hello, @harmenpiekema! I'm @jcrodriguez from the @OCD team. we've seen that you've already published your first post here on Hive! congratulations and welcome! I'm looking at your social media and your photos are amazing and you've visited fabulous places. You know what would be great? If you put on your yotube channel and instagram a link to your new blog on Hive, so your followers would have the option to follow you and read your blog on the platform.
However, the best way to start your journey here on Hive is to make an awesome introductory post . As an example of what an introduction post is, you can refer to this introduction post as a reference:
There is no specific format on how to make your introduction post, but there are some suggested content we would like to see in your post: Information like who you are and where you're from, how you discovered Hive or who invited you, what types of content you want to see here and the types you want to produce, and what your expectations are on this platform. You can choose the information you want to share. This will help other Hivers get to know you and feel comfortable supporting your work here.
The best thing to do is to post in the right community, there are a lot of communities you can explore and subscribe to the ones you like. Check out the OCD Community Incubation Program. There is a wide variety of topics, you are sure to find the right communities for your content.
You may run into RC (Resource Credits) issues when trying to comment/post because you don't have enough Hive Power in your account yet. You can fix this with a one-week temporary delegation through the Gift Giver Site. Another solution is to have the person who recommended Hive delegate some Hive Power to you.

Keep in mind that Hive is a bit different from other social media platforms, as you are monetizing your blog, so it's important not to include content you don't own without sources (and it should not exceed 50% of the post). For more information, check out this post – Why and How People Abuse and Plagiarise by hivewatchers. You can also check out this excellent collection of resources to understand how plagiarism and abuse is handled on the platform.
If you have questions or concerns, you can join the OCD Discord server and we will be happy to answer your questions.
Lovesniper will follow you, we hope to see your presentation post soon! You can tag @lovesniper in your introduction post.
