So you are a creative spirit. You have content you want to share and write about. Whether it's story telling or education. Stumble across STEEMIT and viola! An outlet for your works within a community that will appreciate it.
You immediately write a content filled post on a topic you are passionate it about and send it into the STEEMIT world.
Then.....NOT MUCH HAPPENS.
If that story sounds familiar, welcome to the party. As the above is my experience.
The post is to share lessons I've learned and hopefully to get others to share their knowledge to not only help me be a better STEEMER, but to help every other newbie as well :-)
So, what have I learned my first 48?
Well....I wish I would have read up on many STEMMIT how to's before making my first post.
The INTRODUCTION seems to be a very important thing. I said hello at the beginning of my post, but that's as far as it went.
Consider this my formal introduction. :-)
That's me Mitchell J. and ScaredyCatGuide is the name I write under.
GOALS - To provide financial education content to help fellow STEEMERS make informed choices on their money, investments and lifestyle. While we are all here to build this network, there are plenty that are also using the money earned to live and or better their life. Making informed decision with your financial life outside of STEEMIT is as important as what you to inside STEEMIT.
MY BACKGROUND - Several years as a licensed financial professional along with 5 years of daytrading and covering financial news for several news outlets. I mix in some real estate investing as well.
Everything I have learned I want to share. I enjoy teaching and can talk finance all day.
Sooooooo..back to STEEMIT.
There are so many TAGS to choose from. As a content creator you want to be in a tag relevant to your work, but you also want to get as many eyeballs on that work as possible. For the items I write, EX. https://steemit.com/real/@scaredycatguide/real-estate-stocks-or-peer-to-peer-lending-what-s-my-best-investment
it makes the most sense to TAG it under "money."
However, it seems all the action is under the STEEMIT tag? So my question is are folks putting content where it should be or where the most action is? STEEMERS please let me know.
Also, to the veterans on STEEMIT (whales I think?) Please feel free to share any other items of STEMMIT etiquette or best practices for all us newbies.
I'd like to do my best to act properly within this community and also impact the most people with financial education.
Gratitude to those making the "How To" videos. Particularly Gabriel Scheare as I've watched several of your videos!
STEEM ON !!!
