Absolutely! For starters, read the following post:

But also, here are my top 3 general tips:

  1. Make sure to use tags on your post. Other users follow tags and this is how content is generally discovered and organized on the site. So, it's important to use them — do it! 😁

    Consider writing short discussion prompts and tagging them with #discuss if you're looking to have a discussion, or use #help if you need a hand with something.

    And while you have the ability to create a brand new tag, it's often best to use established tags that people are more likely to have followed.

  2. There are 2 versions of the editor available — the basic markdown editor and rich + markdown editor — it's worth checking out each one via settings to see which you prefer. Just know that both offer the same features, but they present them in a different format.

    And while Markdown can seem a bit daunting to the uninitiated user, it's generally pretty accessible and powerful. Here's a Markdown cheat sheet you can reference while writing your posts.

  3. Have fun and make friends! If you interact with other people's posts, they're more likely to interact with yours too. It may sound simple, but this is a community and if you want to get engagement you gotta give it too! ❤️

BONUS: Set a cover image for your post. This will help with engagement, but also, if you don't set a cover image, your post won't appear at the top of the home feed (or even /latest!). In order for a post to appear at the top of a feed, it must have a cover image set.
