On Publishing 101 Articles on Hive — Hand To Heart, Thank You Hivers!

in #hive-1745783 months ago (edited)

Dear Hivers,

Have you ever felt truly blessed? Perhaps a day in your life where you took a deep breathe, settled, and relaxed while saying:

Boy, what a good day!

Today is one of those days for me. And I wish to thank YOU for this.

You see, I have now completed 101 articles on Hive. It took me about 4 months. That is why I thought to share my thoughts in today's post.

Before we go there, why 101? And not the 100th article?

The truth is: I missed it.

You see, I was tracking everything manually — counting them one by one. And for the last two weeks? I didn’t count. It appears the 100th article was from the Devotion series.

The title was: Never live in the fantasy of future. The article talks about living in the present reality — and not in the future.

It aligns with this post as well. In fact, I hope and wish we can carry this thought with us. Let us live in the present — and take a moment to be grateful for what we have around us.

I am grateful because my journey on Hive has been fascinating. I quit Steemit 3 years ago. I saved the keys on my desktop — and then forgot all about it.

Three years later, I was scrolling through Chinese news early in the morning where I saw Justin Sun acquired Steemit. I felt excited — and so I started tracking the progress. Then I joined Hive.

Then with my reintroduction, I decided to restart my journey. Hand to heart, I am grateful to be here every single day.

You supported me with your upvotes, comments, and encouraging words.

I remember smiling as I read every comment. My goal was always to share and learn while helping at least ONE person. It always drives me and leaves my soul fulfilled.

I must add:

The platform truly exists because of YOU. I am talking to every single person who is here trying reading, engaging, and contributing. Thank you!

We now live in a society where "me" comes first. The individual success is more important than anyone else's. There is where the collective growth mindset is fading away.

I always believe that collective growth is extremely important.

Imagine together?

We can move mountains.

The good news is: we have hundreds and thousands of stories published every single day on Hive. This is how we grow together and grow faster.

Plus, there’s so much I have seen — from artists to photos to personal stories and tutorials. Even connected to people from different countries and saw their culture.

Together, we are powerful. So my 101 is just a number. It should be added to the collective pond where we swim together.

So if we continue writing good articles, we invite thousands of people from the outside world — into ours. If we continue building new dapps — we once again invite thousands of people from outside — into ours.

Fact is: We can be in millions.

Imagine such a massive community functioning with the mission to support decentralization — and continues to cheer for Hive — that would be a dream come true. Such a dream is what I wish to be part of.

Just thinking about it is incredible.

You know, each one of us can define Hive in our own way.

That's the best part.

You see, you and I are not chained to anything.

We can define.

We can talk.

We can share.

And we can connect.

There's no stopping us. Anything on our mind can be published here. And we will always find a handful of people resonating with us.

Which is why the energy around Hive is so infectious.

In fact, for me the greatest victory was when I was talking to someone from Venezuela. His words moved me when he said Hive is putting food on their table and smiles on their face.

Then I wrote this article and discovered so many others felt incredibly grateful.

Hive truly influenced their lifestyle.

Not only does Hive take away the stress but also unlocks the creativity in us. I imagine at least some of the people have dropped bad habits after picking up Hive.

To know a platform impacting people’s live is truly breathtaking.

As mentioned earlier, we cannot live in the fantasy of future but we can certainly design a reality of tomorrow by working today, isn't it? With this thought, let us continue supplying attention to Hive. Let us continue contributing. Engaging. And connecting.

As we reach the end of this post, I wish each and everyone a much happier life, one where you engage and grow quickly, and all your wishes come true. I wish you joy and pray for your success.

I wish all of us achieve more and more. Let us grow together. Here on Hive. And in our own life. Because a wise man once told me:

You are not here for a long time. You are here for a GOOD time!

Let's all remember this — and remember this forever! :)

THANK YOU!

Cheers,
Sid

I'm pretty sure you've helped many.

