Blogging on Hive as a crypto n00b

Blogging on Hive as a crypto n00b.

Direct from the desk of Dane Williams.




Even as a crypto n00b you can and should start blogging on Hive.

How many times has this happened to you?

You sit down in front of the computer screen with your Hive front-end of choice (obviously it’s leofiance.io) open.

Blink...

Blink…

Blink… flashes the cursor at the top left hand corner of that white screen.

No matter how hard you try to twist your brain, you just can’t think of what to blog about on Hive.

Frustration, anxiety and imposter syndrome sets in.

By this point, you’re not even kidding yourself anymore.

Nothing is getting published on your blog today and all that momentum you’ve built up, quickly dissipates.

Start documenting your Web3 journey on Hive

But I’m here today to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way!

One of the coolest things about creating content via the LeoFinance Web3 blogging platform is that you can change everything…

…without actually changing anything at all.

Hear me out here.

You see, by choosing to participate in our beautiful Web3 ecosystem, you’re already right on the cutting edge of both finance and tech.

By showing up and participating in the community every day, you already have everything you need to write great content and ultimately make money blogging on Hive.

Stop fretting about what you know or most likely don’t know, and simply start documenting your own crypto journey on Hive.

When you stop and think about it, some of the best content creators aren’t even trying to create at all.

All they’re doing is simply documenting the journey that they’re on.

Can you do that, even as a n00b?

Of course you can!

An argument could even be made that you can do it in an even more relatable fashion than someone further along their own journey.

Shock horror, but whales telling people how rich they are in a weekly update just doesn’t do it.

But listening to someone come across extremely relatable roadblocks that you’ve faced or are still facing, now that’s content that resonates.

As a crypto n00b you’re actually more relatable

The most exceptional bloggers on Hive and LeoFinance actually aren’t the technical wizards who write posts full of jargon.

They’re not crypto pros or any different to you at all.

They’re the ones simply sharing personal experiences.

Humanising the crypto journey and creating content that people can relate to.

If you’re a crypto n00b who is just starting out on their journey, you actually have some of the most valuable insights to share.

You can literally save people’s lives!

Okay, that’s a little dramatic.

But you can most certainly help them save time and money as they make their way forward on a journey of their own.

That’s pretty damn valuable if you ask me.

Final thoughts about Blogging on Hive as a crypto n00b

I want you to stop viewing the multitude of activities, communities, tokens and pages that make up Hive’s Web 3 ecosystem as distractions.

Instead, just start documenting the way you use and interact with them.

Share YOUR experiences.

No matter how much of a n00b you think you are, people can and will relate to you if you’re open and honest about the journey you’re on.

Flip your mindset and staring at that bloody blinking cursor at the top left hand corner of your screen will become a thing of the past.

Best of probabilities to you.

Dane.

PS. When I say some of the most exceptional bloggers on Hive and LeoFinance aren’t the technical wizards who write posts full of jargon and are simply the ones sharing personal experiences, who comes to mind?

Tag them in a comment and let’s see what happens.

I tend to create posts from within Ecency, and something I'd love to be able to do is store more than one draft at a time. That way I could put ideas together for more than one post, then work on each until it's ready.

Of course, it is always possible that the functionality is there but because I'm a bit of a n00b I just haven't found it yet !

I'm not sure about Ecency, but I know LeoFinance has that feature and I think PeakD does too! If you prefer to continue posting from Ecency, maybe you could store the drafts in one of those and copy them over to Ecency when they are ready.

That's if Ecency doesn't have that functionality... maybe they do hehe

The only downside to LeoFinance is that some things don't correctly all the time so you might have to click preview and that is a few steps extra that I don't like.

I am talking about the preview post and it automatically saves your drafts periodically. The page doesn't really show it correctly on the right side and you have to click view draft to see if it works out or not. In the end, it's a UI issue.

What does ecency do better than Leofinance.io?

There's no denying that their front-end looks fantastic.

Their front-end designers have done an EXCELLENT job.

From the point of view of an end user, LeoFinance could and should be 100x better than it is.

A few little things that Ecency does which LeoFinance doesn't:

  1. The ability to magnify images without opening in a new tab.
  2. Aggregating up and down votes together to not display ugly broken hearts to readers.
  3. Showing version history of edited posts.
  4. Ability to tip old posts directly via the post.
  5. The ability to embed Tweets simply by pasting a link (this is PeakD actually).

I used peakd often and it has if not all of these functionalities.

I am trying so hard to get used to leofinance interface, frontend, and all.. As I use it day by day, I am getting used to it.

