I used to spend most of my time scrolling thru my Facebook Newsfeed before. I didn't take steemit.com seriously when I first landed into this platform last year. Until this last few weeks I suddenly have a change of mind and finally decided to be an active steemian. I admit that I regret not paying attention in this platform.
Convincing other people to join this platform is really a big challenge for me. But I was really determined to do so. So let's bring it on!!!
After deciding to sail and explore steemit once again, I came to know @steemph, a non-profitable organization which aims to build communities and enrich lives through Steem and Steemit here in the Philippines. (thank you for this mam @dandalion). I believe in their advocacy, their missions and visions, as well as how they assist every Filipinos and even non Filipinos to their journey in the platform is truly admirable. The people behind this team are very accommodating and will surely help you to the best way they can. And there's no wonder why the family is getting bigger as days goes by.
I've started promoting steemit to my workmates who loves to travel. The two of them signed up and one of them has finally got an approval last week, Hi @ejeeywander! While my other workmate is still waiting for the approval.
Oftentimes I scroll thru my facebook account and whenever I see posts that I think is worth sharing in steemit, like travels, and those people that I've known that has the potential to earn with their talents and skills, that can contribute under arts, technology, charity and etc., I no longer hesitated, I am sending them a message in an instant asking them if they wanna join the platform.
Some of the people I've talked to so far are now waiting for their approval. While some are still thinking if they will believe me or not. I even persuading them to come with me on the first Cavite Steemit Meet Up Plan an event that will be held on Kawit Cavite for Caviteños as stated on Sir @watersnake101's post - Meet Up Caravan Full Steem Ahead - Cavite.
It is true that we cannot please everybody. Sometimes, I am loosing hope as I think that I am lacking of some convincing powers. Glad that I have ms.@dandalion and Tita @immarojas who are very supportive to me all the way. They are both cheering me and motivates me that help me boosts my eagerness to promote steemit.
