A BEE IS HERE ~ Why Am I On Hive?

in BDCommunity2 months ago

Hello Bees?
I am sorry for the name, I have no idea what I am saying or what on earth I am doing here.
When I heard about Hive, the first thing that came into my mind of course is ‘a dwelling place or domain for bees.
I was taught this in school right from my nursery level. So I am hoping members here are called BEES or perhaps it's just what I thought, if I am wrong then please I stand to be corrected.

Back to myself. I am a little introverted, don’t speak much especially in a gathering of strangers and normal people. Being a little weird and abnormal, most people feel I don’t fit into where I belong. My personality is out of this world lol.
Before I forget, I call myself Zanoz for a reason. Unfortunately, Hive registration forum rejected a few of the names I initially intended to use and they left me with that lovely name @zanoz.
You might wanna know what it means but you shouldn't even bother finding that out cause I don’t even know it myself. Like I said that is what Hive left me with, it pruned my name to that and I accepted it with my whole heart having liked the pronunciation.

Unfortunately for me, or permit me to say fortunately for me, I find myself in a place, gathering, organization, and association where 80% of the people talk about making money and how to be financially stable.
Just some months ago, a friend was telling me how she makes money without stress. I was so interested, if not for anything but for the fact that the money comes without stress. Little did I know she was talking about the online business which has to do with digital money.
Out of 100% of the things I heard in all these places and gatherings 80% were talking about digital money; cryptocurrency.
Some were complaining about the poor economical system and how digital was the future and way forward.
I might be new to Hive but I am not new to all these Crypto and digital money talks and communication. I have been seeing, hearing, and reading a few things about it.

After much deliberation and self-persuasion, I found it deem fit to be here. I couldn’t keep up anymore being the only weird one among a crowd of people who are always talking about online business and how to make money online.
Having heard a little about Hive, I think I am aware of the few rules and regulations here and I pledge to stand by them and not break any.
I don’t know what or how much is required here but I am hoping to do my best and give my best shot.
My contents will vary from different aspects and spec depending on my mood for that day.
I don’t know if I am welcome on this platform but I welcome myself and I hope to stay longer than I expected or planned.
Oh, and thanks to Hive I just created a Twitter account. I hope to have followers cause I am new to both places lol,

Say Hi to @zanoz


Shhhhh you are more than welcome here, don’t worry!

There is a lot more going on at Hive than crypto but it’s something we all learn about eventually, even if (like myself) we don’t intend to at first. I hang out at Natural Medicine sometimes where people post about healthy lifestyles, off-the-grid stuff, yoga and spirituality or gardening. I also run a community called Cross Culture. There is a movie community, an anime community, a sports community, I bought some WEEDCASH even though I never post about that just to support their token and community. So much going on here, we are small but very dynamic and active and set to grow a lot in the coming year!

I find myself connecting more and more with people from Nigieria and Indonesia thanks to Cross culture, never expected that.

Don’t quit early! It takes time but it gets easier and you learn so much about yourself and the world here. The earnings are kind of random because there is so much going on and it’s hard to get noticed but I promise they get better once you find a niche and long term friends and get involved in different projects 😀

Of a truth, Hive is huge and has diverse communities that I am already looking lost in such a big space 😂
I have checked out a few communities of my interest and I hope to stick around.
I am never quitting. I might take a break sometimes but never quite.
I hope to find and get something more than the earnings here and thank you so much for the warm welcome.

Welcome to hive. Just have fun with it, engage with people on their posts, don't wait for them to come to yours. Post with passion, personality and effort. That's about it.


I will keep that in mind. I have loved this place from day one.
Thank you for the welcome

Keep it in mind or actually do it, that's your choice. Good luck.

Yes it is and I choose to keep it in mind thanks

Welcome to HIVE @Zanoz.

You probably just noticed that your account ran out of resources and that you can't publish more posts.

Here is the deal: HIVE is a social medial platform built on the HIVE blockchain. HiveBlocks.com is a blockchain explorer. It shows every transaction on HIVE. This page shows the activity for your account:


The page shows that your account has zero HIVE POWER.

HP determines the resources for you account. It also determines the value of one's upvote. I have 4200 HP and my upvote is worth about two cents.

Gift Giver often gives new accounts short term delegations. You might visit their site and give them your account name.

There are quite a few sites that interact with HIVE. I made a partial list of such sites on irivers.com. Many of the sites supplement HIVE with alt-coins. You might find the alternative interfaces appealing.

Good luck. HIVE is tough place for newbies. I wish you well.

Yes I noticed that. Thank you very much for this. I just visited the site you recommended and I just got the delegation. Thank you for your help. I think now I can carry out more activities.
I hope Hive won't be tough for me as a newbie. Thanks again!

Welcome on Hive 😁

I am having fun already and enjoying this space.

That is all that is needed , fun will be the main factor. Again it’s difficult in the beginning but hang in there and ask for help when it’s needed. And discord is always a place to find information

I will surely hang in here. Thank you once again.
I will stop by a few times on discord to ask questions when needed


Hi Zanoz! I see @whatamidoing and @brittandjosie have given you helpful advice for your Hive journey. It takes time to build your account so don’t get discouraged.

It is always time that does the trick hahaha we will all be here to help


Thank you. I know it required a lot of time and energy and I am willing to give my best to it.

Hi again Zan of Oz :) @zanoz. I found it helpful to take part in challenges &contests. If you take photos there’s many challenges such as @featheredfriends and @shadowhunters.

I am quite active in @amazingnature community.

🎉Warm wishes for a safe and healthy New Year🍾

welcome to hive zanoz

Thank you!

Welcome to the Hive community @zanoz!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, keychain and Peaklock,
  3. The owner password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and
    be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. Do Not open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hivians available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!

Oh, this is so kind of you.
Thank you so much for the guide. I will keep all this in mind and hope not to go against any.
I am already in The Terminal Discord channel.

Well hello little bee! Have some fun 🤗🐝

Posted using Dapplr

Thank you😊
I will do just that

Gotcha 😂
Woww... I actually saw this post link in smile discord server and must say that it's really nice to come across this.

I'm now getting goosebumps on how to create an intro post that will be as good as yours 😂.

Well, l'm also a newbie and l joined yesterday so, l look forward to your guidance and support.

You can get more rc by powering up your liquid hive.
If you power everything up until you reach minnow status, ~520 hive, you will get more respect here.

Just be real, this is a tough crowd, for some of us, but they are most certainly fair.
Welcome aboard.

Welcome and Happy New Year. Have fun and know engagement is the key to develop here.
