I'm used to seeing Anniversary post on steemit I definitely looked up to seeing my own anniversary. Thanks to @steemitboard It's exactly 365 days I registered my account on steemit today September 11th. I remembered the controversy surrounding my registration I was skeptical about steemit, I had had bad memories with ponzi schemes and lost a lot of money so I wasn't really interested, but the sole fact that steemit was free to use was the main reason why I registered since I had nothing to lose.
I actually didn't blog for the first ten days but after ten days I started with a reply of 25 and I was ashamed to always place my comments on other users account because my rep was very low and I feared I was going to be segregated because of my reputations but I was really welcomed with open arms and my introduction post was full of welcoming comments. The first user to welcome me here was @oluwoleolaide and my goodness! Did be help my steemit growth? He definitely did.
It was difficult, but I know that you've heard this before, but believe me, it was really difficult, I can't really say I've been a flamboyant success but I can say I've enjoyed a certain level of success.
I couldn't afford to buy internet time when I started and SBD was around 0.97$ as at that time. It was horrible having to spend more on data and earn less, but I loved blogging, I wrote my contents on facebook for free for 4 years, I would collect a penny for it no matter what.
Steem Lagos meet-up in 2017
I had a niche, and it was prose writing, short stories and mainly writing really so u concentrated and after one month I earned my first 10$ on a post.
Forgive my title, but I can't gush about steemit enough, it's been a whole one year my life has been definitely transfered, it makes me emotional to state the details, so I'll just cut it short and say steemit has changed my life
GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE SUPPORT I GOT
The truth is without support I won't have really gotten so far and with a reputations of 63.4 I must say it's been a splendid journey. One of the people that influenced and supported me on steemit was @d-pend his contents was one of the reasons why I improved my content creating and today apart from blowing my trumpet I'm one of the good poets on the platforms and I've met a lot amazing others like @Dante31, a fantastic and amazing friend, the splendid @empress-eremmy and many others who were splendid writers too @raj808 for example.
This is exactly how I looked before I joined steemit.
This is definitely me after joining steemit after I'm year.
