I love reading your blogs and I love writing my own. I’ve looked at ways to monetize it in the past, as I’m sure you’ve had thoughts about that as well, but given my slightly obscure niche I didn’t think ads would work out (I’m trailing it them right now to see how it goes.)
I’ve come across a way to share my content and get paid for it so I thought it’s only fair to share the tip. Steemit is a blogging and social network using the Steem blockchain; readers upvote posts they like and writers can get rewarded with a percentage of the overall Steem. If you’re not familiar with Steem, it’s a cryptocurrency – if you’re not familiar with cryptocurrency, where ya been?
Basically, you share your content – blog posts, photos, videos, etc. – with the Steem community and every week the website automatically pays out your rewards in Steem tokens, which are translated to USD. The rate of Steem to dollars fluctuates regularly because crypto is bonkers right now. It’s quite easy to set up an account – the only thing I would advise is to store the password they generate offline and never ever lose it because once it’s gone it’s gone.
The website is still in its Beta version right now so you can be ahead of the game and get paid for the content you’re already writing. It’s not going to make you a millionaire unfortunately but some people are already making a living out of this. Obviously, I’d love you to sign up so you can upvote my stuff so maybe this post is a little selfish but ultimately you can benefit too. So if you’re interested and want to know more feel free to leave a comment.
