Hiversery - Three Years on the Blockchain(s)

in #hive4 months ago (edited)

I knew it had to be around this time, but today I got the notification from HiveBuzz: I have just completed my third year in this community of content creators, first on the the previous blockchain, and now almost entirely on Hive. At the same time I just got back home from an extended project in a place without much connectivity, so either way it's a good time for a bit of recap. Only yesterday I got around to pruning my posts from the other chain, leaving only a short explanation with a link to their corresponding versions on Hive. This is another reason why I feel like a bit of a sum up is in order.

In other words, let me list my favorite posts in categories, of course with the proper peakd-link. Other than the ones mentioned here, I also have lots of other posts (you're welcome to scroll through the complete list in my profile), but these are the ones I may want to come back to, and in case you haven't seen them, they are the ones I can most recommend checking out. Enjoy!!!
