My top tips after 9 months living on Steem & Steem Dollars 👣

in steemit •  8 months ago

Yesterday I sat on this beach with tears of gratitude because now I am not just surviving on Steemit, I am making much more than I can spend, finally opening the door for investment. The whole crypto market has come alive in the last month and there are so many opportunities to buy large quantities while the price is still low.

I will be giving you my top three undervalued coins in this article.

What's my story?

I am a London born filmmaker dedicated to travelling the world with my family. We came to Bali two years ago for a film job and never left... because in August 2016 I discovered Steemit and started learning as much as I could about this brave new world.

In ten days we are moving to the South of France where we plan to acquire a mobile home and drive around Europe into Northern Africa, all thanks to Steemit & the investments I have made with the Steem & SBD.

I had no knowledge of crypto prior to August 2016.

One and a half years to completely change my life

I have worked very hard over the last year to establish myself on this platform (currently ranked 115 in rep) so I am not going to tell you it was easy. But I am going to tell you that it is possible to turn Steemit into your main source of income if you commit yourself now during these early days before this platform goes mainstream.

What are my top tips (for content producers)?

I do not claim to have the answer for everyone, as each person must find their own way here but if you follow my tips they will put you in a good position to find your own voice and set your sights firmly upon the desired goal.

- Post regularly

It doesn't have to be every day, but it does have to be every week. Building a following requires consistency. And regularly reminding them of your awesomeness is an important step towards achieving this. Personally I aim to post twice a day, one quote from my good old friend Abraham and one article written from my heart. I don't always achieve this, but that is what I aim for.

- Consistent quality

Feel out how many hours per day you have for Steemit and establish a precedent... then stick to it! Make your content relevant, quote any sources clearly, fill your post with strong images, breaking it up to simplify the reading process. Some people just skim read so bear this in mind when creating the headings for each section.

- Think outside the box

Think not what steemit can do for you but what you can do for steemit. What are we missing here? Fill in the gaps with your enthusiasm. @steemshop, @steemholidays & @charitysteemit are all examples of my own exploration outside the box.

- Post promotion in steemit.chat & discord

I know it can be painful to post promote after finishing an article but it is an important opportunity not to be missed. Many tell me it makes no difference to their pay-out. Whilst this may be true now, it only takes one Whale who resonates with your work to change your fortune forever.

- Thumbnail, title & first line

You have three opportunities to draw people in to your article. So, use them wisely! Get across as much info as you can without repeating yourself. You can see at the top of this post how I enjoy taking a photo from my life and infusing it with the steemit branding always reminding my FB followers where I have gone! Sometimes I will add a few words to expand on my message. If you are going to add words make sure you have as few as possible and that they are readable in the thumbnail.

Here is my last 'main' article which is a good example of how to maximise these three opportunities.

- Become a steemit evangelist!

The people you help now will become the people who help you in the future. One of the first things I did upon understanding the mechanics of steemit was to set up a Facebook group (aspiring steemit whales & dolphins) with the intention of helping others make the transition. The group is around 600 strong now and many whom I helped a year ago are now doing very well here.

In addition to this I gave a talk in the heart of Bali to a group of crypto enthusiasts. Sharing what I knew and encouraging people to join me.

- Remind your old world where you have gone!

Facebook & YouTube were my main platforms two years ago. So I changed my FB banner to look like this...

Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 07.05.33.png

...and made a bunch of YouTube films referring to steemit.

I also created a YouTube channel dedicated to helping others for free. See HERE

Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 07.27.52.png

- Start investing

As soon as you are able, start selling your SBD and perhaps some of your Steem to invest into the quickly growing marketplace. You can always put some Steem back into your account once you have expanded your holdings. Personally I use Bittrex & Binance to do my investing. These seem to cover most of the coins I am interested in.

This film tells you how to transfer to Bittrex.

Once you have sold for BTC you have a plethora of options available to you. Like I said the whole market is expanding right now so you will find it hard to go wrong, but it would be prudent to research your investment prior to buying. Ask yourself the following simple questions to ensure it is not a scam:

  • How long has the coin been around?

