I remembered a few days ago, that it had been almost 6 years for me on the Hive Blockchain.
And yet it slipped my mind again but I can always count on @arcange & @hivebuzz to remind me of this date. So the 4th of June was my 6th Hive birthday.
6 years! Wow. Time flies!
6 Years on Hive, 3 IRL Hive fests, 1 Virtual one, and one to come...
Not bad. Not bad at all.
I remember my first intro to Hive like it was yesterday.
It wasn't so long into my crypto journey when I first read about
You could call it coincidental, if you believed in coincidence...
I had been going through a list of cryptocurrencies to see what they were about and to learn about them. When I stumbled on Hive, I was intrigued by the description.
However, I didn't really do anything with it then. I stuck it on a list 'for later'.
Well, later came rather quickly when I watched a video of the Dollar Vigilante (Jeff Berwick) only days later in which he mentioned the platform.
The funny thing was that I was a big Berwick fan, and used to watch all his videos. I had missed this one because it was about a year old when I found it!
I saw it as a sign and signed up right away.
The birthday date is my sign-up date.
It took another 10 days or so until I finally received an email stating that my account was created. I was camping with the kids and the Irish home education group, and since I hardly saw the kiddos all day, I decided to check my emails, and there it was. It was also my son's birthday.
So yeah, if this wasn't all meant to be, then I don't know what is...
Six years later, I'm still here, and even though I'm not always as active here as I'd like to be, Hive is part of my life just like my family is. In fact, my family knows that nothing is more important to me than my real life family & my Hive family.
I couldn't imagine my life without Hive & my Hive friends here.
Here is where I tell my life story, everything that happens in my life, and all the good & the bad that goes on in our lives. The struggles, the moves, the ups and downs...everything.
People have come and gone, some just disappeared without a word. And that's OK, although I sometimes think of what might have happened to them. But there are quite a few still here that I can call friends. Family even. You know who you are...😊
So I thank you all for being here with me, and also for letting me be a part of your lives too.
The next 6 years, here we come!
