Hello Steemit! - Coinmarketcap.com Introduced Me!

in almost-famous •  4 months ago

2nd Intro - This post is a template people can follow for their own introduction post. It's easy to copy and I plan on rewarding some of those who are following it to some degree.

Share it with your friends who haven't joined yet. I will. (The template begins a couple paragraph below.)

Shout out to @papa-pepper for this awesome shirt!

Boosting Steem's Growth!

I want to accelerate Steem's growth, thus rewarding the best introduction posts and making it easier for people to create them is a no-brainer.

I've already began to give more than one 100% vote a day to the best introduction post I can find and also many smaller votes. (My full vote at 100% is currently worth around 80$.)

I will reward what I think are the best posts whether people follow my post's formula or not. Any formula will do as long as what is written is good.

Steem popularity is already skyrocketing for obvious reasons and we should clearly do everything we can to boost it even more.

This is only one part of boosting Steem growth. I'm currently working on other ideas and everyone is welcome to join me.

Making Steem Go Viral!

29 Days, 13 Days, 3 Days Ago & Today

I've seen many people asking successful Steemians what they should do to create successful posts. Make Steem go viral and I can assure you success.

It doesn't have to be super viral either. We just want to see some Steem growth. Make some positive outreach and people will reward you, just like anywhere else.

It always helps to keep growth in mind when doing anything for any community.

The Title

Let's begin with the title. The title: "Hello Steemit" could be replace by anything more creative.

Adding who or what site introduce you to Steem in your title or sub-title can be a good way to grab people's attention.

If a Steemian introduced you to Steem, then you should most probably mention them prominently.

Coinmarketcap.com introduced me to Steemit. I used to visit that website everyday and watch for the new cryptocurrencies pop up. (List 900+ cryptocurrencies, very slow/huge website.)

Examples:

  • Yo Steemit! - Google.com Introduced Me!
  • Bonjour Steemit! - @fyrstikken Introduced Me!
  • Holla Steemit! - A Friend Introduced Me!

The Sub-Title

Just like the title, use the sub-title to grab people's attention. We click only on the best titles, sub-titles and thumbnail pictures.

Mention if it's your first or second introduction post or even better your first post.

Steem is giving birth to a culture of friendly competition pushing creativity to level individual mind can't even foresee yet.

Join now!

The Tag: Introduceyourself

Use the tag #introduceyourself. A more creative first tag which will be displayed more prominently can be used but #introduceyourself should be in the tags.

Take a look at what is trending in this tag and try to do better.

The Main Picture

The first picture is your thumbnail picture. Use Resizeimage.net to easily resize your image to 800 x 450 so that the thumbnail isn't cropped out in a weird way. Keep the aspect ratio and toggle down until the second number reach as close as possible to 450.

The more interesting your picture the better obviously. (I could have done better with mine, that's for sure.)

What Picture Should You Use

I highly recommend the first picture to be of yourself holding a sign, electronic device or anything which mention Steem but any interesting picture can do.

The reason for the sign is to avoid impersonification. The sign doesn't make impersonification impossible but makes it a bit less obvious.

That being said, the vast majority of the introduction posts I look at and vote for have this verification picture as their thumbnail. It make it super easy to avoid losing time on posts that didn't even make this simple effort.

There's already so many introduction posts. It's impossible to look at them all and so everything helping to get yourself more views is worth trying.

The Main Body Of Your Post

If you're well-known in the cryptocurrency space then it make sense to mention it in the title. This holds true for any known personality. The more celeb someone is the more thorough their verification process should be.

Some people have posted on their other social media mentioning they joined Steemit. This is again to avoid impersonification and also serve as outreach. Many different pictures holding a Steemit sign can possibly be enough as a solid verification.

Celebrities Joining Steem!

We shouldn't necessarily expect huge celebrity to join Steemit so early. A lot of Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, users have more followers than there are Steemians. It might be more logical for these people to wait for Steemit to become bigger before joining.

There are currently around 250,000 Steem accounts. Yet some Youtubers with more than 1 million subscribers are already on Steem. Still, because Steem is so young, there's a very real opportunity for everyone to become a future Steem Star if such a thing should ever exist.

