I've started to have "The Talk" with my wife

in thetalk •  2 years ago


I had to go into an office job today. It's the first time in 10 years that I've done that. I mean, I've been to my corporate office in the last ten years, but today I got on the train, got off at the right station, got on the subway, and walked from there to work. I officially became a part time commuter. It's possible that as soon as 2 weeks go by I can get back on the road, but until then...

Hard to talk about what's it like. I am a huge believer in education. I think it has the power to lift people up, but the game is rigged right now. So many students go to college, but less than half will graduate within 6-years. They don't tell you that stat when you're on the tour. You're going to spend maybe $150k, and there's a shot you wont' get a degree out of it. Even if you do it's not like the jobs are paying a ton of money. You're lucky if you make $50k out of college in a lot of places, but that doesn't go much past food, rent, loan, car, and utilities. Throw in kids and you're family rich and cash poor. I'm one of the most fortunate people in the world with a PhD and 10 years of experience and I'm barely hanging in middle class.

So, world economics are broken. I love education, but I feel like a small cog in a big evil wheel. I don't want to perpetuate student debt. Those are 30 year shackles for many people. So, I told my wife my latest dream.

The talk

Actually it went pretty well. I got her to sign up for Steemit. So, she knows about this place. She's read a little on bitcoin and getting more comfortable. I think when she realized people have million dollar accounts in this place that it's not a play money thing. When I showed her what posts could make she started maybe seeing how Steemit could play a bigger part in our lives.

So, I used that as a good starting point and I told my wife I hope to be able to quit my job and do this full time. In my dream world I'm doing that starting next year. I love blogging. I love this community. I love the empowerment I feel using crypto. I want this world to change and I think taking power away from immoral banksters is the best thing I can do with my life.

Intention

I have some odd beliefs about the universe. I believe that the mandela effect is real. I've personally experienced it and I have surveys totalling more that 50,000 people to track that experience. Things we take for granted as never changing do change! What animal will lie with the lamb? It's not what you think! What did the disney witch say to the mirror? It's not what you think. Where is your heart in your chest. It's probably not where you believe it to be. The universe changes around us.

I think one of the things that impacts those changes is our intention. Intention is a hard thing for people to grasp at this level, but it's not that much different than your every day experience. You set your intention in the morning to brush your teeth after you get up. You set your intention to finish your project by the due date. I set my intention for how I want my world to look. I have set my intention to be a full time blogger and steemit advocate to young people. I hope it's as early as next year. I might still go to the exact same schools to talk to the exact same kids... But now I'll empower them with a different type of knowledge that I think can free them.

So, universe... there you go. I've set my intention, made it public, and setting my internal radar to attract what I need to attract to make this happen. If you're reading this; I thank you and love you and appreciate your support. Namaste!

PS

I got some major witness upvotes. I'm now 55 and climbing. I have 140 votes which is actually quite a bit more than some of the witnesses ahead of me. They're on notice. This is an integral part of my life change. I take it very seriously and will show results of how I can be a great community member here.

Also, while I'm doing this I'm nearly at 1200 followers. ~20 more or so I'll be in the top 100 most followed steemit authors. I'm looking forward to that post!!!

Love,

Please vote for me for Witness!

This was a great read! I am a college student in nursing school. I just finished my freshmen year and am dreading the next three years but I'm excited that now I have steemit to rely on.

Well written aggroed, especially about the world economies being broken - very sad and very true. I am only new to STEEMIT and my wife thinks I am playing a game - it will be a while before the great unveil but I hope to get there one day. Good luck with your campaign to become a witness. I am sure this post we put you over 1,200 followers. Cheers mate. SirKnight.

·
·
·

OK voted for you as a witness - you are the first and only witness I have voted for and resteemed. What can I say mate - I like family men.

·
·
·

Thanks boss! That means the world to me! I'll try not to let you down. Take a look at @ausbitbank, @teamsteem, and @theprophet0 too. Lots of great establish folks too, but these are some fresh faces.

