The Newbie

in #steem4 years ago

Hello, best regards to all!

My name is Mélany, I am 26 years old, I am Colombian but at the moment I am living in the United States, I am an Agroecological engineer.

One of my biggest passions in life is traveling, since it allows me to know geography more easily, I love meeting new people, new incredible places, new cultures and different ways of thinking.

Another of my passions is music, not only listening, but also making music, I am still in the process of learning but I love practicing guitar, ukulele, quena (Andean instrument) and everything related to culture.

As you can see, I am new to the platform and I try to familiarize myself with it since I intend to use it constantly; the topics that I would like to talk about and share are personal development issues, and some entertainment, such as travel, for example, so I hope you like the posts I'll be uploading.

See you around


Welcome to steemit!

Here is some information every newbie should know:

  • The value of an upvote is related to how much Steem Power the upvoter holds, as well as the current market price for the STEEM cryptocurrency coin.

  • Upvotes are not infinite, but they recharge. The more upvotes a person uses, the less it will be worth next time. On average, each person can give 10 full upvotes per day, because it's also how much upvotes recharge daily. People have to pick between many posts to decide what they're going to upvote, often choosing something they like but also taking profits into consideration. If someone doesn't upvote you, they could be waiting for their voting to recharge.

  • Your free account started with a borrowed 15 Steem Power. As you earn from your posts and comments, that will be taken away until you're standing on your own feet in the platform.

  • Remember to both give and take. If people only want to take away from the platform, the STEEM coin will eventually be worth nothing, because then everyone wants to sell while noone would be willing to buy.

  • If you run into posting limitations, that means you need more Steem Power. It's like a "bandwidth". The more you hold, the more you can do. It recharges, but slowly if you don't have much SP.

  • Steem Power can be bought, but it can also be delegated (borrowed/lent) using a steemit command. It can be undone by using a similar command too, so the delegator is in complete control.

  • You can check those bandwidth and voting metrics on the steemnow website.

  • Follow me, @felipejoys (click), if you like posts about gaming.

I have attached a picture from the steemnow website below so you can see what it's all about. Note: I don't own the website.

Welcome to the SteemIt Community.

Hello! Welcome to Steemit. What on Earth is an Agroecological Engineer? I'll have to look that up. How did you end up in the USA from Columbia?

Well, answering your questions, Agroecology is a relatively new scientific discipline, which, compared to conventional agronomy, is based on the application of the concepts and principles of ecology to the design, development and management of sustainable agricultural systems. And I'm studying English in the US

Sustainability is very important. We definitely need to work better to make agricultural systems that do not harm the environment and also still produce the amount of food required. Chemicals like Round Up should not be used either. Thanks for the reply and added information!
