Wow, Thanks for featuring the Reggaesteem post that we are seeking quality relevant content producers! It could potentially pay well :D

I'll check out the planet market too, getting bullied there and want to make out as best I can.

I hope you get more people join in. ReggaeSteem is doing great work.

good information well involved and clear sure I would love to participate ..

There's always plenty going on. I've seen a few people come back to Steem after a long time away. They will see a few changes.

Hopefully if we can build our profile in the wider world and on social media, former steemians will remember and give it another try.

The one thing that will make steem grow is if quality/good posts get seen and receive a fair payout

That is very true. But you have to also build an audience for content produced, or adapt the content for the audience that is already there.

Understand nothing. But it seems interesting

😀 - thank you
