Hey, everyone! Anthony Fantano here, a.k.a. the Internet's busiest music nerd. I host a music-themed webshow whose roots go back to the early days of YouTube. For years, I built my brand off consistent, detailed, video-based music reviews of the latest records out there.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 12.06.57 PM.png

It's now grown into an influential music journalism platform where I'm regularly delivering everything from thinkpieces to weekly track roundups. I'm looking forward to delivering everything I have to offer to the Steemit platorm, and looking hoping to seeing music the discussion grow on this platform grow.

Here's a recent example of my work posted on the site:
https://steemit.com/music/@theneedledrop/eminem-revival-album-review

Finally, a big shoutout to @davidpakman for introducing me to the platform, and showing me the ropes.

Welcome to Steemit Anthony! I've been a big fan of your reviews for a long time and it's great to see an influential music journalist such as yourself joining us here on the blockchain.

You'll find that there's quite a strong musical community here already, headed up by @luzcypher 's weekly #openmic contest, the @msp-waves radio station and @meno 's #openmicsongwriters Songwriter's challenge, and I'm sure all the musical Steemians are thrilled to have you joining this community.

Oh and how could I forget @dsound! Which is basically SoundCloud but based on the Steemit blockchain.

@ausxen I just have trouble believing it because Anthony hasn't mentioned it at all in his recent videos or made any announcements on twitter. Also, he really didn't seem to know much about crypto in the video he posted today on the fantano channel entitled "Will Bitcoin Impact How We Buy Music?"

Hey auxsen, i am also a music lover and i wanna be a part of the music community even though i am just a newbie

·
·

  ·  12 days ago

@kingblack if you haven't already, definitely check out @luzcypher for the open mic. It's the best way to get an idea of who's on here playing/supporting music. Some of my personal favourites include @meno, @passion-ground, @verbal-d and @krystle who judge the contests, @lk666 who plays a mean guitar and recently started #hornsupsaloon (although tbh I don't fully understand what it's about as of yet), @onetruebrother an impressive songwriter, @kayclaritywho is an AMAZING singer, and @buckydurddle who does software tutorials.

I'm sure I missed a bunch in that list but if you hit up their posts and go through the comments sections I'm sure you'll have connections with most of the relevant Steemit musicians in no time :)

Also #music, #openmic, #originalmusic are the tags you wanna keep an eye on

A haiku for you:

Steemit is so much

Soon, all will be Steem

I am new, too, lolz... But I am already in love with this platform. A hearty welcome to you, sir, I am glad to see you here!

Give it a year and you'll probably leave Youtube completely for Steemit. Centralized monetization is theft. Decentralized social media platforms are the future!

my experience with centralized social media platforms have been annoying to say the least. when I found out about decentralized social media platforms like the steem blockchain I began to study the implications of what it takes to be a YouTuber and used to the history of successful content providers to formulate a plan of action that I could fuse into my style and begin that Journey here on steemit and dtube. All I can say is that if you take the time to create thumbnails and high-quality content, consistency and discipline will Propel you towards the dream we all have of creating for a living

Anthony!! The one and only thing I follow on youtube! Howdy, greetings and welcome to the absolute best platform in the world. I'm the drummer of Maserati and I can tell you it was a -deal- when Pyramid of the Sun got covered. Also: thanks for featuring End of Man on your twitter. That was pretty much my baby, recording wise, and it meant the world to see coverage from somebody whose opinions I pretty much consume regardless.

It is a source of great Steem-y hope for me that you found us here and saw the opportunity. Here's to a killer 2018. Welcome aboard.

Welcome to Steemit! It's got a steep learning curve, but it's worth it in the long run if you keep putting in the time! Just know that it will take quite a while before you start getting attention and followers. The secret to success? Keep posting high quality content regularly, and make sure to search out other people's posts, read them, and give relevant comments.

There are also a lot of really good resources out there for minnows (new users). You should check out the following:

@qurator
@thesteemengine
@originalworks
@steembasicincome

Tagging is extremely important. Always make sure to use all five possible tags, and to keep them relevant. You can always just tag something "blog" or "photography" or something else really general (so long as it's still relevant) to fill the quota if you need to- most of your tags should be established ones, though one or two less used ones are fine.

Posting more than four times a day can actually reduce your potential rewards, as well as turning off potential users. (I aim for one post per day most of the time.)

Always make sure to attach a photo to your posts! You should also have a finished profile: Write a description, add a profile picture and a banner- neither needs to be of you, necessarily, but you should have something- and set a website.

And, again, the biggest thing is just patience. Breakout successes are incredibly rare on Steemit- you've got to find your way there through perseverance and hard work. It takes time, but you'll eventually succeed if you put in the work.

Please feel free to repost this guide on the posts of other minnows you run into!

43
  ·  13 days ago

@needledrop
Any chance, now that monetisation is now an option, of reviving the meme review exclusively on steemit?

Given the decentralised system here, it is unlikely that any old guard media outlets will have any incentive to write further hit-pieces of you - lest they accidentally advertise the steemit platform and piss off their advertisers...just a thought...from a fan

Seriously, I'm awed at the level of the work you've done in your sector, the creativity and trailblazing achievements. More importantly, you'll be devolving your skills and talent towards promoting music on this platform. That sounds exciting to music lovers like me. I therefore look forward to following you (and you following me @sungbojus) so we can rock Steemit together.

Upvoting full power just on the principle of music curation.

Have you heard of Bittunes? That is a platform I’ve been following for some time, and they have big plans for 2018. In essence, it is a platform for linking unsigned musicians with their fans—linking them financially resulting in an army of agents. I see it as a platform in which curators could actually make a living with their ears. How cool would that be?

Good. Now you won't have to worry about shills and sheep writing buzz-worded articles about you, to try to paint you a certain way just because you're giving your own honest opinions about music instead of just saying everything is hot just because a corporation said to shill for it.

Hey radthony boytano, I too have just joined steemit, and I gotta say:

Where are all the good memes?

I look on the trending and hot areas for the meme tag, and it's all normie stuff like a cat with simple text on it, or a popular movie scene with some inspirational text in IMPACT font.

It's like my grandmother brought all of her dumb facebook memes, but forgot all of the ironic minion memes or any of the edgy stuff.

Hell, the shitpost tag only has like, five items on it. What's up with that?
Then I started browsing memes some more, and found a guy that had posted his normie meme and accidentally posted it to the steemit tag, and this automated bot started telling him in big paragraphs about how he is a bad user and needs to play like a good boy. Normally on any website, he'd tell the bot to fuck off, but he started fucking pleading with the bot to remove the downvote he got. and some other user responded something like, "Oh okay, I'll remove it THIS time."

This is a bigger jail than the one I walked out of.
