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!

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!

Getting my head around WordPress…

So, I’ve been using WordPress for about a year now (I think I got a notification to say happy anniversary or something) and I’m still baffled by the thing!

I’ve mostly been using it as a blog, and set up a Wix account to use as my main website. But I see everywhere that WordPress is the biggest website host… so I’ve been dabbling in trying to understand it a bit more.

So, because I have all these posts, some posts are about my book; Rose Garden Sanatorium, others about my other book; It’s My Mistake. I have posts about author problems, I have posts about other crap too.

But can I arrange them into sections? Apparently not. There is a function in the ‘customize’ view to list a navigation, so to begin with I just added posts to that navigation, updating it frequently for my audience.

Then I realised I can add layers to it. So a page can have posts attached to it. So I thought that was brilliant, I can create a page for my Rose Garden Sanatorium book, another for my ‘It’s My Mistake’, and so on. But I can’t seem to have more than two posts per page and for some reason I have random pages turning up where it doesn’t show on the customise section.

And don’t even get me started on reaching people! Tags and categroies doesn’t seem to do anything for me!

Anyway, that’s my little rant over with… Might need to do some research into utilizing WordPress and maying do some training or something. Hopefully Udemy has something helpful!
