The first major Taipei Steemit Meet-up 第一次Steemit台北大型聚會

這篇文章是關於Steemit社群平台的一次面對面的聚會。如果你還不知道什麼是Steemit,可以看一下我寫的一篇介紹文「點讚就可以賺錢?有這麼好康的事情嗎?」。undefined

這次聚會是台灣用戶的第一次線下聚會,正如我在那篇介紹文所說,Steemit的性質介於部落格及臉書之間,所以用戶們很容易就可以在平台上互動交朋友,因此雖然是我們的第一次聚會,大家都好像已經互相有一定程度瞭解的朋友了。在那篇介紹文中我有提到有些作者寫一篇文章就可以得到500美金以上的點讚收益,這篇聚會文就拿到超過500美金的收入喔!當然,我並不是每篇文章都可以有這麼好的收入的,這篇聚會文剛好寫到了大家有興趣的主題,所以收到的點讚數比較高。如果你也想寫文章賺錢,可以來Steemit試試喔!

💝前言 Introduction 💝

期待已久的第一次Steemit台北大型聚會終於敲開序幕。Steemit在世界各地逐漸發展成會員關係緊密的社群團體,大家雖然在網路上認識,但是經由文章的交流成為談得來的好朋友,因此各個地區的聚會不斷舉辦。光是亞洲地區就有香港、上海、韓國、印尼、菲律賓等地的聚會。

這次的台北聚會籌備已久,終於確定我們訂製的Steemit T恤製作完成,從一個星期前,台灣的Steemit用戶們就蠢蠢欲動,止不住的興奮情緒逐漸蔓延開來,到了今天,興奮的情緒有了出口,終於要跟這群網路上相知相惜的好朋友面對面話家常了。

This weekend we held our first major Taipei Steemit meetup, attended by 10 Steemians. Steemit has developed into a close-knit community linking people from all walks of life around the world. We know a lot about one another through our posts, but meeting in person is not always easy. Despite that, quite a few locations around the world have already met up, and in Asia alone, there have been meet-ups in places such as at Hong Kong, Shanghai, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia etc.great02.gif

The planning for our meetup started a few weeks ago when our resident designer @catwomanteresa designed our Steemit t-shirts. When the t-shirts were delivered, we were all very excited as it was finally time for our meetup.cute05.gif

Teresa有幸代表大家執筆寫這次的聚會文,英文部分由 @livinguktaiwan 撰寫。照片及影片由 @shieha  @sweetsssj  @catwomanteresa提供

💝神秘嘉賓 Mystery Guest💝

這次的聚會,我們有個超級神秘嘉賓,大家都非常喜愛的甜心妹妹恰巧趕上我們聚會的時間來到台北旅遊,當然要來跟眾多粉絲見見面啦!(說到這裡,大家當然要掌聲迎接,歡呼尖叫聲也不嫌多)

說是神祕嘉賓,據說已經有碎嘴W把消息大喇叭放送出去了。我才明白,人緣這麼好的秘密原來是拿消息來換人情哪!嘖嘖~despise02.gif

To mark this special occasion, we wanted to give you guys a surprise, so invited a mystery guest to join us. Can you guess who that is? Drum roll please ….. please give a big round of applause and welcome the lovely @sweetsssj !!! happy05.gif

Although this was supposed to be a surprise, a certain W member had leaked the news to some other Steemians, now we know why he is so popular on Steemit!

瞧瞧這群男生!臉上藏不住心底的小鹿亂撞哪!

Look at the guys in the photo, they all look so cool and calm now, but you should have seen them when @sweetsssj arrived.

據說甜心妹妹第一次的線下聚會就獻給了台灣聚會了,何其榮幸哪!得以與可愛的甜心妹妹同桌聊天,連我這個姊字輩的都覺得無比興奮,也難怪男士們開心到無法自持。got-you03.gif

This meet-up was a first for everyone including our mystery guest, but it felt like we had all known each other for ages and hit off immediately. Since you couldn’t be here with us, let me introduce you to everyone and share some special moments with you.

💝台灣區第一美女The legendary Dean Beauty💝

scissor.gif
 
除了我們的神祕嘉賓之外,萬眾矚目的應該是從上次4人微型聚會之後大家就敲碗期待的劉美女 @deanliu 廬山真面目。今天就為大家揭曉吧!

Those who read about our last mini Taiwan meetup would have noticed that our legendary Dean Beauty @deanliu wasn’t there and want to meet him/her this time. In the past, many have asked is Dean a he? Or is it short for Deanie, a her? Ok, let me reveal Dean Beauty’s true identity now, another round of drum roll please …..

