I changed or removed the names out of respect for the dead.
I grew up near Avenue U in Brooklyn, New York where you got your ass kicked if you liked the Mets instead of the Yankees. Gravesend, as the section is known, was mostly Italian-American and Roman-Catholic. I still have very fond memories of my neighbors. I lived there until I was about 12 years old (as a Met fan) and believe I was spared a Brooklyn beat-down simply because I was very young. I was also tall for my age and played on the local baseball team for Our Lady of Grace, and I was pretty good. I do remember a lot of arguments about 'Yankees vs Mets' but no one ever punched me in the face over it. I also remember getting into some fights when the government began busing some poor black kids from the housing projects into my school, but still, I felt safe.
Likes, comments, and shares are different forms of social engagement within social media. Giving Likes is really just an acknowledgement that you, well like what you see. Instagram is a social site built on Likes. They are the main form of engagement there. Other sites like Facebook and Twitter work more with comments and look to drive the conversation.
Summary: One of @tumutanzi's post on Steemit is found on sohu.com, which is one of the four famous portal websites. This exposes Steemit to a wider Chinese audience. However, my post is published by Sohu without my authorisation...
今天 @hannahwu 告诉我，Steemit登上了搜狐网站——中国四大门户网站之一，请看以下截图：
是的，这就是 @tumutanzi 我写的文章，登上了搜狐网站！我看了这篇文章在搜狐上的阅读量，已经有8000多了，乐观估计，应该有不少用户已经注册加入了Steemit。
What is it that you like about what you are selling or promoting? It is your challenge to transfer your passion to your content. And that is why an image content strategy is so important as an image can tell the opening story for you.
Adding a great picture that tells the story and writing a great marketing call to action is not a content strategy. It becomes a strategy when you post consistently, Each new post lends itself to the last. They relate in some way.When you become consistent in what you do you get known for what you do. And you start to build your personal brand awareness.
If food is your thing then you create great images around food, if it is car post about cars. Don’t mix them up.
If you add text to an image (and that is a very good idea) the
If you're planning to start a blog outside of Steemit, you're in the right place.
Since my username is @howtostartablog, why don't I actually write an article on how to start a blog? Lol! Mindblown ~
I've actually written a guide on how to start a blog like twice, so instead of re-writing everything, I'll just copy most of it from my already-written article. The original article is linked here.
For starters, WordPress is very blog friendly and you won’t regret picking WordPress in the long run. Once you get the hang of it, it’s actually quite easy to use.
There is also a huge community of WordPress bloggers, which makes it much easier to get help whenev
Until this week I didn’t realise I was a Steemit old timer, but now I’m coming up to a year on Steemit and lately several things have drummed it into me that I inhabit a totally different Steemiverse to newbs.
It was seeing a post about bandwidth issues that really brought it all home. I had no idea there were bandwith issues on Steemit. The post was telling people a bunch of tips to reduce their bandwidth usage. Like not repeatedly updating their posts. Pretty much all of the things they said to avoid are things I do constantly. For example, whenever I do a post I usually find another typo to edit the first 28 times I reread it.
I also recently saw a post by a newb saying he wanted to be spotted by a whale and receive the rewards he deserved. Being an intrusive old busybody I suggested that unless he included pictures on his posts and wrote more than one paragraph, that may not happen. He replied that
I spent nearly a decade building and eventually selling a tech blog business called ReadWriteWeb. In retrospect I sold it at the right time, 2011/12, because the pro blog business became much more difficult after then. Like many media people, I've been wondering how anyone but the really big players can make money in the Facebook and Twitter era. But I recently discovered Steemit, a promising new social media platform where the users can earn some coin too.
Steemit seems like an excellent implementation of blockchain, and the payments to bloggers and curators are obviously appealing. If you spend a lot of time curating content on Reddit every day, you’d no doubt prefer to earn money yourself rather than simply line the pockets of its owner Advance Publications (the parent company of Condé Nast). As for bloggers, well you know we’re
Holy fuck! That's a long time.
There has been ups, and then there have been downs, lots of downs.
Many have been the times I wondered:
"Why the hell am I doing this?"
"Why do I try so hard when everything I try don't seem to work?"
"How do those successful, younger people become so rich while I am so broke?"
"Is this worth it?"
Yeah. I think of all the above. In fact, I am willing to admit right here, right now that I am scared.
I am turning 32 and it feels like that there is no end in sight. I don't make a lot of money today. I am trying to. I love to write. So I write. And then I try to blend them all into a business.
But... it's been scary as fuck. Always. I do fear of growing to be 40, still living with my mom, broke, tired, single, alone or becoming that pervy old uncle who chases after young girls.
Ikken hissatsu. One strike, sure kill.
It is the standard karate practitioners aspire to: to finish the fight in a single blow. Combative oriented martial arts echo this principle. Jeet Kune Do aims to swiftly end fights with decisive strikes. Self-defence instructors advise students to defeat an attacker with three moves or three seconds. In Filipino Martial Arts, when weapons are in play, combat can be decided with a single stroke.
In movies, television and video games you'll see plenty of flashy techniques and drawn-out action scenes. During live demonstrations and exhibitions, performers will roll out complex and fancy kata. It may look beautiful, but it is not combat. It captures the artistic side of the discipline, but not the martial component.
If you train for real world applications, then you must align your training methodology with reality. Under the stress of a life-or-death encounter a cocktail of

