First month on steemit.com - my personal experience.

in steemit •  2 years ago

I discovered the steemit.com site at the end of July and started to try this amazing platform.
I started from zero with no value in account .

First week - I wrote my introduction post ($0,3) and some comments. In this process I learned a lot. I found out than I’m a minnow and there are whales.
I learned what is voting power and how is upvote calculated :)
I made a lot of comments, I think around 100 or 200 in first week and was very active because I wanted to receive my first money in 7 days.

Second week was the week of discovering upvoting bots. I found out about @minnowbooster, @randowhale and @drotto bots. They gave me first boost to appear in hot section in some tags. So my posts started to receive from zero to 10-20 views and it is an amazing feeling because I saw that my work started to be seen ;)
In this week I also found about the poker league of steemit @spl and registered in their site http://www.lucksacks.com and started to play some poker. I won few freerolls and received around 10 sbd. It was amazing because I could use them to upvote my posts and to exchange it for more steempower. So my journey slowly began gaining speed.

Third week - It was amazing! First I discovered about delegated power and I bought some steempower from @minnowbooster at 18% and 24% apr and my like boosted from zero to 15 cents!
After that I started to gain some connections and curation rewards .
I got the first resteem on my post by @oldtimer and received $18 on my post. So connections with veterans of this platform mean a lot! Thanks @oldtimer for resteeming my post. It was a great experience:)

Last week of my first month - I steadily worked on more quality comments because 2-3 words comments do not give any value to post creator. I started to earn more from commenting. My earning from comments moved to around $40 sbd per week . Which I discovered by checking the site steem.supply
This gave me more motivation to produce more quality posts and comments.

I would like to mention about curation reward. After I leased steem power from minnowbooster, I did not know how curation rewards work. I had received like 5 cent from first week. I thought its 25% , but I received only 1% reward from my upvotes. I was surprised but then I discovered that we need to wait 15 minutes before upvote for 50% curation reward and 30 minutes for ~99% curation reward. After that I started to look at not immediately posted content but instead the ones that were posted a minimum of 15+ minutes ago and this helped my curation rewards skyrocket from 5 cent to 1.5 Steem power in a few days!

Overall I am learning every day something new from steemit and this platform gives me motivation to work harder every day!

I hope you found something interesting in this report of my first month. Hopefully my second month will be more amazing :)

P.S. Estimated Account Value $161.36

Great informative post. Upvoted

Not only is this a post, but I would rather say a tutorial to newbies like me and so many more. I've been struggling too but I somehow am managing o sail through the harsh winds and unsteady waters

·

i checked your other comments try to contribute more to topic starter , because you love like to use some basic words like thank you and followed you, people see this too many times per day, so just use your head to be more successful

Very helpful...thanks for sharing

You have done very well for yourself. This is just awesome. I also am treading the same path as you, and also discovering skilled ways of making extra bucks on steemit.

I particularly love reading interesting posts and making lengthy meaningful comments on them. The response i usually get from their authors always make me feel so good, even better than what i earn from their upvotes. I think that is a great way of earning here on steemit, by adding value to posts through comments.

I am still exploring the boosters, and infact your post has given me guidelines to venture into some areas of steemit like @randowhale and @psl which i will definitely explore and see how i can benefit from them as well.

I am definitely bookmarking your post, its a classic post which must be re-read often and shared with mentees to help them in the path of growth...

Thanks so much! But let me also leave you with this additional earning strategy, which i find adds value to the steemit experience over time. Here it is: Please accept this gift

·

ye its great platform for newcomers, you will receive your first money in few days and your journey will be more easier and faster )

·
·

Thank you! I'm looking forward to it

Thanks for the down to earth post. There are many lessons to learn from your one month experience here on Steemit. Your short journey sounds like many months but I believe with hard work, a lot can be achieved in short time. Congratulations.

·

for someone this journey was like pf nothing , but for me it was hard work and feeling of success :)
i hope in future i will learn more and share my experience with others.

·
·

Anyone new in Steemit will always appreciate such encouraging words:)

Thanks for sharing your experience as I can see your experience is much worth than mine, maybe is because i didn't invest in Steem Power... Best of luck !

·

you dont need to invest in steempower at first, even with comments you can earn your first bucks and then invest them ;) so just hard work

·
·

Sometimes the upvotes in your comments are based on luck or how much followers do you have and not based on the content of your comments. =/

·
·
·

even if sometimes you need to have luck and sometimes you are not gaining even cent, you can check successful people profiles and where they comments and try to do same , even if you still receive zero dont give up and continue to work :)

Thanks for the support mate :)

Very informative, I am a new member of steemit and still confused about almost everything. Lol

·

ye its hard for newcomers ,but need to work everyday and learn something new everyday, so your growth will be faster every day.

·
·

Yep, no pain no gain

I joined Steemit around the same time and still have a lot to learn myself. (I planned on making a similar post)

I have seen these paid upvote / resteem bots like @minnowbooster and @randowhale everywhere but have not used them myself because I have no idea if they are concidered good or toxic for the steemit community.

Lets get even higher in our second month here, Steem Power all the way!

·

this bots are good for newcomers to gain first followers and to be in hot section, but they are bad for abusers :)
so it can be good and bad, ye its nice to have someone who started in same time so we can compete and share our experience :)

you worked hard and make yourself successful ,,,we also try that..

·

its just beginning of journey, hope you will have some success ;)
