#### There’s a lot of discussion about where Steemit is headed, where it should head, where it is, where folks think it has been, etc.

These discussions seem to involve at least a degree of confusion, depending upon how long one has been on the site, what one’s expectations are and probably just where they find themselves in life at this time.

This was highlighted today in @cryptogee’s excellent post [*Addressing Steemit’s Social Confusion*](https://steemit.com/steemit/@cryptogee/addresing-steemit-s-social-confusion), where he kicks off of @joseph’s excellent post, [*WHY ARE SOME OF STEEMIT BEST WRITERS LEAVING? …*](https://steemit.com/steemit/@joseph/why-are-some-of-steemit-best-writers-leaving-are-you-feeling-ignored-what-can-we-do-to-increase-retention-of-creative-writers-do).

**It got me thinking.** (okay, let that one pass please)

## What is Steemit’s real sale’s pitch?

I mean, yeah, we’ve seen some folks bank nicely off some posts. But that’s changing. And unless Steem moves up in the cryptoworld, payouts aren’t going to ever be attractive enough to be the main motivator.

In addition, as more folks join we may see further dilution.
