Celebrating My Third Year Anniversary On SteemIT

6개월 전

It seems hard to believe it has been three years since I signed up on SteemIT. I guess time flies when you enjoy posting and interacting on SteemIT.

My Introduction to SteemIT

On 7 August 2016 I watched a YouTube video by The Dollar Vigilante.

I was intrigued. And learned how to signed up for a SteemIT account. Back then the easiest way was to have a Facebook account. I did not have a Facebook account and had to create one. That was the first and last time I did anything on Facebook. With my newly established Facebook account, I was able to immediately sign up for a SteemIT account and start blogging.

Humble Beginnings

Like many on SteemIT I did not immediately start earning money for every post. But I kept blog posting and slowly built a following up to what it is today.

My advice to newbies is to be consistent and persistent, it takes time to build your audience.

My First Big Payout

My first big payout was not on a post at all, but on a comment I made on another post.

This is why I always upvote meaningful comments to my blog posts.

Investing in SteemIT

After posting on SteemIT and making very modest amounts on blog posts, I started learning the mathematics and algorithms behind SteemIT. I looked into how massive amounts were being made on some blog posts. I quickly learned the value of increasing my STEEM Power.

My Introduction to Cryptocurrency

SteemIT was my introduction to the world of cryptocurrency. The fastest way to increase my STEEM Power was to buy Bitcoin then use it to power up my account.

Today you have multiple exchanges and ways to use cryptocurrency to increase your STEEM Power.

If you believe in the power of SteemIT and the STEEM blockchain to revolutionize social media and empower individuals like I do, investing in STEEM Power is a way of showing your support!

STEEM Eco-System

In the past year I have seen the STEEM economy grow by leaps and bounds. The STEEM blockchain is powering a growing number of decentralized applications that extend far the SteemIT platform. It will be interesting to see the expansion of the STEEM economy in the coming year.

Perpetual Power Down

Some may notice that my account is in a state of perpetual power down. This power down frees up a portion of my STEEM Power each week and allows me to put that STEEM to work in the STEEM economy.

Promoting STEEM

I would urge everyone to continue promoting SteemIT and the STEEM blockchain through various channels. Post your articles on Twitter and other social platforms to inform others of the opportunities provided by the STEEM blockchain and SteemIT.

Support Those Who Promote STEEM

Some of us, like myself, are not great at promotions. But within the SteemIT community there are those who excel at promotions. We can support those who advocate and promote SteemIT and the STEEM blockchain.

@stephenkendal is one who excels at great promotional ideas. Stephen has been an exceptional supporter and support of SteemIT and the STEEM blockchain. Supporting Stephen's efforts on SteemIT and on Twitter is a great way of supporting one of the great advocates in our community.

Grateful to the SteemIT Community and Developers

As SteemIT and the STEEM blockchain continue to evolve, I must say I am very grateful to the SteemIT community for their support and the SteemIT Inc. developers for continuing to improve the most rewarding social media site on the internet.

Grateful to My Followers and Supporters

Thank you to my many followers and supporters. During the next year I will continue to look for ways to reward your support.

While HF21 will change the way rewards are paid out (from 75/25 in favor of authors to a simple 50/50 reward pool split between authors and curators), this will not change my strategy of rewarding those who support my posts:

  • Use of delegated stakes to increase your rewards;
  • Being among the last of the voters to upvote my own posts.

Thank You!

Thanks for putting your STEEM to work in the STEEM economical system and supporting startups and people within the SteemIT community.

My only concern about Steem at the moment is the ridiculous price Steem has dropped to! I can't understand it.

You are a credit to Steemit!

I have seen STEEM up quite a bit and I have bought STEEM as low as $0.08.

It is a very wild ride in the cryptoworld. STEEM will find its destiny.

Have a great week!
Steem on,

Mike

I congratulate you on the three years of work at STEEM,I wish you successful deals in business and always good mood

Congratulations! I have been following you through a year almost as it's been a year only on steemit for me, long way to go!
Hope you will find more success here!

From the perspective of someone who is here a bit longer than a week, three years are impressive! Congratulations on your consistence, great content and for sure hard work put into understanding of how Steemit works.

Regarding the mathematics and algorithms behind it, I would really appreciate if you suggest me where to start to understand it. My background in those fields is not so strong, but my interest is!

·

The mathematics behind the reward system are changing with HF21. I would start by reading the STEEM Whitepaper and STEEM Bluepaper.

Then read up on HF21:
HF21: Release Tagged!
HF21 Blog Posts

There are blog posts that give you the new mathematical algorithms and there are blog posts that estimate the effects of the new algorithms in HF21.

Have a great week!
Steem on,
Mike

Actually even though I am perpetually powering down, I have been increasing my STEEM Power over time by investing in the STEEM economy. By putting my STEEM to work in the STEEM economical system I am supporting startups and people within the SteemIT community.

Have a great week!
Steem on,
Mike
