INTRODUCTION.

Markdown and formating styles need not be confusing. It is a way to make our work beautiful and appear catchy to any intending reader. When our work is neat, a person will be interested to glance and read through it. On the other hand, when our work is shabby it will detract even when we have a good message to pass. Good content therefore comprises of the good message you intend to share and how neat your presentation is while sharing it.

In this post I will focus on formating style while writing on steemit.

FORMAT FOR TITLE.

Once on your typing window, where to place your title is already determined. See image below.

Fig 1.

To make your title look good, use capital letters.
Also use dividers. See sample below:
CRYOTOACADEMY SEASON 3/WEEEK 1/SAPWOOD-S3WEEK1/TRON AND STEEM

MAKING HEADLINE.

To make a headline, use #,then space and then your headline.
# INTRODUCTION.
The more you add the #, the smaller your heading. See example below:
# INTRODUCTION

result.
⬇️

INTRODUCTION

Second example:
###### INTRODUCTION
Result:
⬇️

INTRODUCTION.

Did you notice the deference in the two examples? Go through it again. Observe that the more you add # when making a heading, the smaller the wording becomes.
Use capital letters for heading.

PARAGRAPH.

use block style. See sample below.

⬇️

Steemit is a site for content creators and curators. In steemit, you earn when you write good content.

Steemit use a stake weighted mechanism. It means that the number of steem power you hold determines your voting weight.

I achieved this by typing enter key twice.

Notice the image I used above. This is called dividers. You can create such image to make you work appear good. You can equally use already made dividers. See list compiled by @focusnow.

IMAGES.

UPLOADING IMAGES.

Uploading image is simple. Refer to fig 1. Once u have your image ready, add it using the provision as shown in fig 1.

ADDING WATERMARK TO IMAGE.

I recommend imarkup app, if you are using smartphone. Download imarkup app on Google play. Use it to add word to image, trace work etc. Imarkup is a wonderful app and quite easy to use.

CREATING YOUR TITLE PHOTO.

Use "add text to photo" app for Android users. It is very easy to use. You can download it in the Google play store.
Here is a sample of a tittle image made with this amazing app.

Fig 3.

image source

As you may have noticed on the image above, I provided the source although it is my work. This is to avoid plagiarism. Copying from your very article, when it has been posted online can equally be termed as plagiarism.

SOURCING IMAGES.

If you have copied a free image online, provide the link. Follow the below method.

[Image source](paste the link)
It will appear as shown on fig 3.

ALIGNING IMAGES (RIGHT/LEFT/CENTER)

ALIGNING IMAGE RIGHT/LEFT
Use below command.

<div class="pull-right"> for right.

<div class="pull-left"> for left.
Above the image.
And then.

</div>
bellow the image.

Example:
<div class="pull-right">
(Upload photo)

</div>

See result below.
⬇️

AddText_08-26-01.19.10.jpg

If you want to add two images aligning left and right, make sure that the two images are of same size.

There will not be noticable difference when you align image to center. Because while uploading, the image is already centered.

TAGGING A POST.

Use # and @.
# is used when we want to tag a community or post.
We use it before the word and without space. The word will change colour to show that it has been properly tagged.

JUSTIFY.

Make your work fit to page and look nice. I mentioned this last because, this is the last thing to do.
To justify, we will use,

<div class="text-justify"> at the beginning of our write up, click on enter; Then we will place </div> at the end and click on enter.

IMPORTANT TOOLS

download "grammarly" it is an important tool to check for errors in Grammer. Download Gboard, if you are making use of android. Gboard is an Android keyboard and from Google. To me, it seems to work well with android than most keyboards out there in the market. Use http://www.quetext.com to check for plagiarism.
