Lesson # 2 | Creating Content

4년 전

Hello Newbies!

We are opening our lesson for today with a video by @papa-pepper. This is actually Video #2 of a series of videos he especially made for newbies. In this particular video, he shares tips and his recommendations on how to create content. If you'd like to see more of his videos, you will easily find him in Youtube just by typing "papa-pepper".

Advise from @papa-pepper

I couldn't agree more with what he says about focusing on content. Your content will represent who you are so I recommend you put some time and effort into it. There are a lot of ways to present it, but I think we would all agree that the more details you provide, the better. Including a lot of pictures is just one way to go about it. These days, it's becoming popular to add videos too.

If all the wonderful posts you've read in the platform has pumped you into creating your own posts but don't know where to start or how to present your ideas, let me help you by pointing you to my favorite content creators. I know these steemians for their expertise in their niche and they have their own style in presenting their work.

Dogwood Mosaic Comes Alive Through the Glazing Phase by @natureofbeing

@natureofbeing is an artist specializing in all things clay and tile. She is very focused on self-mastery, which is very apparent on her posts. I found her blog after she left a comment on one of my posts and I've been a fan ever since. Her posts walk me through the process of her commissioned projects; from the very beginning where it starts with abstract notion and concepts, to the steps it took for those to take a physical form - drawing the design, cutting the detailed pieces from wet clay, glazing the tiles, and putting all the pieces together to form one awesome artwork. What I admire the most is the meticulous way she works on every single tile to perfectly fit each other -from size, to shape, to color, to feel- creating the most beautiful creations.

World’s highest and longest glass bridge didn’t scare me! by @joythewanderer

I follow @joythewanderer because of the way she takes me to places I've never been to through her blogs. It feels like sensory overload when she goes through every single detail of her experience at a certain place she visits. I swear my eyes were getting teary looking at all the photos of the dazzling mirror mosaics in Ali Ibn Hamzeh shrine in Iran; there was a also a time when I could already smell all the coffee presented in front of her when she went coffee-cupping in Europalia Arts Festival; and the first ever blog of hers that I read was when she was in Barcelona for La Merce Festival where the firework event was opened with a Bjork song and it wasn't hard to imagine how much fun she was having at the festival, where she also personally met a Steemian for the very first time. It's always like that with the way she writes; it's almost as if she wants me to be wherever she was and experience the whatever she was enjoying at that moment.

Culture

The Tenth Lunar Month Festival or Ching Pred Ceremony in Phatthalung, in the South of Thailand by @tangmo

One of my favorite topics in my own blog is the rich culture of my country. It's one of those topics that just come out naturally because I grew up living with it. I think the best thing about it is that you get to showcase your country's culture from a local's perspective. One of the blogs I frequently visit is that of @tangmo, who is absolutely brilliant in giving a tour of her beautiful country, Thailand. I got drawn to her posts because of the way she gives light to that side of Thailand underneath their breath-taking beaches. I learn a lot of Thai words too, as she is fond of translating the names of places, temples, and food that she writes about in her blogs.

In lesson #1, it was explained why it is crucial for you to engage with the community. I found these three lovely ladies because each of them left a comment to one of my posts. They engage, they go out of their own blogs and are not too busy to read someone else's story. Engagement is not only for you to find potential audience to your posts but also so you can fully enjoy what it means to be part of this community.This is just three of the thousands of gifted content creators in Steemit and if you take the time to marvel at other people's work instead of looking at the votes you got, you just might realize how much this platform can offer; true growth that's beyond cryptos and fiat.

I've learned a lot, but i have two take aways.

First - Do not compromise your quality over quantity (do not post multiple articles if they are low quality)

Second - Be professional