  • Is it growing in value?

  • Is it based on a solid idea, fulfilling a need?

  • Does it have a high volume of movement?

Screen Shot 2017-12-07 at 23.29.39.png

Three undervalued coins

Of course, no one can tell you the future with certainty but it is my feeling that the following three coins are worth snapping up before they shoot above a dollar. I could tell you why I believe in these coins but instead I am going to encourage you to do your own research.

  • Burst

  • Digibyte

  • Doge

All of these coins are available on Bittrex and currently under $0.15

Here are the graphs showing one day candles and the growth over the last month.

In conclusion

Steemit has transformed the way I live my life and it is my intention now to help as many people as I can experience this same freedom.

I am here to answer any questions should you have them.

Can you explain why do you think BURST DOGE and Digibyte have big potential. I understand that you intuition is good but maybe your prognosis is based on something else like fundamental analysis.

·

In truth I have a man on the inside with a much better knowledge than myself. He mentioning these coins to me for a year ago and I ignored him. Last month i check on them and couldn't believe how much they had grown. So, I went all in with 10,000 of each. You will find plenty of films on YouTube explaining why they are sound investments, each one very different reasons.

What my instinct tells me is that this gravy train can't last forever, so be ready to pull out and get it back into fiat. But for now... the only way is UP!

Great post and very inspirational - chock full of good tips and advice. I agree: Spread the word of Steemit far and wide!! It's an awesome journey ...

·

That which we give out comes back to us in spades ;)

Interesting. I am new and honestly super confused. I have blogs in several niches and people in all of them told me to come here. But I make a living off of those sites. Can I repost their content here? Also, do I have do invest to really make traction? I have played around here a bit, but am trying to see why I would do better here than I do with regular blogging.

·

If you're already doing well elsewhere, why would you change what you're doing?

Steem may be useful after you test it, but if you're getting results in a different area, you are trying to repair what's not broken. One of my friends tested SteemIt for a month and saw no results. Like you, he was doing well on his other sites. Only add SteemIt if you're seeing success on the platform. As you know, time is expensive - you never get it back.

So run a test. See if you can obtain results. If you have successful sites in niches, you should already have a good idea of what success looks like. No need to rebuild a wheel.

·
·

Testing for a bit is pretty much my plan. I figure I will post things here that don't fit well on my niche sites. Mostly travel posts and photography. But I was curious about reposting some related items as well. Mainly items that I think are good but do not perform as well as I think they deserve to perform on my other sites. But I don't want to confuse the plagiarism bots nor do I want to remove them entirely from my sites.

·
·
·

Personally I would give it 6 months as a test! I know time is precious but it is much better to be earning crypto than fiat. And it will be no problem using your existing blog to transfer here. Just make sure you quote your source!

·
·
·
·

Good to know. Thanks!!!!

·
·

The only thing I would add is this: I was making average on YouTube before Steemit and it took around 6months on Steemit before I was doing better here than YouTube. And now, a year on there is no question in my mind I made the right decision. The main reason is because I earn crypto every day now. Not fiat. So, this can be invested easily and grown much faster than the fiat...

Thanks Sam. You helped me get into Steem and just like you said, I am now helping others. ibaldibwent To steemfest because of you and am loving this social experiment. So much better than Facebook as the feeling here is one of helping others. Of corse it’s not perfect but it’s fun and interesting and think it’s evolving. Well have to wait and see.

·

Danny! It's always so great to see your words under my posts :)

Wish i had more time for curating and commenting under the work of others. It will be a more calm pace of life for me in France and for sure I will have more time.

Am so pleased you are feeling the awesomeness of this platform. It is very exciting times for all of us :)

Onward & Upward!!!

Awesome stuff here @samstonehill I hope one day to be as influential of a user such as yourself... I am confident that I can achieve this through hard work and dedication to the platform. I wish I would have heard of steemit much earlier, but at least I am here now, and things seem to be blasting off for steemit as a whole, so I really can't complain!

