Part of this is due to many having their votes set to do so using a bot. I wonder at times how much content is actually read that has votes.

Another aspect is many like myself, who have little SP in the scheme of things, and this limits how much voting we have at our disposal. I vote for your posts sometimes, but I find I often have to leave some posts unvoted. Especially if I interact with some (as I am here) and they reply. I usually vote replies despite it burning the vote for being dust.

I appreciate your conduct here, and at times am smart enough to understand the topics you cover. Understand if it becomes to much, but sometimes my lack of vote is not due to disinterest or ignorance on the topic at hand.

Thanks for the reply! You're right on both points, especially the one excerpted. Much of my own voting power runs on autopilot, too, so I have no grounds to complain. Although, I do try to keep an eye on my bot and have the rules up to date so that my votes are distributed to diverse authors and valuable topics.

My point in posting isn't to gripe about the rewards, though. That's just how the game works here. In this post, I just wanted to do some extra post and idea promotion. I've never really been much of a marketing person, but for Steem to grow out of the doldrums, I think we all need to pick up a little bit of that skill. It doesn't do much good for anyone if I put a bunch of thought into the design of these posts and then keep it all to myself.
