in #spunkeemonkee5 years ago (edited)


Four years ago, I had an idea. I've had a LOT of ideas. Some were awesome - some... not! But I really believed THIS idea was something special. After a lot of brick walls and detours, this year I decided that I wanted to launch this idea on Steemit. Why? Because I love Steemit. I love the community here, I love the support here - and I believe that this place can be INCREDIBLE.

As soon as I decided to go for it - the FLOODGATES opened! It has been absolutely overwhelming to see the ways that people are coming alongside this project because they BELIEVE in it! Everything is happening so fast, and I just want to thank so many people for supporting this and supporting me! Thank you so much! I'm celebrating tonight - and I know you're all celebrating with me!!!! (Wanna know what Spunkee Monkee is? Check it out!!!)

On Saturday, I asked if I could be on @aggroed's show about dapps - IF there were a few minutes left at the end. He had never heard of me, never heard of my idea - but still graciously said, "Sure!" I waited for my turn, but so many people came on to share their awesome projects - time was slipping away. I worried that I wouldn't be able to do it justice with the few minutes left! I tried my best, but in the end I was 30 seconds too long! The best part of my presentation was cut off because the other radio show had been given the mic!

Oh, I was so disappointed! But, I tried - right?

Instead of being a "walk-on" for the show - @aggroed invited me to be an invited guest on his show for the next day! YES! He said we could talk for 15 minutes all about Spunkee Monkee! (@spunkeemonkee)

But we didn't talk for 15 minutes


And just when I thought it couldn't get any better... Could it GET any better???? YES!!!!! I had applied for a 5000 SP delegation, and though I thought I had offered a great price, no one fulfilled the lease delegation. The request was returned to me, so now I had to apply all over again! @aggroed asked me what my next step was.

"As soon as this show is over, I'm applying for the 5000SP lease again!" (-me)

"Don't worry! I already took care of it for you! There's your 5000 SP delegation" (-@aggroed)


I am still beaming with joy and appreciation from your support! Thank you so much for all your attention and interest and for having faith in this idea enough to delegate your power to it! I'm so looking forward to coming back to your show to follow-up, and I'm hoping that we will have TONS of data and updates to impress you!!!

oops - sorry - its Dreemie of course LOL - wrong account :) or.... right account! LOL you know what i mean hahaha

so PROUD of you, and your amazing idea!
Well done, Dreemsteem, well done!

Thank you @bluefinstudios!!!!!!!! I'm so excited!! :) This has been quite a ride hehhehe

Congratulations! Hope you manage to launch this dream game of yours!

oh my gosh! remember a few months ago when we were talking about it????? hahahahaha it's finally here!!!!!!!!!! and i'm so excited :)

Thank you @bengy!!!!! :)

It was more than a few months I think! Quite some time ago, but I'm happy that you are able to put it into action! Will you be running it like this, or will you be moving to a dedicated front end, so that the Steem part is hidden behind a 'normal' website/app?

Yep... Being built as we speak :)

This is just the alpha testing so we can work out any issues and mistakes now!

And yeah... Few months meaning... 6-ish? Hahahaha couldn't be more than that! I've only known you since our graduation lololol

Im super excited about this!!!! It's been fun to interact with the kids and challenge them gently! I really am hoping for but things with this project. I want to see this actually impact kids in a way that a "favorite teacher" is remembered all their lives!

Great to hear! I'll be curious when the front ends launch... at the moment, I'm not sure that I could get the older one to type up a post each day, time is short enough as it is!

we have templates that are SUPER easy to fill out! :) they take about 3 minutes hehehehe

but.... maybe when the time is right - she can join! and if not - we will still love her from afar!


Wow, Dreemie.... That's great news, I am so so happy to see support come your way, this is so gonna be big! Thank you Aggroed for coming through for us...🤗❤
