Steemit is a blogging platform that aims to make it easier to reward and be rewarded for producing and curating useful content.

As you might guess, it uses cryptocurrency and blockchain tech to reward authors and content curators.

If you’ve used Medium before you’ll find the environment fairly familiar. However, instead of “clapping” like you would on Medium, on Steemit you upvote a post which will result in the post author receiving a reward.

Being a blockchain-based service, I was naturally intrigued when I first came across the platform. I played around a little but haven’t been able to develop the habit of posting regularly.

That’s about to change. Hopefully.

WordPress to Steemit

Enter SteemPress, a new WordPress plugin (which I first came across through, surprise surprise, a Steemit article) that claims to auto-post WordPress articles to a Steemit account.

Seems like just the thing CCN needs!

So, this post serves 2 purposes.

  1. Let you know about Steemit if you hadn’t already.
  2. Test the SteemPress plugin.

All going well, this post should be posted to my personal Steemit blog a moment or so after I hit the “Publish” button.

Getting SteemPress

SteemPress isn’t (yet) available in the official WordPress plugin repository, so, you’ll need to download it from GitHub.

Don’t worry, though. The installation process is simple and no different than downloading a plugin from the official repository and uploading it to your WordPress site.

In fact, there’s a great post on getting started over on Steemit that walks you through the whole process.

About to Pull the Trigger

Well, that’s about all that needs to be said about SteemPress. At least for now.

I’m going to make a few final tweaks to this post then set it loose.

Let’s see what happens.
