It has happened... As of today, 14:30-ish, I am a Steem Witness!
I got the node fully operational up and running!
The technical part worked out fine, with some hurdles, and a little help from my friends ;-)
But I'll post more about that later on.
Now on to the second part of being a Steem Witness: getting votes! Will you be the first one to vote for me? It doesn't cost you, no SteemPower, no VotingPower, nothing, just one of the 30 Witness Votes you have available!
You can vote for me at this link: https://steemit.com/~witnesses -> scroll way down until below the top 100 list, and use the textbox to vote for me: bjornb
If you feel like all this Witness Voting stuff is too big a hassle for you, you can also select someone as a proxy to vote for you. So... why not choose me as your proxy? Right??? ;-)
You can set me as your proxy here at the same link: https://steemit.com/~witnesses -> scroll way down until below the top 100 list, and the textbox to vote, and you will see the proxy textbox. Just enter me there: bjornb
I will use your votes and your proxy things wisely, promised! ;-)
And now, just for you, and because I am still a photographer besides being a Steem Witness, just a nice picture of a nice flower I once took ;-)
