The first benefit I can see is that Narrative is new and inspiring, with a new direction of ownership and creating content that is different to Steemit.

 

I like how Narrative has a larger focus on community, Steemit on the other hand is a bit like tweeter and users do come and go fast. It will be great to see how this develops and how the community sticks together on Narrative.

Ted has many many years in Social media and I can see he has thought of this when building Narrative.

As a Steemit user also, I can tell that is very hard to advance and earn something without investing money in Steem power and SBD for promotion. Even if you write great blogs, nobody will see that on Steemit and with money and without bringing any good content to Steemit, you can be powerful and earn a lot. 

With Narrative that can't happen. In Narrative you can have a lot of NRVE but your reputation and earning will depend of content that you are bringing to Narrative. This model is much better then Steemit and new users without money but with great ideas can be successful. Aldo I think that some feature like being rewarded for holding NRVE would be useful for Narrative and NRVE, reputation on Narrative should never depend of number of NRVE tokens.

Agreed with you thanks mate

Actually in Narrative you will have your own "Personal Journal" which is a blog, essentially. It's a public space to share on whatever topic you choose!

I hope so, That can be works as a blog on Narrative I can update daily 
and work great !!! Thanks

Yes I also believe Ted and his works on NARRATIVE 
Let's make NARRATIVE BETTER THAN STEEMIT 

My own two cents to add here: I have a blog and, to expand my reach -and because everyone was pumping Steemit because "You can make so much money on your content"-, I opened an account on Steemit and started republishing some of my original content in the platform. Soon after, I got bored. It's full of bots and the only content that actually makes money is crappy, copy/pasted-ad-infinitum articles from different media. Also, have you looked at the Trending content of the Lastest Posts at Steemit? It's a shitshow! It's like somebody puked words on the screen and added some irrelevant images to make the non-content look better.

I am betting on Narrative because I expect this to be a curated, democratic way for people to publish their content, not insulting the community nor the medium by reposting click-bait and actually delivering quality.

Cheers!

PS: also, I tried to remove my Steemit content but, guess what: you cannot remove it. It's there FOREVER. Great.

I agree about Steemit, still using it but it's all about Steem power. I am not sure but I believe that you will not be able to erase blogs also on Narrative because everything is on blockchain.

Yes,
If you don't have Steem Power or STEEM or SBD 
You can not get any success on STEEMIT  
BUT within our platform  we can get more value for our contents and no have to make any additional payment

Actually, that's one important difference with Narrative. We are not being dogmatic about putting everything on blockchain. We're planning to use blockchain for transactions (where it makes sense for transparency and immutability) but not necessarily for the content (where you need to be able to edit and delete). We're looking at lots of options to serve the content, not decided yet the exact structure, but the bottom line for us is that the user experience comes first.

@Rosemary, this is excellent news! I agree: there's no need to use blockchain for EVERYTHING. As an author, I must say that half the greatness and talent is in editing. Or, simply, being able to delete something for whatever reason you see fit. I mean, we are the owners and masters of our own content. Whereas, in Steemit, they don't give a fuck about us as authors, they just care about the money grab.

@cicbar I absolutely disagree, as you can see.

We agree that we disagree 😁 that is beautiful in different opinions 😁 I understand your point and I can't say I'm against it, but if you know that what you write will be permanent then you will write with more responsibility...

Even the Bible has different versions and have been revisited in the last two thousand years, @cicbar. We agree to disagree, but, as I said, one can change and improve their text ad-eternum. It's the magic of it. Unless you are writing news. Or fake news, that is. Then, yeah, better own it .

If Bible wasn’t changed then you wouldn’t have dozens of different churches pronouncing real Bible 😀 I don’t think is bad if content can be changed, both ways have their advantages...

So, I just went on Steemit for the first time... Can't say as I was terribly impressed. 

I recently went there for the first time too.  My impression is that there is a lot of drivel.  A lot of good stuff too mind you... but it is tangible from the tone of too much of the content, that people are primarily competing for cash.  It is just shy of that scummy 'What happened next will blow you away' touch.  That icky 'This funny trick has doctors hating this work-from-home mom' vibe.

Not for me.

Well, @Harj, I think Steemit already cemented it's way into becoming the litter box of the internet. Plus, they show no interest in giving their users a decent UX and UI, with basic functionalities as editing or deleting your content. I have no respect for this platform and am hoping that Narrative will render Steemit absolutely useless. But maybe that's just me.

Comparing Steemit and Narrative is like comparing an apple to an orange. 

Both are platforms where you can publish your content, but that really is the only similarity.

Realistically the only way to monetize your content on Steemit is to have a whale liking and following your content.  It is not about having good content, it really is about who you know (in an inderect way).  On steemit when you look at some of the content that is monetizing, really it is trash.  But that is there system, so users of their platform have to deal with it.

Narrative is a fair, democratic way of getting clean and quality content out to the user/ reader/follower.  The great part you are rewarded for it, not because someone with 1,000,000 NRVE liked it, but because your work was appreciated by anyone you touched with the content.

 

 

I am sure that the original concept of Steemit was purely to award content creators with content and as buying steem you put a stake into the community.  But realistically, the more steem you own the more say/power you have.  

Beyond that, there are a handfull of people that see a new idea or working platform come out and they figure on new ways to monetize from that system, whether it be through scamming, adding an add on, etc.

One example, there are a some people out there that have created bots to vote for posts on steemit.  Some of the bots you lease and some you bid for a lease.  The bot has an account with steem power and it can be used to upvote your own content therefore showing that it has been upvoted and now the post is worth some steem.  People following may end up voting also making the post worth more and more to the person who posted it.