·
·
·
·

Sure mate. Have them pay me a visit. See no reason I wouldn't vote for @ausbitbank - he is a fellow Aussie and Australia needs all the help it can get to fix it trade deficit - STEEM could help. :) SK.

·
·
·
·
·

He's my brother from another mother. Guy's cool AF.

·
·
·
·

Thank you for the head up @aggroed! I appreciate it very much!

·
·
·
·
·

You're always on my recommended list!

great article mate, and I hope you can pull off your dream.
I've upvoted, and I voted you for Witness as well.

·

That's awesome!!!!! Thank you so much! I'll try not to let you down!

·

FYI it looks like you voted, then unvoted quickly. The witness voting page doesn't update fast enough, I see this happen with people all the time when they click a second time because it doesn't seem to have done anything

·
·

Thanks mate, I'll revote

·
·

@ausbitbank

When I try to add @aggroed as one of my 30 votes for witness, it shows your name as proxy?

How can I add @aggroed and keep you as my proxy?

·
·
·

Because you set me as your voting proxy you automatically copy my witness votes - and I vote for aggroed too :)

·
·
·
·

Ok, I am still learning...

Thanks @ausbitbank

·
·
·
·
·

I see I have a lot to learn myself.

My universe changed 5 years ago when we found out my husband is sick. Now I cannot work away from home/farm. His meds are 1000/wk and insurance won't cover. So there are my intentions. I hope that my blog and videos provide value to others so that I may provide for my family. So far, steemit has been a real boost and I love interacting with everyone so far!

·

You get a follow. Make a great post and I'll make sure 1200 people see it and let my heavyweights know to send it some love. If I could alter that dream at all it'd be an aquaponics farm. In total dreamland I'd grow marijuana, but as long as I have kids under 18 and an out of control DEA I'm not going to risk it. I'll send some reiki your way and hopefully you'll get some new excellence to enter your life. Namaste.

·
·

Ok, it's up. I'm literally shaking. Didn't realize this was going to be so hard, putting it all out there....

·
·
·

Yeah. I was balling when I wrote one of my What I witnessed with my witness. It's hard.

·
·
·
·

That was the post that moved me to go ahead and write this one. Internet hugs for you and your supportive wife too!

·
·

Oh gosh, I hope I can make you a great post! Thank you so much! Hubby needs all the help he can get...ankylosing spondylitis DOES NOT play around, my friend. Your best wishes is as great a thing as any in his day:) and he is fully supportive of steemit so I've got that!

·
·

Nice article @aggroed best wishes :)

·
·

This isn't the post I thought I would submit to you, but its one I've been working on for awhile. The one with my husband is taking a bit longer, as he is having to deal with a lot right now. I hope this one is good enough!
https://steemit.com/homesteading/@farmandadventure/this-planet-needs-viola-and-olamae

when you free yourself, you are able to share your gifts with the world.

I'm glad that you're considering a bright future here on Steemit :) It's actually quite funny how I'm trying to figure out, which will make decent money first? My social media accounts (normal ones such as YouTube with my 15K and my YouNow with 1K) or Steemit. So far, on some days I make more money through here with 250 followers than even if I had like 30K on YouTube. I'm really glad that YouTube's Ad boycott inspired me to push past my comfortable limits. We're here now and that's all that matters. I see a bright future for us all as long as everything keeps growing :)

·

I'm glad you're here. I'm following now. Make a hard hitting piece in support of peace, abundance, and liberty and I'll hep you get an audience of 1200 people.

·
·

Hey mate, more marketing is always fine by me :) It's how the Steemit community grows. What exactly do you mean by abundance? Do you live by the laws of abundance (as in there's plenty of love to be found for everyone, money, work, etc. as long as one looks for it and persists through all the shit)?

·
·
·

I try. But I think a lot of this economy and system has been designed to feel lke we're always in a lack for things. The way money works is that at the exact moment it's printed it's issued as debt. That means a year from now you owe more money than was printed. Where do you get that? other people, but eventually it catches up with you that there is never enough money in the system to pay the debt. That's a major part of the scam.

