Thank You, Steem! It's Been Quite a Ride 💙

7개월 전

It takes a heap of licks to strike a nail in the dark.

Turning on the light might help, but what if someone else is comfortably sitting on the switch and you just can't get there?

I will take a break from no longer be creating content on Steem and wish you guys all the best for your future journey.

There's been a lot of great developments and improvements coming out of the community lately, and given that starting point I hope you'll be able to convert this place into a truly decentralized world some day.

My fingers are crossed 🤞

On a little side note: I was interviewed about Steem and Steemit by a New Yorker journalist recently, so there's probably gonna be another coverage being published soon. I'll keep you posted on this one anyways.

Til then I'll be most likely paddling into some wave.

Stay steemy, my friends.

😍 Es war schön so lange es gedauert hat.

Thanks for having introduced me to the network back in summer 2016. It's been a great time and I definitely learned for life!

I feel you, life is calling out for you...

It doesn't matter... try to give the right answer... and who knows...

Schade! Auch wenn wir uns nicht allzu oft über den Weg liefen (und irgendwann am Anfang gar eine kleine Auseinandersetzung hatten), teile ich viele deiner Ansichten (hat mich sehr gefreut, dich auf SteemFest 3 persönlich kennenzulernen).
Ich fühle, dass ich mit dir eine Unterstützerin verliere, die, so wie ich, ebenfalls versucht hat, die Interessen derjenigen zu vertreten, die den Wert einer Plattform in aktiven Usern und gutem Content messen!
Was ich priorisieren würde, schrieb ich in meiner "STEEM-Vision". Vielleicht siehst du das ja ähnlich?

Um ehrlich zu sein, kann ich mir einen endgültigen Abschied deinerseits kaum vorstellen, zu viel Zeit und Engagement hast du bereits investiert (ja, ich sehe nicht nur Menschen, die viel Geld irgendwo reinstecken, als "Investoren"). Mach doch einfach eine erholsame Pause, um etwas Abstand zu gewinnen ... und komm dann wieder zurück ... :)

·

Servus @jaki01! Vielen lieben Dank für Deinen Kommentar und auch den Link zu Deinem (sehr gelungenen!) Artikel. Wir teilen hier mal wieder viele Ansichten, und dieser Satz hat mir besonders gut gefallen:

Decisive for the success of STEEM, however, in my opinion, in the end will be its
ability not only to attract new users, but also to retain them permanently.
Newcomers should feel comfortable here and soon consider our blockchain as their new 'virtual home'.

Diese aktuelle Grafik von @arcange aus seinen Steem Statistiken vom 25.5.2019 belegt leider, dass Steem schon seit sehr langer Zeit ein Retention Problem hat.
retentiononsteem.png

Es ist schade, dass wir alle uns vermutlich zu lange auf Steemit, Inc verlassen haben, und nicht schon früher (so wie es jetzt passiert) mehr Dinge selbst umgesetzt haben. Möglicherweise ist es nun zu spät, da die Marke Steem bereits extrem gelitten hat und im gesamten Crypto Markt einfach überhaupt keine Lobby mehr hat. Selbst viele der großen Believer der ersten Stunde haben aufgegeben und widmen sich nun neuen Projekten.

Ich wünsche Euch allen von Herzen, dass Ihr das Ruder noch einmal herumreißen könnt. In der Tat habe ich hier viel Zeit investiert, aber ich wurde ja auch fürstlich dafür entlohnt, insofern war das wohl ein Win Win für alle Beteiligten :-) Ein Comeback wird's nicht geben, da ich schon mit einem Fuß im nächsten Projekt stecke, aber ich werde vermutlich trotzdem immer mal wieder heimlich rein schauen und gucken wie es so läuft.

Dir alles Gute und nochmals lieben Dank, dass Du hier noch einmal vorbei geschaut hast!
Grüß Deine zauberhafte Familie von mir :-)

·
·

Dann wünschen meine Frau (danke für die Grüße!) und ich dir alles Gute für dein zukünftiges Projekt und auch sonst viel Glück (und hoffen, ab und zu von dir zu hören)!

Sorry to see you go. I suppose that means you won't be at SteemFest 4. :-(

·

Yeah, that implies I won't be there. Wishing you a blast in BKK! :-)

·
·

Thanks.
I'm sorry that you and some other older Steemians were made promises that have not been kept.

