Hello Steemit, My Name Is RichardsteemCreated with Sketch.

Hello Fellow Steemians, I'm new to Steemit & I'd just like to introduce myself.


I'm a Christ-follower who loves community & meeting new people. I'm a pretty laid back guy, but I like to have a good time too. I'm born & raised in Cleveland OH (Go Bucks O-H-I-O!!!) I enjoy reading, writing, drawing, music, sports (especially Baseball, Streetball/Basketball, & Pro Wrestling!) & being online. I've been online for 22+ years & I've found it to be a great place to interact with people from all over the world. The vastness of the internet still amazes me even though I've been online since 1995-96.


I found out about Steemit about 2 months ago as I was looking for a way to make money online. I've tried so many things, from push button softwares to app creation to affiliate marketing & just about everything you can think of & NOTHING worked for me. I'm sure many of you can relate. I was ready to give up. Then I met a person online who told me about this blogging & social media platform called Steemit. I had NEVER heard of it but it sounded very promising.


Although it sounds like a good way to make money online for those who enjoy writing, I'm somewhat skeptical & I guess I'll just have to wait & see. Since I like to write & developing new relationships, this could be a good fit for me. If anyone can give me some helpful tips & advice (SERIOUS TIPS ONLY PLEASE) on what to do next, I'd greatly appreciate it. Hope to hear from you soon!!!

Richard Out For Now!

Hello, Richard, and Welcome to Steemit.

With your varied interests, you'll surely find this to be a great platform. And if you bring quality posts to this platform, you'll soon find that your community grows and thrives.

Below are a few basic points of advice re posting on Steemit.

  1. Longer posts are more lucrative than short posts. If you make a post of 20–30 paragraphs, it's more likely to earn rewards.
  2. Include some photos, images or graphs, to complement the text.
  3. Make sure the text and photos are formatted properly, so that your post looks attractive and appealing.
  4. Be yourself.
  5. Be interesting and informative.
  6. Create quality content. Steemit is intended to be a platform of quality content. (You will see many insignificant posts with meager content and no quality. Most of those of posts [called “shitposts” by Steemit whale Stellabelle] will earn few rewards and soon pass into oblivion.)
  7. Get online and start curating. Read various posts, comment on those posts you find interesting, and upvote those posts. That’s the best way to attract followers.

Hope this helps for now. Good luck, and Full Steem Ahead!
