Call to Steem Community Developers - GET IN HERE!
Get Active Within the SteemDevs Hivemind Community
Swing by the SteemDevs Hivemind Community and start creating some development related content! Now is the perfect chance to get some extra eyeballs on your content due to a lack of posting activity, but hopefully that will change soon! By creating your posts with the SteemDevs tag, you will make it much easier for those interested in supporting developers to find them. And trust me, there are quite a few large users that are eagerly awaiting high quality development related content.
Use the Steem Proposal System
Do you have a project or an idea that needs a little funding and support to really get off the ground? If so, make sure you are using the Steem Proposal System to create a funding post and seek support for it. The purpose of the Steem Proposal System is to enable those users that have beneficial ideas for Steem to more effectively make them a reality. When you create your proposal, be sure to share it within the SteemDevs community to help get funded as fast as possible!
Join the Discussion
On top of the SteemDevs Hivemind community, you can join the SteemDevs Discord server which has 1300+ members. The SteemDevs discord contains channels for various programming languages, projects, or discussions. When you join, make sure to say hello and what you are looking for so you can get assigned a posting role and participate in the server discussions. The server is made up of some SteemIt employees, community developers, job recruiters, hobbyists, and more! So what are you waiting for? Come join the darkside!
Share Your Favorite Posts
If you don't have any new or interesting development related content, another way you can support the community is to simply share the posts made by others. Every time a post is shared you are increasing the likelihood it will reach its target audience and of course, the payout of the post. Just a few clicks and a couple seconds out of your day could really help your fellow developers.
This is the part where you show your creative side! Come up with new and exciting ways to promote the SteemDevs community and let's really show the world how active the development around our Steem blockchain is. There is a misconception in the crypto world that Steem development is rather stagnant so stand up and make your voice be heard.
Vote for Developer Witnesses
Of course we all know how important it is for a witness to receive support. As a Steem witness, we are required to have high quality servers running to ensure the stability and security of the Steem network at all times. These servers have a cost and oftentimes this cost does not come with much or any profit. A simple way to support developers is to visit the SteemIt witness page and vote for those that you know are providing valuable support to the Steem developer community. I will refrain for mentioning any developers in this post as to keep it generic, however it should not be very hard to find a list of active developers. (Check the proposals page; check "steemdev" tag on Steem, etc, etc)
Promote Your Content Outside of Steem
Finally, and maybe most importantly, always ensure to promote your Steem content OUTSIDE of the Steem ecosystem. It is great to get votes by your fellow Steemians, but what are votes if the underlying rewards are not worth very much? The more content is shared on Twitter, Facebook, Medium, Reddit, and ClubPenguin, the more people will know about Steem, the more they will search for it on Google, the more SteemIt and others will make via ads, and potentially the more YOU will make via the appreciation of the STEEM token.
