Hello Felines and Hoomans of Hivelandia!
Caturday — because that is what Saturday really means — is about over, and I hope you have all had a good one!
Enjoying the sun in the stairwell
Seems we have recently been plagued by a serious case of not much time, which has meant not nearly as many cat pictures as I would hope my Hoomans would post of me.
But I tolerate it, because they do bring excellent cat treats, and the Mom-Hooman always invites me to sleep on the warm fuzzy blanket in her lap when she watches TV.
But still... what's the point of having your own blog, if you don't actually blog?
Enough about that, however!
Yes, I really DO help write these posts!
As of late, I have been thinking a lot about the future of the Hive Community. I have quite grown to like it here, and there seem to be some really nice people using this platform... but at the same time, it seems like activity is slowly, slowly declining... and it's always the "same old faces" I see... making me wonder where the growth of the community is going to come from.
I faithfully follow @penguinpablo's statistical updates, and there doesn't seem to be much there to feel cheerful about.
Feeling a bit pensive...
And yet, we just had a Hardfork and Hive has just become "it's own self" as a result. That has to be good, right?
And there are some bright spots like LeoFinance, which was one of the early "tribes" I invested in, and that has definitely stood me in good stead, in its own small way.
But I still can't help but wonder where "The Big Roadmap" is, and what it is? As the wise people say "nothing comes from nothing," and it's very clear to me that we have to be the ones who put Hive on the map, nobody's going to do that for us.
Wanting to keep feeling positive...
I sometimes wonder what I can do, as a tiny little fish most people have never heard of... and I guess the best I can do is keep on publishing, and sharing my content to twitter. And hope somebody sees that, and comes here!
Someone once said (about publishing content online) that you should focus on putting things out there that YOU would look it, had they been created by someone else.
I guess I make that part of my roadmap...
Well, enough waxing philosophical for now! I need to get back to my napping...
Thanks for reading, and I hope your Caturday was a good one!
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, don't forget the dPet Community created by @kona, which is the original pet related "channel," and which typically also has lots of cat photos! This is also the home of the Daily Pet Photography challenge!
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!
