Uniting Steemians Through the Delight of the Steemfest

in steemfest •  2 years ago

Is it just me or was that one of the most surreal, unique and best experiences of your entire life? Meeting such a collective gathering of talented, enthusiastic and intelligent individuals this weekend is something I will cherish forever. The only downside of the event was the depression felt knowing it was all going to come to an end. I’m sure many others can share my feelings as it was so professionally put together and the atmosphere was just so damn perfect! I still find it hard to believe that this all happened in a period of just two and a half days!

I have had the pleasure of meeting so many people from all walks of life. It didn’t matter where you came from, what ethnic background you originated from, how much money you had compared to others. Steemfest was a celebration of people connecting with each other regardless of race, colour or creed. The warm bond and happiness I felt with everyone at the event is something l’ll never ever forget. With all the amazing memories I acquired, it would be impossible to list them all unless I split this post into many parts, lol! So here are some of my personal highlights.


The Speeches

The introductions by @roelandp and @ned were very welcoming and beautifully executed. I particularly love that tulip suit and the cool story to go with it. @ned is clearly a visionary as we can see he believes whole-heartedly in the platform and is watching how the community is slowly evolving to where real, lasting friendships are being forged. Steemfest, I believe, is only just the beginning of many future Steem festivals to come (but what a beginning it is!).


The beautiful @heiditravels gave a heart-warming talk about her experiences as a Steemit globe trotter. How she sees crypto currency as a breakthrough technology to feed, clothe and sustain those in parts of the world where resources are very low. She has seen first-hand how those people live and to hear the stories from her standing right in front of me was very special indeed.


The incredible @allasyummyfood gave a wonderful presentation on how to create chocolate truffles! The consummate professional that she is, Alla explained everything expertly and the end result was mouth-wateringly delicious! The amount of YouTube and Twitter followers she has gained is testament to her success and popularity as a skilled chef. We thank you for your effort and contributions for us all. You truly are a gem.


The Entertainment

OK, now let’s see. We have the impeccable master DJ Kevin Wong, the gorgeous songstress Tatiana Moroz and a hall full of pumped-up Steemians ready to party hard! Alla would be proud with that set of ingredients, I’m sure she’d agree. The Tobacco theatre was thundering with bass and top tunes as tasty food and drink was served around the venue. We were all spoilt rotten courtesy of the Steemfest team and I’m so grateful to have been a part of it!

I also want to say a special congratulations to the Golden Steem Award winners. @burnin is a genius to think about implementing this novel idea and I hope it carries on into future Steem events. It gives all up-and-coming authors and artists the exposure they need and just adds nicely to the momentum of community building.

The farewell dinner was one of the most memorable recollections I have as not only were we treated to some really tasty gourmet-quality food but it was also the first group Steemian photo of everybody. Remember, we met so many different people at Steemfest so now at a glance we can see who is who and let the good memories come flooding back again!


Fellow Steemians

The Steemit community was by far the best part of this extraordinary experience. All of you are what made the whole event just work! Since writing all down all the great times I had is near impossible, these are my personal messages for all the great people I had the pleasure of meeting.

@anca3drandom and @the-future - So great seeing you guys at the Steemfest. Keep up your great drawing, anca and hope to meet you both again in the near future.

@andrarchy - It was a pleasure to meet you at the Steemfest. I only hope that the next time we can have more time to speak. You’re so down to earth and easy to speak to.

@arcange - During the brief time we spoke, it was clear to see what a cool person you are. My only regret is your sudden sad departure from the fest. Hope we can meet again soon.

@ballinconscious - You are the ultimate hipster! Stylish, friendly and a super cool guy! Thanks for the great memories.

@beanz - One of the nicest people I’ve met. We have so much in common and we must try to meet up again soon. Possibly a London Steemit meet?

@blueorgy - Tall, dark and handsome! Genuinely nice guy and so happy I could get to know you. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

@burnin - Such a great contributor to the event and all round great guy! Cannot wait to see you at the next fest!

@demotruk - A true gentleman and knowledgable guy. Great to chat with you (even though the last day we all got drenched from the rain, lol!) We also share the same name in Chinese!

@everlove - One of my few regrets from the fest was not talking to you enough. Full of wisdom, care and joy, you are one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met. Thank you for the privilege of getting to know you.

@exyle - Hey exyle! My hubby can’t stop speaking about you, what have you done, lol! One of the most genuine people I have met. Thanks for making the experience of the Steemfest so much better.