Heck, when Steem hits $100 you can retire early. I feel like that is very real possible in the next year or two.

·

Yeah, I'll stick this in the comment section for now. I'm still waiting on another BTC to invest in steemit and golos. But after that comes through I'll post that I think we'll hit $5 by December. HF19 is a winner.

Keep up the fight. I will do what I can to support your effort. I see how hard you work at this. Your efforts really show. I just joined and haven't even started on Steem (medical issues) but I am already getting a sense of the family here and I bet I am not the only one out there that will help to lift you up. Steem ahead, we got you!

·

This is one of the best comments I've read to date! Thank you. Followed.

·
·

Thanks Aggroed but you really deserve it.
I , personally, get a lot of great info from your posts and the sense of family I am feeling here was just confirmed when I watched Papa-pepper make a generous donation to Darthnava for the surgery he needs.
It about brought me to tears to see such kindness in today's world.
We are all struggling to reach freedom in our lives and I will support anyone trying to work their way to freedom and security.
I am quickly getting drawn into the Steem world. There are really great people here.
Best wishes!

I've set my intention, made it public

Great post mate, I've resteemed this :) Good luck I expect good things for you

·

Thanks brother!

Nice that your wife joined Steemit and it's great that you plan to become a full time blogger!

·

Well, not just blogger, but steemit advocate and blogger. Should be awesome. Thanks for your encouragement!

Congrats on all the success. I love that you shared this with us, having that talk with a s/o is difficult I'm sure especially if its something you want to do soon(ish). Wishing you all the best!

·

Thanks Chrissy!

Nicely put, I told about steemit to my wife a week ago, so far shes not convinced. So I'll see how long I'll stick around.
Keep on steeming @aggroed.

·

Wait till she sees some money come in from posting. Took me 8 months to really build it up. it won't be overnight. But then one day you have to buy something and say "don't worry I got this, Steemit got me covered." It'll start to feel real.

·
·

Thanks for encouraging words, here is a original hippo just for you :)

·
·
·

It's like he's staring into my soul.

I'm so glad you and wife are both going to work Steemit, you'll be an unstoppable pair. You're absolutely right about the world economics being broken. They are and it's crushing people. When you set your intention and take deliberate action magical things happen. So I'm wishing you both magic! While I'm new here I do believe Steemit can be a real game changer for people. Here's to your success!!

·

You're very sweet judy. Thank you for following me and commenting. You won yourself a follow, a friend, and a fan. Namaste!

·
·

My pleasure and thank you for all you've done to help me along the way here, it's very much appreciated. You're making a big difference to me and many here. Namaste!

Keep going, follow that dream!

That is great! Glad your wife joined steemit and that you are thinking of doing #steemit full-time. i have considered it myself, more as curator than blogger, but not completely ready yet. If I had been alone i would have jumped at the opportunity...but I have a daughter to raise on my own, so need the fixed income for now...

Will be waiting for your 100th steemit blogger post!

·

It'll be fun for sure!!! I'm gonna blow my top!

Hi, Brother! Am New here, Upvoted you, and wrote you in Witness, dont know how to follow yet? Am also a believer in the Mandella Effect, I believe CERN is tied in to it, but I am working on the link to prove it! I have NO real bank account, so cryptocurrency sounds exciting to me! Never had any, not real familiar with it, but am ready to Learn! Have Been "Down the Rabbit Hole" since 2007, Searching for the Truth after Being awakened to the fact we are Lied to Our Whole Lives! smh.. Good Luck with your Intentions!!

·

Thanks boss. You should come join the discord channel PALnet that's in the footer. There's a follow button just above the comments setion. I'll click it for you and if you write a gem I'll upvote it or possibly resteem it to get you started. Welcome to steemit.

·
·

done and done, mate! Thanks very much for the guidance!