Use A Markdown Editor

Some people have lost their post due to some bug. To avoid this, use a Markdown editor to create your posts and save regularly. I use Markdown Pad's free version. It's very easy to use and will save you time as well as make your post and comments look better.

Mention Why You're Here

Why you're here on Steemit is probably one of the first thing you might want to mention. Whether it's because you've stumble on Steemit randomly and were intrigue or whether you have a more definite plan.

My Introduction Post Begins Here

My name is Guillaume Cardinal.

I use Steem as a leverage to become a better person, to maximize my life's enjoyment and hopefully everyone's life enjoyment. I've already wrote about it extensively here on Steem.

More About Me

I used to run everyday between 10-18k on average. I resumed running 4 days ago. I won Montreal 2016 half-marathon in my age category. I finished 14th overall. Most of my results of the last 8 years can be seen here. I had stopped for 2 months because of injuries and also because I wanted to concentrate on Steem.

Around 2 weeks ago I quit my job I used to work to for more than 10 years. I did so because my crypto investments will allow me to live off of them for some time and that's what I felt like doing. I have a lot of things I want to share but we never know what life reserves us.

Seize the moment and Steem on!

Another brilliant post. I wish I would have had these tips when I did my introduceyourselfpost.

Thank you for the Markdown pad link. I'm downloading it now. This is exactly what I've been needing.

·

Awesome! I'm glad to see people love the markdown recommendation. I waited quite a long time before recommending it. I knew it would help people but for some reasons I would forget to put it there.

Steem on @sneakgeekz!

·
·

Yes thank you very much for the share. Im having a little issue with drivers which I'm updating now.

·
·

oh just joined steemit, does that mean I should/can do a introduceyourselfpost?

·
·
·

Yeah sure! If you feel like doing it then do it.

·

One of the problems I see, is that steemit is based around all these cryptodork (no offense) formulas for conversion and transactions and percentages... do we really think the average joe beerface and babbling betty are going to be down with econocryptonumerology ?? peace

·
·

@clumsysilverdad you hit the nail on the head. This has been the biggest obstacle to crypto adoption. Today the crypto space is internet 1994, pre email, pre browsers. In 94 the internet was just used by the military and researchers.

Until crypto becomes as easy as visiting a web site and MORE convenient than credit cards the average joe will have no use for it. The most valuable resource on the planet is time.

In my opinion when the moment comes that crypto can save people time that's when we will see massive adoption. I fully expect it to happen but we are still way too early in the curve.

Steemit has made some great progress in addressing this problem and allows the average person to start interacting with crypto fairly quickly. I agree we still need to make it easier.

·
·
·

cool, upvoted, ty

·
·

FB is EASY. Steemit is confusing, clunky, and not easy.

Curious to see what happens with it the next year or two.

But damn, how much do I have to invest in steem power to have my upvote be $.10-$1? That's not a casual investment, I don't see many people doing that for fun. (Again, fails on the 'easy' scale which is necessary for mass adoption.)

·

Crazy how this is broken down to such granular levels... feel there are many parallels in strategies for Tinder

·

You have got excellent instructions. It is a pity, that I've already written my first post-introduction

·

I'm agree with @sneakgeekz excellent comment, but I'm really New, I can do my second part of my introduceyorselfpost with @teamsteem tips. I'm so grateful for you support .

Why Choose CCBM

An overnight success ten years in the making, CryptoCurrency is as transformative as it is evolutionary. At last, 2017 is expected to be the year that CryptoCurrency goes mainstream for business. In speaking with many executives and entrepreneurs, we've noticed that the path towards CryptoCurrency enlightenment often hinges on corporate culture and specific marketplace conditions. Full CryptoCurrency integration often happens in stages, it's an evolutionary process for companies and consumers alike.

We realize there is a great deal of options on the internet these days with all the different CryptoCurrency networks. We offer information about the latest happenings with CryptoCurrency on these networks and we even sometimes throw out some goodies here and there.

