Invitation to enter the Hi from Hive Contest

Last year I started the Hi From Hive initiative.

This is a freewrite for you to talk about whatever you like regarding your Hive experience and journey, and pin it on the Hi From Hive map. So far, 55 users around the world have made a Hi From Hive post. If you click on the map below, it will take you to a real time version and you can see who these people are, where they're located and read their story.

The idea behind the Hive From Hive map is that we can share it on social media or whenever we tell people about Hive. Maybe those people are interested to see who's from their country or even home city. They can click on any pin on the map, and it will take them to that Hiver's post. They can see for themselves what Hivers say about Hive (good things I hope!!) and maybe they will decide to join Hive as well. I mean where else, and how else can you see so many Hive testimonials in one place? How cool is that!!!

During the past year, many new users have joined Hive and I thought this would be a good opportunity for them to share their experience. In fact, if you have been on Hive for a long time and still not done a Hi from Hive post yet, you are welcome to do one as well. Actually, everyone is welcome!!!!! That's why I am hosting this


The contest rules are very simple, and all of them are mandatory:

  1. Write about your journey and experience on Hive. It's your story, the relationship between you and Hive, Make it personal and unique and special. Don't tell us what Hive is, or what dapps or projects there are unless you developed it and it's part of your Hive experience. The Hi from Hive post is not about shilling Hive. It's about sharing your experience and journey on Hive
  2. You must post from the Hi from Hive Community
  3. You must use the hifromhive tag
  4. You can post in dual or multi language but one of them must be in English
  5. One entry per person. If you have made a Hi From Hive post in the past and have new experience to share, you are welcome to join the contest as well
  6. Pin it on Pinmapple
  • Go to the Pinmapple website
  • Click on Get Code at the top
  • Enter your location in the Search for a location box, Or you can zoom in the map to find your location. For security reasons, don't search for your home address. Search for a landmark in your town/city/county/state and click on it.
  • You will now see a pin on the map and a bit of code at the bottom of the screen that looks like [//]:# (!pinmapple 26.517100 lat -38.060485 long d3scr)
  • Copy and paste that entire code from the Pinmapple website onto your post. Every code is unique as it represents your own place, so make sure you use the above method to get your own. Don't copy someone else's.

Please make sure you follow all the above rules otherwise your entry will not be valid.


The prize pool with be 20 HBD plus 50% of this post payout, and will be split as follows:

First prize - 40%
Second prize - 25%
Third prize - 15%
Four honourable mentions - 5% each

OCD have kindly agreed to support good quality entries to this contest, so make sure you put your best work forward!!!

The contest will close 7 days from now when this post reaches payout.

You can find out more about the Hi from Hive initiative from this announcement post

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my experience on Hive. It had been a tough one through but it all later ended with a smile on the face.

Here is my entry:

I am very happy to be able to participate in this contest. I wish luck, success, and blessings to all contestants! Here is [my entry]( hello-since-hive-what-does-hive-mean-to-you)

Seems like such a fun challenge!

Okay, I entered and wrote an article about it. I think I also tagged myself correctly on the Pinmapple... :D

Thank you for hosting, please have a !PIZZA and some !LUV

Thanks for this call, it is always a pleasure to talk about Hive and how I am doing on the platform. Regards.😊

Without a doubt this was a great idea. I really enjoyed expressing my gratitude to this great community. Here is my entry ♥

This is my participation for Hello from Hive, a little late but for sure!
Success to all!

Hi today it's the 12th and here is my promised entry ;-) I was not sure should I also post it here? Hope I did the entry to the pinmapple in the right way, never did bevore :-)

Hello @livinguktaiwan I'm Here with my entry, I really Forget mention you on my post. But we're Here to bring it!

Here My hi from Hive contest 😘💕

That's awesome! I entered, I'll edit this comment once my post schedule goes live. Love the grouping on Pinmapple Hi from Hive is great!

Here’s my entry!

Hello. Thank you for this beautiful contest initiative.

Hi there,
here is my entry for the HI FROM HIVE contest.
I hope, you enjoy.

Here is my entry, I just hope I am not late to comment,

Wow. I love this initiative. I'm a Hive newbie, and it seems I just missed this contest. Looking forward to many more initiatives from you.

The contest is still ongoing, it will finish on Friday, you still have time to enter!

I'm a bit late, sorry. But I'm here now to say thank you and congratulations to the other winners!

wow, it was a challenge to guess. Congratulations to those who got it right. I love your initiative and I will present it. Thanks.

