Never Ending Challenge: Music & Stories

in GEMS5 months ago (edited)

Share your Music influenced Stories for the Benefit of bringing

Positivity, Fun and Excitement to HIVE


Use the time you are given by life and humour all of us with some of your best, interesting, funny, out-of-the-ordinary stories.

Not so many rules to this challenge; You can find them in the initial challenge post (click me). For those who like to take the easy road... No No, not your contributions... But for those who don't like to browse away from this post just yet, below the rules... note: some rules changed, for the better, so maybe you better go by the rules here below :)

  • original story
  • minimum 500 words
  • add at least one photograph (when not your own: source recognition is required)
  • post must by published in the Q community
  • add #-q- as one of your first four tags
  • drop the link to your post as a comment to this post

Need Inspiration?

Go through the list below and you may get inspired! It all boils down to a very simple element: Your own memory. Take a drink; Have a seat; Let your mind run through your past; Halt at any given moment when you recollect music and write about that memory... Thinking of it: When you practise my example here, you may even write about the road before you've reached the memory that gave you the material for an entry to this challenge. Especially when all the other memories you've passed contains juicy fragments... Also those we value a lot... Oops, we LOVE a lot! :)

  • a great festival experience you've had
  • a cool concert you've been to
  • an entertaining home party you've been part of
  • what made this experience memorable for you
  • what did impress you
  • what made you decide to go to this event
  • did something unexpected happen
  • what made the event fun for you
  • did you meet people who became more than just a friend for the moment
  • anything about the music played
  • anything about the decorations, location and such
  • where did the event took place

And please don't leave out anything Funny! We LOVE Funny! We also LOVE interesting, and unusual, and just your experiences, thoughts and even we LOVE your opinions.

Rewards: Somehow they belong to a challenge. And yes, we thought of that as well. This time we go along with the flow. Kinda. But we wouldn't be Q if we wouldn't divert from the flow a little. No direct HIVE is available, but we'll send some vote trains your direction when your contribution is valued by us. Check for more information the original challenge post (click me).

Us/Judge: now you may like to know; who is us. Well: We can't deny the enormous team behind us; An enormous team still in our thoughts, our minds; The team to be. For now the team consists of @edje - Yea, Thats Me! :)

Looking forward to Your Entries!

I am doing my best to post my articles in different hive communities to make sure that I can catch up attention of different people but sometimes hour or two after publishing I am re-thinking the whole concept and see that some post suppose to go to the completely other community and it would fit there much better. Quite often I think about your community ;-)

Life was more simple before we had communities :) Communities is all fine and good, but somehow we still dont have it figured out how this all will work with the money element added to it. It seems its very hard to create real communities. Many are driving by money as you can see many music posts goes into GEMS thinking they''ll get the votes from the 3 big whale accounts.

Anyways, dont want to think of all of that, and like to concentrate on the good parts of HIVE and some of the members that I value, like you :)

BTW, do you attract new regular visitors to your blog posts going through the different communities?

I dont have that experience. Best way to attract new users is still going to other users posts, read and comment and when possible get into a conversations. My follow list is still too large, but am cleaning it up bit by bit. When done so, I plan to concentrate on that channel to get more interactive again. Somehow cant wait until thats done, but need considerable time to go through the list, clean it, and categorise the users. Thats said, the main reason I do want to concentrate on my follow list, is that I do the same at other social media like FB and Insta (both closed to the outside world, only for friends and people I know) and loving it. The rest of HIVE can be part of a black hole imho :)

Thanks for thinking of the -Q- community. I do hope it will slowly develop into a real community with interesting content and even more valuable interactions. I so think we can create this when sharing our own personal stories of whatever sort, since its the personal touch that makes humans connect :)

BTW: sorry for the late reply, as you know, I was ot of the country and though I planned to be connected to HIVE, I decided when arrived at Ibiza a little less than two weeks ago, to not open my laptop at all.

do you attract new regular visitors to your blog posts going through the different communities?

yes, I have found few new folks sharing similar devotion for music and art.

My follow list is still too large, but am cleaning it up bit by bit. When done so, I plan to concentrate on that channel to get more interactive again.

it sounds like a good plan, perhaps I will also start doing so.

No problem with the late answer because in the last week or more I was also out of internet, today is my first connected day again. I failed with #a-zmusic daily challenge on the letter Z, lol. Weekly delay on the last day hehe.
