For those of you who consecutively follow my posts, you’ll know that I run a project called the Steemit Success Initiative, which is a project that aims to help Steemit grow and develop as a platform, by helping its users learn more about Steemit, how it works, and how to do well on the platform.
This project has been exciting to run so far, and I have received a lot of positive feedback from a lot of beginners, as well as some excellent support from many people, especially those who have been upvoting, commenting and resteeming my posts. I also have to give a special thank you to those who delegated their Steem Power to the project, who I will list out below. Without your support, running the project would be impossible!
Slowing Things Down a Bit
As you may have noticed, I have been slowing my posts down a bit lately: not by choice, I have just been absolutely hectic between other work-related projects that I have been doing. I have been thinking about the Steemit Success Initiative a lot, what I want from it, and what I want it to be for other people - I have been trying to figure out how to best incorporate the ethos of the SSI into a physical entity, and it has been difficult. The more I think about it, the more that I want it to be a physical place for people to come and learn all about Steemit, and cryptocurrencies/financial sovereignty in general. Because of this, I have decided to slow things down a bit on Steemit with regards to the Steemit Success Initiative, and instead focus on actually making progress on what I want to do, as opposed to posting about it.
What Does this Mean?
Essentially, my end goal is to create a “Bloggers hub” in Dublin. I want to make a place where beginners and experienced bloggers can meet up, share ideas, work on posts together and learn. The idea is that there will be two or three experienced Steemians in the hub at set times and beginners will come in for a specified length of time to learn all about blogging on Steemit. Then, there will be a writers hub, where people can go to share ideas, write posts together, and help each other grow in general on Steemit.
Things are very much in the idea phase at the moment, but in essence, I will spend the coming months looking for people to partner with for the project, building up a course curriculum for beginners, working out the financials of it and more. Things may seem quiet on my page regarding the project, but I will still be writing an SSI post every week or so in order to update you all with what I am doing. Apart from that, I have decided to start writing about ICOs on my blog. Considering I work full time in this space, I decided that it makes sense to write about them; I will likely just give an overview of a few ICOs per week, to show people how many there are out there, and start educating you on the different ways the blockchain can be used in different industries!
How Will it Work?
To be completely upfront, funding the SSI’s project will be expensive. I will be working with others on the project (at least I hope others will get involved!), but the idea is that in order to fund the project, I will get delegated SP from others. In a few weeks, I will be doing a full post outlining the project, how much money we will need, who else is involved, and how much SP we are looking for. In the meantime, I am aiming to get 5,000 more SP delegated in order to support the project, and once we hit 15,000 SP in delegations, I will create an account (the account name is TBC) where I will send 75% of the money made from my personal posts, to start saving for the SSI Bloggers hub. I will be keeping 20% in order to support myself, and I will give away 5% in a competition every 2 weeks. These numbers are subject to change, but that’s what I’m thinking at the moment.
Thanks for Reading
Thank you for reading this quick update, and I really hope that you are all as excited as I am about this. Like I said, I will do a full post about this in a few weeks, when I have everything more well thought out, but I felt that it was important to let you know what I plan to do on Steemit. I will still be upvoting undervalued content, and posting some helpful posts for beginners, but will mainly focus on ICOs for the next few weeks, while I organise everything else regarding the SSI. Oh and one more thing – the project will be rebranding with a new, updated logo, new colour scheme and more in the coming weeks!
