Gniksivart's April Monthly Account Update - Ep. 8 - Unfortunately More of the Same

in #steemit6 years ago

Not much has changed for the month of May either. I am in the process of creating a second account as I want to create on Steemit. After seeing several articles where people are being killed/beaten to a pulp for their cryptocurrencies, I think this is a much-needed change. This account will be mainly used as a blog for posting whatever I feel like.


I should probably update everyone and let them know I was moved "laterally" in my current job due to "poor performance". That's one of the reasons why I've been dedicating less time to Steemit, on top of all my other reasons/excuses, for the previous couple of months. Maybe once everything starts to smooth out at work I'll begin to pick up my Steemit interactions, but until Steemit pays all my bills to keep the standard of living my current job provides, I'll have to focus on my engineering job first and foremost.

With 2 kids and a wife the insurance that the job provides is amazing and right now I'd definitely not be able to afford that and support my family off Steemit. It may seem counter-intuitive to try and spend less time on Steemit all while creating a second account, but hoping to only post on the second account 1 or 2 times a week as it's going to have a lot less exposure since it's just starting out.

Number of Posts

7922 -> 7943 I've kind of swapped what I'm wanting to do from the previous month. Said this was going to be a mainly crypto post account, but for reasons stated above feel like an account like that needs to be more anonymous.

Steem Power

Once again thanks My Steemit Friends Online and @magicmonk for providing a tool that contains this information. I've gone from rank 4234 -> 4298 and my Steem Power has gone from 1,659 -> 1,665. Honestly, I'm surprised I haven't fallen more. I've also been powering up very little and moving most of my earnings off to an exchange, but haven't started powering down yet. Fingers crossed getting ready for a bull Steem run full steem ahead!


My Reputation ranking went from 4,549 -> 4,835 and reputation went from 59.31 -> 59.4 in April.


My followers have gone from 1676 -> 1832 and my rank from 3872 -> 3837.

As always if you have any questions, changes, or improvements for this post let me know in the comments below.


It is totally ok to focus on whats important in life. I wish you the best at work and in life and when you get some free time you can post or blog or reply.

It is always strange a place built around cryptocurrency has such a “viewpoint” of dealing with that kind of content. I wish you luck on that endeavor on another.

Have an amazing week!

Thanks you too! How have you been. Still grinding on path of exile?

Just ended a 3 day hardcore race. I had an amazing time. Now to enjoy the rest of the league in softcore where I can die all the times I want! I got further than I did last time and reached a new highest level for myself in softcore.

Overall, I'm doing great! I've joined some gaming communities and found one I really enjoy being active in.