I've still never done a really proper Introduction Post LOL -- but a couple with some personal stuff in starting a few mths back.

I saw you told me here in this post that pizza is not a fruit but with a tomato base in the sauce, they are actually classified as a fruit and that is good enough for me LOL

·

I thought I had removed that part. Haha! That was funny! I'm glad I left it there!

·
·

the best ever introduction seen around :-)

·
·
·

Aw! That's very kind!

·
·

The comments on the pizza replies here are spot on buddy LOL, it was a hit.

·

I agree with you Barry LOL
Pizza is all the food groups! No doubt about it :)

·
·

I tell everyone it is a balanced food group!!!!!

·
·
·

As you should, pizza is the world's most perfect food, PERIOD. :)

·

Came here to say this! I grow tomatoes, onions, garlic, and basil so basically pizza, therefore tomatoes=pizza=fruit!

·
·

That's what I'm talkin about right there!

·

Hi, newbie here and Mac user. Anything like markdown pad for Mac? Great article by the way, I'll get started on my introduce me asap.

·
·

Welcome to Steemit, I can see you are new!!!

If you visit a post on here by my friend @teamsteem -- venture towards the bottom of any of his posts --- he discusses some of what he uses for things like Markdown Pad, etc etc.

The bottom 1/4 of his post are laid out really nicely in a template for all kinds of quick advice like this.

He is also one of the best writers on here.

·
·

I'm pretty sure there is. Just google markdown editor for mac and I'm sure you'll find more than one. I know haroopad and I think there might be a mac version of this one.

This was just beast... I'll share it with my team of 500+ peeps on FB, thanks @teamsteem! 💪🏼🙌🏼💯

·

Thank you @stackin! That's the kind of outreach I'm talking about!

·
·

Appresh, I think I brought over 500 people alone so far, I need higher goals... 1000 by this month. keep posting that value bossman.. .. following your lead :)

·
·
·

Dang. I need some catching to do. I have some idea. I can't achieve this outreach directly but I'll try to contact some people that could reach out to some large audience and succeed in making them take actions.

·
·
·
·

some guys are just taking the offline marketing approach.

it's a new project around and they are currently working on the flyers design

You also have to be dancing in your introduction video...Im so used to seeing @teamsteem dancing.

·

You're right. I need to be more efficient at crafting these. I will.

Hi !
This is an automatic message.
According to SteemData, you have now used #introduceyourself 5 times.

You might not be aware of this, but #introduceyourself is mainly used by new accounts, to introduce themselves once. Please consider other, appropriate tags.

·

LMAO Best Bot EVER!

·

You actually are a good bot.

·
·

How are we going to establish tag-discipline, when you as a witness abuse this tag ?

·
·
·

Sorry if you think this is abuse. I chose this tag to help people see my post.

I have ideas about curtailing abuse. My post wasn't abuse.

·
·
·
·

Seems people are posting their 50 follower celebration and 100 follower notice on introduceyourself, it seems like that's the new norm (I mean, I just got here, but just sayin') peace

·
·
·
·
·

It's okay for now. We're letting it fly. I thought about a fix for this. I might try to implement it soon or not, we'll see.

·
·
·
·

It's miscategorized content, that's what it is.

·
·
·
·
·

You're right in a sense. I know what you mean. There are already so many miscategorized posts in that tag that doesn't help the tag, I felt like mine which I felt help people using this tag had more benefits than bad repercussion.

It's true that this tag should be moderated but it's not at this point. I'm thinking about solutions but at this point I'm working on some other projects I think will bring more positives at a faster rate.

·
·
·
·
·
·

We're all working on other projects ...

For starters, you could just remove the tag to be a good example.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

You're right we're all working on other projects.

But my point is that I felt like there are more benefits to it being there than there are negatives.

Coinma ketcap.com in the Title of this post? Did you do that on purpose?

·

Damn. Nope. I'll fix this. Thanks!