101 articles! Phew, a big number indeed. So you've posted almost daily and seeing how meticulously you write and format your posts, they must have taken a lot of time. Did you ever find it hard sometimes to pick up the keyboard? Or the idea of writing seemed dreadful?

Thank you! So glad to see you here.

how meticulously you write and format your posts, they must have taken a lot of time.

YES. Easily over 500+ hours.

Did you ever find it hard sometimes to pick up the keyboard? Or the idea of writing seemed dreadful?

First part? No. That's because I enjoy the process of wrting. The second part, when the idea is not clear? I find it very difficult to continue.

I need to find the right idea. That's my primary goal. Then writing is easy. Perhaps this is why I make sure I have enough ideas in my bank — so I can skim through them everyday and then pick one based on the context.

This is also one of the reason I am starting a couple of series, so I don't have to invest heavily into new ideas. Hope this helps.

Are you stuck somewhere? Or just curious? :)

I see! A bank of ideas does seem like a viable way to go.

I was curious mostly. I mean, I do suffer from writers block like many other but I'm quite sure about the topics I will write on eventually.

Congratulations for this objetive. Greetings.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Really appreciate it.

Thank you so much. Hope you are doing great. Appreciate your mentions!

You’ve helped a whole lot of people, myself included! I’ve come to search for your account when I’m interested in learning something more about things that make my posts look better or ways to give new users tips. It’s quite true that the place we are calling our digital home is nothing without the people on it.

I wish we could get a discord type place directly connected with hive. There’s so much talking going on in discord that should be on hive but I guess that’s a goal to strive towards!

Keep it up my friend, if you need to take a break go ahead! Don’t try to burn yourself out pushing out content.

Gosh. Made my early morning. Thank you so much.

True. A couple of weeks ago, I was on Discord all day long. There is a lot that goes on there (with no filters).

Keep it up my friend, if you need to take a break go ahead! Don’t try to burn yourself out pushing out content.

Thank you! How do you take a break? You got me curious!

For me taking a break is often when I go curating content in the new section or spend time in my feed. If I need to take an engagement break altogether for a day or two I just do minimal comments but do some curation and get outside walking.

It’s funny I am a bit annoyed but I was purposely pushing out content (some pretty good posts I think, not perfect of course) so I could get the hive buzz achievement for posting every day in a week but somehow I messed it up. That’s the first time in my 2 years I posted 7 days in a row lol it was challenging not to shit post! I didn’t get it though so now I’m a bit annoyed and won’t try again for a few weeks or months.

I don’t know about your home situation but I’ve got a wife and son so there’s always something to do when I’m not on hive lol I usually am active really early in the morning when I wake up or late at night before bed. Here and there during my work day but that’s not guaranteed depending on the day. If I need a break at those times I just sleep in or go to sleep early lol.

Besides researching more things to post about do you go out for walks and stuff to get off the chain?

I congratulate you, not because you wrote 101 posts about Hive. If not because of the positive energy you put into each of them, I haven't read them all yet, but maybe I'll try. LOL

Thank you.

Haha! Wow. Love this. YES - positivty is a must. If we can think, why not think positive, right? 😁

Thanks for your support!

I truly believe your goal. Because it manifests. I always pick up something valuable when I read your posts. More power, Sid!

Love that. Thank you for your support. Hope you are doing great.

Ah I smiled. Lovely! I congratulate you for your achievement and I am sure that this is only the beginning!

Thank you! Those numbers are peanuts to you, no? 😋

Welcome! I always learn and improve, numbers are just numbers😁

I shared this on Twitter - #posh <3

Your posts have never failed to make me - and surely many others - smile, and learn new things. Every post is an exploration into what's possible, and how to improve yourself, bit by bit. I'm definitely thankfully that you decided to use those keys for Hive, instead of Steemit, eh?

Thanks as always for writing, and for inspiring us to newer heights. Cheers to 101 posts, and here's to the next 101! 🥂🍻
