I am now a Steem Witness! :)
It has been quite a battle, but finally, I succeeded... I am now a Steem witness with a running node that is up and going. It has been almost two weeks since I wrote in a post about my intention to become a witness, but it has been a bumpy road with lots of mistakes in my quest for success!
Why was it hard?
I had a very hard time finding guides and helpful articles that would take me through the process. I have been setting up quite a lot of Ethereum nodes before (and I am still running a couple of them), but somehow, the lack of documentation scared me off a bit. Luckily, there are lots of awesome people in the Steemit community, and I would especially like to thank @justyy and @ety001 for their help along the way. I have almost terrorized them with questions, but they have been very helpful all along the way... something that makes me think that they are awesome Steemit witnesses as well! A Steemit Witness should absolutely be ready to help people in need, just like me! :)
I have now discovered some more updated guides dealing with how to become a Steemit witness (something that might make the process easier for others), but still - it was a battle for me.
Why do I want to be a Steem Witness?
Do you know why? Because I believe in the platform! I believe that this is a platform that will help, bless, and inspire lots of people. Why share all your data, photos, and writings on social media sites making you pay with your private data, instead of sharing it on Steemit and earning money while doing so?
I am so inspired by all the great projects on Steemit, and I know from several of the communities that I am in, that Steemit is actually giving food on the table for families all around the world! That is awesome!
I will not be able to bless the platform with my programming skills (I do know HTML, but it stops there). But, I am a stubborn guy who is packed with ideas, and when I get something on my mind, I don't stop before I succeed and before it is done. I believe this can be a blessing to the platform and also when it comes to new ideas and projects running on the platform. That is why I didn't give up when I faced trouble becoming a witness, and that is why I will fight until I bring other projects and important cases on Steemit to success!
I would be really happy if you would vote for me as a witness!
Do you like the sound of it? I would be really happy if you would join me and vote for me as a witness on Steemit. It doesn't cost you a thing, and every person on the platform can vote for 30 witnesses. So, why don't you give me one of your votes, and support me in that way? I would be really grateful!
You can vote in two ways.
- You can go to www.steemworld.org/@yourusername . Click account details, and choose witness votes. Click the Vote for Witness text and add @unbiasedwriter to the box.
I look forward to a bright future together here on this platform. If you have any comments, questions, or so on, please write! I would love to hear from you!
