Wooohooo introducing myself... Aussie singer songwriter!

Steemit Hi.jpg

Hi Everyone!

My name is Bonnie Piesse and I’m so excited to join Steemit! Thanks to my friend @benleemusic for introducing me to it and encouraging me to dive in…

Though I admit I’m a little nervous, it seems like a wildly creative and awesome community here and I can’t wait to play and see what unfolds!


To tell you a bit about myself… I’m originally from Melbourne Australia and now live in LA.
Some say LA is a crazy place, but I really love the high concentration of artists and creative people… it’s like everyone here left their lives somewhere else to follow a dream and I think that’s beautiful!


I sing and write songs…

One of my favorite things to do is make music for film and TV. I’ve been lucky enough to have a number of songs and compositions featured in some great projects and hope to do many more collaborations in the future!

Lately I’ve been experimenting with producing my own music... it’s been quite the learning curve (and no doubt will continue to be) but it’s been really exciting and fulfilling…

I will say I can be a bit of a perfectionist and so have been keeping these new songs to myself, not really knowing if or how to share them… but I think it’s time to change that and Steemit seems like an amazing platform to jump in and share my work! So… in the near future I’ll be sharing some sneak peeks as well as final products.

I also sometimes act in TV and film etc! (Best known for my role as Beru in Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3… yes I get to forever say “I raised Luke Skywalker.” Very proud of that! )


I have some fun projects coming up this year and look forward to sharing about those.

I’ll also no doubt be posting about my other passions and hobbies… i.e. Hiking, nature, women’s empowerment, food, yummy healthy recipes, natural beauty tips, personal growth and spirituality, travel etc

I’m also lucky enough to have an amazing husband (Mark Vicente… soon to be on steemit!) who makes beautiful films/videos etc, so I’ll no doubt be sharing lots of what we make together… here’s a little taste (a live video he did of my song ‘Don’t You Dare’)

From what I’ve seen so far, this community is so rich with inspired creators… I look forward to learning from you all and seeing how I can support you too! Please say hi as I’d love to get to know you!


P.S. I also want to thank @coruscate @danieldyemusic and @maryjaney! Your posts have been very inspiring!

Welcome to Steemit!!


Bonnie is here! Whoo-hoo! Youre gonna love it here. Connect with @choogirl and the #teamaustralia peeps and get welcomed into a warm family xoxo


Will do, thanks so much Ben! So grateful you introduced me to Steemit... it's awesome already xo


Hi @bonniepiesse, yes please join Team Australia!!! You've done your intro post so you just need to vote for ausbitbank here: https://steemit.com/~witnesses
And then provide me with a fun fact about yourself.

This is the latest Team Aus date if you want to see the style of how I introduce people.


Ah excellent, will do thanks @choogirl!


Done! (I think--didn't get any kind of notification that it went through... any advice on that?)

Wlcome! Dont forget me if i be rich in steemit.

BTW do you know who @coruscate is named after??? :)


OMG @bonniepiesse I’m totally fangirling right now! I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan and im so excited to meet you! You are SUCH an amazing musician and you are seriously going to crush it here on Steemit. 😉

As @goldmatters hinted to here... I am literally named after Princess Leia. My parents went with a different spelling... but I have a brother named Luke and my Dad would always walk around the house saying “I am your father”. Hahaha


That is absolutely awesome! I'm fangirling too 'cause you're the first person I really started following on here! You're super inspiring :) Also I've started a musical duo called Coruscant... will launch that at some point soon! Anyway thanks for your awesome posts, I hope to follow in your footsteps on here!


Welcome to Steemit. I think you will do great here. Great post.

Awesome thank you!


Hey @bonniepiesse welcome to steemit loved reading your intro. You appeared in my feed from @benleemusic following. Will stay tuned for your work. Ciao


Thanks Neddy! Following you now too and looking forward to checking out your posts :)



It really is! Hope you make it out here :)

Hey welcome to Steemit, now hand over the recipe for Blue Milk!


OMG I just might... in fact I was thinking about a blue milk post on other social media recently... much better on Steemit... stay tuned!

Welcome to steemit, Bonnie!

Hi, Bonnie! Welcome to the neighborhood! I'm new too, only really posting for about a month now. It's kinda confusing to me in a lot of ways. Ive found the music community here to be top notch and so kind. You should definitely check out the open mic! There's still time to join this week's contest. I hope you (and your hubby) like it here! :)Best of luck to you! 💖-serena

Wow! this was a very exciting post to read!

