Retracing my steps... how many active UK Steemians now?

in #palnetlast year

I've been on a bit of a Steem break since my father died earlier this month.

Some much to do.

Sorting out paperwork. Sorting out his house. Sorting out my emotions.

The death of my father, as my last remaining parent, has made me think long and hard. About many things.

Particularly about personal connections.

With family. With friends. With everyone I know.

It has also made me think again about connections on Steem.

So this seems like a good time to take a rain check on the Steem population here in the UK.

Has it shrunk, has it grown. Who's gone. Who's new.

Below is the list of active UK steemians from the last 'census' back in December.

Please do check in in the comments to let me know you are still about. Or if you not on this list and would like to be added.

I'm around in Scotland, not terribly 'active' though :)

So sorry to hear about your loss my friend. Hugs and the very best wishes are sent to you and yours from me and mine.

I absolutely understand the inner reflection you are experiencing, I sincerely believe this is a way of anchoring ourselves back in to some semblance of normality after a traumatic and life changing event. It's almost as if the pragmatic part withing takes us away from such raw emotions.

I hope the good days are becoming more frequent again, although we are both wise enough to know that the journey is filled with peaks and troughs. Sending you the very best my friend.

Obviously I am still around, I am sure you noticed by now although I am just back after ongoing health problems and look forward to connecting with more of the UK community among us.

Take great care my friend!

Hey there I’m an active user from the east of England 😃

glad to see you check in here ... was thinking about you when I was scanning the list.

Did you get struck by lightening or flooded out? I'm kind of busy but trying my best to keep up - you need some !COFFEEA 15

Very sorry to hear about the passing of your father.

I am a wannabe UK Steemian. Been too long since my last twisted thistle.

So very sorry to hear about your father, my thoughts are with you.

If still around but haven’t been particularly active. I’ve not fallen out of love with Steemit but have been trying to fall back in love with old hobbies and interests in the hope of coming up with decent content.

Sorry to hear about your loss and hope things, mentally and admin wise are ok.

My thoughts are with you! Back after a little break 💯🐒

Check me in; still here :)

Good to see you back.
Can’t imagine what it’s like to sort out such huge things like house and estate.
Thinking of you man X

Sorry to hear about your father, I guess that is going to send one into a period of self-reflection.

No change here.

To view or trade BEER go to

Hey @pennsif, here is your BEER token. Enjoy it!

Takes time to live with loss, your doing a good job with dealing with it.

Also i live in crawley, between london and brighton

I figured you must be taking some time out. It's a tough change which must kind of start a new chapter in your life. I hope you are healing well emotionally.

It's been fairly quiet around here anyway, with the drop in Steem price and likely some unhappiness about the impending hard fork.

Another one for the north, @goblinknackers. !CHOPS

Hi pennsif, this write-up was particularly meaty, fulfilling, wholesome, beefy and deserving of a CHOPS token. Don't Chomp on it all at once!
To view or Trade CHOPS visit

So sorry to hear about your Dad @pennsif. I'm still here . . . just about.

My condolences.

I am a semi-active steemian, an expat in Singapore...

Hey, @pennsif.
I'm still about but not creating any content ATM.
Sorry to hear about your loss.
To date I've buried one father and two mothers. Work that out if you can. I must have been particularly evil in a past life.

Sorry to hear your news. We've missed you here.

PS I'm still here (albeit a little less active)

i'm kind of semi-active @pennsif, … i'm in Yorkshire, I get excited about it sometimes but can only dream of having the same motivation as the chops man @slobberchops.

Sorry about your daddy...
