I follow over 550 people in Steemit who at one point in my life I found to have something interesting to say. I have to say though that I am a bad follower as I have to rely on Ginabot to notify me of people that I want to read up.
Yet these three people are who I consider as my must visit profiles and would highly recommend that you do so as well.
I have no idea what his name is or background as he is one of those enigmatic people in the platform but I found him last November by accident as I had gone through most of the interesting posts on the people that I follow and was looking at new posts when I saw a post about overcoming personal demons.
At that time I was battling my own and here was a person that was chronicling his journey and how he turned things around. I was moved and from that day on he is an influential person that I have incorporated a lot of his thoughts and ideas into my writing especially on having an abundance mindset.
A lot of people think that he is too optimistic with the power of Steem and the blockchain technology that he is often called shilling Steem to unrealistic expectations and yet I want to believe on the things he sees, the potential that the blockchain technology will usher in the age of abundance.
Whenever I need to learn something that Steem is doing or has plans of doing I know that TM will be one of the first to write about it.
He describes himself as a Futurist that sees the technology that will impact it and he does not just talk about Steem, he also talks about 3D printing, Universal Basic Income, changes in technology, the adoption of the Blockchain Technology and most of all how humanity will evolve from these changes.
This spammy sounding name is more known as Asher to everyone else. He is the numbers guy together with @paulag, who is the numbers woman, make up the witness duo called @steemcommunity. If there is data analysis that you want to know about then these two people are your best bet!
I stumble on Asher when I was tracing the effects of The Stewards of Gondor by @fulltimegeek and although that program is on hiatus Asher took the reigns and established his League of Curation and Engagement and I have been part of it since January I think.
I have only managed to get to the top 3 spot because the reigning people in the league are pure monsters as they are able to do over 400 comments and over 100,000 characters each week. I swear most of them don't sleep or have 4 clones doing the commenting.
Besides running the leagues he always writes about things that are happening in Steem as well even before he become a witness.
He is able to explain things simply and in terms, non-techies like me can understand.
One of his effects to me was to take a more altruistic view on voting. His league influenced me to remove self-voting and to spread my votes more. He made me care more about communities and the platform.
I am very thankful to him because of that.
Oh yeah it's your boy Terry the man from Manila who runs the witness account @steemgigs which is also a Steem condenser aimed to breaking barriers and helping build the dreams of Steemians.
His words inspire, his actions are all inclusive and caring, he respects everyone and believes that everyone has value.
He is one of those whales that support massive communities and he sees not color, race, religion or social status. Everyone to him is a celebrity, he a true fan.
Un(dis)talented: Remove bum, average, smart and suddenly; "we are genius".
SteemGigs: Make "everyone" have something to offer" and suddenly; "dreams equaller reality".
Teardrops: Give tears value and suddenly; "we are back down-to-earth and "human"
All of these has the desire to be inclusive of the common man, of the "Untalented", the "Dream Builders" and those shedding their "Teardrops" of joy or sadness altogether celebrating Uloggers.
When he writes his post it is as if he is talking to you and filling your heart and soul with inspiration and motivation to believe in yourself.
Remove the doubts and shine.
One common denominator that I see in all three of these people are they are positive, they care about humans and see that Steemit can do so much good, they care for communities and engagement. Nost of all they care about you.
