Hi, I'm Ione Skye!


My husband @benleemusic and has been raving about Steemit and I don't like to miss out on things!

I imagine I should tell you about myself. I am an artist. I grew up in Hollywood and got in to films as a teen. I wasn't great in school and acting in high quality films like 'Rivers Edge' and 'Say Anything' was superb because I could be creative and lean how to work. Also traveling and working in Europe was how I spend my teen years. Pas Mal. Non male.

My nickname as a kid was Space Cadet because I was a day dreaming kid who loved to escape in books, writing, drawing, and make believe. I still paint. I have had a few shows in Los Angeles and Tokyo. My painting website is : http://www.Ioneskyepaintings.com

I am starting a directing career my reel is here.

Ive been on Arrested Development and in about 30 films. My father is the singer Donovan but I grew up with my Wonderful Mother and brother Donovan who has produced a broadway musical called 'Head Over Heels' that opens in June. I have two girls one is a teenager and one is 8. I am lucky to come from a line of great Mothers who love mothering. I took forward to sharing things that will entertain you, post things that are fun and warm.

Welcome to Steemit Ione! Great to see you here 🌼

Welcome Ione!!!
So glad your man made us sign up for this crazy experiment! So far I lurrrrvvvvve it!
Follow me back yo!

Your hubby has started a revolution with us artists! I’ll be posting soon!! xoxo

Yaaaaayyyy welcome Ione!! Your director's reel is awesome and I can't wait to see more of your work :) Maybe you and @markvicente could collaborate in some way for a Steemit original project! (@benleemusic and I could do a soundtrack!)
I'd also love to hear some of your wisdom re being a mother... I'm not one yet but am inspired by what beautiful parents you and Ben are!

HI! I would love to give motherhood wisdom and work with @markvicente.

Me too! Good luck! Upovted!

Welcome to Steemit platform, from all of us in promo-nigeria. Steemit is a beautiful place to be and we are sure you will be happy here. Get to know more by blogging consistently. Never be discouraged, seek for assistant when necessary. Cheers!

Welcome @ioneskye! I am not surprised to see you on steemit:) Ben is very convincing! It has been a pleasure to work with your husband. I wish you all the best on this platform!

Thanks xoxo

Here is my 1st upvote to you, follow me for more upvotes and funny videos!!

I upvote every decent comment on my videos!!


Stop spamming this comment, mate.
If I see another one in the next 24 hours, I'm going on a downvote spree.

uh oh, I got threatened by a whale. Have you also noticed Sir, that I upvote every single time in order to welcome new users and to hopefully make some friends here?

I Have 100% of my own money invested and have leased steem power in order to be able to give more upvotes to my friends and possible future friends. How do you suggest I welcome new users to our wonderful platform in which I have multiple plans to invest in?

Preforming a down voting spree on me is only taking away from the rewards. I have no plans to withdraw the money I have invested, My profile literally says "never power down" I give my votes to others and the self vote earnings only go right back into leased power to give RIGHT back to others.

Don't waste your power on me, I'm not raping the reward pool. I'm not spamming useless content, its a welcome msg for new people to let them know I upvoted them and that i'm glad they are here.

Hopefully it will encourage them to invest in this platform the same way I do every month. I am against spam and I think useless repeat comments that do not even upvote is different. I'm open to suggestions.

Truce bro, but if it makes you feel better I can make a few different memes as a welcome package. I'm not trying to break your rules, thats not my style, i actually came here to have fun and not make it about the money. Truce.

If you haven't read the post; don't comment.
I haven't looked at your voting, but if you're posting this message once a minute, then each op isn't get much of your voting power.
The fact you also upvote all of your own identical comments only reduces that tiny amount further.
Here's my counterproposal; you stop spoiling people's first impression of this place with your inane, self upvoting comment bot and I'll stop flagging you for it.

Thanks for the advice to help make this a better place.

I do all my comments/upvotes etc manually and have no clue as to how to even make a bot lol If you see my blog, i'm not technical at all, i mostly crack jokes and the such.

I actually do read the posts, and I will from now on include some flavor from what I read into my welcome msg and I won't upvote them or my own comment anymore. My goal is legit to interact with people.

Aight see ya around, ill check out some of your content as well. Peace, well actually i usually say "truce" instead of peace but ummm ok I think you get the picture lol (sips cola) oh wait, also ill join you on the no spam fight, if I see some repeat "not read, but comment" work I mean hey I have no problem using power for that.

After all, im one of the good guys that wants to make this place the future. Truce.

Aside from the regular content upvotes and things i do, here is my minnow support project for content I feel is good. https://steemit.com/support/@truce/minnow-support-my-5-content-upvotes-3-11-2018

Welcome, your husband is pretty cool. Its about time the cooler half join :)

I'm a little jealous we have to share him, but she seems nice :)

lol, I mean if we really have to. :)

She lives in his house. How are we supposed to compete with that?

Trust me, she deserves to win with what she puts up with :)

Welcome to the team, if you need any help and support don't hesitate to reach out :)


There's not much to say that hasn't been said so I'll simply say, "welcome."

This is so cool!! Welcome, I just joined as well! I have always wanted to get into acting as I was a dancer and actress and love everything creative! I can't wait to see what else you have to post!

Hi @ioneskye - Nice to steem-meet you. I'm on your essential oils team, part of the Team Donna family in Australia. I look forward to learning more about your projects on here :-). Have fun, Peter @positiveninja

Hey @ioneskye, welcome to the crazy world of Steemit! I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know (and playing some tunes with) @benleemusic, and I can’t wait to see more of your art here!

Following! Have an awesome day.

