My first Steemit post.

in introduceyourself •  last year  (edited)


Hi all! My name is Jon Beinart and I run Beinart Gallery. I've become increasingly interested in Steemit recently after being screwed by Facebook and Instagram's dreaded algorithms so I thought I'd give it a shot. Our gallery specialises in strange and imaginative figurative art and I hope to find fellow enthusiasts on this platform. The image above is a drawing by Miles Johnson which will be exhibited at our gallery in June in a four person group exhibition titled "Dreamer, Lover, Maker, Fighter"

I aim to post on Steemit semi-regularly and I look forward to interacting with you all.

Hello Jon, welcome to Steemit!
That image is very pretty, I wish I can see it in real. You don't, by chance, live in Australia, do you? :D


Hi! Thank you. We are located in Australia. Miles is an incredible artist. You can see more of his work on his website: I'm super excited about showing him at our gallery. We have a solo show scheduled for him next year too. Are you in Australia?

Whoa, that’s awesome! I actually can go and see his art :D.
Is there an admission fee for visitors or can everyone just walk in on opening hours?

Great! Please come to the counter and introduce yourself. It will be nice to meet you. There is no admission fee and our opening hours are here:

Welcome to Steemit, @beinart! Looking forward to discovering the art in your gallery and the work of a gallery owner in general :)

Thanks for the friendly welcome @herverisson! I'm enjoying myself already. I'll definitely be posting a lot of weird and wonderful art. I hope you enjoy the work! I'm following you too now :)

Hey Jon and welcome to steemit! Your gallery sounds awesome. Looking forward to hearing more about it! :-)

Thanks so much @yasminep. Nice to meet you! :)

Nice to meet you, @beinart! Welcome to Steemit!

Thanks @god-is-love! Nice to meet you :)

Welcome on steemit and good luck 🙏😊

Thank you @vee2180

hi @beinart Welcome to Steemit Community. Looking forward for your next post. See you around 😊

Thanks for the warm welcome @hazelicious!

Welcome! I suggest you to take a free HTML5 tutorial from W3School so you could enchance your posts and also make a gorgeous galery of each one. It just require some interest. The more interactive the post the more interesting it becomes. You could also use some graphic IDE if you don´t want to code jajaja.

Thanks for the advice @rzcalla. I'll definitely consider that. I like the idea of making visual gallery posts, but learning code sounds very daunting. I'm not particularly tech savy ;)

Most of the code would be a one time see, then copy paste from a template you made. There are some web HTML5/CSS3 editors that make the process easier like You could just design your post/blog stile from a template from there then save it. You must check if the blog toolkit integrated in Steem can manage CSS3. Just make the sample design, copy the HTML code into the steem editor and take a look at the preview. If it looks as good as in the wix editor then you are almost ready to go. For the images you just have to edit the url that links to them into the code. It worths the job :)

I got your FB message - following you now. Welcome to Steemit!
I see you hooked up with @leoplaw already, so check out the peeps we follow to find more of us here.
2 months ago I posted a blog with all the artists from my network I knew then - by now, there are more.
upvoted and resteemed
also shared on twitter:

Yay! Thanks Otto! @leoplaw & @gric have been showing me the ropes, so I am in good hands. I have followed some of the artists in your blog post too. Thanks for that!

Well, welcome to Steemit. I think you are going to be so happy here.

I rarely even go on FB anymore and only sometimes post my art there, just as somehow I think I am meant to.

You will find some amazing art in the genre that you love as well as so much more. I am an artist myself and have found Steemit to not only be a great place to share your art, but I feel my work has grown and progressed because of my being here and meeting so many wonderful artists from all over the globe.

The connections and sharing here is such a boon to the art community and I honestly feel that we are on the precipice of the next movement in art and artists and sales and connections and what it even means to 'own' art and how it is viewed and displayed.

Welcome to the future!

That all sounds wonderful Donna. Thank you for the warm welcome! I look forward to getting to know the art community here!

What an interesting image to be part of your exhibition. I hope to see more works like this.
Enjoy Steemit )

Hi @trenz. Isn't it wonderful! Miles will be making 6 new drawings for the show, so I'm very excited. I'm a huge fan of his works and it's such an honour to show him. You can see more of his work on his personal website:

The paintings are amazing! The show will be a success. I hope you enjoy it ;)
Thanks for the link.

Quite an impressive first post .. doing well right out of the gate. I'm an artist so check out my work. Welcome to Steemit .. no algorithms yet, but the bots and status games here are complicated. Its a very small community but has potential.

Thanks @praguepainter! I enjoyed checking out your work. It seems like there are a lot of artists on Steemit! I love the idea of no algorithms, but have been reading up on the bots and I've seen a few bot comment on my post. What do you mean by Status games?

One problem at Steemit is that by monetizing the activity and adding the element of buying bot votes to hopefully drive traffic to your post, the content becomes secondary. If you have a successful post with many upvotes its usually because people are voting you to get a payout, not because they have any interest in the content. So it skews the feeling of community and lowers the standard. But it does make some people money if they know how to play the game right.
Status games is about attracting whales and people with more Steem to follow and vote on your posts. The big "whales" have many vests and when they upvote you you can make more money .. but seriously your first post is already a great start so just dont lose your keys and you'll be fine .. :)

Hello @beinart , welcome to Steemit. Interesting introduction to yourself and a great image! Quite trippy which i like very much. Looking forward to seeing more from you. I'm sure you will find many fellow enthusiasts on here!

Thanks so much @missysheshe86! It's lovely to meet you :) I'm glad you like the Miles Johnson piece. If you like trippy you will probably like a lot of the work we show.

You have hooked me already haha lovely to meet you too!

Stay awhile... stay forever!!!! Moah ah ha ha...
