4 years on Hive

in #hive3 months ago

Hello,

4 years ago today, I opened the account on this blockchain. I can remember exactly when I did it and why. It was a cold November day and I was looking for a way to make money.

The day before I was fired, along with many others, because the company where I was went on savings mode. And I thought I was getting a raise for the results, me and my naivete.

After going to the employment office, I sat down in front of the laptop and started looking for jobs. After 2-3 hours I was full and switched looking for other ways to earn money. That's how I found Steem and signed up for it. Until the activation came, I read the posts on Trending and wondered how much money can be made with such an article.

Long story short, now, after 4 years I can say that my life has changed a lot. Those 4 years have passed so quickly. Fortunately, I got to know many of you. I learned a lot and I was able to take something with me from almost everyone I met.

Even now, when I'm on the road, I get in touch with the people I have met here. Unfortunately, because of Covid-19, these meetings have become less frequent.

What can I say? I'm glad to be here and I'm excited about the future, which will hopefully be good for us all!

Until next time!

Hallo,

heute vor 4 Jahren habe ich auf dieser Blockchain ein Konto eröffnet. Ich kann mich genau ins Detail erinnern wann ich es gemacht habe und wieso. Es war ein kaltes November Tag und ich suchte nach einer Möglichkeit Geld zu verdienen.

Ein Tag vor wurde ich gekündigt, mit vielen anderen, weil das Unternehmen wo ich war auf Sparkurs gegangen ist. Und ich dachte ich bekomme ein Gehaltserhöhung für die Ergebnisse, ich und meine Naivität.

Nach dem ich bei Arbeitsamt gewesen bin, habe ich mich vor dem Laptop gesetzt und habe angefangen Stellen zu suchen. Nach 2-3 Stunden war ich satt und dann habe nach andere Möglichkeiten gesucht Geld zu verdienen. So habe ich Steem gefunden und mich angemeldet. Bis die Freischaltung gekommen ist, habe ich die Posts auf Trending gelesen und mich gewundert wie viel Geld mit so einem Artikel machen können.

Nach 4 Jahren kann ich sagen, dass mein Leben sich stark geändert hat. Diese 4 Jahre sind so schnell vergangen. Zum Glück konnte ich viele von euch kennenlernen. Ich habe vieles gelernt und fast von jedem den ich getroffen habe, konnte ich etwas mitnehmen.

Auch jetzt, wenn ich unterwegs bin, melde ich mich bei den Leuten die ich hier getroffen habe. Leider, wegen Covid-19 sind diese Treffen seltener geworden.

Was kann ich sagen? Bin froh hier zu sein und bin gespannt auf die Zukunft, die hoffentlich gut für uns alle sein wird!

Bis demnächst!

< heute vor 4 Jahren habe ich auf dieser Blockchain ein Konto eröffnet. Ich kann mich genau ins Detail erinnern wann ich es gemacht habe und wieso

also auf der Hive Blockchain konntest Du dich bestimmt vor 4 Jahren nicht anmelden ;-)

War wohl eher auf Steem!

Aber egal Hauptsache du bist noch da!

!BEER und !invest_vote

Ja, es ist theoretisch die selbe Blockchain. Mit dem Hardfork hat man es in zwei geteilt, aber der gemeinsame Start war Steem, wie auch diese Blockchain früher benannt worden ist.

Hoffentlich alles gut bei dir und auch bei deinem Sohn.

Danke für die Upvotes!

I wonder why I was not following you, anyways - corrected :)
Congrats for the 4 years here, I find it important not only for someone to land here but also to have the ability and persist/insist/stay/be educated and further educate other users.
Thanks for being a part of the community!
Alles Gute!

Because I'm a natural born shit-poster. :)

Thank you! Grit and patience is most of the time rewarding.

Also thank you for the good interviews and posts!

Herzlichen Glückwunsch, alter Weggefährte! ;-)

Wow man! 4 Years already...time passes really fast. Congratulations!
@tipu curate

Thank you! You are also not that far. As I can see the 22nd of June 2017 was your blockchain birthday :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yep, but you catched the best moment

For me it was good, as it helped a lot to build confidence. 2016 was a rough year, 2017 a great year :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Happy 4 years. Time passes really quick because we are spending more time here and have the same 24 hours.

Thank you @ace108! I remember that we have been doing photos with the same phone model at the start of my journey, the Samsung Galaxy S6 (Edge). I'm still using the same phone :)

I sort of took over my wife S8+ and then last year I sort of had to buy a new S10+ because I was going to an important reception.

Congratulations!
By the way, how much were people on trending earning back then?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I've seen some with hundreds. There have been some real famous authors, like the real @neilstrauss, but also some real ripoffs. It was interesting to see.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Few hundreds... sounds nice. Maybe we'll have that on leo as well. Not like i'm expecting to be earning that much on a post though...

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

There have been some make-up tutorials with thousands :)))

I think we will not, as price will raise, more will come and the reward pool will diminish. That will be good for us, hodlers, as the value will increase.

Good point.

Congratulations and thanks!

To explain the thanks ...

I entered in Steemit in the middle of 2017. I think you understand what was in my soul, I saw posts that were paid with tens and hundreds of dollars and if I received more than ten cents it was a holiday for me. I worked hard to write well, without mistakes and to make blogs as visually attractive as possible, with more than 300 words, as I understood that it was good. In vain, the visibility was very low. I was tempted to give up (I took a break for a few months).
With the help of a few, I got through the hard times. One of the supports came from you, but you can't remember, of course.

I think you initiated a challenge in which to post every day for a month. I participated, it helped me organize myself, look for topics and write better. But what helped me the most was that I received an automatic vote from you for a year!

It was one of the reasons I continued in Steemit then, one of the reasons I am in Hive, LeoFinance now.

For this I thank you and I am glad that I now have the opportunity to say it!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I remember the talks we had. I was participating in a challenge done by @dragosroua, who encourage people to write for 30 days. The challenge has repeated a couple of times, sometimes with daily topics or other different gimmicks.
Ohh..the autovoter got messed up with the migration. Need to check it.

@dragosroua, come back to writing, please. You had some pretty good tips in the past.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes, that's right, you remembered right. Yes, @dragosroua initiated that challenge and thanks to you I remember that the topics were given by him. I also support the call to @dragosroua, I learned a lot from his posts.

Thanks for the nudge, I will consider this @bluemoon :)

I'm glad to hear that!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

He he, thanks for the nudge, @alexvan, I might :)

You should, need some motivation from a little more experienced guy who can run 100km in one day, to move my fat belly to do a round of the park near by.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Well, motivation can take you just to a certain point, beyond that you need good ol' boring discipline. As for running 100km, my best time is 12.5 hours for that distance. But yes, I'm going to start posting more often now, not only about running.

Good, you had some very fine gems presented in the past, even the community idea, long before it was announced and brought to live.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Wow 4 years you're a true OG! Salute to that!!

I'm old, I know,I know. I feel it every morning getting out of bed. :)
