My Steem Story – By @elisonr13
MY STEEM STORY
Everyone has a story – and all our stories have something in common… we all started from nothing and knew nothing. People want to hear stories. They want to hear OUR stories — they want to know who we are, where we are from, what we are doing, who and what we love, what we have learnt and where we are going. People also want us to hear their story! Being a part of the Steem network is an individual journey for every single one of us and through this initiative we will share our stories not only with all who are already here – hopefully inspiring, guiding and informing them… but doing the same for everyone else in the world too. Through our stories we will prick the curiosity of those who have not yet arrived and illuminate and widen the already open doors to our one in a million blockchain.
We invite and encourage each and every one of you to participate and share your stories too! You can find the "how to" details at the end of this post.
MY STEEM STORY - BY @ELISONR13
Where my Steem Journey began
It was October 2017 the date I first heard about steemit. I was in the genesis of my university career and in terms of expenses I had many, so one afternoon my sister appears talking about a "Meetup" that would take place in San Joaquin, a neighboring town; The event would be dictated by her co-workers and was aimed at other people, but she heard the company's halls talk about the subject and of course we attended.
In the course they talked about how people monetize their art and their way of life, how they interact with people from all over the world, how they learn, evolve and improve their lives by feeding a blog, being part of a community as virtual as palpable. I have never been a lover of social networks, I never heard about decentralized applications, but this was something I should try.
My initial challenges & how I overcame them
The first thing I did not understand was how to convert cryptocurrencies into national currency, it was a strong stage, thank God the exchange houses appeared as the one I currently use, @orinoco. My fight against my ignorance towards the markdown simbology was not so severe thanks to my sister and google.
The content in Spanish was supported by @cervantes and not many more, so it was difficult to make content in Spanish and get support, I had to frequent the foreign language. I realize that steemit without discord was something almost impossible, it was increasingly necessary to know "what is Discord", and without love for adventure I left, creating my account and finding all the communities I did not know, "the pearl of the seashell."
My Steem blockchain knowledge
It is appropriate to say that I am not the same ignorant one who started a blog of "whatever" a couple of years ago, however my current knowledge is so useful as to be called "basic", I cannot explain to people outside that the internal organizational and functional structure of steemit is as complex as the same word "complex" is, but I can tell you about many useful things, things that I appreciate knowing and that if I didn't know they would take me back, to a stage or site that I would call limbo.
My Steem favourites
Art always predominates in my focus. Since I came to steemit until today, art remains my favorite subject to read, listen, contemplate, learn, practice and share, of course I have followed some blogs and vlogs, and I have tried to do them, but art predominates as a preference.
My golden nugget advice
Recently I had an interview on @radiosteemit where I was asked the same question, "What advice would I give for others to advance on steemit?" and my answer is the following: look for and surround yourself with people who motivate us, help us, know more, it will be valuable conversations and instructions that these people will leave us; and when someone less informed or educated approaches us, then we are the people who motivate, help and instruct.
