For a short while I was earning more than a months salary in a week. The temptation to give up my day job and focus on Steemit was very strong, but fortunately I refrained from such an impetuous decision.... because there was a 'hard fork' and the sliding scale and voting limits and the whole system sank into a steaming pile of ...... bottiness and delegation and self serving incestuous support...... {sigh} ... I need to wean myself off this platform.

Its amazing how quickly things have changed! Lets hope we see a reversal of this dip sometime soon - I am skeptical it will happen anytime soon might take another 6 months or a year
