Happy Valentine’s day STEEMIANS

So its that time of year once more where florists all around the world charges up to ten folds on flowers and sales of chocolates soars and restaurants just cash in promising the most romantic dinner with your loved one.

For me …. its just a simple date with my ex-girlfriend/partner for life/wife . Treasuring every moment with this amazing woman is truly something which I value.

Happy Valentine’s Day @ireenchew .. xoxo

and for all you steemians out there … may you be able to share it with your loved one. Happy Valentine’s day to you !

A impromptu meetup with steemians

It was a very last minute decision to hop on a flight and head back to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah as there was something which I had to do

And as always I took the opportunity to meetup with all steemians who was around town and had the time. Being all part of STEEMXP community and also TEAMMALAYSIA , we had a breif discussion as to the current markets and also direction of growing STEEM adoption in Malaysia.

its the Chinese New Year celebrations here too

Looking at 2019, it is going to be a lot of speculations and fud in the crypto space. I do have confidence in the blockchain technology and its surely going to strive into something greater then what it is known for today.

We will however always push for growth in this region with a few more events being line up throughout the year, we have already begun planning workshops and more talks around the STEEM ecosystem. With more and more amazing DAPPS being developed by independent developers, STEEM will surely be one of the strongest blockchain & community around.

Don’t forget our next event is just 2 weeks away in Penang and once everyone is back to work after the Chinese New Year holidays we can push and plan for more confirmed events.

Would love for you to support our campaign on fundition for running all these offline events and promoting adoption of STEEM

Have a brilliant Weekend !

Steem Presentation Slides

Finally got the time to clean up my slides a little bit and share my presentation slides with everyone. Hope it gives an idea on how I normally share about STEEM to the general public.

slideshare by @bitrocker2020

In my typical presentation I try not to be too technical about Witnesses or even where the money comes from. However the focus on what STEEM blockchain is all about and the various projects and communities which are already using some of these amazing apps like PARTIKO, STEEMPRESS and also FUNDITION.

If anyone ask How Can I Cash Out ?

I always tell them to earn some STEEM first thru their posting and when they want to $$$ then send me a message or they can just google it.

If they ask Where the money comes from ?

I normally tell them … the blockchain handles the amount of STEEM everyone gets and this is fueled by posts which they do and upvotes they receive. However earn some STEEM from they posts first to understand better

The objectives of doing a basic introduction is mainly to get new users to start posting and we want to show them that there are so many ways to post and so many apps out there that serves different purposes. eg. STEEMHUNT or even DTaste or Tasteem which is used for recepies or restaurants review.

Penang Steem Sharing Bootcamp

A little reminder that we are running our Penang Steem Sharing Bootcamp once more on the 24th Feb 2019 and it will be held at The Settlements Penang. Time 2:30pm – 5:30pm

If you are around Penang, do hop on over and lets catch up. Thanks to FUNDITION and everyone else who helped to promote this drive to get more users on STEEM.

The Settlements Co-Working Space in Penang

It was only just last month where we held our first Penang event in 2019 and I would like to give a shoutout to the venue that provided the venue which was a really nice co-working space called The Settlements.

The Settlements Penang is located in a MSC status building. If you do not know what MSC is , in a nutshell it stands for ( Multimedia Super Corridor a Malaysian Govt initiative to provide special perks to tech companies ) However as part of the guidelines, having a company which is MSC Status, you would require to reside your office in a MSC zone / building.

The office environment setup by The Settlements Penang is suitable for young entrepreneurs who just started their spanking new company however does not have the necessary funds to rent an entire office space yet but would like to have the perks of an office.

The Settlements Penang

You have the option in taking a room or if you are always out and about, you can just take the hot desking where you are free to come in and out as you like and if you require to have meetings, there are full facilities meeting rooms at your disposal as well.

The location of The Settlements is within driving distance to almost everywhere within the Penang area so its convenient and is satisfactory for most aspiring tech companies.

We had our first Steem Sharing Session here and I do love the colors in the presentation room that was provided. Thanks to The Settlements in allowing us to use this place and we would be having our next session here as well … unless something else comes up.

Lets create the largest steempress blog network

Have you wondered why your wordpress blogs does not seem to get any visitors or views ? Or are you interested in monetizing your wordpress blogs even more and not only from STEEM blockchain ?

One of the ways would be to optimize your blogs is to have other people linking back their WordPress sites back to yours. This is a method used by numerous SEO companies .

I’m not a SEO expert however I do know that by linking all our wordpress sites together we would be able to help each other promote everyone’s wordpress blogs and perhaps be able to push more traffic to our blog sites.

By linking all our wordpress blogs together we will be able to rank our websites even better and will give us opportunity to bring more web traffic to our blog site.

If you would like to participate in this do fill up this form below. I will consistently update all on the progress and you would be able to import everyone else link to be placed in your own blog site.

All links can be in a separate PAGE or even in your footers on your blogs. With more traffic coming to your websites, you would even be able to monetize it better by using ADS Network.

If you don’t want to fill up the form, just leave the link of your STEEMPRESS site in the comments below and I’ll get it into the form. You can also just place the links of STEEMPRESS blogs which you know so I am able to take action on it

If you do not have a WordPress site yet and always wanted to start one, do leave a comment below so that we can start helping each other to create one.

Hope you all have a great weekend ahead and I’m looking forward in participation from everyone who is currently on WORDPRESS using STEEMPRESS.
