Selfies in the Steem Creators Conference

in steemcreators •  2 months ago
I hate selfies. I would never buy a selfie stick. Apparently people love selfies, both being in them and looking at them. I guess it´s a trend that came to stay so you know what they say, adapt or die. So here I am taking a bunch of selfies with a bunch of Steemians who came to Toronto with one goal in mind: Meet Steemians and have the best time possible.

Well, achievement unlocked. We´ve only been here for one day and I already feel like I met this people months or years ago.

You see, that´s something that happen when you engage with other people on Steemit, when you are part of discord groups, when you comment on other posts and reply to people´s comments on yours.

When you meet in person it´s as if you were meeting an old friend, not a complete stranger who lives in the other side of the world.

Yesterday we went to a meet and greet and have a beer, then we went for a walk and found another bar.

We were so many that we had to wait outside until a big enough table got available.

Candid selfies. Taking the whole selfie business to the next level.

After that, some of us hit a club. I had one whiskey shot that destroyed me and had to go home. I may or may have not drank a few beers before that shot but don´t tell anyone.

Today I got to meet a lot more Steemians. Obviously I started to follow most of them.

Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! That last pic is the best ☆

Looks very exciting to meet up with other steemians.

Hahaha. Adapt to selfies or die... #sadtruths

WOO !! friend @anomadsoul I love this publication, how beautiful they all look together, I would like to share with many friends of steemit in that way, I'm starting this but I already have several acquaintances and good to know, .. I'm not a lover of the selfi but When the situation warrants, welcome, and take many pictures. Greetings and continue your friendly sharing!

woawwww que lindo!

Que maravilloso hacer estos encuentros, Steemit ha cambiado mucho de mi, de mi vida y mi manera de ver las cosas, y aunque no he cambiado a mis amigos si he agregado mas de ellos a mi lista, gracias a la interacción en los canales de discord han surgido buenas amistades, personas a las que se admira, con las que te compartes y disfrutas en una curación o en una simple conversación. Seria genial hacer este tipo de encuentros, aunque muchos no les agrada creo que este tipo de cercanía es necesaria, que bueno que hayas compartido tu encuentro con nosotros, así nos animamos a hacerlo también, un abrazo.

I can sense great energy and atmosphere! Enjoy your time together!

Excelente amigo, menos mal que no te gustan los selfies!!!!!!jajajaja . Me encanta esa experiencia, disfrútala mucho y sigue publicando para así disfrutarla nosotros aquí de este lado, muchas gracias por compartir, estaré super pendiente de tus próximos post
Saludos @mjoa07 ; )

So many happy faces.. :) love it!

Haha! You are fast becoming a great selfie taker. I wish there was a YouTube channel dedicated to coverage of this event, so every steemian would be able to watch.

If by any chance you meet @goldmatters, send my regards to him and a beautiful selfie with him.

Cheers!
