
I guess I am a mid sized dolphin, holding 26K Steem Power. The goal is to turn into an "orca" before the end of the year.
Where are you in the world? (Just Country)
What brought you to Steem?
The possibility to earn, not to make a living, without busting my ass off to work.
What was your first impression?
Taking into account that I joined Steem during the previous bull run, I was like:"WOW...Really now? People earn hundreds and some of them thousands of dollars just by blogging?" Steem was sitting at 4.5$ back in the day and the payouts used to be outrageous(?)
How do you feel about the current state of Steem?
I think that exactly because Steem is unique by default I expected the ride to be bumpy. The dive in the price of STEEM doesn't concern me at all, in fact I think we should be grateful to the bear market because all this progress and development of the last months might hadn't taken place. The only thing that worries me a little is the declining daily activity...
How often do you use Steem applications/websites/etc?
Every single day.
What is your favorite Steem Application and why?
Hmm...I think Busy.org and Steempeak. Especially the latter, beautifully designed, extremely detailed and functional wallet and the team behind this project keep adding nice touches that make everyone's experience a lot better.
What’s your favorite thing about Steem?
That is a hidden gem and for once I am amongst the really early adopters.
What’s your least favorite thing about Steem?
That once a civil war breaks out, the platform feels like a battlefield...Oh and the absolutely chaotic content discovery...Hopefully when communities and SMT's officially launch....
How difficult/easy would you say it is to use Steem?
To be absolutely honest with you Steem ain't exactly a piece of cake. A bunch of keys...curves...auction windows...RC's...I mean for me, after 2 years it is a piece of cake...I highly doubt that a new comer feels the same though...
Would you recommend Steem to family/friends/coworkers? If no why not?
Trust me I am a pain in the ass. Steem is my favorite topic regardless of where I may be, so yeah, I DO recommend it. Damn...I wonder how she hasn't break up with me yet....I think you get the feeling.
What do you wish you could do with Steem that you can’t currently?
Honestly? If at some point I could build an online business on top of the Steem network that would be awesome. Even more awesome it would be to get to a point to live off of curation :P
What excites you most about Steem?
That there are no limitations. Once someone comes up with an idea Steem is the perfect host, whether it is a business or project or a collaboration...you name it.
What worries you most about Steem?
The idea that it might never perform according to its potential...we need way more crazy people just like you and me around here.
Have a great one peeps!