Really stoked to see you undervalue both DGB and DOGE bc I have recently added both of these coins to my portfolio.. maybe one day I will take some profits and invest back into my steemit acct bc I am definitely here for the long haul.... The more SP the better :-)

Have fun on your journey, much respect from @conradsuperb

·

You said it.... the more SP the better. It's great to earn from this platform but even better when we can help others do the same :)

And not to worry about your timing of entry here. We are still very much in the early days. Facebook was in Beta for a few years before it really kicked off...

·
·

I completely agree! Can't wait til my VP hits above a dollar... will be so much more rewarding for other users, as well as myself. I think 2018 is the year for steemit, we shall see ;-)

I can't think of a better "pay for performance" platform than Steemit. I've been reading so many posts of good people being able to pay for a full winter supply of feed for their farms, being able to move ahead with projects, putting a little toward their hobbies even. Am just amazed at the bigger picture and the unlimited potential we all have here.

Universal synchronicity brought me to the platform and the vibes will keep me here. Resteemed this post on, it is a gem.

·

Universal synchronicity brought me here too! I met a random guy in the jungle who told me about steemit. Without him I would most likely still be accepting the meagre rewards from my YouTube films.

Onward & Upward we fly together! 🌠

And to think Sam, when it comes to Steemit, we're just getting started. You will one day be able to look back at this quaint little time "when STEEM was only worth a few dollars." You'll be broadcasting live from your advanced Moonbase, while I'll finally have my UK golden visa. Glad you're doing well. It's good to have options, isn't it? I've got my Tesla all picked out. Though the Porsche Spyder looks good too.

·

haha! Love all these big dream we have now :)

I am banking on steem going $100 and beyond.... and the future is looking very Porsche-like indeed!

·

Someone really should take the whole Moon Lambos meme to the next level! I've yet to see any Moon Lambo graphic.

This is truly amazing. The point you reached is really inspiring and I hope to be in the position you are given more time...obviously the money isn't the only reason I am here, but its hard not to think about the idea of being able to live off of Steem entirely.

Hearing your story of making it to that point gives me hope that it could do that one day and keeps me dreaming :). Until I reach that point I'm going to keep enjoying others content as I have been and making content that I love making as well!

·

Sounds like you have a good plan there. The most important thing of all (which I completely forgot to mention!) is always enjoy the ride! If it ain't fun, you shouldn't be doing it.

Here's to the future!

·
·

Its been a blast so far! Quite an addicting journey too :).

enjoy that next chapter in your life man, can't wait for the videos from the road, that's gonna be something else! :)

·

Me too brother. I really miss making films every day. Seriously excited about getting back to that :)

And onto that open road of infinite possibilities...

@samstonehill, such a beautiful post right from the heart, so pure in content. You are a good soul. I have been away from steemit for last 5 months owing to personal tragedy. But guess it's time for me to pick up and start moving and get some good quality stuffs on steemit. Your post made my day. Thanks :)

·

Many thanks for your positive words. I do my best here to share my enthusiasm to inspire others. No question this platform has changed my life and opened the door to crypto world, which I know nothing about before.

Sorry to hear about your personal tragedy. I have seen many write from their hearts here expressing their feelings around tragedy. This can really help us 'get it out' and you will be surprised by how supportive this community can be :)

All the best to you my friend and see you around on Steemit!

I was thinking about almost every one of these points today! And evangelizing has been much easier with STEEM and SBDs doing what they've done over the last month. The future here is so exciting - thank you for this tutorial. Hopefully my new friends coming on board will need this!

·

My pleasure to provide this vital info. When I get back to France next week I will most likely start producing more regular tutorials on the YouTube site I mentioned. And yes, the future is very exciting indeed! 🎉

Great post!

As a complete noob to Steemit I worry about messing things up, almost daily when I interact on here...

Still I'm pretty excited about the future of this platform. And posts like this really helped me. This platform is pretty scary to newer members as we really aren't sure exactly what to do other than....Post and upvote lol And sometimes we even mess that up.