Great format, so much info I didnt know about you before. Coinmarketcap got me onto here also! Came cause the coin, stayed for the people!! All of those are my favorite comedians pretty much spot on, you missed Bo Burnham though.. I mostly read fiction but the art of war is great. I reccomend Bastiats The Law, its a great nonfiction book, old enough its free too! 4 of my favorite shorts, and most of the documentaries I haven't seen. Added to my watch list! A million thanks for all you do for Steemit @teamsteem! You are appreciated!

·

I knew some people would have come from coinmarketcap.com!

I heard about Bo Burnham but never listen to him before.

I'll take a look at The Law. It seems like an interesting book.

What are your 4 favorites shorts from the lot?

And thank you for the @randowhale vote!

·
·

The great dictator speech is in my mind really the greatest speech ever!

Terence McKenna, I'm excited to see one of your favorite comedians (Jim Carrey) play him. I heard he has been out doing hallucinogens getting ready for the part.

Michio Kaku's video.. I don't always agree with him but hes interesting to hear from regardless. And this is one of his better pieces..

And the earthship 101 video, I helped my friend build a bit of their earthship and I really want my own one day! Are you building one or is it a dream of yours too?!

Some short I like that you missed is Rodney Mullens beautiful Mind , Marvin Minsky on health and the human mind, Carl Sagans best speech about humanity.. Theres many more, but those are the ones that come to mind quickly

·
·
·

Wut! Jim Carrey as Terence! That seems way too awesome! I had to google it. Seems true! Wow!

I too don't necessarily agree with Kaku that much but his series physics of the impossible had some great episode and he also have some other great talk.

Wow! I would have love to build an Earthship. They must be the most sane place to habit. Everything from them is design in perfect harmony with nature. They can even create island of vegetation in very arid climate. I'd sure love to habit one and even more so own one.

I've seen a great that from Mullens surprisingly it wasn't the one you mentioned so I'll give it a chance.

I just listened to Carl Sagan's speech and I think I watched it before.

And I'll give Marvin's video a watch too.

Thank you for sharing all of these!

·
·
·
·

No problem, good to know we have many things in common! If ever you come across an awesome video I need to see, don't be afraid to share it or steemitchat message me it!! and I will try to talk my friends into posting about their earthship build!! They should be on Steemit anyways, they are awesome people. Thanks for all you do, good talking!

·
·
·
·
·

Maybe you should try the 30 minutes intro about the Meru foundation. It's very different than the short inspirational one but I still think everyone should try this one. I'll go deeper into this in a future blog.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I will definitely check it out! And I look forward to the future blog. I will know more about it by the time you make your post! Once again, thanks for all you do!

Funny dog picture! woof woof

I will shear my story and my moto and my expirence with the community. @naseerbhat
Thanks and have a nice day

Well I joined and wrote my intro on my birthday 28th of June , wish I could see ir post before that . But its really helpful and deserves to be resteemed to help others too.

Thanks @teamsteem
Not ur first good posts
Keep it up 👍🏻👍🏻

If someone whom i am introducung to steemit right now should ask me "so what is steemit in a nutshell?". My answer now would be it is am community that draws out your fullest potentail to ensure a greater life for you and your family and it's also a community of some of the greatest personalities online who are at a mentorship level to train you how to interact, prove your worth, find a purpose and teach you how to give with a deeper sense of satisfaction. Steemit that's for i feel now a days when i talk about it. I really want to run a huge champain in my country because more youngsters needs to be involved in something like this. Great post by the way. I like how deep it goes. image

Welcome to Steemit!

Thanks for this post, it really helped me get started with my intro post once I had the structure in place :)

Bonsoir @teamsteem.
j'ai apprecié ce post.
C'est bien detaillé et bien defini pour un introduceyourself.
je tiens a vous suivre car vouz avez donné le meilleur de vous-même.

thanks. This will help.

Hello,
Nice advices... I would have liked read this before start here but yeah... we are learning everyday of our life. Thank you for the share.

wow, that's a cool details way of introductions!!!! likes it!! so, i can talk with you at least about "cowspicary" :)

thanks for the inspirations

U5dr1AAE7vmHsVPGx7BvZegktRyQBgg_1680x8400.jpg

Thank you for this post! I have just joined today and will be doing an introduction post here in the next day or so. I want to do something fun and creative. Thanks again for sharing your experience with us an welcome to Steemit!

