Quick Tips:
There has been a rise in posts and replies talking about sleep deprivation. I agree Steemit is addictive.

@jordanallen : I'm addicted but I can stop at anytime! I just don't want to.

We however need to take care of our health. Here are some quick tips:

  • Download fl.ux for PC or iOS devices or Twilight for Android devices.

Is your computer keeping you up late? f.lux is free software that warms up your computer display at night, to match your indoor lighting.

Prevent bad posture

  • Get an industrial standard mouse and avoid using your laptops trackpads. Arched necks, dumb thumbs are painful.
  • Get an adjustable laptop stand
  • Pick ergonomic places to work in.
  • Sleep…… :)

@jeeves, could you show us some related posts?


thanks @jeeves, now go home and sleep, will you?


Graag gedaan! In case you don't know Dutch, that means You're Welcome!


Wow! I love this. I think that's what @weenis was saying as the future of smart bots. They should only make contributions when called upon to do so.....


I wonder where he's gone? He was not profitable after the appearance of reputation?

I can relate with the sleep deprivation! haha


Steemit Addiction is real.

A dip in price is good for the long term. It should stay down for a while as more and more people join and power up! When we have a solid base then we can rise together.


The price doesn't matter. That will fluctuate like any cryptocurrency. There will be huge drops, and epic hockysticks. What matters is the community. And the community is growing like wildfire, amazing new content getting created.

Awesome post @infovore ! I got to know so many new things that I have missed that have happened this week in Steemit! I really hope you continue with this in a weekly manner! :)

If you want to include a post I created some time ago for newcomers to properly verify themselves if they are creating an #introduceyourself post. Feel free to link to it if it helps get visible to new members who are joining on a daily basis!


Thanks man. I'm glad you found it helpful. Thanks for the heads up btw. Will look into adding it to the next issue..

f.lux is amazing! Been using it for years.


You're right. I once had stinging eye pains due to unrestrained exposure. I downloaded F.lux and working on my laptop has been less stressful.

This is great. I had been concerned the payouts were getting smaller. Apparently not. will go viral! Within the next years it'll be one of the greatest sources to share information.Keep it on!

I know people don't like to here this but Steem saw a big pump and it's likely we are going to correct to somewhere near a buck. Embrace it, we've got a lot of growing to do, and there's going to be big profits in this platform.

Oh no no no. Thank you.

Nice one infovore. I definitel struggled from sleep depro in my first days just thinking about how wonderful the platform is. :)

I know you busy but you think you could check my latest post on money printing with Trump? :

I would appreciate it a lot my friend.
