I've been doing some lurking...getting a feel of things and still can't quite figure out what bitcoin is. I have an idea, but many of the posts I've read in the 'newbies' (shit, first time I'll been called a 'newbie' in 100 years) page seem to be pretty useless gibberish...have yet to come across anything that explains exactly how to go about using this.
I was talking to someone this morning about writing/designing their site and marketing materials (I was a writer/graphic artist in a previous life). We were talking politics, religion, music etc. then he sent me a link to bitcoin and said I might be interested.
Well, so far, if I'm thinking is correct...then I'm interested.
Let me tell you what I've gathered. This is more of a site where you gather 'electronic monies' or 'barder (trade services or do services for bitcoins)'. Am I on the right track? Please explain.
As well, being on disability and working part-time, I'm flat broke. How do I go about advertising my services (writing or design: logos, flyers, print or web media, press releases, start conversations on forums, head/moderate forums, etc.) for bitcoins or something else?
Would someone please explain or at least guide me in the right direction? No smart-ass obvious remarks please...I have a sense of humor, but only if it's funny and not mindless.
Thanks in advance.
