Hello Steemians, Let me introduce myself ...


If dust bunny corners and dog slobbered windows could describe my view of the world, it might actually be accurate. Hello Steemit Community. My name is Grace Shen and I live with 10 snow dogs. “Snow dogs” emphasized since that means lots of hair creating these lovely dust bunnies in the house with their own ecosystem of collecting other debris to make larger and more interesting bunnies.

I am 47 years young (have to stay young to walk and run with the snow dogs of course) and have always loved to use writing as an outlet for expression and soul searching. I love all animals and have been involved with education and action with animal welfare issues and related environmental movements. I recently had my floors redone and the workers left a mess of vinyl dust and fragments all over the garden, and the phrase came to me to “treat the outside as the inside,” for both are our homes. I think if people adopted that intent, the Earth would be in a much better place!

I am also involved with yoga, hiking, healthy food, and am in the active phase of writing a musical….songs, dialogue, and stage settings. I currently work as a Physical Therapist for a home health company and enjoy meeting people in their own spaces. I have also delved into Feng Shui, so going to people’s homes helps me know so much more about them.

I am excited to be part of a community that is so creatively expressive and fun. My friends joined recently and Steemit has certainly become a large part of their lives and extended family.

Looking forward to Steeming ahead with creative ventures!

Looking forward to being in this creative community with you, and thankful for all your help on this journey.


I would love your help on the first post I have planned too.


Can you possibly get on Discord, @gracefulhearts? It will be easier to help you through this medium. Discord will be very helpful in the future, too as you learn and grow on Steemit :)


Welcome to Steemit @gracefulhearts! Hope you connect with lots of people here, there is a lot of wonderful community . Some amazing posts from people sharing a wide array of knowledge. It sounds like you will have a lot to contribute too. Where abouts are you from with the snow dogs?


I currently live near Asheville NC and am thinking of moving to a more snow country area...perhaps Vermont? Thanks for your response!


You probably will get a lot more snow in Vermont than North Carolina! We get lots up here in Saskatchewan, Canada. In fact the area that I live in was opened up first through the water systems and travel was by dog sled in the winter. We own a big German Shepard - my protector!

Welcome to Steemit Grace.

Welcome to Steemit. Followed you and I hope you follow me back. One of the key factors to be successful in Steemit is to invest some amount of money to increase your Steem Power. ( This is not an obligation and you can also earn with good content). You are so lucky because it is the best time to make investment since it has the lowest price for a long time. When I started it was around 5$. Basically, you have 5 times higher chance than me to earn good money. It always fluctuates as all the cryptocurrency, so I'm sure that it will be high again. Even with only buy and sell option, you can make money. Please feel free to ask me any question.


Thanks for the info and advice. Lots to learn here and thankful for all the support.

Hello @gracefulhearts. Welcome to Steemit community!!!