@future24 - Had some good laughs with you and genuine happiness when around you. Roll on, Steemfest II.

@gargon - Hey gargon! A sunny, fun boy from Spain. Loved to hang out with you and learn more about the Spanish Guild project and also your favourite movies.

@guerrint - Words are hard to express the greatness when speaking about the fabulous Tara. She is such an intelligent and beautiful woman, has a great heart of pure gold and completed my trip to the Steemfest. Thank you so much, Tara.

@juanmiguelsalas - I just remember you being always happy and full of joy! Again, you brought a smile to my face whenever I saw you. Look forward to checking out your posts and your incredible photos!

@kevinwong - Loved your presentation and DJing skills. Really polite and soft spoken, the event wouldn’t be the same without you.

@knozaki2015 - A very likeable guy with some serious moves on the dance floor. Thanks for the great company and laughs.

@lisadang - Beautiful inside and out, it was great catching up with you. I wish you every success in learning Chinese!

@logic - Couldn’t believe I finally met you after speaking so much in the chat room. You are as nice, if not nicer in real life. Was great to see you!

@mammasitta - Full of worldly wisdom and goodness. Hopefully we can see each other again soon to continue the learning experience and get more life advice from you!

@michelle.gent and @s0u1 - Excellent, friendly people who were always so bubbly and sweet. Great to make your acquaintance at the fest!

@mrs.steemit - Very impressed by your thoroughly prepared presentation. We shared a lot of fun at the photo booth. Hope to meet with you again real soon.

@pmartynov - The Steemstagram creator! What a fantastic idea! It will take off and be very successful I’m sure. Was awesome to see you. Roll on the next Steemfest!

@nanzo-scoop and @ak2020 - Because I’m so small, you remind of a big, friendly bear! Such nice, genuinely sweet people. (p.s. well done @ak2020 for helping with the truffles. You’re a natural!)

@ned - Handsome, down to earth, genuine, articulate! Hard to put into words the effort and joy you brought to everyone at the Steemfest. You are indeed the man! Thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart!

@roadscape - What a humble and intelligent guy. Learned so much from you about the organisational aspects of Steemit. Really boosted my confidence in the future of Steemit! There is no doubt Steemit will climb to dizzying heights! Thanks for everything!

@robrigo - Always smiling and happy. What a wonderful person you are to be around. You helped make the event so much better for me. Thanks for the pleasure of meeting you!

@rocket.chat - Such a great sense of humour like yours is so hard to find these days. It was really great to meet you and have some hilarious times together!

@roelandp - The mastermind behind it all. Still not sure how you pulled it off so seamlessly, but you somehow did it and all the posts and comments sharing your praise only confirm it’s unbelievable success. Thank you for giving me the best weekend I’ve ever had in my life. All because of your amazing planning and co-ordination. You’re the best!

@saramiller - I hope one day I can be even half as flexible as you! What a lovely person you are! And thanks so much for the cool yoga class. Will definitely see you again I’m sure.

@sharingeverybite and @shenanigator - I met you guys early on and I was amazed at how fast we got chatting like we knew each other for ages before! Very special indeed and something I look forward to building upon when we meet again!

@shla-rafia - Still can’t pronounce your name correctly, lol! Such a pleasure meeting you at the fest and will see you again soon!

@sneak - So happy to have had that brief chat with you in the club. I remember you asking me if you could buy my watch for $400. Is that offer still on the table, lol?

@steemrollin - Rarely do you find a more knowledgeable and committed person as the great @steemrollin. You are so humble and easy to talk to. Every time I saw you in the crowd, you brought a smile to my face. An all-round fantastic guy and Steemfest necessity.

@tatianamoroz - Your amazing voice is only equalled by your great personality. You are always laughing and full of joy. You take things in your stride which I really adore about you. Take care till we meet again.

@wadepaterson - A really likeable and sincere guy, one of Steemfest’s cream of the crop! So glad to have met you and will see you at the next big event I’m sure.

@wingz - There can only ever be one @wingz. Life and soul of the party and hilarious to boot. You are indeed a joy to be around. I’m sure we will catch up in London soon which is fantastic.

@xanoxt - Learnt a lot about steem exchanges and transactions from you. You’re really intelligent and explain things very well. Thanks for the time you took to talk to me. Until next time!

I apologies profusely if I missed anyone out of my list as the time was so short and everything was moving at such a frantic pace.

