My Top 5 Favourite Posts in Hive Learners.
One of the communities I have come to make a home with is the Hive Learners Community. This is a place on Hive where its purpose is to teach, learn and improve users' skills and thrive to be a better Hivian. I have felt a big impact here and I never regretted becoming a part of it. I remembered when I first joined, no one invited me but I came across some posts that were writing about the same topic and was curious to write on it too because of how interesting it was.
I searched for the original post and stumbled on @kronias' account, went through the post and I got to know that I would have to be a verified member to be eligible for the featured topics, and also to be supported.
I opened the community and read the description of HL and got the discord channel. I joined and did all I needed to do by going through the example of what others did through the verification process and within the next day, I got verified and joined the next featured topic. It was a decision I never looked back to let go or avoid because of a lot of things I have learnt, the people I have met and how welcoming the team behind this community are.
I never missed a week participating in their weekly featured edition except for missing an episode or two in the week but I made sure to do the rest for that week. I have always smiled and was proud of myself for not missing out each week because there were always amazing topics to talk about. Every topic had their ways through my childhood and life experiences and it amazed me to see how I had a part in all those topics because I always have one or two things to talk about.
Apart from my participation, I am always happy because I get to read others' posts too to see their own experiences and what else they have to talk about. I have always supported this community in my own way and made it grow by inviting people to join, I visit members and most importantly, never miss out on attending the Saturday and Monday hangouts held on Discord where we have fun, talk about our ideas, laugh and joke a lot. There are weeks I did miss too but my mind has always been part of the fun because it has always been interesting.
For this edition, I would be sharing with us five of my favourite posts for the year of writing these featured topics. Though it's hard scrolling back to get those posts, it was worth it since we are celebrating the community´s anniversary.
The first post is titled "Tour De Force"
Tour De Force is a featured post that was written on the 23rd of June, 2022. This was week 15, episode 3 and we were asked to talk about our proudest achievement in life. Tour De Force means an achievement or performance that shows great skills and attracts admiration. This post talked about how I taught in a school and had a passion for the profession where I impacted in the lives of some wonderful pupils.
What motivated me to write about this achievement was to let my readers know how being passionate about a skill or profession could lead you to achievement and also be your pride. I remembered how a parent stood up to applaud and appreciated me of how I taught her son a major part of his academics which he never stopped being proud of in the house. No matter what you do, be passionate and determined to bring the best and you will see a great result that would give you Joy.
The second post is titled "Discipline yourself through Budgeting"
Budgeting is a post that was written on the 19th of September, 2022 and for week 28, episode 1. We were asked to talk about the factors to consider when budgeting.
In my post, I said that money is a spirit that disappears quickly and one wouldn't be able to give an account of how they spend it. But one can be able to minimize this through self-discipline, self-control, conscious awareness and proper management.
I was motivated to write this post during that moment I started to budget and had an app which I am still using today. I wrote the post to make people aware that one of the ways to save and cut down on our excessive and overspending is to make a budget for things we need and not what we want. Budgeting is a great financial skill that would help us to focus on our savings goal and to reduce the way we spend on expenses.
Ever since I started making a list of things to spend on through budgeting, I have been focused and consistent in saving and deciding what to buy before getting it.
The third post is titled "I learnt my Zodiac signs"
Zodiac Signs is a post I made on the 21st of September, 2022 for week 28 episode 2. We were asked to write about our zodiac sign.
I never knew what zodiac signs were until that very day I saw the featured topic. I went to research about it and my motivation for writing and letting people know what my sign was led me to make the post. I got to know about my sign which is Capricorn. Some of the personality traits of this sign surprised me because I exhibited them. I got to learn something that day which stuck in my brain till now.
The fourth post is titled "Parenting habits to activate and deactivate: My experience as a child"
This post was written on the 6th of March, 2023 for week 52 episode 1. We were asked to write about parenting and how we experienced this during childhood.
When I saw this topic, it made me reflect and went back to memories and how my parents had taught my siblings and me. I felt motivated to share the lessons I acquired through their parenting with others. During those times, I was taught a lot of things through reinforcement and punishment. I got to understand that parenting isn't a simple task but a hard one which takes discipline and a great sacrifice to commit to.
I got to share with other fellow HL members my lessons that one must always admit their wrongs which my dad used in bringing us up. Also, we were taught how we were free to choose when there was enough and in abundance but had to settle with whatever was available without complaining because not all days would be rosy. There are other lessons you can read about if you haven't gone through the post yet.
The fifth post is titled "When saying sorry is just too hard"
This post was written on the 13th of March for week 53 episode 1. We were asked to write about a time when saying sorry was too hard to say.
Why I wrote about this post was an incident that happened on the 11th in my compound. This lady refused to apologize even when she was at fault but stood her ground because of her pride which ended her friendship with the other person. This is why I decided to write a post to let my readers know how bad and dangerous not saying sorry could be.
Just as what happened with this girl because of her stubbornness and pride, she ruined a friendship they have built for some years together. Saying sorry even if you are not at fault doesn't make you a fool or dummy but wanting to make peace reign is all that matters.
These are one of my favourite posts I chose for this edition and my experience of writing about them was what motivated me to share them so others can learn since this is all about Hive Learners.
While still in the mood of celebrating the first anniversary, watch out for my subsequent posts within the week.
You indeed is an active hive learners member. Congrats for it. Me I am a member too but I seldom write about the topic because of some reasons. Sometimes I am busy and can't write and sometimes I can't put my thoughts into sentences and worst I don't have something to write about the topic. I do participate if I can relate with the topic and if I have time to write.
