Setting out for a new beginning: relinquishing my tribesteemup vote

11개월 전

Over the last weeks I have been feeling a great longing for returning to most organic an experience on the platform, which increasingly fueled and molded my consideration of having autovotes I am receiving for my writings removed to the greatest extend possible.

Having received the high tribesteemup vote with the entire auto-curation trail, comprised of many quality content creators, attached to it for about 20 months now, has been an immense credit of trust in me responsibly creating valuable and dedicated content without abusing the system. A gift which I have been consciously and consistenly feeling sincere gratitude toward and at the same time a gift that I tried to reciprocate and do justice to the best I could.

Special thanks and heartfelt gratitude to @kennyskitchen for having accepted me after reviewing my blog page back when I wanted to join. Without you I wouldn't have been able to build my place on Steemit in such a frictionless way.

In sync with the closing of the year I feel like it is the right time to complete this cycle.

I have been receiving more than I could have ever asked for, and as I have been winding down my posting frequency since early September to move on with a more equilibrated mindset it also just feels unnecessary to leave the big daily upvote inclusive of the curation trail unused. It's a wasted luxury in my opinion.

In case somebody thinks I am making this step now driven by ulterior motives such as having lost faith in Steem and that giving up this vote would therefore not matter anyway, I have to disappoint you.

My faith in Steem is unwavering as usual. I just feel that for me it's time to return back to square one in terms of organic user experience and set out for a new beginning.

As far as potential candidates for membership is concerned I think @fenngen or @julianhorack would be very good suits, just to make some suggestions.

@fenngen appears to be an ambitious and interactive content creator whose writings fit perfectly with the tribe's guidelines. In one of his recent posts he also thoroughly laid out his Steem-exclusive content plans for the new year, which sounds promising and dedicated.

@julianhorack also seems to be a well-fitting member in terms of interactivity as well as content. Since he appears to have been engaging with tribe members for a long time while also expressing his interest to join on multiple occasions, it might be the right time to reciprocate his wish.

Nonetheless, as said, these are just suggestions. I have no preferences in terms of what will be done with my vote. That's up to @kennyskitchen since he's the founder of tribesteemup.

As to my humble self, I have been meaning to learn "standing on my own feet" with my Steem Power for several months now. Therefore I am currently lying focus on other authors' works by curating them.

It's a natural token of acknowledgment when I truly like the content, whether it's long-winded articles, photographies or art. If the work strikes a deep chord within me I will leave thorough comments as well. I will still post my own articles, but more rarely when kissed by the muse of inspiration.

In the deceleration of my pace on the platform, increasingly returning to an organic user experience feels very natural and perfectly timed, especially because entertaining the very idea to me has been feeling boding well for some weeks now. It just needed to come to full maturity, which is now.

I assume it is incumbent upon @kennyskitchen or @trucklife-family to remove me from the autovoting list inclusive of the tribesteemup vote as well as the curation trail, which I'd be very grateful for if you could arrange some time to do that.

Should there be anyone else having me on their autovoting list I would appreciate it if you could follow suit.

Glad to hear that you're setting new challenges & intentions for yourself. I've removed you from the auto-voter, but feel free to reach out if you want to be put back on, and don't worry about taking up a spot or anything like that.

Thanks for sharing yourself with all of us, and keep doing great work!


Thank you for accommodating my request and for your kindhearted offer. You are a very cordial person and I wish you nothing but the best. :)

thanks for being in the tribe Alex, I will notify Kenny so that he can remove you. I look forward to reading your content as always xxx


Thanks for the kind words and thanks for processing my favor. Feel free to do whatever you want with my tribe vote, I have no preferences in this regard.

Ideally all content should be manually curated, but people do not always have the time it takes to get to everyone that deserves something. Welcome back to the manual curation world. :)


You are right. But just for clarification, I never automated my own vote. I have always been curating manually myself. In this post I am specifically referring to doing away with the receival of auto-votes ( as much as possible).

Wow, I'm very humbled by your proposition. Thank you so much for the value you give to my work through these words. Much love 🙏💜