A Look Back At All The Fun Times We Had

The cool "Snapcube"

The great @ballinconscious and @xanoxt

@celebr1ty and @grumlin about to do a handstand!

@ballinconscious - The coolest hipster you could ever meet

Triple girl power! @guerrint, myself and @beanz

How flexible can the excellent @saramiller get!

Group photo bomb! @saramiller, @lisadang, @burnin, myself, @mrs.steemit and the cute @rocket.chat

The End (For Now)

As is the general consensus, we all had a total blast and I cannot wait for the next Steemfest in 2017. The memories, the great times and the fun were things I had never experienced on this scale in my entire life. At least I have the excitement and anticipation of meeting up with all you guys all over again. Love you all!


Steemfest周末是我有生以来最真实,最独特和最美好的一次经历,相信其他参与的成员也同感吧!能和这么多有才华和热情洋溢的人在这里聚会,真是太让人难忘了。美中不足的是所有聚会都会有终结的时候。知道这一切都要结束,难免有种失落的感觉。我相信许多人都可以分享我的感觉,这次聚会组织得非常专业非常成功,气氛及所有一切都非常完美。至今我仍然很难相信这一切都只发生在短短的两天半时间里。
我很高兴能够见到这么多来自各行各业的人。 无论你从哪里来,有什么种族背景,有钱或没钱,这都不重要。 Steemfest是一场庆祝人与人互相连接在一起的盛会。 在Steemfest里与大家交谈我所感受到的温暖和亲切感,着实让人难忘。我脑海记载着满满的美好记忆,是不可能一一列出,除非我把这篇文章分成许多部分,哈哈!所以我只在这里和大家分享一下我个人的亮点。

演讲

@roelandp@ned的开场介绍非常受欢迎并且相当成功。 我特别喜欢@roelandp那潮流的郁金香西装以及他介绍的荷兰郁金香历史。 @ned显然是一个有远见的人,因为我们可以看到他全心全意地护理着平台,注视着社区如何演变成社区成员之间建立持久和真正友谊的地方。 我相信这次的Steemfest集会只是一个开始,一个非常成功的开始。
美丽的@heiditravels给我们热情的介绍她环游世界的经历。 她如何看待数字货币作为一种突破性的技术来支持和帮助生活在世界上资源低地区的人们。 Heidi站在我们面前和大家分享她旅游经历的这些真实故事,让我感觉非常特别。

@allasyummyfood给我们亲身示范如何制作巧克力松露! 她很专业耐心地给我们介绍每一个步骤,最后还与大家分享美味可口的成品!Alla在YouTube和Twitter庞大的追随者数量足以证明她作为一个熟练的厨师的成功和受欢迎程度。 我们感谢你在这个平台所做的努力和贡献,不愧是Steemit的一颗闪光的宝石。

娱乐节目

好,现在让我们来看看。 我们有无可挑剔的DJ Kevin Wong,华丽的歌手Tatiana Moroz和一个超级大厅为所有Steemians狂欢做好准备! 烟草剧院终于被低音和顶级曲调打响了,场地四周有精心制作的美味食物和源源不断的酒精饮品提供, 我们都被Steemfest团队宠坏了,感激的同时也很自豪自己是这个大集团的的其中一员!
我还要特别祝贺 Steemit金奖获得者。 @burnin是能想出Steemit的奥斯卡版本真是天才,呵呵。我希望这个项目会在以后每届Steemfest里流传下去,因为它为新兴作家提供他们需要的曝光机会,同时也增强了社区的建设发展。
告别晚餐是我最难忘的回忆之一,因为我们不仅享受了一级厨师精心准备的美味晚餐,这也是我们Steemit社区的第一组团体合照!在Steemfest遇到了这么多来自各地和从事各种行业的人,现在我们一眼就能看出谁是谁,把我们重新带回到这美好的回忆里!

Steemit成员

能见到Steemit成员并面对面交流,是我这次来Steemitfest的最美好的体验,有你们所有人的支持这次聚会才会如此成功!由于不能把所有美好时光都记录下来,我只好尽自己所能总结我遇见的超棒的Steemit成员。

结束

正如大家一样,这次Steemfest的成功让我迫不及待地等着2017年举办的下一届Steemfest!那些回忆和美好时光都是我没有经历过的。我很兴奋地期待着与大家再次见面!
很遗憾这次除了我以外,没有其他CN成员参与这次盛会。在中文区和大家交流,分享生活的点点滴滴已有三个多月了,我真的很期待下次Steemfest能和中文区的同伴们见面!

