Spencer: What else would you like to say to everybody who’s watching this? Final thoughts, final words, go ahead.

Matt: Yeah, so I mean, there could be all sorts of different people, I guess, who are watching this. But especially for those of you who are newer to the platform. Welcome, and very glad that there are a lot of new faces on here. You know, one of the things that I don’t like is that because of the monetization system, it kind of just encourages everyone to post, and post, and post, and post, as much as you can just for the sake of posting and just to earn the rewards from posting. Rather than traditionally when there isn’t that reward system. People are, you know, there’s no reason to just post unless you really have something kind of important, or that people will really find valuable to post about.

So I would really encourage people to comment more rather than post more. Because one of the things I think is lacking on Steem, compared to other platforms, is good high-quality comments. And, I know, especially with myself, and a lot of whales who have much more Steem Power than I do, really appreciate when people take the time to write thoughtful comments on their posts. And they give it significant up votes. So I think you can earn more direct money for the time that you invest by commenting. And also earn more from a reputation perspective both the actual, you know, reputations stored on the block chain and just people actually knowing about you. Who you are and, you know, that that you’re taking the time to read your post, their posts, and and providing some thoughtful comments.

So you know what I would like to see is a lot more people reading and commenting with things that aren’t just ‘great post up vote me’ rather just posting just for the sake of posting. Because they feel like they have to post every day, or that’s that’s how to get ahead here. So, yeah, that’s that’s my overall advice. You know, kind of for newer users is to spend their time reading, you know, voting on things that they like and commenting.

Spencer: I agree with you 100% on that. I think that commenting on other people’s posts is huge.
