@ rival - new witness on the block - Chasing my dreamssteemCreated with Sketch.

in witness-category •  2 months ago

Dear all, I am very thankful to letting you all know that from yesterday I am a new witness on Steemit.

I started Steemit almost 4 months ago. I really loved it from day 1. You can read my story here.

Why a witness

Being a witness is a logical next step. A witness can help the total network and as I love the platform I would also make my contribution to it.

My server

Do you really want to know...? I had some frustrations the last days. Selected a wrong VPS couldn't install it and had to invest in another one. see my blogs about is

But now I have a very good one. The company is responsive, quick and everything was arranged within 30 minutes after buying.
The company is : https://www.server4you.net/

I choose to have a dedicated server. After my VPS terror I wouldnt risk another mistake. I also selected the 32GB version so that I am ready for the future.. When we are out of beta things will go fast.

About me

I am 42 years old. Living together for 15 years with my wonderful girlfriend and have 2 kids a daughter (12 years) and a boy (10 years). We also have our own house bird “Nemo” . I live in a small village in the Netherlands.

Last 2 years I work as a Functional IT specialist were I “try” to implement improved business processes which help a company grow. These processes are the golden eggs of a company. Before I was more technical IT, but this will slowly die because in a few years all technical platforms will be just factories in big datacenters. You can make the difference in business processes!!

My dream

As you can read everywhere in my posts I want to go the the USA in year 2019 with my family for a once in a lifetime holiday.

What did I do in 4 months I am on steemit?

First of all, blogging and commenting like everyone does. But I think I can say I am dedicated to it and love to give some proper comments..

But

I also tried to make some initiatives but it's really hard to get noticed as minnow. I really did my best. So I hope that being a witness also makes my initiatives more known.
just an example:

Idea of a Worldwide Steemit day:

And ( don't tell it to anybody else) I am the STEEM POWER RANGER

Thanks

First of all I want to thank the whole Steemit community who makes this all possible.
Special thanks to @drakos @someguy123 @reggaemuffin who helped me with questions preparing my server.

Thank you for reading.

Hi, I'm just curious, can we host / being a steemit witness using our home PC?
or can we change to another server/PC later?

No that Will not work. Its very ram consuming And you need a Linux server for it

Good luck it must be frustrating sometimes. 😀 😃 😄 😁 Have a wonderful day!

All the best @rival! In four months it looks like you already did a long way.. When i came to the point of the steem power ranger I understood that I had to vote you as a witness :-D

Vanuit de Lions legion op discord gezien. Nederlanders volg ik, dus jou ook ;)

Dank je wel. Ik hoop dat je me ook als witness wil stemmen.
