Hi Steem family!
Communities are finally here and I am HERE for that party! Since this feature went live a few days ago - I have spent a lot of time poking around, trying different features out and creating several of my own communities.
I also created a Tutorial Video to walk people through how to both use and engage with communities - in addition to creating their own. Check it out if you are interested in diving a little deeper on these features.
This new feature is really getting me even more bullish on steem. Obviously there are kinks to work out and some big improvements that still need to be made - but I think this is going to go a long way to help people customize their steem experience and find community. I also think this is a really big plus for content creators like myself - because now I have even more ways to stay connected with my audience and can create an even more dynamic experience for them.
Of course, this is all still new - but beyond just being able to create excitement and community around my various shows/content styles - I am really excited to think more out of the box and do some fun stuff within my communities. Things like:
Okay, the reason you are all here! In an effort to both jumpstart the communities I've created and encourage people to jump in and try communities if they haven't yet - I have decided to run a 50 steem giveway!
Once the contest officially closes - I will gather all of the eligible names and randomly draw two people! They will each receive 25 steem. 🎉
This is covered in my tutorial video above, but for those who don't want to go through the whole video - I thought I'd provide a little quick tutorial here on how to do that - since posting in a community is a requirement for this contest.
Go to the community page you want to post on.
Click "New Post".
Confirm that you are posting to the community of your choice. In the photo below - I am posting to Girl Gone Crypto.
Congratulations! You have successfully posted to a community! Step 4 is optional and shows you how to get a community post on your main blog. Simply hit the "re-steem" button at the bottom of that community post and you should see it show up on your blog right away.
If you have any questions about the contest - please leave a comment below and I'd be happy to help.
Aha I missed the tutorial video. That will certainly come in handy - important to resteem that one so everyone is clued up on Communities. Good luck with your competition here.

@coruscate, Keep adding value through these kind of Initiatives. Good wishes from my side and hope that all three Communities will grow and evolve effectively. Stay blessed.

Hey @coruscate firstly hello again long time no see. I have questions lol so the payout rewards for a community is that only for a community? In one of your screenshots above I noticed something so thought I'd pop the question. I'm a bit out of the loop with steem as I haven't been on for a while and noticed the partiko app is not dropping me any notifications. Do you know of a better steem interface that's mobile friendly at the moment?
Hope you are well I'll check out your communities. Having 3 must keep you busy I'll watch how you juggle them all
Can anyone create he's /her own community? What's the requirements?
Please and thank you

Got few questions😅
If i post in certain community is the post visible to my every followers and also to the random users who haven't subscribed to that particular community? Or its only visible in the community?
And, also if i made two post, one on a community, and same post in my blog? How genuine is it and how good is it for the viewers?
Watched your video, great work. Clear voice, well narrated, and perfect screen view during explanation😊
