Happy new year everyone!!! This is my first post in 2021 and a great way to kick it off with a PUD post.
About ten days ago I finally reached my goal to get to Orca status, da da!!!! How cool is that?! Ok maybe not if you're a whale or already an orca, but then you're the minority on Hive and see things differently from the rest of us 😃
December was a quiet month for me, I only made 12 posts, but I did create a new community (more on that in a minute). I had 51000 HP in the December PUD and have powered up considerably less than previous months, 448 HP to be exact of which 100 HP was powered up a few moments ago to support PUD. The biggest power up of 300 HP was made 10 days ago to get myself over the line to become an Orca, an early Christmas present for myself. My current HP is 52,915. Getting to my Orca goal doesn't mean everything stops. I will continue to keep my stake and power up what I earn on Hive.
PUD Guessing Game
I will also be continuing with my PUD Guessing Game this year. I love hosting them as it gives me a motivation to find some interesting photos every month. I also love to see my friends, old and new join in to have some fun. Often a new unfamiliar name drops by and that's even better as it's a great way to meet new people on Hive.
Last month I started a Toys on Hive community https://peakd.com/c/hive-173630/created. Since I don't have any toys at home, I went out to buy something to play with.... a set of Tumbling Blocks, and I posted about it in the community. The idea of the game is you pile all the blocks in layers like a tall tower, and each layer has three blocks. Then you have take it in turns to remove the blocks one by one, and place them on the top. Whoever causes the tower to tumble over loses the game. If you haven't tried this before, I highly recommend it, it great fun!!!
This months PUD Guessing Game is How many blocks are there in this set? One big tip is that each layer has three blocks. I have put all the blocks out in four separate piles here so you can count them easier. And if you want an even bigger tip, you can check it my post.
Drop your answer below as a comment, and I'll be upvoting your answer with my mini Orca account 😆 💃 to encourage more people to join in the fun. The prize pool is 20 Hive for the person who makes the correct guess, and if there are more than one winner they will split the prize. The contest will close at post payout.
The Toys on Hive community currently has a Christmas Toys contest. You can share any stories related to Chrismas toys, a few ideas are anything you received or gifted, any toys you play with at Christmas, or any Chirstmas toys that have special meaning to you. As long as it's related to Christmas and toys, go for it and be creative. The contest closed on 4th January and you can check this post for more information.
