Steemit. And so the adventure begins

in introduceyourself •  5 months ago


Hi I am Swati, a traveler, a mixed media artist and costume designer.


I am Imaginatively gritty, a daydreamer, a traveler who is constantly looking for something new and adventurous. I am originally from Rajasthan- a land of palaces and epic forts to colorful festivals and wildlife encounters.

I am a freelance designer and also manage my site and blog where I talk about design, travel experiences, crafts, and artwork and that is what I would like to share on Steemit.

I've had the luxury of being able to travel to Europe for studies, Australia and New Zealand for my passion of costumes and many, many remote mountains in India and Bhutan due to my craziness and love of mountains.
The most memorable thing I have done so far has been trekking solo in the Himalayas which scared me to death after my encounter with a bear and getting lost on the trail. But I can’t wait to go back and do it again. My journeys have taught me lessons for life. :)
Love to be here. Looking forward to meeting you all. <3

Greetings, Swati

Be very welcome to steemit social network. I've been here since February of this year and I'm really enjoying. I participate here actively every day. Here, we can learn a lot by reading other people's posts about content that interest us and we can post our own content, helping people within our areas of expertise, training our writing, making a kind of "therapy" because, writing helps us to reflect on our knowledge and we will be slightly paid for it. I hope you enjoy.

My main tip is: before you begin to post your content, read the posts by teaching staff how to use this network, about how to write good text, how are the coins sbd, steem and steem power, how to advertise your text using the discord by example, votes issues and other things.

Other than that, we are always available. If you have any questions, go ahead.

Good afternoon!!!! Welcome!!

Hello itravelarts! 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!
