Steem UK - latest list of active steemians & the next Virtual Meetup - Thursday 29 November

in #steempress3 years ago (edited)

The list of active steemians in the UK continues to grow - now up to 130.

I am sure there are still more people around Britain we haven't found. If you know anyone in the UK who isn't on the list let me know.

The first UK Steem Virtual Meetup went well and everyone thought it would be good to make it a regular event to help grow Steem in Britain.

So I have set a date for one more Virtual Meetup this year - Thursday 29 November.

The Meetup will be on my radio show on MSP Waves, 8pm - 11pm UK time.

The goal of the meetup, as well as getting to know each other and networking a little bit more, will be to progress the ideas discussed in the first meetup to hold at least four regional events around the country.

These are still subject to change but currently we are considering...

  • in the Midlands - a music related event

  • in London and the South East - a food related event

  • in Wales and the South West - a film related event

  • in the North - a business / crypto related event

Check out this post for more details on each of these...

Anyone in Scotland up for organising an event as well?

News & Updates

The Midlands

In the Midlands @article61 is considering ways to to approach the Confetti Institute of Creative Technologies in Nottingham. Check out his post for more information...

London and the South East

In London and the South East @redrica is going to be meeting a number of steemians from the London area at SteemFest this week. She will be talking to them about ideas for a regional event. I am looking forward to hearing more from that.

I believe there is an ongoing program of local social meetups around London. If anyone has any details do let me know and I will add in here.

Lloyd Davis @lloyddavis, based in Guildford in the South East, is considering holding another SteemCampUK event. The location isn't decided yet, but he is open to ideas...

Wales and the South West

Over the next few weeks I will be regularly visiting various towns in west Wales (Aberystwyth, Carmarthen, Aberaeron) as well as Swansea and Bristol. If anyone fancies a mini-meetup in any of those places let me know.

And if anyone has any project ideas that might benefit from funding through steem's crowdfunding platform I am happy to help with putting together project proposals.

I am still looking towards holding some sort of film related event in the region - probably in Bristol. Anyone interested?

The North

@cryptocurator is researching crypto related events in the region.

I believe there might be some local mini-meetups happening in the region...?

Targeting niche communities

@raj808 is considering ideas for working with creative writing groups and courses in universities.

I wonder if there are other niche communities we could target...?

A buddy system

A suggestion has been made that we should develop a 'UK Steem Buddy System' or mentoring to help onboarding and improve retention. Anyone interested in helping with this>

@ura-soul is also working on improving the signup and onboarding process.

Meetup Recording

The full recording of the first UK Steem Virtual Meetup is available if you missed it...

Steemians in the UK - currently 130

These are all the active steemians currently identified in the UK. If you know anyone else that should be added please post in the comments or message me on Discord (@Pennsif#9921).

The suggestion has also been made to include expats. That works for me - any expats that would like to be added?

Expats (?)

Are you a Brit living abroad that would still like to lend your support to developing Steem in the UK?

I think we had a really good UK presence @ SF3. At least a 5 -1 German to UK ratio!

I'm sitting in my local having a come down pint...

I figure it's only a matter if time til someone recognises the T shirt.. it was the only clean one I had left this am..

I would be interested in a mini-meet-up - just to meet other people active in the midlands/UK. I'd also like it if we had a UK account that we could all delegate some SP to and which could give a nice upvote when we post, similar to the community accounts in Japan and Germany and I'm sure other places.

Hi @shanibeer, hope you had a good time at SF3.

Hopefully some mini-meetups around the Midlands will pop up.

I have just by chance set up an account for voting UK posts @steemclub-uk. I will be putting some delegation on it later today to get it going.

Ah, I thought you might have an idea like @steemclub-uk :) Let us know how we can help.
Steemfest was good, great to meet many people and share ideas. I specially liked @slobberchops return on investment approach. I was there with a specific purpose on behalf of 27 London based charities, which we achieved. We made some great connections that will help us move forward. We also have a steem convert (the colleague who came with me) :)

I'll check out each and every one of those.
Many thanks.

Hi, great work putting this together
Just what I needed
I'm in the north (Halifax), am a sci fi writer, and am interested in the 'Steem Buddy System' &mentoring to help onboarding
Have felt my way round bit by bit, but noticed people who've joined since I did doing well because they've built up contacts before posting
Looking forward to contributing to your Steem UK initiative
