Contemplating My Post-Steemit Existence
I’ve been through so many ups and downs on Steemit in the past few years and have always come out on the other end of those challenges, mostly, better for it. This time it feels much different and for the first time in nearly four years I’m considering taking a break from the platform.
Steemit has changed my life infinitely for the better and, that, I promise to never forget. I’ve devoted a lot of time and effort building friendships and promoting the platform, whenever possible, over these past four years. If, after this break, I do decide to leave permanently I will truly miss those people who made an effort to interact with me.
I will miss checking my feed every day and reading fiction by @dreemit, @honeydue, and @ezzy, @opheliafu’s incredible art, @sultnpapper’s homespun wisdom, @berniesanders' razor sharp posts and satire, @lizelle’s thoughtfulness, wisdom, and recipes, @roelandp’s quirky humor and epic SteemFest events and many, many others. I consider many of you to be friends and I do hope you all will stay in touch no matter what.
Writing here (nearly 10,000 posts!) on this platform has been so much a part of my day that I’m not entirely sure how the void would be filled. I do know that life has a funny way of rushing into whatever door is left open. I still remember how exciting it was those first few months to hit that Post button and wait to see what happened. It felt like Christmas morning...Every. Single. Time.
These past few weeks I've noticed that feeling just isn't the same as it used to be. So, for the first time in a long time, I’ll be taking a break in an effort to regroup, re-evaluate, and decide what’s best for my future.
For now, I bid you farewell, and hope the weeks to come bring you all nothing but the best.
