Sept 27 - Steemit Ramble - Notes on My Favourite Reads
Well, it’s day 22 of my 30 day challenge and yesterday I reached 200 followers by the time I post this I should be passing 700 posts. It was just a couple of weeks ago I passed the 100 follower mark. Steemstats.com shows my reputation as 58 while Steemit still has it at 57. I’m guessing I’m pretty close to 58 as I was 57.9 on Steemstats yesterday. Steady progress. I’m building a base here on Steemit.
I started from nothing, stumbled around and then started to build. I’ll keep building because I believe Steemit is around for a long time to come and I want to be part of it.
When I first started on here I saw a fairly narrow range of posts. Now I’m seeing a much wider range and I think it will just keep growing.
I caught most of Ned’s talk on the radio over the weekend. Heard him talk about a Russian version of Steemit preparing to get underway. That is great. Hopefully other languages will follow. That will give people who struggle with English a way to express themselves in their mother tongue. It will also create opportunity for those who are bi or multilingual.
Onward to today’s rambling
@darkminded153 writes an interesting piece about thinking, reason and the contrast between thinkers who engage in reason and those who simply don’t think anything through, they just join the hive and whatever dominant reasoning becomes their own. No pun intended, but reading worth thinking about.
@tanata writes one of the best cat food recipes I’ve seen. Like our own food, cat food contains many fillers and preservatives that are not good for them or us. Being able to take the time to prepare good quality food is good for everyone.
@furion posts about a project that is in development to create the YouTube of the blockchain with a similar income stream as Steemit. Although, the income any video on SteemQ makes wont be shown to the casual user for a variety of reasons that is detailed in the post.
I’m not big on videos but I know a lot of people are, so this is a great addition to the blockchain for those who have the talent for producing and promoting videos. The day needs to come that I start working on learning how, but for now, I’ll stick to writing.
Interesting post by @whatsup on his perspective of being a minnow on Steemit and how those experiences can and would impact the user experience of people just trying out the site. I could relate to a lot of what he posted and, especially non-techie people would likely find that their experience.
@donkeypong writes a very comprehensive piece about the number 13 and the unlucky mystic it has held over the centuries.
We all have that time when we need to let go. It could be of a person, a job, a situation, an issue… things that are holding us back in life and we need to let go, put them in the past and move on. It can be heartwrenching but necessary.
@annaguzc writes a brutally honest piece about her quest to let go of a bad relationship. She had to grieve the lost of the good points and embrace the departure of the bad points. Situations we can all relate to.
We get out of anything pretty much what we put into it. This is true of Steemit, but to know what we could get out of Steemit, we first need to know why we’re here. @dmitriybtc writes a good piece looking at the various reasons to be on Steemit. Good reading.
Great post letting us know about an update to the tool SteemValue. Great site easy to use to find out the value of various currencies. I’ve requested the addition of Canadian dollars… I’m a bit biased that way :)
Well, I wrote about the start of this project yesterday and already they have posted their first challenge. There is a list of whales who have come onboard to take part supporting the project. Great stuff. I am mulling over a possible post to take part. Will need to give it some thought. It will mean showing more of myself than I normally do. How about you? You taking part?
Everything develops it’s own slang and terminology. It’s not always easy to catch onto and understand. @stellabelle writes an excellent glossary of what is used on Steemit and if she’s missed anything. She invites you to add it in the comments. So don’t forget to read the comments.
Wrap-up for Day 22
Another day with a great variety of posts to read. I love variety. I get bored if there is too much of the same thing even if some topics interest me more than others. I planned on having all day to write tomorrow but got a last minute call to cover the bar. So, guess where I’ll be tomorrow? LOL
Supporting and Upvoting
Let’s not forget folks. I’m sharing these posts not only because I like them. I’d really like to see them get support and upvoting. I know some of the posts have done okay by the time I post my ramble, but some really could use the support and upvoting.
Subscribing to My Posts
In addition to following me on Steemit, which I really appreciate. If you want to be sure to know about every post, you can subscribe at my other blog. I’ll send you an email when I post.
