Heads or Tails?

Small change counts.

Welcome to this weeks Drop in the Ocean roundup, bringing you all the great posts shared on Mondays show.

The topic for this weeks show was Change, we were joined by a few new people which were a nice change and we also introduced a small change to how we will be approaching the show by sharing related posts we found as inspiration on Steem.

What did not change is the fact that we got to hear everyone's perspectives on the topic as they shared with us their #dropintheocean post on change.

Let us now move over to the posts for this week as we dive right into Drop in the Ocean.

The votes have been rolling in from the attendees of the show and we have the posts ready to share with you all.

The top two voted writers will 'level up'. When a member has leveled up, they will receive a daily upvote from the BuddyUP account at 50%. The member keeps their level for 2 weeks unless they level up again on DITO within those 2 weeks. Every time you level up, you will receive an additional 10% on your daily vote, maxing out at level 5.

The writer with the most votes will be resteemed straight after this post. This is so we can all look back at the BuddyUP blog and see the winning posts from each week.

And the winners are...

Voting on the Drop in the Ocean posts has been opened to now allow every @BuddyUP member to cast their vote, instead of only those who attended. With all the votes in for this weeks Drop in the Ocean posts, we are happy to present the two who will level up this week.

If you are wondering how you can join the Drop in the Ocean show, you will find all the required information at the bottom of this post.

Now, let's find out who gains a level this week...


We all see change a bit differently, but also very similar, responding to it in a myriad of ways most basic of which we either fear or embrace it.

Change is many things at once. Change is complicated, natural, scary, and easy.

Doing a great job of showcasing change in all its forms, @Bluefinstudios takes us through his perspective on the necessity of change.

Change is all things, feared,
we love what we're doing...
Anything new is not comfortable.

A great perspective on change, taking us from the global scope right through to his own personal attitude on the topic. Be sure to read and comment on his post here - Change - In All Flavors


The great @Shadowspub joined us in Drop in the Ocean this week, coming prepared with an insightful post on the topic of change.

She talks about her cats and the habits they have developed, saying that it is simpler for her to accommodate this than to deal with their antics. There is a lot to be related to their behavior in comparison to how we are when it comes to change.

People aren’t much different when it comes to change. We know at an intellectual level that change is normal and necessary for growth, personal and communal.

It gets really interesting when there is a desire for change but no vision behind it. People get restless with the status quo and want change.

There comes a point where we all feel the need for change, at times it is within ourselves but more often it is a change we desire at work, in our community, or the world at large. @Shadowspub goes on to share her thoughts on the fact that some of us wish for change, but can't give form to the changes we wish to see.
