Thanks @getonthetrain! I really appreciate your support. It's getting votes, but not any real payout yet. We'll see what happens.

Unfortunately my vote is still not worth a full cent yet. And I have powered up and haven't taken any money out!

haha, me too! Otherwise I'd vote up all my posts by more than a few pennies!!
I have only powered up so far as well. Even when I do a charity post, I just cash out of other cryptos or use funds I have and power up what I get here. I bought a bit of Steem too, to get started. Unfortunately, I should have waited until these levels, then I'd have a whole lot more. But that's the way it goes!
