Let us please introduce ourselves

in #introduceyourself2 years ago


We are Petra and Denis, a young couple from Croatia.
Apart from studying and working, we spend our free time travelling, hiking, camping, discovering new places and road triping.

We would love to share with you our travel experiences so far, including beautiful places we discovered, tips on how to travel on low budget, our stories and knowledge we gained.

Aside from travelling, we are big food lovers. Cooking and trying out new recipes is something we do everyday so you can expect a lot of posts about our cuisine.

Also, my instagram page https://www.instagram.com/perozdero_/ is a place where you can see some nice photos from our trips so far.

Also, meet our dearest being in the whole world, Ziggy:

That's all for now, we'll write more about everything in future. Hope you enjoyed this post. 😊

Big thanks to our friend @tonac who introduced us with this community. We are very excited and happy to be here and to be able to share all the things we love.

Welcome to Hive!

Looks like I accidentally voted this too high with the ocdb account, don't let any potential downvotes coming your way discourage you from posting more and please don't get discouraged if your next posts don't make as much rewards. Staying consistent and being active in the communities through engagement, following and curating other people you enjoy the content of is a great way to get more constant support on your Hive posts. Hope you enjoy your time here!

LOL! Got trigger happy again? Lucky noob.

Peakd does this thing sometimes where you place it to a 10% vote and as you're about to hit vote it the 10% goes away and it votes it max. Then again voting on 2-300 posts per day manually there's a margin of error allowed every now and then I think. :p

I'm okay if people want to downvote it but I'm also okay with letting it be as the images are quality and it's a new user. ocdb already lost a ton of returns by voting this that high, current curation rewards incentivize people to vote more often with that size of an account for efficient ROI so I'd rather not penalize all our delegators by re-voting and it receiving 0 returns.

@acidyo We are sorry that you made a mistake with voting, but we were so happy yesterday we jumped around the house. If you decide to change your vote, we'll be okay with that and we'll still enjoy this site and do our best.

As we are new to Hive and don't understand much about it, we hope you didn't get into some kind of trouble.

oh no it's fine from my side, don't worry about it, there's plenty of less deserving posts on trending. :)

Hope you put the stake you may earn from this post into good use in your Hive journey!

there's plenty of less deserving posts on trending.


We'll just call this a happy accident/feel good story.

I'm not offended. Had a feeling it was a mistake before reading your comment. If it makes you feel any better, I stubbed my toe pretty bad today. You can't push buttons; I can't walk.

ocdb already lost a ton of returns by voting this that high

I swear by my mom one of these days I'm gonna hypnotize you or I'm gonna give you a full glass of juicy Scopolamine (Burundanga) to drink, so you also vote this high one of my posts and ocdb rather than one lose two tons of returns.

That's unlikely to happen even drugged and by accident.

Haha, you better not challenge me. You really have no idea of the humongous humorous superpower and magical legerdemain tricks of a Pink Cranky Gandalf.

I'd like to see him some day instead of the complainer I know you to be.

Psst! This is neither the time nor the place.

Pfft! you are still too nice, polite and diplomatic. I know you are well aware there is no such thing as the right time and place to discuss what needs to be discussed. The optimum and best time/place for that is precisely when the occasion presents itself. :p

Maybe so, but I'm also the biggest asshole here. It's called being multifaceted. I'm so good at being an asshole, you think I'm being nice. That took years of practice.

But seriously. What are we doing? Let these noobs have their moment. It's like you pushed a five year old off the stage during a Christmas concert so you could talk about problems with the school board. LOL!

I was worth the accident anyway.

They look like a lovely couple and I like their photos, especially the Iceland ones, so why not.

It's like a Hive lotto win for them 😁

Yeah sometime it hurts, when you are trying hard to post good content but doesn't making any money. But, I think one shouldn't be feel sad or demotivated as we all post these kind of stuff on other social media platform which don't earn us a single penny throughout years.

I saw the vote reward and ran on in here to find out what the content was that attracted so much attention. Lol

...and then you smiled!!

It's one of the sweetest and most motivational comments I have seen here in Hive. I believe they will do fine.

Thank you, we'll do our best and will definitely enjoy our time here.😊 Best regards!

Please do vote this back down to a sensible level @acidyo. It is very discouraging for people like myself who often spend days creating content and get around a $25 reward, to see someone post a bunch of food pics and less than 100 words of text and get over $300.

No offence @lapetra and welcome to the site.


someone post a bunch of food pics and less than 100 words of text and get over $300.

@cryptogee... Man cool down! No offense but I think your comment may discourage newbie. And it's not just a bunch of food pics, for me picture quality is too good. I see people are selling these types of images on stock photo websites. Though she got high-value vote by mistake, I think it's totally fine. There's no point to downvote it now.
She will be depressed for sure(even after realizing the issue) when she will find out that her reward came down to 40 or something like that. It's totally fine if she gets this reward. And the hive power will help her to give a decent start.

So downvoting isn't probably a good idea.

When i first came to Hive /Steemit as a noob, it was quite a good feeling to try to bag a whale vote and the first post for lots of people would often get a big upvote. More luck to these guys and welcome to Hive.

Hey @eroche!! Not seen you around for a long time. I hope you're well and life is treating you kindly!
Any chance you could relaunch @letseat please mate? we NEED mobile Apps more than ever :-)

I agree the photoquality is superb and honestly the reason I just replied to him with a short comment is cause I'm not accepting people who just got back to posting and already doing better than 90% of other authors complain how they may feel seeing a newcomer get a big vote for once.

My point @pitboy is that it will encourage others to do this. Fair enough, if you guys are happy to have the blockchain populated by low quality posts that's up to you. Higher quality creators will leave.

Like I said, It's not personal against the original poster.


25$ and you complain? I would settle for getting a comment from time to time!

Hello. Heard you're looking for a comment. I might be able to help you with that.

Well I would appreciate it very much, but in my articles, a valid opinion on what I write. It feels very lonely over there, I would also value very much if after seeing my work you leave me some advice on how to do it better.

That's normal when someone is new. Imagine you just started up a new Youtube channel. That'll take some building and dedication. It's always quiet when you start out. As for making it better, that's hard to say. All I know is it needs to connect with people. Apply your own personality in order to make your content unique. Keep in mind, not everyone will be interested in your offerings, so don't take it personally. Search out like minds and talk to them. Be real. And that wall of text has got to go. Use paragraphs. And just know there are some people who have more videos on their youtube channels than they have views on all their videos combined. Welcome to the world of content creation.

Received, thank you very much. I am working on it.!

I don't mind someone becoming an instant minnow. It may encourage them to stick around, but they can't expect it every time. A lot of first posts do fairly well, but keeping going when it's cents on the next one is the real test,

So is it really giving encouragement or false hope? Also when others see one minnow getting say $50 for 1500 and various pics and links etc. that clearly took a long time, then another getting over $300 for mainly pics, they'll copy that and before you no it, you have a bunch of terrible introduce me posts.

We've seen it happen before. However I do get your point, that we want to encourage new users.


This was an extreme case and possibly a one-off. We need to find the right balance to make the newbies start.

Remember when people like dollarvigilante were getting $15k on a their first post?

Feel free to downvote it and welcome back.

Esta conversación está buenísima, quejosos y gatillo alegre, bueno lo que si es cierto es la felicidad del que recibió el error y eso es lo más importante, que sigan los momentos gratos y a dar tiempo para recuperar ese poder de voto, solo es un poco de tiempo y paciencia jejeje, saludos a todos.

An accident that I'm sure will make someone happy!!!! Also, the article is not too bad, I think it has quite a lot of quality.