So thanks for sharing your journey. It is very much appreciated!

·

It won't be long before it's like riding a bike. Second nature. The great thing about this platform is that you can learn so much be reading the work of others. There are many here who seek to help the newcomers.

I am sure this time in a year you will be laughing :)

Man, thanks for this post. Still only finding my feet at present but so thankful for these type of posts.

What a life you are leading. It's the dream!

Only really getting into mining at present, Mainly using some office PC's and I am building a rig one card at a time. Just waiting on my next card to arrive! More of a hobby than anything else. I had a few pc's mine small amounts over the last year and through trading and lending I have increased my balance to well over $1000.

Enjoy your time in France. I look forward to your journey and posts while on it.

Upvoted, resteemed and followed.

Edit: Also picked up some of your recommendations. Lets see how they play out. Thanks again

·

Great that you are getting into mining. That's a big step in itself. But steemit is the key which unlocks the door to this exciting new world.

I wish you all the luck with your time on Steemit. Stay focused on the goal and it won't be long before you're smiling from ear to ear :)

Thanks for all those tips ! I still have a lot to learn !

·

Hi there! How's it going??? I had such a lovely time on Sunday. Thanks for being a great friend to Sab here. She really needed that. I hope very much that both of you will be leading the French community into future on this platform soon enough! And like me, you will be enjoying the rewards and this amazing new way of life :)

Gros bisous x

·
·

Hi ! Yes maybe one day we will lead the French community ! I surely need to get better internet provider for that ! My internet sucks so bad ! Anyway, I will see and Sabrina saturday !

I haven't said much about this but planning a post on it soon but I owe much gratitude to Steemit. It has gotten me through a month long stint of unemployment! Thanks for making this post and here's to your continued success.
raises champagne glass

·

Chink! Here is my champagne glass against yours :)

·
·

Here is mine ! Cheers to both of you
🥂

That is pretty darn impressive you're able to live off your Steem and Steem Dollars! I have always been intrigued with Bali! How are you liking it?

·

Loving it. And a little bit sad to be leaving in a week after 2 years here.

It's not been easy living off this platform.... though in the last few months everything has changed.

And the future is looking very bright for all of us here :)

·
·

I can imagine it is incredibly difficult!! Where is the next stop?!

This is a great read ! I’ve been really confused the last day or 2. Thank you for the great information! I’m looking forward to learning all about the Steem world! I’m super excited! And reading your story makes me see it can be done with a little work! Thank you again!! 😉

·

It is a dream well within your reach and far less painful than getting a University degree, which frankly, didn't do anything at all to help me with my career in film making!

Great post @samstonehill!

I'm glad to see that you encourage users to 'not feel guilty' about selling Steem for greater value, with a purpose to reinvest. It makes no sense to not make the best use of what's earned, to help make the long-term value of Steem stronger.

I will definitely research the 3 cryptos you mentioned.

A word about Bittrex: I do believe they have stopped taking new users. I signed up a few weeks ago and continue to get an error message on trying to trade. I think someone mentioned it 'temporarily'? no longer validating new accounts.

Again, thanks for sharing life from Bali...safe travels...

Peace.

·

Someone else mentioned that about Bittrex here. I hadn't heard about that till now. I wonder why???

Try Poloniex. They also have Steem & SBD.

All the best to you and your exciting future in the world of crypto!

·
·

I wonder why???

Some speculate that the demand overshot their ability to 'keep up'. This is considered, by most, good news for the crypto market.

Try Poloniex

Smh on this one...The comments sections lit up right before the holidays on this exchange simply holding/making inaccessible funds without alerting 'customers' of any reasons. I stopped paying attention; but, at last record, most felt as if they were left holding air. I'm sure they've gotten back on track; because, I haven't heard any recent complaints...hope so, any way.

Peace.

You are truly an inspiration. I am VERY grateful i've found you.

I'm on the road too, and i will stay around, because i want to follow your journey and learn from you.

