The Hive. Shout Out Post.
The Hive Shout Out Post
I have lots of confusing thoughts on how to write this post as I begin to write it. Where to start how to word what it is I am trying to say. The best I cam up with was to just waffle on as I type and try keep the original thought in my mind as I letter forward. The best words I can think to begin this post is to express where it came from and came to materialize.
For as long as I can remember, I have heard talks about the injustice of something.
Why something should not be. It's wrong that they can get away with that. They shouldn't be able to just do that. Someone should do something about that.
I still hear those same things said today. About the same things, for the same reasons by the same and new people. These are the things we all hear each day, about politicians celebrities gone bad, Community rogue leaders, or the neighbour down the road for some reason. I was never at an opportune time to resolve any of those things. Until now that is, now I have found Steemit. I see with Steemit an opportunity to provide a benefit to everyone in the physical world. To this end, came the group, If we can work together to grow each other by use of our Discord Group The Hive we can replicate in the physical world too the same way we built the group and each other up. That is the theory anyway :). So the group is designed to make the change we want to see, Through the provision of a self-funding economy providing investment for similar self-funding projects in the physical world. To try make a change.

It is an ambitious goal from the small seed we have began to nurture. Which will bring me to the first Shout Out, @simplymike is as much a reason this group formed as any other. I was at the cash out my chips point, I will never be able make a go of this. The growth is too slow, All the negative things people see at times in Steemit, The bots people just buying votes, some getting flagged for using a bot. How can I compete with a picture of a flower gets paid $40 and I put hours into a post and get nothing. I had seen picture's that appeared to have been cropped from online somewhere and gaining massive rewards. It appeared so much investment would be needed for a chance of anything to happen. @simplymike happen-stance upon one of my posts and a spark of this can work flashed. Lights began to burn and the Steemit platform began to look like a brighter place.
@simplymike Brought me over to the #Newbieresteemday group in Discord https://discord.gg/AbXu5QD I got to advertise my posts. Some people came and voted on my posts. I got resteemed, My rewards did not jump to the $40 mark they still do not. But they did increase. I was actually making money sharing my opinion and talking with others, O.K. it was only pennies but it was profit in a manner. Somewhere, between meeting @simplymike and joining the #newbieresteemday group I came across @davemccoy Inspirational fellow, if i was twice the person I am I would not be half of the good deeds I have seen him do. My first comment to @davemccoy I think was, "I'm gonna keep an eye on you, you are one to watch" or something very similar. I was right and just recently he showed up with the @dustsweeper . If you are a newbie, You need to check out this profile on Steemit @dustsweeper
Dustsweeper is like a vote topper upper. If your comment or post has been voted on and remains below the payout threshold on day 6, the @dustsweeper will vote on you to bring it to a payout level
3 other groups I enjoyed were #IFC or #InformationFindingChampionship @asapers and The Crypto Empire Discord group These groups are run by @apolymask for the IFC, @insideoutlet @shai-hulud and @lynncoyle1 for ASAPers, @spiritualmax for The Crypto Empire.
Each group has their own Discord group and each group works under different guidelines. Please be sure to read pinned messages to gain an understanding of how each group works.

Each group proved to be very beneficial to myself both in increased rewards I gained from Steemit and the knowledge I learn from talking with the members, The smiles shared are the bonus, and I have developed some friendships in those groups I would like to see grow and survive too.
The group is made up at the start from members from those 4 groups. These people were the group will grow from and has already began to grow from. Our membership doubled at the present time with more arrivals expected. I guess the shoulders we will all walk upon in the group are:
@jbreheny @leighleigh @lynncoyle1 @simplymike @warpedpoetic @youhavewings @underground
These members have shared their vote kindly to begin growing the groups strength. More of us gain from their generosity of a vote than we will give back to them. It is that generosity of spirit I would like to emulate through the group. Be it through delegation or membership, the sharing of votes information or just general chat. The group would not exist without all of the above. Without them we would not have the ingredients to begin cooking up this potion of togetherness.
So that's the why of the group how it came to be formed in Steemit and who held an influence in the decisions to make the group in one manner or another.
A Shoutout again to @charisma777 who has given up countless time to generate our new logo's banners and tags for the comments. Also providing tremendous moral support in the background no one will ever see. Thank you @charisma777
I would also like to welcome all the new members we have gained over the week and welcome you all to the group. Your opinion on anything and everything is valued, I hope we can work together and assist each other and all members grow together.
