So I don't like to talk about myself, okay who am I kidding, it's my blog and I'm really the only authority on this topic so shit i'mma talk about me, me and me all day long, ya'll just upvote me for being awesome at being me.
Because if you're being yourself, you're being your best self and no one can be you, but you or do you better than you do you. Snoop Dogg said that, so you know it's got to be true!
It's not often that I reach milestones, so allow me to be a little self-indulgent for once.
A few months ago once I started getting the hang of this place I made a bet with the aptly named @fullcoverbetting. I should have known right? That someone would betting in their username wasn't going to lose, but we had a race to dolphin, which he obliterated me in but I made it here eventually.
After 1 year and 11 months, I finally hit my mark. 5000 SP, or well rather 5050 SP to reach the number of vests needed to Dolphin up.
When I got here in September of 2017, a fresh-faced crypto investor who made major gains and thought every coin was a winner because, in 2017, every coin was I got a recommendation from a friend who told me If I liked blogging and crypto this would be the place to be.
After waiting weeks to get an account, I was finally in, looked around and I was not impressed. I eventually left and kept trading crypto until the crash.
It was a sobering experience and I started to look around for other things to do in crypto that didn't involve trading and found my way back into steemit.
I started making posts mostly about crypto if not only about it and my first 50 posts earned a total of $0.00 lol, prices even after the crash were remarkably high around $3 when I got back into it. People were making bank and I couldn't even get a Thai Message wanks worth of upvotes.
I eventually planned to give up until @littlescribe curated and resteemed one of my posts and I started to dive into the deeper underbelly of steemit that is discord and learned the ropes. I was too focused on earning and in that you will always be disappointed, the value here as in the real world is objective and more about networking than working.
I eventually gave up on earning and just posted whatever I thought and showed up regularly forsaken other social media long ago so I was all in. I've learned a bunch since then and I'm pretty sure I'll continue to learn about all sorts of things, not just crypto.
So I'm going to give you my road to Dolphin, everyone's will be different since prices and rewards fluctuate all the time.

I have made two sales
- I sold 45 SBD for like 12k doge just to prove a point to a friend, he sent me doge I sent him SBD converted to BTC
- I sold 100 STEEM to in a steem to PayPal exchange, again just to prove a point.
Other than that, I've just been stacking Sats!
In terms of money, not a great investment, but not a negative one either and after just under 2 years I wouldn't write it off just yet. I think this place has a little more life left in it and I'll be riding it to rekt or the moon, either way, its going to be a fun ride.
