Hi Steemit! I am new and looking to make friends blogging

in #introduceyourself2 years ago

I just heard about this cool new thing from someone on facebook saying you can make money blogging here? That is really neat. I am more of a reader than a blogger but I wanted to give it a try. It took me a while to get on here and post because I didn't know what to post about? I chose to just put the pen to paper and say to hi to everybody and hope that we can become friends here on steemit.

I like to read a lot of biographies some of my favorites are about Abraham Lincoln, old biographies about baseball players, about George Washington, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and just about any of the "Founding Fathers" as well as their wives including Abigail Adams who was pretty remarkable in her own right. I did not include any pictures because I don't want to mess up and plagiarize anything, so just text for this post for now.

I am very happy to be and get that first post out of the way, hope you enjoyed it and have a great day everybody!

Hello a0x1! Welcome to Steemit! Hope you'll like the community here. As a start, here are 5 tips that we believe will be helpful to you:

  1. Keep your passwords safe: Unlike conventional sites, Steemit has 4 types of passwords. Each offers varying degrees of access to your account, so know where and when to use each of them. Also, make sure to keep them all safe and secure.
  2. Get Steem rewards: When writing a post, you'll have the option to choose how to receive your reward: "Default 50%/50%" or "Power Up 100%". As of this moment, choosing Default 50%/50% is the better option. But this can change over time. Check our post to know more.
  3. Upvote wisely: When upvoting, wait at least 30 minutes after the post is published to maximize your curation reward. Also, make sure not to upvote too much too fast so as not to drain your voting power.
  4. Know your Steem, Steem Dollars and Steem Power: Steem and Steem Dollars are the 2 main currencies here. Convert and power up more Steem into Steem Power so you can have higher values on your upvotes.
  5. Have Fun and Enjoy!

Hello @a0x1! Welcome to steemit. You just have to be yourself, and post or blog about things you're knowledgeable about. I personally love reading self-help books as I believe you're never to old to learn. I sound like an old guy lol, but seriously just post about how you feel and you will be ok 👌 good luck to the future ☺
