Can't believe it's only been a year.

in #introducemyself3 years ago (edited)


I have to admit that I have not signed on to steemit it in a while. I kinda got lost in other projects. Yet I was taken back when I saw this notification. It feels like it's been years since I first joined. I actually had to sit there and think about it.

Steemit was my introduction to the crypto world. I really can't believe it's only been a year. I really have had a lot of fun. I've met so many great people. Tons of great contest, and funny post.

Usually I find myself thinking about how fast time flies. Yet in this case I can't believe it's only been a year. A year ago I knew no one on Steemit, had zero followers, and felt the frustrations of having my post barely noticed. It's kinda cool.

It's nice to look back to a decision I made a year ago, and not only not have any regrets. I'm glad I did. So if your new to Steemit, keep that in mind. One of the biggest game changers for me was connecting with the different discord communities. Whaleshares being my personal favorite.

At first I refused to join any of the communities, mainly because I did not trust outside links. Id never heard of discord, and honestly did not want another password to remember. Yet it made all the difference. I now had a real community, and was able to so many great people.

The best advice I can give to a new steemian is this. Be the kind of steemit member that you wish everyone else was. It's the "do unto others, as you would like done for you" philosophy. Might not always seem fair, but one day it'll come back around. You never forget those who supported you, and that's how your community and network grows.

Thanks for sharing with me, and may God bless your efforts. :)


Yes @dreamingirwin! Steem is a massive community yet, by connecting one by one, the community starts to tend to have a hometown feel to it. Thanks for being such a good friend!

Yeah @kareencarrens making an appearance... Lol. One of my favorite steemian :) I swear I signed up years ago LOL.

I am already hooked after just one month of constant posts and blogs.
Cant wait to see what will happen in a year tho :D
The thing i love about steemit is you can make passive income if there is a bear market and then wait for the steem price to pop which is a win win situation in my book :)

Happy anniversary, dearie. I'm four months old here on steemit and have absolutely nothing to show for it, but hopefully, eight months from today, I'll be sharing a story very similar to yours. Hopefully.

Well. I saw that you wrote your introduction post so that's a start. Just make sure you check out the communities. They'll Lead You and they'll teach you things. You move faster. :)

Happy anniversary in steemit, continue success!

Thanks buddy. Your moving up levels quickly. Nice work. :)

Happy steemiversary :) Your initial reluctance to join discord sounds familiar... I keep hearing about it but I'm still figuring out steemit, I don't want to have to start another new thing from the beginning! But you've encouraged me to give it a try now. What's the worst that can happen? Wish me luck!

Different communities offer different contest and different tools that you can use by joining their community. Whaleshares has an event where you can promote your post live, and hear other people share theirs.

Pals is another sweet community. They even have an upvote bot. Check them, just ask in the room what the process is to complete the sign up.
Discord is a great app, and you can switch back and forth between rooms and talk to individuals through private message if you're in a different room. It's a great networking tool.

Thanks very much for the info, I've been taking a look at that second one and I think it could be helpful.

Congratulations!! I wish you the best in the world of steemit

Thanks. I wish you the best of luck also. :)
