New Kid on the Block(chain)

The dreaded first post! Have to get it out the way at some point I suppose...

Hi there, I just signed up to Hive after reading about the platform on, which I only signed up to a few days ago after having read about it on Publish0x. And I've been there for 1 week now. So yeah, I guess you can call me a newbie in the space. But I'm certainly intrigued by the Hive ecosystem and looking forward to delve into the conversation and learning along the way.

As for me, I consider myself a bit of a writer and I have several full length novels in the works. I am in the process of building a fictional dystopian city, Ghoston. Hence my blog at Publish0x: Ghoston Chronicles. I have a novel running over there at the moment called Covid-42x, chapter 7 released not that long ago.

I've also released a short story on, called Ridley's Rovers and will be releasing another novel there chapter by chapter, called Numb. Here's a link to my posts:

I also set up an account at OpenSea recently where I would like to sell some digital art, I'll likely keep you updated on that too. I must admit the art is quite basic, silly even, but I do feel a bit of inspiration bubbling and I hope to get some better quality pieces up there in the not too distant future. So for all you collectors out there, get it while it's hot!

Here's a picture that I minted as an NFT:

For lovers of the short form, you can also catch me over at Twitter: but I guess my voyage through the Hive ecosystem might bring me elsewhere along the way. I've also heard good things about as a microblogging alternative.

Other ideas on the horizon include blogging about other topics that keep my brain ticking, a YouTube account, audiobooks (in podcast form maybe?), maybe some photography. The opportunities are endless for us digital creatives, the birth of web3 is surely an exciting time!

So if that sounds interesting to you, then hop on board as we ride this wave together.

Take care out there!

to the Hive blockchain and platform, Yes its happening you are a hiver or Bee as we are calling ourselves now. This is the moment to warm welcome you as a new user. And you receive this message because you used the #introduceyourself tag!

I was welcomed with good advice too when I started so here I am returning the favour. I know that Hive may seem very overwhelming right now but don't worry. After a few blog you will be a great blogger and contributor.
If you have any questions just ask your questions on any of my blog posts and I'll be more than happy to assist you with whatever questions you may have! I may know the answer. If not I will know someone who does.

Very important I recommend you to never give up any off your passwords they are yours.
To blog i use Peakd, to control your account use Ecency, also an App I use is great, it gives you insight on what is happening in your account.

Maybe great to join the terminal in Discord and visit @heyhaveyamet to See more newcomers onboard.

Good Luck, Have fun and I wish you loads of success on here! :)

GREETZ from Holland

Good luck to you as the new arrival, may hive become your new life !

Thanks for the warm welcome and platform advice.

You are very welcome, i was once the new girl on the block aswell, let me know when you need help

Welcome to the Hive community @ghostonchronic!
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 and Peaklock,
  3. The owner password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; 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 Hivians available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!
