Post for #Newbies wondering "How to get engagement on DESO?" If you are new here and wondering, how do I get more engagement on my posts, here are a few tips: 1. Post at the right times and spread out your posts: @OpenProsper will tell you the best times to post are 8am to 10am EST. While you can and should experiment with other times, make sure that you reclout some of your posts during the day around this time so that it gets the attention of the US audience. Spreading out your posts might help reach more people too. 2. Visual Elements catch the attention of users. So, add an image, convert your message into a quick infographic like the one here (Canva has some cool infographic templates that make it easy to build these in minutes) and in general mix and match your content so that anyone who visits your profile does get a variety of images and text. 3. Engage Engage Engage: Given the platform is new and people barely get any engagement on their posts, you can actually become a super-star by engaging with and appreciating posts of other people. Keep a set of 10-15 canned appreciations if you like, but make sure you mix and match and also diamond the posts you like to make yourself visible. 4. Pick up the Trending Topics and express your Point of View (especially if it is a counter-point) and make sure you say it even if some people (including the core team) may not like it. There are too many hype boys out here that some diverse opinion will help you get noticed. 5. Use various tools available to accelerate your engagement: - @PollMe to create Polls - @CloutCast to get more paid engagement on your posts - @Cuprite / @CloutPub to gate some of your content (like I am doing this post) - @Creatiers to create your profile and skills and post your offers - @Entre / @Vibehut / @ChimeIn rooms - NFTs on @SuperNovas / @NFTz / @Polygram - What else did I miss? 6. Be where the audience is: A lot of the action still happens outside of the platform. This could be on Telegram, Discord Groups and Clubhouse. Make sure you make your presence felt as and when you have the time. Help out projects that are part of the community since that really is the Web3 way and help out could be as simple as telling a few friends, reclouting their posts and / or giving them feedback. 7. Good Content always gets good engagement: This is probably the most important point. So, I left it for the end. This cannot be stated enough. Spend the time and effort to create good content and of course do not hesitate to repurpose it if needed (if it's evergreen content like this one). PS: If you know someone who might benefit from this post, make sure you tag them and let them know and also reclout the post. Thanks for reading so far. Diamonds help get engagement and reach. So, don't hesitate if you think this is helpful. :-) https://images.deso.org/eaf7681716e16665e706b490643e963aacfb367c5d2b7f69799a280e3b43e782.webp newbies @randhir

Newbies Tutorial: Hive Security ![bruno-kema.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/23x1HuFeJcV9KPiptgso6jc39vcRsRG1vCx1CLxFAiRikh2EjFbebr5Ze8cdKhrFB4H5e.png) Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? It is a marvelous day indeed and I am looking forward to all that can be achieved. My post today will be on the next topic for the Newbies Initiative Program where I will be talking about **HIVE SECURITY**. https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://images.hive.blog/DQmcnAnsqHA4KMYRqnS9QzWMpQUxM71wRhKabXz7paozHKJ/hl_footer.png As we all know, Hive is a lot of things to all of us. It is not just a platform for making posts, it is a means of livelihood for some people, seeing the amount of income that can be generated from it. And to that effect, it has to be made as secure as possible so that everyone that operates on the platform can do so with absolute peace of mind. In this post, we will be discussing two sub-topics: <center>**1. HIVE KEYS <br> 2. ACCOUNT RECOVERY**</center> _Now let us get to it...._ https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://images.hive.blog/DQmcnAnsqHA4KMYRqnS9QzWMpQUxM71wRhKabXz7paozHKJ/hl_footer.png # <center>HIVE KEYS</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://images.hive.blog/DQmcnAnsqHA4KMYRqnS9QzWMpQUxM71wRhKabXz7paozHKJ/hl_footer.png Your Hive account is basically under lock for protection, and you are the only one given access to it. And the only way you can access your account and make use of it is with your keys. These are different from passwords because they are more complex and are difficult to keep to memory. This way, it makes it harder to hack into an account. There are four types of keys presently on Hive and they have different uses in the blockchain. I will list them below: **MEMO KEY**: This is the least powerful key on the blockchain and it is also the least used. It can be used to send and view private messages. ![memo key.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/EoeMDuPyMqi2VD2AJAe9uNAYKjLxQ8GVXfLYsiY3jBFzL8tHeMirkfqWQNhcd3NX49v.png) **POSTING KEY**: This is required for making posts and comments on the blockchain. And also you need the key to follow accounts, upvote and reblog posts, and even mute accounts. ![posting key.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/EoKCeEQWYJdu81J6gNauETRwyeDFPT1snAUhWpU2z5LbfGp9Pn8FVMRoibxbq3VRrSM.png) **ACTIVE KEY**: This particular key has even more uses. It can be used for Hive Power up or down. Also, it can be used for HBD conversions, voting for witnesses, etc. ![active key.