One of the great benefits of creating content on steemit is that you can get paid from others upvoting and sharing your content.

Steem Power can also be delegated to other users who can also take advantage of and earn from the voting power benefits and curation rewards once assigned.

⦁ Lease/Renting (Delegating) Steem Power

It sounds confusing as all of the earning avenues all fall under similar names but each has its own benefits and can be used to work together to increase your earning potential.
