Why I Want An Account For Having Fun & Enjoying My Steemian Experience. by @jackmiller
You know, it is kind of funny, when I first got here I was a Twitter user/reader and was lost in space.
Yep, you read that right, it was all so different and understanding what was happening on Steem back in the day when the only "web page" (front end) was Steemit.com for a person like me who had only had contact with social networks via Facebook and Twitter, well it was somewhat "hard" to adapt to.
However, with the help and assistance of some fellow Steemians it became something that was more than enjoyable.
In fact, I found my own niche, it was called "HAVING FUN".
Then as things progressed and I got into it all, to the point where I am literally thinking about Steem 24/7 and not only that, but also reading up and following the latest and greatest news in the blockchain scene and the crypto scene.
However, what happened somewhere in that process of development in the field, I lost all contact with what was a very enjoyable aspect of my Steemian experience.
Plain old "mucking around", "having fun", some joking around, sarcasm to get some messages across and doing it in a way that just can't have any of the very serious people respond to it.
So hence this account @mypics.
Originally I opened this account up to hook up third party apps that required my keys to use them.
i.e. Dtube, Steepshot, later on Steempress (and the list goes on)
However, since realizing that I miss the good old "larikin" I have decided to use this account here just for that.
Larrikin is an Australian English term meaning "a mischievous young person, an uncultivated, rowdy but good hearted person", or "a person who acts with apparent disregard for social or political conventions"
As can be seen in the definition here, that it pretty much fits me to a teeeee, even if my age is somewhat "questionable", the heart is still there!
As a person who has from mid last year when I got here, promoted the idea of just making your wall what you want it to be, it was almost hard to admit to myself that because of me starting up a witness campaign, I kinda lost touch with the laughs and fun side of things.
Can't blame anyone else for that, but seriously, think about it and I am sure you can understand why it happened.
Sure, I can be totally serious when need be, I can face reality without hiding behind the "jokes", but to be totally hones, I love having a laugh, I thoroughly enjoy joking and using sarcasm and any other type of tactic that makes me and others laugh.
Sure, we are all individuals and likewise our humour differs, but that is part of the charm. Well it is to me at least!
So my decision was and is to use this account which I originally opened up for third party apps only, as a branch of my being on Steem.
I shall use it to make my Steemian experience more enjoyable.
The hard part now is to get the news out there, to make sure my fellow Steemian brothers and sisters know who @mypics is.
So as part of the process I shall be using the tools I have available to help promote this account until I am 100% convinced that I have accomplished that task.
Now, for those that don't remember or know about the "Goodnight" aka "G'DAY" posts I so much enjoyed, here is the main caption from those posts that you shall see from time to time here:
& when I can't laugh at you, I'll laugh at me!
So, in my good ol' tradition I wish a:
Goodnight to everyone where it is night time, Good morning to everyone where it is morning and G'day to everyone else.
Time to BUGGER OFF...
I think that should be enough to give you a feel for it!
If not then, what else can I say but
If you are still not sure what "Bugger" means, then check out this very informational video:
So there you have it, a simple "intro" once again, guess it doesn't hurt to spell it out and make sure everything is 100% crystal clear.
Plus I can just chuck this link in comments or DMs when asked about @mypics, saves me having to explain it over and over and over again!
Even if I did already post about it, but I didn't spell it all out like I'm spelling it out here.
& you know what, I can do this, I have every right to make my Steemian experience unique and fit into my schedule and way of doing things.
Not like this is some "fake account", never was one, it was always very clear as to who owns it and from the header alone it was clear that this was definitely not an account for essays or novels or Shakespearean Poetry!