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/48K9D11wNEr5dmDBzGwKrS2gxkPeuR3cs2scDcSBVqvakuo1wT9QSgC1V8Xj9wS5bn.png) **OWNER KEY**: This is the most powerful key on the blockchain and the one that should be guarded most judiciously. It can be used to reset all other keys, and even recover your account. ![owner key.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/23vsrFxGPowFBEzzQnLtTnwt71f6G8zQwKbazLn5NGx6KnkRp5EBbK1piinziy5q1YgJC.png) **MASTER KEY**: This is the one key that can be used in the event that you would need to generate another password. It is this key that will be required of you. In the picture below, the Master key is the password written at the top of the page. You will find this in the file containing that was sent to you when you first opened an account on Hive. ![IMG_20220413_144557~2.jpg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/23tw8AehK42QYNxnGbxwebrDK33F1pUDDyhDKiwVhj34LCkvwgGArx2gVg16UH1jDiQxQ.jpg) So, now that we have covered all the keys, how do we find them in the blockchain? https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://images.hive.blog/DQmcnAnsqHA4KMYRqnS9QzWMpQUxM71wRhKabXz7paozHKJ/hl_footer.png ## <center>STEPS</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://images.hive.blog/DQmcnAnsqHA4KMYRqnS9QzWMpQUxM71wRhKabXz7paozHKJ/hl_footer.png **1.** When you open up your blog, click on “WALLET”. ![WhatsApp Image 2022-04-05 at 12.35.11 PM.jpeg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/23tkpRzpghHg8yYpCNUXdLB6cNk1JfxVtcTP6TekxLJK6oR5ikNW5Xbxk3arDykDBLajz.jpeg) **2.** Next, you click on “Keys and Permissions”. And that takes you to your keys. Don’t forget to keep them safe. ![WhatsApp Image 2022-04-05 at 12.18.16 PM.jpeg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/23zS7mGsdmP2jPVb2yvR7XHGCBWxaE1fX8Z4Q5u2ic4xqngLSPKRby9XjgZGfie4bofJG.jpeg) And now that we are done with keys, let us move on to the next sub–topic. https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://images.hive.blog/DQmcnAnsqHA4KMYRqnS9QzWMpQUxM71wRhKabXz7paozHKJ/hl_footer.png # <center>ACCOUNT RECOVERY</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://images.hive.blog/DQmcnAnsqHA4KMYRqnS9QzWMpQUxM71wRhKabXz7paozHKJ/hl_footer.png In the event that your account has been lost, like if you got hacked, there are measures that have been put in place to ensure that your account can be recovered. All these can be done provided you follow the required steps. And I will teach you how. First of all, I need to tell you what a Trustee is. A Trustee is an account that has been attached to yours, so that in the event of you losing your account the Trustee will be used to help you recover it. It is also called a Recovery Account. And you can find out yours at https://hiveblocks.com/@username. You will find out how to recover your account in the following steps. #### STEPS 1.Go to this link https://reazuliqbal.com/HiveAccountRecovery/ 2.Click on “Recover Account”. ![recover account.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/23qrbPzDCe5GedBkfw3r14QvPNup4BzDMQeo8bfJqV6AZqX8PTmXwb4LLatWZGBBoFRGZ.png) 3.Follow the instructions as detailed there. You must first of all generate a new password so you can be given a new Public Owner Key. ![generate password.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/23xf97SEMgNPY34SoTpDtaKTsX3VUwmk5vu6bps2zY3gLzijdMETfm2ri1gdevDNZ4muZ.png) 4.Send the Public Owner Key to the Trustee. 5.At the final step, put in the required details and click on “Recover Account”. ![recover account 2.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/bruno-kema/23wXQn7QX1sV1511o9rSY5BjqDAj7ou1bbfWTzNowHX3uU1Lx5zSwsosSAx5FBVGkxJs7.png) https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://images.hive.blog/DQmcnAnsqHA4KMYRqnS9QzWMpQUxM71wRhKabXz7paozHKJ/hl_footer.png So friends, this is basically all that we need to know when it comes to Hive security. It is not enough to know these steps though. You have to make sure you keep your keys perfectly safe, in a place you can easily get to them in the event of anything. And also, avoid clicking on phishing links are these are what hackers use to get into accounts. https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png #### <center>QUESTIONS AND TASK TO BE GIVEN ON THIS TUTORIAL</center> https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png And that wraps it up for today’s tutorial, read through it carefully and if you have any questions, it will be treated on the [Smile Discord Server](https://discord.gg/wyhVUvt) on Sunday the 17th of April by 6PM GMT. And after that the next task will be given. Do well to ask your questions during the meeting. <center>_Thank you all for reading..._</center> newbies @brunokema

Onboarding Callie0306 on hive/ an industrious woman and a very good entrepreneur Hi hivers ![IMG-20220413-WA0002.jpg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/royalsam/EpGScxSaD2fEn9MXPoFWz3BzJr1Bb7PFSyZDLATDPkg3yFRnA3YQuZg4CFETBMU7fG6.jpg) Hive has been a very cool avenue to showcase someone talent and also to learn more about different cultures. @callie0306 is a woman of integrity and honour, I happened to be her friend and her neighbour at where am staying. For some times now have been seeing her using her hand,needle,beads to make a bead bag which is exceptional, not every human being can do it, in short maybe 5% of people does that. I was overwhelmed and happy about what she does, I was like instead of doing this alone, why don't you come to hive and showcase your talent and let people learn from you what you do and most importantly you will be making money too and she agreed to, so I on-board her to show case her talent.

