We are glad to announce Steem Beginner, a Wordpress powered blog and resource site dedicated to the promotion the Steem Blockchain.
What is Steem Beginner?
Vision and mission
Our vision is to become the gateway to the Steem community. We want to promote Steem through competitive blogging, offering diverse content including interviews, press releases, opinion, news, analysis, reviews and more.
Steem is a social blogging Blockchain, yet if you should Google "Beginner's guide to Steem", interesting you will not find anything from Steemit or Busy.
Of course not! Surely you will find something, see for your self:
We got just one post. Maybe it's enough, if you visit the user's profile, you will find out that that same post has been blogged three times. One version of it get it labeled by @cheetah as plagiarized content, and manual investigations confirm they all are.
Forgive me for being so nosy; we need to get our stuff right. This doesn't look good:
- The only post on Google about getting started on Steem is about getting started on Steemit(not Steem)
- Published by a user who stopped using Steem 2 years ago
- The post is not even original content
Steem deserves better. We can do better. We can give Steem prospects a better way about the Blockchain than having to scavenge articles written by outsiders from blogs or indie authors on Steemit.
All the information you get is from general cryptocurrency blogs. We want to change that. We want the Steem community and industry to its own authority site which tells its story.
People do not have to go to random sites to learn about Steem from bloggers who are not Steemians. Steem Beginner is built by Steemians for Steemians and prospects.
Products and services
- Beginner information and guides
Blogging on news, reviews, interviews and more
- Market links and resources
- Other upcoming products
We took care to craft the site beautifully for Steem, so please take time to explore it and give us your feedback. There may be a few places we might get our facts or stats wrong, or even made typos errors.
Steem beginner is built on Wordpress, for various reasons:
- hosting affordability
- developing ease due to the availability of plugins and themes
- easy maintenance of the site
- and to access the Steem Press curation service.
Developing and maintaining a custom-built site is costly in terms of time, resources and mone. Open sourcing still does not garner the needed maintainers. Whiles hosting in the cloud requires expensive monthly DB setup, server setup and other fees.
With WP, these challenges become minimal. Also, we have the Steem Press curation service which might support the work of our authors. We are keeping things small, as all of our projects are bootstrap financed.
Support and financing
As evident on the site, we are offering free promotion via listing to several Steem projects and initiatives. Our pages are full of recommendations to Steem apps and services.
We will keep it that way for as long as possible. however, if we do receive any partnership or sponsorship offer from any Steem venture, we would offer them preferential exposure.
We are actively seeking partners, typically Steem power delegators and those who could give up a >$1 vote a day on just one post.
With their support, we will be able to fund the site's expenses as well as support our authors. In return, we would promote the sponsors to our readers and community.
Everyone could be our sponsors, from a witness to Steem investor to a bid bot. See our sponsor's page for more information.
Steem Press integration
We would be publishing with Steem Press, hopefully, our posts may benefit from their curation service.
Building the project together
We are seeking one project manager to manage the project. If you have a good experience in the WP industry and can testify to it with a blog, please contact.
We are also seeking one editor, someone who basically proof-reads all posts by author and is the final publisher. Anyone with good English language skills is welcome.
About the project
Their continued support has brought us this far.
