One Down, Many More to Go!
Happy One Year Anniversary to My Boo Steemit!
I joined the Steemit community in July of last year, shortly after it launched and had no prior experience with crypto currency. I learned a lot from this first year of really diving into the world of crypto currency, learning about bitcoin, and other altcoins. Although I haven't been as active as I would have liked, with my first year down I see nothing but a long committed relationship with Steem. I harbored some guilt about not being more involved in the Steem community through out the last year, especially with my boyfriend, an avid Steem blogger and crypto enthusiast in my ear telling me to post. However, I'm vowing to be an active presence in this community moving forward.
This is Just the Beginning
Steemit is growing and I intend to grow with it! I may have missed out on a lot of earnings this year just by getting caught up in the mundane tasks of everyday life, college, work, traveling, etc. Posting to Steemit somehow became more and more of a daunting task. I would procrastinate for weeks and eventually convince myself that posting was a waste of time, unless I had a really well thought out post that I felt would grab people's attention and get votes but as I witnessed my boyfriend and friends posting on steemit, making money and getting up votes on posts of a wide variety and realized I've been doing it all wrong. I was being so overly critical that I lost out on opportunities for upvotes by not posting at all. I decided now that I actually have the time to post I will and even if it only makes a couple cents thats fine by me...shoot even if I don't make anything that's okay. The important thing is to not give up because every post is an opportunity!
Goals for My Second Year
