Go ahead and load up a bowl, roll a spliff, twist a blunt, grab a dab, rub some RSO on, and munch down an edible... It’s time to celebrate, #SmokeFam!
It is my first month on Smoke.io and it’s felt like home from the start! Thanks to ALL OF YOU.
Rather late to the party, I wandered into Smoke.io via a link from the Canna Curate discord.
I immediately saw a few names/faces that I recognized from Steemit (where I once loved to create). And I am really glad I joined.
I missed creating content and was looking for new platforms to do that. They are not all created equal, so it’s harder than I anticipated. Steemit stopped feeling like ‘home’ long ago, so not being a social media vagabond makes me happy.
Smoke.io gives us a great platform to build on.
The post editing here is similar to Steemit and those two platforms are a golden opportunity for creators, whether we know it or not. I find too much nonsense in the ‘politics’ of the Steem community and simply got tired of being dragged into it.
I find smaller communities to be a better fit for me and considering we all share the common interest of cannabis here, that makes it vastly different than Steemit or any platform I know of.
Quality over Quantity
You may (or may not) notice that I don’t post everyday. I’m a busy dude, but I also try to create to the best of my abilities so I am in no rush.
You could say I take my sweet ass time. And that’s ok.
I know my content can be better and that is my goal. In order to reach my goal, I must challenge myself. When I write a review, I read one review by @jackdub Or @potspoon and go back to the drawing board 🤣. I love it! There are many of you pushing the bar higher and that is creating more quality content. Worthy of a roasting toast 🔥 #smokefam.
I’m no content guru or supreme writer - just a dude that loves doing what I’m doing. I love cannabis and I love creating content about things that I love. So you can see why Smoke.io platform and I have become best buds.
I respect all of you creators, regardless of your skill level. That said, I love seeing the vast spectrum of content here and it’s not my aim to dilute that unnecessarily. Sometimes I have a post written and see a handful of great articles in the recent section - I’ll wait to post it.
I’d rather wait than to bury some stellar articles in the feed. Maybe I’ve just overanalyzed and am overthinking here, but many times ‘less is more’. I admire those of you who can rapid fire kickass content everyday. It’s not easy and I salute those who can do it - I’m not sure I could (yet).
MUCH LOVE ❤️ TO CURATORS HERE
Especially @indica for spreading that SMOKE all over! One of the first to stand out to me here and for many reasons, you’re a true pillar of the platform, mate! I have noticed a bit more activity and many more comments - that seems to be increasing from my observation just over my 1 month here.
We are a community and it’s great to see us treating it as such. We can set aside differences and share a common ground as a collective, which is a very special thing to share if you ask me. We can argue, fight, bang heads - but at the end of the day WE ARE #SmokeFam.
There are so many creators & curators here that inspire me to continue
A Toast to All of You Smoke.io Creators 🔥
There is so much great content here and no shortage of good people. We might not have a massive user base but what we have is a solid group of creative humans that share a common bond.
Facebook might have critical mass of users BUT they can’t even say that they have what we have here. It’s a special place and I will smoke to that!
BIG THANKS to all of the witnesses that keep this network running.
I know that maintaining a network is no ‘set and forget’ operation. Keeping this chain running is vital to the community and I think I can speak for most when I say THANK YOU.