But for me but I'm very happy after 15 months on Steem earning between $1-10 for posts and seeing amazing functionality like SteemPeak, Partiko, Steem Engine, Steem Keychain, Nitrous, MIRA, Hivemind, Steem Monsters, Next Colony etc etc.
I see that distribution of Steem is gradually becoming less concentrated and my share is increasing.

Maybe Ned promised too much.

But I'm pretty impressed with what so many groups are achieving, includng Steemit Inc under Eli's direction. What they've achieved since the reorg and cutbacks is nothing short of amazing.

I hope you return some day like Obi Wan or Luke Skywalker. Not that I'm suggesting that return should precede your spectacular death. :-)

Hahaha, I bet you're doing well in the #funny section :-D

You're totally right: there's a lot of developments in the pipeline, and I also touched on that in my post. It may be a great basis for a new beginning.

It's evident that Steem would need a complete makeover in order to succeed, especially with regards to governance. It would also need a huge portion of lobbying in order to reshape the brand perception in the crypto market. Right now most people are smiling at Steem but not taking it seriously as a potential investment. Same happens with media, there is basically zero coverage.

But well you guys know all that already :-)

Keep rocking!

So sad to see you go @surfermarly; you were one of my first inspirations here, and a major reason why I stuck it out here beyond a few months.

You have new horizons to explore, and I wish you exciting adventures! You're a bright shining star, and don't ever let anyone cast a shadow on your brilliance!

Safe travels!

·

The pleasure was mine, @denmarkguy! I always enjoyed our conversations to the max, thanks for your time and wisdom - and the super lovely words you found for this comment :-)

I'll try to be shining as much as I can 🙃

All the best for you, too!!!

Hey Surfermarly,

I'm sad for Steem and happy for you, there comes a time that it is time to finish a chapter and start a new one.

Best of luck and if check in once in a while!

·

Thanks for your lovely words and wishes, @whatsup!
Give the discord crew a huge hug 😘

There's a lack of engagement now and as you said in another comment, the platform only benefits the few now which in a way it always has but this is becoming more pronounced.

The possibility of of it empowering especially the people who needed a boost is what brought me here along with the chance to read great content which has also diminished. There are too many people 'up their own arses' and suggested changes will only make the problem of reward distribution skew even further in the direction of the ever increasingly powerful.

I wish you every happiness and hope you get well soon...I hear jigsaws are pretty safe ;-)

Finally, don't forget that everything we experience is an instantly temporary state.

There will still be a beer here in Bangkok with your name on it.

Stay wet n wild lady

Thank-you

Nathen! Your comments have always put a smile on my face, and you know that. Big times!

Too many have opted for short term gain instead of long term invest here, and that's why the whole ecosystem doesn't work anymore. There's not enough incentives to produce and reward good content, and those who could make a difference don't want to since they highly benefit from the situation as it is.

A fish rots from the head down.

Talking about engagement: I don't think I have ever received more comments on any of my articles than on this one here, haha. I guess that's quite characteristical.

Enjoy life, Nathen - and that beer with my name on it :-)
Big hugs

you are right
Greed leads to perdition in the latter, unfortunately

People will never stop being greedy. But you can create an algorithm that incentivizes less greedy behavior, hence more community-oriented action.

Hi Marly

I know I've spoken to you privately, but I think an on chain message is needed too.

Thank you for the positive vibes and work you have done for Steem, I understand that if your heart is elsewhere, then you better go follow it.

Take care, enjoy the summer, and keep in touch :) x

·

That's a sweet move, Ash 😍
Thanks a lot for your lovely words and of course for the AMAZING conversations on- and off chain. It was a lucky break to come to know you here and we'll keep in touch anyways.

Right now my heart is on the tennis court, hehe. So that's where I'll supposedly spend most of my time this summer.

Big big hugzzz & remember: good things come to good people 🙃😘

I'm saddened by the news! This chain without your blogging will be pretty desolate. Hopefully, this doesn't mean you won't be in touch with fellow steemians and stopping by for our discord shenanigans! Either way, its been a ride & you will be missed Marly!

·

Thanks for your sweet words, QA! I'll be missing you guys, too.
Send some big hugs to those discord shenanigans 😘
The night Eagle, you and I got lost will be unforgettable.

I quit posting and powered down about 4 months ago, just this last week I have put up a few posts just to see what would happen, it’s been slow going, nary a comment. Best of luck to you.

·

Yeah, I've noticed that trend, too. Not quite the ambient we found here when we joined in 2016, right? :-)
All the best to you, too!

I’m speechless @surfermarley - you’re one of my inspirations in here.

