Steps For a Great Experience on Steemit
Before you comment or make a post make sure you at least have a profile picture.
Some Steemit accounts have been active for months and still have no Profile Picture.
Here are the Steps to Upload a Profile Picture and or Cover Image to your Steemit account.
- Step 1. Click your circle icon of your account on the top right corner
- Step 2. Click Settings
- Step 3. Open a new Tab and Go to http://postimg.org
Step 4 Click Choose Image and Upload your desired image
Step 5 Copy the second link titled "Direct Link"
- Step 6 Go back to tab from Step 2 Paste your Direct Link into either Cover Image URL or Profile Picture URL. Scroll to the Bottom and Click Update.
Not having a profile image not only looks bad on your comments but can make your account look unofficial.
To maximize your experience on steemit, you'll want to use the chat feature.
Here you can ask questions and interact with users in more personal ways without leaving public comments on posts.
It is important to note, that you should not go to these chats asking people to look at your posts, or asking for follows. This is not a good way to make friends. It's OK to ask a friend to review your post, but you have to make the friend, first. If they think you are in chat just to beg, and not make friends, you will not get far.
Unless you are just posting in #postpromotion
Verification Introduce Myself/Yourself Post
Being that this is a semi-anonymous group, and there is currency involved, there are many people who come thinking they can scam this community. Because of this, many may be mistrusting when you post images that claim to be You. If you don't post any images of yourself, and don't claim to be anyone famous, then you are not required to use a verification photo.
But You Should
However, posts with this verification image in one of the introduction categories such as #introducemyself, or #introduceyourself, tend to be the highest paid introductory posts. There are many people who are just looking for these verification posts so they can give your blog a nice upvote knowing you are a real person.
A nicely handmade sign that says "hello steemit" with your username and the date, with you holding the sign. It's nice to take a few, so we can see that it's real by how the paper moves, unlike the photoshop versions.
If you make a post like this, you are likely to get a warmer welcome. However, this is not necessary. If you don't want to share your image, that is okay too.
Besides finding a place to chat with other steemians, is to browse the steemit trending section. See what this community has to offer. What are people already writing about? Who is writing about things that are interesting to you? What content is getting the highest attention?
- Dont Spam
While browsing, you can leave nice comments on people's posts. Do Not post "Follow For Follow", or similar content this is not a good look.
Better to comment about what you liked in the post. This will gain you followers, and friends and avoid getting you flagged.
These can all be helpful if steemit isn't working.