Dean01.jpg
 

什麼?! 我耍你們!冤枉呀!cry02.gif
從T恤訂製時,劉美女訂的就是一件五歲小孩的衣服。你問一個五歲小孩怎麼能寫出這麼多詞藻優美情感豐富的文章?你們是沒看過名偵探柯南嗎?小孩子的潛力不容小覷啊!sinister01.gif
劉美女是男是女尚且撲朔迷離,這下連年紀都成謎了!
不能怪我啊!台灣第一美女的稱號可不是浪得虛名,哪能那麼容易讓你們一睹芳容?cool.gif

 

No, I’m not kidding you guys! NO01.gif
When we were organizing our t-shirts, Dean Beauty ordered a child’s size t-shirt. We were all a bit confused as to how come a child could write so many great posts and offer profound advice to us newbies on Steemit. Dean Beauty really liked to keep us in suspense with his/her real identity!
So Dean Beauty’s real identity still remains a mystery to everyone! confuse01.gif
And don’t blame me. Our legendary Dean Beauty isn’t called a legend for no reason, he/she doesn’t easily grace everyone with an audience! NO04.gif

 

💝實況轉播 Live Broadcast💝

兩位重量級人物介紹完畢,接下來就跟著Teresa來參加今天熱鬧的台灣聚會吧!

Now I’ve introduced you to our two master Steemians, let’s move onto our actual meetup.  continue.gif

我們這次聚會的地點是信義誠品地下1樓的金色三麥,這家餐廳的特色是自家釀製的啤酒,甚至餐點都會以啤酒入菜。環境裝潢是歐式磚牆加上水晶吊燈,採用半開放的隔間,營造出酒吧輕鬆的氣氛,非常適合聚餐聊天,大聲談笑都不會被鄰桌白眼。despise01.gif

Our meetup venue was at Le Ble D’Or at Eslite Xinyi Store in Taipei. This restaurant is famous for brewing its own beer, and I think it had quite a German/Alps feel inside. The waiters were dressed in traditional costumes from the region, or at least that’s what I think they looked like. It’s a fantastic place for gatherings like ours, and nobody seemed to mind when we got a bit over excited and rowdy.

scissor.gif
台灣用戶裡面有幾位專業吃貨,所以餐點的部分我就不在此贅述,說不定沒多久大家就會被金色三麥的吃吃文淹沒。
不要怪我沒有給大家福利,這裏我還是先po一張照片讓大家先解解饞。

Our group has a couple of gourmet experts, so I’m not going to share a lot of food photos with you here, but here’s a taster.

啤酒是金色三麥的特色,當然要來上一杯。嗯….. 這也….. 太大杯了吧?cheers01.gif

And cheers!!! Hurry up and take the photos please, the glass is really heavy!!!

💝甜心專訪 Interview with Sweetsssj💝

@wilkinshui 兩杯黃湯下肚,開始發揮搞笑本性,硬拉著Sweet做專訪

After a few rounds, our resident reporter @wilkinshui wanted to do an interview with @sweetsssj. Personally, I think he did a pretty lousy job!drunk.gif

💝台北社群聚會的成員 Introducing our attendees💝

scissor.gif
這次參加台北聚會的成員來自世界各地,大部份的成員都有不錯的英文底子,可以撰寫雙語的文章,與世界各地Steemit會員進行很好的溝通。

今天參加聚會的10位成員中,就有3位是reputation >70的資深社員,多謝他們帶領著新人們一起成長。thank04.gif

All of us come from a diverse and cosmopolitan background, and many of us post bilingual in Chinese and English, helping to bridge the CN community with the rest of the non-Chinese speaking Steemit community.
Furthermore, out of the 10 of us, 3 have a reputation of over 70. That’s quite something on Steemit, so thanks guys for looking after us minnows.

大家從video可以看到Teresa神經大條的一面,攝影機對著我時,我還是把補光燈對著別人。沒辦法,我就是這麼一個照亮別人犧牲自己的人(噁~)throwout.gif
Before I introduce each of us, let me show you this video first so you will know who is who. By the way, please don’t mind Teresa, she’s had a few and is a bit excited, I really had difficulty controlling her!

