New to Steemit!

9개월 전

Hello,

My brother convinced me and helped me setup my SteemIt account. My name is Brian. I like to write and my brother thought SteemIt could be a way to supplement my income.

I live in rural southern Ohio, USA.

I look forward to contributing to the SteemIt community.

I have been on disability for 5 years and I hope that posting my stories on SteemIt will earn a bit of extra income.

This is still very new to me. It will take a bit of time for me to learn everything about the community and SteemIt.

Thank you for reading my first post!

Brian

Welcome to steemit!

Here is some information every newbie should know:

  • The value of an upvote is related to how much Steem Power the upvoter holds, as well as the current market price for the STEEM cryptocurrency coin.

  • Upvotes are not infinite, but they recharge. The more upvotes a person uses, the less it will be worth next time. On average, each person can give 10 full upvotes per day, because it's also how much upvotes recharge daily. People have to pick between many posts to decide what they're going to upvote, often choosing something they like but also taking profits into consideration. If someone doesn't upvote you, they could be waiting for their voting to recharge.

  • Your free account started with a borrowed 15 Steem Power. As you earn from your posts and comments, that will be taken away until you're standing on your own feet in the platform.

  • Remember to both give and take. If people only want to take away from the platform, the STEEM coin will eventually be worth nothing, because then everyone wants to sell while noone would be willing to buy.

  • If you run into posting limitations, that means you need more Steem Power. It's like a "bandwidth". The more you hold, the more you can do. It recharges, but slowly if you don't have much SP.

  • Steem Power can be bought, but it can also be delegated (borrowed/lent) using a steemit command. It can be undone by using a similar command too, so the delegator is in complete control.

  • You can check those bandwidth and voting metrics on the steemnow website.

  • Follow me, @felipejoys (click), if you like posts about #steemit or #gaming. I also upvote everyone who upvotes and comments my posts or give them some other prize.

I have attached a picture from the steemnow website below so you can see what it's all about. Note: I don't own the website.

Welcome to Steem, Brian! It was great of your brother to assist you with your account creation. Many on our blockchain have come to expand upon their knowledge while sharing their content and earning some sweet crypto.

There is a wealth of terrific writing initiatives on our platform, two of my favorites being Bananafish and Freewritehouse. Both of these wonderfully supportive communities have contests and writing prompts where a writer can showcase their talents as well as interact with other authors. Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

We encourage everyone to explore the various posts and to leave personal comments on those that you wish (for example - thoughts regarding the content or a sharing of a similar experience you've had). This platform thrives through interaction as it's the best way to build relationships with other Steemians while finding communities and initiatives that peak your interests.

One tip that we share with everyone is to be careful of copyright infringement when using material that is not of their original creation. Content (for example - images from a website) that grants permission for reuse is acceptable for content creators to utilize within their posts provided there is appropriate attribution to the source. Here's a link that will provide you with more information.