NEWBIES TUTORIAL : THE DO’S AND DON’T OF HIVE ![BAAEB2BB-460F-4EE4-BEE2-6CC180989497.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/prayzz/23wgTrKrYqdXiCdSEWiMQK7hvTNyWUzdG9XRddxveF2sWNf778Zay1ReiCsWxc8sA2Di3.png) Good day everyone and welcome to the second stage of the Newbies Initiative. Today we will be talking about the **"do's and don'ts of hive"** which are the unwritten rules but are very important points that if taken for granted might end up causing a user to get downvoted to oblivion here on hive. Many of us already know some of these rules and many of us don’t. Some of us have even gone against some of this rules and are currently being punished for it. Well hopefully after today’s class, many of us would know the do’s and don’t of hive and will avoid going against them. I will love to begin today’s class with Plagiarism. https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png ## <center>PLAGIARISM</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png _According to Google.._ > <center>_Plagiarism is the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own._</center> But in lame man terms, Plagiarism is simply stealing. Taking credit for another person’s work and it is highly prohibited here on hive. Anyone caught stealing anyone’s content and passing it as their own would be punished. There are some communities like the Hive Learners community who have put people in place to punish offenders like that and they will do it even before you get caught by the Hive watchers, the people I said will most likely downvote you to oblivion. And for those who don’t know what downvoting is, it’s simply removing the reward on your post until it gets to a stage where you’re unable to make a post anymore on hive. So no form of plagiarism is allowed here on hive. We want hundred percent originality and if you’re to take something from the internet that doesn’t belong to you, make sure to state it right in your post that it doesn’t belong to you. In most situations, it’s best you write it in quotes just like I wrote the definition of plagiarism up there in quotes because I got it from Google. Another thing we will be discussing today is Sourcing. https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png ## <center>SOURCING</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png We must have seen a lot of pictures on hive with a link mostly written as “source” right under the picture. Well that’s just a way of the author telling us that the image used in that post doesn’t belong to him or her so therefore, he’s leaving a link that would direct us to where he got that image from. Sourcing is just as important as plagiarism because if you don’t source your images and they don’t belong to you, it’s the same thing as stealing someone else’s work. So we have to make sure we source our pictures if they don’t belong to us and if they do, we have to state it below that the images used belonged to us. Just in case we don’t know how to source an image, it’s very simple. After copying the link of the website where you downloaded the picture from, all you have to do is <center>```[Source]( Put the link here)```</center> <center>The moment you do that, it will look like something like this [Source](hive.blog/@prayzz).</center> <center>Clicking on that link above will send you straight to my blog. So it’s really that simple.</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png ## <center>TAGS</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png One thing on Hive that Newbies don’t really know is very important are tags. Some of you use the wrong tags on your post because you don’t know that the tags help expose your post to more people. For an example, you write a fictional story and don’t use the “fiction, story” tag but instead you write “tutorial, life” as your tags, someone searching for fictional stories to curate will search using the tags and will miss your post not because you didn’t write a good story but because you used the wrong tags. So making use of the right tags is a very important part of hive as it helps expose your post to the right people searching for that type of content. https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png ## <center>ENGAGEMENT</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png Most people think Hive is a place where you just come drop a post, leave and expect it to get upvoted by everyone. What they fail to realize is that just like Twitter, Facebook or any other social media you can think of, Hive is a social media too that even does better than all those other social media’s because it pays you even if you’re a newbie and don’t have a lot of followers to make you an influencer. But just like those other social media that you spend most of your time on engaging with people, you have to engage on hive to, you have to make friends because the truth is, one would mostly upvote their friends first before reading and upvoting the post of a total stranger. So if you want to have a bright future here on hive, engagement is key. Read other people’s post and make meaningful comments and not just the usual annoying “nice post” comment most newbie do thinking that’s engagement. https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png ## <center>VOTE BEGGING</center> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png The last on the list today is something that probably has gotten most of you downvoted or muted by some other people on hive. Vote begging is a big no no on hive because there’s a hundred percent possibility that you begging for upvote will only get you downvoted instead. So instead of begging for upvote, put in the work in both engaging, making quality contents and watch yourself do very well. Also, it would be great to note that tagging a lot of people on your post i.e. people that you don't actually know or may not know you is not healthy. Some people may consider it as vote begging while some people, do not like receiving notifications from people who they do not know. So it is advisable to tag only people that knows you on your blog instead of multiple people, to be safe and not attract numerous downvotes on your post. https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png #### <center>QUESTIONS