But if someone asks that I choose any frontend on Hive, I wouldn't hesitate to choose peakd. That layout does everything I want with no stress.

The main reason I use the LeoFinance front-end is to earn 100% LEO when I publish a post from there. Along the way it helps for SEO purposes.

Outside those 2 reasons, I use Ecency mainly for admin functions and notifications while I use PeakD mainly as a replacement for D.Buzz as well as for delegation management.

I think PeakD is the best for it. As much as I love LeoFinance, some of the stuff doesn't load up until you hit the preview so PeakD for drafts is better. When you are done with your post, you can always copy-paste it into Ecency if you want to post from there.

Yeah, as tokenizedsociety society mentioned, you can definitely store more than 1 draft via the leofinance.io front-end.

They've really improved their drafts section, focusing on ensuring that posts always autosave and that it's all but impossible to lose content if something happens.

Come and check it out.

Ecency won't let you save multiple drafts, but it offers a feature just as useful and you can use it to save your drafts: Snippets

Normally reserved for bits and pieces of content you refer to repeatedly (including "signature text" and commonly-used Markdown patterns), you can add a new snippet so that it is a draft of a future post.

If a front-end can't do something in the normal way, maybe it offers a workaround which can accomplish the same thing. This is one such time.

You're welcome! Just take a look through all the options your preferred front-end has, see what limitations it has, then see if there is a workaround for it. Also see is there is al anternate way to access the workaround.

Getting back to Snippets:

  • As you use Ecency to type your draft, the Snippets feature can be accessed from 2 places: the area where you login, and the toolbar near the Emoji widget. The first I knew about from the start, but the second I only discovered recently.

Ecency supports multiple drafts. But this is only available on Ecency desktop not on mobile.

Usually, I write on Google Keep Notes, and I highly recommend it (if you don't mind storing your drafts off-chain).

Good advice Dane. I tried to suggest to those who are being kicked from Web2 to join Hive, but for many they don't want to take the leap. Its a shame, but it should be getting easier for them with Hive Lite accounts, Liketu and buzz now leading the charge for Hive.

When it comes to Web3, the underlying tech on networks like Hive is already here.

It allows dApps to solve the problems of data ownership, censorship and allowing users to benefit from the value a network generates (rather than a tech company).

Once they get the front-end processes, the switch from Web2 to Web3 for normies will be seamless, simply because Web3 dApps will do everything better than their Web2 predecessors.

Normies don't care about the underlying tech, they just care that their problems are easily solved.

Just gotta give it time and development.

This is good advice. When I first started, I write a few "Hive tutorials" for beginners, but I was writing for MYSELF. Some Hive things take some learning or just thinking differently. I'm embarrassed to say how long it took me to grasp why we have multiple tokens and why we have so many keys. I made a couple of how to vids, step by step for simple things for newcomers (again, for me to learn!). I wrote about 6 posts to chronicle my reluctant start into deity from knowing zero to now knowing zero plus one or two. These simple what I did posts or how to do this posts earned some of my best early rewards.

This is a really good way of putting it!

This format of writing posts is actually really helpful.

As a prime example, just look at your latest mystery of null post.

I've been here for years and I had the same questions around null that you asked in that post.

It drew me in and was genuinely helpful.

The format works!

Maybe a solution is just have your notes app open and take little notes as you go about your day to day reading/processes here on Hive?

This is good advice. I do it sometimes and should probably do it more often. Everyone has something they can teach others, no matter how much of a n00b they are :)

Another thing I'd add is that the blank "new post" screen can be very intimidating so what I do is just start typing whatever comes to my mind related to the topic I want to write about.

It doesn't have to be the first sentence of the post. Sometimes is just a loose sentence I'll squeeze somewhere in the middle and heck, sometimes I end up not using it at all but that little trick gets me going and before I realize I'm already halfway through a decent article

Nice hack!

Worrying about getting the exact format of your post correct can be intimidating (like intro - body - conclusion).

So just writing bits and pieces now, then worrying about structure later is a good way to overcome the anxiety.

Sometimes I also get to a point where I don't have ideas about what to write or what I'm going to talk about in a video. Sharing your experience and documenting your journey is a great starting point. You don't have to work so hard to get to the next blog post idea or video idea. Consuming content also helps you share your view and come up with a new idea of what you can talk about next.

We all can express ourselves in Web 3.0 and be a part of the next big thing.

There's no denying that the onboarding process and front-ends need a lot of work.

But like you said, with just a little effort, it can already be picked up by pretty much anyone if they truly want to be early movers.