Thank you VERY much for sharing.

·

Thank you for you kind words. Stick with it, never give up... and a year from now you will be laughing :)

You've done well but and I Iook forward to hearing about you move! Thanks for the tips, my follower are building finally. But I don't have time to promote I struggle to keep up with the reading and reply to comment, I blame it on dyslexia with a dab of OCD myself! Anyway keep up the content in 2018 💯🐒

·

I also have those wonderful labels, though mine are dyslexia & ADHD. Personally I believe that these conditions will only work to our advantage in the long run. It helps us think outside the box :)

And like you I struggle with time these days for post promotion. No matter. All is well 🌴

·
·

Great work. I'm building slowly. 💯🐒

Missing Bali but I Be back soon if Steem is going to the moon 💃

·

Don't wait too long. It's changing fast. The south is very build up now. But the north is still as Bali once was.

Here's to Steem (and SBD!) going to the moon 🌠

·
·

It’s me @mammasitta and I know all about the #baliohbali Land and can’t wait to meet you soon in Ubud

An article full of useful information for all the steemit users who are serious about such platform, and inspiring too.
Bittrex is not accepting new sign up? do you have any idea when this might open again? What is the alternate of bittrex you propose for us who don't have any account in similar exchange /trading sites?
How can I know my rank in steemit? (your is 115)

·

Really? I hadn't heard that about Bittrex? Sounds strange. Try poloniex.

Your rank in rep can be seen if you click on the rep tab on this site: steemwhales.com

So encouraging to read success stories. Gives us all a boost to keep up the pace. I think often of the exponential effect. Things go slowly for awhile and then that tipping point hits and suddenly there's a remarkable change.

·

You are 100% right. I was almost ready to throw in the towel with Steemit when along came a group of whales I refer to as my magic five. They seem to like what I write and now that they follow me consistently I am blessed to have their consistent support 🙏🏻

Oh my goodness!! Thank you this is a gem! Especially for a noob like me... I am so glad I started following you the other day! Thank you for the quality content!

·

The Universe has a habit of pushing us in the directions we need to go. Am glad you found me too :)

Onward and Upward for all of us!

Goal: Be valuable enough to the Steemit community for my blog to support my Wife and Son and buy us our first house...

2nd Goal: Somehow convince my wife that you can make “REAL” money on Steemit.

*Goal one auto-achieves goal 2

Ready Go!!

·

haha! Know the feeling of the convincing the wife! That took me around a year to achieve. But now it is done even she is considering getting an account, despite having her hands very full with the two kids...

Great that you have clear goals.

All that is left is the manifestation of them. Believe it is possible, bask in the glory of it and watch as it unfolds....

·

I hope you achieve your goals!

I'm so happy for you living the dream and traveling with your family. That is my goal too! Thanks for the tips for content producers and your undervalued coin suggestions. I will research these further. Thanks!

·

It's very important to have clear goals. And if we have a partner, to make sure our goals are in sync.

Best of luck with your investments! I am sure in a few years you will be smiling from ear to ear 😄

Wow! You’re a truly inspiration! I joined Steemit only because I’m fascined about cryptocurrency, but I’m learning that here is a real community. You seem a great guy and deserve all the success!!! Have fun in France :)

·

Thank you for your lovely words :)

There is an AMAZING community here. So much better than my days on FB.

I feel completely blessed to have discovered this platform at the perfect time in my life and I wish you all the success here :)

·
·

Thank you!!!🙏🏻

Great post enjoyed reading and all of the tips you have to offer. Happy for your success through crypto and creativity. Keep inspiring the rest of us to go further.

·

Thanks for your lovely words :)

I will do my very best to keep on inspiring others as I go....

Really a interesting post to read as I am new to steemit..So thanks for sharing this!Hope it helps me too!! and you amazed me when I saw 6 months survival via Steemit!

·

9 months now my friend. It took my 9 months to achieve and having been living this way for a further 9 months. Not too long when you look at the bigger picture of going to University, getting a degree, getting a job etc...