I wish you the very best in your best chapter ✌🏾☀️🌟✨

Thanks for the love, buddy! :-)
I wish you the very best for your journey, too.

Whaat? That's a big hit for steem tbh..you've been one of the best content creators around the block here..Good luck in your next adventures :) Hope to see you back in the future! :)

·

Thanks for the flowers, buddy! You're a great vlogger, I always appreciated your content. Keep it coming :-)

Wow it feels really really flat here in steemland with so many long term Steemians giving up and moving on. You have been one of the most interesting, inspirational and consistent posters on Steem for o long time. I hope to see you back soon. Ohh and I hope you feel better soon. You’ve had your share of surfing injuries but I admire you’re tenacity. ✌️ 💗 🦄 🏄‍♀️

·

Thanks for your lovely words, Stephen!
Well they've all left for a reason. I've been thinking about that step for a while now. A couple of statements from Steemit, Inc were the determining factor that finally convinced me to go.

Steem is a great idea, but as it is designed today only a handful of people are efectively benefiting from it. I just don't want to support that any longer.

The foot is doing much better. Still green and blue, haha I guess I'll be back in the water by next week.

See you around Stephen 🙃🤙

·
·

I think that with my travelling over the past 6 weeks i’ve Missed some important changes. I hope that we don’t lose the special ecosystem that has been developed over the past 3 years.

·
·
·

Crossing my fingers for the future of the network 🤞

Can I ask why you're taking a break? Is it due to the accident or something else?

I hope you get well soon! We'll miss you :^)

Posted using Partiko Android

·

Sure you can. I slightly touched on it in the first paragraph of my blog post.
Only a handful of people are efectively benefiting from the system as it is designed now. Since there are no signs that this is going to change at any time, I don't want to support that /them any longer. I've been here for almost three years and have seen how this place changed over time.

You can try to stay positive and motivate people, but then you get to the point where you don't believe yourself anymore. So here I am, ready for some new adventures 🙃

Thanks for stopping by and all the best to you, too!

·
·

I do understand that sentiment, and the way the system is designed is a reality.

But... what if communities and/or SMTs are coming? Would you not be the perfect person to be the moderator for a SURF community / token?

If I may ask, will you be joining another project instead or that's not relevant to your decision?

Anyways, good luck!

·
·
·

I'm sure you'll find an amazing blockchain surfer to promote the SURF token that btw was already created on Steem Engine:
https://steem-engine.com/?p=market&t=SURF

The project I'm going to join now is called life :-)

All the best to you, too!!

·
·
·
·

The plot thickens... :)

Good luck in your life!

I noticed that you have now decided to permanently stop authoring on Steem and also powering down @dreamsoftheocean

I will take a break from no longer be creating content on Steem and wish you guys all the best for your future journey.

Yes, current Steem ecosystem has many flaws but I believe it is going to improve soon and I hope you change your mind and comeback.

·

I hope one day Steem will become the place you all deserve :-)

Thanks for your support & all the best for your future journey!

Aww, shame. Im still not sure that leaving is the best choice honestly.

What i dont understand is why you dont just start a bot service and run for witness? Im sure @therealwolf, @themarkymark or a few others could help you set up everything you need.

A lot of people know you here and i know you did plenty good for the platform.
A top witness makes 35k a year which i think you could reach fairly easily.

Why leave when you can make plenty of money from the greed of others?

And you have a lot of advantage over the other bot owners. Fyrst looks like fat Thor from Avengers End Game. Marky and Wolfie dont really show their face.
(Sarcasm aside)
Its actually a funny thing that those that care the most arent those that we are left with. Those that care the most unfortunately, eventually leave not being able to stomach it any more....

What i wanted to say is... I wish you all the best.... Hopefully you find something that will make you as passionate. If you do... Pls let us know. :)

·

Hehe, that's an interesting idea. If I was here for the money, it could indeed be an option.

What got me really excited about Steem was its original vision of giving value back to those who create value. It was a true game changer, able to turn the whole attention economy upside down. But now Steem has just become like all the other centralized networks, where a few win and many lose.

Back in 2016 and early 2017 there was a true competition for rewards between content creators, and everybody was truly aiming to become the very best version of themselves. Man, THAT very moment when a whale stopped by and voted your content - what a thrill! Now you can just buy the votes and the attention, and the whole game has completely lost its sexiness.

Time to move on and go live a new sexy adventure.