Good article!!! Wishing you luck and support on your dream!! And yes, college is indoctrination recent grad

Man, thats was great, honestly. I am happy for you that you were able get back on that corp ladder/slave trade deal, at least you have an income ... I can tell you first hand when you make the decision to leave that life to start your own biz, life becomes so much better. But when that crashes it is hard as hell to get back on that corp ladder or any ladder anymore ... At 56, I can tell you, anyone can fall through the cracks.
Good luck and best wishes on your dream, I have faith in you, you ARE living the dream. Right here on steemit ! Spread the Love !

Read More, Reason More ... JTS

·

Thanks boss. I don't think I'll miss it. We'll see. My kids are little. It would be nice to be able to spend more time at home.

·
·

Oh, I understand, I meant that you were lucky to be ABLE to go back .. as in, at least you have an income .. But, yes, get home asap, you CAN DO IT ! ... good luck ! I wish i could write as well as you !

·
·
·

You should look at my early posts. They weren't that great. I actually got 10x better just studying @kaylinart. Girl knows how to post.

This post changed everything for me. https://steemit.com/blogging/@aggroed/tips-to-successful-steemit-posting-learning-from-kaylinart

·
·
·
·

Agree with everything you have said, lol, and ty .. was just recently able to get back on steemit, so we will see ... I came here to learn about blockchain awhile back, started learning a lot, stayed for the IQ food, lol I pretty much just curate, but that might change soon, so many wonderful people here.
Thanks again ! and btw, deff following you now !

·
·
·
·
·

Thanks! Glad to have you here!

You have my vote @aggroed

·

Thanks! The little ones add up. I can make posts about them and it's social proof that people want my approach in this role. Thank's boss!

This really hit home for me. I've been in career for 20+ yrs and made <$50k last year. I don't enjoy it anymore. Not really anyway. There's so much more to life, and I find happiness in family, church and friends but it's about time to move on. I'm a week into my steemit experience but I'm starting to see ways that it can help me to the next level. Good luck with your goals. I hope to see you accomplish them!

·

Very thoughtful response. I just want a life of authenticity and meaning. I don't want to live a "quiet life of desparation." I don't want my actions to contribute to harm. I want to spend every day promoting peace, abundance, and liberty so that we can all experience a life. I hope both because of this place and through promoting it's power that I can enable that transition.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you, so much for this post man... I really really appreciate it.... The honesty gives me chills.... I thought it was only me but I am happy that other people are seeing it.... the system is broken, something is definitely wrong....I can share my experience...currently I am a medical student and hopeless....I did all that's required of me....graduate with honors from high school, get my first degree BSc, numerous certificates and volunteered on numerous projects... I have a GPA above 3.5 and still I am struggling to pay for school... I am in debt and can't even get a loan, I feel worthless even though I graduated top of my class, most of my peers have kids and family and I am struggling to find money to pay for school....Something isn't right and I feel like I have been lied to.... I don't even know what the future holds for me, tuition has doubled on me and they keep raising and adding fees that the scholarship is practically worthless....I feel responsible for the death of my dad, as he has taken this burden so much on his shoulders, I get sick everytime I think about it....I went as far as setting with the Dean of the School and this was his response, "Mr Mitchell, you are one of my best students and I wish you the best but until I start seeing some money on your account we cannot allow you to move forward, I would have to ask the security to remove you from campus. I am sorry but this is how it works."....its sad because you expect doctors/ school administrators to be competent and compassionate but this system is producing questionable apples....I look at some of my peers I consider excellent student and I see their struggles, I look at student who I know for a fact does not know anything blowing away exams.....something needs to give....please get on a microphone and speak about it....they won't listen to me but probably they would listen to you.....everything isn't as it appears to be....I love Bitcoin, and I wish I had put tuition money into it, I be so much better off. I have been following the altcoins and gathering and storing them in my wallets...I love steemit and I am here for longterm...this is TRUE VALUE

·

Wow, lot's to read here. yeah, I mean, if you put that 100k into crypto you'd be a millionaire multiple times over. Heart breaking right?

You didn't kill our dad. You don't need to put that on yourself. Even if you did putting it on you isn't going to solve it. Just set your intention to leave this place a better one than you found it and you'll make him proud.

