heyhaveyamet: the recap
I've only been on steem for 6 months.. maybe 7. Who knows. It's all a blur..
The @heyhaveyamet people have also been around.. as a thing, for about the same amount of time..
they are having a contest, 'er sumptin' to commemorate their now immutable existence
We started @heyhaveyamet in December 2018 because we knew there was a need to help seasoned and busy Steemians weed through all the posts that have been tagged "introduceyourself" because there is so much spam, fake, and mistagged posts that it takes a lot of time causing many real introductions to be missed and passed by. This month we are celebrating our six month anniversary and would like you all to join us by participating in four different contests.
Almost as soon as I joined steem and posted. I was innundated with very positive comments from the people at @welcomewagon.. which is where the heywhatchaupto people are from
now I'm not really a positive person.. more of a wolfpack of me.. So I was taken aback by the showering of good ole fashion lerve
I was, in fact.. SCARED FOR MY LIFE!
I kid, I kid..
it was a nice change from the usual social media where everyone is trying to one up each other
onwards to the contest..
write a post about how the Hey! Have Ya Met...? posts have helped you. Were you one of those we introduced? Were you one of those who found some of the new Steemians from our posts? Were you able to find help by visiting our sister project the Steem Terminal in Discord? Please tell us how we helped you.
my inital post.. which I expected to just fall into oblivion.. was titled portrait of the Steemian as a wash-up artist
and it helped to have the @heyhaveyamet people come in and shower me comments.. Made me feel like this place was alive..
and the comments in their intro post made me feel.. i dunno.. it just made it seem like I was in the right place..
There was just enough snark in this introduction to be entertaining and enough sincerity to keep me interested in reading. It was quite different and gave me a lot of information. The truth will be seen over the years as we watch him add posts. Can't wait to see what he adds to the blockchain.
Now, honestly, all I've added is a shit-ton of actifit posts and a ton of complaining.. But at least they got that I was all about the snark...
I regularly go in and check out new people due to their posts, and you should too.
ok, enough with the happyHappy... back to posting about my water intake..
and a pic of the artist as a grumpy mofo..
