My Steem Story: Once Bitten, Twice Shy

Navy Blue Smooth Jazz Cover Youtube Thumbnail.png


*A Power House Creatives Initiative.

The latest community I joined was #PowerHouseCreatives created by @jaynie. These are wonderful communities that support their members.

I never worry about what to write about for there are numerous communities, contests and challenges to keep ideas flowing every day.

To name a few:

* @melnda010100 has two wonderful contest with #featheredfriends and #shadowphotos.

* @adalger created #amazingnature contest.

* #monomad photos @monochromes.

* @mariannewest and @carolkean in #freewrite and #freewritehouse.

For me, Steemit turned out to be a wonderful site for users wanting to display their enterprises, writing talents and photography and be rewarded. At present my worth on the blockchain is 1900 steem which at present is an estimated value of about 450 U.S. dollars.

I weathered the rise and fall of steem and now it looks like some new blood has been inserted with the partnership with TRON.

These are exciting times. Don’t miss out on this great site. Sign up Here.

Thanks @kamrunnahar. You are doing nicely here too. 😊

20.02.2020 02:39

Good morning Jo, there is so much I do not know about Steemit because I joined just to write . And write is what I have done. I so enjoy the commenting and the making of new friends in the process. I joined in April 2018.

19.02.2020 20:54

Hi Angie. You take lovely photos along with your great writings.

20.02.2020 02:34

Well those are all the important parts of it anyway right @angiemitchell? haha :) It would all be a total bore without those aspects :D

24.02.2020 12:11

Great story, @redheadpei. It's neat that you mentioned all the help that you received along the way, as well as some great resources for learning more. There are so many people willing to help, and so much great info for newcomers!

20.02.2020 06:36

Thanks Jayna! The platform can be overwhelming especially when first joining. I was so grateful to get some help understanding the whole process. Not that I really understand everything now. 😂

20.02.2020 12:28

Yes absolutely @jayna! This (not so little anymore) initiative is now host to a wealth of information and resources for all! How cool is that!!!

24.02.2020 12:12

I agree with you Jo, it was nice to catch up with friends from Tsu when we first joined Steemit.Its great to see you going strong and still enjoying Steemit.I have been heavily involved with my art over the last few months which has kept me busy but I am enjoying it. I do keep an eye on things with Steemit as time permits. I really enjoyed reading this blog my friend.

20.02.2020 09:24

Hi Trudee @trudeehunter. I’m happy you are enjoying doing your art. I do miss seeing your lovely posts but see you still take time to support others on Steemit. It was friends like you that kept me going when I first joined.

Thanks for all your support my friend. 💕

Hello. I loved your steem story from traditional social media to the move to Steem. You are correct in that there is always something to write about. And we should know by all the contests we enter and the freewrites.

Thanks for sharing your journey @redheadpei

20.02.2020 15:41

Hi @justclickindiva and you are welcome. Thanks for your lovely comment. It means a lot. ♥️

20.02.2020 19:07

I think we're all a little nervous/anxious/excited to see what Tron is going to bring/force upon us. Exciting times!

20.02.2020 20:57

I think the communities are new thing. We’ll just have to adjust to the changes but I think we’re all up to the task, 😊

21.02.2020 02:51

Yes, we are indeed haha - especially with this mornings developments....

There's no escaping you is there? lol...just teasing, I don't want to escape you but you ain't supposed to ask that question. lol. About the only thing that can be expected of me is to be ornery, mischievous and an outsider!

So glad you hushed that little voice and came to join Steemit!
What was TSU?
Love the fact that we have a place full of engaged users to share our photography, writing, vlogging and other talents here on Steem with the many initiatives, contests and challenges so we are never without ideas to post about and we get rewarded!
Thanks for sharing your Steem story!

23.02.2020 16:49

Thanks @porters. Steemit is a great place for engaging and sharing. But I need more hours in the day to get around to everyone. 😊

TSU was a social site of the same idea as Steemit except you build up rewards in cash not crypto currency. The postings were similar to what .we do here with contests and other incentives by members. By the time it suddenly went dark I had build up a bit of money which could not be recovered. Not a huge amount like some may have lost when the site went under.

23.02.2020 19:27

”Shut the f up little voice!

HAHAHAHA!!!! Glad you had that little chat with yourself LOL!!! And grateful you decided to join us in PHC hon! Thank you so much for you contribution to this initiative!
