I Know you have Steemit Questions or want Suggestions? Come get answers! Starts in 1.5 hours!

in #steem-help5 years ago

Confused about how parts of Steemit work?
Want to know some details on the voting system?
Maybe something more personal you want to know?

We'll be starting in 1.5 Hours in Discord!!

Since I don't have the time like I did last year, I've not been able to answer every comment or question asked in posts, chats, etc. So this is your chance! This Wednesday, Jan 10th from 7-9pm CST (Thursday Jan 11th 1-3am GMT) I'll be in the the old Steemit Talk Podcast discord to answer any questions that you might have!

I have no doubt I could easily be charging for things like this!
But I prefer to do it for FREE as a way to give back to the Steemit community!!

I'm Here to Help!

Last year I had WAY more time which allowed me to work one on one with people, or at least in smaller groups. But as I've had life obligations increase, I instead started trying to help new people by writing short, easy to understand guides, answer questions in Steemit chat as well as in the Team Girl Powa discord. But I know reading a guide isn't quite the same as getting direct answers and/or advice from somebody.

Even though there are tons of resources around whether the Steemit Faq, Steem Center Wiki, My Guides or guides of others available...I KNOW people still prefer direct answers to their questions.

I'm Donating Two Full Hours Just to Help fellow Steemians!

So this is your opportunity! Participants will get my undivided attention to ask questions about:

  • Any aspect of Steemit
  • What's changed over time on Steemit
  • Suggestions to be more successful on here
  • What images can you safely use (since you earn money from posts)
  • Post formatting issues or access to post templates
  • Getting started in Cryptocurrency Trading
  • or even things that are more personal such as my experience being transgender

I do plan to record the session and will repost it for others to listen to if it seems worthwhile. If people enjoy this sort of thing, I'll look to do more in the future.

A Few Credentials

I've been on Steemit since July 2016, seen the changes over time and constantly tried to help out new people to the platform. This includes (or included)

  • founded and ran the first newbie mentoring group called @steemprentice
  • co-hosted the @SteemitTalk podcast for over a year
  • helping out with the "Team Girl Powa" community in their discord
  • moderating in Steemit.Chat's #general channel
  • literally written dozens of guides for new Steemit users (see full list below)
    ..just to name a few.

While I won't say I know everything, I have built up quite a bit of Steemit knowledge. On top of this I have been doing some cryptocurrency trading for over a year and I also have my personal experience with being transgender (which I don't often bring up, but am comfortable discussing.)
