Time for a Little Celebration




I was beginning to think I'd never see this day come. Dolphinhood. Especially after I had my account hacked and stolen about a month ago. Talk about a scary time! But thanks to Steemit Inc's Account Recovery tool, and a lot of help from community friends, I was able to get it back.

And here I am today, realizing my goal.


So I want to say a great big thank you to all you fantastic STEEM community peeps who have read, voted, and commented on my blog for the past year and a half. Yes, I almost gave up a time or two. I joined in May 2018, posted a few times and gave up for several months. I came back and gave it another try, and here I am, still posting daily. Without my communities, I would have not have found the joy in this platform.

Thanks to HF21 I believe that the posting environment has improved. There was much debate about the drop for authors' reward to 40% and raising the curators' reward to 60%. But I believe this, along with the very important work being done to downplay the bidbots usage has led to a much more balanced reward system. Here's a great chart that was pulled for me by @abh12345 (again, thank you very much!) that shows my curation reward activity since HF21. I've been making an effort to curate!

Again, I just wanted to celebrate a little bit for making my FIRST steem goal, and to thank everyone who helped me to get here!

Here's wishing the Steem platform and all it's participants continued progress and a great successful future!

Thanks @c0ff33a! Awesome gif and thanks for the COFFEEA token!

Congratulations on Dolphin-hood! 😁 😄 🎉🎉

I wasn't paying much attention to steem a couple of weeks ago --busy with other things-- so I didn't see your post where you had gotten hacked. 😱 Just read it now... and have a sudden urge to change my password, haha. I normally change it every month, but have been slack lately.

So happy that everything worked out!!!!


Thank @kaelci! It was very scary going to my account and being locked out and seeing that Power Down started. Whew! Hope you're doing well, thanks for stopping by!

Go ahead

That's really great. I also believe, what is happening is happening for the best.
Can you give me any info, from where can I see my stat like that?


I read this post and replied on it, asking for my own chart. Isn't that the bomb! It's so nice for @abh12345 to make that offer!


Thanks for letting me know. 😊
