Craft blogger with 3 million followers joining Hive! 👋 🎉

in OCD2 years ago (edited)

👋 Hello everyone! A short introduction about myself.

I’m mom, a kindergarten teacher and have been a ✂️ craft blogger since 2015, making paper craft videos and tutorials.

 "Hello_Hive.png" (Yes, its really me)

I’m followed by millions of teachers and parents from all around the globe on my social media:

Facebook 2.5 million followers Instagram 330K YouTube 93 K

I created well over 2000 unique craft ideas or coloring templates over the years. Published 5 printed books and many eBooks. My crafts have reached well 100.000.000 fans over the years, so its possible that you have seen them already 😃

 " " \"Bundle.jpg\"""

Now why am I here? Well, big shout out to @phortun, who is a friend of my husband Tom (he is the tech person behind whole this) who introduced us to Hive.

We are no longer happy with the way how are the major social treating creators 😟. Decreasing reaches at a whim and providing no equal ways how to make a living as content creator or protecting your intellectual property.

I would like to try it for some time and make Hive our next platform, hopefully overtime superior to all other.

 " "Crafts 4@0,75x.jpg""

I plan to post here three times a week, 📅 and you can look forward to very easy paper craft ideas. Anyone can do at home, kindergarten or any social/educational actives. I will share how-to as well as printable templates (I hope I can upload them here) for everyone to use.

 " "Templates 1@0,75x.jpg""

I hope to eventually introduce hive to my fan base, once I get comfortable with the platform - but you know well how hard it is for users to try something new. Anyway! Thanks for reading, here are some of my recent works and I will start this week!

Reny ❤️

Yes! Finally! :) So glad and excited to have you here guys! Welcome and enjoy the ride! I am sure you will be a great addition to our DIY community and with such a massive fan base on other social media, your promotion of Hive can go a really long way :) Welcome again!

@tipu curate 3

As we all know Hive is a great place to be!
I hope @craftingwithreny as of friends of yours have the eye to see the potential in here...
And how we can create value for us, our followers, and basically our time spend in social media via web 3.0 &

I also hope @craftingwithreny if you have any questions about the blockchain feel free to reach out to me on chain here, my pleasure will be to spend my time and help you understand the network and its potential as fast as possible so we can walk thru the web evolution as soon as possible(anyway it's inevitable)

@phortun I also have a very good friend of mine who is a social influencer but she has a hard time working with the network...

And again it's a matter of time, the question is only one:
When they will onboard hive...?

This comment payouts for you my friend @phortun

Namaste :)

Hey Iliyan! Thank you for this kind comment and the warm welcome left for them. No worries, we are on the phone every day now as I explain everything they should know about Hive so they definitely know about the potential here. They are ready to post and engage regularly and also introduce Hive to their fans ;)

I am sorry your recruit Tammie hasn´t been very active here, her fan base on IG is also impressive. I know you have brought a lot of great bloggers here and you are very patient to explain everything important. Keep up the good work, Hive needs more people like you :)

Have an amazing weekend my friend!

Same to you @phortun
I see @craftingwithreny
Is very responsive to comments as well...
It's good to notice at the beginning that each comment can be rewarded from followers (tipu is not working well on them today) or community members.
Basically, your followers can earn from each other just by communicating about your work for example.
All they have to understand good is:

  • Protect understand passwords very well!
  • Start with a good intro post, maybe you can also create a community and invite your followers there as well, kind of find a funny way to ask them to introduce them selfs and so on the train is on the rail always :)


Yeah, exactly, that´s what I told them. The fans can actually be rewarded for supporting their favorite craft creators, I talked about it in this post. The possibilities are incredible. Yeah, @craftingwithreny are going to create their own community ;) But no rush, they have only been here with us a few days and you know how overwhelming it can feel for the newbies here so it´s better if they just take it easy, one step at a time...

Yes, I understand...
My first recommendation for a newbie is to start with @ecency mobile app...
But there is the next problem I see is not running properly on many Huawei phones.

