I got paid to Blog using Steemit!

If you’ve been following my blog, you may have noticed that I also mention Steemit a few times.

That’s because I blog on Steemit. And I get paid to do it.

Without getting into too much detail about the ins and outs, let me just explain that it’s a cryptocurrency blog. At the moment, a lot of people are on there who are crypto-geeks. I’m not. But I’m trying to get with the new trend as I believe it’s going to be the new brilliant thing.

You basically blog and people can upvote if they like the blog, which is where you earn money. The most upvotes, the more chance of getting money.

You also have a chance of getting a payout on upvoting blogs yourself. If you upvote on a blog that eventually does really well, expect a small cut of that.

Anyway, after finally getting my CoinBase account sorted (where I convert the cryptocurrencies into Sterling) I converted a small chunk of my earnings the other day and look what has finally gone into my account:

coinbase

That’s right, I have made (from a small chunk of what’s still in my account) £108 already!

The first £6 was a small payment (and a returned fee for verifying a bank account with CoinBase) and the second, was 100% earnings from Steemit!

Steemit – Blog and Earn!

I wrote a post about Steemit a while ago, probably months ago now, and I was really excited about it.

That fizzled out a few months ago, back in the summer, because although I became popular quite quickly on it, I had no way of cashing out.

Steemit uses cryptocurrencies, and although I was 100% committed to giving it a go and trying to learn a thing or two at least to cash out and earn some money writing, I was faced with lots of issues.

But since I have finally managed to get a cryptocurrency style account sorted (CoinBase) I can now cashout on my well-earned Steem Dollars!

Steemit

Here is a view of my Steemit account. It takes some time getting your head around it, but as a blogger, you can blog and earn money by people upvoting!

You too can contributing by upvoting other works. Even comment and interact. So come meet me, follow me, and I will certainly help upvote any writers, poets, photographers and artists alike, I only ask you help out in return!

This new thing called Steemit – earn to write!

So, I came across this website a while ago, called ‘Steemit’. A friend of mine introduced me to it. And it’s not bad! You actually earn money for blogging.

You can blog about anything, from photography and art, some people blog about cryptocurrencies and a lot of people, like myself, use it to blog about writing. I’ve posted a short story, wrote about how I create book cover designs, and posted up samples of my book(s).

I don’t know much about cryptocurrencies, but this is real money that can be converted into bitcoin and then you can subsequently sell into real money such as USD or GBP.

Only, I’ve found it extremely difficult, as a noobie in cryptocurrencies, to convert this steem and steem dollars into GBP (I’m British, don’t judge me!).

Now, it’s not as easy as going into your Steemit account and just selecting an option to cash out into your account, you have to use a website called blocktrades to transfer the steem or steem dollars into bitcoin and it transfers it into another account such as CoinBase. Bitcoin is therefore now in your CoinBase account!

Only, I’ve had massive issues getting my PayPal connected up to my CoinBase account, so seem to have hit a block in this cryptocurrency road!

I have the option to add a bank account, but to verify this bank account, I have to transfer a small fee to a bank in Estonia (which I will get charged for!)

Someone has mentioned that you can use another account called Wirex, not me, because I’m in the UK!

Or another one is Payaz, and I have no idea where my wallet address is to put into Blocktrades! If there is one at all!

So, watch this space, I’ve posted another blog post on my Steemit account asking for help!

If you know the answer to this, please do let me know! I’m tearing my hair out!
