KNITRIAS PROJECT: Week 07 (The Interview)
A quiet week
Another week on the work of the Knitrias Project, with no more major changes and the group continues its creativity and learning activities on the platform. Some really great contributions and the production of posts increased. On simple terms, it was a stable week.
A campaign for new Members has re-started, @Knitrias is inviting some new people to join the group, the next week the campaign will continue trying to cover the two remaining slots. However, we have a new Member that will join shortly after we complete the group, he is @Jadnven and will take the place of @AdelJose.
This week @Muftii is participating in the artistic contest by Art-Venture and Wherein. There's still time to give him support on the comment section of this post where his work is showcased:
The interview with @Xpilar
The Interview has two participations only, even with two weeks of time limit. Both of them will receive the prizes for participation and for the winner equally. The Knitrias Project greatly appreciate the effort by @MyFreeLive and @Jacorv for their excellent contributions, they are both winners and already have received 15 Steem each one.
Readers can review the posts by these Members. Here we share the questions and answers on each interview.
Interview by @Jacorv: Interview with Xpilar | Special Challenge.
Q: Remember how it all started for you on Steemit?
A: Yes, I remember it very well.
My friend and I were already in the crypto market at that time.
We are logged on bittrex.com and trades on the stock exchange.
We notice a new coin "Steem" and see that it is among the top 10 on the stock exchange with a value of $ 3-4. We are curious about the big acquisitions and start our search online for Steem. We were very surprised to see that there was a blog page that offered rewards in crypto currency. We quickly realized that this was going to be big and we signed up for Steemit. At that time I bought approx. 26000 stem
Q: How did you manage to always have a good reward? Did someone help you?
A: At that time it was not easy to get in touch either, I commented on others but it was not often they answered back even though I gave a good upvote to their posts. What gave me rewards in the beginning was my upvote to others. It took a long time for anyone other than my Norwegian friends to give me an upvote on my posts.
But then after a while I became friends with many and my posts were rewarded.
Q: How did you come up with contests? Did it give you the opportunity to become famous on Steemit?
A: Yes, that's almost right, but it was just as important to answer everyone who submitted a comment and provide guidance on Steemit and Steem.
My first competition was to get others to read other people's posts and recommend them to me so that I could reward posts that normally didn't get good enough upvote.
It gave me many new friends and several of them are still here in the World of Xpilar.
Q: (Your artistic work) Is this related to your place of residence? Or your love for nature and its marine inhabitants?
A: Many of my videos are from marine environment, I love the ocean.
And some are from my hometown of Fredrikstad and others are from western Norway.
My digital photos are often characterized by marine environment, others are more science fiction, I love science fiction and everything related to space
Q: What recommendation would you give to new users?
A: Many people come here the first time because someone has told them that they can make money here. If they are just here to make money, they will not succeed.
First, it's about making contacts and showing their honesty.
Over time, it has a great significance and that others will trust you.
They will then start reading your blog and then there will be votes and comments.
One mistake many people make is to post too many posts per day.
Then others lose interest. I would say that a maximum of one blog per day with good content is enough.
And when it comes to comments, they have to comment on what the post is about, not short comments like good post / re-steemed etc.
As I said, it's all about building trust and making contacts over time
Q: What motivates you in creating your art?
A: When I produce my digital images, I am in a completely different world that gives me peace and satisfaction. And my competitions where I ask others to write a story based on my digital image give me a lot because there are many good storytellers here.
Q: What has been your worst moment on Steemit and why?
A: My worst moment in Steem is when witnesses I trusted made decisions behind our backs without asking the community first when they froze the funds of Steemit, Inc. and afterwards made us believe that what they were doing was right.
After that, a war arose and the same witnesses wanted steem / steemit to die, I need not say anything more about what everyone knows the rest.
Q: What would you include Steemit to improve it as a platform?
A: A better editor with tools for many are unfamiliar with HTML./Markdown. It must be easy when large masses come to Steem / Steemit to make posts.
RC Status is also something that needs to be addressed, too many have too little RC and can hardly comment.
It must be easier to get an account / registration for this with keys is not easy for many and they forget our important it is to have a backup
Q: What would you be doing right now if Steemit didn't exist?
A: It was a difficult question. Many people might have answered Facebook, but that's not for me. Possibly I had my own blog on the internet with competitions.
On the Knitrias Project we are much grateful with @Xpilar for accepting and this initiative and for his wonderful answers. Certainly @Xpilar is one of the most influential Steemians on this platform, and his efforts on the support and promotion of good content has been fundamental in these times of adjustments on Steem. Thank you very much for all your support @Xpilar.

Theme: Steem Auto:
This week we are insisting in the need for the Members to join the curation trail which instructions were explained in the last report: KNITRIAS PROJECT: Week 06 (Graduation). Until now only @KaySmile44 has joined this trail, but all the members were urged to subscribe. So, this week to encourage subscriptions, the challenge will consist in creating a post about the tool SteemAuto by the witness @Steem-Supporter.
What is the functionality of SteemAuto. How do you subscribe. Which are the differences between the Fan Base and the curation trail. Which other tools are working on SteemAuto. Which other trail have you found.
Questions, suggestions and information sharing can be made in the comments section of this post.
The Members are strongly invited to participate in the Discussion initiative by @Cmp2020. Every user commenting on the post will receive a share of the liquid rewards by the account @Penny4thoughts. @Knitrias is sponsoring this initiative on behalf of the Members of the Knitrias Project.