Dear @teamsteem, after reading your post I am now faced with an awful dillema. I joined yesterday and made my first introduction post.

Your helpful tips make me want to craft a new introduction post that really excels, since it led immediately to new and fresh ideas about what I truly want my introduction to look like.

Should I delete my account and start over?

·

You should definitely keep your post! - It's really great. Just like teamsteem said, you could do another one later on, when you've gained some traction and when you've built yourself a decent following. - However, I wouldn't use the "introducemyself" tag at that point, but you could easily use "introduction" for instance.

"introduceyourself" posts are often rewarded rather good compared to other posts on a regular basis and if you publish multiple post using that tag, you risk being flagged and that will not only affect your potential rewards, it will also hurt your reputation.

Just some friendly advice :)

·
·

Thanks for the friendly advice, it's really appreciated. I won't be re-introducing myself, but rather focus on doing whatever I can to help fueling the Steem train. Blogging will be a continuous improving thing for me, but I certainly can tell many friends about this amazing platform and community.

·

really nice post..I really motivated and than you so much

·

Well no! Are you kidding! You're post made so great. Plus it look good. I love your post.

You can do another introduction post later or just another one. I'd wait though.

Don't post to make money. Post to make yourself happy first then maybe money will come. I know you haven't mentioned money but I felt like mentioning it.

I don't exactly know what to advice but clearly don't create another account. That's a no-brainer.

·
·

Ok, I have thought about it. But only for 2 seconds, and yes you are completely right, I will stick with my account as is. What maybe a no-brainer for you was something real for me to consider. Then again, I'm still trying to get the feel of this platform and I'm thinking on how to contribute meaningfully.

What I have decided for now, is that I will not be going to aim for upvotes or fame at this moment. I will simply blog the best I can, read and re-edit, improve, cut and have it checked by one of my friends before posting. Just focus on making the best content I can and improve at every step.

Also, I'm telling other people here in The Netherlands about this community. That'll be my primary way to help this platform grow and blossom with rich content. I'm a firm believer in a fantastic future for Steemit and will contribute in any way I can, even although I' m not a developer.

·

I would delete and re-do
LMAN.GIF

·
·

Hi @lanceman, you're just kidding right?

·
·
·

My apologies @fuzztone, I meant delete the orig. post and re-do that, not delete your whole account!

·
·
·
·

Don't you think that might be a little unfair to the people that have already upvoted it?

·
·
·
·

Oh, if you have several upvotes and don't want to affect that leave it. It's not unreasonable to create a secondary intro post (have seen it done many times). No one should bother you about that, just explain that now that you have learned some tips and tricks you want to provide a more thorough directive on your initiatives. You can come at it from a specific angle such as a favorite hobby or topic (sport, cooking, photography, etc). Use the tags 'introduceyourself' and 'introducemyself' - also 'verified' if you are able to post a selfie with Steemit sign, date and your username on it. I never took advantage of those tips and probably missed out on a lot of follows. But no worries and creating a second one, it makes good sense and people understand

Nice helpful post! I wish I would have seen this before I wrote my intro. I received a whole 10 votes. I was so excited to get my account that I just said "Hi everyone"! @fauxden you need to check this out!

I wish I read this before posting my introduction!

@teamsteem you and @jerrybanfield are my new idols! You guys work so passionate about the things you do and work on! Thank you for putting all these amazing posts!

·

That feel really good to read. Thank you for sharing! Steem on my friend! I mean it!

Thank you for this post! I am so grateful that I was able to find it BEFORE I penned my Introductory post. Excellent resource!

Hey brother, @teamsteem can you check out my introduction that I made 2 days ago? I wish I had seen this article before I introduced my self :)

·

That was a really nice post! I enjoyed reading it!

Very well put together. I resteemed this. It's a must read for all.

You have got excellent instructions. It is a pity, that I've already written my first post-introduction

Is the dog there for sale? haha @teamsteem good one indeed. I cited you on my latest blog post about trading platform-pls feel free to see it.
Thanks for all your help.

