Jumping into Dlive—A proper video introduction!!

in #dlive3 years ago (edited)


Hi Everyone!!

I’ve been on Steemit for a few months now and it’s all been very educational and exciting. I think the possibilities for this platform are really huge and I’m excited to be making it a big part of my life and career. Thank you all for your support and encouragement so far!!

I recently started Vlogging on Dlive and as I’ve loved it so much, and I also think it’ll be a great platform to share my music etc, I’ve decided to jump in and do a proper video introduction!!

I grew up in Melbourne, Australia… and was very fortunate to be exposed to lots of art, creativity and expression in the culture there.

Melbourne has such an incredible cafe culture (many of the awesome cafes popping up in the US etc now are Australian-owned or Australian-inspired!)—so growing up I spent lots of time writing poetry, lyrics and journaling in cafes… sipping on delicious drinks and eating insanely delicious food! This is one of my favorite pastimes to this day, so you can expect to see a lot more posts about cafes and amazing food! I also think working in cafes is really good for productivity, so I’m sure I’ll be sharing some thoughts about that at some point!


I’m a singer/songwriter/actor. I got a lucky break when I was 15, where I was cast in the Australia Television show ‘High Flyer’s as Donna, a trapeze artist in a circus. I took 6 months off school to film, and it was such an amazing experience!! Not only was it an incredible education and beginning in the industry, but I fell in love with acting and the process of being on set.

Soon after that, I was cast as Beru in Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3. I mean this was seriously a dream come true… to travel to Tunisia and film with George Lucas, Natalie Portman, Joel Edgerton, Hayden Christensen and Anthony Daniels etc… and to become a part of the Star Wars Universe… it’s something that changed my life massively and still to this day brings me beautiful gifts and opens doors.


Here I am holding baby Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episode 3 'Revenge of the Sith'!


My hubby Mark and I at the premiere of 'The Force Awakens'!!

I also picked up the guitar and started writing songs when I was about 15 and instantly fell in love with it. Writing songs was much more personal and internal than acting on a set… it was a great way to express feelings, and I loved that I could share straight from my heart and connect with people that way.


After high school, I just had this idea that I needed to come to LA… so I did!! I moved here for real in my early 20s and started on a journey of writing songs with some incredible songwriters.

I’ve had a number of songs and compositions featured in some great TV shows and films (‘Life Unexpected,’ ‘The Three Hikers,’ ‘Grantham and Rose,’ ‘Losing In Love,’ ‘Expecting,’ and the upcoming ‘Miss Arizona’). Being able to mix my love for TV/film and music has been a dream come true, and I hope to do a lot more collaborations like this in the future!


In terms of distributing my music, I haven’t exactly known how to go about it for the last few years. The music landscape has changed so much. It used to be about getting a record deal and manager (which I did at one point and it didn’t work out as planned!) and now it’s much more about being a creative entrepreneur as so many opportunities have opened up online.

I’ve been trying to figure out the best platform to use and how to go about it, and when @benleemusic introduced me to Steemit it I was so excited, cause I felt like it’s the platform I’ve been waiting for!!

I’m so excited to share more of my music on here and even use it as a platform to launch upcoming releases. And I’m also excited to share more of who I am through Vlogs, Blogs etc. I’m super interested in health and wellbeing, delicious food, self care, productivity and spirituality etc. so I look forward to sharing lots of discoveries and tips etc about all of that and more.

I’ve so enjoyed getting to know people on here. It’s already surpassed all my expectations in terms of being able to connect with a like-minded, mutually supportive community.

And obviously the potential for everyone to earn for their content is hugely exciting!! I think it’s definitely the way of the future, and a beautiful experiment as everyone shares themselves and their wisdom and finds their supporters on here!

Well I really look forward to getting to know you all and continuing this Steemit/Dlive adventure together!!!

Great post from you
Thanks for sharing..

Will Dlive has a potential to compete with Youtube? Maybe soon?

Yes I think so!!

The potentials are gathering already. No doubt. @dlive will surpass YouTube soon. It just a matter of time. The major thing there is traffic. As Steemit grows, @dlive users also grows.

What an amzing and nice video.. happy to have you on steem.. and wow you are part of the Star Wars family... that is something you will always be.. have fun on the steem blockchain

Thanks so much @rival! Yes the star wars family is a great one indeed!

So awesome having you here. Will you tell Mark Hamil and other StarWarsies about this place? 😊

Thanks @jumowa! Yes I absolutely will 😎

Nice to see you here. And I definitely remember you in SW.

btw. How was the condition of the buildings there in Tunisia? And do you have photos? That might make another great steemit post.

Don't forget to bring in all your friends.


Thanks @grey580! The buildings were in great condition... super well taken care of as far as I remember! I do have some pics... I don't know if I'm legally allowed to release them, but I'll look into it!

I hope they don't mind. I'll look forward to seeing those :)

I think it's fair to say this is example of how to do an introduceyourself video @bonniepiesse welcome to SteemIt!

Happy belated welcome to Steemit. I tried to view your video intro on Dlive, but as in all things in Beta (just like Dtube), they don't always work correctly (could not get video to buffer). Anyway, here's wishing you the best on a great platform. Just don't let all the Bot's surround you!

Yes some people have had some trouble loading... thank you for the warm welcome!
