The best advice I can give you for making money on Steemit is this.
See which type of article get the most interaction and write more of them.
Interact with people who comment on your blog posts.
Comment on other peoples blogs.
Follow others whose blogs you like.
Don’t put rubbish content on the platform. By rubbish, I mean blog posts which have little information or less than 100 words.
Give value to others and your reputation and rewards will grow.
I have written a full article on starting with Steemit and how to set up your account which you can view below.
