SteemNest LIVE

The very first time I tried to talk about Steemit to strangers was in an outreach event that #SteemPH organized with the group Alinaga in September last year. It was an art and music session for kids with special needs, and after a whole day of fun, we were given time to speak with the parents about Steemit. We didn't really expect that and so it was an impromptu kind of speech that my partner, @steemitph, came up with. I was delighted to see that most of the parents there were really interested to find out more about what Steemit is and how it works. After some 5 minute talk about the platform, the parents approached us with a lot of questions; Is steemit in facebook? What can I post?, how do I sign-up?, how exactly do you get paid for posting?. I tried to tell them everything I knew from my limited experience at that time and capped all of my answers with instructions to visit the website. During our 2-hour drive going home that day, I told Red that maybe we should have a post that we can refer our "recruits" to. We discussed how we should print the link in a small paper and give them away during our campaigns.

The post would have to answer all possible questions.
Nah. it would be too long.
A page maybe? The page would contain all the links to posts that will be helpful to potential sign-ups and even to newbies.
Ahhhh. Now that's an idea.

4 months after that conversation, we were able to launch this account with the help of our @steemph family. One month into the platform, SteemNest already published 2 lessons after its introductory post. Our friend @arrliinn already shared these to a group of Steemians during their first Steemit meet-up in UAE. @luvabi, who spearheaded a promo-meetup at the UP Gears and Pinions Machine Design Summit yesterday, also shared SteemNest to inquiring individuals. And on February 17, SteemNest will be participating in a meet-up in Malolos, Bulacan.

Malolos Meet-Up

Like all meet-ups, the aim is to get to know existing Steemians in Bulacan but the Steemians who will attend are required to bring at least one non-Steemian, who will be introduced to the platform. That's where SteemNest comes in; we will utilize the video made by the beautiful @monkyepattycake for the introduction to Steemit (check out the video below). Most of those who have confirmed their attendance are newbies so we will also discuss topics pertinent to content creation, such as text and image formatting.

SteemPH Caravan

The meet-up in Malolos will only be the first of a series of meet-ups that we will hold in different parts of the country. The SteemPH Caravan will kick-off in Bulacan and aims to go to Pampanga, Tarlac, Pangasinan, Ilocos, Baguio and Davao in the next few months. SteemNest will participate in each one and so we have decided to purchase a projector that will be used for the presentation and lessons.
Projector Options:

Since the projector is going to be an important part of the presentation of Steemit in the upcoming meet-ups, we have decided it was best to buy a brand-new one. All of the second-hand projectors we found online no longer have warranties and we're not sure how long the lamps on those would last. We've scoured through projector reviews and got our top 3 choices:

option 1.JPG
Acer C205 Portable LED Projector at Php17,900

  • Native Resolution - FWVGA (854 x 480)
  • Brightness - up to 100 lumens
  • Aspect Ratio - 16:9
  • Contrast Ratio of 1,000:1
  • Lamp life - 20,000 hours
  • In addition, it has an HDMI port, USB port, and built-in 2W speakers.

option 2.JPG
Infocus IN112X at Php18,150

  • Resolution - SVGA (800 x 600)
  • Brightness - up to 3,200 lumens.
  • Aspect Ratio of 4:3
  • Contrast Ratio - 15000:1
  • It comes with plenty of ports like HDMI 1.4, 2x VGA, Composite video, S-Video, Stereo Out, and RS232C. It also supports 3D content.

option 3.JPG
ASUS S1 Portable Projector at Php18900

  • 41-inch projection at 1 meter
  • 200 lumens lamp.
  • has an HDMI/MHL port,
  • integrated SonicMaster speaker
  • built-in 6,000mAh battery that doubles as a power bank.

If you have other suggestions though, please feel free to comment down below the brand and model of the projector you have in mind; we will purchase the projector next weekend in time for the first meet-up. If you would like to join us in Malolos, you can find the details here. Or if you would like to be part of any of the future meet-ups, reach out to us by leaving a comment or through the SteemPH Discord Channel

I recommend steemit to two of my workmates last week. They are just both waiting for the approval so they can get starting in to this platform. Meanwhile, if I will have the chance (during break time I guess) I will share and have them read the lessons posted in SteamNest since I am not good in explaining I know reading your article will be a great help not only for the both of them but also for me to acquire more knowledge about how steemit works. Thank you for sharing the knowledge about steemit that you guys have. Indeed, You're really a big help to us! We owe you bigtime!

·

Ganon? My charm wasn't enough momi anna???
Tell bow and tiff to get on with it. 😂😂🤣

·
·

Of course your charm alone is enough tita! 😂😂😂 We owe you HUGE time for dragging us here in steemit.

