BOOM - A Minnow!

I Am A Minnow!

Two years ago, I didn't think I would see 500SP. Granted, two years ago it would have cost at least $1000. I wonder how much 500SP will be valued at the next time STEEM reaches an all time high?

It hardly matters; its worth is much greater.

I have written before about how Steem is helping me develop an investment mindset. I believe the power up function hits exactly the right balance. I can earn a form of interest with my powered up STEEM from posting and curation, which I was going to do anyway. Because powering down takes a while, it reduces my temptation to take chances on market swings. With my STEEM "tied up" in vesting, I am motivated to do something productive with it, as I am rewarded for doing so.

Kudos to the @tenkminnows initiative, which gave me a massive boost in momentum in the past month. I would also like to thank @ifc, @pifc, and @tcpolymath for the community building work that got me started around here.

Here's to the next phase in the journey!

P.S. I am rather proud of the squash fish I made for this post. On the off chance that there is someone here who would like to use it, please consider it Creative Commons and use it however you wish. The real one will be eaten!

Congrats and well deserved. Keep growing and enjoy it.

I was scheduled to be a minnow for my second birthday here at STEEMIT. Thanks to the project #tenkminnows, I did this early this month :-D

Great to see another person reach this milestone. I want to launch another campaign to keep this going so more can get there.

#MayBeAMinnow looks good!

Well I'm putting it out there. I am not great at managing projects, but I hope to inspire people. We have some great people on Steem who will want to help.

Congratulations on becoming a minnow. It's quite an accomplishment. I understand what you are saying about not being sure your ever seen the status. I definitely feel the same. Its seems like it's much harder/slower to grow han a year or two ago. Not necessarily a bad thing though as it means that the platform is expanding with more users.

Congratulations. I'm happy that we were a part in your achievement. Hoping to make many more minnows.

Huge Congratulations to you!!

Congrats on becoming a minnow! I think I'm a minnow as well. :| I used to be a dolphin but I'm guessing the power down to get more funds for the IFC and to have a bit ready in case the price goes up again to cash a lil out has dropped me below that threshold.

Glad to hear the IFC has been helpful to you in your journey. :) And continued good luck with your goals! :D

Congrats! And I like the squash minnow!
