My Experience on Steemit after 6 months as a Blogger

in dtube •  9 days ago


Hi in this video, I share my experience as a Blogger using the platform Steemit.

I was lucky to get involved near the start and to meet some amazing people from there.

I also went to Steemfest 2 to met some of the gang, which was a blast!

So, in my experience, I would say :

  1. Take your time blogging. It's better to have few quality posts then a load of posts that you rushed.
  2. Like any social network, make friends on there and have fun.
  3. Blog to help people or to entertain people, not to make money. If your stuff is high quality and you're consistently posting, the money will come in the end, but it shouldn't be the end goal!

I hope you like this video and please post your comments below.

Cheers,
Tomas,

Rewards Pool Farmer Alert

@Steemcleaners, check out the comments section of @ryacha21 above. (https://steemit.com/@ryacha21/comments)

He is leasing 30k SP from @minnowbooster then using that to VOTE Up his own 7 Day old comments on random posts at the last minute. Scroll his comments to around the 6 day mark or just go to https://steemd.com/@ryacha21; he has a lot of self love on his own old comments.

HE IS DOING IT OVER AND OVER AND OVER.. He is farming the pool.. If you could help it would be appreciated..

Learn more about this sack of monkey spunk here:

https://steemit.com/shitpost/@pawsdog/the-shit-post-diaries-1-17-18-4

Also kinda a dick move to use the actual good post of another person to post a comment for no other reason to come back and farm it later.

Post Author, I do apologize.. This dude makes no actual articles of his own so the only way to draw attention to what he is doing is to comment his comments. My sincerest apologies for cluttering up your blog, outing the abusive self voting behavior of @ryacha21

Really insightful post. You have done a lot of stuff in this community in such a short amount of time! I hope to follow in your footsteps fellow steemian. Thanks for this post!

·

Yeah!! Need to learn more how to create a better quality content, so excited about this steemit community.

·
·

Nice, I advice blogging about stuff you enjoy and that you're good at too.
For creating videos, I recommended spending as much time looking at microphones and audio as at looking at camera and video. Audio is super important and a lot of people do often forgot that.

·

Thank you, I'm glad you found this video insightful!

Yeah, I've basically just created a load of posts about stuff I know about and I'm also part of the Promo-UK Steem team.
I forgot to mention that I also went to Steem Fest 2 in 2017 which was a blast and a few of my friends are also on Steemit, which helps!

Hi tomasgeorge thank for the video please always vote for me.

·


I'm new on steemit,follow and upvote me,and I return that back..Thanks

·

Hey, can you follow me back!! :)

Great post. There are many people taking all kinds of shortcuts just trying to get their posts noticed (and upvoted). Slow, steady, and quality wins the race.

Thank you for your points. I agree with you.You are right, you have to be consistent and post good quality content otherwise you will lose your attraction.
Being a new user, these things gonna help me a lot.

·

Thank you, I'm glad you like my video.
Yes, I just hope everyone creates high-quality content, then the platform would have some more great value to offer a lot of readers and investors.

these one is quite interesting

It's great to hear your experience in Steemit as when i first joined Steemit, I wanted to make as much friends as possible and engage with them as different people have different interest and it is fun to read and learn from different kind of people's post. I got to learn a lot of stuff that I didn't even know.

I wish you all the best! @tomasgeorge

·

I've been studying steemie for at least 10 hours a day for a week, it's so good :)
But very few friends

·
·

That's very good.. the amount of time you put in Steemit will definitely payoff!
I wish you all the very best! @stewardessa

Will be looking forward to your upcoming post
Goodluck! :)

·
·
·

Make friends by commenting! I read that at least 20 - 50 (if you can handle 50 lol) comments per day is ideal!

·
·
·
·

its a great idea to interact with new people by commenting on their post.im on my way to 100 comments /day

·
·
·
·
·

It is true, when someone comments on your post you usually always click their profile and peek around lol

·
·
·
·
·
·

lol i do it whole day.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

My target is a million comments a day.

·
·
·
·

may be :)

·
·

Yeah it can take a bit of time. I'd say just post about what you enjoy doing and the followers will come. However, give it a bit longer than a week though.

·

Nice, thank you! Yes, it's a really fun platform :)

I wish it was that easy for those without a massive following

·

Nice one @tomasgeorge
You are actually saying the truth.

·
·

Thank you, I'm glad you like this video!
Yeah, I wanted to say my honest opinion and not to pretend I'm any kind of crypto expert, which I'm not haha.

·

cool tomas! thanks for sharing! I think you spoke in a very authentic manner. Like the style of your video! Much more calm and just like you would talk normally!

