Dipping A Toe Back In

Seven months. That's how long ago my last post here went live. After that, I dropped off the Steem world. Why? Well, that's complicated, but I'll try my best to explain.

I was deeply involved in a Discord writing community called The Writers' Block. This was born from a channel on the Minnow Support Project. Through that transition, I made some decisions that deeply affected some genuine friendships I had made. I had blinders on and looked only to the future, striving to build something that at the time I thought worth pursuing.

Through the first internal conflict at The Writers' Block my blinders remained, dead set was I on the course I had set myself. I lost a great deal more friends in the turmoil, and for that, I am deeply sorry.

I joined a witness team, despite politics not being my thing. That didn't end well as my choices again affected and hurt people around me. 'I'm sorry' seems so hollow.

Another conflict happened at The Writers' Block, but this time my blinders had slipped a little. I couldn't continue to stand by and let these things happen on my watch. So I left.

I continued my self inflicted lonely path for a few months. At the time I was a curator for @OCD, but Steem felt empty and devoid of any interest to me. I said my goodbyes to @acidyo and left that worthy project.

I was no longer excited to be posting new content regularly. So I simply slipped away, taking myself away from any communities and chances of hurting anyone else.

So, why have I returned here and shared this? Firstly, I want to own my mistakes, and I accept that many were made. I chose the wrong people and the wrong path. I don't expect to be welcomed back with open arms by all the people I have hurt by turning my back on them. I know I was wrong and am aware that apologies have long been overdue and won't be accepted. I get it.

Secondly, I don't really do social media, but I am hungry for an outlet. I enjoy writing, sharing my world and whatever knowledge I may impart and receive. I miss having a place to do that. In that regard, I miss Steem.

So, this is a tentative dipping of the toe into the often murky waters of Steem. I still have a passion for writing, sharing Wordpress tutorials and 3D modeling. Hopefully, I'll post again soon.

Muxxy.

Hello Muxxy,

Don't really know what went down, but as far as I can see it's been a year of tension so you're not alone. That said, it takes humility and shows the mark of the man to offer such a sincere apology. Welcome back dude!!

Cheers ears 😜

Hey there! I'm completely out of the loop on what happened and why you left...but I accept your apology. Haha I'm kidding. It takes a lot of humbling and setting aside of your pride to apologize. What I know of you, you're a good man. I hope the best for your social media ventures!

I didn't want to make a drama out of it so I slipped away.

Thanks for your words, they mean a lot to me.

Hope to see you around more often in this neck of the woods

Thanks very much.

Hi Muxx, great to see you on Steem again.

Hope you will be sticking around.

Can be a bit quiet, but SMTs have finally (just about) arrived and Communities are just weeks away - so some vibrant times ahead.

There has been talk of a meetup over the right hand side of England - Shrewsbury / Hereford way...

I didn't realise you did shoes.

Your website muxxy.co.uk seems to go off to a shoe site.

That's a shame - I thought I had found the first Steem powered shoe shop 😀

Hey dude, I'm good. Hope you're well.

Hey @gmuxx, welcome back. I see your profile indicates you are a webdev, can you do css frontend optimisation?

·

Hi and thanks. Css front end is outside my wheelhouse I'm afraid. I specialise in Wordpress development.

·

ah ok no probs, will let you know if we ever have wordpress requirements.

Hey dude, hope you are well.

I don't know what went down in the past but it's a small community right now and we have seen plenty of issues over the past few years which were aggravated by people refusing to talk it out and get the problems settled. You've obviously had some as well but your attitude is good to come back and make the peace so hopefully you can get back into STEEM properly and feel at home again.

There is no point in people hanging onto grudges within a small group and it's better to get them settled and move forward as we want everybody to enjoy being part of the community.

Welcome back and hope you stay this time for the long haul.

Thank you

Hi Muxxy. It's good to see you again around here. There are no hard feelings on our side. I was not in the loop early enough to know about the first conflicts. I'm really not sure I know about later conflicts either, I can only make guesses. I just know that you are welcome to be part of Steemhouse any time.

Hi Muxxy, so good to see you here. I just looked you up, wondering if you had posted anytime recently, and here you are! Well... a little over a week ago. I think if you miss Steem, you should come back. Whatever all went down, it's water under the bridge now!

The waters murkey, a little smelly, but we're still here! Welcome back to the Steem world @gmuxx. We've missed ya!

Hi @gmuxx, couldn't find you on discord. Just want to ask you about the wordpress site because I can't seem to access mine. Is everything okay on ur end?

·

hey, he hosts mine too and it just went down today - did you have any luck getting a hold of him? thanks

I am unable to access the wordpress site too like @zord189. Are you going to continue the service as it is almost time for the payment of my subscription fee in two months.