  • And many more, not good software developed companies my guess and is not running ultimately.
  • I as an iPhone and Ecency user I'm having a great experience always...
    Doing my best if I find some problems by reporting them...
  • Trying to find the easiest way to bring user experience to the user, email registration that Ecency provides is one of the best options for me personally.

That's why my focus will be on explaining more Ecency and over time getting people familiar with the Entire Hive blockchain by steps...

I am currently on PeakD works for well. Is ecency better?

Ecency can earn you -> Ecency points from comments, likes, all activities on the network basically...
Those points can be exchanged for Ecency boosts or comments.
Last time when I did the math...

  • A normal user can earn 60-70 Ecency points a day easily.
    That is equal to $0.25 a day on average...


Yay! 🤗

@tipu curate 2


No worries buddy, I already dropped some TipU votes on their intro :) But thanks!

tipu was for the 1 comment, I made it payout for you :)

Oh really? I didn´t know you can put a TipU vote on a comment too. Can you? I haven´t tried yet... But anyway, thank you, very kind of you :)

Yes, you can, I also use it sometimes to create a comment myself add beneficiaries as I did in the first comment, but tipu counts that as a self vote, And I'm doing this kind of often to show people that value can be brought just by using it daily as s social habit.

I also know you are great at supporting the growth of the Network as well as Bulgarian newbies...

So this tipu is for you and the first comment that didn't when thru!

@tipu curate

Wow. I have been a TipU curator for years but I didn´t know this :D Interesting. Thank you very much again :)

Welcome to Hive. Glad to see more content creators and I love crafts though I do not usually have the patience. A warm welcome as you settle in

Hello and thanks! :) I try to make them as easy as possible so might be fun for you as well :D

Juhůůů! Je super mít vás tady! Těším se na váš obsah. Doufám, že to tady splní vaše očekávání a že se s námi budete mít fajn ❤️ Tak užívejte a have fun :)

Ahoj Luci! Moc diky :) těsíme se na to Tom a Reny

Awesome! Welcome to Hive guys! 🤙
I am looking forward to checking out your content, it looks very cool!!;)

Thank you so much! Excited to be here :)

Hi Reny, welcome to Hive! Sorry to have to be that guy, but how do we know this is actually you? In principle, anyone could have made this post, copied your pictures and linked your social media accounts. Hivers might have an easier time voting for your content if you can somehow show that you are the same person.

I can guarantee it´s them ;) But I will tell them to think about a way to prove it.

Edit: They just added a photo proving that it´s Reny ;) Thanks for your concern, definitely understandable with someone with such a massive fan base.

Hi there! Just updated the title picture :) I hope that will do! Thanks for the heads up.

Welcome to Hive!
Greetings from Austria!

Wao this is interesting my wife is also a teacher and she loves crafting, she's also the head of the nursery department in her working place I will recommend you to her this is her name @shollywills am sure she love to learn from your experience

Wow! Welcome to Hive. I bet the Hive community will love your cute stuff🤗

I will do my best! Thank you :)

Hi @craftingwithreny, great to have you here :) I just noticed you leaked your Private Memo Key as you entered it as a transfer memo from the exchange. Memo key is not a big deal but take care of your keys and never paste it anywhere or you could lose access to your account. I would also suggest changing the key already as anyone will be able to read encrypted "messages" sent to you.

Please take some time to get familiar with those infographics:

Have a great Hive experience!

Thanks for the heads up! I will have to follow up on this. Can it be changed? :O

By changing your Hive private owner key, you also change all your other private keys, including your private memo key. 🤗

Please be very careful with your keys (especially your private owner key and master password). 🕵️‍♂️🤗

Here are the steps to change your private keys using #PeakD:

  1. Go to your #PeakD wallet (
  2. Click on the "Change Password" tab.
  3. Click on the checkbox acknowledging that you have read the note regarding your master password and private keys.
  4. Paste the private owner key on the text field and press Enter. Please make sure the website you are on is
  5. Backup the private keys to your computer, as well to as another storage such as a USB drive and/or a password manager.
  6. Click "Update Keys". You may need to log in again to the Hive dapps (decentralized apps such as #HiveBlog) which you use to interact with Hive.

