Catch A Whale . COM is Back Online! With More To Come... & Some Sad News.steemCreated with Sketch.

in catchawhale •  3 years ago  (edited)

I have finally got enough time (barely) to get back online. There is a lot I want to do with the site to improve upon its usability but sadly I don't have the time just yet. I was surprised and honored to hear during SteemFest that so many of you are using the website, I hadn't thought it to be so popular! So believe me I wanted to get it back up and running as soon as possible, so sorry for those who have been waiting for me to do so.

One of the main reasons that I have been noticeably absent this past week or so on Steemit was because I was dealing with the death of a life long family friend just after returning from Amsterdam (I have been a little beside myself). She was my mothers best friend since childhood and I knew her my entire life, a truly amazing person, so it has been a very sad week for my family and I. She was flighting Leukemia for over 8 years and her body just couldn't take it anymore but damn did she fight, she was an extremely tough person. She will be missed!

I will be getting back into the swing of these hopefully in the upcoming weeks. I will also try and get those posts up which I missed "SPC - By The Numbers" (one of my personal favorite to do) as soon as i can!

Sorry to hear about your friend. I just lost my mother and was also absent for quite a while. Welcome back! You're a big asset here!

@kus-knee (The Old Dog)

I'm very sorry for both of your losses @blueorgy and @kus-knee.

Thanks Guys, and sorry to hear about your mother @kus-knee that must be tough :(, wish you all the best

Sorry for your loss.
But great to hear that you're back, and good job with catchawhale in general, it's a statistic site I like to check often and I'd actually missed it!

Still surprised by how many people missed it :), I will be getting a better version up soon as well , more statistics ;)

Hey @blueorgy- which time zone does this website reference?

UTC timezone. Thanks for the heads up! I forgot all about adding that info to the site.

hey man, love your catch a whale website! Used it all the time before it went offline.

Sorry about what your going through right now. I've been dealing with the same stuff several months ago before steemfest started. It was hard for me to accept and it still partially is but for some reason life continues on.

If there is anything I can do for you or if you ever want to talk about it let me know. Would be happy with either. Hit me up on the steemit chat to let me know. Sending love your way!

Thanks, and thanks for the kind words, will do

Oh that's sad, I hope you'll make it. Thx for bringing the catchawhale back to life! All the best my friend - just steem on, here are many friends around ;-)

I'm sorry for your loss.
Thank you for your hard work around here, it has been seen on the What is your witness, I will vote for you.

So sorry for your lose. I wish her well on her journey...

Thank you

Sorry to hear about your family's loss. She must have been incredibly strong - fighting Leukemia for more than 8 years.

Thoughts are with you!

Thanks Wade, she was defiantly beyond strong, most would have given up long before and even until the end she was still fighting.

Hey @blueorgy, looks like we both were facing the same kind of unhappy event right in the middle of SteemFest or after it.
All my thoughts going to you, both families and your friend's soul.
Take care!

Welcome back blueorgy and catchawhale!

Thank you @everlove <3! And glad I could get it back up for you :)

Thanks for all you do! I'm grateful for what you bring.
Peace be with you - sending love and light! 💛

Sorry to hear about your loss blue, take whatever time you need to mourn and heal :(

Its not urgent at all, but just in case you weren't aware theres a problem with SSL on steemimg at the moment.

It probably doesn't happen for everyone, it could just be my paranoid browser security settings - but just fyi I get :

When loading: this url

With this user agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:49.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0

Yes, still have to get that figured out, not just you, just use http instead of https and you should be good

I thought I would drop by and see what you have been up to and found this news. I am sorry for your loss.

I appreciate the work you do on here to help all of us, even us newbs LOL!!

Have a nice day.

So sorry to hear about your loss.. May she rest in peace...
And very happy to hear your back! 😉 And about catch a whale!
Thanks for the update ! Steeming on! ♨🖒👍♨

Thank You :)

amen sister!
