Hi, I’m new here!

I did everything the way you were “supposed to”. Married my high school sweetheart, bought a house, had babies shortly thereafter. Went back to school for my Nurse Practitioner license. It all sounds great on paper! And, trust me, I do have a great life. 🙏🏼 But no one tells you just the level of crazy it requires to thrive as a mom, wife, friend, workplace partaker, and WOMAN! ♥️ I thought a blog would be a great place for me. I share real openly all the time on social media so it will be nice to mainstream it here with you all. If you stumble by here, make sure you say hiiii!



Mom of two teenagers, divorced and lost a house in that 2008 housing bubble but happy I'm free. The house all that, Too much stress. But they are teenagers now... Time does go by fast! Well, Welcome to Steemit and the Steem Blockchain! I'm Francesca @prettynicevideo

It’s crazy what we can go through but still come out shining, and finding ourselves through it all. You are one tough momma Francesca!


It takes a special person to be a good mom and it is amazing how it can turn you into a special person. You should chrck our the #steemitmamas tag and follow other awesome moms @kaerpediem and @brittandjosie

Welcome welcome!

Oh awesome! I’ll have to go follow them 💞 Motherhood is definitely a trip! I’ve learned so much about myself through caring for these wild boys ☺️

Thanks @zekepickelman for the shout out

Hi and welcome to Steem :) I am stay at home dad of two boys (almost 5 and almost 3) looking forward to your perspective as mom and nurse. You mention other social media - best practice here if you are cross posting any of the content you post here on other platforms, would be to provide a link to your Steem blog on the other platform to verify ownership of the content. It would also be nice to link your other social media here on Steem as well (a lot of people do it in their Steem blog header website section) or at least link in a post.

We get a lot of scammers posting stolen content from instagram and facebook accounts and pretending to be people they are not, so I hope you understand the reason for verifying ownership of content. The absolute best practice (if you don't mind posting pictures of yourself and that evidently is not a problem LOL), would be to hand write a sign with your steem username and date and hold it in a picture you post here. Cheers and good luck!

Hey Carl! Thanks for the tips! That all definitely makes sense! I’ll work on trying to link my accounts - I’ll make that my mission for the night lol E3EFC100-7751-492C-8B2F-3BA22231B9F0.jpeg

Awesome you rock! Thanks for the photo here and confirmation on Facebook, above and beyond :) I delegated you 50 SP to give you some resource credits (basically bandwidth required to post/comment/vote on Steem). I will leave the delegation in place until you have enough SP of your own to post normally. Feel free to ask if you have any questions there can be a steep learning curve at times here :) Cheers - Carl

Damn nice and that's hella cool! You rock man

Thank you again for that! So generous! Now I need to figure out what to do with it so I’m sure to use it wisely! Weekend project: research Steem terminology lol

Here's another vote! Damn that's a smile!

A hat like that will help you ride through the storms of lifer. So, good job with starting a family. Awesome smile.

Thanks! It’s a good fall hat for sure!

You got fashion. That's what sets you apart.

Thank you! Most days I’m in sweats with my kids lol but dressing up is fun too!

That's awesome. Sounds like it's almost tea time with mister bear.

Got an amazing twin ?

I'd love someone amazing but until then I'm just going to enjoy the world..

Welcome and here is a vote!

Sorry no twin! Lol But you have the right attitude - absolutely see the world when you can!

Well if you need any help let me know. Try looking up steemauto and of course d.tube is the video half...

Just wait. Seems you really got a splash. Nice seeing you jump onboard and give you a little boost..

Boom! Not everyone gets such a warm welcome. Keep posting once a day and in 7 days it will payout.

Crypto is amazing and I'm definitely still here through ups and downs.

Just wait the market will come back!

Keep posting I'll keep voting!

Welcome, @thesethree! I'm fairly new to the STEEM world myself, but the onboarding experience has been so much easier with the help of the @steemterminal team. As a fellow mom, I also recommend getting involved with the @steemitmamas tribe. Based on the fact that you used the #wellness tag, the @innerblocks tribe might be of interest to you, too. I had literally never used Discord before joining 2 months ago— but that's where these groups more or less operate, and for the mosttttt part, people are happy to answer Qs and help a newbie out. :)

Hii @thesethree ..welcome to steemit community, just share whatever you like and inspiring for the community😉 with a big smile like that.. I believe that you really have a good life and it will be amazing to see how you manage everything and still have time to do blogging like other moms on steemit😉 by the way.. where are you came from? How do you find steemit?

Welcome to the blockchain, @thesethree!

Hi sounds like the busy life! Three kids of my own all 4 and under, I just have one question for you. Did you chop all that wood by yourself? 😂 welcome to steemit it’s been a while since we had anyone new and interesting. Please don’t let this be your last post!

We are so sorry!

Last night STEEMAUTO had a bug for several hours and we downvoted INSTEAD of upvoted. The bug has been fixed.

I'm going through and removing all downvotes, replacing them with the corresponding upvotes.
Thank you for understanding. ❤️

Oops. At least it was corrected! Steem on!!!

Welcome to Steem!

Welcome to Steemit thesethree. The official FAQ can be found here and has A LOT of information https://steemit.com/faq.html - 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, Steem Monsters! 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. Welcome to the blockchain! :) Oh, and if you're interested in creating your own tokens or smart contracts, check Steem engine!

Oh my gosh, so many things! I’ll have to read some more of the FAQs! Thanks for linking it here for me

Welcome to the #Steem blockchain, Meghan.

Reference & link your content, from other platforms; that should take care of showing that you are the original creator.

It does take love & courage to be a mother & wife. @thesethree