@ygern 他來自馬來西亞,在台灣結束了研究生的身份之後,就留在台灣開創自己的另一段人生,現在主要從事英文翻譯的工作。看起來靦腆不多話的他,寫起文章感情細膩且有敏銳的觀察力,非常值得大家去他的部落格挖寶。

@ygern is from Malaysia, he came here to study his Masters, then decided he liked it here so much that he didn’t want to go home. He used to work in publishing and is currently freelancing as a translator (aka Watching The Games of Thrones when he’s supposed to be working). Ygern has great insight into a wide range of topics, and this is reflected in the quality of his posts. great03.gif

@Wilkinshui 他來自香港,根據他的說法,他是全公司最自由的人。通常公司除了老闆之外,還有誰有這樣的特別待遇呢?難道是…… 老闆的小三?難怪要千里迢迢離開香港留在異鄉工作,辛苦哂你~ comfort.gif

哈哈!開玩笑啦!誰叫你寫那麼多吃吃文,讓人以為你從早到晚都在吃。不過除了吃之外,Wilkin對於虛擬貨幣可是很有自己看法的,大家可以從他的文章中學到很多相關知識。

他是唯一在自我介紹時自帶掌聲的人,而大家也都著魔般跟著鼓掌。擁有這種自帶光環的影響力,難怪當天被甜心妹妹稱讚是最佳娛樂節目主持人。

@wilkinshui is from Hong Kong. If you know him already, you probably know what he is (really) like, and if you don’t know him, well … don’t is my advice! Just kidding, he offers some great advice and insight into cryptocurrency and great eateries around Taipei, so do check him out.
During our self-introduction icebreaker round, he was the only person who shamelessly gave himself a round of applause, and we all naturally followed suit, you should have seen the smug on his face when he succeeded in getting a round of applause from everyone.

scissor.gif
undefined@azazqwe 大家可以叫他Pettren。他目前在家中開的畫廊工作,所以我們都戲稱他「富二代」。
由於在畫廊工作累積的知識,他早期寫了不少名畫的評論,有興趣的朋友可以去看看。

@azazqwe created his Steemit ID because he said it was easy to type with one hand on the keyboard (now you’re all checking your keyboard aren’t you?). Honestly? How lazy can one get?

Pettren currently works in his family owned art gallery, check out his post if you are an art lover.

scissor.gif
 

undefined@shieha 他叫Aaron,是這次台北聚會中第三個重量級人物。Aaron從小就移民到加拿大,直到大學畢業才回到台灣工作。在Steemit,Aaron是大師級的攝影達人,他所分享的攝影作品經常令人讚嘆他的美感與創意。沒見面完全沒有料到原來年紀這麼輕,真是後生可畏。 great01.gif

@shieha is Aaron and is our third master Steemians with over 70 reputation.
He grew up in Canada and came back to Taiwan after graduating from university.
To say photography is Aaron’s hobby is a bit of an understatement, his works on Steemit is definitely at a professional level. If you haven’t seen his works, I urge to go there now
(not now now, but after you finished reading this post).

@livinguktaiwan 她本名叫Pauline,從小在英國長大。現在在台灣過著暫時退休的生活,閒時寫寫Steemit文章,跟大家分享到世界各地旅遊的奇聞軼事。Pauline說退休好像感覺很老,她只是暫時休息不工作。天知道,我多希望這麼年輕就可以退休不用工作。 like02.gif

@livinguktaiwan that’s me, Pauline. I’m a BBC (British Born Chinese) and come from England. I have previously worked in Hong Kong for a period of time, as well as a long time in London. Last year I decided to take a career break and moved to Taiwan, hence my site name living-uk-taiwan. I blog about my travels, and snippets of my life in both UK and Taiwan. (Advert time) Please visit @livinguktaiwan. Please visit @livinguktaiwan. Please visit @livinguktaiwan.

 

@lydiachan 她是在CN區相當受到大家喜愛的鄰家妹子,獨特的魅力讓她跟每個人都感覺像認識很久的好朋友。她的文章帶著大家吃遍玩遍台灣各個角落,想要挖掘台灣不為人知的美麗,跟著她就對了。
Lydia自稱是個平凡的上班族,不過我們發現她跟 @wilkinshui 一樣,上班非常輕鬆自在,他們兩個的公司大概是台灣最有人性的兩間公司了。
嘿!你們公司要是還有涼缺記得通知一下。(喔!說錯了,不是涼缺,是「肥」涼缺!)

@lydiachan is the girl from next door who everybody adores, everyone who has met her (physically or virtually) immediately warms to her. Her posts take you around Taiwan, so if you’re looking to eat and play in Taiwan, you know whose site to go to now. Lydia likes to compete in different Steemit challenges, but since her specialty is in procrastination so sometimes its a bit of a hit and miss.