What a beautiful write-up @rea . Fantastic and awesome woman, always welcoming and enthusiastic. Many interactions in this Steemfest adventure and I'm really looking forward to meeting you again in a London meetup :)

·

Thank you Olli for your kind words. I also look forward to our next London Meetup, but this time you are not allowed to exit early, haha!!

·
·

I promise :)

I am not a socialized individual I must have chatted with over 30 people at steemfest though. More new friends in 3 days than I had for years. I can guess what kind of a blast it would be for more sociable individuals than me.
I was searching for the name of that hipster... thanks a lot.

·

Haha, you are welcome! I understand how you feel. I am also bit shy and never good at meeting new people. But all these people I met at steemfest are so awesome and easy to talk to, that really help!! By the way, love the Amsterdam photos you took, well done!

·
·

thanks, i didn't shoot many, but there are some I really liked too.

·

I am not a socialized individual I must have chatted with over 30 people at steemfest though. More new friends in 3 days than I had for years.

Totally! I had this same experience; I am an introvert and I spent 19 hours talking to strangers. It was incredible.

好热闹的聚会,期待CN成员也举办一次

·

@ability 好主意!

Goodness! What an awesome post!

Thank you for the mention, it really was a pleasure to meet you both <3

I missed the truffles though :(

I can't wait to see you all again! xxx

·

Thank you! Likewise I enjoy reading your posts too! I will make sure you are both invited for our next London Meetup, lol

·
·

Awesome! Thank you <3

Thank you for sharing this. I feel that I had been there too somehow. However, what pleases me more is to watch how you grow in this platform from just three+ months ago as a newbie into someone who did a Steemit promotion all by yourself and then joined SteemFest and met so many senior and important Steemians there. Recalling your first Chinese intro:
https://steemit.com/cn/@rea/37vghs
You should be proud of yourself, @rea ! :-) By the way, ned is not the man, @nedtheman doesn't exist. Dan is the man. haha!

·

Heya @deanliu,

You're just too sweet for words, thank you! I just hope one day I can see you at the next Steemfest in person, it was an amazing experience, I promise you. The way we all connected, starting out as not really knowing each other to making friends really fast. No fakeness, no problems, just an all round great vibe. All the posts from the other attendees isn't just empty flattery but real feelings they felt. I know, I was there so can honestly vouch for them too, lol!

Please try to come to the next one. If this Steemfest is anything to go by, you'll have an absolute blast!

·
·

actually I am just trying to negotiate with you to be your agent (I've secured the position of papa-pepper 's agent for China market) though I haven't figured out what I can sell in you ... I can represent your hubby too, discount for two ...
See what I am doing here!? creating topics for us to talk at next SteemFest ... XD

·
·
·

That's great! I'm sure you'd be an agent who would excel at his job! Sounds like a plan. :)

来晚了,非常感谢你的分享,Steemfest会场很热闹,感觉就相当于线下朋友之间的聚会,但事实上并不是一个讨论会议,这次的聚会不会改变目前的现状,@ned虽然在护理这个平台,但其它的大鱼们并不听话,制度需要解决,期待更多的好消息, 币价下跌就能说明问题, 中文区的朋友们聚会见面,以后会有安排 :)

·

虽然这次聚会没有解决目前价格下跌的问题,和这么多有才华,技术和热情洋溢的成员见面,确实让我对这个平台的未来充满了信心! 期待着中文区成员聚会哦,呵呵。

相当不错,感同身受啊。希望steem有个更大的发展和未来吧。

·

同感,期待下次Steemfest我们中文区的同伴也能来哦!

Thanks for bringing this. Glad to see you have fun.

·

It was awesome beyond words. Try to make it to the next one.

·
·

Sigh..... Go time, no money. Got money, no time.
There's always hope.:-)

This is a great post @rea, and I love the photos! Steemfest was truly magical; I'm grateful to have been part of it! Thank you for coming to yoga, I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. It is my pleasure to share it!

·

Heya @saramiller

No, thank you for being kind enough to give me a great yoga lesson! One constant memory I have of you whilst back in London is your beautiful glowing smile. Always so happy, always so great to be around. I just hope at the next meet we have more time to spend together.

Thanks for adding to my great memories, wonderful @saramiller.

·
·

Thank you @rea! I look froward to the next event and seeing you again, lovely! (and doing more yoga!)

Looks like a lot of fun @rea

·

It was indeed, @funnyman. All sparked off by the incredible @roelandp.