That's it! 🥳 After following the steps above, your private keys (including the memo key) have changed! 😎

Thank you very much for the help! Will check it out :)

Thanks for the appreciation of my comment! 🤗

Změnou "Master password" dojde ke změně klíčů. A s klíči je potřeba nakládat opatrně.
Není také na škodu si nastavit "Recovery account" na někoho, komu důvěřuješ. Třeba @phortun, který Ti i určitě poradí, pokud nebudeš vědět co a jak... On je zkušený Hive harcovník ;)
Případně zaskoč na český kanál na Discord...

Super to je dobre vedet, z toho UI to nebylo poznat. Mrknu na to! Díky (Tom)

There is an audience for just about anything on Hive, so welcome...

Indeed! I hope you guys will enjoy it :)

Oh my, this is something special or better still you are someone special.
We are glad to have you here with all these beautiful goodies you have brought. ❤❤❤
Greetings from Nigeria. 🌺🌻🌼💐🌸🏵🌹

Thank you! And hello to Nigeria! ❤

I'm Still 20 hours behind the line.

A pleasure to see you are taking time to see the chain.

This is fantastic. Welcome aboard @craftingwithreny and big shout out to @photorun for telling you all about Hive. Somebody with excellent engaging content like yours is going to do so well here. 3Speak would be a great thing for you to sign up for and make videos for the parents to follow on to. Wishing you all the very best on Hive and hopefully some of your 2.5 million followers come here to join us too.

No @photorun please! :D Just kidding ;)

Ha ha, the @ thing can be pretty annoying alright! :)

I don´t mind the mentions, I just wanted to say that I am "phortun", not "photorun" :)

Ah!!!! Man, that was not even a typo, but worse! Luckily the actual user @photorun is inactive now for over 3 years, otherwise they would be quite confused!

You are not the first person to mistake my name for "photorun" but I didn´t know that is name actually exists too here on Hive, interesting :D

Thanks for the welcome! What is 3Speak :D a community of some sort?

Hey, the easiest way to describe it is 3 Speak is like a decentralised Youtube where people share videos about all sorts of things. You can earn Hive as well as 3Speak tokens for your content there and you don't need millions of views for a decent return, just good content that will eventually be noticed by high HP users, as well as the many great curation teams we have here on Hive.

Ok thanks! I will check it out :)

Welcome to hive @craftingwithreny 🤝.

Thank you! :)

We are no longer happy with the way how are the major social treating creators 😟. Decreasing reaches at a whim and providing no equal ways how to make a living as content creator or protecting your intellectual property.

Yeah I can't tell you how many pages I follow on fb talking about how their reach has suddenly plummeted, even when they have a large following. It's so awful! I'm glad you have joined us here on Hive! :)

Hello! Yes its been staggering, as I have been there for many years, I can tell that the declined is real. Can't imagine starting from scratch now :( Anyway! I can't wait to start 😊

Hello Reny 😁 Welcome welcome! I see you already have big achievements on other social media and I'm so glad you found out about Hive 😃 With your experience I'm sure you will do great here 😍

I've only been here for a little more than a month so I find myself being a newbie still hehehe however, here's the links for a few posts that helped me in the beggining to understand better how to navigate here 👇 I hope you find them usefull 😊

Hello! Thanks for the welcome and the links :) I will check it out for sure!

You're welcome! I hope they help you to navigate more easily here ^^

Congrats on joining Hive. You will build a great Hive audience and bring a great audience to Hive. More impressively congrats on recognizing the need to adapt from the old ways of social media. The book Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson, is very applicable. When large influencers like yourself move to Hive, the benefit is two fold. Of course, it creates revenue for you, but also for every single one of your followers. Half of very upvote returns to the follower as Hive. I joined Hive in November, 2021 with no blockchain background. I am fortunate to work with several people in real life with more knowledge who helped me on-board to Hive. I only mention that because there is still some barrier to entrance in broad audience adoption of Hive. That's improving and I have some ideas of how to improve on-boarding. If you are open to following a group of new Hivers that may have synergy with you, check out our community HiveFive. Sorry for the long comment, but I am super excited to see you on Hive. Your content is exactly what my life partner wants to see and will probably will be the impetus for her to join Hive. @cryptocharmers

