This will be my official witness announcement post. I have decided to put more of my time, energy, and money behind this truly amazing community by becoming a witness, if you'll have me. I would have done this much earlier but my time was taken up by an abundance of things and there just wasn't room for it. Now that I have dedicated more time to steemit and feel that I can give it the attention it deserves and requires, I figured it was a good time to start.
Hopefully most of you know me by now / have had the opportunity to meet at SteemFest. I have been an active user here for over a year (July being my anniversary!) and my hope is that I have made an impact on both you and the community. I know most witness applications have a list of influential Steemit projects and posts accompanying them, but since I recently created a anniversary post I'll share that here instead.
Recently I have started a new initiative to bring awareness and visibility to those deserving. Make sure to go and check it out The BlueOrgy UpVote Initiative.
2x (1x backup) Ubuntu 16.04.2 x64 on 160 GB SSD Disk - 4x Intel CPU - 8 GM RAM - 450 Mbit/s - NYC
Have monitoring on both and 99.999% Uptime with automatic backup. I can and will upgrade when needed depending on witness position.
I will be doing regular witness updates and will always be looking out for opportunities to make STEEM and Steemit bigger and better. I will do my best to make the correct decision when it comes to HARDFORKS and other decisions that would impact the community.
I hope that I may gain your trust and your witness approval.
