It's my hobby
I've seen people post this a lot of my feed. This sort of reminds me of those chain bulletins on Myspace (and earlier days of Facebook). Still, there is amusement for participating in it. For one, you provide some extra information, which may or may not be interesting. On the other hand, it's great filler content for those who may not have any idea of what to write for the day.
How long have you been on the Blockchain?
Let's see, this account came to be around March 2, 2018. Unfortunately, I went for the free account creation service back on the old chain at the time. Some say the @Leonis account is me. It most likely is, I wish I could remember.
What was your background in cryptocurrency when you first came to the Blockchain?
Believe it or not, I have been a Coinbase customer since its early days in 2012. You'd think that makes me an OG, but that's far from the truth. I was some dumb college kid who didn't know what him and his friends stumbled upon.
I reentered crypto space in the latter half of 2017 after profiting from the 2013 BTC bull run. I didn't do anything about crypto between that time and I regret it even today. On the bright side, no student debt here thanks to some extra boost from crypto.
What was your background in writing when you first came to the Blockchain?
I was a hobby blogger throughout my university years. I had a blog that I retired when I graduated. I still remember I made a grand total of $10 over the course of 4 years.
How many people did you know when you first came to the Blockchain?
My referrer was @someguy123. The technical folks on Hive definitely knows him. Other than that, I knew nobody.
How did you meet people when you first came to the Blockchain?
Who did you look up to when you first came to the Blockchain?
Well, @someguy123 gave some good advice when I was navigating as a newbie. Some may find it controversial, but I did look up to @sircork when he was active on the chain. @Lynds was very helpful when I first started out as well.
How would you describe your first three months on the Blockchain?
Bernie vs. Haejin
Has being a part of the Blockchain changed you in any way for the good?
It was a good pastime to get through the bear market. I am definitely better off, at least from a financial perspective, because of it. I mean, I did hobby my way into a 5-digit portfolio on Hive alone.
A counter argument would be that I did waste a ton of time by not automating certain repetitive tasks. This goes beyond autovoting. Most of it has to do with moving tokens around, etc.
What is your favorite memory from your time on the Blockchain?
I actually liked @r0nd0n's shows back when I could attend almost every one of them from start to finish. I don't often participate in the conversation, but it's always entertaining listening in. It's more realistic and sane compared to most of the mainstream nonsense out there. The added irony of a clown running the show is the icing on top.
If you could advise a new person signing up to Hive, what would it be?
Find out what interest you here. Pretending to be a content creator will lead you down an unsatisfying experience. There is so much more to Hive than a "blogging" platform.
Go play games. Find a niche community/tribe. Collect NFTs. Or, you don't have to do much and stuff HBDs in your savings and collect the interest. If you aren't enjoying your time, it's no different than doing a job you hate.
