10 Useful Steem Tools to Help You Succeed on Steemit!

in steemit •  7 months ago

I've been a Steemian for about a month and it has been a very steep learning curve. I've put together a list of ten useful tools that I found. I use these almost everyday to help me compose a nicer looking post or analyze how I'm doing on the platform.

I'd like to share these with other plankton and minnows in the hopes that they will find value here.

  • Steem Now This site shows a lot of useful information about your or another's account. Things like latest upvotes, curation and author rewards, and your latest post with a total of the pending payouts. Lots of information in a very readable format.

  • Who Mentioned Me Have you ever wondered if you are being noticed? If your user name has been mentioned it will show up in this list. It's a good way to check on when your user name is mentioned. Without this tool you can miss a lot!

  • Steemd The way to use this, is to insert your username behind the URL steemd.com/@your username_here/. Have you ever had that annoying bandwidth error? This is where you can check on that. It shows your voting weight and your voting power too. The column on the right shows all the actions that have taken place on your account and the times they occurred. This is a very useful tool.

  • Steemdb This is very similar to Steemd but with many more options to explore. It is a blockchain explorer. I find that Steemd has more up to date information but this has many more features.

  • Ask Steem This is a great tool to search articles on the steemit platform! Want to know how to wrap words around your images? Use wordwrap in the search string! POW... Several Steemit post to choose from. I have been using this to find post describing how to write the code to make my post look better. I'm still learning! Markdown isn't so tough!

  • Steem Chat This is where you can find help. There are lots of people here that are more than willing to help with your questions. Don't be afraid to ask!

  • Discord You'll have to sign up for this or perhaps accept an invitation to a discord channel in one of the genres you are interested in. I'm partial to #Woodworking on discord. It's another way to connect with those with similar interest.

  • Free Images There are several sites that offer free images for blogging UnSplash, is my favorite but there is Pexels and Giphy for gifs and stickers. A search for more free images will turn up several sites. I'd recommend using Ask Steem to find post on where to find more.

  • Steem Bot Tracker This is the tool you have got to have when you decide to invest in yourself to promote your post. Use caution when using this, not all bids are profitable and using those bots that accept bids on post older than 3.5 days is extremely risky on account of @grumpy cat. (see my previous post)

  • SteemTools This site contains a list of 168 different tools you can look through that do different task! There are a ton of talented coders making new tools for Steemians everyday!

These are my ten favorites. If you know of anything to share please leave a comment.

I hope you find this list useful and,

CARRY ON!

Thank you!

I also check SteemNow often.

I check steemd sometimes.

I have an account with steemchat and discord but no enough time for it.
I am always on mobile.

I haven't used the "Who Mentioned Me", it doesn't work on my old iPhone.

I am not using bidbots. I appreciate upvotes even if their value is 0.00 LOL

Thanks for the information! Very helpful indeed! Carry On!

Great tools, i use them all. But you did not mention steem.supply yet! :) http://steem.supply

·

On account of I did not know about it! Thanks for the heads up! Very useful!

How about @ginabot, most of the services of what you listed is already active with ginabot, and it will always notify you about those.

·

Dude! I checked out gina! She is way cool...thanks for that heads up! I send a SBD to @neander-squirrel too! He did a fine job on that project!

·
·

Yep, @ginabot made it easier to know what's happening to my posts. It kinda changed my habits on steemit. I used to always open my account to know who upvoted my posts. Now I just have to click a link to my post or comment whenever something's up. Thanks to @neander-squirrel for inventing this kind of service for steemit!

for me Steemd, it's very good so I can follow everything that happens in my account. Excellent data Friend why I rethink this publication. I leave you my last Post

An absolute huge thank you,

for posting such increasingly important information 👌✨❗

Really useful post. I joined Steemit earlier this year but have only just started trying to understand it properly...this was very helpful. Thanks.
