I joined Steemit in July 2016 and was very excited about the concept and the potential of the platform. I arranged a few Steemit Saturday events which were very successful and made some great friends.

I haven't written a blog post for more than two years as at the time I was very disappointed with the direction which Steemit moved at that point in time. I therefor left the crypto sphere and was not really involved in Crypto for the two years if not more.
When I woke up this morning and started reading a few of the older posts on the Steemit and to put it lightly I realised that everything changed in the Crypto Social Media blogging world.
I found the following by Luke Stokes which gave a detailed rundown on the history of how Hive was born as a result of a lot issues on the Steemit platform:
How Steem became Hive
Thanks so much to Luke for detailing the events.
A few questions from my side:
- Is Hive the new place where all the old guys migrated to?
- What is the difference between Hive and Peakd?
- Are there more platforms like Hive and Peakd?
- What is the suggested platform where most of the old Steemit users are writing
- How does communities work and which communities are the best to join?
I really want to start blogging again and make some new friends as I always did. Hope to hear from you all that is still blogging away.
I see a lot of the old Steemit Witnesses are now on Hive: @roelandp, @smooth, @pharesim, @riverhead, @ausitbank, @blocktrades. Hi to all you guys and apologies if I missed anyone out. Please give some comments on your experience with Hive. Is this the place to be? Is @donkeypong still around?
