Happy New Year!!! - Special Announcement

With the New Year almost upon us I’d like to take a moment to reflect on nearly a year of posting on Steemit, and the opportunity that it has provided.

The key to success on Steemit is the ability to continue writing and participating in contests helps to keep the creation of content going.

I’ve learned much more about writing stories from these contests in this short run on Steemit than I could have imagined. It’s also given me a place to create short works of fiction that are publishable. After all, the work got prepared for a contest.

With this in mind, and with a couple of Kindle ebooks already in print, I’m happy to announce the preparation for the ebook: Steemit Blog – Part 01

The hope of this ebook will be to introduce people on KDP to Steemit. There are a lot of people that publish on Kindle that might join Steemit if they realized they could get paid for their rough drafts.

This ebook will also be available on Kindle Unlimited adding to the exposure on Amazon.

The first chapter will focus on the Haiku contest that I’ve been competing in most weeks. This will allow readers to get a preview of the idea behind the ebook.

The second chapter will be the rest of the Steemit Blog featuring all my writing from the other contests I’ve been competing in. It’s about 200 pages formatted.

Special thanks to @bananafish, @dirge, @stevescoins, @calluna, @mctiller, @marcoriccardi, @tygertyger, @f3nix, @originalworks, @curie, and too many others to name that run and support contests on Steemit that push people like me to write beyond our abilities. Thanks for all the support for all the writers braving this social experiment. May we all grow together and find success in 2019!!!

All the best,
Cyrus Emerson

Great idea. Steemit can always use more exposure.


Going to include a contest within the ebook to reward new user participation in Steemit contests worth over 25 Steem!!!

Hope to get some KDP converts, LOL.

Additional comment: This is great! You will show what Steem is for you to the other audiences. I always believed in this kind of approach, and I think people should also consider the publishing of best of (contests) selections. Small but concrete steps, like yours, are the only way for further community development!

Best regards, and happy new year!


Happy New Year!


Thanks @hidden84. So glad you guys are on the @bananafish boat.

Have added some commentary to the contest entries to make the ebook a guide to hopeful new Steemit users that will lead them here to create great content with us!

Good luck....Kindle is about promotion. I think you're good at that. You have a great future ahead in the creative arts.


Thanks @agmoore. Making this ebook more about the Contests than my entries. Even giving away Steem if a unique visitor joins Steemit and participates in the highlighted Contests.


Send me a link and I'll promote it on twitter...may not make any difference but can't hurt.


Sounds good. Going to get it done this weekend. Maybe a week or two before it will be available. Thanks!
