Hello my fellow steemians !
I am happy to announce that I will be attending the Steem Festival with my wife Maria, which will take place in Amsterdam on 11-12-13 November 2016! Read more infos about the festival here http://steemfest.com/
I am so excited to meet all of you Guys and Girls! I can't wait!
As some of you already know https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@liondani/hi-liondani-here-aka-daniel-schwarz-happy-husband-father-steem-witness-steemit-enthusiast apart from my liondani witness "job" I have a regular job in Greece as a part time Dealer In Club Hotel Casino Loutraki!
I normally work 3 days a week. Guess when?... Fridays,Saturdays and Sundays! :)
Due to my schedule I was not sure I was going to be able to make it! But when I asked for the days off, they told me to my surprise that I had exactly 3 vacations days left! I was so ecstatic! Maybe it is my destiny to always follow steemit after all... Just look at the Loutraki-Casino's logo! Is that also a "coincidence" or what? :)
Is there ^^^ something familiar to you? :)
...no comments ;)
so back to the Steem Festival part...
My thoughts about the steem festival initiative is that it could end up as the best PR move EVER for steemit! And it will! Imagine all the crypto world (and not only) focusing on us! It will certainly have a positive impact to steemit reputation. People will be curious to know what steem/steemit is all about! So kudos to all members that are contributing to making it a reality. Special thanks to @roelandp that had the idea at first and is organizing it with great success https://steemit.com/steemfest/@roelandp/save-the-date-steemfest-1-11-12-13-november-2016-amsterdam-nl ... so that is one more reason to not forget to vote for his witness @paynode currently at rank #45 https://steemit.com/~witnesses
As you may possibly have noticed my witness liondani has made it today to rank #19 and I am now part of the top19 witnesses !!! Actually I am in this place for the first time!!! I am grateful for your support!!! It makes me feel more responsible for my role as a steem/steemit witness/contributor and It motivates me to increase my efforts even further.... So I take this opportunity to announce my decision about splitting my witness rewards to the community...
I will contribute 50% of all my witness rewards towards the Steem Festival initiative, starting from the end of this post (first payment) until the event will take place ! I will make one step further and will liquidate the rewards to Steem Dollars (so in parallel I will help the SBD peg) and will transfer the SBDs to the fresh created special account for travel reimbursement @t-r-f ! Confirmation and further details will follow from @roelandp in the comment section.
PS Obviously all Steem Dollars rewards from this post will be donated to the @t-r-f account also.
My contributions will not stop of course with the Steem Festival funding initiative. Much more initiative ideas to come the next days/weeks. Stay tuned!
See you all in Amsterdam !!!
Sincerly your witness,
if you liked what you saw you can vote for me on https://steemit.com/~witnesses curently in rank #19 ;)
Thanks to @skapaneas for his art creation! (right lion)
