Good day fellow Steemians!

I'm glad to be here with you and your community. I've always been interested in blogging about all sorts of things, but I just haven't gotten around to doing it regularly. I've never taken the big plunge until now. My areas of focus are life, family & relationships, energy production, etc.

Personal Bio

I've seen some articles that added personal statistics, so I'll add some of my own. My name is Felix Martinez, and my Steem handle is @scholaris. I'm married to the love of my life and mother to two beautiful boys (it's the same woman). I spent just under ten years in the Navy, but since leaving, I have a career in chemistry and radiation health, focusing on energy production. We live in California, but we plan on moving towards the East Coast due to my company's plan for shutdown in the mid-2020s. Yep, I'm giving up constant sunshine, but it's for my family, and as long as we're together, we'll be just fine.

Military Service

The Navy decommissioned the submarine I served on after 30 years of service. Check it out in the link below. When I first reported to the ship, I had to sleep beneath torpedos. After a couple of years, I was able to get my own assigned coffin for sleep. Fast attack submarines are a tight fit. The submariner life is one that few know, but it gave me the training I needed to move forward.

Aboard the USS Albuquerque - Decommissioning


It's a form of stress relief for me. I get to write down what I think and then go through the frustrating task of grammar checking without punching myself in the face. I have some articles published in Vocal. Media, but I don't have any steady work in blogging Vocal.Media. Hopefully, that will change. I am very new to cryptocurrency and Steem, so I look forward to learning.

In Closing

I'm glad to be a part of this community. I look forward to communicating with everyone. Happy Holidays! I love responding to comments, good or bad, so I look forward to yours below. Feel free to contact me at any time @scholaris. I'd love to hear from everyone in the comment threads.

Greetings, and thank you for your support. I initially didn't have enough SP to respond as I didn't know that much about the platform when I became active about 20 days ago. So far, I'm enjoying the platform and learning how to blog.

Welcome to the Steemit community @scholaris!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Eight suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and only publish with the posting key,
  2. Use your active key only for wallet transactions, keychain and steemconnect,
  3. The master password is only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; copy and store offline,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit,
    be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once, and
  7. When you open your, in the upper right corner of the page there are 3 bars. Click on those, and then on the "welcome", and you will get a lot of reading material that will help you.
  8. Do NOT open any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @xcountytravelers and @brittandjosie from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Steemians available who can help you; you can click to go to the Steem Terminal in Discord here:


Have fun and happy Steeming!

Felix, Welcome!

Dude. You're right. It takes a special kind of person to be able to sleep/live in a sub.
Thank you for all you've done. 🥰

Hope you find Steemland a suitable place to share your thoughts. Feel free to tag me if you need a little guidance. Can be scary in these waters. 😉

Hey hey, welcome to steem! Your first post is far better than my first one haha! You got the headings down to a T!

I have a materials science/chemistry background and work at a company that manufacturers equipment using chemical analysis (chromatography, atomic absorption, thermal analysis etc), look forward to seeing more of you around here!

Thank you @nickyhavey! I majored in Comp Info Systems with a focus in Web Development after my first degree. I'm not a professional web developer, but I have the knowledge and drive to find what I need. My educational pipeline was through online education so I'm used to the blogging format. Everything seems really similar.

I used chromatography on a regular basis for the water chem analysis I did at work. I mostly work in Radiation Health now so I'm not currently dabbling in chemistry. Look forward to speaking with you again later. Have a great weekend?

Haha yea I had a steep learning curve with the HTML language but I seem to be doing OK with it now so I'm sure you'll pick it up in no time!

Ah yes, we sell a lot in to the water treatment industry in my company so it sounds like we have familiar ground there! We have a few customers that are nuclear research companies as well where our machines are analysing the waste produced but all important stuff!

Have a great weekend too and enjoy your journey on this platform! Will start following you - if you need any help to get started, just reach out and will be happy to!

Nice intro, seems you created the account some months back but have just got active. No matter, this is a better time for new people to blog than then.

Please have a read of this, it will help you.. but don't vote it.. its old!
