More upvotes, less comments?

(Source)

I do not know about you but I think we have lost something important lately due most likely to the new reward system…

Don’t get me wrong, this is not a complaint at all about the new code of STEEM but, in my opinion, since a couple of weeks ago the comments received on my posts have reduced in number drastically…

Honestly, I am not the kind of person willing to “earn” something by commenting but if I feel I have to express my opinion, feelings or gratitude I am commenting always, not expecting an upvote there but maybe building a good relationship with the author.

Perhaps, the aim of this attitude is to find authors-steemians that you like or you are mostly aligned with their thoughts and so, obtaining mutual “engagement” as a reward.

Aversely, having a look to the steem.supply tool from @dragosroua , my level of “engagement” has increased substantially, being the quotient between upsteemers (people that have upvoted me lately) divided by my total number of followers of about 18% while 1 month ago was around 11%.

Suddenly I am receiving a lot of upvotes, sometimes more than a hundred per post despite 90% of them are at the dust level threshold, I think this is good fro me since there is people that likes my posts…

Also, another tool which evaluates the attention rate of an author is the SNAX rank. Here my rank is high, I suppose, since I am located at the 327th place of the steemians active and registered at the SNAX blockchain…

17 posts done in a week, 514 upvotes, 47 comments and 1 resteem…

17 posts and 47 comments in total, this is 2.7 comments per post, the majority of them are related with @actifit or BEER or@runningproject resteem service…

I think that, as an average, I am getting 1 or 2 comments lately per post while 1 month ago they were much more…

As a summary, HF21 / 22 has brought me more upvoters but also has taken the comments …
And it’s the second thing that I’m missing the most lately…

I have not changed my behavior in front of my commenters, I used to reply and give them and upvote on the majority of them and, sometimes, I offer some BEER token in order to balance the small lost on rewards due to the new rewarding system which for sure has something to do in order to explain the reduction of comments but, maybe, I was not expecting such a huge reduction at all.

Anyway, perhaps would be better to do this analysis in a better period of time, once we escape from the claws of the bears…

By my side, I am going to keep commenting, upvoting and supporting others since networking and engagement are the most valuable assets for the sake of oneself and the STEEM blockchain success.
