Community Challenge: Name Your 2021 Hive Highlight!

image.png

As 2022 is approaching it's a good time to reflect back on 2021 and consider what has been accomplished by all of us, both cumulatively in our Hive ecosystem and individually as Hive community members. To celebrate the achievements and moments worth celebrating in a year that's not without it's difficulties, I propose a challenge.

The challenge works like this:

  1. Write a blog post about your one main 2021 Hive Highlight
  2. Tag it with #hivehighlight
  3. Link your post in the comments below

There is no monetary prize for this challenge but ... a curated selection of highlights (or even all of them, depending on the number of submissions received) will end up being featured in the @hiveio's list of Hive Highlights 2021!

You may write about a contribution, a great day, an achievement, a new friend you met, your favorite purchase, an awesome trade, or anything else that's been a highlight in your year as long as it's Hive related.

Submissions are due a week from now, December 27th.

Good luck but before you start ...

Some ground rules:

  • Your Hive Highlight must be somehow Hive related
  • Your highlight should be positive in nature
  • Everyone can participate once
  • Posts can be in any language
  • Link back to this post from your post so others know to participate
  • Posts should be safe for all ages
  • Keep in mind that the writers of @hiveio will have to paraphrase your highlight, make it clear

My Hive Highlight

Out of all the significant milestones that were reached, the one highlight that comes to mind right away is the day that the Hiveblocks Twitter account finally reached 30k followers. It's a personal goal I set months prior but as the days went on and after our ads long ended I started to give up on it, despite our partnerships and collaborations. Then we had the pump happen (which I believe is the result of traders finally acknowledging Hive as a stable investment) and our Twitter numbers began to move.

Then on December 8th, at 2:35 AM we hit that mark. I was watching that countdown. It hung at 29,998 for a long time. And then it finally happened. Every small milestone like that adds up and in the new year I'm hoping to re-submit for the blue checkmark and get it for Hive. That would probably be the next year's highlight for me if that happens.

Hive is all about working on something greater than ourselves and developing ourselves while we develop the ecosystem. I didn't know my way around Twitter all that well before Hive and my experience with it was predominantly getting banned after a while. It's an interesting skill. Not a major one but the opportunity for continuous learning is one 'side effect' of investing in decentralization.

In my humble opinion, it's no longer what skills are important in our narrow immediate surroundings but what's important in the whole world. Communication is important. Technology and social media, even if the tools we must use for now are centralized, are important. By understanding them and what there is already we can look beyond and envision that which doesn't yet exist. And, in time, maybe as someone's highlight in subsequent years, we can build it.

Anyways, not trying to distract you. Good luck to everyone.