I was actually going to mention @bowiemagbag here, Tita. He might have some suggestion with regards to projectors.

·

This is much appreciated @annazsarinacruz. Truly, your words inspire us to work even harder on our aim to help Steemians like you. Thank you for actively campaigning for Steemit and we hope that you and your friends enjoy your journey in this awesome platform. STEEM ON!

Danda..pamangkin ko yan!!!

·
·
·

I should have known, lola. This girl is full of sweetness! Are we meeting them in Vigan? 😀😀😀

·
·
·
·

She's the one u want for Cavite,
there's one in Vigan too🤣

·
·

I (or we, rather) will look forward to what @steemnest will share in the future! Can't wait for it! 😊😊

I believe that my friends will surely like and enjoy their stay here. They are both travellers and they have so much to brag about the places they've been! 😀😁😁

·
·
·

oooh, travel blog! That's something to look forward to! =D

·
·
·
·

So do I 😊

BTW, how long it takes to get an approval in steemit? My friends here starting to ask me about their registration. I don't remember mine to be that long before.

·
·
·
·
·

It can take some time and may vary for each account. A person I met at the SteemPH year-end party waited for 3 weeks, I had to wait for 1 week to get mine. How long have they been waiting? We discussed options in our meeting last week. We just need a few information and we'll be able to provide an alternative. Can I contact you in Discord?

·
·
·
·
·
·

Oh, one of my friend just got approved last night while the other one is still waiting 'till now. They both registered last week. I just don't remember exact day.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Sure po @steemnest, you can contact me there. My user name in discord is @zanjianna. Just joined there last week :)

Kumusta! That ASUS projector looks real nice. :)

·

thanks for the input @chinito. =)

Way to go @steemnest.❤ The family is growing rapidly and this kid of initiative just makes it easier for everybody. 😊😉

·

A huge thanks to you for sharing our content, @arrlinn! We're glad you find them helpful. We look forward to meeting your new recruits. Gosh, our family is getting bigger by the day. Go UAE team!

·

Hi Ms. @arrliinn, 😊 I don't know if you still remember me but can I ask you a question here regarding discord? 😊😊😊

·
·

Hey @annazsarinacruz sorry, I'm not sure I remember but yoi can always remind me. 😉

What questions about discord actually?

·
·
·

I noticed you have so many members in discord so I guess it's hard for you to remember me mam @arrliinn 😂

I just joined discord last week and under #registration channel I followed the procedure and have 0.001sbd transferred to @upvote.ph that same day as been told. But after transferring I got back again to that channel to verify my registration but iteems like I am not yet registered cause it keeps asking me to transfer sbd. What can I do about it? Is it a must to register first for newbies like me?

·
·
·
·

Not a must..it is if u want it to upvote your posts. That .001 is just for the bot to upvote.

·
·

I'm not bragging, I'm just that awesome.

·
·

I will help

caravan going south???? :D

·

Hi Ma'am @luvabi, we are from south! If you're planning to have an event somewhere near Dasmariñas Cavite, I would love to go and will also bring my friends over so they will have knowledge about this platform too. I will tag along with @bowiemagbag for sure! :)

·
·

oh! so you're from Cavite! Then all the more reason to schedule a meet-up there! Would you have any place you can recommend?

·
·
·

Yes po I am from Dasmariñas to be exact :) I don't know much, but how about De La Salle University - Dasmariñas ?

·
·
·
·

Other smaller venue? there was an outreach already done in La Salle Dasma last year.

·
·
·
·
·

Oh I'm surprised they've been there already Tita. I just found it out while watching ms. @monkyepattycake 's awesome video.
In that video, I also saw couple of pictures of you together with @tiffanyanne and with your growing steemit happy family and I believe @raynarojas was there too :)

I can't think of any possible venue for now Tita. But I'll tell you right away if there's any place pop up in my head :)

·

Somebody else asked us to hold it in Cavite. Why not?! That sounds fun! We'll put Cavite and perhaps Laguna in our schedule too!

·
·

yay! I can help set South up ;)

·
·

Yeeeeey! Thank you in advance :)
When do you usually schedule your event? Is it weekdays or weekends?

·
·

Why not join cavite and laguna? Syado malayo? Konti so far sa cavite.

·
·
·

I think Mam @luvabi mentioned in discord that their planning to have it somewhere in Alabang para sa mga taga Las Piñas and Laguna. (correct me if I'm wrong mam @luvabi hihihi) Mas okay na po siguro dun Tita. Malapit lapit din naman po sa Cav.

·
·
·
·

We will see.hehe. dumadami na din taga Las pinas e.

·
·
·
·
·

Congrats po mam @luvabi :) I believe mas dadami pa po yan in the near future :)

·
·

Team building capital?hehe madami venue dun.
