Missing Everyone but Staying Busy
Hello to all of my friends here on Steemit, especially those in the freewrite community. I hope you are all well and prospering! Believe it or not, the photo above is of me in high school with the lead role in or Senior play. In this image, I'm playing the part of a radio DJ broadcasting live from a local diner. The girls in the photo have entered a bubble gum blowing contest and they are waiting their turn to see which one can blow the biggest bubble. Hey, was I cool or what! Haha, I hear you saying "or what" lol.
I just wanted to bring those of you who still remember me, and care, up to date on what I have been doing. As many of you know I was really excited about the new Sports Media Blockchain based site that just started up a few weeks ago called Scorum. I had missed out on the early days of Steemit and I have been determined not to miss out on another opportunity like that. I'm not really much of a Sportswriter, sports is more in my wife's department as she sits and watches ballgames all of the time. You know how much I like to write a story so I'm much more suited for writing over here with all of you wonderful people than I am writing on Scorum. But Scorum is so much more than a blogging site and it is so new and exciting that it has been taking up almost all of my time.
Saying that I'm not much of a sportswriter does not mean that I can't write a sports-related blog, I wasn't only an actor in high school you know, I also lettered in three sports. ;)
I want to apologize to @mariannewest and the rest of my @freewritehouse friends for all the neglect I've shown to Steemit and our project here, I'm assuming that I haven't been kicked out yet. I need just a little more time building my Scorum account and then it is my intention to come back to Steemit and begin to spend time then on both platforms. My wife is on Scorum with me and she will be doing more blogging over there than I will, most of my blogging will be here with all of you. My biggest contribution on Scorum will be more about curating and commenting on blogs as well as uploading original photos for their photo database. I love and miss doing the freewrites and I look forward to getting back into the swing of things one day soon. If you're wondering, I think I told you all a long time ago that I have a one-track mind, and I'm not just saying that I really do. I've never have been much of a multitasker, now in my decrepit state, it is almost impossible for me. So if I tried to do both at full speed I would just make a mess of both, and this opportunity on Scorum will only be available one time, then the big payouts will be over and building an account will be just as hard or harder than it is on Steemit right now.
Currently, all of us over on Scorum are excitedly awaiting a big air-drop that will occur on Aug. 1st, at that time everyone that is signed up on the blogging platform will get a bonus of 1.6X all of their earnings up to this point. The reason that the Scorum team decided to do this is because the blockchain went live prior to the blogging platform, so for several weeks, Scorum tokens were being deposited into the rewards pool with no one to distribute them and no blogs to distribute them on. So all of those tokens will be shared among the members who have been active on the platform. This is going to be a huge boost for me personally since I have been working very hard over there and I have already earned a sizable amount of Scorum Power. Yes @mariannewest, I'm almost where I told you that I hoped I would be and a lot faster than I ever dreamed possible.
If you want to find me on Scorum here is a link to my Latest blog over there. It is for my entry in the July Writer's contest. First prize is 100 SCR tokens and if I win I will share 10 of them with each (or split them equally if more than ten) of my @freewritehouse friends that sign up for a Scorum account and give me a shout-out over there. If I don't win no matter, I promise you a 100% upvote on your first post on Scorum, those votes are well over $20 each right now and I'm about to get that big boost! I hope you are proud of me for winning the very first such contest in May, a blog which I posted on Steemit because it preceded the launch of the Scorum blogging platform. So keep your fingers crossed and maybe I can win another that I can share with some of you. Take care and I hope to see you all again soon!
