Why You Should Install Steempress On Your Wordpress Blog

in #steempress4 years ago (edited)


The joy of every blogger is to have a large number of audience, coming regularly to read your blog post. Building a good reputation and a good niche comes with hard work dedication and time. This simply goes with the saying, nothing good come easy.

It is a herculean task to convince someone, who has built a blog reputation for years, then ask him/her to abandon his/her blog. Only for you to tell him/her to join Steemit, just because you believe he/she can do better.

It is also awkward for you to tell the person to copy and paste his/her old content and to the steemit blockchain. Cheetah will definitely tag the post as a duplicate from another source.

The good news is, if you have a blogger operating with WordPress platform, then I will say it is much more easier to introduce the person to blockchain. Because with steempress the blogger can integrate his/her blog to the blockchain.

For the first timer, who don't know what WordPress is, you don't have to stop reading. Because in this blog series I will be discussing about WordPress, Steempress, and reason why you should make use of steempress as a WordPress blogger.

The plugin file size is small and easy to set up and it does not interfere with the website loading speed. As most bloggers don't like to install some WordPress plugin because some of these plugin reduce website loading speed. Steempress plugin does not affect website speed, all that is required to make post to the steem blockchain is the steemian username and private posting key. Which is safer and risk free, as the private posting key can only be use to make new post. Fund cannot be transferred from the steemian wallet except using the steemian owner key, which is not required by steempress plugin.

Hello, @mayowadavid!

Thank you for this contribution. Your post is very informative and well-illustrated with relevant images and dividers. Keep up the good work.

In terms of content, I have mixed feelings about your contribution. The post certainly contains useful information about the project, but tells the readers so little about your personal knowledge, views and experience of using this tool. Your personal opinion is the unique feature you can add to your texts, and this is the kind of editorial content we particularly like to see in blog posts.

That said, the writing of this post was not good enough, I'm afraid. There were serious issues of grammar and style, making your post difficult to comprehend at times. Grammar errors affect the reader's perception of the author's credibility, and make it hard for the reader to get a grasp on the key points for the whole text. I would advise you to consider using grammar checker software in order to enhance the readability of your texts.

I make use of grammar checker while writing the post, about the personal information i will work on it. Please can you highlight the part with serious grammar style issues. So that i can work on it on my next series @lordneroo


I will cite a few examples for you:

then I will say it is much more easier to introduce the person to blockchain.

This sentence should read: "then I will say it is much easier to introduce the person to the blockchain.

Because in this blog series I will be discussing about WordPress, Steempress, and reason why you should make use of steempress as a WordPress blogger.

This would be a better sentence: "Because in this blog series I will be discussing WordPress, Steempress, and the reasons why you should make use of steempress as a WordPress blogger."

In other not divert your attention, a website is an interconnected page use to display information about what an organisation product or services.

This sentence is hard to understand. I think you meant to write: "In order not to divert your attention, a website is an interconnected page used to display information about the products and services offered by an organisation."

I hope you will find this comment useful.