AND TASK TO BE GIVEN ON THIS TUTORIAL</center> https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png Before any task is given we would like to address every question the newbies would have on this tutorial. So for this, there would be a discord meeting held on the [SMILE DISCORD SERVER](https://discord.gg/wyhVUvt) on Sunday, 27 2022, 6pm GMT where all newbies can bring their questions and paste it in the #help-chat channel which we would provide answers to them via voice or can be pasted in the comments of this post as well. After the Discord Meeting on Sunday, A task would be given and then be published on the @newbies-hive account with a video of what took place in the meeting. Please do well to bring in your Hive questions in the meeting. <sub> **Note:** _The meeting is not compulsory, but a medium to better communicate with the newbies of the initiative and to answer their questions._ </sub> https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png <center> <sub> All images are mine except indicated otherwise </sub> </center> newbies @prayzz

Throughout the three months of the program, I met a lot of people and learned a lot of new things, including how to use tags, the different types of communities and the types of content you can post there, the importance of engagement and interaction, how to find the perfect niche that fits you, the importance of powering up, and so much more. --- #### <center>My Advice To The Newbies</center> --- * ###### Engage and Interact With Different Communities It's no longer news that the newbies initiative has integrated with the Hive Learner community; this is a fantastic alliance, and I'm delighted there's a specific community for newbies to publish their content; however, my advice is that you should try to diversify your engagement; there are various niches on the chain; find one that suits you well and interact with the members, engage, and make friends. * ###### Find The Perfect Niche That Suit You And Build A Solid Relationship You might be wondering on how to find the perfect niche that fits you and engage with them, that was the same question I asked myself but thanks to @josediccus who took his time to explained how to go about it in the simplest form. He only asked me one question, which was, **What do you enjoy doing?** I replied that I enjoy cooking and spend most of my time in the kitchen practicing recipes I've learned on YouTube, and that was the answer. **Food** is my specialty and something I can do without breaking a sweat, so he suggested I start blogging about the meals I prepare, the steps involved in making the recipe, and the delicacies. Now to choose the community that best matches my niche, since there are many on the chain that support food, so he suggested I go with the community that is part of OCD incubation program, and the idea community is **Foodie Hive Bee**, which support food and recipes contents, That's how I got started with the Foodie Hive Bee community, commenting on other people's posts before dropping my own (@starstings01 suggested this), and it's worked out well because the majority of my earnings came from the content I published in this community, as well as the majority of my followers. --- #### Do You Know You Can Use My Method To Discover Your Perfect Niche Too? --- So, I'm going to ask you the same question: **what do you enjoy doing?** Is it Photography? Music? Games, Drawing, Crafts Making, Fiction Writer Or do you enjoy Cooking? Look for the community that match your niche and also consider the community that is part of the OCD incubation program. Develop relationships with the community's administrators and moderators, create high-quality, original content, and make sure you credit the source of any image or text you copied from the internet or from another user. --- #### What Should I Expect From This Initiative? (Question From Newbie) --- I know a lot of newbies will be asking this question, but I'll like to respond based on my previous experience. Like I said the program is set up by some kind hearted members with the aim of helping newbies developed and understand the basics of Hive, the resources available are limited which what I mean is that; upvotes are not guaranteed. My advice for you is that you shouldn't expect large upvotes since the selected newbies outnumber the resources, but believe me you will definitely be supported, supporting isn't about large upvote but the team will provide answers to any of your questions. Furthermore, there will be meetings on the [SMILE Discord server](https://discord.gg/FAYBbrrf) (please make sure you attend all meetings), during this meetings you will have the opportunity to ask questions and make suggestions. Finally, you will be required to complete a task within a certain time frame, and if you fulfill the task's guidelines and rules, you will be rewarded with upvotes the task will also helped you understand Hive. --- ### <center>Conclusion</center> --- Hive is so broad that you will continue to learn even after the program is over. I still don't understand some things on the chain and I keep asking questions. I just hope @josediccus, @starstrings01, and my gaming mentor @ksam don't get tired of answering my questions, so please don't hesitate to ask questions if you don't understand something; my discord DM is always open. I wish you all the best of luck on your Blockchain journey over the next three months; remember to study, earn, engage, and have fun ❤️😊. --- </div> newbies @mistural

