View this post on Hive: I'm mourning for Steem | Will see you on the other side

Dear reader - Steem has been renamed to Hive since May 2020. My content therefore has moved with me to Hive, and I hope to see you there: peakd.com/@soyrosa.

Hey, @soyrosa.

I'm feeling it, too. I haven't been so consistent with posting anywhere until STEEM. I suppose the same could happen on HIVE, but it's not just an automatic thing. Maybe in a little while I'll feel better. :)

I really don't think we can trust Justin.

I think that's largely the point about all of this. We shouldn't have to trust him, or anyone else, for that matter, because no one person should have that much influence or ability to affect change. When they can't, it's less a matter of trust as it is the freedom to be more involved and more of an agent of your own destiny.

Without a major miracle, that doesn't happen on STEEM from Friday forward. Whatever is left of STEEM goes to TRON or goes away. Either thought is sad, but most of what truly makes STEEM, well, STEEM, will be on HIVE anyway, (and just for the record, whatever baggage and dirty laundry we've had here, we'll be taking with us to HIVE), and most likely, the rest of the folks will follow in short order. Where else is there to go where there's even a potential for the community that's been on STEEM where at least decentralization is being talked about, if not actually being achieved on different levels?

I'm sounding like a cheerleader for HIVE. I'm actually not. I have many of the same feelings as you. I think I'm just trying to cheer you up. :) Thanks for being one of those to hold on through thick and thin for the last two-plus years (right now it's seeming like longer). There aren't a lot of us left that came in together.


I can always trust your comments to have depth and sincerity, I appreciate that about you. We're basically Steem Twins, born here at the same time, so I guess we'll now both move to Hive at the same time with very similar thoughts and feelings too.

I also could've written the more 'upbeat' version of this post, and a lot of words you wrote in your comment could've been mine too, but I also wanted to let all these other feelings out, as I really do feel the sadness.

Ah, you know, we will see many familiar faces on Hive, and I actually believe it won't take very long before we browse on one of the Steem frontends and don't recognize the place anymore... That's when we know we'll have made the right decision.

Cheers and a 100% upvote because rules don't apply anymore anyway :D

I have my doubts too but staying here is not an option and I don't have a backup plan right now. See you there!


<3 See you there @fotostef!

Yeah i see you on the other side.


See you on the other side!

See you on the other side! I hope you found the solution to the censorship on Steemit. ❤


See you on the other side! Let's make 'that place' censorship free and owned by us.

See there? I knew you'd help me make my decision. Thank you.

I go with what I feel too, and so am going to give hive a try.

Removing Hive branded posts? Really? If that's the spirit of Steem now, I don't want any more. Like you, I'll check in. But anything I do will be with a new attitude in a new place.


<3 Glad I could help you to make a decision! We're not sure if it's the right one, but staying here is definitely looking grimmer and grimmer.

And yes, maybe it's a fresh start for all of us where we can have a different attitude and breathe in some fresh air.

See you there Tom <3

I am not sure if I can see you there. My connection is too slow to load a site and I need an easy app like partiko. Partiko won't work and @esteemapp is too slow.
Might be this is the end of my blockchain exoeriences and I am off again.
I wish you good luck. 💕

I hope there will be a mobile app soon - I'm sure there's some renewed energy with some people to make Hive work. I hope to see you once you find a way that works for you :-)


Thank you. I hope so too. 💕

Honestly, I'm sad, but I'm also frustrated because now I have to learn something new on the blockchain (again) and this isn't my focus right now. I haven't posted in forever and this doesn't make it easier. Thank you for helping keep the community together, though. I appreciate you.


Hey @katrina-ariel, I will help you through EVERY STEP! I really believe it's going to be all the same except for the URL. Even your keys will be the same :-) So for just posting and commenting just go to hive.blog starting tomorrow and I think you'll be surprised how little there is to 'learn'.

Hope to see you there <3


Thanks, love!

See you tomorrow ;)


See ya ;-)

Very similar feelings here Rosa. Every goodbye is hard for us, sensitive people...

Let´s try and focus on the positive though. I am sure we can do great things on Hive. See you there.
