What a memorable friday it was here in the small yet busy village of San Antonio, Makati, Philippines. It was a brief yet a very meaningful presentation just to give the new Steemians a gist what STEEMIT is about. We are maybe few in numbers, but with the simple talents and @teardrops they can offer, i see a lot of potential that will benefit the platform and make steemit an enjoyable place to stay. Just imagine these new members as babies which needs a lot of support, guidance, & especially LOVE, lots of LOVE.
Philippians 4:6 "In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God"
Always start everything with prayer, as prayer leads us to the right path, gives us a clearer vision on things to do, and brings us to an intimate fellowship with Christ.
I have been sharing to them what steemit is about for like 5 months now, circa 3rd quarter of 2017. They have some idea what is steemit (caused by my nonstop storytelling about my experience here. XD) but they need a formal introduction about the ins and outs and the basic information on how the platform works. So we cut to the chase and was straightforward as possible, POST YOUR BLOG, EARN, IT'S THAT SIMPLE.
NEED I SAY MORE? :)
Also gave them quick and easy tips what to do as they start their journey on their Steemit life.
- Don't lose your password. Just don't.
- Copypasta is discouraged. No to spam. Yes, we are not talking about food.
- Proper tagging, max of 5.
- Just enjoy and have fun! ;)
They may sound weird but these are the real deal and encompasses most of the essentials in the platform. Succinct and straight to the point. I also made a group chat in another platform so that they could easily get in touch with me. I am willing to help and answer any queries to the best of my knowledge, all for the growth of Steemit community. :)
Just want to give a shout out to the most creative and imaginative minds at @sndbox for letting me share an image from their very informative post about How Much is Your Post Worth? A Steemit Rewards Guide. Rather than creating confusion explaining it, the image said it all, no mess, no fuss. :D
I also presented them the Steemit interface and explained some details on it. Also shared to them alternative platforms aside from the blogging style we tend to do.
Different strokes for different folks!
- Trending, New, Hot, Promoted Posts.
- Overview of the Steemit Wallet.
- Basic tips on enhancing their posts.
- Steepshot for photography lovers, by @steepshot.
- Dtube for those who are inclined on videos & videographers, by @dtube.
- Dmania for the meme guys and gals like me! ;) by @dmania.
- Dlive mainly for livestreamers and vloggers, by @dlive.
Awesome New Steemians from the Philippines! ^u^

What i love in Steemit is that there is no individualism here. We are here because we all need each other. All of us should support each and every one, whether you are a minnow like me or a whale like them, because it's such a wonderful feeling to encourage and uplift our fellow steemians and enjoy what they have shared to the community. We need not be too technical or aiming for high upvotes, what is important is the YOU, the person behind the username.
Just to coin what @surpassinggoogle has said:
with Teardrops; aim is to mine the human a bit more! - The Teardrops Smart Media Token
And i also want to share these inspiring words from @papa-pepper:
As so many of us have been blown away by the community here on steemit, I think that we've only just begun. Time and time again hopeless and desperate situations have disappeared, and the hopeless and hurting have been healed. Of course not every story has a happy ending, but we are working on it! - Proof of Tears post
So don't be afraid to let those exquisite @teardrops fall!

Praise the Lord! ^u^
Keep on Steemin'!
