When I saw this title a couple of times on my feed, I thought I would check out what it's all about and here I am, joining the topic. It fits perfectly with my reminiscing on old times on Steemit these past few days, hence the challenge I made with some questions as I remembered the fun we had thanks to different kinds of challenges/contests.
It was through those challenges and consistent interaction that we got to know each other better here on Steemit and then when Discord became a thing, it felt like communication and connection between Steemians got an extention. This month it will be my 3rd Steemit anniversary and during this time I had an opportunity to meet all kinds of people but I have to say, majority of them are amazing, fun, inspiring individuals from all over the world. Different age, race, religion, background, upbringing, culture, language - but somehow we all found something in common, something that brought us together and made us bond in groups of friends and some might even say, family.
It's not easy to pin-point only a few people but I'll do my best to present to you some of my friends here on Steemit:
I cannot make this type of post without mentioning the amazing person such as @paradise-found
! He welcomed me to the community on my introduction post and since then we had an amazing friendship. He is very supportive, kind and giving person and also the founder of #GratefulVibes
which is my favorite group of people on Steemit/Discord.
Speaking of Grateful Vibes, that's where I met lovely @sunnylife
! She is one of the most positive people I came across, always there to make everyone's day better and brigther. I could always feel her uplifting vibes through her posts and I think world needs more people like that.
Another super kind and supportive person with a big heart! Always there to share sweet words and help other people/communities. @joalvarez
is also someone who's active and shares outdoors adventures which inspired me so many times to get outside the house and just do something, haha. :)
Of course, who else it would be? :D Very honest, fun and smart guy. When I wrote my first poem ever, I sent it to him first before posting it on Steemit - I guess I trust him that much, lol. He helped me out so many times with all kinds of different things. He also sent me some cool songs I still listen to.
I have to say that I really do miss the times when we all used to be active every day almost, when we used to come together all at once and just chat about random things. There's also a few more serious conversations I still remember to this day. Unfortunately, I never met anyone from Steemit in person yet, but I hope I'll have a chance to do so in the future. I also want to give a huge shoutout to #TheAlliance
for their consistent activity, support and good vibes they leave everywhere they post/comment. :D I don't think I ever really said it, but I do think you guys are awesome!
One more thing I want to mention is that I am happy to still be able to meet new people here. Some of them joined this platform recently, some have been here for a while but our paths never crossed before. I am also trying to be active as much as I can now that I finally feel my inspiration is back. It's like I've been away and finally came home! :)
