To put simple, I'm a divorced mother of 3 children and work from home as freelance developer, artist, and eCommerce entrepreneur (a fancy way of saying I have an eBay and Amazon store.) When I'm not Momming, which is never, I have a container garden. I Steem, Tweet, song write, and pretty much live by the breeze on a bees knees.
Reason To Join
Why I would like to join MAP? I instantly noticed when viewing the community page that there are contests and blogging prompts. That's helpful to me personally, as I sometimes struggle with "information stagnation" and don't end up posting at all. My goal is to post 1-3 times a day. Initially, my first goal was to learn how to write better altogether. As that's improved, I'm now having the problem of figuring out what to write about. :)
Why I'm also interested in AAKOM? I don't have a lot of posts of my own on the subject, but I'm big commentary participant on posts by @eftnow @meno @zyx066 and others. Likewise, I think the former mentioned would also be a good fit for your group. While I'd most properly be labeled as a transhumanist or agnostic metaphysician, the rabbit hole get deeper. In general however, my interest in the group is mostly to engage more on these types of topics. Because it's really hard to find other authors in this niche.
So where I feel I would contribute more as an author is to MAP, but more as a commentator would be to AAKOM; at least that would be my self-interest, which of course is only partially considered.
I'm also interested in growing my account. I'll be upfront about that. I'd like to be a minnow and perhaps a dolphin one day. I feel I have limited resources, time, and support to offer because of my vest limitations. I just sometimes feel like a curation Lamborghini with no gas.
I would also like to be transparent that I'm also a dedicated member of @helpie, @asapers, and @smg. Again, as a Redfish, they do more for me at the moment than I can offer them. But I'm hoping the tables will turn someday and that I can be empowered to return all the loving gestures of those who've had my back in this Steem Journey — hopefully, @accelerator @aakom included.
Here is a post that summarizes some of my contributions this past 3 months including my Curied posts, Truffles, and overall account wellness and growth.
Do You Have a Darkside? This post is about "Shadow Work."
Untitled. This post is about the shame associated with cultlike authority.
Breaking the Silence. Part 1 speaking about the journey of Autism diagnosis of my 2 kids, ...and myself.
Why everyone on Steemit would benefit from watching Divergent, the movie.
Lonely Road. A post about alcohol addiction and detoxing, physically, socially, and mentally.
I'm also a co-writing contributing volunteer to Steem Monsters, and placed in their Cartography competition. I'm working towards building a fantasy universe that will hopefully be considered toward cannon lore.
Lastly, but not only, I'm developing an onboarding platform and various small projects such as Steemdaily.press and SteemTipathon using @steemtipper, to distribute Steem off the blockchain to prospective users. Looking to show off top projects like @Dlive, @Dtube, @Steemtipper, @Steemmonsters, @Steemhunt, @utopian-io, @steempress-io and content from Steemit Open Mic, Curie, OCD, and others on Steemdaily.press while streaming, tipping, and possibly even giving out monster cards to those who sign up through my show.
It's a work in progress though. My Steemit blog is a mashup of backstory and "inside operations." :)
Request For Comments
Part of the application process, I assume from reading their instructions, is my friends/followers are to write something about why they would recommend me as an asset to their team? I think? Anyhow, if you would like to make a recommendation, I would be grateful. Thank you.
