Steemit Connecting People: Meeting In New York

in #meetup4 years ago (edited)

Yes, steemit doesn't only provide a technologically and ideologically innovative space where people from all over the world are able to value, appreciate and reward content.

This network also builds a bridge between the digital world and real life.

Steemit connects people.

Spontaneous Meeting In New York

80 degrees, sun's burning and New York is pumping more than ever.

In the middle of this "concrete jungle where dreams are made of" (and where I traveled to being on vacation) I had the great opportunity to meet some really cool people: Steemians.

Thanks for organizing our get together, @dreemit! I'm so happy we finally met in person.

"It's that we only know each other from the internet and today we meet for the first time in real life."

@hansikhouse trying to explain our childish and loud excitement to a stranger 😆

Maybe it's generally complicated to understand from the outside what steemit has done to all of us.

It's a new mindset.

Since yesterday I definitely know that we're all fallen for this project in the same manner.

Steemit is an anchor for dreams.

Probably we natively don't speak the same language, didn't grow up on the same continent, have different skin colors or a different background.

So what?!

We are able to connect at once because we've got this anchor. We've got infinite things to talk about because our world is extremely exciting and colorful.

We're all part of this future plan.

So today I'm not only flashed by this amazing city which I'm visiting for the first time in my life, but also by its people.

Thanks for the time, guys!

It's been a blast and lot of fun meeting you. See you in Lisbon!

To all the other Steemians: YES, it's real. This community rocks on all channels!

Big hugs & kisses from New York 😍
Marly -

PS: The amazing and lovely @dreemit (love you much sweetie!!) is preparing a more detailed report of our meeting with more pictures. So stay tuned 😉


How awesome to put faces to the user names! The human connections are what Steemit is really all about!

I couldn't agree more Eric! Building bridges between the digital and the real world is definitely amazing. To be continued at Steemfest 😉👍

Safe travels Marly! Make sure you and @knircky win millions at the slot machines.

And put it all in Steem!(and buy us all places in steemit park!)

Haha excellent plan hon 😍

Hee hee, I thought you'd like it ;)

Hahahah high risk?! That's even crazier than buying Steem at $4 😆✌🏿️

It's amazing to see people from all over the world coming together, people with different stories and backgrounds but with the same vision and interests.
I believe this is the true meaning of Steemit and this is why Steemit has a bright future! :)

I totally agree @nikolina! That's one of the untouchable assets of steemit, there is no doubt about that.

Crystal clear upvote and resteem :-) Greetings.

I couldn't agree more!!! Thank you so much for coming over, it's been so great to see and talk to you 😘

I feel the same, I think it's the first time I've been giddy about something in quite some time! I love how you said 'childish excitement', that's exactly how it felt! XO

This is actually pretty awesome.

Definitely! And I want more of it!! 😄

Wish I was there! Sounded like an awesome get together, I'll make sure to escape work for the next one :D

Awesome plan! I bet there are going to be many more in the future 😉

Imagine how many we're going to have in Portugal! 😉
Thanks for stopping by!!

I hope you guys have tons of fun there :D

Looks like you guys had an awesome time! Glad to see this grow into something where this is possible!

True story @trafalgar! It feels awesome being part of it, and this is just the beginning. More epic meet ups, get togethers, workshops, think tanks to come in the future!

Haha yeh love it! It's definitely a new mindset and Steemit just sucks you in!

This is so CoOL! I think it would be really great to have all people at one place. SteemFest V2.0 going to be rocking.

Can't wait to travel to Lisbon to be honest 😉

Let's see those pics !!

Yeah!!! @dreemit is the boss, she's going to put the whole story together in her blog 🙃

Cool!gotta wait then ;)

Mini Steemfest for you guys... Enjoy!

Yeah it felt like a little fun warmup for Steemfest in Lisbon 😉✌️

It's amazing to be part of this global community. We're all different but have a common interest in making connections and sharing.

True story! We've got the same vision which brings us very close 😉
Thanks for stopping by Stephen!

How cool is that - I knew you could not resist posting on steemit - looks awesome, we miss you - come back to Europe soon

Haha it's hard to resist having such a beautiful message in my pocket 🙂
I'll be back soon (with more than 1K photographs and infinite stories to tell).
Big hugs from the Big 🍏

That is so flippin cool! I would love to see groups or yearly events etc for steemit would be awesome to connect with many of you in person as well. It seems like everyone on steemit has like mind sets and it is what builds that great sense of connection between us all.

I totally agree! Well it all depends on us - we just have to make it happen 🙂

That is so awesome! I need to find other Texans to do the same. It's so good for the soul to hook up with like-minded people, especially if you feel like you're alone in your interests. Steemit provides such a great platform for making real connections.

Sure, do that! I can totally recommended it 🙂

Excellent post!! Thanks Marley!

Thank YOU for stopping by 😉

Thanks Marly for highlighting such a positive development.

You would have to thank the whole group for joining, I'm just the messenger 😉 Thanks for commenting!!

Welcome and glad to follow you.

Great, you're getting to meet other Steemians. Yes, Steemit causes connections to all continents tied to the internet world.

This makes steemit even more real!

Definitely! So are you a "Spanish man" or is this just your nick? 😉

The real real spanish man , not a copy!! Olé, Fiesta, Paella, Tortilla xd

Jajajaja te has olvidado de mencionar la sangría 😁✌️

Not many beaches in New York but some new friends seems to have made up for that! Looking forward to more photos of your trip!

No beaches needed right now 🙂 I've already taken a lot of pics. Will be back in two weeks and start blogging a #travelseries. Now: Vegas! ✈️✌🏿️


Sweet! Don't blow all your crypto on the roulette wheel! Enjoy!

Nice to see everyone getting to know each other.

Yeah it was a great moment 🙂

What can I say that nobody else is thinking!
What a great meeting!!! so happy for ya, sweet!!!!

Wow, how crazy is that!! Enjoy it! Looking forward to seeing what you guys turn out

Awwww...I bet this was FUN! Putting faces to personality. Love it!

Hehe this is where you are :)

I understand the crazy childlike excitement of a steemit meetup, I felt it too in February in NYC ... I almost lept around ;-)

very benefits

It's just really awesome to see how Steemit doesn't just create a virtual community... but also a community "out there."

It's a strange and wonderful throwback to the very early days of the web; back when there were so few people on the entire Internet that we'd go and have gatherings around the place... and much like explaining Steemit now, we'd have to explain to random strangers why we were all so stoked about meeting people "from the Internet."

That was... meh... 22 years ago. Oh how the world has changed!

Thanks for sharing this!

Love your photo looks nice :)

Thank you 🙃