Good stuff! Thanks for the info.

I know. Steem is making a splash. Still under the radar of most but not for too long.

good outline and i should redo my introduction in a proper format - thanks for the lead and i want to see steemit go viral too

Your post was the first post I read after becoming a minnow. You had me at your first paragraph; five paragraphs later, I wanted to sit down to chat with you. I was already going to join Steemit, but now it feels as if I've found my tribe! More than just conveying information concisely and well, you manage to bring across the spirit of the enterprise. Thanks.

This is really great advice, I wish I would've seen this post before I did my introduction post.

I joined yesterday and wrote my introduction post almost immediately after. Judging by your other posts and your views on life (that I sorta picked up from them), I think you might actually like it: "The unexamined life is not worth living." - Hello Steemit!

Either way, although I've only been here shortly, I can really sense that you bring a strong and positive vibe to this whole community. Keep it up!

What an excellent template. Just resteemed it to my thousand followers. Steem on!!

Thanks much for this helpful post, i never get to do a proper introduction so i might do it again,, my account is still young

lol that makes me wanna go introduce myself one more time :)

I will use this in my intro... by the way I am missing your dance from last post..

Very long and detailed. Very good work.

Nice post. Great job👏

you gave a wonderful insight on how to make a steemit introductory post thanks for the information @teamsteem

It's funny, I'm pumping up other people to do the #introduceyourself. I guess I should do one too, lol!!!

I am glad that someones put up a good template for what we should say on the #introduceyourself.

Thanks for promoting steem and steemit

Yo! Putin's approval! I can't believed I overseen this. I wonder how Putin will police Steem.

;)

Let me just "Putin my glasses" and check that for you, sir! :)

This post explains it all. I will definitely play a role in spreading the word about steemit let's build the market value.

@teamsteem, I have a friend with a massive facebook and youtube following joining up either this weekend or Monday. He asked me the best time to post. Can you advise? Your post couldn't have been timed better. I am sending to him now.

Contact me in private on Facebook or on the official Steemit chat.

Thanks! I reached out on Steemit chat.

Hey man, this is awesome! Definitely should be a part of some sort of "intro to Steem" tutorial if one existed (in fact that is the aim of something I have been thinking about recently).

Cheers and Steem on!

This is huge for those just starting out as Steemers. Thanks

Thank you so much for this super helpful post, Guillaume! I wish I'd seen it before I posted my introduction so that my main picture wouldn't be cropped so weirdly on the thumbnail version ;-) I will now follow your lead and click on some those links to learn more, merci!!

Thank you for this informations 🔝

Woowww this is really very interesting with post I really like what you post because it is very useful for others and also for me it is amazing that good luck always for you and get more achievement with what you hope actually i also get kesuksan achievement in Esteem as if you want to help me to share and upvote I really I am very happy to survive and success is always for you

Great advice on introductions... I think both of my friends that I got signed up on Steem failed to introduce themselves, and they ended up going idle. Maybe I can use this post to get them to give it another try.

Thank you! You're leading the way as always.

That's a great formula ! It's so kind of you to seek good introduction posts to give them a big upvote !

well done you are genius.
Please follow me @patricksanlin and upvote. Thanks

I've resteamed so I can reread this in future as I'm not sure if pictures can be added month's after the initial posting I'm following for two reason the help and your a fellow Canadian :D thanks for sharing

I've never introduced myself before on steemit, thanks for this guide it's very helpful

Great @teamsteem Steemit is doing well. Keep posting that Alexa score. Thanks

This is what I'm using for my introductory post that I keep putting off. I want to make sure I get it right with the proof picture and everything else you talked about. I'm beginning to enjoy your posts. Came across your dance video recently and that was so funny (in a good way). Thanks for the great tips. :)

Great idea! I'll try to get this up onto the "Quick Start Guide" page in the next round of updates.

·

I think that could really help new comers. That's a pretty good initiative. I love it Tim!