Mathematics is the name given to a set of great knowledge base, mankind gathered in thousands of years. No doubt this knowledge have done wonders in our lives, still this knowledge isn’t liked by a huge population of humanity.
As a Math teacher background I witnessed the above on multiple occasions. This hate towards mathematics by many of our fellow humans made me to think about why do many of us feel math is useless, or not for them or very hard?
I did my own little research on this and talked to about 80 persons I knew who hated math. I analyzed their background (as all of them are my classmates, friends or relatives) and their way to learn things. Then I draw the following conclusions based on my findings;
1. Mathematics have d
With so many new users coming that want a share of the reward pool we have to question ourselves, what’s more important, Quality or Quantity? You can’t have both. But what really matters if you choose for Quality or Quantity, are the different factors. Let’s break it down!
Time and Money are the 2 things that are related to both Quality content or Quantity. When you take these 2 factors into account you get a feeling of which way you want to go. When you want to do something fast for money you make several articles and hope they get noticed. Because you did it fast you won’t earn as much since there is no value in it. When we look at examples on Steemit, the Quantity articles get less than $1. When you spend a lot of time into an article and really think about it and give it value it will cost you a lot of time but gives you
Hey person from the internets. Welcome to the magical place that is steemit. What I get paid to post stuff? How does this work? Is it legal? Yes it is. If you are not on this site get on it. ASAP. And then post an introduceyourself post. Also send me a hi in the comments :). This is, hopefully, the future of social media and blogging where people are rewarded for their content. For too long people have been posting their work and working hard and not seeing a dime for it.
So how does it work? You might be thinking that you see no ads or anything so how do people make money. Well you are getting a cryptocurrency called steem. There is so much of it that is divided out each day and the more votes you get, by people with voting power, the higher amount of the reward you will get. If you are new to cryptocurrency, do a google search and see how popular bitcoin is coming. It is on its way to 3k in value which is more than gold and might continue. Steem is even worth more than a US dollar. And the more peop
If you are looking for some unique content for a vintage-themed blog post, New Old Stock has a huge compilation of recovered vintage photographs that are without any known copyright. Most of these images were recovered from government agencies or estate sales over the years.
I hope you enjoy these photos I took of my travel down to San Diego today. I've always wanted to feel comfortable on the water. But for some reason the ocean scares me.

Here at Steemit, I want to be cautious and courteous about using images in my posts that might be the intellectual property of others. Having spent some time working in this field, it is important to note that citing the source of an image does not necessarily grant the right to republish it. So, I decided to dig for free-image gold.
Luckily, many options exist for usage of free images! Perhaps many of you already are familiar with royalty-free image warehouses, but for new bloggers and the rest of us, this might be helpful to individuals, and to us as a community.
Pixabay offers over a million plus free photos, illustrations, vector graphics, and even HD videos. The best part is that the images are free and can be used anywhere - no attribution is required, and the copyrights are completely released. Better yet, the images can also be modified. The Pixabay website has a great search tool that helps users narro
It's really popular and sexy to be an entrepreneur. Everyone wants to say it's their profession. It sounds hip, fun, and full of freedom. So why do I feel this trend is steering millions of people into more debt and struggles?
I've met more broke and in debt "entrepreneurs" than I can count. They are the majority. In my experience, this job description is synonymous with "barely making it" and living with their parents or with many roommates. Nothing wrong with either of these two living situations, but the problem lies with this desire to be something that isn't what they truly want.

I’ve been thinking about what makes a good comment and how to make real connections on Steem. Drawing on some of the lessons from a professional business writing course that I teach, I thought I’d share some writing advice (and make sure to implement it myself).
If you’ve read the post (and you should if you plan to comment on it), then it will be easy to avoid making a generic statement. Find something specific in the post that drew your attention--why did you click on it in the first place? Did any part of it make you think? Raise an interesting question? Engage you in some way? Comment on that.
Generic (weaker comment): Interesting post! Thanks for sharing!
