I thought #JAHMFEST2020 vote CTA deserves more visibility. I shared it on Twitter, the only social media platform I regularly use, besides Steem: https://twitter.com/gadrian15/status/1226061673796186114

Excellent thank you. Hopefully we can push JAHMFEST up the list.

There is a lot of exciting things coming up in #SteemIt in the not too distant future! Can't wait for the next bull run, but I have to admit it has been awesome being able to buy #Steem for under $.20 however I am also ready for #Steem to take off! I thoroughly enjoy our beloved #SteemIt platform and the community therein great platform amazing people! #ToTheMoon 💯♥️😀

Things are looking up...

I also just discovered that I can turn on dark mode as well yesterday!😂 Every site that I am able to turn the lights out, I do!

My Twitter account has the lights out, and it makes it much easier for me to read everything on the page. I don't know if that's just me or if everyone feels this way too.

I'll look forward to the power down proposal

Great news today!

It keeps on coming...

Hey! I'm looking forward to localize-it project 😊
