I can totally relate to your story. It took me 3.5 years to reach 70 rep ( only a week or two ago ) and if it weren't for the Tribe
steem up / Abundance Tribe vote I would only make a couple of Hive per post. This is exactly the reason why I moved my attention to LeoFinance ( no matter how boring / uncreative the content often is on there ) and now Hive gaming. Us creatives need to keep adapting. We'll always find a way...
Congratz on reaching level 70 and let's keep growing alongside each other. You're an inspiration for a lot of people on here and I like to think that the same goes for me.
Onward and upward my friend!✨