For the rest, we've just gotta give the space time to develop.

I have no doubt Web3 will become a normal part of everyone's digital life in the near future.

In following your commenting strategy, suppose I run into a post which has hundreds of comments and I go through the entire post looking to see where I can respond.

My instinct is to go through them all and comment to as many as I can. Should I keep doing that, or should I stop at some number and move on to a different post in order to spread out engagement efforts? I ask because time becomes a factor in this case.

Can people relate to blogging on HIVE as a Hive N00b? :)

Still trying to figure out why there are so many front-end websites all doing the same thing (and my voting power is showing 0 for LEO while a few cents on Ecency)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

First up, welcome to Hive :)

Let me try and answer the 2 questions you have.

Still trying to figure out why there are so many front-end websites all doing the same thing

The layers of Hive rewards

Try to think about Hive and the different tokens you can earn in terms of layers.

Layer 1 - HIVE rewards
Layer 2 - Community token rewards like LEO, CTP, SPT

No matter which front-end you use to post, you will always earn HIVE at the base layer.

But by posting via community front-ends (or tagging them), you will also earn layer-2 community tokens on top of your HIVE.

So for example I posted this post via leofinance.

When I receive an upvote, I will first earn HIVE rewards depending on how much HIVE the voter has powered up (staked).

But as I'm using LeoFinance, I will also earn LEO rewards depending on how much LEO the voter has staked.

Front ends simply display/organise content differently

Front-ends and the ability to earn these layered rewards show the real power of Hive's Web3 ecosystem.

leofinance.io chooses to organise content depending on how popular it is amongst voters with LEO staked.

But that is completely different to how ecency organises it via how popular it is amongst voters with HIVE staked.

The content on your account is the same, but front-ends just use different metrics to display and organise it.

This becomes super powerful when it comes to censorship-resistance because if 1 front-end doesn't display your content for whatever reason, you always have the opportunity to use another.

All front-ends are doing is displaying content published on the Hive blockchain in a way that works for them.


(and my voting power is showing 0 for LEO while a few cents on Ecency)

How much your upvote is worth

This all depends on how much of each token you personally have staked.

I can see in your wallet that you have 1,184.104 HP (staked HIVE), but you have zero LEO staked.

This means that when you upvote this blog for example, your HIVE upvote will be much bigger than your LEO vote.

Remember, ecency organises content via HP, so shows your upvote in terms of HIVE.

On the other hand LeoFinance organises content via LEO POWER, so shows your upvote in terms of LEO.

Thank you. This is very clear.

One more question, is there any point to upvote (for example upvote your post) using LeoFinance when I have 0 LEO Power, as opposed to if I had more voting power with other Layer 2 like CTP or SPT, that would be more beneficial to the author?

In other words, is this vote practically worth nothing from the perspective of LEO?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

0

From my perspective as the vote receiver

On this particular post, I can only earn the layer-2 tokens that I've tagged and thus created a front-end version of.

These being:

  • HIVE-ENGINE (BEE)
  • HIVEHUSTLERS (HUSTLER)
  • CTP
  • CENT
  • NEOXIAN (NEOXAG)
  • PALNET (PAL)
  • LEOFINANCE (LEO)

So if you have upvoted me and have any of those tokens staked, then I will earn rewards in these tokens as well.

Anything else you have staked (say SPT) won't come to me, because there is no Splintertalk version of this post.

From your perspective as the vote giver

But this also means that if you have a massive SPT stake and vote on my post, then you won't earn any SPT curation rewards.

This is why you see some people delegate their layer-2 stakes to alt accounts that focus purely on curating within that specific community.

A new Hiver/Leo with a minimal stake should upvote anyway if for no other reason that to get the clock moving on reaching dusting threshold. This is the magic number at which a curator or author (or curator and author) begin to receive notifications of those rewards.

Assuming that a post is set to receive rewards as either 100% HP (or 100% LEO Power) or a 50/50 split between HP and HBD, dusting threshold is set for USD 0.020 (2 cents). It will take a while to accumulate enough HP (or LEO Power) before the notifications arrive, but arrive they will. This is another reason why engagement is so important.

To reach dusting threshold faster, become a follower of both @dustbunny and @dustsweeper. These accounts will give you enough "dust" to give your upvotes a bit of heft as your HP/LP accumulate.

Front ends simply display/organise content differently

At worst, censored content can be viewed using a blockchain explorer. This method will show the raw content used to make a post. Text, Markdown, and HTML will be displayed as raw data is you use the blockchain explorer to view content. It's not fun doing this, but there are moments it comes in handy.

