My Introductory Post


Good afternoon creatives.
My name is Olutayo Esther OreOluwa, I am currently a final year student in the Department of Human Kinetics and Health Education, University of Lagos. I got to know about this great platform through a very good friend @leonardo817

I am a self taught artist, a writer and an athlete. I'm also a lover of God, nature, life and landscape.

My artistic journey started about 2 years ago, though the passion for art has always been something that's in-built within me.

During my early years, I loved to go visit the museum, watch beautiful scenarios online and all of that.
I appreciated nature and landscape but my athletic career was more dominant and demanding.

During the COVID pandemic in 2020, I couldn't train as often as I should as all stadiums were closed. I had to resort to personal training indoors.
It was then I looked within and told myself I had to make something out of the burning desire I had for arts.

I told God about it and with the leadings and promptings of the Holy Spirit, I was able to start learning the basics of art.

Art is really wide and versatile. But I love the still-life and abstract aspect of it. I'm drawn towards nature paintings, landscapes, seascapes and abstract paintings. I resonate deeply with them and I find it easier to write meaningful content on them too.

A great artist that I really appreciate is Lena Denya. She's so good at what she does and seeing her works pushed me to become a better version of myself too.

Painting so far has taught me patience in every way..quite funny yeah. But it doesn't hurt cause it's what I enjoy doing.

It's a great opportunity to be here on this platform and I hope to be an asset to the advancement of this great community. Thanks so much for having me.


Hi olutayo YES you did it you are a hiver now. So I will leave the brittstarterkit to get you started in your journey here. But first Congrats it’s a great step in the blogging crypto world and blockchain.

There are a few tips needed in the beginning.
Not a must rather an advise to not let the Hive and the new experience be to daunting.

Your passions in real life can be an inspiration for online life and thoughts put into writing and a brand new hive blog is great and will be rewarded with votes which is fun. Your niche, hobby, views or new ideas are appreciated and will be read. If you have questions let us on hive know. There are many hivers that will help , if you ask your questions in comments or in a discord!

There is so much so all topics will have a place here. The hivinguniverse is so diverse it’s suitable for all of us. See the list of all communities on hive in your front end drop down menu. ( sound difficult but it’s the row on the left 😉 ) never give any of your passwords and please don’t click on links you get in comments in the beginning that can cause theft. Later in you will know what to click and what not.

There is a Discord called The Terminal for newbies and it has all the answers to your questions, join in, it’s free.
I am on Hive everyday ! You can always leave a comment. And we all have been ther so please don’t be afraid to ask there is so much that the beginning can be daunting and scary.

Welcome to the Hive community @orearts22!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, Keychain, Peaklock, and Hivesigner,
  3. The master password and the owner key are only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your password or keys; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once , and
  7. DO NOT OPEN any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hiveans available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!
