๐Ÿ˜Œ Steem Inc undelegated me! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿฅ‚

in steemprogress โ€ขย  2 months ago

My wife and I are only about 10 years away from paying off our mortgage, and there will probably be less celebrations in our household then, than there is right now, haha! I have just received notification that I have finished paying back the initial 15SP Delegation that I received from Steem Inc. as a n00bie when first joining the Steem blockchain, some 90 days ago.

ย ย ย ย 

I guess for many people here, this isn't such a big deal. Many of you probably paid off your initial Delegation within days or weeks, by simply investing large amounts of fiat cash into $หขแต—แต and then powering it up. I haven't had the wherewithal to be able to do that though, and this achievement reflects mainly the creation and curation rewards that I have earned on the Steem platform since I got here. What that boils down to, is that it reflects the level of interest my content has generated in the community here, and how generous you all have been with upvoting my stuff!

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank a few people in particular who have helped me with this achievement. First of all there are @lemony-cricket and @ryivhnn, who have both also delegated to me from my early days on the Steem platform. Your help with this has really impacted my progress on Steem, and I appreciate your kindness and generosity, both of you. Now that I'm no longer being delegated to by Steem Inc., I can concentrate on improving my own stake on the platform, and I should be able to release your delegations back to you in the not too distant future. I won't forget the start you have given me on Steem, and when I am able to, I will be happy to delegate to your favourite cause or project, to #payitforward for the help you have given to me.

ย ย ย 

Also I'd like to thank @hendrikdegrote, @steemmonsters, @mattclarke, @eturnerx, and @holoz0r, the "heavy-hitters" who have upvoted my content. Thank you for some of those very nice large upvotes! I really do appreciate it, not just for the payouts, but for the Reputation increase as well. There are also many Orcas, Dolphins, and even Minnows and other Plankton who may not have such immediate effect on my account, but who have been consistent in upvoting my content, and that is also very much appreciated.

Speaking of @eturnerx and @ryivhnn, I'd like to also thank the entire AUS & NZ Discord group ... my peeps! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  This is where I hang out a lot, and I have even been to a couple of the IRL Steem meetups now as well. Finding the local users group on Steem here in New Zealand was the best thing that I ever did on Steem. They have been so supportive and provided excellent advice and guidance to me as a n00bie.

And of course I must mention the other groups that I'm involved in here on Steem, particularly the @SteemMonsters community, the @Steempunknet community, the @MinnowSupport community, the @Chibera community, and not to forget those great volunteers over in @Steem.chat who have always made themselves available to answer my n00bie questions, even the dumb questions! So many people on this platform have helped me to get to where I am today. I appreciate all of you, and look forward to getting to know you better in the future.

I'm still hoping to reach Reputation 50 by the time I've been on the Steem platform for 100 days. With your help, I may be able to achieve that as well!

Hehe, you've obviously been turning a blind eye to my standard reply footer template then, as it has a link to SPN in it, along with a link to SteemMonsters and to Chibera. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  (I don't normally use the template on my own posts, but I will this time, just for you, haha.)

Thanks for the nice comment. Yep, the training wheels have come off now. You and the team at Steem.chat have been very instrumental in helping me find my feet here. Thanks for everything you do over there.
