I have been here and while and I better say HELLO

Well I have been on here a few weeks but never made and intro so here goes.

My name is John, I’m married with a young son who I absolutely adore. He makes my day. My wife is close to perfect as well.f1.jpg

I work as a web manager for several websites by day. By night, after my son’s bedtime, I’m unusually working on a 1973 C-10 pickup truck. I kind of go crazy if I don’t do something mechanical, something besides computers all day.

Anyways, I’m excited to see all what steemit has to offer.

I have been involved with bitcoin/ various coins since 2013 and I already wrote an article about why I won’t sell them off anymore.

"I will never sell again… what I have learned about crypto since 2013"

My 73 C10 Project has been underway for the past 8 months, I will hopefully be posting a lot more about it!. It’s got a 500hp+ 383 Stoker motor I salvaged from another car.




Welcome to Steem.com

Welcome to steem nation

Welcome to family :)

Wellcome to family :)

Welcome, to the moment you are probably wondering how to start your adventure here.
Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Be realistic, do not expect quick profits. Write for what you like and be regular but no more than 2 posts per day maximum 3
  2. Making friends with other users, nothing makes it easier to communicate directly.
  3. Have fun, take it as a side hobby.
  4. Try to post short but interesting articles, do not copy from others.

Be yourself and sooner or later you will succeed.

WElcome to Steemit. followed n upvoted

hello @johnthompson

you are very much welcome to steemit,a one of its kind in the history of social networks. i will like to share with you some lessons i learnt the hard way.

First,write on your area of strength, don't strugle more to get topics to write on, but when you write based on what you know/do well at, that becomes your brand and fellow steemians will know what to expect from you on every post.

don't beg for followers.

When people follow you on a quip pro quo basis, that's the foundation of not getting upvotes and comments because many of your followers didn't do so because they wanted what you have to offer but rather they are just there as numbers. #don't go for numbers, but value.

When i joined, after my intro post. i went low kay and started engaging with people on their posts and comments and like that,i was getting people that truly liked me for me. i must note that at some post as a newbie, i outrightly asked people to follow me but that was before i learned that it was one of the unwritten rule of steemit;don't beg for followers.

Again,paticipate in contests, it will conect you to people and probably, earn you some steem/steem dollar. and always try to leave a good comment on people's posts. this dose wonders. check out this contest[clickhere]https://steemit.com/fiftywords/@literature-trail/50-word-story-contest-week-19-join-for-a-chance-to-win-1000-trail-and-40-sbd

Finally, learn to engage. Get the esteem app on your phone so that after writing and posting with your pc,you can now use your phone and respond to replys on the go. This will help you build your followers.>/h4>

I hope that this piece will be of grate help to you as it has been for me[though i learnt the hard way]. Follow them and thank me later. : )

once more, you are welcome.
