And now to Introduce Myself

So in my goal to start a toy photography project I've been wanting to do some time, I was given the advice from the good folks at Team Ashen (go follow them @teamashen) to start posting here on SteemIt. So here's to my new year resolution, of creating things, and posting for people to see.

My name is Peter, and live in Chicago. Been a Lego fan for a long time, and always wanted to create my own city, but then when The Lego Movie came along, now everyone was doing it. But thanks to technology, camera phones, photo apps, and social media, there's not a better time to create things, share with other builders, and let the imagination flow.

So a lot of things that I post will generally be photo shoots of ideas, and use that to inspire me to thing bigger and better. Along the way, there will be action figures I will work with as well, mostly along the lines of wrestling and X-Men. And as a baseball fan, will probably throw up some random baseball pics, when the weather gets a little warmer.

So stop by, share your geek creativity, and let's have some fun.

Welcome to Steem. There's no reason we should give up on toys as we get older. You need fun all through life. Enjoy Steem too.

@steevc I heard an interview with Seth Green once, saying what's the point of collecting toys, if you aren't going to play with them. No more keeping them in the box, I'm opening everything, and going to have a blast, no matter how close I am to getting my AARP card.

@brittandjosie Thank you for the great information. I will definitely check all this out.

Welcome to the Steemit community @peteopolis!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Eight suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, keychain and steemconnect,
  3. The master password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit,
    be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once, and
  7. When you open your, in the upper right corner of the page there are 3 bars. Click on those, and then on the "welcome", and you will get a lot of reading material that will help you.
  8. Do NOT open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @xcountytravelers and @brittandjosie from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Steemians available who can help you; you can click to go to the Steem Terminal in Discord here:


Have fun and happy Steeming!