 

@catwomanteresa 就是小妹在下我啦!我的正職工作是電腦動畫師,之前在美國修電腦動畫的碩士。我的主頁上的橫幅,就是我多年前曾經得獎的3D電腦繪圖作品喔!

(某某:你怎麼偷打廣告? 貓女:這是我寫聚會文的特權,不服氣咬我啊!)face.gif

我的文章除了介紹美食旅遊之外,還希望能跟大家分享很多生活上的小撇步,以及將我的專業知識用最淺顯的方式分享給大家,讓大家也能學到一些可以簡單運用的實用技巧。

@catwomanteresa is Teresa, you’ve probably figured out by now she’s a cat lover. Teresa is a computer animator and studied her Masters in computer animation in the States. She designed our Steemit t-shirt and all the amazing graphics in this post. Also, do check out her award-winning graphics on her site.
(Did I mention Teresa and I volunteered to write-up this post so we could get more airtime to promote our site? Please visit @livinguktaiwan )
Apart from blogging about her foodies and travel journeys, Teresa often posts great tips on how to make simple graphics that you can use on your site.

@honeybee 這位帥哥對於台北的Steemit用戶們來說是個新朋友,他叫Alvin,是甜心在英國的同學,在Steemit活躍於英文區,所以CN區的大家對他比較陌生。
不過我想經過這次的聚會,他應該會比較常來CN區走走逛逛。
Alvin對於虛擬幣的投資有相當成熟的見解與投資經驗,經過今天的聚會,大家已經迫不急待排隊要私下跟他約時間討教了。

Last and not the least is @honeybee, Alvin. He is from the States and is currently living in Taipei. He normally posts in English but said now he’s going to hang around the CN community more.
Alvin is a bit of an expert on cryptocurrency and investment, seems like @wilkinshui has a new buddy.

 

💝未來的展望 Future outlook 💝

這次的聚會時間長達5小時,聊到都忘了時間。不要以為大家只是閒嗑牙,我們還聊到了一些台灣區及Steemit平台未來的發展。例如有人提到可以到大學校園或年輕人較常出沒的地區去推廣Steemit等。

其中最令我動容的是Alvin提到很多非洲或其他發展中國家的用戶,費盡千辛萬苦上網寫了文章,只要能得到1~2塊美金,就是他們很重要的生活來源,因此他們特別珍惜感恩。break02.gif

而相較其他生活水平較高的國家,一篇文章得到50Steem的收益,可能還覺得太少不屑一顧。若是我們能分些精力照顧點讚這些用戶中的優質文章,他們從Steemit上面就可以賺到全家溫飽,如此一來一定可以吸引更多用戶來加入。 Steemit的總用戶若能超過百萬以上,應該可以順利引起關注,吸引廣告主挹注,到時Steemit的幣值更容易可以風生水起,相信這是大家所樂見的。happy04.gif

Teresa決定從今天起要去非洲散播歡樂散播愛啦!哈哈!其實就是舉手之勞,點個讚幫幫這些需要幫助的人。happy02.gif

Our meetup lasted throughout the whole afternoon as we had so much to talk about including ideas on how to help develop Steemit. The UK team led by @stephenkendal are doing a great job in promoting Steemit at universities and around the UK, maybe the CN community can do the same very soon.
Another thing that we could look to do is to help upvote Steemians from the developing countries, as a couple of $ for their post would mean a lot to them and help out their families.
Compared to Steemians from the more developed countries, they may not think much of say 50 Steem for a post. So if we could focus on quality posts from Steemians in developing countries we could hopefully help to grow Steemit exponentially, making this a better community for everyone.happy.gif
Teresa said starting today she’s going to Africa to spread the love. Hey guys, can you see the halo above her?

另外,我們還討論了以後可以安排合作發文的點子,透過共同主題發文的方式,人氣高的前輩拉抬尚未受到關注的新人,讓大家能夠快點在Steemit站穩腳步,再吸引更多的用戶來Steemit一起共同成長。雖然還有些技術上的問題需要克服,但是大家有了初步的共識要共同解決,希望很快就能看到我們有好的合作點子推出,敬請期待。Wecandoit.gif

We also discussed the possibilities of co-operative postings, how the experienced Steemians can help newbies find their feet in this complex world, and basically growing Steemit. There are technical issues that need to be resolved first, but I think we’re on a good start here. Watch this space.happy01.gif