NEWBIES TUTORIAL: SETTING GOALS FOR THE NEXT 3 MONTHS ON HIVE <img src="https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/starstrings01/23wqwBiFGfEobGZ69bL1ajYpdN264HrbDitutM4r5H78CWcTm3A8hQ98GR2W7WiAZUkff.png" alt="image.png"> https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png Welcome to the first tutorial from the Newbies Initiative. In this post, I would be talking about Goal setting. This is very important to plan your direction on where you want to be on Hive; giving yourself a direction and not to get lost along the way. There is a saying that: <center> ***"If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. - Lawerence J. Peter***</center> This is why it is very important for the newbies to define their goals on Hive and how they plan to achieve it. This, most especially, has helped me grow steadily on Hive because I know what I want, I have a direction which I have to follow and remain consistent to. There are different goals which one can set for Hive depending on why you are on Hive but for the newbies Initiative, we would be focused on setting goals that are streamlined to the growth of the newbies; Hive Power, Communities and Engagement. https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png ### <center>WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW WHEN SETTING GOALS</center> https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png Before we go into the proper goal planning, we need to know that making goals needs to be intentional and not to be seen as something casual. It means it has to be something you need to keep reminding yourself and seeing everyday as an opportunity to work towards that goal. It is not something you set down only for the purpose of making them. You must first have to ask yourself *if you truly want to be where you want to be after a particular period of time*, then you need to have created a vision of what you want and where you want to be, most especially *the sacrifice that is needed to make it possible*, then ask yourself *What do I need to make this possible?* There is a popular acronym for making goals which is the [SMART GOALS](https://www.lucidchart.com/blog/setting-smart-goals) i.e. **Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time Bound.** So when you are trying to make goals for Hive, you need to be specific on what you want, and no being vague when making your goals. <center> > **Specific:** *What exactly is the goal, what do you wanto be.* **Measurable:** *What process do you need to take to achieve this goal.* **Attainable:** *It has to be something possible for you to achieve.* **Relevant:** *It has to be something you really desire to achieve.* **Time Bound:** *You have to set a period of time to achieve this goal. for this case, i.e. it is in 3 months.* </center> </div> </div> <div class="text-justify"> https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png #### <center>APPLYING THE SMART GOALS PLAN FOR SETTING HIVE GOALS</center> https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png In this section, I would talk about the goals I have made on Hive and how much it relates to having them being SMART. Here are my goals below: >_My Goals on Hive is to become a whale on Hive_ <strong>Note:</strong> <em>This Goal isn't SMART because it does not follow the term being specific, realistic, give any time bound or show any process to make this possible.</em> What if I now say that; >_My Goals on Hive is for the Next 3 months is to grow my account to be very Big._ <strong>NOTE:</strong> <em>Now this goal has a time-bound i.e. 3 months but yet it is not specific on how much I want to grow my account. It doesn't even show the process attached to making it possible, so this goal is not SMART.</em> <strong> WHAT IF I NOW SAY:</strong> > <em>My Goals on Hive for the next 3 months is to attain a Hive Power of 15k HP.</em> <strong>NOTE:</strong> <em>Now, this goal is more specific, it shows what I want but yet, it is not a SMART GOAL even though it has a time bound. The reason is because it is not measurable; it doesn't show the process on how I want to achieve this goal. It is just like a mere statement and would definitely, be something I would not achieve.</em> <strong>WHAT IF I NOW SAY:</strong> > <em><strong>My Goals on Hive for the next 3 months is to attain a Hive Power of 15k HP in which I would achieve this goal by curating contents more often, publishing quality contents regularly at least 3 times a week, engaging with other authors, and partaking in Community activities; i.e. contest. This is possible for me because I am presently in 13k HP and I earn about an average of 50 HP (Author rewards) and 25 HP (Curation rewards) a week, which in 3 months, I can earn 900 Hive and Power UP some of my Author rewards (from HBD to Hive) to make this goal possible.</strong></em> <strong>NOTE:</strong> Now this goal is specific, measurable, and attainable because it shows the process of how I want to achieve my goals of 15k HP in 3 months. This is what they call definition of a SMART goal. Other goals in which you can make is your amount of followers and this depends on how well you engage within communities. Other might makes goals to increase their post earnings, that also depends on how active they are within communities. It is important to find an active communities in which relates to the kind of contents you post because generally, your growth on Hive depends on the community you are most focus in. If you choose. https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png #### <center>QUESTIONS AND TASK TO BE GIVEN ON THIS TUTORIAL</center> https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/929735657381830726/950722113503895552/hl_footer.png Before any task is given I would like to address every question the newbies would have on this tutorial. So for this, there would be a discord meeting held on the [SMILE DISCORD SERVER]() on Sunday, 13 2022, 6pm GMT where all newbies can bring their questions and paste it in the #help-chat channel which I would provide answers to them via voice or can be pasted in the comments of this post as well. After the Discord Meeting on Sunday, A task would be given and then be published on the @newbies-hive account with a video of what took place in the meeting. Please do well to bring in your Hive questions in the meeting. **Note:** The meeting is not compulsory, but a medium to better communicate with the newbies of the initiative and to answer their questions. </div> ___ ### <center> WHO IS STARSTRINGS01 </center> ___ <div class="pull-left"> ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/starstrings01/AJpjYgmLLMHEf33QLuKszQxejJNusbBgCznXMfE873iuW6D4qQPaKMhywmYvpe4.png) </div> <sub>*Starstrings01 AKA Giftedhands is a Hive lover, a Nigeria musician (Guitarist) and also a student who studies Mechatronics Engineering in the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.*</sub> <sub>*His goal on Hive is to be more than a regular blogger but something more; someone with a purpose.

