Hi dear smokers,
I don't make many posts on smoke.io, as me and my wife are more into reading your posts and curating and giving you some motivation back while you fill us with joy via your various posts. Be it about variety of buds, pipes , joints , growing weed or may be some arts, and latest news on Cannabis we enjoy all of them. Because you put in effort to share something with the community and promote some positive vibe about this community.
Btw I'm in States and so I'm not sharing the picture of my joy, I'm smoking(Hush! Hush!). It's just a cigar you Mr. FBI! lol!!!
I have spent most of my life working for someone else(apart from my small store), and still I do. But working in a tech industry for someone else has one problem. They don't care about you the moment something bad happens to you and you are unable to work more!
Then I started my journey on Crypto world buying some tokens here and there. But really I couldn't find a reason to stick with Crypto world, apart from the huge volatile nature of it and with some hope of making a few bucks in a hope to retire within next few years and start something of my. own. That was one of the reason I started my journey on steemit as well. Initially there was some motivation , However, it faded as the platform wasn't having a clear direction and the community was split in different pieces, so there was very less interaction. Again, I didn't feel welcomed by the steemit platform even at this point. There are many reason for it, which I wouldn't speak at this point as we all know about it.
Then I saw someone posted about smoke.io on steemit and my inner soul woke up when I arrived at this platform. We didn't reveal anywhere that we were cannabis as we often visit places which aren't legalized for cannabis and we stay there for long duration. So we never had interest in Social Media's like Facebook, Twitter etc. As most of the time when you share these things, some people point fingers at you, some people demotivate you and those centralized social medias are not just right for keeping our soul happy.
When I found SMOKE.IO , I found people with similar interests, I found people who are warm and welcoming in nature, and make you feel like part of their family member. I found people raising voice for medical and recreational Marijuana legalization, I also found people willing to help each other without expecting something in return. I hardly see these in a tech industry. I felt loved and received warm welcome from every smoker I met here. My wife who has depression issue, found this place to be very useful as she now get to listen to other womens who go through similar anxiety issues. And she too received warm welcome from the community. We often talk about people we met on smoke.io when we have a relaxing dabbing session in the evening after work.
This platform is already enriched with people from technical expertise background to help us make our stay warm and comfortable with their brilliant ideas and tools. There are many more useful tools to come in future. The opportunity here is immense and every talented smoker is working hard to make our life easier.
Why is smoke.io my family? And why should you be proud of being a part of it?