It's great to see SEO start to get more attention.

Hive's 7 day reward window has always frustrated me because it seems to disincentivise SEO-optimised, evergreen content.

But hopefully with the integration of ad revenue for LEO staker's, this will start to change.

Do you now have any plans to use your skills to post a series and try and actually rank content?

As someone who is new, I'd love to hear the thing you find to be the most weird here.

Maybe something you think should be done differently?

Let us know :)

Hmmm.. I didn't find any weird things here. I just found page load on leofinance is a bit slow. I don't know whether it is because of my unstable internet connection or it indeed slow.

And I found some tokens in my wallet that I don't know how I got it and where to find some info about those tokens.

I still figuring out what to write on leofinance.

Welcome to LeoFinance! As you look around the community, you'll find lots of niches where you can contribute content. If it's related to crypto or finance in any way at all, it's welcome here. Not all posts have to be about a crypto or the markets or about a rise in interest rates.

Try answering this question:

  • How does my topic intersect with crypto or finance?

Answer this question, and you can post here.

Consider the case of rapper 50 Cent. Assuming that the rapper name is based on 50 cents out of 1 dollar, how much is 0.500 USD in Bitcoin? Ethereum? Hive? PolyCub? Cub? Leo? POB? Dogecoin? Splintershards? Starbits? Make those calculations (or others), and turn some pic of him into a meme featuring the current crypto prices for 50 Cent.

If movies are your thing, see how they handle certain topics. One strand of fabric which goes through the John Wick movies is how decentralized the economy is within the environment of paid assassins there (especially with precious metals).

Find a way to intersect your favorite subject with crypto or finance, publish your content, and engage like crazy so that people become familiar enough with your account name to give your content a viewing. Then repeat.

Wow, a new point of view. I never thought about connecting what I love or what I am interested in with crypto. I'll give it a try.

Thank you very much for the suggestion. I very much appreciate it.

You're welcome! You'll be surprised at what you can find for posting.

There are Leos who post about coin collecting and stamp collecting, so there is room for other types of finance posts.

Even if you still have trouble finding your niche or a way to intersect crypto or finance with your interest, keep in mind that "finance" is a broad umbrella term. It also includes topics such as personal finance, home budgeting, home economics, greater productivity from limited resources (such as urban gardening), person-to-person loans, negotiations at pawn shops, finding greater success at eBay or Etsy, making money with stock photography-- anything which helps you or others to make your money do more.

Great to hear mate :)

What are you thinking of sharing?

A new series or just something more ad hoc?

I've been on hive just for a month and few days now and I've been stuck with the peakD interface ever since I started because I felt so comfortable with the GUI (graphics & user interface) I have seen numerous features on peakD that have not been witnessed on essency and the rest.

coming into the Leo finance app which is more portable and friendly than the web version I love the fact that it puts you into one pot and makes you focus on only one community which is the Leo finance. In additional the interface is a bliss but one of my most adorable feature on them is the dark mode theme.
If this should be implemented on the Leo app, then I may parck out of peakD

Happy to hear that you've discovered LeoFinance and that it's easy enough for you to almost fully convert :)

One of the coolest things about having a Web3 Hive account is that you can use all the different interfaces together.

While I do all my posting, commenting and voting via LeoFinance, I still use the PeakD interface for their Hive wallet interface.

Just to add to what you mentioned.

One can also visit and comment on the post of others when unsure of what to post about. Once visiting enough posts I'm sure one will find some inspiration to create one themselves.

Dear @forexbrokr, we need your help!

The Hivebuzz proposal already got important support from the community. However, it lost its funding a few days ago and only needs a few more HP to get funded again.

May we ask you to support it so our team can continue its work this year?
You can do it on Peakd, ecency, Hive.blog or using HiveSigner.
https://peakd.com/me/proposals/199

Your support would be really helpful and you could make a difference.
Thank you!

Not knowing what to blog about happens to me a lot, as I am not much of a writer or an artistic type of person. When I get stuck, I default back to Actifit or Splinterlands!!

The only thing I'll say about using those 2 templates is that you've gotta try and stand out from the crowd!

That's great advice. I started on Steemit years ago then had to start over because I lost my freaking keys. And it happened right after the fork, which means I lost access to over $1,000 in crypto on both accounts. Pissed me off. It pissed me off so much, in fact, that it took me a couple of years before I was willing to jump back on Hive. Now I'm posting like a n00b and feeling the groove.

Monetizing conversation is a fantastic way of onboarding people into the crypto, it's the market manipulation which puts people off.
