A Power House Creatives Initiative

Everyone has a story – and all our stories have something in common… we all started from nothing and knew nothing. People want to hear stories. They want to hear OUR stories — they want to know who we are, where we are from, what we are doing, who and what we love, what we have learnt and where we are going. People also want us to hear their story! Being a part of the Steem network is an individual journey for every single one of us and through this initiative we will share our stories not only with all who are already here – hopefully inspiring, guiding and informing them… but doing the same for everyone else in the world too. Through our stories we will prick the curiosity of those who have not yet arrived and illuminate and widen the already open doors to our one in a million blockchain.

We invite and encourage each and every one of you to participate and share your stories too! You can find the "how to" details at the end of this post.

MY STEEM STORY - BY @joanstewart


Steem The Journey

First heard about Steemit via online marketing and blogger friends in July 2016, after much thought, joined up in August 2016. Took a look, researched a little and shelved this only to return, committing to take it serious in July 2017.

Markdown was new to me, not realizing how close (easier) it was to implement compared to HTML, a big stumbling block I created for myself. Plenty of free content to read, became an overload.
Learning blockchain, keep your finger on the pulse I told myself, it is the future, many well seasoned bloggers have made the move.

Challenges and Solutions

Found a desktop Markdown tool that worked under Windows 7 enabling prompts to use the right code throughout, used my account to picky-back photography, long winded I know, very determined to overcame my insecurities.

There are always more ways than one to overcome problems, look and learn, listen and read, many helpful people are in Steem always willing to teach or remind you how to problem solve.

My Steem blockchain knowledge

Blockchain addiction started in 2015, the whole idea made exciting reading, simple, brilliant idea in keeping systems running around the clock.

Steem re-enforced this in their set-up, the longer you work it the more you learn and understand. Not being technical, however inner workings made sense.

My Steem Favourites

Communities, I have to mention the very best way to meet people, take up challenges, learn more, it is all found in approaching community members. No matter which ones you select, be sure to read the requirements and adhere to them, you should be on your way to happiness.

My Golden Nugget Advice

Be sincere, be real, not only in what you present to members in your content or offers, make sure to carry it through in comments and replies, really get to know about others.

Never be abusive, everyone arrives with a dream!

My Steem Hood & Its Peeps

For fear of leaving anyone out I will not mention names by tagging, there are many I have met, admire and support from every walk in life.

Finding photography, nature, travel mixed with some brilliant technology ideas to share or discuss Steem is a place to call home.

Steem is an amazing journey, be sure to accept Discord invitations when they arrive in your comment section. The only way to meet members is to climb out of your comfort zone and do social media in the manner it was meant, talk, chat, debate, discuss, learn, grow, whichever order you chose. Be happy, creative relying on talent each and everyone has.

  1. Create a post titled: “My Steem Story – By

  2. The first three tags in order are to be as follows:

  3. ONLY make use of the cover image provided in this post.

  4. Keep the same formatting and placement (intro, footer
    instructions etc.)

Thanks for marking for the challenge. It has a "small" deficiency for me. I don't have a Twitter account.

Twitter account is not necessary, you can share to any other social media channel, joining into communities is where one tends to grow and learn more.

Thanks for responding @bucipuci always a pleasure seeing your content.

Thanks for the feedback

It does not matter whether you have a twitter account @bucipuci... if you want to participate and write your story... go right ahead :) Would be lovely to see your contribution - if you have not done it already (I am only getting to the reading of them all now) haha!

Wonderful your career on Steam.
I carry this phrase in my heart: " Never be abusive, everyone arrives with a dream!" (tears)
Thank you for teaching life.

Blockchain addiction started in 2015
Blockchain addiction! What a great term!

Has been a crazy ride, loads of learning, still see the future going this way.

Caught up in scams and bad experiences, hell yes! That is exactly why I never part a person from their money..., give advice when approached, once bitten twice shy!

We are all addicts here haha!!!!

!giphy addict

giphy is supported by witness untersatz!

Yeah, all have a similar type of crazy in our gene pool....

Wow! You discovered Steemit very soon, too bad you didn't use it from the beginning, however better late than never!😀✌️

Was working another blockchain system that fell apart, perhaps it will revive again.

When I first arrived, approached with the wrong mind-set coming from years of affiliate marketing/blogging background, this platform demanded change in attitude, and in my mind this a better way of getting to know people.

Good or bad it's always an experience.
I've also a wrong attitude at the beginning, imho the important thing is to recognize your mistakes and find the right way!

Ha ha, yes very quick change, one or two visits from Cheetah and you look deeper very quickly. Was a good change since now I do what I enjoy even more.

Eheheheh, Chetaah is a "bad" beast!🤣

Yes, definitely better late than never @dexpartacus :D

Happy to have connected and read your steem story Joan @joanstewart. 💕

It has been a learning experience but enjoyable with the social contacts.

A good experience in people being very much more aware about getting to know one another, being online for a long time it is difficult to start naming since there are so many wonderful people I have met.

I know what you mean about naming a few people when there are so many we want to include.
Have a great day Joan. 💞

Interesting how you came to Steem through online marketing!
It has been wonderful to connect with you here on Steem with your beautiful photography and writeups! I love seeing what life is like on the other side of the world!
Thanks for sharing your Steem Story!

So true @porters! @joanstewart's posts are ALWAYS read worthy!

Arrived with very proactive cryptocurrency outlook and friends determined this would be an answer for many.

Living on the other side, online marketing is no easy feat, turning to crypto made a lot more sense.

Now I enjoy sharing more about life here, rather than trying to sell people my ideologies, those who ask I help where I am able to assist them in not being taken by the crazy "hot deals" always on offer.

I also originally shelved it back then and came back six months later... now that I have been here for some time, I wish I had jumped on board straight away... but I suppose everything happens as it should haha! Thank you for this great contribution to our initiative @joanstewart.


You live and learn, sharing up's and down's hopefully helping each other, this initiative will hopefully show that most arrived not knowing what to expect, stayed for the people and experience.

Early days had many arrived just to try sell each other on crypto, have now learned via experiencing for themselves. There is still exceptionally good advice being offered, which is very helpful.

Spot on! I dont think I even realised what an eternal wealth of information and guidance these stories wold prove to me when I conceptualized this whole thing haha!
