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.
