My First Anniversary on Steemit 🎂

in steemit •  6 months ago

It seems like yesterday... but it's really one year ago that I joined Steemit. So much has happened, it's hard to recollect everything. I started my journey on Steemit as a simple curiosity about this platform and ended up being a witness doing all sorts of things. It's an awesome turn of events that was unexpected. I'm very grateful to all those who have and continue to support me. Thank you. I don't want to repeat myself about all my witness achievements, I wrote a post last week that summarizes that in my Minnow Support Project Witness Application.

Last summer was a lot of fun, I met so many people on the chat sand had a great time. Sadly, many of them went idle for months now. However I'm happy to see that a lot of them have stayed, are live and kicking with all sorts of interesting projects. That's what makes this place great, being part of the dedicated collective for the improvement Steem. Surely there were hiccups, the road to glory is a bumpy one. I'm confident that Steem is up to the challenge and will eventually be recognized widely for its value. I'm happy to be part of the early adopters.

World Cup Sponsorship


FIFA 2018 World Cup kicks off (no pun intended) tomorrow in Russia. I'm proud to be sponsoring two Steemit contests during this awesome event.

Check them out and participate to win prizes. Good luck to everyone.

Anniversary Wish

And now, I'm going to blow the candle and make a wish...

(I wish that STEEM will be $10 this year so we can all be rich rich rich)

P.S. I just realized I have a new badge on

Congratulations! I just started like 2 weeks ago, and pretty new here still, but always trying to learn and to give more and more to this amazing community.

I will follow you so i can support your work whenever i can and i am able. Have a good day

Happy Bday, BabyBoy :D

Your bird looked very uncertain.. I cheered it up with a party hat..

happy returns of the day. friend

Woohoo! Happy Steemit-birthday! Did you see that @saffisara's anniversary is today, too? And @sircork's was yesterday. Some of my favourite people joined within the same two days. :) I'm glad you're here, my pirate friend! (((hugs))) 💖


We're the OG's :)


I am only 3 days old in steemit and look forward to celebrating my first anniversary>
Also i hope to make friends like you have made with @Katrina-ariel, @saffisara and @sircork.

This shows that you can make friends in steemit and have a lasting bond.

I didnt think anyone in steemit even notices others enough to make friendship but i hope i will make some like all of you guys have. It is very promising after reading this comment

May that great desire, which you ask today on your first anniversary become a reality; the Steemit, everything is possible.
Happy first year for you, now to aapagar the candle.

Cool... Soon we have more fun here :) I hope this day start good :)
And Hi from Estonia :)


first i really love Estonia. SO one of the reason why i commented is because i saw you are from there.

I was born in Kenya, Africa and learnt of Estonia at a very early age. I wanted to move there and live there when i grew up but ended up in Canada by default. Your country is a tiny but very nice place. I got my friend that was studying in finland to cross the boarder and visit for me .

Sorry for the lengthy essy but i was happy to see someone from Estonia. Have a very good night and hope i get to see you again in steem. I will give you a follow. not much worth because i amonly 3 days old but it will add up to the number of followers you have.


It is ok :) ... and yes Estonia is small just 1,3 milj people live here :) I hope soon you can come and see summer here, summer is cool here :)

My compliments! I've just started my adventure on Steemit and I hope in a year time to achieve some results!

Congratulations and Happy First Anniversary 😊


I am sorry I make one commend more... I just want say Thank you!! that you make time and look. This 3 vote are cool.

Weeeee, HAPPY STEEMVERSARY :). I have only been around 5 months and it seems so looooooooong ago :). All the best wishes and thanks always for your kindness and support.

Happy Anniversary!

Best of Luck!

Thank you for making Steemit a better place. You're a real exception. Vote Drakos for witness.

Congrats to you @drakos. You have done a lot in one year.

Btw, it's bizarre that I have seen your name and Steemians talking good things about you for many months now (places like @thealliance where I'm a member)...and only tonight I just started following you lol

Sorry about that, my man. Do not know how the hell I overlooked you. But safe to say you are NOW a part of my regular Manuel Curation trail :)

Happy 1st Anniversary!

First of all congratulations @drakos on completing one year on this platform and good to know that you've had an interesting journey and how you moved from normal Steemian to Witness. And you've doing great job as an witness and you're engaging through your post too and you are giving updates too, so overall you are effective and i want to wish you more heights on this platform and in life.

Good to know about your two contest Sponsorships regarding the FIFA World Cup and I've already registered for the SteemitBoard World Cup Contest. Keep up this productive and amazing work.

Thanks for celebrating with us through this post and wishing you an great day. Stay blessed. 🙂
