Im fairly new my self . Here is what I found after digging and searching around..
1st- I did not make any of these short cuts , Long term steem members took it upon themselves to make these tutorials.
PHONE APP - Bothered me from day one , Took me weeks to find out there is one and it works pretty well ..
Go to app store and its free ,, Here is a link to a good review by @good-karma . He really shows you how to use it and I like it a lot --https://steemit.com/esteem-features/@good-karma/esteem-feature-set-1-login-quick-look
2nd- Big one - Loading pictures on to your posts .. Took me a while to figure this one out .. Then I found this tutorial courtesy of @billbutler . He really gives the best tutorial in my opinion .. Here is the link .
3rd -- Buying steem so you can gain power to up vote your peers and so they will follow you as well .. There are a few different options now ,, You can go to block trades and open an account on the spot and buy through there guidance,but I'll assume you are here on steem all ready .. Here is a great tutorial from @mrslauren that guides you step by step ..
4th-Looking for a tag and cant find it .. Here is a tutorial from @alphacore that makes it really easy..
5th - List of general rules to keep in mind so you don't get in hot water.. I just saw this today and had no idea about some of these rules .. courtesy of , @mrgrey
Finally -- Browse around , Read posts to get Idea's, Leave comments to get feed back , And that little magnifying glass on top between the word (promoted) and the word ( search) is your friend , click on it and type any question in there and some one from this community usually all ready posted the answer for you .
CREDIT FOR THESE TUTORIALS AND I AM THANK FULL FOR THEM ARE TYPED BELOW AND ALL THERE LINKS ARE ATTACHED.
Look them up and reply to there posts and maybe ask them questions .. I am certain they would be helpful .
Hope to see you in the blogs and I hope this post helps some one .. jkenny KEEP STEEMING
