A Lyrical Cry for Cake (and witness support)

in minnowsupportproject •  2 years ago 


This is not a proud tale or so it seems,
Hear this story, love, chocolate, and dreams.
@followbtcnews gets my proxy,
This fellows full of cake and fresh moxie.
Many a witness proclaim their support,
But he stays humble, there is no retort.
I'll expose the dirty secret he hides,
His cake addiction comes and goes in strides.
To be fair he does show such great restraint,
Wants to have cake but the wife says he can't.
Until he reaches a top fifty spot,
I'll attest he's giving it all he's got.
Mouth watering and dripping for crumbles,
The icing giving his tummy rumbles.
Alas, he works tirelessly to eat,
And makes steemit ever more of a treat.
Striving to make the platform much better,
Give this witness a steemit love letter.


All jokes and rumors of cake addiction aside, I have set my witness proxy to @followbtcnews after lengthy discussions with him about how best to support the platform. Hard work and integrity are evident and I've seen some of the projects that are in the works and becoming available by him and his witness partner. I have mentioned multiple times in the past that I encourage all of you to research witnesses and vote for the ones that you think offer the best long-term benefits to the platform and this is my first attempt at bringing one of these individuals to your attention. If you want to understand the cake reference check it out HERE. Thanks for your time and consideration!

Can I vote for him?, If so tell me how, please.

Hi, you sure can, you just need to goto https://steemit.com/~witnesses and scroll down to box where you enter my name Followbtcnews and hit the VOTE button 1 time, don't hit the vote button twice.

Thanks so much.. And @clayboyn Thanks so much for the poem, my wife and I both love it!!!!!

I tried but I would not allow me to add.

I think I found the problem. Looks like it does not respect the capital letter F in your name.

That may be worth a follow back, maybe?
"followbtcnews" worked.

Just my two STEEMS Worth.

At the top right corner of your screen you can press the three little bars.

From there you choose "Vote for Witnesses"

There is going to be a long list of names, but at the bottom you can type in a name that isn't on that list. If you type in his name it will add a vote for him! He's almost in the top 50 and only needs a little more help and then his name will be on the list and easier to find for everyone!

very nice! happy to see such a loverly poem for @followbtcnews

The cake-meister!

I can get behind the minnow project with witness support.
You guys have worked hard to assist the little fishes.
Proud of the work you have done.

Just my two STEEMS Worth.

Thanks, we are trying our hardest.

Woohoo excellent choice!

Hi this is great! I'm @followbtcnews's wife.... and he still hasn't been able to blow out the candles yet because he hasn't reached top 50 :)

Which means he has to keep working his butt off on Steemit!

LOL nice! He has to earn that cake!
