Greetings Felines and Hoomans of Hivelandia!
It's the weekend — woo-hoo! We all know what that means, in the world of cats: It's CATURDAY!
Whereas that definitely is my favorite day of the week, I have to confess that the Hoomans are very good about treating pretty much every day like it were Caturday!
In any case, this is the day where we get to unashamedly share all our cat photos, in celebration of the wonder that is CATS!
Today, I am celebrating something else, as well:
A Cat-ish Success Story: LeoFinance
Sometimes I pause and consider that it is fun to have this cat blog... but it has also turned out to be quite rewarding.
A long time ago, when "community tokens" first became a thing, one of the tokens accumulated a few of was called "SteemLeo." To be perfectly shallow about it, I liked the LEO lion logo — since I'm a cat, duh! — but the idea of a cryptocurrency and investing community, also made sense, in terms of how we divide ourselves into interest groups.
Well, one thing leads to another, and today we have the success story known as LeoFinance!
What's exciting about that is that I just kept holding onto those tokens, and when it became clear that the community was really going to "go places," I even created a separate "alt account" @curatorcat.leo. As of right now, the roughly 1,975 LEO tokens we have between the two accounts are worth $1,185.00, or many multiples of what almost three years of Hive cat posts have earned!
And that's all because I just decided to hang on to those tokens!
It also goes to show that my long-time belief that our communities are going to be the future of Hive growth is turning out to hold true.
If course, I'm just a cat so money doesn't really matter all that much to me... but it's nice to know that posting pictures of cats can lead to more than just a few smileys!
Particularly since the Dad-Hooman — who does much of the typing, since I don't have opposable thumbs — needs the computer a lot for that thing he calls "work."
This way, I know I really am doing my part!
Thanks for looking, and Have a wonderful rest of your Caturday!
Love Cats? Get Involved in Hive's Cat Communties!
If you're a cat lover and often/sometimes post pictures or other content that includes your feline friends, why not become an active part of Hive's growing Cat Communities?
These are some of the more active Cat Communities — why not join them ALL? Remember, you can also "cross-post" your cat posts to them!
Last, but certainly not least, a special shoutout to the recently formed Hive Pets Community which has become quite active and has quite a bit of cat content!
There are a number of other feline communities listed on Hive, but I am not sharing them for now as they have not had any activity (by their Admins OR users) since the Steem/Hive fork. Updates as they become available!
