Sawubona! Zulu greeting of "I see, you"

in introducemyself •  4 months ago

Hello big world of Steeeem!!!

I have been on Steemit for a little while, mostly just soaking up all the information and wonderfully interesting posts that saturate my days. This is my first post!

A little about me.

Born in Southern Africa in a small, unheard of town many moons ago; I began my seemingly long journey. Life in Africa can be harsh at times, and losing both parents at a very young age I can testify to this, but life in Africa is also filled with some of the most amazing experiences and uplifting feelings. I want to share these with you! The good – the tough – the funny – the real.

My loves are firstly FOOD (cooking AND eating),

Biscuits and cake.jpg

music, writing stories, gardening, interesting conversations, upcycling furniture, spending time with my creatures,

Reading with cat.jpg

and walking, walking, walking. I walk everywhere; and this may sound strange, but you observe so much when you walk. Details are not lost when you walk, sounds are bigger, colours brighter and people – well, people that walk are a unique bunch of peaceful and warm creatures. Always ready with a smile and usually terrible with directions!

So yes, expect lots of food related posts and interesting pics and observations from me; and just day to day life in the heartbeat of Africa.

Blessings and sunshine!

The good – the tough – the funny – the real

I like that! It sounds so realistic and genuine.

Did you bake those cookies and, what, pie (?) on the first and second photos? They look so yummy. What's the name of that plant with white flowers on the fifth photo? I never saw it before. Is it something native to South Africa only?

Always ready with a smile and usually terrible with directions!

You have a nice smile! I hope you do not get lost too often. :)

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. Thank you so much for featuring my post in the contest. To answer your questions: yes I made all the food you see in the pics. The pie is gluten-free apple pie and the other pie dish has a giant raisin pudding (also gluten-free). The biscuits are just plain old coconut cookies which I love to make for my teatime. Those little flowers are Basil flowers, I love growing basil in my garden, the bees always come visit when I do.


Welcome back! That is very good of you. Go post more of your food trips. 😉

Hi, @yuppycups as you may know @macoolette featured you in this week's @pifc's Pay It Forward Curation Contest.

First of all, Welcome to Steemit!! I think I agree with food being one of my loves.
This is one of the best phrases I have read

I walk everywhere; and this may sound strange, but you observe so much when you walk. Details are not lost when you walk, sounds are bigger, colours brighter and people

It is so true. We all need to slow down and see what you are missing. Your pictures are beautiful. I look forward to your future postings. Please look into what we do at @pifc we'd love to have you join in whether it is weekly or once in a while. It's a great way to meet others, find a place in the community and get seen.

Welcome to the community @yuppycups! Here in the platform you can do a lot of things to grow your authorship. Follow your favorite authors to help you learn new things and become a great author as well.

Here are some of helpful posts about blogging from Steemit users:

While it's true that everybody can earn from content creation and curation, the best practice is to not expect anything in return. You won't get tired writing beautiful contents if you love what you do.

Do you find it hard to keep up with the game? Try adding value to your content and let others authors see value in it too. Don't be afraid to express your thoughts and make good contents.

Everyone had their own starting point, yours is just beginning.

See you around!
