We are 1 year old today!!!
Bring on the smash cake!!!
Wow! It's been a year already?!? It's crazy! This past year has been a wild ride for this dude for sure. The 18th will mark my 1 year leaving my 8 year career with Apple and venturing off into my own little hustling world, and I will never look back!
Starting Hivelist was a journey that I didn't think would take me to where it has, and we really haven't gotten going yet! It's been a wild ride trying to learn, as a non coder, how to use the tools I know, Wordpress, and blend it with Hive. Well after finding some really helpful resources, I was able to get to work on building my own project for the blockchain.
I have always been a bit of a hustler, so I figured my best way would be to get going on an ecommerce platform that hadn't really been done for the community yet. This was actually something I was considering with STEEM, but we forked before I could really make it a reality.
Allot of the foundational building has been trial and error for the most part, which actually led to the creation of the Hivelist token (LIST) and the Hive-Engine front end. Wordpress wasn't quite getting what I needed and realized quickly that I was going to be a necessity to have the front end. So I just figured out how to blend the best of both worlds so that I can have a custom Hive front end, that ties into our own front end on the blockchain. Now, we have our own working front end that is fully funded on the Hive Engine side!
The Hivelist store has been a bit of an evolution as well. You will know if you have watched the progression. I have always had the dream of becoming the 'Amazon' of the blockchain, and we are working our way to doing that! We opened our store to vendors last month and have brought on a few now, but it's still early. Now that everything is pretty much built, I can get to focusing on some actual marketing outside of the Hive echo-chamber.
To celebrate our 1st birthday, instead of lighting a candle to blow out, we burned 1 Million LIST Tokens! I think that will become a thing, lol. So next year instead of 2 candles, we will burn 2 Million tokens... sounds like a good idea, 3 the next year, and so forth....
Just to show some proof of the burn!
Anyway, I am super grateful for my supporting community! If it were not for you guys, this wouldn't have all come to fruition! So now that we are established, and have a solid foundation built, let's get to marketing this thing!
So I am going to throw the shill part of this post, lol... Become an affiliate of the Hivelist.store and earn 3% of each sale that processes through our store! External or affiliate products don't count. This percentage comes out of the 5% sales fee charged per sale by the Hivelist store, you are getting a direct cut of our profits!

So hustlers, what are you going to do in this next year? Let's get to hustlin' and build the value of these communities!
I am tagging my wonderful LIST Staking Club in this so you guys make sure you are included in the celebration! Again, if it weren't for your support, none of this could happen!
