10 things I love about Steemit

in steemlove •  5 months ago

Hi to you, on the other side of the screen. :) Firstly, I hope you're having a wonderful beginning of the week!

I was tagged by @maverickinvictus to write 10 things I love about Steemit, which is what I'm doing today. I've been on this amazing platform for about a month and a half. I can say that it feels like I've always been a part of this community, as it feels like home. It brings me so much joy to be able to write and read stories, engaging with incredible people.

What are the 10 things I love about Steemit?

1 - Supportive community

I've met, here, the kindest people that just want to do good. Everyone wants to help each other and be supportive. I can't stop smiling when I read your lovely comments and feedback. It was overwhelming to me to receive such a positive reaction, in an amazing way.

2 - Engagement

I get to engage with incredibly talented people , being inspired by them. There're many great texts that inspire me to keep going and improve myself. I really enjoy reading other people's stories and discovering different cultures, that I wouldn't know of otherwise. Reading different opinions gives me another perspective over my own thoughts. It makes me a better and more understanding person! Engaging with you all makes me happy :)

3 - Write about what I love

I can write about my feelings, passions and hobbies. I could do the same in any other blog platform, but I feel like in Steemit, people are more open to it. The content gets to different people quicker and easier, than in other blog platforms, where no one will know of your page, unless you publish in many different places. This is why I like the community built in Steemit, in which you can easily find new blog pages.

4 - I can be myself

I found a home in Steemit - a place where I can be myself and write my thoughts without being afraid of getting judged or mislead. I mentioned before, everyone is really understanding and open to different opinions.

5 - Multi-cultural

I love how many cultures can be found in this platform. From west to east, north to south, everyone is equal and each one has something to offer. Steemit celebrates diversity, love and creativity, and that's amazing. It makes it such an unique place to be.

6 - Creativity Freedom

Content creators are able to express themselves in so many different ways - through stories, poems, songs, photography, video, artworks,... The possibilities are endless. There's a space for any niche, and there're no limitations when it comes to being creative.

7 - Minnow Support

Almost any beginning in life is tough - either mastering a subject, getting a new job career, starting a new social network profile or blog. I knew starting a blog in this platform would be hard, but I didn't imagine how supportive this community would be, when it comes to newbies. There're many initiatives and curators, like the #minnowsupport, or #newbieresteemday, that praise the new content creators and take time to look for great newbies out there.

If you're a newbie, I'd 100% recommend using their hashtags in your posts, as well as joining different Discord channels (NewbieResteemDay, The Steem Experience,...)

8 - Great Content

There're many different and interesting subjects you can read about. So many creators on this platform are incredibly talented and, as I mentioned before, great content is appreciated.

9 - Steemit is Therapeutic

@leeart mentioned this before, and I agree 100%. Writing my feelings and learnings help me to overcome my own insecurities - I become less 'afraid' of being myself and less introverted. I always enjoyed writing, so I can enjoy it while making friends and good memories.

10 - It opens doors to new blockchain projects

Recently, I've been noticing many new projects using the blockchain. The idea of decentralised platforms like Steemit is becoming more popular and that's awesome!

In Mave's challenge, he mentioned about taking note of how long it took to write the post. I didn't write it all in one go, so I took note of the different times I spent working on it. It took me about 1 hour to write the whole post, but it only took me 10 minutes to write the 10 sub-titles/bulletpoints.

What are the things you love about Steemit? Would love to know your opinion! :)

I love your list!

I agree with your number 9

Writing my feelings and learnings help me to overcome my own insecurities - I become less 'afraid' of being myself and less introverted

indeed it has helped me cope from my depression and is a way for me to release a lot of my repressed issues.

Multi-cultural indeed! I have been able to talk to people from all over the world and see a part of their world. It is just amazing!

Thank you Mave! :)
Oh yes, it's really therapeutic. It's something to look forward to and a place where we can be ourselves!
I love meeting new people all over the world too. It's so interesting to see how different cultures see and experience the world.

This is a very solid list. If more people and more people loved Steemit for those items, it would definitely be a better place. It looks like you've got all the best priorities for all the right reasons. Well done. Again. :)

·

Thank you so much for your kind comment, @glenalbrethsen :) You always have the nicest words! :)

I like the fact that you acknowledged the cathartic effect of expressing yourself online and that Steemit is a very receptive and supportive environment.

Namaste, Jaichai

I'm glad you like it. Steemit is a great place to express feelings and experiences, as well as getting feedback from them. Thank you for your comment!

I like how it kills time and at the same time consumes a lot of time haha! When you like what you read and see here, it just makes you want to keep steeming.

Sometimes when I write posts, I do it in between my work. It takes me a whole day to finish it and then sometimes there are still editing that needs to be done.

·

Haha it definitely does! Time goes by so fast, when I'm on Steemit. I need to stop myself from navigating it, otherwise I'd stay around 'till early morning :)
It's the same with me. I need make breaks while I'm writing. It's rare that I write a post from start to finish, without stopping.

I have more time here in steemit every weekends but that is when I don't get lazy haha!

I really do agree on these items. Those are the reasons why i am hook up with this app. In addition, you can find or discover your hidden talents in steemit.

Yes, that's another really good thing about Steemit. It's awesome to be able to discover hidden talents :) Thank you for your comment!
