I was triggered to create this post by a blog I read from @themarkymark I read today. The titel was: "How did you get here and why are you still here?".
Registering on Hive
I've been playing around with crypto's on exchanges for quite some years. I had registered an account on Steem years ago, but never used it really since I didn't really had interesting stuff to blog about.
I was actually a bit fed up with crypto since I'm a terrible trader and my couple hundred dollars of 'playing money' only got less and less.
Then in august 2020 I accidentally found a great article on Publish0x. I browsed some more articles and saw there were more subjects being discussed there as well. I saw authors were earning money for their blogs and I remembered that I still had a Steem account and decided to check out what had become of Steem.
I saw an overload of blogs written in Chinese, so I decided to look for alternatives. And then I found Hive.
First I found the Hive.Blog interface and discovered numerous communities. Since I am an amateur photographer I thought Hive could be a good platform to share my photographs. And to it began.... only 7 moths ago.
My first blog with some bird photos got 123 votes and earned 2.76 Hive. Which was around $0.50 at the moment. I was really excited about earning money with my photos, so I decided to stay.
Why am I still here?
I'm still here because Hive is one big playground. I still frequently post my photos in the #pictureaday community and follow a lot of other great photographers.
But apart from photography I found a lot of other interesting things on Hive. The Leofinance community relighted my interest in crypto. This encouraged me to invest the leftovers of my crypto history in this project.
And I keep finding interesting things on Hive. I'm playing some Hive games like Cryptobrewmaster and dCity and also made my first steps in DeFi because I received some free CUB for my staked Leo tokens.
And I've also found some projects on other blockchains. I'm playing Alien Worlds and Sorare Fantasy Football and also created a Micro blogging account on Noise Cash (https://noise.cash/u/FriendlyMoose) where I have over 750 followers already and post a lot of photographs.
And there is still more to come. With #projectblank Hive soon will get a new microblogging app and so are many other interesting projects.
For me Hive is a big playground and instead of having to pay an entrance fee, I'm being paid to play here.
I'm crypto and security enthousiast with a passion for photography that likes to play games.
