Hello Steemians! Hello Philippines!
I am here again sharing my journey to powering up. Well for those who doesn't know much about me I started here at the platform very recently as @bisayakalog. Overwhelmed by the appreciation and support by the curators here I have received a lot of support not only in my content but also to the charity events I have been to. Now I want to share and encourage new comers and those who are already in the platform for a while now.
As I have discussed in my previous blog the process of powering up and the reason for powering up I wanna sum it up again in this post.
Why Power up and how to power up?
We users help in promoting steemit to attract new users and investors. Users are rewarded by the content we make. While the investors makes steem and steem dollars value higher. But with users not investing back to the platform it can slowly decrease the value of steem. So we users must power up and buy steem for us to help the platform. During my first few post I made sure to make my rewards to 100%. In this way I easily gained higher steem power and reputation. This is for new comers who wishes to power up but still don't have sbd to buy steem. Here's what to do.
Click Advanced settings
You can see author rewards is in 50%
Choose power up 100%
By changing it to 100% all your reward from that post will automatically go to your steem power and trx. Ones you are able to increase your steem power your reputation increases and it will be easier for you to be noticed in the platform. And of course you have to be consistent with your post, it must be a quality post too.
For now I know I haven't powered up as big as the others but I am making it a habit. Although it's very tempting to cash out and use the reward you have received from the platform but let us also consider that without investments no good business will succeed. The same with steemit, it will fall and lose its value. So with the sbd that you have in your wallet use some of it to power up.
Follow the simple steps in powering up
Click Steem dollars and choose market
Choose buy steem and input the amount
Type your master key to confirm the transaction
Order placed and you now have steem
Click steem and choose power up
Type the amount and confirm
Transaction complete you now have powered up
Congratulations you have increased your reputation and helped steemit. Investing for something could sometimes be hard but if we keep on thinking of what we get in return we will not grow. Let's think that investing by powering up or delegating is a help for the platform to be stronger and better. It will not benefit one but for all.