Hello! Thanks for your post! I will check the book for sure, you are right about the barrier to entry. May be there something to be done about it, I will see how it goes and what would be the best way to bring some of my fans here overtime. I have some thoughts already 😄

Ahoj, vítejte a ať to "hajvuje" :)

Ahoj! Díky moc :ú

 2 years ago  

Welcome aboard to Hive @craftingwithreny! I really enjoyed your intro and seeing all of the amazing craft ideas. From a homeschooling mother of five I appreciate people like you who share creative ideas and help us parents keep our kids active and engaged in fun ways. I’m sure the HomeEdders and the Motherhood Communities will enjoy and value your publications!

Kudos to you on so many replies and getting back to your messages. On Hive we really value those that take the time to comment/reply and interact to those who are reaching out. It doesn’t go unnoticed ;)

Have Fun, Enjoy yourself and Make yourself at home! It’s great to have you here ~

Thank you @crosheille for the welcome! I hope you will find the ideas useful, they are best with 3-8 years old 😊 And they can keep them busy for a while haha. Our daughter is 2 I can't wait to start with her soon. Anyway, thanks for the links I will check the communities for sure. I need to figure out the best channel to post my crafts. So any tips are most welcomed!

 2 years ago  

You’re welcome. 😉

My kiddos range from ages 3-11 so I will definitely be checking out your content!

For sure. When you get the time you can browse through the communities and check out their About sections. The cool thing is even though you can only post each publication in one community you can use your tags to reach more. For instance sometimes I may post in the HomeEdders Community but I use tags that are relevant to my content ie. #motherhood, #diy, #photography, #crafts etc. I make use of all 10 tags every time.

There is also a crossposting feature that you either love or hate but that also helps with reaching a variety of viewers.

That's a good tip, thanks! The tags didn't really work on other social media, so I will have to get accustomed to them.

Some already suggested that I should create my "own" category as there will easily be 10+ crafts a month, so in time it will grow + if I create something like that for my fan base it might be easier for the to get on board. Anyway, gotta think about it :D there is so much to do... and little time haha.

 2 years ago (edited) 

No problem! We like tags here and you'll quickly find out that community leaders aren't too fond when they are used incorrectly or are irrelevant to a post. I always suggest to people to make sure the tags they use fit their content.

Actually yes, I agree with that suggestion about creating your own community. We already have a DIY community but that consists of any type of diy. With your paper crafts being a specific art it would definitely be niche and could even possibly qualify to receive some support from our OCD Incubation Program. If this is something you decide to do later on feel free to get in touch with me so I can get you in the right place for the extra support ~

Until then, have fun, enjoy yourself as you get comfortable here and take it one step at a time. We aren’t going anywhere! 😄

Welcome aboard! We are happy to have you join Hive.
I’ll have to introduce my girlfriend to your blogs, because she loves crafts!

Thank you so much! I hope she will enjoy it! :-)

Uh... happy to see like this big user to take Hive up ☺👌👌👌👌🍷 I need wine and I want see more what you soon post. Also if you can look in Ecency too.... it is cool app. 👌☺🍷🍷

Thanks haha! Yes I have checked out Ecency and some other ones so I am yet to decide which one to go for :)

Oh .... I send for you also Ecency points when you in you can try use them ;)

Kind of on the same page here with @foxkoit
I enjoy using Ecency daily for points ;)
Namaste 🙏

Cool ☺👌👌👌🍷

Hey @foxkoit, here is a little bit of BEER from @iliyan90 for you. Enjoy it!

Learn how to earn FREE BEER each day by staking your BEER.

A hearty welcome to Hive!

You are already off to a roaring start!

With such an introduction, do doubt you are turning some heads. I have not seen such success off an introduction! Generally, the posts that follow cool off in value perhaps so it is best to keep expectations low and be pleasantly surprised. However, please be encouraged to follow up with your 3 times a week target! The gains on this post alone (after only 8 hours of 7 days of voting) will bring you HP and HBD that would take many average users a good couple of months to obtain!

I'll give you a follow as I have kids and craft stuff is always cool. I will be cheeky and say that I will pick up only content you post here haha!

