WHO ARE THE

Power House Creatives _night mode.png

The Power House Creatives is a discord community of individuals who are committed to producing content which adds value across multiple platforms. We are STRONGLY focused on supporting our fellow members individual growth as well as offering support to those that are still trying to get ahead. We are a CLOSE KNIT community of individuals, each with our own strengths, passions and input, yet ALL willing to go the extra mile for our family members... WHY? - because, simply put - we CARE about one another and MANY HANDS make light work! - THAT is what FAMILY is about! - To infinity and beyond...

text15.png

INTERESTED IN JOINING THE PHC FAMILY?

As most of you already know our community is closed. This does not mean that we are trying to keep people out or that we ignore those who aren’t members – it simply means that we are focused on keeping our standards of content high and our member commitment higher. I think if nothing else, we have proven those two qualities to the Steemisphere over the last year and even more so in the last seven days.

I am not going to sugar-coat things for anybody, because it would not make any sense whatsoever, nor would it serve anybody fruitfully - long-term. Our community is incredibly proactive - and DRIVING the success and growth of the people within it is our FUNDAMENTAL PURPOSE, because this is how they are able to do the same in return for other individuals in communities beyond our own! Our reach extends WAY beyond our own walls and this is one of the primary reasons why it is important to ALL OF US that each of our members are able to hold our flag high wherever they may roam.

We work hard, we play hard - we support one another through thick and thin, we know whats going on in our "3D" lives and no matter what it is - we are there for each other! Yes, there are daily responsibilities and obligations. Yes, there are things that fly within our walls and things that definitely don’t. Yes, we require quite a bit from you as an individual but you get it tenfold in return and ANY ONE of our members will gladly testify to this. Absolutely EVERYTHING is catered for and considered… including those times when you will NOT be able to fulfill your obligations. It simply requires the following of our procedures, which once you have grasped – are not complicated at all - I promise.

Everybody in our community jokes about my “boot” because they know that there are certain things that never were and never will be tolerated within our walls… and when they surface, those people will very quickly meet my infamous “boot” sending them out the door – or at least showing them that it is open. A few such things would be the likes of: not doing what you promised to do when joining, not being a team player, plagiarism, spamming, causing trouble with other members etc. These are all no-brainers really, so should not be much of a shock or challenge to anyone who is actually on Steemit (or any other platform) to make it a better place for everyone!

We may be a relatively small collective, but we have approx. 118 members from over 30 countries and that continues to grow. Most of our members are also key players in some of Steemits other highly regarded and supportive discord communities and initiatives - and all of us at “home” know without question or doubt that every single one of our members will make us proud with whatever they do – wherever they go – and that is precisely how we intend to keep it. Simple as that! No, this kind of “ethos” does not work for everyone – and that is perfectly fine - Each to their own. The people who have done the “putting in” are the ones that understand what they “get out” of it all ;)

So, if I have not scared you away yet, or if the above info excites you (even better) and you would still like to put in an application to join our fantabulous and VERY crazy little family… then by all means – hop into our applications server and do the necessary.

YEAH BABY YEAH - I WANT TO APPLY

Absolutely @zekepickleman! And I have been thinking a lot about something that @simplymike said to me the other night about focusing on keeping the people who are already here, motivated and educated enough to stay... and I suppose every little bit helps. :)

Im not new but i do feel lost. :D

Hey you. :P

·

I may be eligible to join this Power House Community. But regardless of that, I love what you're saying. I believe in rules as much as I believe in walls. I will be checking out the PHC Discord. Keep up the good work. Upvoted. Resteemed. I'm not new here. Been on Steem since 2017. I like welcoming new users. I blog about my life. I write about other things.

One of the best ways to start connecting with people and gaining some traction for your blog - is to jump onto discord. If you have not yet downloaded the app (on pc or mobile) then you can do so here:

Once you have downloaded the app and registered yourself, there is a fantastic server run by @xcountytravelers, @thekittygirl, @brittandjosie and many other fantastic individuals. The entire purpose is to connect and guide steem newbies. So they are there to answer your questions as well as connect you with other great Steemians.

You can hop on to that server here: https://discord.gg/DbcwbMJ

This will get you going and connecting with people and blogs that you enjoy and you will grow from there. :) You might also want to add yourself a profile picture so that people can get a sense of who they are engaging with :)

Let me know how it goes and if you have any other thoughts or questions :)

Ok can you please help me to where can i change my profile picture?

It is under the settings tab on the far right next to your wallet... if you struggle to get it right, it might be easier to get assistance in the chat room of the discord server that I sent you the link to above as you can chat live rather than exchanging comments.

Looking for some support on my blog , thanks .

