My Year Journey on Steem

Hello Steem friends.

I started Steem on February 10th at the suggestion of my brother @jarvie. It has been quite a year of learning about cryptocurrency, getting to know people from all over the world and sharing myself through through pictures and words.

Here is my first post Introducing myself

What have I learned during this year on Steem?

  1. I really like competition
  2. Innovation is encouraged
  3. Recognition is nice
  4. I thrive with structure
  5. It takes time and dedication

I really like competition

Those first months on Steem and playing @photogames were the best!

I got to know so many great photographers from all over the world as we played together @alevaskye, @asgarth, @bil.prag, @caseygrimley, @derekkind, @dmytrokorol @gabyoraa, @itchyfeetdonica @jayclar30, @kieranstone @r00sj3, @scottshots, @soyrosa, @snooway, @themonkeyzuelans, @vmoldo, @yumyumseth

This is my kind of game. I love collecting and strategy and have enjoyed Steemmonsters.

7 World's Continent Photo Challenge

As a landscape photographer I have lot of landscape pictures and so in August I started participating regularly in @czechglobalhosts World's Continent Photo Challenge...mainly the North America Challenge. I don't think I will ever win. It is ok since I have love taking and sharing my landscape pictures!

Innovation is encouraged

Push myself

I have learned that to make great content I need to push myself to do things I have never done, like shot lighting shots!


In June @jarvie, @asgarth and @dmytrokorol got together and made the wonderful interface #steempeak. Thank you guys! I love how you are always working to make things better.

It takes time and dedication

I have been working to figure out how much time and attention I give to Steem, both in posting and commenting on posts.

It takes as much time to read, comment and really interact in a genuine way as it does to write interesting and authentic posts.

Finding the balance will continue to be the quest of this next year and I'm sure the whole time I am blogging on Steem.

I am so glad that I have found this awesome platform in which I can express myself, share my photography and writing and get to interact with people from all over the world in a fun and inspiring way.
