RE: Every journey starts with the first step

Ah, a wonderful introductory post! I've not heard of the SDG system, perhaps it'll be a good topic for future posts :)

I know completely how you feel about blogging. Sometimes it's just not there. I've got a post I've been cooking for a month or two. In the meantime, I occupy myself with #dailychicken posts and other short posts, as well as with steem introductions.

Thanks, @riverflows! Sorry I took so dang long. I've had this post open since you tagged me, just got distracted... For four days. Finally getting around to it, and a migraine is coming on 😂🤣 go figure.

Anyways, @sinikka, welcome to steem! We're very glad you're here, and I hope you can dig yourself in and get pretty well established here! You'll find there's a good group of folks here with sustainability on their mind, and some with medical experience that may be similar to your own. Not the least of which are @riverflows (creator of @naturalmedicine), @sagescrub (creator of @homesteaderscoop), @freedomtowrite and @freedompoint (creators of @ghscollective). They're the ones driving the sustainability bus on steem. Lots of others like @porters, @walkerland, @mountainjewel, @sustainablelivin (@mariannewest's profile for her Sustainable Living Podcast), @squishysquid, @senorcoconut, @vanessamidwife, @ppmsilver, @allyinspirit, @makinstuff, @simplymike, @craigcryptoking, @buckaroo, @papa-pepper, @pennsif, @wildhomesteading, and many many more are the ones in the community making it such a great group to be with. They're all well worth a follow.

Most communities on steem currently meet on discord, so that's a handy app for steemians looking to get into the swing of things. It offers a simple, user-friendly messaging place where we can all talk and keep up off chain. There are hopeful developments coming for on-chain options, but those are probably a few forks away. Til then, our three main groups are Natural Medicine, Homesteaders Co-op, and Global Homesteading Collective. The NM and GHSC ones link to discord, the HSCO link is to the marketplace built by @sagescrub where we are able to buy and sell sustainably produced goods using steem, SBD, and USD as well as gift and barter economics. It's the first marketplace of it's kind, and we're all quite excited aboit it.

Another great tool for steem interaction is @ginabot. A splendid notification service that works through discord to let you know about steem interactions on chain. She'll let you know when you're mentioned, when people send you money, when certain folks make a post, or when posts are made with your favorite tags. Very very helpful, and I think most steemians use Gina.

One thing you'll find is that there are a lot of interfaces with the steem blockchain. There's steemit.com, busy.org, steempeak.com, partiko.app, d.tube, and many others that all boast different features and benefits. I prefer steempeak, but it's a fun learning experience to try a few for yourself, as steemit is a very basic interface that leaves much to be desired. Thats an intentional situation though, as Steemit Inc (Stinc) has bigger things to worry about.

I hope this little introduction can help you a bit. Things like this weren't being done much during the hectic time when I joined steem. With the price of steem being down (you'll find nobody cares much about that), things have calmed down as the moochers and weak hands have left. The folks you encounter here are the ones that truly desire to be here and see promise in the platform. We're here for the long haul, and we hope you find value here as well. :)

Welcome,

Nate and the whole sustainability community of steem.

@nateonsteemit Thank you so much for your comment, your advice, recommendation and making me a partial beneficiary of your comment! I am overwhelmed and surprized by all the amazing feedback I have been getting on Steemit. I definitely did not expect that.

In the beginning of the year I stared collaborating with a start-up which uses Steemit to promote social projects from all over the world. Prior to that I had never even heard of the platform, so I’m completely new to everything on here. It will take me a while to properly go through all the recommendations you posted, but I am sure they will be of great value and I am excited about the prospect of connecting with like minded people from all over the world.

I like your idea about a post on the SDG system. I think at some point I will write about that. 😊 I’ve got a super busy schedule these days and I like to sit down and really focus on what I am writing, but I think tomorrow or within the next few days I’ll write a post with the title “Change stars from within” or something along those lines.

Thank you once more for the warm welcome!
