I spent the day in Discord getting to know new friends here on Steemit a bit better. I found this incredibly rewarding, and I'm not talking about upvotes. There are many gems on this platforms with new ones to discover daily. I find Discord channels to be a great way to focus in on finding the highest quality people.
There is phenomenal work here too. I'm here for that. But my heart is always searching for that one-to-one connection. Let me tell you about a few times I've found that on Steemit.
First, I arrived here with my friend @raymondspeaks. Together, we started pulling our friends in. We live on different continents, so I met his friends and he met mine. Right here.
Then @doctorwillwho showed up in my comments with the most brilliant series of empathetic comments I've seen on any social media. I have published my work a lot of places, so I'm not saying this lightly. In fact, one viral piece I published with Huffington Post (before it was HuffPo and before it decided to remove its contributor platform) has still been bringing messages to my various inboxes that are deep, personal and touching. But @doctorwillwho takes the cake for being consistently caring, especially to a stranger.
I have found other amazing humans here, like @didic who writes all the things I want to read and about all the things I want to buy and apparently knows all the people I want to know.
There is @amarbir whose desire to bring good into this world through being helpful is breathtaking.
And what of @arbitrarykitten whose every post is polished and interesting? How does she do it? How?
Recently I discovered @shannonbarber is here. OMG. I have been following their work on Facebook for a couple of years. Finding them here made me geek out. I practically threw my laptop.
There are JUST TOO MANY to name them all, but I need to mention @aschatria (Die Hard Steemit) and @jaynie (Steemit Bloggers), both of whom have worked to create positive connections through post engagement here on Steemit. And because of them, I have met many others.
Friends, ALL of you, I am grateful to get the opportunity to know you. With that said, I would LOVE for you to link your BEST work in the comments here so I can get to know more of you even better. Feel free to tell me why you are sharing the link you chose. I look forward to engaging with you.
