New Introduceyourself post. Meet A Black Boy Ready To Share Stories And Insights About His Roots.

in #introduceyourself4 years ago (edited)

Hello Steemers! I'm new here and I must confess, this community is top-notch and absolutely engaging. I dont really know how to ventilate myself but my Igbo people (a tribe in West Africa ) would invariably say that an ornament worn on the wrist needs no service of the mirror to be seen. Also, that a Dibia (fetish priest) has a cut above another Dibia only with a tuft of charm. So far, my experience here has been satisfactory. Biko! (Please) I'm chuffed. Kudos to the inventors of this virtual platform! This place is amazing out-and -out. Steemit indeed has the charm. The difference is clear.

About Myself. FB_IMG_15217555867990271.jpg

My name is Chinagorom Chris Ikenna. I'm from Imo state, located in the South Eastern region of Nigeria. I'm in my early twenties. I was introduced to Steemit by some pals on Facebook. I dilly-dallied as a result of the fact that I was rounding off my Degree programme in the University. All in all, I'm happy to be here finally.

Academic Life FB_IMG_15217532025936084.jpg

Precisely, last October, I graduated from the University of Uyo, Nigeria where I finished as a Communication Expert, Journalist and Reporter with a bias in Public Affairs Reporting, Science and Technology Reporting and Environmental Reporting. I was recipient to a couple of awards for my outstanding performance in school.

My Teaching Career FB_IMG_15217556821066122.jpg

While waiting for a mandatory national youth service programme in my country Nigeria for graduates , I was recently, accepted to teach Literature and History in a secondary school in my city. This isn't my first time of teaching though . Well, I'm potty about African history, culture and traditions. I'm cinching my belt to share with you all about the rich cultural heritage and age-long customs and traditions of African tribes most especially those of Nigeria.

Hobbies FB_IMG_15217596161511340.jpg

Reading tops the list. I read a whole lot. I'm a voracious reader who loves books a great deal. In order to encourage the dwindling reading culture in my country, I formed a social media based book club where we source for books, share them amongst ourselves , read and discuss them. Bookified is the name of the online book club.

Next is travelling. I have travelled the length and breadth of Nigeria. I will also be sharing my expeditions and adventures here on my blogFB_IMG_15217556160197330.jpg

I equally love cooking, singing, vegging out watching movies and soaps. FB_IMG_15217533719288586.jpg

I crave your indulgence to support me in anyway you can. I'm yet to familiarise with the whole caboodle in this community. Any advice ? Please, bring it on. I'm susceptible to mistakes. Don't look down on me but rather STEEMITISE me. Yeah ! Point me the Steemit way.

Hello, Chinagorom, and Welcome to Steemit.

As a teacher, it sounds like you have lots to offer on this platform, and you'll probably find a ready audience.

Starting out here is a bit daunting, but you learn as you go. Start creating some high-quality posts, and then simply keep doing so. That's one of the tricks to success here on Steemit.


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!

I'm encouraged @majes.tytyty. I'm following you right away. I will do as you said

Great. One more point. Submitting photos in the various photo contests is a great way to earn a bit of Steem and to attract followers. Here are links to 2 contests.
