Help Me Learn To Use Steemit ProperlysteemCreated with Sketch.

in steemit •  7 months ago


In 2018 I'm not going to stray away from asking for help from other people.

Here's my first 'help request' story.

I'm asking you to help me make Steemit work for me and all of you too.

I must admit I don't fully understand how the platform works.

No matter how much research I did on it, I'm still confused.

Power up, power down, Steem, Steem power, dollars, rewards, D Tube, etc.

It's all quite confusing to me.

I would like to develop a 'Steem team' from this point onwards.

I want to work together to make this a successful publishing experience for us all.

Let's have a discussion on this thread on what the best way to do that would be.

I know that Steem works and can work for everyone, but would love to know how to use it properly.

I welcome all suggestions, advice and proposals in comments.

Also, if you would prefer to get in touch with me over email please email me at

We also run a crypto and blockchain community at which I invite you to join too.

Hello, this is an amazing idea. I came here few days ago and I am still quite confused. I'd like to know what does "witness" mean or how contests work :) Hope I 'll find someone to explain this little amazing (but techy) thing :)

  1. A Witness is basically a computer/server with a Steem account that verifies the transactions on the blockchain. It's similar to bitcoin mining. People want to be voted as a witness because you can make $$. It takes a LOT of votes to become a witness - I wouldn't worry about it too much right now.

  2. Contests are created/run by other steem users. They can be a bit cheesy as most people only run these contests to get more followers/votes... that's why they always ask you to resteem/follow/vote etc. be weary of wasting your time with contests if it just looks like the person is looking for a payday


Oh, thank you very much for such a long and useful comment :) you made my day :)


Hey @dreamdiary, I followed you and looking forward to exchanging interactions with you in 2018. Thank you for coming back to me and engaging in this post.


Thank U for posting this topic one more time :)

Hey Jason, if you are just starting out I suggest you check out @steemengineteam

It's a vote/follower/content sharing community that just started but has been growing pretty rapidly. It's the best way to get more exposure.

There are also a few discord groups that you could probably find in the community section.


Followed that too. Going to look around to see what I can find there. Thanks for sharing and commenting.

Please help us also develop and grow our Steem account too.
