Introductory post on Hive

in OCD3 months ago

After so much considerations of whether to be on Hive or not, I finally summoned the courage with the help of @vickoly and @flourishandflora to be among the great elites here on hive. I hope my stay is welcomed.


I am Tolani Olanrewaju, from Lagos state, Nigeria. I can say I’m so many things, but to mention a few, I’m a practicing professional teacher and an accountant with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting Education, a professional business administrator with a professional Master’s degree in Business Administration, and also a Master’s degree holder in Business Education. All my life has been about academics and research, in totality, I can brag about myself as being a scholar, because it takes many years of hard work and sacrifices to become academically great.


Asides my professional background. I am a self-motivated person with varying talents. I’ll love to say that I’m a fantastic song writer and singer, a story writer and a freelance writer.

I have been writing for a few years back, but launched TOLANI OLANREWAJU’S BLOG in the year 2020 where I write and post captivating stories and articles, also welcome peoples stories and articles on my blog, I hope to go into more freelance writing so I can always share my opinion, experience and expertise to the world.


At this junction, I will like to reference and say a very big thank you to a colleague of mine @vickoly Who introduced me to the Hive Community, a platform where I will be getting in touch with different influencers, so if you’ll be seeing a new face, that’s me. On this platform, I hope to create some interesting content, and before this introduction, I researched on the Hive Community and found out it is a form of decentralized network where I can have the opportunity to distribute my information and where I can also get informed with other people's write up, and I am more than willing to explore all the benefits that comes with it.

Not to bore you with too much seriousness and as well to round up with, I am a lover of entertainment (lover of movies and music) and sports, still an active sportsman though, even with my busy schedule, I create leisure moments for myself and use it strictly for research, entertainment and sports.

Finally, I am married to the best woman in the universe, the prettiest like I use to call her, she compliments me in everything, my better half, my sugar, mother of my two lovely kids, beautiful in and out and a queen at heart.


I’l like to alt the introduction here otherwise I will be writing an epistle, like I said in my first line of me introduction, I said I’m so many things and I really am. As I remain on this platform, I hope to make my presence felt positively. I remain my wonderful self. Tolani Olanrewaju.

Thank you all for welcoming me.

@yemmie thanks and you too

Welcome to the best web3 network ever. Have fun around here!

@godfish yeah, sure I will


Welcome to the Hive community @psalmy05!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, Keychain, Peaklock, and Hivesigner,
  3. The master password and the owner key are only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your password or keys; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. DO NOT OPEN any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hiveans available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!

@jamerussell can't thank you enough, I'll take all these to heart.

@psalmy05, @brittandjosie also, she is my other half of the @heyhaveyamet team and picks the candidates out for me.

Bienvenido a la gran familia

Welcome to hive! Sounds like you have a lot to say and will make a great fit withing the community. Have fun exploring. xox

Hello! Welcome to Hive, @psalmy05. I found you thanks to @heyhaveyamet 's introduction post.
You've come to a wonderful place where you can develop any interest you can think of. The limit is up to you!
The learning curve is steep at first, but ask any questions you have, read and observe.
Here are some resources to help you get started:
Link to The Terminal Discord server, highly recommended for learning anything about Hive and @heyhaveyamet 's home.
Link to Ecency's Discord server, my favourite frontend and where you can find me most of the time.
Link to the Ecency resource library, where I'm adding practical tutorials in Spanish and some are in English, too.
Little by little you will find the places where you feel most comfortable, get in touch with other hivers and success will come.
Greetings from Spain. 🤗

@palomap3 thank you so much. I'll go through all the links, God bless you.

Hello, @psalmy05! Welcome to Hive Blockchain! Just take your time, then create valuable content for others. :) Then, you can explore more communities that are suitable for your content and supported by OCD HERE

For tips and information as a Hive newbie, click here: newbie guide.

The important thing is Hive is a bit different from other social media platforms since you are monetizing your blog. You can't include content that you don't own without sources. For more information, check this post: Why and How People Abuse and Plagiarise.

If you have questions or concerns, you can hop into OCD's Discord server and we'll gladly answer your questions.

I'm @anggreklestari from the @OCD team.
Have a great day!

@anggreklestari. Thank you so much for this guide. I learnt so much after going through the links.

Hey Tolani! I saw you today in The Terminal discord so I did a bit of research and found your introduction post to get to know you.
You write interestingly, so I'll be on the look out for more of your posts.
Great to have you here on Hive! Enjoy~
And oh by the way, you're not wrong when you say you're married to the prettiest woman because she's indeed pretty!
