The hard-fork, for STEEMit addicts, probably felt like sneezing with broken ribs. The drama is settling down, platform is stabilizing, and the stalwart long term players here are still marching on toward long term goals and unbelievable fame. I have been challenged by one of those named @matkodurko who was challenged by our friend @evecab with a challenge originating with @anomadsoul. Thanks for the nomination nephew.
This may be intended for the movers and shakers at STEEMFEST but I am more into inclusive initiatives and I will be there next year.
Get to know me challenge
The idea here is to highlight posts enshrined on this great platform and remind those who may have started following us where we came from through older posts. It is a neat idea and I always figured only really bored folks or stalkers would go back through months of my blatherings. Also, past superstars have highlighted 10 of their posts and I am limiting it to 5 to keep it short and invite you to go back as far as you want to here: https://steemit.com/@zekepickleman
You may notice they are all number 1 as I love all my babies.
- Walk with Me - Geocaching with my little one https://steemit.com/walkwithme/@zekepickleman/walkwithme-special-edition-geocaching
This one is neat for me because it combines the promotion of excercise/outdoor life with the use of @lyndsaybowes tag #walkwithme, part of my journey trying to be a good dad, and a neat hobby to share. Brief synopsis: Daughter is now crazy about geocaching and the dog loves it too. Walk along with us this mile.
- My first real @Tasteem review - https://steemit.com/tasteem/@zekepickleman/tasteem-1a1a7e
I enjoyed this one again for a trifecta of reasons. I love supporting this business as it is a client and owned by a good friend of mine. This was a special night out with the missus for her birthday and it was such a unique event. I think @Tasteem is a really neat platform, I enjoy the format and support from the great community. Synopsis: Unbelievable french restaurant in my small town, incredible band from Montreal, and one-of-a-kind experience overall.
- Beer Blog of Epic Proportions - https://steemit.com/beersaturday/@zekepickleman/epic-beer-battle
This one was for the ages and combined my insatiable thirst for the golden hoppiness (using #detlev's #beersaturday tag) with a great time with my brothers and my penchant to over- exaggerate and dramatize for your entertainment. Synopsis: 3 courageous brothers risk life and limb and liver to defeat the golden tide in picturesque cottage country Canada.
- Wife Points - https://steemit.com/ulog/@zekepickleman/wife-points
This was one of my highest payout posts probably because I am imparting wisdom developed through my many years on this rock and my improbable discovery of a wife who would put up with me (and an era where vote bots were profitable.) It spawned a column on my family garden as well and hopefully helped a few folks with their work in progress marriages.....as they all are. Synopsis: Zeke gets preachy, encourages you to keep stock of your matrimonial barometer and introduces a fool-proof system to keep your partner and yourself happy.
- White Belt BJJ Curriculum in its entirety on the blockchain - https://steemit.com/steemitbjj/@zekepickleman/white-belt-bjj-curriculum-all-in-one-place
One of the things I do is train Jiu Jitsu. It was one of the first communities to embrace and support me here so I spent some time, assembling the White Belt (beginners) curriculum for the fine folks on this blockchain. @jiujitsu and friends are warriors in real life and on the blockchain. This post summed up all of those posts in one place. Synopsis: a PILE of categorized ~20-minute videos that covers the white belt curriculum at our school. Watch and train!
This took a little longer than I expected as I do have quite a catalogue stretching back to the beginning of the year. You are free to browse the rest of it at your leisure as I cover everything from music from the bands I have been in, parenting, beer, sailing, gardening, crypto, interesting friends, business, and the adventure I call my life. If you can think of something I can cover for your entertainment, leave a comment and I will point you to a post where I have already gone there, or throw it on my list of upcoming projects.
In nominating some from my friend circle here, I would love for @davedickeyyall to go back and highlight where it all because because I joined his journey in mid-flight. Also, I'd like to challenge @perceptualflaws and @doitvoluntarily as those are 2 of the most prolific bloggers I have ever had the pleasure of following.