I look forward to seeing more and more of your posts in the future! Followed!
Its really inspiring to see a fellow Aussie musician make some impact with their works internationally! :) Thank you!

Great to have you onboard :)

Is it like this?




Haha yes totally lol!!!


It can be difficult to get started, as your feed is just the people you follow; and it takes a while to find content creators you like.
The NEW tab is unfiltered, although there are occasional gems, and TRENDING is mostly crypto shop talk. If you click - Here - you'll be seeing steemit as Ben does.
He's been here a while and follows some of the most talented and attractive people around.
If you see someone you like, just click the the black triangle next to their name and 'Follow'.
You'll need it less and less as you build your own feed.


Thanks @mattclarke, super helpful!

Welcome to Steemit platform, from all of us in promo-nigeria. Steemit is a beautiful place to be and we are sure you will be happy here. Get to know more by blogging consistently. Never be discouraged, seek for assistant when necessary. Cheers!

Welcome Bonnie. You have a beautiful voice and I am looking forward to following you as you progress here. How has it been adjusting to LA after Australia? Culture shock or pleasant surprise? WOW! Star Wars. I'm a space nut myself and teach astronautics material.


Hey @spederson! Wow that's amazing that you teach astronautics material! I think you're the first person I've met who does that! I really really love LA... it definitely took me a few years to get into it but now it feels like home!

You have a great voice

Welcome!! It's nice to see how fast is growing the artist community :) I loved your song


Yes it seems like an amazing artist community! Thanks for checking out my song :)

hi there....welcome to steemit. Glad you could make it here. Looking forward to reading your post.

@Mountainwashere's Guide for New Users:

Welcome to Steemit! It's got a steep learning curve, but it's worth it in the long run if you keep putting in the time! Just know that it will take quite a while before you start getting attention and followers. The biggest secret to success? Keep posting high quality content regularly, and make sure to search out other people's posts, read them, and give relevant comments.

Tagging is extremely important. Always make sure to use all five possible tags, and to keep them relevant. You can always just tag something "blog" or "photography" or something else really general (so long as it's still relevant) to fill the quota if you need to- most of your tags should be established ones, though one or two less used ones are fine.

Posting more than four times a day can reduce your potential rewards, as well as turning off potential users. (I aim for one post per day most of the time.) Consistency is important, though, so try to have a regular posting schedule. You should also be sparing with resteems- only do it for really important posts. (I resteem a post once a month or less, generally.)

Always make sure to attach a photo to your posts! You should also have a finished profile: Write a description, add a profile picture and a banner- neither needs to be a photo of you, necessarily, but you should have something- and set a website.

There are a lot of really good resources out there for plankton and minnows (new users). You should check out the following groups and services, they offer a lot of valuable resources:

@thesteemengine (Check this one out first- they're an extremely supportive group that can help out in a lot of ways.)
@qurator (These guys offer an excellent liftime upvote to accounts that post consistent quality content.)
@steembasicincome (Another lifetime upvote option.)
@steemstem (The biggest and best STEM curation group in the game. If you're interested in writing or reading about science, check these guys out!)
@geopolis (A fairly new science curation group, this one's dedicated to the study of the Earth.)
@ocd (A curation group that seeks out undervalued new writers.)
@photocontests (Runs contests and provides other support for photographers.)

Much of the activity on steemit actually takes place off Steemit, on places like steemit.chat and discord. Learning to use them is a great idea.

If you haven't already, make sure to check out the official Steemit FAQ.

And, again, the biggest thing is just patience. Breakout successes are incredibly rare on Steemit- you've got to find your way to success through perseverance and hard work. It takes time, but you'll eventually succeed if you put in the work.

Please feel free to repost this guide on the posts of other plankton & minnows you run into (though I'd appreciate it if you credit me.) If it was useful to you, feel free to check out my posts and give me a follow!


Thanks for all the info @mountainwashere


Happy to help, let me know if you have any questions!


Amazing will do! Still going through all the info you sent... very very helpful!

welcome to steemit :)!


Hope you find Steemit helpful to your projects.
Look forward to reading your posts (and hearing songs)
Hope you aren't missing Tatooine too much ;)


Thanks yes I'm excited!! And of course always missing Tatooine! :)

Hi, welcome to Steemit. Enjoy your stay here and keep Steeming. :) @bonniepiesse

First off, welcome to the community! It is so great to have you here. Amazing song. I love your chosen spot to sit while recording. It is fitting as your voice is heavenly.

Thanks to @benleemusic for bringing in so many of his great friends into the community.