1st, I would suggest that you start writing a #freewrite a day at the @freewritehouse. You get the daily prompt from @mariannewest. 2nd, stop upvoting your own posts, you only have 10 100% upvotes a day, don't waste one on yourself. 3rd, try to win some SBI units in free contests. @hbib 🤞

Thanks for replying me
Well why should I stop up voting myself ? What harm it does ?

Yep I was thinking about the freewritehouse but I didn't manage to know exactly what it will give or how ?

I have been reading a lot of contest my mind blow up

Since your vote is only worth .001 cent right now it doesn't help with your post worth. But if you use it on someone else's post and make a good comment, you might get noticed and a new follower with a higher upvote.

love seeing people offering help to new steemians and I love seeing people posting via share2steem

·

Appreciate the positive feedback @cflclosers, thank you and yes - @share2steem rocks!

@jaynie, great post here. Didn't realize there are so many lost souls here. ;) Maybe should have a new post: Lost in Steem? We can come and help. ;)

·

yeah, it is a state of affairs that really needs to be dealt with. I think I might do something like this on a regular basis... I think its good to let people know on a regular basis that there are those of us out there who are willing to assist in any way we can :)

Same as @roxane and @silentscreamer... not new, but feeling lost.

Don't know what a token is...

Wish there was a DAPP out there for comic creators because the steemit platform is terrible for that.

·

Try using discord more because it is somewhat necessary element to engage more with Steem community and join relevant Art/Comics groups then you might feel little less lost, consider to join #PowerHouseCreatives which is must one

As @jaynie said, give @ntopaz a try, other specific communities/initiatives you might find interesting are:

1- @ArtZone
2- Trial by Comics contest by @kommienezuspadt
3- Msp Music & Art Curation Contest by @isaria

Regarding token, they are First/Beta stage of specific Cryptocurrency/CryptoCoin. Their primary purpose is to be sold for fiat or cryptocurrency in order to fund the blockchain project. Later on, they can take the shape of full-fledged coin after they implement their road-map.
Some Dapps funtional on Steem blockchain are issusing tokens but right now there is not one for Art/Comics yet.

·
·

Thanks for the input @bluemist :)

·

Hi @sidekickmatt,

Sorry to hear that. I have had a look at your work... it is great!
It is not specifically for comic creators but for creative artists all round - have you looked into @ntopaz?
Here is a link: https://www.stateofthedapps.com/dapps/ntopaz

I think you might find that you meet a more appropriate niche audience posting to steem via that route.

Also, may I suggest that you put in an application to join our #powerhousecreatives community - The blurb and application link is at the foot of this post.

Hope to see you in there. Let me know if you give @ntopaz a try and how it goes. - One note though, just be sure to be able to validate and authenticate all your work if you are publishing it on other platforms too as they are quite strict about plagiarism etc.

With regards to the tokens side of things, @bluemist could probably answer any specific questions you may have :)

I hope this info helps!
Do not hesitate to shout again if needs be x

Help me! I'm so lost! What is Steem Wallet?

No comment. Lol

Keep up the good work darling.

And thank you for your support too xxx

Some times I don't know how to comment

Posted using Partiko Android

Hi @shinersfamily :)

You mean you don't know what to say in response to certain posts?

·

If it’s a good article and it inspires you, you’ll know what to comment and it will come naturally. If not, maybe it wasn’t the one what made you think that day... I believe it’s not the point to comment for commenting sake but for saying something what adds value and starts a conversation. I feel like I have no idea what to say, I skip it and go to next article what might invoke something in me.

Hey, thank you for the offering! I was wondering what the best sports accounts were here on steemit? thanks for the help!

·

Hi :)

My pleasure. Just to clarify what you are referring to... do you mean great sports relate blog feeds or sports related dapps and communities? or all? haha :)

I am not a new user of steem blockchain. This assistance for the steemians in need of help is great. Thank you for sharing all this valuable information. I am still learning.
Peace

·

And many thanks to you too for the positive input. Much appreciated :)

Ha! Let me just have a slightly different approach here. I am new but I’m definitely not lost. I keep finding amazing people and amazing initiatives and amazing content every single day and it inspires me. And if I’m lost, I’m lost in the real world, but not here. I have a vision and my execution might not be the best nor polished yet, but I’m trying and that’s what counts, doesn’t it? I am grateful of everything I’ve learned so far and for the welcome I have received.

I can light a torch and wave it in the darkness to all those people lost 🔦 there’s people here to help you: follow the light and the sound of peoples voice and chatter!

We are used to leaning on others, looking to others to guide and help us, and without this support we feel confused, afraid, we do not know what to think, how to act. The moment we are left to ourselves, we feel lonely, insecure, uncertain. From this arises fear, does it not?

·

Well I suppose it is a bit of a double edged sword... what circumstance breeds (be it fear or courage) is entirely dependant on you as an individual. In this instance i would say "hesitance" is a great player... and having an open support line is of great value.

Salutations! JaiChai here.