Thanks for organizing this great contest, I entered😍😄

congratulations to the winners 😍😍😍

Oh no! 3 days left! Need to make my entry now. This is such a cool way of knowing more people who are in Hive in my area. Great initiative @livinguktaiwan!

Wow this is a great contest that I'm going to enjoy, not only posting my story, but reading many, many others.

I'm already going to promote it in our community, I'm sure many "Ruteros" will join in.

Fantastic!!! Go get them on the Hi from Hive map and share their experience.!!! Personally I think can be a great onboarding tool to show people the breadth of Hive users around the world, and people get to easily read a lot of personal testimonials of Hive.

Yes, it is. I think it's one of the best ideas 😍

Congrats to the winners.

I have been thinking today about this .. when you will reveal the information how tall Baby Yoda is 😁 . So, it was 12... Congratulations to the winners ✨✨✨

I always do it after post payout, and sometimes even later, as I'm so hopeless and forget😅

bruh i wasn't even close haha. Congrats to the winners :)

It's quite difficult to guage tbh, but it's all about having fun. Wanna enter the Hi from Hive contest and share your Hive experience and journey? 😀

sure thing. Is there a post I need to read to know what to do, or does this one explain everything?

All the contest rules are in the post above, but the post you've linked gives a bit more background behind what I'm trying to achieve with Hi from Hive. Optional read. But basically, its a freewrite about how you feel about Hive since you joined, what changes it made to your life, the good and bad experience etc.

You fooled me I thought I had won. 😭😭 @livinguktaiwan

Don't ever do that to me again, I almost didn't sleep from the emotion.

Congratulations to all the winners, see you in the next contest.

Sure, see you there!!

How interesting is this, without a doubt I will participate and tell my experience in Hive ❤️.

That's great Laura, look forward to it. It's always interested in to read how hive has impacted people's lives

Yay! A 3-peat! What a great way to start the day! Thanks @livinguktaiwan. That was fun. Congratulations to all the winners! Looking forward to the next one👏👏👏

I will try to whip up something for the Hi From Hive. It looks more like a sequel to the introduceyourself post 😊

Well done @gems.and.cookies , the pressure bis on for 4-peat😉

Yes, that's a good way of looking at Hi From Hive as a more advanced version of an introduction post, and anyone can write about it regardless of how long they've been around. Look forward to heai your experience

Submitted my entry already to Hi From Hive. Hope you like it 🙂

Greetings, congratulations to the winners, and thanks for the invitation.

You're welcome, hopefully will see your entry

@hepziba, @iskafan check this out

Thank you @livinguktaiwan. I joined it!

Thanks @dodovietnam , time to put Team VM on the Hi from Hibw maoo, @trangbaby must be getting a bit lonely there on her own.

Thank you for the mention @livinguktaiwan. Having more friends join Hive has motivated me a lot. Other Vn members and I will absolutely participate in the contest ❤️

It's great that you host the contest again because I'm sure I'll get to read some amazing articles again :)

Also thanks so much for the win! It's been a while since I last won something 🤣

You're welcome Gabby! It's always nice to win something, even if it's something small, makes you feel like this world hasni forgotten about you.

Absolutely 🤗

And happy (belated?) birthday!!

My birthday was on 1st September but I only got time to write about this now, so it's ok 😀
Thank you so much! ❤️

Congratulations to the clever winners, I was way out! I've been meaning to participate in your Hi from Hive initiative, will be so interesting to see where fellow Hiveans come from!

Yes, you guys need to get Team South Africa on the map!! You're the only person on it at the moment. If you have more experience to share, and I know you've taken your Hive journey to the next level this year, would love to see your entry

Rats. If only I had a Mac I'd have gotten the answer right.
Congrats to the winners.

No worries, it's the taking part that's fun.

Fancy doing the Hi from Hive contest? I noticed your blog content now is very different from before, would be interested to read about your Hive journey and experience

I might give it a go. I have a bit less time to post these days but I've been trying to maintain a Hive schedule and Hi from Hive is a good idea so I'll try to make a point of writing a post.

Wow :-) yiiipiiee :-) congratulations to all the other winners and thank you for this contest.
Hi from hive sounds intersting, never used pinmapple but I look for it.

Greetings to the little Baby Yoda :-)

Well done to sticking to your answer, I was so worried you might change it!

