A Power House Creatives Initiative

Power House Creatives _night mode.png

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 @marybellrg

No start is easy for anyone. While it is true that human beings are designed to face up to the vicissitudes of life, it is no less real than the journey to happiness is not easy. It has been two years since I am sailing in these waters that sheltered me and to which I arrived motivated like many in their beginnings in Steemit, the economic motivation.

Someone friend told me that there was a social network where you write content and get paid for it. The crisis that we are living in Venezuela is not unknown to anyone, and yes, when I started I saw it that way, a way to make money writing.

I have never been an accomplished writer, beyond the youthful nonsense that came to my mind in a little notebook that I called My Diary and that was the youthful rage in those times when there was no internet or current technology.


There I began to navigate in this immense sea that was unknown and of which I only had references from my friend who, by the way, left Steemit some time ago, even though he was a writer with immense potential. I continued alone, somewhat disoriented, my posts were not the most beautiful or well presented, it was like swimming without knowing where you were going or where you would get.

Sailing alone at first is not the most pleasant thing. My first posts were made without any knowledge of markdown or presentation. The little I knew was taught to me by my friend, basic and simple commands, nothing that was a presentation that would attract attention. I came to post if you want with a minimum of knowledge.

My publications were rarely seen, with very little healing, something unmotivating I confess, more, I never thought of leaving the platform, although at that time I did not have the same love and dedication that I have now.


Steemit is something that gets into your veins and merges with you when you get to internalize what being here means, the change you make from every point of view is radical and for the better.

At that time I did not know what discord was, with my friend I entered my first server which was the Venezuelan Friends, created by @daddykirbs, a very kind person, family man, farmer, dedicated to help and support many, especially interested in the Venezuelan crisis and created that server where he made contests and supported Venezuelan people who there were doing life. It was there that I met @sacra97, a wonderful woman who became my sister in life, a true friend.

Walking this path, I found @pavelnunez, a man in love with Steemit and the lyrics, with just causes. At that time, he had his dynamic called Twelve daily votes for my readers, from which arises under consensus, the initiative to form @club12, a community of people who would be interested in promoting good reading and writing in Steemit, voting for each other and taking an interest in our publications, giving us support. The #challenge12votos was the beginning of Club12.

This wonderful community is now led by an enterprising and struggling woman called @avellana who, along with a fabulous team of which I am an active part, is dedicated to carrying out this project. Club12 is my birth and my growth as a writer in this platform has meant my evolution by the wonderful teamwork and friendship.

It made me understand that Steemit is more than lyrics, it is friendship and mutual support. It is helping whoever needs you, reaching out to the one who is just starting, the motivation changed and, from that moment on I started to believe in this with another vision, the vision of the heart.


When I arrived at Steemit, I was completely unaware of everything about the blockchain and how it worked as such. I only knew that there were curators, at that time @cervantes was the most famous Spanish-speaking curator, nor did I think at that time, that I would be in the future, writing in another language other than Spanish. Thank God I evolved over time and here I am, trying my luck in a language that is not my native language.

Not even dreaming of knowing the financial functioning of the ecosystem as such, is a very important part but I still confess myself to be very ignorant about the subject, even though I do handle the language of tokens and some necessary transactions in daily living in this sea.

I feel that now I have yet to learn, thank God, there are people with more knowledge who always reach out to you when you need it most. I consider myself a complete creator, that's what I like to do and it fills me up: writing. I do not move in the financial part if it is not necessary, I feel that I must cultivate that part more and seek to learn about it.

My blog is oriented towards content for reflection and motivational reading (I love that part), health for my profession (I am a bioanalyst), I like to participate in contests from different communities. One of the genres that I love is the poetry, I always try it even when I don't know if it is of the taste of many, I also love the stories, the freewrite, any inspiration positive I love to write it.


Among the front end, I use is beta.steemit, I think it's a great evolution because, by dividing it into communities, the content becomes more visible for the curators to whom the theme as such deserves. However, I move among all the new trends of evolution that the platform has because that is Steemit, constant learning, evolution, and growth.

My golden advice to people just starting is Perseverance and love for what you do, never stop writing, this is more than a race of time, it is a race of endurance and love. Steemit is not just anything, belonging to this platform is an honor and a great privilege.

Never be afraid to ask those who know a little more, this is a chain more than blocks and money, it is a chain of love and friendship, solidarity and simplicity, souls united by writing. Never be afraid to ask questions or take advice, read and learn, that is the main premise. This is the best platform in the world, here you develop as a person and as a writer, that is Steemit.


Steemit is a diversity when you start you think that by sailing alone you can achieve success and there is nothing more wrong. You always have to move between communities, between many, when there are respect, solidarity and group growth as a basis. There are many beautiful communities in Steemit.

I started in @club12, a beautiful initiative founded by @pavelnunez and currently led by @avellana, with a fabulous team of which I am an active part, a family more than a community, from there and in @radiosteemit we do a beautiful work of group growth, as all communities should be.

I also have contact with the communities of PAL, @radaquest, @steemterminal, @votovzla, @nucleo-fse, @lmvc, @r2cornell, @bdcomunnity and just entering this excellent community of #powerhousecreatives @steemitbloggers, where you can breathe an atmosphere of good vibes, positive energy, and healthy growth, kind and talented people who always treat you with love and give you room to feel at home.

It is always important to move in all the discord servers of the communities where you are interested in developing, you can not grow in isolation, it is the contact from discord to advance in Steemit.


Kind of a long story, isn't it? It is difficult to summarize in a few words so much feeling and trajectory that for some it will seem very short but for one it is as long as going from one end of the world to the other.

On this path, I have come across many extraordinary people, friends by all accounts, generous, selfless, kind, sincere, sisters who have contributed to my growth in this sea, many names that are difficult to remember on a list but which shine with a light of their own in the heart.

Some of them are my sisters from @club12, companions on the way and so many beautiful adventures (@avellana, @sacra97, @antoniarhuiz, @lisfabian, @mllg, @naylet, @mafalda2018, @yeceniacarolina), without them life would not be the same.


Team of @topfivefamily, a good vibes community led by an extraordinary man and connoisseur of the platform, @lanzjoseg. Friends who taught me in my beginnings and made me believe in my potential, @belkisa758 and @slwzl and those new friends who have come to give your path an extra touch of light and knowledge, they are @the01crow wise and generous soul who gave me many tips in time to grow, plus a nice friendship; @oneray, a gale of knowledge, love, wisdom, and loyalty, some so many people are part of my heart that, I feel that I sin of forgetfulness and that is unforgivable in a path like this.

Thanks to #powerhousecreatives for this wonderful opportunity to be able to tell my story and to be able to motivate many more people to enter this network and, above all, to love it, to enlarge it and to love it as their own life because Steemit is more than money, love, wisdom, loyalty, affection and, above all, friendship. Never stop dreaming, never stop writing.