·
·

Nice, thank you. I wasn't too sure if I was being 'too honest' in this video, but I just wanted to share my experience and I'm really glad people seem to like this video :)

·
·
·

👍. :D

You wanna Know my best part in that video ?😂

I don't know about crypto , But I know about music production & teaching people online

Hehehehe that part gat me 👍. Well said

·

Haha, yeah I didn't want to pretend I was any kind of crypto expert, I just wanted to share my honest opinion.
Thank you though Rufans, I'm glad you liked this video!

Amazing tips! :D

·

Thank you!

I am a new member of steemit, from Mexico, can not wait to get involved. Thanks for your post, you encouraged me.

UPvoted! Wow 6 months and you have achieved quite the accomplishments! #goals!

·

Thank you!

thanks for the great advices! we will try to follow them @tomasgeorge !

·

Nice, thank you!

sharing your experience will really help us as a new steemit users i appreciate that thank you and i wish you all the best

Thanks for this video!
It really inspired me to also start with Steemit.

Good tips, trying to build a trading blog here too :)

There's a great investment opportunity in Steem Dollars right now. Check out my analysis :)

great experience. I will definitely follow your footsteps to get success in steemit community. Thanks for sharing your experience

Ok bro. Now interact with the comunity.

·

For real! I wonder how much he paid for the robot promoters.

·

wooooo!!!!!!!

Appreciate the share bro, as a newer guy in Steemit there are still a ton of things to learn aha....live and learn!

Thank you very much, my friend, I hope it will be 6 months :)

Hay Follow for Follow?

·

yas follow me i follow u!

Are you posting more on steemit or D Tube? (or equal)

I just got my head around steemit and it feels like the old days of internet and more real and organic. It's not rushed. i really don't get this bot thing though, do these guys ban them? i mean I followed one as the news story was ok but then realised it was a robot.

I agree with you @tomasgeorge I've only been on steemit for just about the past 2 months now and its very obvious who puts the time and effort into their post to make them original and who does it just to make money and spam the shit out of this place. Good tips for sure.

do you generally blog about the same topic or do you find people like a variety of topics? Great post!

Thanks for sharing your experience @tomasgeorge

·

No worries, thank you for reading my blog and I hope my video offered some kind of value to you.

That 's right. Hi, I'am Yell from Aceh, exactly Indonesia. Are you know where is that? Nice to read your post.

Your work is impressive. I'll take an example from you.

Wooh! What a ride.... Thanks for the reminders@tomasgeorge!

·

No worries, thank you for reading my blog and I hope my video offered some kind of value to you.

·
·

Yes, it offers a lot of information!

Hi can someone answer my newb question. I see this post has earned 460 dollars, but is that 460 US dollars or 460 Steem dollars?

·

it is split between the creator and the author. And from that it is than split between SBD and SP. Each the SBD and the SP have different real cash values. You can trade the SP and SBD into cash by transferring it into coinbase.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and advises on Steemit! As a beginner steemian, I appreciate it. :)

·

Thank you, I hope this video helped!

@tomasgeorge So nice, thanks for share your experience

·

No worries, thank you for watching my video :)

As someone new to the platform, I feel that a lot of the posts and comments that I've read are contrived, and the use of bots/self-promoting low-quality content are large issues that need to be reduced in order to see mass, organic growth of the platform. Fortunately, we are still in beta, and I believe that the development team will figure out solutions to at least somewhat mitigate these issues. I'm going to continue using the platform because I still see high-quality content being created and curated. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

·

Yeah, that is true, however, I still believe there is room for high-quality content.

But you're right low-quality content can be a bit of a problem, but we get this on all platforms unfortunately.

Yeap agree, good sharing! Blogging on steemit with a sole purpose of making money have a greater chance of leading to disappointment and frustration. Keep a stable emotion and have fun interacting with others is much more important!

·

That's true. I feel like a lot of people (and myself at the start of my steemit journey) think it's going to be easy where people will follow them and upvote them soon as they join, but really it takes time and a lot of blogging. In my experienced anyways..

I am doing your suggestions right now I want you to be my friend. hahahaha

Thank you @tomasgeorge for sharing this experience as for me now you are an experienced steemian since i am kind of new here. I would really like to walk on your steps and the most important is to have fun. You have my vote 👍🏼
Thank you

·

Nice, thank you!

wow is very interesting advices nice friend, I am starting in this appasionate world

·

Thank you!

I'm new to Steemit - still contemplating my direction with it and learning but I think very good advice here and its encouraging.