BEEN ACCEPTED TO BE PART OF THE INITIATIVE, WHAT COMES NEXT NOW? https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/starstrings01/23wqwBiFGfEobGZ69bL1ajYpdN264HrbDitutM4r5H78CWcTm3A8hQ98GR2WDiEm1j3mc.png https://images.hive.blog/0x0/https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/starstrings01/nvnkde2T-54TLbcUcnRm3sWQK3AJf6fuxkTxiKXRNCarffscTjF9JnBqLzj89NH5s1rKH2Cga4QvMPvvEcb4koTvuCHZXnviw8k7xAcqd9HsbFKjw6hj1Y72M87h86FHy9hno4Dmynf1K26XEe.png I know that many of you would be asking yourself this question right now; what comes next now that we have been accepted to be part of the initiative? *This post would address some of the questions you may have and also answer some other questions about how Smile Discord Server and Hive Learners Community would run*. Now that the initiative has began, we would begin with giving tasks and arranging tutorial post for each task. After every tutorial post made, a discord meeting would be arranged explaining all that is mentioned in the tutorial and thereafter, a task would be published from the newbies-hive account. The tutorial post would not be made by the newbies-hive account but would be shared to be published by each of the officials of Hive Learners and Newbies Initiative. Every tutorial post and task post published would be shared in the announcement channel of the [SMILE DISCORD SERVER](https://discord.gg/MbhS9UuJtU) and [Hive Learners Discord Server](https://discord.gg/nVjd5DQpU4). Since we haven't gotten any translators for the discord meetings yet, all meeting would be English and would be open to those who may want to help translate to other languages. Also, the discord meeting is not *compulsory* for every newbie but it would help answering every task related questions before giving out the task. Note: *All task entries should be published in the Hive Learners Community..* #### <center>How do we plan on supporting Newbies In the Initiative</center> Asides planning tutorials, mentoring and being there to answer all your questions, we plan to support our newbies as well. Participating in contest and activities in the Hive Learners community makes things easier for us to support your content through votes from @lazy-panda account and also tasks given by the initiative. We also created a channel in the [SMILE DISCORD SERVER](https://discord.gg/MbhS9UuJtU) discord server where newbies can share their contents to be selected for curation. Note that not all post shared in that channel would be curated and also, only authors who supports any post, in regards; reblogs, voting and comments (most especially), that was previously shared in the channel would be eligible to get their post curated. We have a lot of applications in this batch of initiative so it is advisable to put in effort in regards creating contents of good quality and also engaging with other newbies as well to get yourself noticed. I like those who give their time to relate with others, so if you want to get my attention, then you would have to be active in the comment section of other newbies because that's another way to draw me to check out your profile; in other words, you may become a favorite author of mine. Asides doing that because you want attention, relating with other newbies helps in building up your account. You both grow together, you both share opportunities and ideas together. Moreover, you can inspire each others progress: *I am speaking from experience.* These are the few advantages of engagement. ___ ### <center> WHO IS STARSTRINGS01 </center> ___ <div class="pull-left"> ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/starstrings01/AJpjYgmLLMHEf33QLuKszQxejJNusbBgCznXMfE873iuW6D4qQPaKMhywmYvpe4.png) </div> <sub>*Starstrings01 AKA Giftedhands is a Hive lover, a Nigeria musician (Guitarist) and also a student who studies Mechatronics Engineering in the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.*</sub> <sub>*His goal on Hive is to be more than a regular blogger but something more; someone with a purpose.

MY APPLICATION TO THE NEWBIES INITIATIVE <div class="text-justify"> ![kaymat.png](https://images.hive.blog/DQmSmphfe2xo9cqoux3yJsLYsVZP4rZGAUmoAEi2wajxZR7/kaymat.png) Hello Hivers, my name is Kayode with the user @kaymat, I am an African, proudly from Nigeria, a young and vibrant citizen. Hive is a platform that builds you and just so you know it is not a good forum, but it is a great forum for making great people become greater. Hive was introduced to me by a good friend of mine, who was patient and considerate in giving me the right teachings and showing me all that is expected of me to know, and I guess I'm already gaining advancement in some aspects and becoming experienced. A big "thank you" from me to him. This project is obviously a great help to newbies who are still ignorant of what Hive portrays. It is a great opportunity given to them so they can understand and get to know how Hive works, and also give them a chance to get to know each through. ### MY CURRENT REPUTATION AND HP Currently I’ve **48 REP** and **0 HP**, this was earned through my previous post last year. ![IMG_20220227_110924.jpg](https://images.hive.blog/DQmNXciwx3ufDY3VXfm4TzMcCkVL24rEuhjaNXxhuJQWWmy/IMG_20220227_110924.jpg) ![IMG_20220227_110716.jpg](https://images.hive.blog/DQmWJuccNKEvuMNSmsYonxMQtjhFP31csUqNbNZ6JVVjGnn/IMG_20220227_110716.jpg) *** ### REASON FOR MY APPLICATION When I just signed up, I really had a hard time in finding my way around since I don’t really understand how the platform works… I was struggling and since this program aims to assets newbies to know their way around the chain I decided to apply. I believe so much in this platform and I’m 100% committed to it. I’ll be sharing my daily life activities, original poem and some true life stories that my grandparents told me. I’ll as well share some foods and recipe I made and many more. I’ll be 100% original and create quality contents. I hope to learn a lot more from this newbie project and advance in my knowledge. A big Kudos to everyone for the good and positive spirit. In conclusion, I want to say a special thank you to the team and organizer @starstrings01 and @projectmamabg for all the assist and, also to @aliento and other team members for this program for newbies to learn about the blockchain. #### Thanks for stopping by. God bless you all </div> newbies @kaymatt