Yeah, we got a bad deal going. Not your fault. Hopefully this experiment in financial slavery will end soon and without violence. May it usher in an era of peace, abundance, and liberty.

·
·

Congratulations on coming out of the steem closet and setting your intentions. If you keep a positive attitude I am sure that you will continue to get closer and closer to your goal at faster speeds.

I'm not sure which theories this idea overlaps with but have you ever thought of infinite realities, where each possible reality already exists and each reality is nothing but stationary "snapshot". Time doesn't move, our consciousness is just experiencing those snapshots in a certain order to create the illusion of past, present and future.

This would explain everything from dreams (experience reality in a non-linear fashion) to the mandela effect (skipping over to a slightly different set of snapshots).

So your intentions and your emotions, actions, beliefs, they are deciding which set of snapshots you end up experiencing.

Not sure if you are into this but I thought I'd share it with you.

·

Yeah. Def a possability. I tend to think it's not quite that because I think we're seeing a merging of timelines. That version doesn't explain to me how there are groups of memories that conflict. That's why I think it's like 2+ servers merging.

Interesting post!I retired on disability in 2014, I blew out my lower back. Too much heavy lifting for my slender frame. It falls under the heading of "be careful what you wish for". Apparently I wasn't clear enough about the particulars when I set my intention to find a way not to have to do physical labor to earn my meager living...
As for the mandala effect, I'm not sure if the reality actually changes, or if we humans simply remember stuff wrong. On the one hand, I've experienced at least 2 glitches in the matrix, but on the other hand, I find that memory can be a tricky thing. I'm willing to keep an open mind on it, either way.
As for steemit, I figured I'd give it an honest try. I mean, what do I have to lose, beside the time that I would have normally spent on facebook...
I think I gave you a vote for witness, I didn't see your name in the top 50 so I wrote it in. First time I've voted for a witness, this is all still pretty new to me.

·

I'm honored and thank you for your vote. I'm convinced it's a real effect, and I'm positive people are experiencing a different subset of effects. It's a weird world we're in.

·
·

Not only is it weirder than we know, but it is weirder than we are able to know. I believe it is simply beyond the capacity if the human mind to be able to comprehend just how weird it actually is.

Thank you so much for sharing this @aggroed - I think we all share the same dream of casting off the shackles of the rat race someday and live our own lives to the fullest, while steeming to our hearts' content! You've done some fantastic work on Steemit and definitely have my vote for witness ;)

·

Rock ON!!! Thank you so much. I'll try not to let you down! I think if we work together we can make a change.

·
·

I've only been on Steemit for a week now and I can already see how we as a united community brimming with great content and talent can make a major difference in this world. And it all starts from the top with experienced writers and content creators like yourself. Thank you and keep up the groundbreaking work. Steemit is already changing our lives so let's keep the momentum going!

I recently had a discussion with my wife also about joining steemit, though it is too soon to say how much it will become a part of our lives. As an occupation, I think it would benefit her even more than me, since she can't do the office job. Her main concern is putting herself out there and facing rejection. So far, I have found this to be one of the most supportive places on the web. It is better place to share ideas than Facebook - and those people are supposed to be friends! I am really happy to see your success here @aggroed and I wish you and your fam the best on this journey!

·

That's boss! Thanks for your vote and friendship. Steemit has that number next to your name. I'm at 67. You're at 44. That's rep. Rep has a lot of impact around here. You get it for writing good stories adn not being a dick. It's amazing what kind of community that helps build because all the typically internet asshole shit get shut down... I should do a post on that. Lemme know when she needs an account. I'm happy to make it for her quickly.

·
·

Oh yes I forgot about the rep bit. A lot of features fit together to make this kind of self policing community. I guess that is inspired by the nature of blockchain itself... A means of creating an complex organization without central authority. This is the first place I've seen it extended beyond currency and into actually encouraging people to behave and contribute usefully. Sure the idea of rep points has been around, but here the motivation is so much more powerful, and grows exponentially as we draw more people into the group. It is a powerful new technology in the world of distributed computer systems. If functioning currencies can be made without a central bank, could entire societies be made without central governments? You should write something on that!

