Introducing Quirk-it!

in introduceyourself •  5 months ago  (edited)

Hello to all here on Steemit!

I'm Lauren, I'm 25 and from a county called Essex in England (I sound like I'm on some T.V show haha! Aaaaaand applause! Lol

This is what my blog is about - life's quirks, a place to 'let off steem' (couldn't resist that one, a fine example of how bad my humour can get lol) and to discuss/share a variety of ideas about various topics, and 'quirk it up' with some fun posts, I've a few ideas for those regarding travel (I've done some of that and so will share some of that with you!) and can't wait to get stuck in!

I have previously had an account on here before under the name of '@letsgetquirky' (however this account is no longer in use), I am the same person just under a new name. The reason for this is because I stupidly didn't back up my passwords and so had to start over! I won't be making that mistake again!

So a bit about me, well, firstly this is me...

This was me all enthusiastic before the hike up Lions Head Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa! More about that later!!)

I LOVE all things quirky, I consider myself to be a free spirit because I believe that we should be who we want to be, who we are and be true to ourselves. This life of ours is not a rehersal, this is it, the real deal! And so do what makes you HAPPY! Anyway... a little bit of an insight for you as to who I am on that front haha! I'm a big music fan, I don't have a particular taste, it's more of if it speaks to me or not, or hits my spot haha! I'm very much a sensual person in that sense. I love talking with people and getting to know what they are about, and so I'm excited to be here (again!) and to do just that! YAY!

On that note, I shall leave you all with this, let's see where you all stand with this topic...

Pineapple on pizza... yes or no?!



For me this is 'easy peasy lemon squeezy'...!


I find it fascinating what people like/dislike, and yes, I have heard of some VERY gross combinations like for instance, an apple and sugar sandwich... That (to me) is like sitting on a beach eating a sandwich and biting down and having that awful crunch in your teeth from the sand! Just no! That has to be the worse thing EVER! But whatever floats your boat as they say! I won't judge!

On the subject of sandwiches... I will throw a spanner in the works so to speak and admit that I am quite partial to a cheese and banana sandwich! No 'judgey mc-judgingsons' please! 😉 Do try if you haven't! The flavours just REALLY compliment each other! Ha! What's life without some flavour hey!


I'm a bit of a foodie, and am sure there's LOTS of other weird and wonderful dishes to try! Am interested to know of some of your concoctions! Let's hear your thoughts on this and quirk it up around here!


See you next time!

Do you use discord

Yes - quirk-it6765 (if I've done it right I think I have sent you a request) :)

Welcome to Steemit quirk-it. The official FAQ can be found here and has A LOT of information - Also remember, Steemit is just ONE of the sites built that uses Steem the blockchain. You should also check out DTube and DSound for starters and if you're a gamer, Splinterlands! There are many other cool apps but I can't list them all here, there's just too many! But I'd also like to mention Steempeak, it's a better blogging platform that has a lot of cool features. The latest project you should also check as a new member is a palnet! Welcome to the blockchain! :) Oh, and if you're interested in creating your own tokens or smart contracts, check Steem engine!

Nice you didn't give up on the community after you lost your previous account. I hope this account does better than its predecessor.
Quirk it!!

Her, good to have another Brit active on Steem. There are a few of us around and there are various meetups going on if you want to meet up in the real world.

Pineapple is the fruit of the devil! I've never liked it.

Anyway, have fun!

Welcome back to Steem, Lauren. Glad to have another Brit steemian about =)

Best of luck!
