[Blog #42] Challenge: Get To Know Me

in gettoknowme •  7 months ago

Heeeyho Readers! Joining this fun challenge to let the community know a little about me

This past fork slowed things down on the Steem for most of us, which for me, represents a good opportunity to interact in a more 'warmer' way with all those who are really addicted devoted to this amazing platform. Yes my friend, let's stick together like a backpacker's Spaghetti with Tuna fish.

So, the whole idea for this post started with @anomadsoul, who challenged us to pick 10 posts that we would like everyone to read to get to know us a bit more - check the start HERE to know more about the rules.

A gigantic shout out to my friends @guchtere and @macchiata, who nominated me at the same time, leaving zero chances for this poor soul to scape from this task. Let's #gettoknowme !

By the way, @macchiata, I'm using your template, simply because you are the master of beautifully organized posts.


Starting with the full picture from my profile

Since I started on the Steem blockchain, more precisely on the Steemit application, I barely stopped. Every single day I'm here posting and brainstorming ideas for new projects, maybe translating open source projects or maybe curating your texts for Travel Feed and Cycle Feed. It's so many tasks that sometimes my direct engagement in your amazing posts end up impaired.

Slowly Discord became a better tool for engagement, where most of the people I now consider close friends, end up meeting to know about each other.

That being said, if you like my selection of 10 posts about me, please, feel free to hop on Steemit Travellers Discord for a cup of tea and some chatting. Enjoy!

Heyho community! A little about the crazy me from Brazil

Everything has a start, and my start needs to be with my very first post on Steemit. On 22/12/2017 at 8:32 PM, @mrprofessor was born. I didn't know what to expect, I didn't know if I would like to be a 'writer'; all I knew is that I wanted to inspire and share my adventures, experiences and upcoming trips. I still don't know if I achieved that, but we are still trying.

If you are interested into travelling the way I travel - with little to no money but a lot of enthusiasm - you'll like this post I released it exact 7 days after my introduction. I'm proud of this post because it was the first one I made that reached over 1 usd mark without knowing a thing about the tags system, nor Discord, nor the many self-promotion rooms, nor I had any friends to send me some love - you were a beginner, you know that struggle.

[PART 7] Travel Story: Coast of Uruguay by Bicycle | The Murphy's Law

I know that this is not the first post of the series. However, this post is my first text to receive an upvote from Curie, that mythological project. I remember waking up one day, openning my notebook and SURPRISE. There it was that massive upvote that made my reputation jump a lot of points in one sit. If you ever received one of those you know the feeling; if you haven't, keep on trying, it'll come sooner or later. By the way the whole bicycle trip is documented, it's worth checking to see in what kind of trouble I put myself into.

[PART 8] Travel Story: Coast of Uruguay by Bicycle | The Simple Days Are The Best

This post is not simply a continuation of a story, it's the start of completely different story - it was my first @travelfeed post. If I'm now member of this amazing team, who distributes lot's of love to travellers each day, it's because one day they upvoted me way back in February. I'm bringing this here because it's a representation of my enthusiasm and persistence. Here I am a couple months later helping the travel community as a core member of @travelfeed, something that I'm really proud of.

Photo Series #35: Food Photography | Simple Homemade Bread + Recipe

Oh yeah, my friends! Good ol' mrprofessor is a completely broke backpacker who eats crackers and Spaghetti with Tuna Fish for lunch. But when I'm at home I like to spend some time in the kitchen. Unfortunately, back in the day, possibly due to the tittle this bread recipe didn't get enough atention, so here it is again. Try it out, it's simple and delicious!

Travel Story: Stuck in the middle of Patagonia with Sushi

I hear from some friends that I'm a funny guy, but seriously, I can't help if life presents me with the most bizarre and funny stories. This post is not only the first one of my Patagonian stories, but it's also one of the funniest ones I have out there. Enjoy it, but not with the green thing.

[Books] My Favourite Writer | Amyr Klink | Sailor & Adventurer

Any adventurer has a favourite adventure writer, that special one who inspired us in some way or another. If there's one guy who causes wanderlust feelings whenever I read one of his books, that one is Amyr Klink. On this post I talk a little bit about his most important titles, some of them you'll find in English.

Travel Story: Hitchhiking to Perito Moreno Glacier & Washing Clothes on a River

This is the post that I'm perhaps mostly proud of due to its adventure aspect allied with history, humor, friendship and incredible landscapes. That trip to Perito Moreno was one of the most memorable moments in my life and it was a blast trying to pass that through the lines. I feel kinda egocentric, but it's worth reading.

Dammit, just saw this, think it's the second time I've been challenged for this one (the first one was by @porters) so better get to it, huh? Thanks for the nom. That's a new word I just invented, because nomination is far too long when you have steem posts you're forced to write.

By the way, I've read all of these - how cool!!! The sushi one really made me laugh!!


nom nom nom nom ahha, problem is not being 'nomed', problem is checking all the amazing 'nomed' people right after.