Yes, I understand those topics might not be relatable to some people, just like you. And also, no wonder I have not been seeing your posts lately in the community.
Thank you for stopping by, Jen.
I also love the parenting topic and that of I am sorry too. You got good selections here. I can’t remember most of last years topic. I have to go and check them out again from my profile.
Nice one from you princess. I will be dropping mine soon.
Thank for sharing
I slept late last night trying to get those last year´s posts as I remembered them and would love to share them here. Please, go and bring your entry.
Hehe. I am on my way bringing them 😂. I need support 😂
HL has sharpened our writing skills so far. The featured topic ideas has had ways of making our mind travel back to amazing memories. You have shown so much dedication to the community and that's a great support in Ur own way. Your top favourite five is unique....I had a glance of the original content and they are so motivating.
Thanks for always participating princess
Together, we will make HL a greater community in hive
Yes, I have always been dedicated to this community and it´s something I am proud of on Hive, it has been an amazing year together. I love how those topics helped us flash back to memories and how we could relate to them too.
Together, we are here for HL and we will make it great. Thank you so much for taking your time to read my post.
You really came a long way on your journey in this community, though I know I had a lot of challenges too when I joined newly but atleast I had someone to put me through. It's funny how along the way the community became my addiction, if i don't participate in any of the contest I feel left out, even if I made posts in other communities.
Left to me every topic on the hive Learners weekly is just the best on it's own. There was no topic I ever wrote on that wag s not educative.
I was opportune to read few of your posts and I will attest that from what I read , few which you stated here, I am convinced that they were the best. In fact I have never read any of your post and came out thesame .. all of them are just so inspiring. Shey you know you are part of my motivators in this community 😁😁
Yea, I would attest to the fact that all the topics were awesome and educative too because it gives us the space to be creative and bring out the best. Though some may find it hard at first, along the line, it became part of us that we do not want to miss any of the topics and when we do, it feels like we have been left out of the fun.
And yes, I have always appreciated the fact that you always show up in my posts even though I don´t most times. I am really grateful for that, Emreal. You are the best too on Hive and doing better each day.
Thanks so much for the last sentence of your comment. It encourages me more. God bless you.
We hope to continue in this community together. All the best too.
The beginning is always the hardest, if we keep pushing with time everything will become smooth, just like a rough portion of wood,the more you keep rubbing it with a sand paper the more it becomes smooth
Smiles.. you have been doing your best in checking up on me too, and I really do appreciate it.
You are always welcome ma..it's a privilege to have you🥰🥰🥰
Hmmm 😊 I can see that you are a very active user on hive learner weekly engagement
Well I don't really have must to write but i will also try my best for this contest
All the best sis
Yes, you should try to make a post too. Thanks for your comment.
You are one of the active people that make sure they participate in every week's contest and you are part of my motivation in hive general. You are really hard-working and you deserve all the good things.
Hive is proud of you too😁
Happy HL anniversary 🎉
Heheheh... I am proud of Hive too. Lol
Thank you, dear.
WOW! I am challenged. You never missed a week without contest. Sometimes I do mis especially when I travel and no network. But I thank God for you. Keep it up dear.
Thanks for sharing and also happy one year anniversary to us all.
Hehehe... It has been a part of me for long which I never missed since I joined. Thank you, ma
We are supposed to be calling many of you in this community grandparents. You guys have been here since the beginning, and you have seen the community grow into what it has become now, a home for many.
You have shown resilience and consistency, and that's admirable. And your posts are a reflection of your personality.
I am a little surprised you didn't know the zodiac before. Well, you do now, and that's what matters.
Cheers to the community!!
😅😅😅 I am still young in the community.
Thank God I have been consistent too and it's because HL made me feel comfortable like a home. Who would want to leave such a comfortable arena? Lol
I didn't know the meaning then, though I was always hearing people shouting "this is what my zodiac sign is", I never bothered checking online until the need arises 😁
Thanks, Olujay for coming through my post.
you have chosen your five favorite topics which are very good and have also sorted them with so much detail and the first topic that is your choice is a good topic, you have a good achievement in your life and you are sharing this happy moment with us here, you also provide motivation for others to always be enthusiastic
Yes, these were just five of my favorites posts in the community and I am glad sharing them again. Thank you, Vikar 🤗
So, you're a Capricorn too. That one got to me. I'm happy to have a fellow Capricornian. Is that the name for it?😂
I look forward to reading each of these stories. Happy Hive Learners Anniversary to you.🌺
hahaha... Capricornian? This is funny 😆 Perhaps you might end up making a new word for yourself. Lol
Thank you for reading.
Like play like play, I don create new word o.😂 It was a pleasure reading dearest princess.🥰
One of the most active members on the community...Your writing skills is top notch and you are always interactive...Great works you have here
Thank you for noticing too 👏
All are great entries, I have learnt a lot from this great platform, and I can't hide that.
There are many entries I wasn't familiar with the title, but I would always make some research. This always increases my level of learning.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge, you are amazing!?
Yea... HL helps us in that aspect of learning and upgrading our knowledge. Thank you for reading too.
You are welcome dear
Happy anniversary to all of us... indeed, we all are indebted to this great initiative.
We can't finish the goodness of the community to us.
Popped in via @dreemport.
I'm kinda confused though, you posted this somewhere else aside here 🤔
Hey, Sam, I am sorry for coming late to reply.
Yes, I posted in the wrong community and had to crosspost with a caption stating my reason in the Hive Learners community.
Thanks for your comment. We will continue to enjoy the good things the community has to offer us.
I wondered why because I was sure I've read the post elsewhere but couldn't find my comment.
It's clearer now though.
That was a beautiful piece nevertheless
Thank you 😊
