Searching for Aussies on Steem: Fair Dinkum!


G'Day Aussies!!

My Post.png

I've been on Steemit for over a year now and I've been a bit neglectful of the whole 'Team Australia' thing - no idea why, just I guess I wasn't too active on Discord and a lot of Aussies dropped off when the Steem price did. Then I got involved in Natural Medicine and the rest was history. But I've been really keen of late to figure out how many of you are here and where you might be hiding. Are there people I don't know about that I should know? I feel I have more American friends that I ever thought possible, but Aussies? Yeah nah.

I was in the Australia and New Zealand Discord server AND the Aussie hang out in Palnet the other day trying to figure out if there was a definitive list of active Steemians around. It's been bothering me for a while - I either keep asking people where they are from, or feel frustrated to know someone's from Victoria, but am not sure where in Victoria. @austbitbank suggested I go through the list of people that @centrelink follows, which I will definitely do (I imagine it will take me some time!) but I thought I'd start creating the list in this post. I've put the names of people I DO know (which is shockingly small, I know - and sorry if I forgot you at all) and am hoping that people will chip in to help me with my list.

You see, I don't just want to know if you're Aussie, or what state you live in, I want to know what area you live in. If you're not happy naming the town, the vague area would be really cool. And, if you can tag another Aussie here that would be great as well! And then I can follow ya and stuff, 'kay?

And before you ask - why is the Queensland list so long? That's thanks to @choogirl - who first warmly invited me to be part of #teamaustralia. Apparently there's also a map somewhere - it'd be cool to see that, but I'm not sure whether it's relevant if people have disappeared!

Hopefully the next list will be more up to date with active Steemians. Please, please resteem!

Where do you live now? Where are you from originally?

If you can help me with this list by resteeming, that'd be really cool! I'll keep editing the post as you let me know where you're from. I'm hoping to get to know more Aussies here in the process as well as trying to connect some of that might not live too far from one another!

And I will re-post a version of this every month or so. Kinda like shouting AUSSIE into a crowd and seeing if anyone goes OY. And if i HAVE been talking to you of late but didn't put you on the list, I am just being a disorganised galah..

Lyndoch is nice, I lived their with my folks before I left home. Still living here in cock valley, I drive to pt Adelaide everyday for work... seems like a long way but I’m kinda used to it now.

03.12.2019 23:37

Yeah, that's a bit of a hike, but Cockatoo Valley is a nice spot to live so worth the effort I guess. You'll be loving it when the new connector road opens.

03.12.2019 23:38

Haha! Nice! The Lyndoch bakery is where I met my wife.
I’m super keen for that northern connector to be finished , should hopefully shave about half an our from my daily round trip.
Where did you move to?

03.12.2019 23:42

The Lyndoch bakery is where I met my wife

All good things happen over a pie and kitchener bun. πŸ˜‚

They are behind schedule with that connector but once open it'll shave a lot of time off your commute I think.

@ryivhnn is actually in WA, Perth area; I guess that is almost out of the country! Lol! Also, took me ages to hang the hang of her username, so I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who struggles with that.

I think Galen and Shaidon covered the Adelaide lot. Are you planning to see who you can drop by on your travels?

@moz333 @johnb75 are in the Adelaide hills, but they're been a bit quiet of late. @evlachsblog is further north in SA, but has been quiet even longer. @ursa is @holoz0r's other half. Not always active on Steem, but often present at meetups.

Then there's this weird hippy chick in Victoria, river something...πŸ˜‰

Hi @riverflow
Thanks for the tag. I am still around but have been very busy lately with my artwork. I was never actively involved with discord as found it more satisfying spending what time I did have in steemit on my blogs and connecting with others. That will remain the same.
I live in Scarborough, Queensland on the Redcliffe Peninsula. Unfortunately we have been surrounded in smoke haze for many days (just like much of the country,) but today we are getting some nice rain which is a wonderful novelty. I look forward to keeping in touch, as ti,e allows. (Resteemed & Upvoted.)

01.12.2019 05:27
0

Awesome. Glad you have been safe. The upcoming communities function might replace Discord a little.. I hope! Good to keep it on the chain. Thanks for checking in! I will do a roll call once a month or so to see who is around, who is new and so on. Xx