You will love it here I am sure :)

Wonderful post. It takes courage to invest (even if that's time) in a new platform and have faith in its potential.

Like you did by working diligently for the success of Steem which eventually rewarded you back

Hope to achieve similar targets in 2018.

·

When something simply feels right, one must go with the instincts :)

Thanks for all the tips and have a healthy, happy travel adventure.

·

Thanks very much! And the same to you. Life is an ongoing adventure...

Thank you so much for this post and for your hard work on and for this platform. Take care & all the best. :)

·

My pleasure :)

interesting and inspirational post
thanks for advice

·

Pleasure to provide :)

Great article!!!

Please Like My posts I liked you

·

That’s called spamming somebody’s wonderful work

·
·

Thanks for looking out for me! Usually I respond with a simple thanks to these messages but you are right to explain what they are doing wrong.

·
·
·

sama sama!!! :) Lets hope they will start understanding without being flagged

·
·
·
·
·

What can you offer? Liking others for them liking you back doesn't contribute to a great content nor it establishes truly meaningful relationships between users. I am sorry, but this does look spammy.

·
·

He didn't even upvote this! haha :) Guess I won't be liking him back...

Best wishes for your future journey. I have so much enjoyed you posts from Bali. I look forward to follow your future travels! I have done my share of traveling and have to stay put until my son is done with High School.
Please do not forget about Proof Of Stake (POS) Cryptocurrencies. Has been very overlooked but beginning to move.

·

Which coins in particular work on proof of stake? Clearly I still have much to learn here!

·
·

TRK, TEK, HYP. TRK coin being my favorite solid and tested over time coin.
If you keep your wallet open the coins stake and work as mining machines.

·
·
·

Thanks for this! Looks like I have further research to do...

🙏🏻

·
·
·
·

So much to research!!

·
·
·
·

You are welcome. Good luck!

Great breakdown for new comers, thank you for all of the links info. This is so inspiring. I still cannot wrap my head around the life changing possibilities Steemit holds for people....cheers and take care of you and yours❤

·

It's a crazy thought hey! My new job is to live an exciting and interesting life... and then write about it on steemit.

BRILLIANT! 🎉

Resteemed your post cos I one day I wanna read it again to keep motivating myself.

·

Great to hear this! It's not the first time I've posted on this subject, mostly because I am so amazed that this has happened at this time in my life.

PERFECTION 🌅

Thank you for such an inpirational post @samstonehill

·

My pleasure. Am pleased you found it inspirational :)

But I am going to tell you that it is possible to turn Steemit into your main source of income if you commit yourself now during these early days before this platform goes mainstream.

While not yet my main source of income, it’s already a significant chunk of it. For now at least, I am converting most of the SBD that I’m earning into SP. If SMT’s take off and Steem goes mainstream, I may no longer need a paycheck job.

One post at a time...

·

That's it. One post at a time...

Am quietly confident that SMTs will change the game completely and we will quickly be the early adopters in a very strong position. Here's to a life without the paycheck job! All the best to you :)

A DOGE fan? High five :)

·

haha! Yes brother. Through and through :)

·

I knew I should have bought some Dogecoin as soon as I heard about it. Months ago. The crypto world is moving fast isn't it? My Friday payday don't come quite quick enough.

Thank you for the information. As a newbie it all gets overwhelming at times. Look forward to watching your YouTube videos.

·

Totally understood. It's COMPLETELY overwhelming at first. But stick with it and soon it will become second nature... like riding a bike :)

·
·

Thanks for the tips and support!

I am pretty new to Steemit and this information is great and helps me understand better how all this works.

Thanks again

·

Pleasure to provide. Stay focused, work hard and it won't be long before you're making those investments for your future...

It's crazy how much you can make on Steemit. Full time blogger is hard to pull off anywhere else

·

It really is crazy hey. A whole new world of possibility here :)

This is a very informative and helpful article.
All the tips and suggestions that you have provided in your article are very useful.
I really appreciate your work.
Steem is really a very great opportunity for all the peoples. we need to focus on it.
You motivated us in a very great way.
you are doing a good job Man keep it up.
Thank you so much for writing this great article.