My business in real life is doing pretty well and I'll be focussing on that now. Let's see if I can become as passionate about it as I was as a content creator :-)

Thanks for the nice comment, it's much appreciated!
All the best for you, too. xxx Marley -

·
·

@surfermarly I don't blame you which is why I would like to fork this chain. The only thing is how to prevent history from repeating itself. For the time being, I will try to work on improving our ecosystem to fight abuse.

I am with you about giving value to the people. I want to be sure it is to those that are putting in the work. Not just fat cats with money to throw around buying their way onto Trending everyday. That's not the vision I want to build on for too long.

I want it to change.

Thanks, sweetie! Both for your lovely words and the huge support provided in the past 🙃
All the best for you and your project!!

Do What You Love
Love What You Do!

Oh, Marley, im so sad to read your (last) post, mainly because I will miss your extraordinarily communicative energy and you always present big smile at next SteemFest.

We didn't spent much time together but you are one of those I loved to share a moment with.

I guess it was a hard decision but I truly understand your motivation.

I wish you A quick recovering from your last accident and all the best in your "new" life.

Take care. Big hug!

·

Oh, thank you so much for your lovely comment @arcange!
The pleasure was mine, I always enjoyed our conversations and it was great to meet in person at Steemfest.

Keep up the gamification, it's what this place needs :-) Gandalf @gtg will be proud of you, hehe

All the best & a big hug back!!

I'm sad to see such a bright person as you leave Steem. However, if it's what you need to it's what you need to do. Enjoy everything you're building off-Steem <3 Lots of luck to you!

·

Thank you very much @soyrosa!!! Keep rocking the Steem planet 🙃

Oh @surfermarly, I had no idea you felt this way, enough to up sticks at least.

You mean a lot to this place, and I especially am thankful to you for helping transform my work and motivation in the 60 Second campaign you lunched. It gave me a leg up and boosted my confidence.

I see exactly the reasons you don’t see fairness here anymore.
It’s something that worries me too.

All the best with your future work and feel free to stop by whenever you like ❤️

Thanks for your lovely comment, Ash! It's been great to get to know you during the 60 seconds campaign. That project is definitely going to be one of my favorite memories from the whole Steem journey :-) Your video will always be remembered and loved.

I guess I'll keep dropping some shots in my Instagram account from time to time: https://www.instagram.com/surfingdonkeys

Big hugs, Chris! It's been a blast.

·
·

That sounds good :) I’ll definitely be back - maybe in 2020. All the best wishes for the future - and given all your inspirational quotes I’ve read - I know you are going to have a great time, even if you never get round to seeing a surfing donkey! :)

·
·

Haha, I'm still working on those donkeys :-))
There's actually a true story behind that expression, and two years ago I blog posted about it on Steem. If you want to read it, here's the link :-)
I changed "flying donkeys" for "surfing donkeys" then for the only reason that the username @flyingdonkeys was already taken on Instagram, hehe

I guess there are few life experiences I haven't converted into a Steem post.

·
·
·

I read The Flying Donkey Project a great post. It’s a Marly classic. Yeah there is no doubt about it you have a big archive of content on here. Hope you can recover from the injury quickly until then you can enjoy the sea view with a beer!

You're upping the drama to new levels! Have a DRAMA.

To view or trade DRAMA go to steem-engine.com.

It is really unfortunate that it had to come to this (great content creators leaving steemit) but I agree with you, it is not the same place like it was 2016 when you had to create great content in order to receive up votes. I started to power down a few month ago for exactly the same reason.

I am interested to find out if MEOS will be better once / if it comes out and hope to meet you there!

·

I'll definitely check out MEOS if it will be ever launched. See you there :-)

Thanks for stopping by & have a great Monday

·

🙃 Thank you!!

you should check out somee social you might be surprised at what they are doing and you can be an early adopter on a platform that is already in beta and about to go full ham in a couple months rewards just went live and next will be add revenue this p[latform is designed for content creators to make real money from 1 place and your 1 post on the platform can be published on many other social media platforms including steemit

·

Sounds interesting, thanks for the hint.
All the best for you @d8niel77

·
·

im making 10 times more money on that platform than i am on steemit and im posting to a bunch of other platforms at the same time and their add revenue hasnt even gone live yet the money i am making is just from upvotes . therse not many people yet because its still in beta but once ad revenue kicks in and tests out in beta it will scale fast because this platform is designed for content producers to make serious money. for example depending on how many coins you stake you get 10% to 80% of the ad revenue. if you stake 125,000 coin you will get the 80% and you will have choice of the ads that align with your morals and beliefs. this isnt even counting the money you make from people upvoting your content and you upvoting others you have to power up coin just like steem in order to have more influence with votes but the cool thing right now is if you upvote yourself you lose your money that you get from people that upvoted you to eliminate the whales from just upvoting themselves everyday