·
·
·

I have!

It's called PALcoin and PALnet. Idea is as the currency is mined 50% of the earnings go into a community pool. Then there is a kickstarter page to figure out how to spend it. No taxes. Community funds. Good times!

The wolf, magic mirror on the wall, center of chest.

Any more questions?

·

That's how's it's always been for you? That's incredibly rare. Only 1 in 10 remember magic mirror on the wall instead of mirror mirror on the wall. Wolf is just as bad.

See if I can catch you in this one. It's a big one!

my score was 20042. (Is that 20 right, 4 wrong?)

Here's what I wrote about the quiz:

I could name plenty of King James Version Bible "fill in the blank" quizzes in which a large portion of people will get the word wrong. As much as this beloved book is used and known and sold in the US, it is still largely enigmatic when it comes to specific wordings. It's full of surprises, not because it's been altered by the timeline, but simply because it is susceptible to corruption, willful or otherwise. Most preachers read from it but eschew verbatim compliance with it for its second-person pronouns, its quaint word use, and its unfamiliar vocabulary. The bulk of ME problems stem from a leniency of verbatim compliance and using different spellings or wordings. The Telephone Game is a prime example in which verbatim compliance is mandatory and still can't be maintained.

When you can successfully perform the Telephone Game in a large group of people, come back to the Mandela Effect studies.

It boils down to attention to detail when the details aren't pertinent to a person's life, liberty, or property. If you were going to lose a finger for every misquote of Star Wars or Cinderella, you might pay more attention before you said "Luke I'm your father" or "Mirror, mirror."

But we just sit through these things as observers and enjoy them.

I have said the same thing about Nelson Mandela. If he was your best friend, you'd know when he died or whether he died. But he's not.

Frank APPROVES @aggroed as a WITNESS

You have been PROMOTED FREE for using the "steemitfulltime" TAG (hashtag)

https://steemit.com/promoted/steemitfulltime

·

Thanks boss! And the promotion wasn't necessary but very much appreciated!

·
·

Just doing my part for the Steemit Community.

Appreciate your support @aggroed

Keep STEEM N ON,
Frank

Glad to hear it went over well with the wife thus far! And yeah, student debt is crazy. My neighbor is pinging me for advice on buying a home and she can't get the financials to work because her student loans are like a mortgage payment already!

·

yeah. I have buddies that went through grad school that pay more for their loans than their house. It's no bueno. Worse yet, it's student loans that made that possible. Govt issued easy money.. What did the schools do? raise prices. The consumer is now paying more for basically the same thing with a nicer sports complex. Not a good deal.

Awaraness is one of the key points in cryptocurrencies. Knowing it is there and what will change the comming years as people will all start accepting the new way of payment and the new currencies. Good luck with following your dream, i will be right there with you!

·

Thanks for the warm thoughts gindor! Should be a fun journey!

Thanks for sharing the personal details of your life. I feel like we just got done eating at the dinner table together.

Thanks for the awesome meal and great chat see you and the gang for a jog a the park tomorrow to work off that feast ;)

·

My family calls that a constitutional! Lookin' forward to it!

This article really sunk into me, since I have decided not to proceed with college after putting in a lot of work, I wasn't satisfied. I agree with you 100%.. a lot of people go into college and finish it with thousands in debt. I decided I didn't want to be in that situation and convinced myself to just do what I am passionate about instead. So far I think its the best decision. Congrats on the followers! I can't wait to be where you are at. Just upvoted and resteemed !

·

Thanks boss! Good luck. I got in a fight with my dad saying if the decision was tomorrow I wouldn't tell my own daughter to go to most colleges.

·
·

Ive learned its ok to not listen to your parents sometimes and just go with your gut instinct, they are not always right lol thanks!