Of course, it is massively exciting that once you have settled in, there is a chance of you attracting more people to Hive. I do not think that you need to be burdened unnecessarily with teaching those people. We have several communities with Discord groups who provide support and guidance to people who follow you here from your other platforms!

What would be great is to have a lot of them follow you here as well as collect new fans on Hive! Yes. I think you will do awesomely!


Hello Zak! Thanks for the warm welcome :) I am amazed how well the intro is doing. I was honestly not expecting that.

As this is not my first social media gig :D I know that building up audience from scratch takes a lot of time and work, so I hope I learned a thing or two over the years haha. So yes I have my expectations low and I know that consistency is the key.

Once I settle in I will for sure start to think about connecting my other social media presense to Hive and will reach out!

Thanks again

Reny :)

So what is going to be amazing on your journey here is that your audience will be growing not in number but in quality, as you can see when you check your votes, votes are not equal.

Imagine what will happen if 1000 or 100,000 or your subscribers all stick around for a year and build themselves up! Not only will their interest and votes be massively rewarding, the curation rewards alone that they would receive would ensure that your followers would be earning their own stake on the blockchain! Such is the power of Web 3.0 and why it will be such an amazing thing to cultivate year after year compared to the more traditional Web 2.0 platforms.

A warm welcome to you!

Thats some impressive numbers! Good to have you :D

Thanks for the welcome! 😊


Thank you 😀

Hmm... Written four days ago and already have big numbers.
I'm not sure I've come across you on YouTube but any crafter/creator is a welcome addition to hive.

Knock knock...

Hello and thanks for the welcome :)

Vítej, ať se Ti tu líbí a daří, těším se na další příspěvky.

Zdravím! Děkuju moc a omlouvám se za pozdní reakci 😁 bylo toho hodně.

As the mother of a young child who is just getting into paper crafts I am happy to have come across you on this platform. Look forward to seeing your work and trying it out with him. Welcome to hive!

Thank you! I am sure you will enjoy it together! :)

Hello! Glad to have you here sharing content!

wow what an entrance in our beautiful hive community. i hipe you check the works of mu daughter @creatisa who was active years ago.

Thank you! I will check it out for sure :)

This is awesome!!!

Indeed! Thanks for the welcome :D

Pretty damn good reception for your first post! I think you'll find that hive & 2nd layer tribes are superior to the centralized services that your accustomed to using in the past.

I hope you let the community that's formed around you know about hive as much as possible going forward and I hope after you see your success here that you will encourage your fellow content creators to move over here aswell!

Here is a compilation of useful links I put together for new folks.

Yes! I am super excited - and it was not expected at all! Thank you for the link I will check it out for sure.

I plan to keep my community informed once I settle in a bit :)

Thanks again!

Thanks for giving hive a chance!

Vítej (vlastně oba) na Hive!
Doufám, že se vám tu bude líbit 👍

Moc děkujem! 😀

Hello we are the 3SSkaters we arrived on the platform just a week ago. Our youtube channel has over 2.5 million subscribers. We have a USA Channel with over 60,000 subscribers. And now we've arrived at PeakD! Its content is excellent. Go on! 3S team hugs!

Ow hello! I will check it out for sure :) thanks for the welcome guys!

Cool, maybe if it becomes successful here you could set up your own tribe and currency, show the people how its done, show them the future.

Thanks! Well that's amazing how many possibilities it has! Can't want to explore :)

Welcome, great to have you here ! Sounds like you should create your own community (that's a feature on hive) once you familiarize yourself enough with the platform !

Hello and thanks ❤ I will have to explore that it sounds intriguing! Gotta ask @phortun how to do that. 👌

with your follower base you can do amazing things here, like linking your website for your community to post the crafts they make from your books. Create your own token to reward them and more... welcome, enjoy very much

Welcome to Hive Reny! And great to see that @phortun is bringing his friends in board. Hope you have fun here like others enjoy your creative tutorials!

Thanks for the warm welcome! :)

This are really beautiful and would be fun for the the student

Thank you! :)

Haha nice and a warm welcome here miss craftycraft.