One of the reasons I came here was to find a venue that isn't so saturated with meaningless clickbait. Steemit is still young I suppose, but it actually seems pretty good so far. Your points are a good mindset for keeping it real.

Yes, definitely agree with you. Steemit is actually a lot of fun once you put the money aside for a while.

Funny thing is, people who care about the money less probably make the more :p

Short & sweet and very helpful, thanks :)

Thank you for sharing this with us, taking your time blogging is extremely underrated. I wish everyone would focus on quality and not quantity. I hope you have a blessed 2018.

·

Thank you, I hope you have a great 2018 too!

I always appreciate good advice and I like what I hear you saying......

·

Thank you!

Good to know experienced users' view :) . I have just started and looking for get into this new eco-system. I very much have same opinion about all of your 3 points. In a month, I will also be posting something very substantial from my own experiences.

I have been here for 3 weeks and I love it. thank you for your video

·

Thank you! I'm glad you are enjoying the community

Steemit is a GREAT platform to connect to people, sharpen your writing skills and get sway from the stagnation of conventional social media. This platform allows people to be gauged by their individual commitment to find, develop and sharpen the skills of that niche. Doing this in anything in life will reap great rewards....even if you don't make a single $$$

Thanks for making this post! I have been trying to get more involved in the community and learn more about Steemit before I have to start classes again. It's awesome to see where you've gotten to in 6 months!

Noiiice video!
Man, thanks for that, I'm super relieved.
You are living proof to me that you can "make it" on this platform without necessarily having to become a crypto expert. because frankly, when my buddy first tried to explain it to me my head almost exploded and I am less than confident I'll ever get to grips with all the intricacies of crypto and what blockchain really is haha And I'm barely a week in. >->
thank gawwwd hahaha
toodles and rock on! ~~ ♡

·

You sound like me lmao... My husband tries desperately to dumb it all down, but I can truly only grasp about 20% of the words that come out of his mouth. I guess I'm just lucky one of us knows wtf is going on :) We'll get there eventually!

·
·

hahaha omg this made me giggle.
I realise it's a bit cliché but thank god for the tech-savvy men in our lives. >___>
We can do it! (with a little help) XD

·
·
·

Lmao Exactly, but in my case a LOT of help! Just had another crypto convo today and could feel my brain melting while my eyes glazed over bwahaha. Keep on keepin on girl!

·

Thanks, yeah I'm not a cypto expert haha.
Some of my friends are and it's a different language. I'm starting to understand it though, just about!

·
·

Good on you! :D Well it gives me hope I'll get there at some point hahaha
Mostly I haven't moved very far from this stage of things:
IMG_0007.jpg
I feel like you really need someone to "hold your hand" a bit when you first get into it. Honestly, I have no Idea how some people manage to educate themselves about crypto so well, I mean I don't even understand most (supposedly) explanatory material I find. It's definitely like learning a different language!

amazing story! cheers!

·

No worries, thank you for reading my blog and I hope my video offered some kind of value to you.

Have fun and give knowledge are one of the best things !

@tomasgeorge I'll take this advice to heart thanks

@tomasgeorge Thank you for sharing your experience. Is great post like this that allow others like me to take notes..and learn. The Steemit journey can be a bit of bumpy road. Tons to learn. Wishing all the best here, and a phenomenal 2018. - @splendorhub

Hahaha okay, great!!!😁

Great exprence bro thanks for sharing

This is really inspiring me personally.
I believe you worked hard,, so you are gaining gold now and from now on.
Keeep it up

what is your definition of "rubbish" ? thanks!

Hi bro, nice to meet you, I like your words about Blog to help people or to entertain people, not to make money, that's cool 😀

waaaoooow yhis is awesome post m very inpire to that post after reading your post am very motivated to your post ....and your 6mounth ecperience is very good

I KILLED HIM

I'm writing this with an insane mind
Yes,
Because I hurt him, with a sane mind
I'm writing this for him
for the one who loved me with no choice
A love that bought me with no price
I'm writing for the one I've always written for
My words so deep and painful

His bleeding heart is judging me
His eyes are convicting me of murder
The wounded walls of his heart are calling for me
They want me to ease his pain
I can feel his soul weakening away
The one who loved me with no choice

The one I love is six feet down the ground
And my guilty self is six miles away
I thought I was paving way
Only for him to pass away?
I'm no close to his body
Not even his cold heart
I can hear his whispers
His dying wish
I killed him!

