You missed me? Do believe in me, I won't be gone for long.

in #meetup2 years ago (edited)

When I started knowing my ways around a woman I learned something very useful in life. If you ask, what is that? And I'll say

'If you value something, sometimes you gonna let it go so it will come back better'

The last few weeks has been one of the busiest for me in a long while, first I had to travel to my hometown to see my family which I haven't see for a long time. Poor me, I could only see them for a few hours as I had a truck load of things to do in Uyo.

If you noticed, I had been quite unavailable online, my community engagement through posting and replies/comments has reduce drastically. That's because I had to expand a lot more on the outside world. Most of you know I help run things at @wafrica and also @steemjet. The aim with these two communities is adoption of cryptocurrency/Steem. While @wafrica focus on the western region of Africa, @steemjet take things a bit far globally.

Managing groups and people have always been my dream, my vision, my passion. And I'm grateful to the community for giving me a chance to do what I love doing most. I hope to do my best and live the dreams.

For now I'll be focus on the projects I have at hand and do not plan to take up anymore responsibilities from other communities for now. The work here is great, the dreams greater and the joy from achieving them even much greater, so I'll be giving in my best to make this work.

Now back to my title - the reason for writing this post. I know a lot of people might have noticed my absent online, I want you all to know that I'll be investing a lot of time off Steemit to still run Steem related business. I talk to lots of people this days, on the average 50-80 people everyday. I have to go out there to make our dreams come true.

For the next three days that I will be in Akwa Ibom I'll devote my time to teaching people about Steem, the cryptocurrency economics and the blockchain technology. I'll be at the university of Uyo by 12 noon today (Nigerian time) to talk to some old friends and explain this our world of cryptos to them. So, if you are in Uyo and want to join this session. Or you have a friend with one or two questions you can join us at Apples before the university of Uyo town campus from 12 noon to 6pm Nigerian time.

I'm really grateful to @surfyogi who's given me the chance to do what I love doing most. And for all his coaching and encouragements which have made me to look at Steemit beyond just a blogging site. Thanks also @dimimp, I don't even know how it started and now you believed this much in me. I have been given the gold, it's now left for me to stand by the furnace and purify it in fire so we can turn it into a glistening piece of precious stone. Don't miss me if I'm gone, have faith in me cause I won't be gone for long. So Long.

You seem to be doing a lot of work lately. Making plans and getting our dreams come true, that's our one true motive. @lordjames

It's great to see you educating people about steemit and the steemjet project. I am a big fan of your work and your contribution towards the community.

I understand that you have been busy lately in all the workload and stuff and it's great to see your efforts and dedication towards the community. I say let's pack our bags and get started in the journey of Steemjet promotions.

@dimimp has set the doorway to the brightest future the world is yet to see. And im amazed to see the outcome of it. Our project is already a success but let's make it another world . Your work is amazing and I wish you all the luck for the future too.

Anyways here are some links to some of my posts regarding the ongoing contests. I hope you like these.

This one is for the steemjet time contest held by @dimimp and organised by yourself @lordjames. I already mentioned you there, but I think that you missed it.

Hello @lordjames indeed you are really doing a great job for the steem community in Nigeria,wAfrica and globally.. Pls I just want to use this medium to appeal to you about an issue which is "steem awareness in the east" especially imo state which is home to about six tertiary institutions with students from various parts of the world(better market).
My request/idea is if there could be a conference or awareness campaign of some sort in this area to boost the steem awareness through steemjet or Wafrica sponsored activities believe me we would all notice a huge growth in the world of steem.

Pls consider this request and I am always ready to help if you find it worthy

Contact me on whatsapp, discord or telegram. I'll be glad to see this taken care of.

Exactly bro...
I do agree with him. Am in imo state too.

@lordjames would be glad if this request is been given a due consideration.

Lordgames, you and your comrades are doing alot of good in Nigeria and even africa. Steemit, and its vast community has made me to understand, that steemit is not about making the papers (money), but about affect the lives of people around you and outside.

Here in my place of work as a graduate surveyor, i dont fail to broadcast the good things steemit is doing and encouraging my colleagues to be apart of it. Of that, they won't regret. And by the way, it was my pleasure getting to meet you in person.

The sky is not our limit for steemit and its community and platforms running under it. The very best to [email protected] and all steemians.

I must appreciate you for your work and delication towards Steemjet community.... you have be worked so hard for promoting Steemjet project I wish to join the Steemjet community as I already mentioned about it in my recent post for steemjet time contest held by @dimimp sir and the winners of this contest are chosen by yourself @lordjames sir . I mentioned you in my post but may be because of your work load you didn’t get time to see that ....... here is the link of my recent post I hope you will see it and give your valuable comment on it ... thank you

https://steemit.com/steemjet/@muzaifwani/steemjet-my-entry-for-steemjet-time-contest

You're doing a lot of good work bro i wish you all the best and can't wait till you come to Port-Harcourt.

very nice post @lordjames, your journey can be a very good motivation for all of us, and especially for those who just joined in Steemit. I think, whatever we do, and have a lot of busyness, we have to visit our hometown, and our family, because family is very important in our life, the family always support us so that we can succeed.

I really salute you, because you can successfully manage the community in Steemit, I think you have many opportunities to continue working in Steemit, because people already trust this community to you. Thanks for sharing, I hope you will be more successful for the future... :)

Thats the spirit bro, you have all our support

Steemit is indeed beyond blogging. I have a life changing testimony to share with the world. Good to see you up for the game too @lordjames

Yes @mcsamm, thanks for all the great work at wafrica. Together, the sky will bear our names.

Hello @lordjames
Its so good to hear from you,after some time:)
You did a good thing to travel and visit your relations and family, after havent even seen them like forever:)
Wish i was in uyo😢😢 so as to grab some insight from you..well today isnt the last, another chance might come my way again:)
Thank you for sharing @lordjames i hope u also saw your brother that looks so much like you?

Yea, I have spent some quality time with him. I'll make arrangements to have him visit me in Abuja soon as he's done with this semester's exams.

Ok great
Hope his exams were okay?

Managing groups and people have always been my dream, my vision, my passion. And I'm grateful to the community for giving me a chance to do what I love doing most. I hope to do my best and live the dreams.

This is the beautiful thing about this platform I've come to discover. It gives you a place to pitch your dreams. Well done @lordjames. You've made a name for yourself and you're making impact all around the world too. I know you won't be gone for long so I'm patiently waiting for you to come back online. So much to talk about. Winks 😉

You waiting for me online or waiting for me offline?

You have few weighty responsibilities to care for, just like you said and I quote "Managing groups and people have always been my dream, my vision, my passion." You've a very sensitive dream coming true because managing people isn't a child's play, you have to be very careful in your dealings, a good listener is what you've to be and above all is being humble & flexible but not compromising standards.
To whom much given, more is expected!
Take care James.

This is much to grab. Thank you for this piece. I'll soak it up and drink it all.