·

My pleasure to provide! Here's to your future on Steemit :)

Thank you!!
It is one of my most important goals of this year to only rely on steemit for my income <3
To see and read about someone who has already achieved it is overwhelming :)

After reading your post the first thing i want to do is to find all the wonderful discord chats etc.
Have a great day :)

·

With a year to do it I am sure you will make it happen :)

The tricky thing with discord is finding the groups and gaining entrance. There are many and they are not listed on discord like they are on steemit.chat. Though I am sure you will find plenty of steemit posts on this subject...

Best of luck to you!

this is a great post! something to consider...
and about coins ... I've been interested in doge , but they don't sell it on binance and bittrex is closed to new people.

·

Hmmm... I actually don't know the answer to that one. Wasn't aware of the Bittrex issue till today. I imagine google will find you the answer ;)

there is another problem , many sites don't work with Washington state because of regulations ... so, not a lot of options for me . I use only binance , which is great because of very low fees, but they don't sell some coins.

Thank you for your tips, this open my eyes.

This is very cool. When I first started, you were talking about preparing to give up the blogging life. Steem was down, you were had lost some whale supporters or something... Glad things have turned around!

Wow! Isn't that good to know!!? I have been dabbling in this crypto world since I started steem in October. But, have been visiting full-time since Christmas. Just trying to get a groove. Such a learning curve 😁 cudos @fishyculture for scouring and sharing great content! How long have you been steeming?

Great post thanks for sharing. Bittrex is still not accepting new accounts as of yesterday, but I was able to get an account at Polloniex and will be looking at Burst, Digibyte and doge.

Thank you very much for this info.
Am new yes no doubt, my rep says it all.
Am just taking it one after the other, and this was recommended to me to read.
I have and find it helpful.

Thanks for sharing this. This serves as an inspirational post. As a newbie, I am still trying to gasp helpful articles I can find to help me do better on this platform.Great job @samstonehill

Great post! Very very inspiring!

Still confused on how to navigate and make a name here or i crease my stats

Dude, so good to see you on Steemit still and cranking it out! Love it. I'm recently back to the platform after an unforseen break, and couldn't be happier that you're doing well :)

Great post and congratulations on your success on Steemit. I have invested a little in crypto, but not using Steem yet. Perhaps I need to try that. I will Resteem this so that I can study it a bit more closely later.

Congratulations on your success! Your post is very encouraging. Thanks so much.

Amazing post! I will use this as a reference from now on for expanding my Steemit presence!

Very helpful and thanks for taking the time to write this post. Discord is a tough one to get into as a lot of the chat rooms are empty or people don't respond. Perhaps I'll give it another shot.

Thanks again and you have my follow. Let's see what creative ideas you have in store for 2018!

Hugs from Boston...

Mate, you've just become my personal inspiration, cracking read, looking forward to following, finding out more and seeing your life on Steem!! All the best :-)

Thanks for sharing this, very inspiring! I started to share my story here last week and I am overwhelmed by the nice reply's and the value of the posts now.. I see that steem will open many doors for many people! I am a follower now and wish you the best of luck traveling!

That was the best explanation of trading I have heard yet. Thank you.

Someday I'd love to roam the world while making a living off the internet. Perhaps I'll get there some day, though I've still got a long way to go.

Even though this is past payout day already, I still want to acknowledge how nail-on-the-head it is. Spot on, engaging, encouraging, inspiring
Thank you @samestonehill

WOW! How exciting is this? Only a few months ago we were both lamenting this platform and how things have turned around in such a short time? I definitely want another session with you! To anyone reading this comment, having a session with Sam Was one of the best investments of my life!

Thanks Sam @samstonehill and safe travels. Bali will miss you!! You are an inspiration to those who want to divest themselves of the rat race and follow their heart and passion. Steem on!!

Thank you for this. New here and looking forward to go forward with Steemit. :D
