Introduce Yourself - Zed CM / Motogirlthailand :) Hi!

Introverted adventurer on a motorcycle 😏

Hi all! I have been living in Thailand for 12 years, and hope to show the world some of the beauty and hidden gems in Thailand (and S.E.Asia) via my (mainly solo) travels on my Kawasaki Dtracker 250cc. Past, present and current travels.

I'm a private individual, which is ironic given that I have publicly posted myself on the internet in recent years.

I somewhat relate it to tasting something absolutely mind blowing and wanting others to enjoy it. So, my putting myself "out there" is less about me, and more about wanting to say "look at this beautiful thing! Please drink it in!".

A few years back I had people telling me that my adventures and finds were worth sharing, so well, that gave birth to the concept of motogirlthailand.com (aka Motogirl 'IN' Thailand).

In recent years I have been lucky to take my bike into Laos and I have taken it to many remote, rural and interesting places. Including some of the most stunning mountain views and the most amazing Thai landmarks and temples.

I have also connected with some amazing people and participated in some fantastic motorbike related events. Such as the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride, which raises awareness and money for prostate cancer and mens mental health. (Sadly my ex in the UK passed away at only 38 years old from prostate cancer, so it is so very important to spread awareness!).

As well as some cool biker events too.

Riding a motorbike and visiting these fantastic places has been my life blood! It has saved me from difficult times and low times.

Ok so well, a little about me.... (why is it so easy to write about other things, but so hard to write about oneself..? Arghh! …)

Let's see..(trying to be concise). Well, just over 12 years ago I arrived in Thailand with a small suitcase after selling up everything I had in the UK. I had never visited S.E.Asia before, but had lived in other countries. Wasn't sure what to expect, but wasn't too worried as I've overcome difficulties and challenges in life before, so I was ok with a bit of flux. In fact, I often do better with a little chaos than I do with too much calm!

Fast forward to around 10 year ago when I decided a bicycle wasn't taking me far enough in Chiang Mai (where I based myself) so I learned to ride a scooter. That is when the fun really started. I ended up taking that small scooter all over, exploring nooks and crannies and enjoying life. Well, until I had a nasty accident (two close together actually). Typical kind of scooter-abroad story really (well, kind of, but anyway). I almost had a foot amputated and I smashed up my face a little (quite a bit..)

The stories are all on my website, if you decide to read about them

This accident had me realizing I had outgrown my bike and needed to upgrade not only my bike, but my skills.

Finally, almost four years ago I bought my Kawasaki Dtracker 250cc and it has given me some of the best adventures of my life.

20248359_367526020329469_1192906449348862024_o.jpg

..and I want to share them with you :)

So, hopefully my story seems interesting and hopefully you are intrigued enough to follow along.
I am still learning about steemit, so baby steps for me.

GTR-IMG_3227.jpg

I have some social media channels which have been up and running for a couple of years now, but I do plan on posting up some unique material on here as well as sharing across platforms. Hopefully that's not bad etiquette. o.O Sorry, I am still trying to get the hang of Steemit, so hopefully I am not doing something wrong by sharing!

My media channels are:

Web: https://web.facebook.com/motogirlthailand/
Facebook: https://web.facebook.com/motogirlthailand

Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/motogirlthailand/
YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpL4SSw5BNDTXI6bLl1Zv9Q?view_as=subscriber

Hope that was a good enough intro post to give you an idea of what I am about and what I hope to achieve.

Thanks all..and good luck to you too! :D

What a great introduction, @zedcm.

Thanks for sharing your adventures and also these magnific photos and videos. How long did it take for you to learn Thai? Did you had any lessons?

Congratulations on being featured by @zorank on the Pay It Forward Contest.

·

Thanks! :)
I'm not exactly sure how long it took me to learn Thai. It just sort of evolved. I had a few formal lessons in the beginning and then occasional study plus random classes here and there.
Mostly self-taught and listening..and necessary interactions, such as being in areas where English isn't spoken. That always forces you to learn and pushed my introverted nature to speak, rather than just observe.
I haven't progressed much in many years as i am a hermit by nature and tend not to speak much to any one, even in English.
I suppose I was speaking reasonable Thai by about 2 years of living in Thailand...after that it's just been slowly added to.
Thanks for the comment:D

Wow. That's fast. I guess necessity speeds up learning. Can you read and write, too?

·
·

I can read slowly and badly, but cannot write. The way Thai is written is not straight forward. Cluster words, tones, etc. So I gave up on writing. I should probably take some formal lessons at some point to get that sorted out.

Welcome to Steemit @zedcm!

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

Here are some links you might find useful.
Your stats on SteemNow
Your stats on SteemWorld
Your stats on SteemD
How does Steemit actually work?

Oh yea, I have upvoted you and followed you. Many blessings!

·

Thanks "intro.bot" ^^ :D

·

Done! Thank you ^.^

Hey @zedcm, thanks for giving Steemit a try and for pushing through the initial hurdles, LOL! I hope you'll find it's worth it after your first week or so.

You're gonna get lots of answers from bots to your introduction post, just to prepare you, but some of them are actually quite helpful.

Check out the Partiko app - it's a prettier way to interact with Steem on your phone and it will also notify you when other people mention you in their posts.

There's a whole supportive community on Discord that can help you grow (I'm not part of it - I can't handle too many social media channels, LOL) but maybe this post will give you a starting point: https://steemit.com/minnowsupportproject/@minnowsupport/minnow-support-project-problem-statement-vision-statement-mission-statement-and-plan-to-help-you-grow-from-minnow-to-whale-with

Good luck!

Thanks so much! I hope the comments I made in the Facebook group were considered constructive haha! Finger's crossed I can make a go of this. I do want to try make something out of my passion, rather than it just being more of a glorified hobby. Hopefully I can gain more supporters and possibly a bit of income on the side for my efforts too. Heck we all have to pay bills, right!

Appreciate the feedback and links and very nice of you to want to introduce the platform to others like me.

My best! :)

Welcome on steemit. You got a resteem from me.

·

Thank you so much! :D

Wow, great to see some biker ladies on Steemit, especially from Thailand 🇹🇭
Wish you much fun and success!
Best greetings from Pattaya 🇹🇭

Thanks Luegenbaron! :D

Hi @zedcm welcome to Steem! Looks like you have all sorts of adventures to share :) Would you mind confirming ownership of this content by leaving a backlink to your Steem blog on one of your other confirmed web presences? E.g. include link to steem blog in your website social media links, or on youtube about page, etc. Please don't be offended that I ask this - we get people all the time claiming to be someone who they are not, and posting content they don't own here on Steem just to earn the $ reward. Cheers - Carl

That makes some sense.
Will work out the best way to do this, but in the meantime I have updated my website (about me) page with the Steemit link. This should verify that I am who I say I am haha.

Hi and welcome here! When I started on steemit, my biggest problem was to find interesting people to interact with. So, to help newcomers getting started I created a directory with other interesting and or talented steemians to follow or interact with. Feel free to check it out at https://www.steemiandir.com I am sure it will help you find like-minded people. Enjoy your stay here and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Thanks a lot. still finding my feet around here and its a bit overwhelming trying to work out how it all works. Thanks for the link !
