Sometimes we need an upvote - for the efforts we make. I think it's not about the content creators only. It's about everything - about everyday's deeds. We go to work, we do dishes, we fix the roof, take care of the kids/if any/, we walk the dog, clean the house, we cook.
A "Thank You" - is the Upvote everyone needs at least once a week.
Try telling this to the person you live with. It works. https://twitter.com/Dave82382154
