Share The Steem Love Status Update - 12-06-2018 - Running Smoothly - Powering Down Some SP For Lease Renewals.

in #stsl6 years ago (edited)

Hi everyone!!

Where did last week go? @bmj was a little under the weather last week and just couldn't keep up with everything... All of a sudden a whole week has gone by without any updates or another round of my Share The Steem Love Competition!! We're back on-track now, so let's see what this week brings.

Things have been running smoothly, and I haven't had to make any adjustments lately to keep my voting power in check, which means I have found the right balance on my settings... for now. The Steem price has gone down a lot over the past few weeks, so my upvote values are down even though my upvote weight hasn't changed. Not much we can do about that.. it's affecting everyone's upvote value in exactly the same way.

Here is a quick update on what is happening with @stsl...

Powering Down For 1 Cycle to Cover New SP Lease or Renewals

In one of my earlier update posts I mentioned that I would begin to power down some Steem Power so that I could cover the shortfall on any of my leases due to be renewed. I have started a power down for one cycle to free up about 30 STEEM to allow me to try to get a bigger, longer term lease of SP which will add some extra value to all of your upvotes from me. AS always, my SP leases need to be sustainable through my post rewards and some of my curation rewards. I will do my best to give you all the maximum sustainable benefit I can at all times, without having to power down too much SP at a time.

My competition winners are selected based on their reputation, number of supporting nomination votes, and their recent post reward trends.

Tier 2.

Delegator Upvotes: Team #STSL, who delegate their Steem Power to me, and help me on my mission to share The Steem Love, get upvotes from me on this tier.

To qualify for this tier, a minimum of 150 SP delegation is needed, to ensure my upvote values are maintained as high as possible.

Share The Steem Love Competition No 25 Starting Soon!!


Now that I'm back on-track with everything, I'll be kicking off Share The Steem Love Competition No 25 very soon. Look out for my next post, where you'll be able to nominate a fellow Steemian who is working hard to help build your community, and could do with a little extra reward from me for their efforts. You could win upvotes from me for you and your winning nominee for 60 days, and get a little Steem put into your wallets too!!!

That's all from me for now. Keep Sharing The Steem Love and supporting your community!

Until next time....

Wish you didn't have to power much you need?

It's all good. I'm aining at taking out a lnger term, maybe 12 or 13 weeks lease at a better rate than what I have now, so about 50 Steem in tota will hpefully get me a bigger lease at the same cost. My post rewards just don't cover it anymore, so power down is the only way for now, but that's fine too.
