A Newbie Introduceyourself

in introduceyourself •  8 months ago

Hello everyone, I'm JMB @xmarnarx88!

Though a bit late at introducing myself (apologies) I'm quite excited to be part of the Steemit community :-)

In all honesty, I had to wait almost a month for my account verification, and when it finally was good to go, I was tied up with other life events. Two nights ago, I came back across Steemit, logged on, and started checking out the community.

Enough of that, I'm sure you'd rather know what interests I have, and what my motivation for Steemit is.

My personal interest are many and somewhat varied, but are best summed up with....
Music. All Kinds of Music. Ranging from Avenged Sevenfold, to classical, to Selena Gomez, if it has a good catchy beat, or is instrumentally inspiring, I probably dig it!

Not that I'm overly involved in playing anymore, but I still like to pick up a bass or guitar and play around from time to time! :-)

Also, I have a love of video games. Especially retro games (yes, I own an Atari Retro Console, Retro Nes, Retro Snes, and Retro Genesis, and still have my original gameboy color!) and RPG's. A couple of my all time favorites include Ninja Gaiden, Ultima Online, Diablo 2, Skyrim, and Final Fantasy 3, 4, 6, 9, and 12!

I'm just know getting into amateur writing, so you can expect some short stories (both fictitious and real) in the future.

Also, I have an amateur passion for graphic arts.
Primarily using Blender. I'll upload some creations later:-)

And also, I enjoy studying the Bible.

I Really plan on using Steemit to mostly network a little and blog about the aforementioned topics.

Questions and comments (and advice) are all welcome! :-D

Hello xmarnarx88! 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!

Welcome to Steemit friend!

I am a new steemian myself and already finding people of similar interest as me is awesome!
I too am in love with quite a large variety of music and videogames, from old to new.

Hope you'll have a good time here :)


I think I will, and I wish you the same! It's all just a tad overwhelming, but in a good way:-)

Welcome! There's a rather large gaming community on steem, @steemgc - and there's even dlive, which lets you stream; and get paid in the same way as steemit will allow.

There's definitely a niche that still exists for good content about retro games, and that sort of content tends to prove pretty popular around this parts.

Don't get discouraged, and don't let your broad interests dissuade you from pleasing the masses. Just post for you. If people like your stuff, they'll come!


hey thanks alot! I've got to say that thus far, this has been a very welcoming and engaging community! and thank you very much for your encouragement! :-)
