How it do Steemit family,
Looks around oh shit looky layout got a fresh'n up, things seem ok again..
What a week on the interwebs eh? Seems we've all had issues online lately, not least our beloved Steemit Inc. Bless 'em, it's taken some grace not to melt down and cry about our current state of front end operations. I hesitated to criticize 'cos in my humble opinion the attacks all stem from @Ned's recent SMT announcements. When Rebel forces announce their plan to liberate humanity, well we'd be naive not to expect some heat from the empire. To me it's a clear sign they're shitting bricks! The world is woke and the revolution is now: powered on STEEM, delivered by SMT and with EOS (c)ontracts coming soon too!
However back at camp I don't see many of us considering how huge a deal smart media tokens are? When it came to Steemit.com getting DDOS'd and the days after creators were left playing with our spinning balls. Where were the reassurances from our devs? Even the CEO dropping the mic with a three line pat on the back wasn't cutting it, we saw a community up in arms.
Please learn from this and commune-icate WITH us as fellow vested peers, I feel we have equally passionate commitment to the cause. One thing we are lacking is some care, respect and community liaison, don't go the way of YouTube please. Even our amazing witnesses can't bare the brunt if devs don't share what's going on. @Surfermarly posed the problem perfectly in her open letter, resteemed right here.
So I shared some thoughts on what I feel about these steemy times in my latest stream. Oh and quick time hack for y'all. Drop in the player settings, click the cog and bump that speed up to 1.5x! Save your time to do whatever makes you happy!
With all that being said, we're out here doing our best, making it happen on Twitch (will they adopt the SMT model someday?) and building yet another online income stream. Our focus is only doing what we love! Being home, spending time together and investing in our crypto futures!
I promised not to go on about Corp-orateTube demon-etization, I vented enough about that over here. In short, my panties were twisted for a week or so before settling down to realize the front line is the front line. If we gonna be out here serving truth, well we'll just have to dig in and roll with the punches. I'm still streaming to that platform, starting conversations and inviting subs to Steemit to freedom!
So you're still here? Posting your own creative content on the blockchain right? Really though, what are you waiting for? Thanks for reading and listening to me babbling. Now is the time to go research and learn for yourselves. Steemit is a wonderful place to start reading. The main thing is that YOU have to ask the right questions to get the answers you want. Keep asking, never stop digging and learning!
Which brings me to the third installment for this weeks post, those who've already started here feel free to go outside and work under your own super-vision LOL! This is mainly for our non-steemian friends and loved ones. If you are here via my social media blast or somehow search engines dropped you off with me. Well welcome. Here's a talk about how we move away from those exploiting our creative efforts and get started on a platform that empowers, rewards and inspires us to BE OUR OWN GENIUS!
Re-member we are soon to emerge from beta and it's still very early days for us all. Clearly we still need more hands on deck. More skills, more eyes on and many more voices in the conversation. Be well friends and STEEM ON!
Yes and one more shameless plug to the Twitch Gods! If in any way you're enjoying our streams please support and follow, all it costs is an email address. We'll have more IRL (in real life) streams coming soon too.
HELP US GET AFFILIATED & REACH 500 SUBS!
My Twitch is "RealKeniStyles" see you on the next stream n Steem!
Big love to all our watchers! Every follow, upvote, share and comment makes a huge difference and we appreciate every single one! We out here "playing the game", spreading love and singing Steemit to the world!
Wholeness & Loving Vibrations! 💚💯