My name is Ameh Victoria Ilebaye. I am an adult Nigerian aged 24. I am a Christian, a lover of God, lover of food and books. I was introduced to hive by my friend @gone-hive. He taught me everything I know today about the blog. I am very grateful that I joined hive because this network has helped me a lot in such a short time in making me more excited about my writings and helping me learn new things too. I know I am not where I would love to be yet and that is why I am very happy about this new initiative because I know it will be of great benefit to me. **MY THOUGHTS ON THE NEWBIES INITIATIVE** Like I said earlier I am particularly very grateful for this initiative as i know it will help newbies like myself have a better insight on what the hive blockchain really entails. This initiative is commendable i must say because it's benefits are numerous ranging from helping newbies settle in, creating better interaction avenue for newbies and so much much. **MY HIVE REPUTATION AND HIVE POWER** I haven't made any progress as regards to this. The more reason I am so excited about this initiative. I currently have **40 rep**, **0.000hive** and **0.101 HP**. This is because I make post with almost no engagements at all. ![Screenshot_20220220-003838_Samsung Internet.jpg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/pearl-hive/23t74ZhGTFNRvG4k5X9kuwydC1DG2iPLSjnGytCu4quNzKQsQ9S4B7GjFSAfxja7EmLyn.jpg) **MY REASONS FOR JOINING THE INITIATIVE** I joined this initiative because I want to learn everything I need to know about the hive blockchain, I want to meet new people and have an interaction, I want to learn about how to make posts that will have engagements. I know i still have a lot to learn and i know with a program like this I will learn all i need to excel on this network. I also want to make new friends, meet new people, learn to interact and create good bonds while learning.I equally want to be taught on how to engage, be active and earn while learning and doing what you love. **THINGS I ENJOY ON HIVE ** I haven't been here up to a month, but I have seen and joined amazing communities that suit my interest. I have joined the writing community and the freewrite community, this is because I enjoy writing a lot and for the short time I have been there I have learnt how to be a better writer, I have also read so many wonderful stories. I also love topics like food, church, women and stem, reasons why I joined communities like MCGI, ladies on hive, STEM, OCD, liketu and so many other communities. **APPRECIATION** I cannot go without saying thank you to @starstrings01, @smi-le and @aliento for all the support you guys have given to newbies like myself and so many others. Thank you @hive-learners for everything I have been learning, for welcoming me into your community and for your endless tutelage. Special thanks to @projectmamabg first for the amazing design image you made for me and also for creating an enabling space for me to ask all the questions I had. I am so excited for this initiative and I hope other newbies like myself jump on this opportunity, because this promises to be everything and more. Thank you all for your time. newbies @pearlhive

Special thanks to @projectmamabg first for the amazing design image you made for me and also for creating an enabling space for me to ask all the questions I had. I am so excited for this initiative and I hope other newbies like myself jump on this opportunity, because this promises to be everything and more. Thank you all for your time. newbies @pearlhive

MY APPLICATION TO THE NEWBIES INITIATIVE <div class="text-justify"> ![solo-mon.png](https://images.hive.blog/DQmdaYwZ9jH3xhU5hXwKUD5xpveRgZKQCxDVP7XL5geNmfz/solo-mon.png) Hello Hivers, I go by the name Solomon, I'm an African, Nigeria precisely and I think I should go ahead and introduce my humble self to you. Hive is a network that develops you, and just so you know, it is not a good forum, but it is a wonderful forum for making great people even better. Hive was recommended to me by a close buddy, who was patient and considerate in providing me the appropriate teachings and showing me everything that is needed of me to know, and I guess I'm already making advancement in some aspects and becoming experienced. I'd like to express my heartfelt gratitude to him. Then I lost my phone and had issue with my private key, fortunately I recoverd it and I'm back in board *** #### MY APPLICATION FOR THE NEWBIE'S INITIATIVE *** This project is obviously a great help to newbies who are still ignorant of what Hive portrays. It is a great opportunity given to them so they can understand and get to know how Hive works, and also give them a chance to get to know each other. *** ### MY CURRENT REPUTATION AND HP *** Currently I’ve **49 REP**, **2.729 Hive** and **0.235 HP**, this was earned through my previous post last year. ![IMG_20220219_120624.jpg](https://images.hive.blog/DQmTF8QgduGiUtvdMc5u4WiHYDypK2jgTnUD218m3Wd7zxj/IMG_20220219_120624.jpg) ![IMG_20220219_120608.jpg](https://images.hive.blog/DQmbDDLB72h6znUFUWUdHCpaxVxfDmaEQBHo6q5HjUxHKaX/IMG_20220219_120608.jpg) *** #### Why I Applied For This Initiative *** When I joined earlier, I was lost in other people's posts because I wasn't used to the community yet. That's why I see this newbie initiative as a great program that'll clear me up on some things I still don't understand. I'm taking my time to learn more about this forum and also, try to get my reputation to a considerable level. While doing that, I also enjoy the good vibes here: the friendly members, educative posts and everything. You all are great!!! *** #### Final Words *** Finally, I'd want to thank the team and organizers @starstrings01, @aliento and other team members for this program for newcomers to learn about hive and the Blockchain in general. That reminds me that I need to thank @hive-learners for recently integrating with the newbies initiative to assist all newbies in learning and understanding more about hive. I'd be remiss if I didn't appreciate @projectmamabg. I love the design image you created for me.