Man it is awesome that you are patrolling the introduction posts. If we all look at a niche like that we can make sure that a ton of new people get noticed and stick around.

Props. Mad props.

Great post which will help newbies. Good luck to everyone.

No comments, great post, I wanted to read before doing my #introduceyourself, this would be a perfect model, you really have the profile of the leader! Congratulations on the content!

This is fantastic!!!! Lovin the dog, I am still bustin up :) For some reason, that just makes me laugh. Your goin places kid - Im still a nobody trying to be a somebody and you are already there!!!!! Cheers to GREAT success!! And oh yea, money :) (CHEEZZZZZEEEEEE)

Make Steem go viral and I can assure you success

I have not thought about this. But this is a great idea. Hmmm i'm actually going to give it a go. As always, great post!

This post explains it all thank you

you are my idol , very fantastic post !follow

Great introduction!!!

This post is of great help to me and all new to steemit

thank you very much

Thanks for the layout. I really do appreciate it and stay tuned to my first post to Introduce myself!

Great job assisting the newbs- I think it's awesome how 'introduce myself' posts can get so many upvotes- I bet some think 'wow this was sooooooo easy'- then they post their second post and it awards them a portion of $.03- lol - life is funny that way. Nose to the grindstone- persistency and sincerity pays.

Wonderful post, I wish I'd seen it before my rather rambling self introduction, and subsequent redo with the correct photo ala sign, Merci, et bon nuit.

What an awesome post. I wish I had a template like this to go off of when I first joined Steemit over a year ago! My introduction post was a disaster lol. I wonder if it is too late to go back and try again the right way?

·

I really do think so. After more than 1 year and also 1 year ago Steem was really different and there wasn't much reason to put so much time into an introduction post back then.

There's so many new people.

I'd just make sure to mention it's your 2nd introduction post in the sub-title. I feel like it's more honest.

Hey @teamsteem, thank you so much for including my introduceyourself post in one of the six you upvoted and shared!

It's a pleasant surprise to have my first post be so well received. I'm very grateful. Looking forward to becoming a part of this community.

·

Hey I' glad to see you comment here Matt!

excelente post siga asi, espero que pase por el mio votando y comentado para ayudarnos suerte siga asi

A great post I read it and earned lots of tips, every new person must read it once before they write their introduce yourself post as this will give them lots of valuable tips and tricks to begin, thank you for the markdown pad link I have never heard or used it before ,I will try now. Thanks for sharing the information.

I wish that I was read something like this before start posting. Person gets only one chance for forst impression and I could be better. :)

·

Like I just said below, take this opportunity to think about ways to make Steem go viral, there's even more to get from doing it than re-introducing yourself.

·
·

Yes, I think to look your other posts, too. Good luck :)

Downloading it now, thanks alot for the link.

wow thats quite a thought

Great post! I'm still trying to figure out how I can make my posts reach as many people as possible! Brand new to blogging so I have a lot to learn. Thanks for the post, easy to understand with excellent formatting.

@teamsteem, You have got excellent instructions. It is a pity, that I've already written my first post-introduction :(

It's okay. Take this opportunity to think about ways to make Steem go viral. There's even more to get from do it than re-introducing yourself.

Hmmmm. I'm think about it=))

Hi " teamsteam " Welcome to Steemit.
I can Follow You.
You can follow me.Thnx

Hi @muhmmadjamshed - teamsteem isn't a new user. Quite the contrary, actually. We don't do the whole "follow for follow" thing here. This isn't fb. Write good quality, original content, and work hard to develop your craft, and the followers will come. If everybody followed everybody else, what would be the point of that?

Thanks for the education. I really love it.

Great Work :- ) ...! Teamseem rock the steem world..

Nice initiative!

·

Thank you @acidyo! I'm glad you liked it and took the time to comment!

New follower, I am so glad I found you page and this post! More treasure for my feed thanks so much esteeming to the rest of the new peeps that follow my post.

You make the best guides for newbies! I wish I've know these tips when i was starting a month ago. Newbies today doesn't know how easy they have it. Thank you as always @teamsteem <3 And congratulations to your new job.
