Hello fellow steemates, new guy here!!!!

in introduceyourself •  3 months ago

snap.jpgHello my great community of Steemers, I'm John but you will see me as @JUGGERNAUGHT! I am new to Steemit and learned and got into it from your one and only @ARBITRARYKITTEN, I am her son and I am a senior in high school. I currently live in Washington and enjoy sports, most of all I love (adore) basketball. I have been playing for going on 5 years and really enjoy a great pick up game. Such as writing it is full of twists and turns, you have to make sure you focus and are intuitive, also be ready to make changes if something happens. I enjoy listening to music and relaxing with friends and family, my music preferences are hip-hop, jazz, rock, country, and pop.

Here is a little bit about me. I look to strive in this community and build myself and others up in the process. I attend GSA (gay straight alliance) in my school. I joined this club because I don't think you should get discriminated because you aren't "normal". My favorite color is red but as I say to everyone it sometimes changes from time to time. I have a GF that I have been with for a little over a year. My dream as a child was to play in the NBA, but the skill level is tremendous to play to that level.

"Insanity:Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. "Albert Einstein. This is my favorite quote because it is my life. I used to expect everything would be handed to me and I never had to work for it, I enjoy a good book, my favorite series of books are Cirque Du Freak. I highly recommend this book to people who enjoy vampires and action, Lots of action. I again can't wait to enjoy this community and gain followers and best of all friends.

Welcome to Steemit! You won't regret coming here. It is the future of social media. We cannot be censored here either.

There are a ton of other webpages to help you with Steemit. Here are some of the best for beginners:

https://steemd.com/ (This site is used to keep track of your voting power and other stats. You do not want to run out of voting power, and you only get so much per day. I keep my voting power around 80% for example.)

https://steem.makerwannabe.com/ (This site will tell you who follows you, who unfollows you, and who mutes you. It is great for meeting new people too. I regularly check it to see who has followed me to see if I should follow them back.)

https://steemit.chat/ (This site is the official chat webpage for Steemit. There are Discord channels too, but I usually stick to the official site. Come in to network and meet new friends. You can directly message people there too, so it makes it easier to communicate with your closest friends.)

Oh yeah, there are a lot of bots on here. If you see a cookie cutter reply, especially to your intro post, it is almost certainly a bot. Check the account's reputation. If it is low, I would recommend just ignoring them. Everything is public on Steemit, so you can go look at an account's comments and replies. Are they all the same? It's a bot.

Adding photos to your account as a new Steemian may be confusing at first too. The easiest way it to click to "Submit a Story." Once in there, use the built in Steemit tool to upload an image from your computer. Below the posting window, you will see "Insert images by dragging & dropping, pasting from the clipboard, or by selecting them." Click on the blue text. Once the image is uploaded, you can copy and paste the link into your account settings.

Verifying your identity is very important because it will get you more support and people will trust you more. The best way to verify is to link back to your Steemit account by using another public social media account. For example, I posted my Steemit articles from here through my Twitter account. Another person posted their Steemit information on their Facebook account. Some people will even post a video of themselves writing out their account information since that cannot be Photoshopped. The more famous a person is or the more valuable their content is, the more important it is that they verify. If a new account falls within those two categories and fails to verify, it may get blacklisted.

Again, welcome, and I've followed you! If you have any questions about getting started, look me up on the chat site.

Welcome new friend! I really like your quote at the end of your post!

@kubbyelizabeth that quote has surrounded my life since I was a toddler so I just had to put it

Welcome to Steemit juggernaught!

thank you @superstar 2018 glad to be here and happy to have such a big group of supporters.

·
·

You're most welcome! I wish you the very best. :D

Welcome to the steemit community @juggarnaught ! Your username reminded me on one of the X-men villan characters. lol.
(I think.... ah, me and my aging memory)

I do hope that you will enjoy this community as I am pretty sure your mom has talked about it a lot to you.
Here, at least at the #unmentionables (for instance) we thrive to give everyone with great original content an equal exposure chance when one is a team player in the community (getting to know new people, and supporting other great contents of your choice).

So keep writing, keep steeming, and we hope to see greater posts from you in the future!

ps: Thor is out???

·

thank you @hopehuggs really appreciate the gesture.

Happy how-do-you-dos to you, @juggernaught. You look fine in those good genes. Don't let your mom see this so she doesn't get a swelled head, even though she is swell.

·

hahahaha thank you @aedroberts I can try to get her to avoid the comments I can't make any promises though ;)

Welcome and good luck here!

All your friends will be on Facebook a bit longer, then they will move over here, by which time you will be way ahead of the curve!

Time to get posting and commenting - remember, don't just post crap, always add something to the conversation, and you'll do fine.

And whenever you can, buy a little bit of STEEM - even tiny amounts now will make a difference

Cheers