My application to newbies initiative ![06CCC4B9-71A9-49B1-98E9-0C01FD2C9555.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/abdul-qudus/23wX7ntmHRfQGxxNbd365H1AfayHeeBuDXDxhBkfUs5zHk655nXd7s3E5ZfKuqRFGcdcL.png) ### <center>My journey to the newbies initiative</center> It’s been a great time here on hive, meeting with new friends through engagement and every other thing. Yeah, and I am so happy to be a member of the great platform. My journey has been like Alice in wonderland. I have been having a nice time on the platform with my account before it got lost. It was just an untimely loss. Anyways it is bound to happen, most times we just have to lose something to gain another. So this prompted me to have a new account and make myself a newbie again. I need to grow up. My mission to grow up made me wander around the platform going through each and every corner till I encountered a comment from my dear friend @Iskafan. She made her appreciation post about her successful journey on hive since last year and showcasing her accomplishments so far. I felt like this is the best for me. So I asked her about it and she gave me the details. I am using this medium to appreciate her for that. I had my eyes on the community awaiting the new application post and finally, it was out. I read the terms and conditions and also the requirements. I realized I am fit for the deal. So I opted in. Here I am taking my first step into the initiative which I am sure would go a long way in improving myself and my blogging skills, my reputation, and my ability to make my dreams of becoming a mentor on the platform. ![1ED1BD71-372F-4C81-ADC7-4B44AFF648CB.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/abdul-qudus/EoCbpjJ5ATB9x4dWa9WAAf5Dpgo5cFZ8dd4KfnvfiUDcmyuFGvfgV3TVJ3THU4RdaX1.png) ### <center>My journey on hive</center> If I am to talk about my stay on the platform then the story would have to come in two ways. It’s either I am an old member with a lost account or a new member with an active account. And I choose to be a newbie with an active account because I want to see myself grow again. My account will be 5 months old in a few days. I was not really active for the first three months but recently I became an active member and a dedicated one too. ![1ED1BD71-372F-4C81-ADC7-4B44AFF648CB.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/abdul-qudus/EoCbpjJ5ATB9x4dWa9WAAf5Dpgo5cFZ8dd4KfnvfiUDcmyuFGvfgV3TVJ3THU4RdaX1.png) ### <center>My current Hive Power (without delegations) and Reputation</center> ![8E2B0797-79E3-4AF7-A36A-AB6B69A58C1E.jpeg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/abdul-qudus/23wMUDEL13cpaCnNMDui4sDckEzUo8qyTnHjVdEBenRrx5aXCS2a9Th6ChB6aGzWgrwNG.jpeg) My hive power is 16.5 with a reputation of 51 and I dream of something great at the end of the initiative. ![1ED1BD71-372F-4C81-ADC7-4B44AFF648CB.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/abdul-qudus/EoCbpjJ5ATB9x4dWa9WAAf5Dpgo5cFZ8dd4KfnvfiUDcmyuFGvfgV3TVJ3THU4RdaX1.png) ### <center>My area of specialization</center> I am diverse when it comes to writing articles but I am quite consistent in some aspects of writing. I write more fictional articles, motivations, poems, and also love contest challenges. I also love writing about nature and food blogs but most times my environment doesn’t give me the access to explore. ![1ED1BD71-372F-4C81-ADC7-4B44AFF648CB.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/abdul-qudus/EoCbpjJ5ATB9x4dWa9WAAf5Dpgo5cFZ8dd4KfnvfiUDcmyuFGvfgV3TVJ3THU4RdaX1.png) ### <center>Why I want to be in the program</center> I have wished to become an influential member on the platform, someone who people would look up to as a guide and a mentor too and I hope it comes to pass someday. Coming across this program would be more of an opportunity to make my dreams come true and closer to reality. I can’t really say “reality” because I know the initiative is here to help those who help themselves. So I would try working hard in conjunction with the other newbies, the staff, and the team members of the initiative to grow myself during the few months allocated for the program. And I hope at the end of it all I will be able to stand out proudly and say a big thank you to the newbie's initiatives. ![1ED1BD71-372F-4C81-ADC7-4B44AFF648CB.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/abdul-qudus/EoCbpjJ5ATB9x4dWa9WAAf5Dpgo5cFZ8dd4KfnvfiUDcmyuFGvfgV3TVJ3THU4RdaX1.png) ### <center>Appreciation</center> My sincere appreciation to @projectmamabg for the wonderful and amazing badge and also to @aliento @theycallmedan @starstrings01 and @newbies-hive initiative team. Thank you all and God bless. *** ##### To join the newbies initiative [Click here](https://peakd.com/new-bie/@newbies-hive/newbies-initiative-application-now-open-2022-first-eddition) *** *** ![D7F4BEB1-1DD9-4EA5-9FF4-2730B743CF35.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/abdul-qudus/23uQp4XRCzbnmqjorJujZ4pd7fpJbVBdMPTdTk853MfUZehCPvLHVhrmM3MJ9TzTBDjVc.png) newbies @abdulqudus
