I was never an SEO pro. I would implement the basics of SEO and hope for success. The same recipe for success I use on Steemit is what I did with my personal blog. ### My Recipe for Success Online. ### 1. Engagement (Commenting, Upvoting) 2. Consistency 3. Relevant Media (Videos, Images) 4. Outbound Links 5. Sharing My Content on Other Social Channels. https://steemitimages.com/DQmbNCc218nTt3pout5VZfoGNHCvrddB4qEAdAxrWicdsZM/Randy-Banner-big-Steemit.jpg

If you have been a member of a club, committee or other community that tries to organize something, I am sure you have experienced it even if the term is not one you know. > Parkinson observed that a committee whose job is to approve plans for a nuclear power plant may spend the majority of its time on relatively unimportant but easy-to-grasp issues, such as *what materials to use for the staff bikeshed*, while neglecting the design of the power plant itself, which is far more important Our local all-volunteer maker space devolves into bike shedding at every opportunity, and it is making me want to leave and join the forthcoming commercial maker space to escape it. ## Symptoms not causes It's not even political or malicious, it's just everyone has ideas but nobody takes action, and nobody is empowered to take action, because everyone gets a say and
<html> <h2>About me</h2> <p>Hello everyone!</p> <p>My name is <strong>Stevan</strong>. I'm a 15 year old Serbian boy with passion towards Web Development, programming in general, 3D modeling and blogging. I just enrolled high-school and I like reading prose. I like writing too.</p> <p>I found out for Steemit through Twitter when I saw someone's bio include this site. I checked it out and at first I though this was phishing, but then I read the reviews and saw that it's a real thing. I decided to make an account and after three days, it got approved.</p> <p>According to Steemit tradition:</p> <p><img src="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DKFLowoXUAEZhq8.jpg" width="1200" height="675"/></p> <p><em>Photo resolution is the best, I know. And the timing is a bit wrong as the picture was taken earlier today.</em></p> <p>Currently, I'm working for a promotion app for <a href="http://irevolucija.net">iRevolution</a>'s conference from 22nd to 26th November 2017 and on a website for microblogging.

The internet has given us a platform, a soap box, and we can choose to use it or not. Most of us have chosen to use it. https://media.giphy.com/media/XIqCQx02E1U9W/giphy.gif Here’s why blogging is important 1. The internet is NOT everywhere, and not everyone has this luxury/privilege. 2. We have a voice and it’s important to use it. The more we write and speak, the better and more comfortable we become with visibility. 3. We all have something to teach or to learn. 4. We have the tools to be SEEN and HEARD-use them! (There is an old saying that women should be “Seen and NOT heard”, which is clearly bullshit.) 5. It will teach us tolerance and resilience. 6. Writing will help you to become a better reader. You will build more skills to know when someone is speaking/writing from the heart, because w
You can send encrypted memos that are only viable to the sender and receiver on Steemit. Even if you access Steemit blockchain from a different front end than steemit.com you cannot read the memo unless you are logged in with either account. All you need to do is put a pound sign in front of your memo and it will appear as a blank memo to anyone else. !(https://steemitimages.com/DQmeB63Qa6SESpb2KarywwdXaJNw6Xj6aTAjuFKe2sbmStG/image.png) I am not sure when this feature made it in, but it is extremely useful. I've tested a few times and works great. @twinner did some additional [testing](https://steemit.com/steemit/@twinner/today-i-learned-that-steemit-com-can-encrypt-memos-this-enables-secure-p2p-messaging-between-all-steemit-accounts) on it and is how I found out about this.
Thinking about family tonight, got me thinking about one of the craziest things that happened to me about ten years ago. I was adopted as a baby, and had known this from around the age of three. Basically, as soon as my parents thought I could understand, they told me. So it was never something unusual as far as I was concerned. I even started school, and when my friends were shouting the odds about have new shoes, and a new bag, I was telling everyone that I had two mums, so beat that! As I got older, my parents explained my personal story; that I had been the result of an affair, and my birth mum had gone back to her family, but obviously, without the other man's baby. Older still, and I had firmly decided that I had no interest in finding my birth family. After all, who wants that knock at the door, saying "guess who I am"? I loved my parents, never considered them to be anything other than my mum and dad. In my late 30's, my mum contracted secondary breast cancer. Only then, did I realise how selfish
Having maybe learned a thing or two from some of the people that I am following here on Steemit, note: “FOLLOWING” not stalking, just reading up on their posts, looking at how things are done by them, what all techniques they use and so on, I have come to one conclusion as to how to set things up for myself here and in my case in conjunction with my wife and eldest son. There are six of us in total in our household, my wife, our four kids and myself. So it’s not all that easy to come across something out there where all of us can get involved. Knowing that minors (kids under 18) are on other social networks the idea came up in one conversation that we should look at setting up accounts for our kids. So far to date they have nagged Sylvia (their mum) to post things up for them, like the “We’re going to have a Birthday party at Bowlarama” and so on. Which Sylvia did with pleasure as they have shown an interest in what she is doing and they too want to be a part of it. Now this all seemed to be a

I'm appreciating it ever more! I used to blog back in the day starting around 2005. I had a fairly good audience and regular commentators there. It is even more a diverse system on The Steemit. This is the place where we can all share in each others success. I always have much on my mind, for me it is a fairly perfect outlet of unloading thought and art therapy. ![20170814195553_glitch.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmVJg776RkTYesBVW6hnDdDrtibtqqTDf9d6TJmdvxQbyc/20170814195553_glitch.jpg) ![20170814195722_glitch.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmWfA3CbyR57XDuErwLN6nvP6GG7E4tXcAqJe2LdrHMW6i/20170814195722_glitch.jpg) ![Pics

![mindset.png](https://steemitimages.com/DQmekNgHzon68Lq7gNavsXYMknLW1vJZUPZPrdt9BVoksgM/mindset.png) If you could fix your mindset do you think you could achieve more? I'm certain of it. The fact that I work for someone else currently? Lack of confidence and anxiety. Stress? Mostly mindset. Analysis paralysis and procrastination? You guessed it ... ## What to do about it? Well I am on medication for the anxiety, lack of sleep, depression and panic attacks. I meditate. Sometimes. Occasionally I go to the gym. Mostly right now I need one good nights sleep. ## But one of the best things is to find someone to talk to. You might think everyone else is superhuman but really we are all dealing with our own stuff and trying to look brave. Talk to people. Think through what is holding you back. Get help ## Do you struggle with mindset? Got anxiety, depression or anything else going on? Please share in the comments ...

Writing for sites that you don’t own in the past was limited to article directories, but now blogs and websites regularly accept guest post submissions.

Without traffic to your blog or product you will simply not make any sales. I was writing blog posts and producing content to an audience that didn't even exist at the time. When it comes to content
