Its Steempress Support Tuesday everyone, time to show your support to members of the steempress community.

SteemPress Support Tuesday is about steem & steempress users supporting steempress publishers.   This post is split into two.  The first half is my #newsteem manual curation initiative showcasing Steempress users.  The second part is to grow the steempress community by setting challenges that will help steempress users grow their blogs. 

Remember these steem users that have their own WordPress blog and are promoting their content, along with steem, to content consumers off steem on a daily basis.  More eyes on steem.  More brand awareness. 😊 

Showcasing Steempress Publishers  Ready, Set, Curate 😊

@chesatochi keeps a blog sharing his passion for money and everything related to the economy.  When he discovered the world of Bitcoin and Altcoins he got hooked. The post I am sharing this week talks about the coexistence of centralized and decentralized cryptocurrency. I hope you enjoy it.

@zeleiracordero blog is full of wonderful short stories. It was had to select only one to showcase. The story I decided on, in the end, is called Outside the nest and its a nice story with wonderful pictures.

@baillieogrady blog tends to focus on Front end essentials and there are a number of short snippet tutorials you can access. This week’s post is a short but useful tutorial on centering content in CSS. From his blog, you can also quickly access video tutorials he has on Youtube.

@devyleona shared a post on teaching you how, step by step to draw the cutest little Halloween Bears. If you enjoy a bit of art, this is a really nice one to try out.

SteemPress Community Support – Comments Support Week

This week is comment support week (I will try and mix things up every week and I am open to suggestions)

Steempress has a bidirectional comments feature.  That means comments left on a WordPress blog using steempress will be posted to the blockchain, and comments left on the post via a steem interface are posted on the WordPress site.

Comments are extremely important for bloggers.  It builds a sort of social proof that you have a following and they are engaged with your content.  An engaged community tends to mean the author has some influence.  This leads to more comments, more shares, and more traffic.

How to take part

Visit the blogs of 3 other commenters below and leave a comment on their blog. Then reply to their comment below.  Once you have commented on 3 blogs and logged it below, leave a link to your WordPress blog that you would most like to see comments left on.

To get the ball rolling, I will share my own blog post and I will nominate 1 further post in the comments below.


  1. You much comment on 3 other blogs and verify it by replying in the comments below 
  2. No links to steem interfaces.  It must be your WordPress blog.
  3. You must have steempress bidirectional comments turned on
  4. Your comments must not be spammy.

Tips – How to leave great comments

Leaving great comments can be hard.  But here are some tips to get you started

  • Ask the author some questions around the topic of their post
  • Put forward counter-arguments or statements
  • Share how the post was valuable to you, did it resonate with you personally or answers some questions you might have been looking for?
  • If the author asked questions in the post, answer them!

Go forth and Comment

That’s it for this week.   Please check back again next week.  In the meantime, if you are setting up a WordPress blog to post to steem, please do use my referral link 


Retweet it, post it to facebook