Hi From Hive would be perfect for you to share your thoughts on what you think about Hive since you joined. Why not give it a go

Yoda whispered the twelfe to choose you have to me 😀 to be honest I love 12 and dont like 11 or 13. Dont ask me why 🙄

I habe my 2 month hive birthday on Okt 12 and thought this is good to combine it with Hi hive posting :-) oh. Again the 12 🤔

12 is good, 12 zodiac signs, 12 months in a year, 12 markings on a clock face, 12 zodiac animals in the Lunar calender, of course if Hive moons to USD12, that will be even perfect!!!

Look forward to your entry!

Nice initiative dear

My pleasure dear

Hi @livinguktaiwan! This is a nice contest. will have the opportunity to read other people's experiences, I think I will learn a lot from other people's writings. Thanks so much!

Why not share your own experience as well 😀 ? Two months may not be a long time, but it's still valuable experience

thanks for your suggestion, but i'm not sure i can join. My experiences are too few. I feel like I'm not doing well. I'm trying to learn more and will share my experiences in the future.

I feel like I'm not doing well. I'm trying to learn more

You can even talk about this, why you think you're not doing well, what support or information do you think is lacking for newbies, what you'd like to learn and how you think you can improve etc. It doesn't have to be all about good experience.

But if you don't think you're ready, that's fine. The initiative is always there, you can write about your experience whenever your ready, no rush. I just thought I'll do this contest to give the initiative a little boost

Thank @livinguktaiwan for your suggestions. I will join this contest because I think I should do it. Thanks for your encouragement again.

3 points away from the mark. Similar experience with a different thing yesterday. Haha

You can always have a stab at the Hi from Hive contest, always interested to read about people's experience on Hive.....

It is a nice initiative I will try to collaborate with some post of my travels in Europe and South America.

You always curate the contents of Haveyoubeenhere?


Although the Hi from Hive map uses Pinmapple, this contest has got nothing to do with travel. It is about you sharing you experience on Hive, what it means to you, how has it changed your life, what have you learnt, gained, lost , contributed etc. Imagine you are trying to get a friend on board, how would you describe your Hive experience and journey to them?

Love it. I'll be making a few posts this week and I'll try to post on hi from hive too!

Thanks @eroche, would be interested to hear from old timers as well. Culture Vulture was a very successful initiative back in the old days, you were way ahead in organising this type of stuff, I'm sure your journey would make a very interesting read.

This is really a cool contest.

Interested to share your Hive journey so far?

Yeah sure, is there a time limit?

The contest closes at this post payout, but this initiative is always open, you can make a Hi From Hive post whenever you like

Is it mandatory to post personal pictures? Haven’t taken a personal picture in a while

you can remain anonymous if you want, many do that on Hive. In terms of pinning your location on the Hi From Hive map, you can do city, state, country, whatever level you want. It just helps so people understand more about the author and their experience as it can vary. Plus the location can show the breadth of Hive users around the world, which I think is very fascinating

Alright then, I will be dropping mine soon

Thanks. I sort of think 10.8 would be a bit off.

It's very precise!!!

Hope you're doing well, as can be!

Precisely off. 😎
Trying to get back into normal life mode more and more

Should have known that yoda is smoll :(

smoll and cute 🙃

Wow it's a very lovely idea, you can know your fellow hiver around you nice.

yes, you never know, there may be other people who live nearby or in the same state

Count with me on this!

great stuff!! look forward to it!!

Thank you @livinguktaiwan for this contest. I've written a couples of my experience on my first week and second week about Hive but didn't know where to post. So I ended up posting them on OCD community. This is the one that I've been looking for. Just in time when I am actually ready to share my experience about Hive.

All the contest rules and instructions including where to post can be found in this post

Awesome. thank you so much. Enjoy your weekend.

Oh dear, the silver hairs are really playing up. I went and wrote a whole new Hi from Hive (a new take and a little extra) and then realized I'd already written one exactly a year ago, so my post is not to be considered for a prize of course, but I loved sharing my passion for Hive that's actually become an addiction!

No worries @lizelle as long as it's new content. I know said it was supposed to be a one off post for everyone when I launched it a year ago, that was to prevent spam on the map, but if experiences changes over time, that would warrant an update!

That feeling you get when a song's stuck in your head and you can't think who sings it. I'm like that trying to figure out how Pinmapple knows the difference between testimonial and travel.

Who sings that song?

Try singing the song out loud to see if we can help you....

nice post! i like it :=)

I don't think you do and spammy bots are shit for the blockchain developer of this shitbot.

Trataré de participar

Wow, I am just finding out about this contest because I have been without internet connection. It's always so nice to talk about our Hive experience, there are never enough words to express the love towards this platform. Thank you @livinguktaiwan
