I’ve started posting on a new website, but this isn’t like any other website. ‘Steemit’ is a new platform for writers to showcase their talents, and make money while doing it! It’s basically a website setup on the block chain, which means that it has crypto currency within it. This is a very complex concept, but basically, if you’ve ever heard of bitcoin, it works on the same principle of that, but instead of the crypto currency bitcoin, this website uses its own one, ‘steem dollars’. Writers can post articles and readers can up vote them. Depending on how much ‘steem power’ the voter has, the writer will start to stack up these steem dollars, which they can withdraw at any time as long as they have a bitcoin wallet. It can then be converted into psychical money, or gold, silver or bitcoin, whatever you prefer!
I’ve been on steemit for around 3 days now. I’ve posted 3 articles, and I’ve made about 65 cent so far with the votes I’ve gotten. While it’s not millions, it is a start. I find it really cool that you can actually make money from the stuff your writing, and users seem engaged and they will up vote your stuff if they enjoy it. People are actually reading your stuff. That’s what’s best about this website.no more posting articles that get no attention on blog sites. Its free to sign up too all you need is your mobile phone for verification, they will send you a little text and you can be posting articles and making money in no time! They will give you a key as a password, and it is long, you’ll need to save it in word or notepad and back it up somewhere offline because there is no password retrieval system.
Some of the top posts are making upwards of 60 quid a post, some over a hundred. That’s not bad, considering that it doesn’t take long to write a wee article and post it up, if you write the right thing, you’ll be rolling in money! The more you improve the quality of your writing, the more money you can potentially make. You can promote your posts too, and you can up vote others articles and follow them, kind of like Facebook, there is a feed and everything, with those you’ve followed’s articles appearing in it.
Steemit is a really good idea, giving writers motivation to write the best stuff they can I hopes of easily getting paid for it. It’s a community of writers, and that’s pretty cool too. People can comment on your writing with feedback and well wishes, and as I said earlier, users seem pretty engaged so you won’t be left with no comments wondering what went wrong! If you follow some people whose writing you enjoy, and up vote it, comment on some things, users won’t be long getting back to you and supporting your articles. Some articles on the site are really interesting!
In the end, there’s not much to say about steemit other than, if you’re a writer, get on it and get posting! The more the merrier!
