I'm sure many have heard of GINAbot but I wanted to share it just the same in case someone did not know.
GINAbot works with Discord, a chat app that you can use on your desktop or mobile (https://discordapp.com/) and will alert you via private message for many different functions:
If you add someone to your monitoring list, GINA will alert you of their new post. You can also configure her to tell you if someone upvotes you, comments or replies.
Here's information on GINAbot: https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@ginabot/hi-i-am-gina-i-m-here-to-help
It's free too! I do donate to the developer @neander-squirrel either 1 STEEM or 1 SBD per month depending on what I have. But you don't have to. Being new it's not expected.
I think Conradt was the first to tell me about GINA so it's funny I'm using her for his contest, but it really has helped me manage STEEMit and made my life so much better. Read Conradt's suggestions as well on his post:
Another service I like a lot that is new is @dustsweeper
If you have an upvote that is less than $0.0249, then your value will show either $0.00, $0.01, or $0.02. @dustsweeper will see those values on day 6 of your post/comment and upvote you $0.028 automatically so that you will get paid on the balance of those upvotes you already have.
Check it out! I sent 1 SBD and already Dustweeper is doing it's job. I really like this service and hope it keeps going on. It's new so give it a try.

- Try to add a few new people to follow each week. Add them to GINAbot so you can be notified when they post and see if you connect with them.
- Join some contests about things you are interested in. I assure you there is pretty much a contest for every kind of thing it seems!
- I personally do not visit the Trending or Hot pages anymore. I prefer the "friend of a friend" approach and look at who comments on the posts of people I do like and go check them out. That's really a personal style though :)
Good luck and comment if you have any questions! I still consider myself a newbie too.