After you get a couple posts up please be sure to do an original to SteemIt video singing another song. You can use dTube, or YouTube (as long as it is new there). Once you do I am certain either myself or @choogirl who was already mentioned in a comment will be able to get your post curated by a group we are a part of. It will come with a nice upvote and help get you some much deserved attention here on the site.

Looking forward to more of your talent shining through.


Awesome thanks so much @randomwanderings I'll do that soon! And yes @benleemusic is amazing at leading the way!

Wow, you seem to have such an exciting career! Wishing you continued success and looking forward to following you! :)

welcome to steemit and enjoy your stay here

Very cool. So you're basically a superstar then! We're lucky to have you here on Steemit.



Haha thanks!!

Welcome to Steemit, Aunt Beru! Us Aussies are growing quite a nice community on here :)


Thanks @kieranstone! Yes it seems like it :)

Hi @Bonnie! welcome to steemit. I know you'll have a super awesome stay here. With the talent you have? No wonder! I love the voice, oops, love those wings too. Hahaha. You look like an angel singing. lol!

but I think it’s time to change that and Steemit seems like an amazing platform to jump in and share my work! So… in the near future I’ll be sharing some sneak peeks as well as final products.
I can't wait to see those... Happy steeming Bonnie!

Welcome fellow aussie! Looking forward to seeing more of that great voice and content from you!

Nice to meet you @joeyarnoldvn and thanks for your kind words! My eyes kind of change depending on the environment haha... blue/grey/green!

Very nice. Your voice is so pure.


Thanks Sophia!

Wow, I love the song and your voice is just amazing. Like the lyric from your song "Don't you dare give up the dream". Inspiring!

You have already helped out a fellow steemian who is going through some struggles in his life at the moment.
All thanks to your beautiful song Don't You Dare

I thank you and salute your powerful introduction post.

Best regards,
An Early Follower

EDIT: Wait WHAT!? You were Aunt Beru in the Prequels!? Steemit has officially blown my mind today. Huge Star Wars fan here! (I guess the profile pic gives it away though)
Revenge of the Sith is actually one of my all time favourites! OMG!

fanboy mode - slowly being disabled


So glad 'Don't You Dare' was helpful for you :) For sure we all need a little strength to get through our struggles!
And re Star Wars... yes haha! You're the first Star Wars fan I've met on here!! Keep me posted if there are any Star Wars blogs etc you know of that I could follow? I'm following you now too!

Tks you very much

Hi Bonnie, I am an aussie singer/songwriter and music producer (also a big fan of @benleemusic coincidently) I just joined steemit yesterday - nice to see aussie musos getting on board. I am just starting out writing for TV and film on TAXI and am hoping to get my first song synced. Cheers


That's awesome @natvegas! Happy to meet you on here and I'm following you now so let's stay in touch!

I absolutely love this song! Thank you for singing such a nice good night song to me 😍


Yay thanks Rebecca :) Glad you liked it!

here is a cover I did of Cigarettes will Kill You :) @benleemusic https://natpike.bandcamp.com/track/cigarettes-will-kill-you


Awesome cover!

Welcome to Steem @bonniepiese, you'll do great here


Thanks @gringalicious following you too!


gringalicious food and recipe blog is excellent.


Hello welcome to Steemit! I have had a great experience so far and I hope you do too! There are a couple of things I wish I was made aware of when I first joined. Ill bring up some uncommon things I've at least noticed people don't mention too often.

  1. Steemworld.org/@(your username)
    -a (nearly) complete interactive page that gives you a better overall experience and overview of what is really happening on your steem page.
    -steemstats is not that good
    -steemviz is a good pending payout site(does not include curation but has total pending payout including comment payouts)

  2. steemengine.net
    -in my experience voting on steemengine.net does not give or bring better upvotes in a significant manner to make using your voting power worth it. HOWEVER...the followers gained is unreal. I gained 50 just yesterday. If you want you can use my referal link not required though...

  3. steemit school with @dobartim and @flysky https://discord.gg/q9VEn5n
    A very informative and supportive group of people for minnows. Its fairly new but great basic support and tips there not to mention lots of contests and giveaways and love!

  4. if your going to buy upvotes for post promotion try and follow grumpy cat and his rules...

These are some uncommon things I wish I was made aware of early on when I first joined! I wish you the best and much success here helping us all grow this amazing platform!


Your welcome!

Welcome @bonniepiesse, so great to see another Aussie onboard Steemit. There is a great community of Aussies on here. Check out the #teamaustralia to see some of their content.
