Meet The Awesomes!!!

Who are the Awesomes? Why are we awesome? How did we become The Awesome Homestead? Who cares?

Hi, and welcome to The Awesome Homestead!

image

We are Richard and Cheyanne. Nowe that that is out of the way,
We are a couple of absolutely normal people.... riiight, like you'll believe that!

Cheyanne is a city girl from Eugene Oregon. Richard grew up on a homestead in southern California.

In 2013 I (Richard) was discharged from the army with a medical retirement. We had no where to go so, we lived in our car staying with friends and family.
making the most out of life.

We have 4 small breed dogs, and in Oregon it was extremely hard to find anywhere to live with 4 dogs, especially being disabled and on a fixed income.

image

But these guys are our babies. So we had to findo another solution

image

This went on until we found a room for rent and stayed there for nearly a year . Eventually I got deathly sick and was hospitalized, 3 weeks after I was dicharged we were back to being homeless. That's where this blog begins.

Now we are on our own land building a homestead. And we are able to finely live a life in freedom and love.

image

Eventually we get chickens and goats and start a proper homestead. Any way, I'll if you've read this far and enjoyed it. Feel free to comment and check out my previous posts that show pictures and video of our journey From Homeless to Homestead, With The Awesome Homestead!

I hope that you will join us on this homesteading
journey!

Welcome to family :)

thx for sharing

Thanks for reading

Welcome to Steemit!!

A case of being at the right place at the right time! Homesteading is a hot category on Steemit!

I run a content curation edition called Max Curation (tag: maxcuration) where I feature homesteading posts regularly. :-)

I also publish a few tips regularly for the benefit of newcomers. Be sure to follow me to catch up fast on Steemit!

Wish you all the best!

Killer cool, sounds good!

Welcome to Steemit! It sounds like you guys have had a rough time but are staying positive. That's a great! (Staying positive, not having a hard time) haha I'm very interested in homesteading, so I look forward to seeing what you have to share in the future.

In addition to being a residential security expert, I'm also a private investigator. People watching is a passion of mine. One of the things I do is look through intro posts for new accounts that show promise. Yours does!

There are a ton of other webpages to help you with Steemit. Here are some of the best for beginners:

https://steemd.com/ (This site is used to keep track of your voting power and other stats. You do not want to run out of voting power, and you only get so much per day. I keep my voting power around 80% for example.)

https://steem.makerwannabe.com/ (This site will tell you who follows you, who unfollows you, and who mutes you. It is great for meeting new people too. I regularly check it to see who has followed me to see if I should follow them back.)

https://steemit.chat/ (This site is the official chat webpage for Steemit. There are Discord channels too, but I usually stick to the official site. Come in to network and meet new friends. You can directly message people there too, so it makes it easier to communicate with your closest friends.)

Oh yeah, there are a lot of bots on here. If you see a cookie cutter reply, especially to your intro post, it is almost certainly a bot. Check the account's reputation. If it is low, I would recommend just ignoring them. Everything is public on Steemit, so you can go look at an account's comments and replies. Are they all the same? It's a bot.

Adding photos to your account as a new Steemian may be confusing at first too. The easiest way it to click to "Submit a Story." Once in there, use the built in Steemit tool to upload an image from your computer. Below the posting window, you will see "Insert images by dragging & dropping, pasting from the clipboard, or by selecting them." Click on the blue text. Once the image is uploaded, you can copy and paste the link into your account settings.

Again, welcome, and I've followed you! If you have any questions about getting started, look me up on the chat site.

Thank you for all the information! Feel free to look into my background if you want and im glad that you are interested in us! Making a friend like you can be an amazing asset.

I do have a question, would it be the same to upload pictures to our profile while on my phone. Being off grid all we have is a phone

I hadn't tried to add a photo from a phone until you asked this question. It looks like it is very simple.

At the bottom of your new post it says "Insert images by dragging & dropping, pasting from the clipboard, or by selecting them."

Click on "selecting them" and it will open a dialogue on your phone to select the appropriate folder on your phone where your pictures are stored. Click on the picture you want and it will add it to your story.

Pro Tip: Make sure your blinking cursor is where you want it before you select your photo. It will add it where you left your cursor.

Thanks. I'm going to give it a try!

There's @richhersey kicking butt... as usual! Thanks, friend!

I use steemit.com's full webpage all the time on my phone without issues. It should definitely work!

Nice first post, followed and upvoted! Welcome to Steemit!

Thank you so much, im sure that you will be

Love the story! Me and my wife are stuck in the suburban rut outside NYC but slowly moving to our homestead dream down south probably in TN! My goal is 2019. Thanks for the inspiration.

If you move close to willow springs Missouri, i will gladly help you build your homestead!

You guys are an inspiration! It is a shame and an embarrassment for this country to desert you, and so many others like you who gave it their all. Saying thank you for your service sounds so empty, but that's all I can offer for now. Bless you and your new homestead...and also bless you for finding a way to keep those beautiful puppies. Just adorable!

Thank You so Much! Our dogs are our babies, they are our lives. Really, thank you for your kind words!

The least I can do. You guys take care and keep us posted. 😊

Good post, very well written. Thanks for sharing :) Keep on Steeming.

Im glad that you enjoyed it. What do you think of our others?

I don't have much to say except that I LOVE YOUR BREED DOGS. 😘

They are truly AWESOME!

Yah, wish I had one of them

Looks like you're getting a good start!

Keep it going! You'll get there!

Thank you so much for the tip! Im glad that you enjoyed my post

From your next door neighbor in Idaho, Welcome to Steemit!

The offgrid life is challenging but very rewarding. I haven't cut the cord myself, but I have grown a massive garden, had goats, chickens, and 2 dogs. I think you seem very normal to me.

How did your time in the military and becoming disabled change your view of life? I'm a Ron Paul fan, and I've heard him talk so many times about how there are plenty who serve, or have served, how think these wars are absolutely the wrong way to achieve peace with other countries. I would be curious to learn more about your experience and how it has changed your worldview.

Maybe I just gave you some inspiration for another Steemit post! Good luck!

Ill think about doing a post on that but it sounds more like a personal conversation lol. Im sure i would offend ALOT OF PEOPLE LOL

I dont know what any of thag means, but its interesting

Thanks for your work sir @awesomehomestead Love it. Followed...

I hope that you enjoy the rest of what we post just as much

"We are a couple of absolutely normal". I don't see the opposite, everyone has their preferences, but the family is what you think the family is. Be strong and my best wishes. ;)

Wait till you get to know us! Cheyanne is NUTS lol but that's why we love her

Lol hahaha, sounds funny, i will follow you. If you want to know about basic electronic, you should checkit out my blog. See you.

Do you have anything on replacing a phone screen without a heat source like a hair dryer?

The heat source is necessary to take off the screen from its base, because it is adhered by a special glue and the heat will dry the glue. If there is an alternative solution, I tell you, let me investigate, if I can get information that can help you, I post it.

killer, living off grid our only heat source is the wood stove, i think that may be a bad idea lol

Welcome to Steemit! Congrats on getting your homestead started. @rebele93
