A Curated Guide For SteemIt New Users: My Journey To Becoming A Better Steemit User. Your Recommendations Are Highly Needed.

in steem •  3 years ago  (edited)

As StreemIt goes mainstream, there would be several new users who are complete newbies. Those who know next to nothing about StreemIt.

When I first joined Steemit, I only had a vague idea about cryptocurrencies (I'm creating a curated guide for that too) but I loved the idea of a social network that rewards its users.

I spent hours moving from one post to another, like a search bot, trying to get a hang of how the whole Steemit revolution works. And I'm still learning.

This guide would provide new users an all-in-one guide to becoming better creators and contributors. Without the stress of jumping through links.

What finally pushed me to create this post was posts' replies like this by @cryptoctopus :

wow, that was an awesome post! I wish I could bookmark it and link to it whenever a new noob come in. :-)

And this by @steemrollin.
Great post! I've been around a while, but you communicated the what & why better than I could. Welcome aboard the Steem train!
See. Even Long term users would benefit from this.

My plan is to update this post as soon as new recommendations are being made by you, the expert. :)

Lets Get the Steem Rollin' :

Here are some official resources:

a. Markdown of the Steemit Whitepaper by @liondani https://steemit.com/steem/@liondani/steem-whitepaper-download

b. An interview with Ned Scott, CEO of Steemit. A must read if you want a watered down explanation of the whole idea behind Steemit. I found the conversation very interesting.

Thanks, cryptoctopus. The link is in the original post. Would remove other posts under rewards if they contradicts the new changes. Also, is there a way to edit the summary? Only the tag, title and post sections are available for edit.

Great collection of links. Thumbs up!

Many thanks, this platform is amazing and this is great help to start.

Thanks, stellabelle. Glad I was of help.

Good summary, sure that it helps many people, regards and spirit!

My first recommendation would be to fix the formatting of this post.
For plain text there is no need to use a font style meant for section headers.

·

Thanks. Fixed?

Yes, it's much more readable now. Thank you.

We need this. Voting trusting you keep formatting and updating this post!

Currently the first paragraph is written twice :p

Thanks. I've fixed it. I'm always on the lookout for more helpful articles as they come up. Would appreciate a reminder or two though. :)

This is great and detailed reference to other resources as well. Thanks!

Wow. Thanks. That's my evening's reading sorted.

Great info here. As a new user, this site and its functions are difficult to grasp.

Thanks for this! Will be reading some of the links. :)