·

check out most of my steemit posts they all came in from somee

Thanks for the detailed insight! I will have a look at it :-)

Hi @surfermarly,
I only just discovered this post after reading the one with the poll for Dreams of the Ocean. I am shocked and sad to see you go. To me you were one of the 'real' ones from the beginning.
But I understand, if your heart is elsewhere and with another project, you should put all your time and energy there and not divide it.

It was an honour to meet you last year at Steemfest and I want to thank you for all you have done for the platform.
I wish you all the best in your future and with whatever project you are working on.

Much love
@misslasvegas

All the best for you, too!

Thanks for all your great posts! It was fun while it lasted!

All best on your next chapter Marlene :) #YouCreateYourLife

There's many nice places where one can spend time :-)

Thanks for your encouraging words. The 60 seconds campaign was one of my personal highlights, too!

All the best for you :-)

Thanks for mentioning eSteem app. Kindly join our Discord or Telegram channel for more benefits and offers on eSteem, don't miss our amazing updates.
Follow @esteemapp as well!

The good news is that there are different websites we can post to. Yes, there is Steemit, Busy, Dtube, etc, which stems from Steem.

Alternatives

But there is also some other websites like Steem out there as well. I copy and paste my posts on Steem to places like Weku, Bear Shares, Smoke, Dream Real, and Serey.

I'll be jumping from one beach to the other now, that's like using several applications - but offline :-D

·

Consider me jealous. Offline is the heart of the world lol and some people should probably follow in your footsteps, that is if there are certain offline opportunities awaiting for them, take a leap of faith, dive right in, like a surfer. That reminds me of when I was living in Hawaii. Good times lol. Keep up the good work in your life and everything. Thanks.

Will miss your joie de vivre, Marly
Get well soon.
Go on, celebrate 🎉 life.
All the very best. @surfermarly

Hehe, they're too cute. Thanks for the wishes, @nigelmarkdias!
All the best for your steemy journey! :-)

Hope to see you one day!

·

The world is not as big as we think :-)
See ya Aaron 🤙

Goodbyes are always painful, not always painful though when the right decisions are made. Am trusting your move and wishing best of luck, hopeful your wishes for steem community gets to be a reality soon as that's the only way we'll all remain here.

It actually doesn't hurt to write those lines, I rather go with a big smile on my face.
They say that you gotta quit being at the top, and that's what I did. I don't think I could've come any further here :-)

Wishing you all the best for your own journey!

The same for me always say I will stop writing
But I'm still here

·

Hehe, I had been thinking about leaving for a while now, and this time there is no way to reconsider my decision, since I'm already in the middle of a new project / adventure :-)
All the best for you on planet Steem!

Thank you
Good luck to you =)

It's pretty sad to see you go. You have done a lot a good stuff here that you can be proud of. 60 seconds of Steem was a lot of fun. Steem needs more people like you and not less.

I wish you all the best.

·

Thank you, mate! Yeah #60seconds was indeed a lot of fun :-)
Have a good one!!

Muchas gracias por tus lindas palabras!
Que te vaya todo muy bien :-))

Gracias por todo, especialmente para inspirarme sobre como salir del agua, suerte en la nueva vida y tienes razón vamos rumbo al desastre, si algún día vienes a El Salvador Centroamerica, aquí tienes un conocido.

Fue todo un placer! Que te vaya bien en la vida @galberto y cuidado en el agua :-)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

It was a gift that we met here, Drew! I'm super grateful. And this one here will still be my all-time favorite :-)

Here's what happens when a musician and a surfergirl meet on Steemit and decide to cooperate

Hey, Sweet Marly,

I've obviously been away from Steemit myself for quite a while... Just a period of "no push" to write, no energy. But I'm feeling more like writing again.

In any case, I've missed you, and now miss you even more, discovering you're "gone." I sure wish you the best, and lots of great waves.

Take care, Sweetie! You're a surfer girl that I'll always be quite fond of... <3

😄😇😉

@creatr

P.S. Did you ever finish and publish your cool book? How's your dad? Are you keeping your sinuses clear with silver water?

We surfers have to look out for one another... ;)