Welcome to Steemit! I love your husbands videos lately on DLive. :D

welcome to Steemit! Its awesome to see more film creators coming to the platform! Ive made a few little ones, but you've got some cool actors in that reel, and some great comedy moments :D I also love that location with Ben in a banana coloured suit, that looks amazing. This is a really great place to share your work and make a bit of strange crypto cash while getting some super lovely support from an awesome community. I reckon you'll like it.
Also, let me know if you ever need an english actor :) Im a bit far away, but you never know! My dad left me a few of your dads records too.....he was a big fan, but honestly, I don't know if Ive listened to them yet....I'll have to check it out x peace out, and have fun! Basil

Welcome to steemit :)
Cant wait to see some of your paintings.. i too am a daydreamer bit apparently i was more notable for my mess aa messy marvin. 🤷‍♀️

are you kidding me?!?!?!?! i'm freaking out a little bit right now :)

I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen.

and i can quote a million more. but i'll just keep freaking out silently in my own little mind. welcome to steemit :) (and i loved your director reel)

Well... geesshh!!! we should get some special notification when this talent arrives to steemit... somebody should put this on the code...

long time fan here.. Say anything is one of those films I watched as a teen more times than I would like to admit....

You are going to do amazing here!!!

Welcome @ioneskye
I AM also new in here.

Welcome! Ben has become quite the influencer here on Steemit so I’m surprised it’s taken him this long to get you involved. :P

It’s fantastic to have you as part of the community. I look forward to seeing your work. :)

Welcome to Steemit @ioneskye.
I'm sure you will do well here. Looks like you have a lot to offer.
You may find that DTube and DSOund might suit you well too. Once you've got the basics down it might be worth investigating those too.
Good luck with your projects.
Have fun Steeming! 😊

Hi welcome to steemit lone glad to meet you here. Hope you have a great time sharing knowledge and learning from those around too

Welcome to steemit! Looking forward to more post from you!!

Welcome to the Steem blockchain, @ioneskye! Your Dad has had me as a fan since the early 70's.

A huge warm welcome, enjoy the ride on this crazy and buzzing platform!

I love that director reel!

Keep at it! Looking forward to seeing what you continue to post here! ^.^

Welcome to join Enjoy Steemit

Welcome Dear! I'm pretty sure you'll make great contribution.

Really liked your directors reel! good work. Welcome to Steemit, I just joined yesterday too. Think I will do an introduceyourself today maybe. So exciting all of this!

Welcome to Steemit @ioneskye
Greetings know.
hopefully by joining you can add insight and knowledge for us all through your useful post :)
hopefully with your presence give a new color in steemit, hopefully with expertise you have can add insight for readers who use steemit account wherever they are. compact greeting always. Best regards steemers :)

Greetings from me @chairul

Welcome Ione. I imagine a lot of people still know exactly who you are. I have one question. You have the seemingly non-sequiter phrase "Non male" in your intro. What is that about? Are you announcing your status as a non male? Seems superfluous to me.

It's nice to meet you Rezi. Welcome to Steemit!
I'm also new in here, and I can't wait to see more of your posts, just started following you, would appreciate if you would follow me back :)

Welcome to the community mam :)

So good to see you here. Welcome! Looking forward to seeing more from you. Greetings to you and your husband from India :)

@ioneskye is Head Over Heels the Go-Go's musical? I was just wondering. I've heard great things about it from some of the band members. Say Anything is a great film, by the way. To me, it helps define those glorious 80's I grew up in. Welcome to Steemit.

Welcome Ione!
Yay! Been a long time since we last hung out, so I'm stoked to see Ben cajoled you to join Steemit! Sweet!

Great , Good Luck!

Welcome to Steemit!

Hey Space Cadet and I don't know your father, the singer, but in unrelated news, am a big fan of that show Ray Donovan.

Welcome Ione. You have taken me on a trip back to my angsty teen years. Say Anything still holds up. It was one of my favourite movies. I reckon I have sern you strut your talent 20 times rewatching that. Awesome that you're here.

Welcome to steemit! I am so excited to see what you bring here. The best of luck with this fun community of amazing people 😊

Welcome to Steemit! I'm trying to get my partner on here! She may read this comment too... Hi!

Omg @ioneskye! What!!!! I am so excited that you're here! I want to say words but none are good enough! It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood! Welcome!

I confess...When I first came here in September, I kinda thought the site really sucked,and people just only wanted momey. No sincerity. Ahh, but then I came back last month and found the open mic music community (by @luzcypher ) and everything was different! It's like a virtual coffeehouse.

There are some genuinely beautiful people here I hope you stay! I watched "Say Anything" so much when I was a teenager that I had to get a new VCR tape TWICE. The struggle was real.

I always screamed at you to go to the window. Just go to the window! But then we wouldn't have heard so much of Peter Gabriel. It's ok. I always forgave you.
Much love,


I also like the good wishes people have for one another and the minds/creativity so far.

It's so positive here. Sometimes you have to wonder if people are being fake positive just to get upvotes, but that's at least better than being on facebook where people are just a lot of time genuinely negative. I love it here. ♥ And I'm freaking out because you replied to my comment. You don't even know.

Hey, your family is quite interesting, apparently all of them are artists and there is a creative air in that environment. It's great to have someone with your skills commenting here in Steemit, I hope you succeed.

Welcome to Steemit @ioneskye!

I wish you much success and hope you find Steemit to be as rewarding and informative as I have.

Hi Ione. Welcome to Steemit land. Try not to get too addicted!!

Welcome ioneskye, I hope you enjoy things and have fun posting.

Welcome my love

Loved your director reel! Seems like Ben is wearing a suit that could be described as Mellow Yellow:) Enjoy Steemit Ione!
