Everything does. But if I gave you that quote down the street...would you be willing to give me money for it?

Yes! I have always had an interest in self-improvement. I think it is something we should work on everyday!

Every time you read something new, then share your thoughts, written in a coherent manner, you develop. Steemit seems to have more actual conversation and a lot more worth than facebook, so therefore far more value.

And let's be honest who wouldn't rather have an "upvote" than a "thumbs-up"... approval comes in many forms.

As a personal note I started of a forum in 1995, just for information, since that meager daily posting... I became a writer now with7 published books and two more in process. Yes Steemit can be a real stepping stone (and one of value).
