Our Hive Introduction <3

in GEMSlast month

Hello everyone!

As the text on the profile says, we are just two travelers, a girl and a boy, stuck somewhere in Europe.

Stuck, because we feel that all our liberties and rights have been striped away by the political and economical decisions that the most powerful governments took, driven by who knows what and whom. Officially all well hidden under the "Covid threat"

We've been searching for a platform to share our thoughts, observations and points of view and think Hive is a proper one.

As we intend to touch sensitive matter as culture, languages, politics, economics, sex, religion, races, etc. we prefer to stay anonymous for the time being, as long as this is even possible in the era of Internet when everything is so connected and public. So please don't ask us where we live, when and where we were born, how old are we, how do we look, etc. By the way, we look great! 🤣

Let's just tell you we both have Master degrees, we are decent speakers in English, German, French, Italian, Bulgarian and Russian and have basic knowledge of few other languages. We traveled in the most of the European countries and lived in few of them. We think we are persons with wide range of interests and hobbies.

We will be sharing only our personal points of view, positive or negative. They could and will be controversial at some point.

We hope the big and colorful Hive community will support our endeavor!

We started here by buying and powering up a small but symbolic amount of HIVE - 77.7 😀

This isn't a strictly commercial project of us - our intention is all our posts to be created as 100% power ups and we will search for and support in return content here, that we find good.

Hope that all this makes sense!

All the best to you!

We are posing our intro post in the GEMS community, @hive-148441, as it seems the most popular, thank you!

Welcome to Hive!

As @lovesniper mentioned, I am moderator of the Liberty & Freedom community, but I spend most of my time interacting with folks in the Proof of Brain tribe (POB), where all things related to Liberty & Freedom are also welcomed, espoused, and discussed. Feel free to check out the POB discord server.

Also, I teach entrepreneurship at Oklahoma State University. Some students in one of my classes have recently launched a project to help newcomers get their best creative content recognized and upvoted. The project is called Proof of Blind.

I will update this reply shortly with a link to the project's latest "Request for Submissions" post.

Thank you for your kind invitation! We've joined the L&F community, and this project of yours, PoB looks interesting and promising. Looking forward for more info!

Hello @culturelanguage! This is @traciyork from the @ocd (Original Content Decentralized) curation team. We noticed you shared your first post here on Hive and introduced yourself to the community - congratulations and welcome! So, where do you live and what do you look like... rereads post oh, sorry - never mind! 🤣

Speaking of community, we have many different ones here on the blockchain, devoted to all kinds of interests. Here's a link so you can check them all out - Hive Communities. Yes, the GEMS community is popular, and I think you'll also enjoy checking these out as well -

Liberty & Freedom (a bit quiet at the moment, but I know the mod @trostparadox is very active in a number of Hive communities & initiatives).

Proof of Brain


Also, as Hive can sometimes be quite confusing, the newly launched Newbies Guide is a growing repository of useful and easy to understand posts about how the Hive ecosystem works. For instance, there's a post in the collection called 3 things Newbies should do in their first week on Hive that you might find helpful (you've already got the powering up covered, and you can skip the "verify identity" bit...😉😆 ).

Please be aware that Hive is a bit different from other social media platforms since you are monetizing your blog, so it is important not to include content that you don't own without sources (and it shouldn't exceed 50% of the post). For more information, check this post - Why and How People Abuse and Plagiarise by hivewatchers.

If you have questions, feel free to hop into the OCD Discord server and we'll do our best to answer them, and again welcome to Hive!

Thank you, Traci (@traciyork)! for all this useful stuff! In fact, the protection from abusers, spammers and plagiarist is what made us decide to share our thoughts here.

Welcome! I also love to travel around Europe with my camera!
Have a nice stay here, looking forward for your posts!

Thank you! I hope we find more friends and supporters here! 🤠
