Finally contributing....

3년 전

Introverted by nature, my school reports were invariably the same - a high achieving student who would benefit from contributing more to class discussions.

So, this idea of blogging and sharing my thoughts, ideas and opinions with, potentially, the whole world, should have me sitting serenely in my chair looking on but not contributing - right? But, I’ve done enough lurking in the shadows for now. Here I am world! Still hiding, in a way, in the relative anonymity offered by the internet, but here and ready to share nonetheless - my teachers’ would be proud!

So, let’s start by summing me up - wife, mother (crunchy/attachment/gentle parenting), entrepreneur. Chocolate, books and Coca-Cola. Beatles fan - all you need is love!

Living in beautiful Melbourne, Australia - we just lost the title of World’s Most Liveable City to Vienna but, hey, we’d held that honour for a few years already so clearly it’s a pretty darn good place to live!

Here's some rainbow cookies to brighten up your day!

Not sure where this “journey” is going to take me but I know a thing or two about homemaking (recipes/tips etc), family life, respectful/gentle parenting, homeschooling/unschooling and building a better life through entrepreneurship.
Hopefully, at some point, I’ll write something that resonates with you and you’ll start to understand where I’m coming from.

Looking forward to getting to know you all,
@introvertathome

Hello introvertathome! Welcome to Steemit! Hope you'll like the community here. As a start, here are 5 tips that we believe will be helpful to you:

  1. Keep your passwords safe: Unlike conventional sites, Steemit has 4 types of passwords. Each offers varying degrees of access to your account, so know where and when to use each of them. Also, make sure to keep them all safe and secure.
  2. Get Steem rewards: When writing a post, you'll have the option to choose how to receive your reward: "Default 50%/50%" or "Power Up 100%". As of this moment, choosing Default 50%/50% is the better option. But this can change over time. Check our post to know more.
  3. Upvote wisely: When upvoting, wait at least 30 minutes after the post is published to maximize your curation reward. Also, make sure not to upvote too much too fast so as not to drain your voting power.
  4. Know your Steem, Steem Dollars and Steem Power: Steem and Steem Dollars are the 2 main currencies here. Convert and power up more Steem into Steem Power so you can have higher values on your upvotes.
  5. Have Fun and Enjoy!
