I just clocked out from work for the day and thought what's next? Blogging immediately came to mind. I haven't posted for a while now which is an irony of being on community quarantine. Ain't I supposed to have more time being locked at home? Not really...

Anyway, I got to collect my thoughts on what topic to write about. While that is in progress, my fingers switched my browser to my wallet and realized, first day of the month was pegged as Steem power up day. It is SPUD today! So let's go...

I have been powering up before but haven't got much chance to join the crowd during first day of the month. I think I was able to do it only once before. That was because of the timing of Steem price. When I buy Steem, I can not keep them as liquid just waiting for the first day of the month to come while I should already be earning from them by powering up.

This time, I did not buy Steem but I have earned significant amount from rewards. I used to keep liquid asset in my wallet however today, my mind asked me what am I leaving the liquid asset for? I don't have an answer. While 300+ Steem may be a small amount, it will certainly help on the compounding of my curation rewards. After all, my wallet started with nothing on Steem.

Steem price may be low at this point. Others may say power down and cut your loses. Of course, there is no question for those who need to withdraw. This is also a good time to invest if you can. So if you got spare, join in and power up!* Who knows, April fools' day may bring all the good vibes that you're looking for. 😊

So what is it with first of April that it is called fools' day? With all the virus scare out there, let's have a little trivia here. Something to divert the quarantine mood.

April Fools' Day or April Fool's Day (sometimes called All Fools' Day) is an annual custom on April 1 consisting of practical jokes and hoaxes. Jokesters often expose their actions by shouting "April fools" at the recipient. Mass media can be involved in these pranks, which may be revealed as such the following day. The day is not a public holiday in any country except Odessa in Ukraine, where the first of April is an official city holiday.[1] The custom of setting aside a day for playing harmless pranks upon one's neighbor has been relatively common in the world historically.[2]

My trivia has taught me something. It is amusing to know that a place has first of April as their official holiday. It is not clear though if it is to celebrate fooling around. Maybe someone can shed a light to that?

Joking aside, I hope everyone has a great start of the month! May this month be the end of the global scare that is locking the world.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!

Ang Lupit ni ma'am congrats ma'am more steem power soon

Thanks a lot. Yap, more Steem power to us. Kasama ka! 😊

I am still confused whether to stay with steemit power up , power down i am actually powering down but i am thinking of cancelling the power down and carry on with steemit i still believe there will be some good staying on with steemit :)

I do not see anything wrong in staying on Steemit. It has its own uniqueness as compared to Hive. I was concerned about the take-over of witnesses before but that does not mean that I will walk out. Yes, I think there are still good people staying.

It is up to you if you want to maintain two accounts between Steemit and Hiveoe pick just one of them. The only challenge that I see for myself is having the time to cross-post between the two platforms but that also means double earning so it is still good. 😊

This is true most people that have moved to @hive are saying @steemit is dead but i still see them posting on @steemit wtf ??? Anyway i think i will continue with both if the double earning sound good to me for as long as it last :)

Thanks for your input my friend. Stay safe and distant :)

wtf ???

😂

Yeah, right. Those who spoke as if Steemit has turned ghost town is still earning from it. It is like eating what you vomited.

The streets at the moment are more of a ghost town them Steemit...lol :)