·
·

will Definitely try to attend the next event

I'm glad that we got to spend some time together and hopefully we will meet again :) It was great meeting you and ezzy.

·

Thanks very much, @anca3drandom. You and @the-future are such humble and genuinely nice people. @ezzy and I speak about you both so much! Can't wait to meet you both again in the near future.

·

Such a sweet couple you are ! We needed more time and days to connect @anca3drandom

·
·

Yes, we needed more days. It was nice meeting you, you give such a positive vibe.

·
·
·

thank you ! I felt the same even before we met :) big hugs your way

Great meeting you! You rock :)

·

Thanks, until next time!!

What a brilliant post with so much detail. Glad you really enjoyed it

·

Thanks for the great comment, @ianstrat. It was the best weekend of my life. It was that good, lol! :)

Thanks for the kind words (and the photos)! It's been a blast!

·

It certainly was a blast, @burnin. Enjoyed every minute spent talking with you and look forward to many more in the future. :)

Great Pictures... and words! Thanks for sharing!

·

Thanks, @richardcrill! Sorry we never really had a chance to talk properly but the time was so short! The next fest, for sure! :)

·
·

·

It was lovely to meet you too! I sneakily took a picture of you and @beanz when you were not looking, haha! Please come to the following meetups so we can have more fun times together. :)

It was a pleasure meeting you at the SteemFest and I'm looking forward to see​ you and Ezzy again. You are a lovely couple!

·

The pleasure was all ours, @the-future. You and Anca are so lovely. Look forward to catching up again when you come to the next Steemfest. I'm sure you will be there! :)

THANK YOU @rea! very kind words for everyone! Happy to hear you had such a great time... Wow I'm slowly starting to forget the hard work and want to do it over again this weekend!

·

@roelandp! Oh, thank you so much for the comment! Lol, ready for another one next week, you're like a machine! Where do I sign up, lol?

But seriously, I don't think it's possible for you to ever know how great we all consider you to be!

You really pulled out all the stops for us, the Steemit community. I mean, you literally helped give me (as well as many others) the best weekend of my life. An unbelievable acheivement. Thanking you will never be enough, @roelandp. Believe me, the next fest and seeing you again cannot come soon enough.

Please also give a big hug from me to your incredibly supportive and beautiful family. Those pancakes were pure heaven!

We all love @roelandp!!! Till next time... :)

·

Hahaha ! I know that feeling when you get off that high adrenaline rush of organizing something awesome. Well done @roelandp

@rea rea--what a beautiful post. Takes me right back into this euphoric weekend. What a magical event, every moment with everyone! Thanks for the shoutout and all your awesome words. That was quite the compliment. So truly great to meet you. Though we may not have talked as much as we would have liked, still the connection is strong and just being together was a delight beyond words. Thank you for being you. So grateful to know you!!!

·

Heya @everlove.

You don't have to spend too much time in your company to realise you're talking to someone very special. You have such a warm aura about you and I adore you for it. The joy you shower on others is infectious and I really look forward to catching up again with you again properly. You're too sweet, @everlove. Till we meet again... :)

·
·

Truly blessed by your witness. <3

I'm sorry I missed this earlier. I've been catching up with the speeches today and I was really impressed. Neil Strauss is my favourite so far. It was better than most TED talks I've seen.

·

No probs! You would have loved it I'm sure. The Neil Strauss talk was very inspiring, his tips on writing were so useful. If we have a UK meetup, please try to make it. Would love to catch up in person. :)

·

Totally agree with you about Neil !!

·
·

Yes I was really impressed with his talk:)

Wow ! What a perfect summery and smashing photos . Thank You @rea for your sweet and kind shoutout . Luv you all !

·

Of course, @mammasitta, was a real pleasure seeing you at the fest. Look forward to our next meeting. Lots of love to you...

·
·

Meanwhile it's 4.35 am and I must be crazy to be online reading but I was so busy past weeks and mostly offline. I missed this platform and all of you

It was really nice meeting you @rea! Also I've checked with @on0tole, since UK is not part of SEPA, it isn't possible to directly withdraw into pounds, but if you have a euro account in a bank that participates in SEPA, it would be possible to withdraw to it, but then you'd have to convert to pounds.

Hey @xanoxt. It was my pleasure meeting you. You really know your stuff so thanks for taking the time to explain to me about this. Your outline of opening a euro account and changing up to pounds through there is great. I'll look into that. Take care and thank you so much again!