Great blog aggroed! I new to this as well..I've now gotten my husband and daughter so sign up for Steemit. I tell them how much my BTC/ETH etc. have increased & it has sparked their interest.

You're a brave man ;)

·

She's a nice lady.

@aggroed
a friend of mine told me about the madela effect and I've done a little research on it. I'm not sure if I have arrived at a full opinion about it yet. Thanks for posting and sharing!

·

Try this little quiz. I have a bigger one if you want that too. This one is a little trite. The next one might feel like brain missiles.

It's a rabbit hole. You've been warned :)

Dilemma gets me. Apparently it's always been spelt with two 'M's, but I know when I was a kid, it was 'Dilemna'.
Imagine writing 'column' one day, and having it correct to 'columm'.
So you google it, and it's always been 'columm'.

·

I refuse to spell definately any other way. I remember going over that word a thousand times. I picked up math better than just about everyone else at my school, but I struggled with reading. I know I sounded out the "ate" to learn it over and over.

·
·

It's always been 'definitely' in my mind 'finite' being the base.
What about enmity. Do you remember it as emnity?
Enmity sounds so wrong.

·
·
·

Em! For sure.

But the fact that people with perfect memories remember these things diffferently is what makes me think that there's a multiverse and it seems like we're combining. Or maybe it's like servers merging. This whole thing might just be a computer program. Tough to run a control experiment because I don't know how to get to a control universe :)

Or an organisation like the Ministry of Truth in 1984; testing our receptiveness to contradictory new histories.
We've always been at war with Eastasia.

Go for it, after all you've only got...

Interesting post, thanks for sharing your thoughts . I wish you all the best

Thanks fifth!

I suspect there are an awful lot of us here that believe we influence our own destinies. It takes believers to jump into the untried and still-to-be-tested. I only wish that I knew about steem earlier. I still consider anyone joining now to be early adopters, but how much longer that will last is anyone's guess.

·

This is def the beginning!

I will look forward to reading your post in a year's time, when you tell everyone that you have given up your job and are blogging full time :-)

·

Working on it. Hey, I know you voted for me. I'm nervous that you then clicked the blue box next to my name and unvoted me. If you can see my name under the box where you write it in you've voted for me. If it isn't there you kicked me off. Will you check to see if my name shows up on the witness page under the list of 50?

·
·

Double checked and your name is there :-)

·
·
·

WOOT! We're good! Thanks scottish! Cause without a Scottish vote it's crap!

·
·
·
·

Love it :-)

@aggroed Thank you for your upvote on my recent post entitled: THE DAY I MET THE QUEEN, MANDELA & PRESIDENT OBAMA

Generally, that kinda of spammy shit will catch you a down vote and ruin that reputation you started earning. Especially, because I hadn't voted for it. IN this case I did toss it an upvote, but next time I'll flag it.

Wow amazing

this is a great post thank you for sharing! we believe a lot of similar/same weird shit apparently.... i think youre pretty sane for the weird shit u believe, and it defs sucks how rigged the entire system is and yeah fuck the banksters. i dont entirely understand the whole witness thing yet but congratulations on followers and witness votes! good on u dude, again thanks for the share

·

At a minimum a witness is a guy running a server that helps build the blockchain, which is all the information getting stored around here. I tend to also think of it like a true elected position. Like a steemit senator. Gotta help people and help the platform.

·
·

maybe try not to think of it as what senators are so much as what senators are supposed to be, senator...... ;)
just a corruption joke prolly not funny tho.
okay yeah what i read is you always have to have a separate computer running a server and that computer is always on?
how do you get votes, simply by participating in the community as you already are- and then stating your intention to be a witness. then just community members hook u votes or can only witnesses give u votes? can i vote for you? thanks for responding bru

Sure. steemit.com/~witnesses

Under the list of 50 type in my name. If you see my name under it we're good and you've voted for me. If you click something and my name goes away then you have unvoted me.

You get votes like this! :)

Good post aggroed, my wife doesn't get the whole crypto currency world so I'm going to have to build up my accounts to show her the future.

Keep it up buddy.
