in #hive5 months ago (edited)

Next month would have been my four year anniversary on Steemit. Except that I quit using it the day of the hardfork.

We can choose to jump about in dog shit and then complain that our shoes stink, or we can look at stuff we like better than dog shit instead. Yesterday I was chilling out and taking photos at the waterfront (Wellington, New Zealand). I might do a post about that too, but here is one photo to spice this geeky little post up a bit.


I learned a lot on Steemit, including what not to do. Here are five things I gave up doing when I started out on Hive because each one of them is a part of what buggered Steemit.

  1. ARGUING WITH CLUELESS FUCKERS. I understand now that arguing on the internet is like seeing some dog shit and choosing to stand in it rather than stepping over it. So I stopped doing that.
  2. BEING A DICKHEAD. If someone I follow posts something I think is bollocks, rather than trying to "educate" them, I now choose to shut my pie hole and let them be.
  3. USING MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS. I had accounts for posting, accounts for trading liquid Steem, accounts for being a dickhead, and accounts that were blacklisted for trying to educate whales. It was bloody confusing. Yes I do still have all those accounts on Hive, but now they are all powered down and all my investment and attention is in this one.
  4. KEEPING MY INVESTMENT LIQUID. Steemit was a very dodgy investment, so from 2018 I kept most of my Steem liquid and had very little long term investment in the platform. On Hive I'm doing my best to be an investor and curator as well as a content creator. So I'm taking a much more committed approach to Hive - I'm invested in the platform and doing my best to help it grow.
  5. LONGING FOR THE GLORIOUS PAST ON STEEMIT. Back in 2016 and 2017 we did some cool posts and made some good wedge, but these days I'm fully powered down, and I don't speak Korean, so there is no reason for me to ever look at Steemit again. My old posts are all on there, and I still have a bunch of accounts on there I don't use. None of that is worth a look. If people want to double post and still use the old platform, it's beyond me why, but I don't care, and won't be sneaking a look. That site is ancient history and I'm very glad to move on.
Two days ago the weather here was really crap...


The very next day it was much better and there was little fluffy clouds. Remember little fluffy clouds? Back in 1990 the music was awesome. But all things keep moving along. Watch out for dog shit!


Hahah, I've heard that chick's voice in so many house/techno/dubstep/etc remixes over the years. Thanks for showing me where it came from. Or at least, closer to where it came from, anyway. :)
Steem pisses me off. Everybody there is catching $10 to $30 payouts for total shitposts. I'm trying my hardest and I can't even make 50 cents. Not that Hive is any better for me, but it just makes me mad to see all the money flying around, to everybody except me. (Conspiracies and cannabis are both heavily stigmatized topics even in 2020.)

It's all who you know and whale-watch with!

That sucks because I hate pretty much everybody else, and don't whale-watch! :P

Sometimes you step back and accidentally step in dog doo anyway. At this point what do you do? 🤔

Keep marching forward with gusto and leap over giant turds in a single bound!


Thanks for sharing this, also thanks for the Juicy upvote. Thanks for visiting my blog 😊❣️ gracias 💪

You know, people usually only try to quit one bad habbit at a time
But FIVE all at once!?

I am really proud of you for finding a place.

But it is really weird how, what amounts to just a name change, changed many things.

Like, St**mits trending page is all in Korean.
Mind blown

I go cold turkey long time!


Little fluffy clouds. Experimental mixes were a sign of the late 80s and 90s. They were played on the radio and the dance floor. Somehow they changed to crap somewhere in the 2000s.

Things change. However, New Zealand looks awesome even on a crappy day.

I strongly agree with #4. You are doing great with curation^^ and liquid will be necessary at times like when there is a price spike.

I learned that I everybody says "Steem will moon" and "power up" doesn't mean we have to do it. I felt good posting in Hive.

Don't shoot me but I post in Steem also but write a little different style.


