Time Time Time, it is a new year, a new beginning for me. Lots of stuff is on my mind and on my to do list, but one the things I haven't done in a while which I have missed was checking on how my precious Steem is doing. Not on the CMC.....nobody cares about that at the moment, but what is going on on the blockchain itself. Are there any new developments going on? Is there any news? What am I missing?
And that is when the question of @theycallmedan fits in perfectly. How has Steem impacted my life for the fact that I still want to see what is going on, even though I am also in my process of emigrating back to my home country.
I guess for the answer we always have to go back to where the motivation for writing at all has started. In my case the started when I was living in the Caribbean. Venting about the perks on what was going on my happy island Sint Martin in combination with lovely images from azurblue seas, that was my game. I did this on a Dutch blogging site and here and there on the side I made a buck while waiting a lot. Because that is one of the things that you do in the Caribbean a lot, we wait ;)
When hurricane Irma struck us, I learned about Steem and the power of what it was able to do. The months in the aftermath of the hurricane were weird. There was a lot of work to be done, and at night it was not always safe enough to hit the road, as it was before. I stayed home a lot of these months, and Steem was an awesome newsfeed at this time. This was around the 2018 crypto madness and everybody was writing on how and what. Ofcourse these are blogs, but every blog has a big of a truth in there, and so I was learning into a whole new world of digital value for me all of a sudden.