My love,
Please wake up
Wake up to the arms of the one that loves you
Wake up and view the sun set with me
Let me hear your heart beat once more
I will make up for the times I lost in grace
If you don't come back to me
Then I'll look for you
And I'll find you in the world of the dead
I will vanish with no trace

Nicely put! I'm pretty new and am trying to find my place on this platform. Like someone else said, it is hard to make friends.. the interactions are brief which is fine, but comments lack any real interest. I'm giving it time, its inspiring to hear others experiences. Keep on keepin on!

nice work

Nice Post.. By @dhifa

Hello and Thanks for Nice Post. I followed you and would appreciate a follow back. I'm looking forward to see more posts! Have a great day and have fun. Welcome!

Please upvote, comment, resteem and follow @old-school-cool
get back to back in touch for upvote.

this is true man "It's better to have few quality posts then a load of posts that you rushed"

·

Exactly!

Thanks for the direction. I'm trying to figure out what type of content I want to share here on Steemit.

I enjoyed your article
I'm a newbie. I love steemit business idea, and have migrated from blogger to steemit;
But i have concerns:

  • how sustainable is the business model so we can assure this will keep on going. After all, blogger & adsense belong to alphabet and probably stays in the market

  • I'm also concerned about things some people say about the whales....

  • steemit sees some duplicate and worthless content which can threaten its value

·

I would just say create the best content you can and keep blogging and offer as much value as possible on the platform and to the Steemit community.

Thanks for your post@tomasgeorge!

Successful blogger indeed! Thank you for this insightful information. It seems like common sense, but many people including myself make some pretty critical errors. It would really be nice to earn a successful income on steemit as a blogger, but for me, even being paid mere pennies for my thoughts is still something that has never happened before, and for that I must express the upmost gratitude.

very impression your post, I really like, I want to like you what is its secret?

Steem for Steemians ! Next meeting at $ 10.70

This is very inspiring and helpful for someone who is just starting here on Steemit. I found this website few weeks ago and I did not know what I was doing. I got lots of questions and one or two Steemians were able to answer just few of the simplest things I asked. It pays to read and reach out to the community I am glad I did not quit and now I am starting to learn again and continue this Steemit journey.

Great video. I am very new here and have just started to understand Steemit but have no idea how DTube works.

I see that you have earnings on your DTube video posts as well. Are those separate from your earnings on Steemit.com?

the best experience

U r superb bro

Your story is inspiring. Thank you for sharing your video and your advice of creating quality content.

Great post.

Good thoughts on your experience.
I started myself in May 2017, but quickly lost track on it as I did not know how behave on the platform on Steem. Since approximately a month it took back my attention and day by day I am learning more and more.
Video's from people like you, who share their experience, help me a lot.
Of course, in the beginning many people think "let's go for the money!" and that's it.
But I am trying to figure out how to feel accepted by the community by writing good contents, so the appreciation will follow.
Cheers from Belgium and good luck with music blog!

I think your Post is for a big group of people very helpful!
Thx for making this Website for us!
Upvote when your in my opinion @alokkamboj

Wow how did you do it, ive been here for almost the same time , but havent gotten anywhere

I share the same opinion as you more quality and less trash!

·

Nice! Yes, the less trash the better.

Please follow me. I post stories, motivational quotes, I also blog about history and also Cryptonews. Thanks. And remember to support by upvoting.

So how do you do your research to make posts that will interest people?

Good point of view. As a newbie who are desperate for alternatives to centralized platform with way to much power. Without knowing it, FB and Google was so important for my life, income and everything. I don't even know how it went so fare. Hope Steemit will replace a lot of it, and I look forward to get know with the system of payments. I also read some great articles her and hopefully an old mans tech skills are growing.

Good to have some inspiration from someone who is still happy after 6 months

Streemit is fresh.. You've really gone far bruv

Like any social network, make friends on there and have fun.

I think steem is great I like to blog more than making vids ,,I also started steem about 6 months ago .... lots of fun .... and learned lots and lots .... blows YouTube out of the water ...and no I don't make much on it but still love the idea and platform ....

·

Yeah, you're right, it is loads of fun :)

Congrats on your recent success. :)

·

Thank you!

·
·

You're welcome

Great advice brother! I am using Steemit more and more these days. Cheers!

·

Thank you, I'm glad you found this video useful.

I love your article. It is good to have a right mindset before blogging steemit

very interesting experience on how you began you journey on steemit we pray you get to a more higher level.

@tomasgeorge, whoooa.... pretty review. i love it. good and outstanding performance. looking forward for more review

·

Thank you!
Yes, I'll definitely be doing another review for my 1-year journey and few others along the way.

Warm thanks. Cannot agree more

This is nothing, but the truth to steemit beginners that they should think about professionalism not money👍

thank you for sharing your experience
