Hi! I'm Effie and this is my first post

This is exciting! A new place to share and talk about things I'm passionate about. My main interests are plants, growing and making things with them. I'm especially fascinated by plants with medicinal benefits and the ways they have been used by various cultures throughout history. I also enjoy baking and playing with new recipes, thrifting, collecting books, and taking pretty pictures. When not working I can usually be found playing with my son. He's amazing.
Some of what I post here might be cross-posted with my Instagram, @effieoutside.
Here are some photos from the IG account:

Thank you so much! I appreciate the welcome! I'm checking out your profile too.
Hive has been really interesting so far. There is a learning curve to it for sure. I'm trying to get the hang of it though.

Welcome to Hive @effieoutside. Are you by any chance Greek? Cause Effie is a Greek name 😁

Beautiful photography by the way!

Hi! Thank you so much for the welcome and I'm glad you like my photos!
Effie is a name that goes way back in my ancestry but I'm not Greek. Mostly German and Danish.

Your skate vlogs are really cool! There's a skate park that I like to take my son to sometimes. He's only five and I don't know how to skate but we both like to watch everyone there. I should get him a skateboard soon so he can start learning how to do it himself.

Thanks a lot for your kind words.

I'm Greek and my gf's name is Effie so I thought of asking hahaha!

Skateboarding is a really cool hobby, especially for a youngster like your son and it's not as dangerous as they make it look like!

Let me know if you have any questions about Hive and I'll get back to you ASAP!
Cheers and always have fun!

It is a relief to hear that skateboarding isn't as dangerous as it seems.

Welcome @effieoutside! Your photos and stories will be safe here on the HIVE blockchain for eternity. Wonderful pictures! Doesn't it feel nice to be rewarded monetarily here, instead of nothing on insta?

Thank you @intothewild! I really appreciate the mention on your blog. It's so kind of you to introduce newbies like that.

You're right, it does feel much nicer here compared to Insta. It feels like posting here is actually worth the effort instead of falling emptily just to look pretty somewhere.

Welcome, welcome Effie! Your intro read like you'd fit right into the @naturalmedicine community. I also think I could learn a lot from you. I'm not sure what front-end you're using, but here are the links for the Natural Medicine community on Hive.blog and Peakd.com. Peakd.com is the better front-end, in my opinion.

Natural Medicine welcomes all things natural health, healthy cooking and organic gardening related.

Welcome Effie to HIVE you are here !!!!

Insta first and now hive great move. Love the rain drop picture
Its interesting and great that you put your story into a blog and left it here on the blockchain, so welcome, welcome to the Hive movement and blockchain. Your first blog is up and on the chain, hope you feel relieved, and not afraid of what is coming your way in the comments.
We know it can be daunting and frightening because all is new.
If you want to read some history this is a blog https://peakd.com/hive-198524/@hivepeople/hive-for-noobs-hive-198524 about it.

But for now the new beginning, you will have fun blogging and vlogging I promise. But in the beginning it’s hard and all is new and maybe you need help. We have amazing people here and a help discord if you need it. I love blogging, and was a newcomer once aswell so i know the feeling. The biggest and best advice is always be carefull with all your passwords, Never give those up !! I speak from experience !

What always will help you build your new hive account, and profile on here, is establishing relationships and the best way to build them is to comment on other people's posts, there are so many topics here, and there will always be one that is of interest to you but also be interested in them, by reading and upvoting. This will draw them to your own account aswell, where they will discover a little more about you and relationships take off from there, and comments and votes will be the next step. When you have a twitter account you van visit #hivelift for more information.

I use Peakd to post to Hive but Ecency is also a possibility. It’s a website, mobile and desktop application that improves your experience on Hive. If you are interested for Android download : https://android.ecency.com, for iOS: https://ios.ecency.com, for desktop: https://desktop.ecency.com apps that helps you to connect, and that’s what we do here !
You can also earn to promote and boost your content. Again If you are interested https://ecency.com just some extra information in this early start of your journey here! Last hive.blog is an option too. They work well and let me know if you have difficulty.

Good luck with with hive experience and I Will See you around and may you find here what you are looking for. Just remember that all good things come in good time and never giving up is THE key to the big succes on the Blockchain.

Also you could join the the Terminal discord. Or visit @heyhaveyamet for more new arrivals, newbies exposure in the beginning is very important, and you can always learn from others.
Let me know if this was helpfull or if you need more help, or better see you in Discord
the Terminal.
Here is the invite its free,

https://discord.gg/XZGPGpz

Greeting from the Netherlands
@ Brittandjosie

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

Thank you so much for the advice, links, and very warm welcome! That was sweet of you to reach out to newbie me.
So far the most intimidating part has been replying to everyone. I don't want to be ignoring my kiddo meanwhile. Maybe blogging more about things we do together could help with that. I'm excited about it anyways.😁
