I often get asked for advice on how to succeed at Steemit. Success means different things to different people, but when asked, I usually share the same three posts. I started blogging here in July of 2016, and I think these three posts summarize quite a few thoughts on what Steemit means to me.
I was reminded of this right before heading out to Steemfest when @ehiboss asked me to do a 5 minute video for Steemit Nigeria. I like how the video turned out and now that it's been shared with their community, I wanted to share it with you as well (even if you don't happen to live in Nigeria).
Here are the three posts I mention in the video which explain what Steemit means to me:

The Currency of Steemit Isn't Steem Power, STEEM, or SBD

Reputation Advice from Someone in the Top 0.38%

Last Week I Made $1,500 Worth of Cryptocurrency Blogging on Steemit. Here's How.
I don't expect many of you to read through those old posts, but for those who are looking for advice from me, that's where I'll send you.
We have an amazing community here. I think it will continue to prosper and grow if we remain focused on building valuable relationships. If we respect each other and work to maintain and improve our reputations, we'll incentivize mutually beneficial action. As we sharpen our skills of communication and connection, we can also enjoy some nice financial rewards, but those rewards won't come without consistent work over time.
I hope this little video and these three posts are helpful to you as you navigate your own Steemit journey. If you like the idea of putting together a short video or essay on what Steemit means to you, go ahead and use the #steemitistome tag and put something together for us to share. Drop a link in the comments so we can check it out.
Maybe we'll build some new relationships along the way.
