Hi Everyone on Steem. I am keen to make the most of this new fantastic new platform, after being shadow-banned on FB and other platforms for the last few years. Especially after I started posting stuff about pesticide corporations poisoning bees and wildlife for profits in the UK and elsewhere. It's my #Publicduty as #Beekeeper to inform people about all things 'bee'.
Anyway I hope to add creative content on here as a artist and sound designer for 360 VR video. Here's some info from my blog.
Please follow and upvote and I will check out other steem creatives too. best b.
