Really helpful. Will share this with my friends who are new to steemit. I was tired of talking to them about how to get write a good blog post.
Haha glad it made ur life easier! :)
Humorous and helpful - two of my favorite things! This is a great guide (and I'm amazed by how much of it I already knew - LOL!). I've bookmarked this to share with everyone that I plan to bring over to this platform - thanks so much, @zord189!
Hehe! Thanks @traciyork! Glad this post can help the basic necessities of Steemit.
I didn't even know half of the staff in the do's and dont's section. Really good stuff for us noobs to know. Thanks a bunch as always for sharing your knowledge!
You're welcome @hanbun! :)
right! he's really the master
Fear not!!! Bro. Anyways awe-some article Mega-zord bro. 🍌🍌🍌
Fear not, fraid not.
I think there should be a beginners or newbies tag, would make life so much easier for newbies
That's true. It would be good. But I heard the tags would disappear after 7 days
An excellent guide, can help a lot of new people,
You're a good person who helps others to succeed - well done dear friend.
I appreciate your investment in our community.
Thank you for your kind words bro. :)
You have really opened my eyes to the benefits of being in a community
Glad it helped
This is insightful bro. Still working on my footer haha..
Haha, quick get it out!
Right away mate!
I liked your posts❤
Upvoted by @lhecenam check my blog if you want
While good idea, would be good to add that people should avoid TAG spam (out of context tags) or they May be target of @steemcleaners.
Also How much you charge to design a banner?
That's true! Thanks for this important tip! Oo I charge, 5-10 steem.
Good solid advice there.
Thank you :)
oh my! this is amazing! need to bookmark this page!
Hehe, glad I can help
I still love that banner you made me, thanks again!
Hahaha!!! Ur very welcome bro! Keep 'rock'ing it out.
Glad it helped!
TY, Mr.@zord189 I would add your tips to "White paper" doc if I could.
Having analyzed some successful profiles, I realized that it is necessary to specialize my niche. Still in search, but glad that have read the same idea from the person with more experience.
Having a niche is VERY important!! It's okay, take ur time to find one. It took me a month to nail down my niche on Steemit. :) Glad you found this useful
Great advice you have there! :)
Your post came at the right time, I've been cracking my head on how to centralize the subtitle at the same time bold and bigger, like how you did with your 1-5 title? Many thanks in advance!
I can't show the code here. Maybe on fb if u dm me I can.
I will, thanks in advance.
Happy New year too!
Don't know if you saw this competition, its right up your alley!
Haha, thanks bro! I haven't seen this competition but last night, a friend was telling me about it. :)
I’ve come to realise that a thumbnail picture that shows a face expressing a strong emotion makes people more likely to click on a post.
Maybe funny cat photos have a place on Steemit after all.
That is true! It feels almost click-bait-ish. Haha, maybe the title can go like '5 things to do on Steemit, NO 4 IS A SHOCKER!'. Hahaha
I saw a post yesterday which claimed to be a top 10 places to see in Pakistan post. They showed a few photos of trees and then didn't list a top 10. They should have put "shocker" in the title.
Hahaha, click-bait works! :D Either that or a really pretty girl.

Being a newbie I have seen many help posts but none quite like this one. I enjoyed reading it. Thanks for taking the time to share your initial learning so we don't have to make the same errors.
I'm new here and have been finding it very difficult to know how it works around here but I couldn't, with this post now I now know few things and am also getting to know how it works around here. This post is really useful to me. Thanks a lot.
Ur welcome :) Glad it helped you
This helps so much! Thank you!! :) #thisisgettingserious
ur welcome :D
Thanks for sharing this @zord189. I'm guilty of procrastinating on the footer part. Need to start cracking on it
yes yes! footer looks more professional :D
Just came about this post and find it helpful ! Yes I read all the FAQ even before i decide to join.. but then hor, i am still quite lost hahaha.. i guess i will learn the ropes and guidance along the way.. just like today, i didn't even know I need to Redeem Steem .. baru i learn. haha
Haha, it's okay, we all started somewhere. Do come join our discord more often and u can dm or ask the seniors there for advice and guidance. They'll help one
rightt.. that's another thing i wanna ask u about.. what is this discord thing about yeah? a channel, a website or a chatroom? there has been so many techie words since i join steemit, sorry if i ask too much! but then thanks for answering them haha
No worries, um. discord is like s standalone software like skype. It is usually used for gamers but a lot of Steemit community is built using discord. Means the members use discord to chat and meetup. Come join our teammalaysia, discord, but remember to sign up first ya.
Discord : https://discord.gg/2KuESkH
I think i just joined yesterday through @elizacheng tutorials on upvote. Now let me find teammalaysia :)