"I post in Steem also but write a little different style"

LOL - which translator app are you using :)

에도 게시하지만 약간 다른 스타일을 작성합니다.


어떻게 알았어요?

나는 당신의 모든 움직임을보고 있습니다


LOL. 그런데 저는 번역기 없시 한국말 해요.

Steemit은 완벽한 플랫폼입니다!

Top trending post on Steemit today (payout 105 Steem):

(Now don't let anyone say k.steemit is nothing but appalling shitposts in Korean!)

Start early football

I've been exercising and building walls in recent years, but I'm very happy with my friend's recommendation and joined an early football club.

Since it was the first day, I tried to loosen my body, but due to the lack of people, I entered a full-time game.

(Insert a badly framed out of focus low res photo here)

I woke up at dawn and played three games.

Others are not sure if it is only me

I wonder if I can do this every week, but I promise to do my best to work for my health.

I had a soccer shoe at home, so I took it and it seemed that my sole wasn't showing off.

First of all, I should proceed with the purchase of soccer shoes.

If you have good football shoes on artificial turf, please recommend

Have a relaxing holiday^^

Congratulations. Beautifully written shit.

The trends do suck.

k.shit is a whole new lower level of shit!


I love all of these points! and I am going to apply these same ideas!!

We can be blockchain Eckharts!


I think eckhart stole Buckminster Fuller's life and remarketed it for NOW and is simply an Oprah MK ULTRA Handler

On the top , fluffy clouds can blur ones view ;-)

NZ is full of fluff!


5 points I pretty much have been doing all along... Good advice to all ./ learn from the past...

CAT FIGHTS ... can be a learning experience...



PS - There are no Korean words for clueless fuckers or dickheads, so I would be totally fucked in Korea or on Steemit :)

CLUELESS FUCKERS와 논쟁. 인터넷에서 논쟁하는 것은 개 똥을보고 그것을 밟지 않고 서 있기를 선택하는 것과 같습니다. 그래서 나는 그 일을 중단했다.
DICKHEAD가되는 것. 내가 팔로우하는 사람이 "교육"을 시도하는 대신 볼록이라고 생각하는 게시물을 보게되면 이제 파이 구멍을 닫아 놓게됩니다.
여러 계정 사용. 게시 계정, 액체 Steem 거래 계정, 성가신 계정 및 고래 교육을 위해 블랙리스트에 올린 계정이 있습니다. 피의 혼란이었다. 예, 여전히 Hive에 모든 계정이 있지만 지금은 모두 전원이 꺼져 있으며 모든 투자와 관심이이 계정에 있습니다.
투자액 유지. Steemit은 매우 어려운 투자 였기 때문에 2018 년부터 Steem 액체의 대부분을 유지했으며 플랫폼에 대한 장기 투자는 거의 없었습니다. Hive에서는 콘텐츠 제작자이자 투자자 및 큐레이터가되기 위해 최선을 다하고 있습니다. 그래서 저는 Hive에 대해 훨씬 더 헌신적 인 접근 방식을 취하고 있습니다. 저는 플랫폼에 투자하고 성장을 돕기 위해 최선을 다하고 있습니다.
STEEMIT에서 영광스러운 과거를 기다립니다. 2016 년과 2017 년에 우리는 멋진 게시물을 작성하고 좋은 쐐기를 만들었지 만 요즘 나는 완전히 전원이 꺼져 있고 한국어를 할 줄 몰라 Steemit을 다시 볼 이유가 없습니다. 내 오래된 게시물이 모두 거기에 있으며 여전히 사용하지 않는 계정이 많이 있습니다. 그 중 어느 것도 살펴볼 가치가 없습니다. 사람들이 이중 게시를 원하고 여전히 이전 플랫폼을 사용하려는 경우 왜 저쪽에 있지만, 상관하지 않으며 몰래 보이지 않을 것입니다. 그 사이트는 고대 역사이며 계속해서 다행입니다.
