Hive Disappointment

I was looking at my Hive stats. It appears that I have only earned 147.79 Steem/Hive


I Powered Up Another 87 Hive

I powered up another 87 Hive today. My weekly power up should be around $20. I lose some of that with fees from Coinbase and Blocktrades. However, it is still momentum in building my account. It's funny that I was celebrating that I reached


More STEEM Power Down Coming

Fortunately, Dlease has an option for canceling a lease renewal. One prior leaser renewed for three months at a little over 8% interest. It's a great price for him. However, it's much lower than other leases on the market. I think I can do b


I bought some more HP today

I bought more Hive Power today. That's about the only significant thing worth mentioning. In the past, I would buy Hive and convert it to HP. I started poking around on Blocktrades and saw that I can buy HP directly rather than buy Hive and


Waiting for the repair estimate

I had my car towed to the car dealership this morning. Dealerships are wonderfully expensive for repairs compared to other repai


Playing the Hive Calculator Game

While curating and having some adult beverages, I decided I couldn't wait until Wednesday to cash out my latest installment of powered down STEEM to power up HIVE. As it turns out, the STEEM payouts would amount to about $20. I discovered th


Another Hive Power Up

Today, I got my third installment of Hive from cashing out my Steem account. Next week will be my last installment for a while. I have less than a fortnight to go before some of my remaining Steem finishes a lease. When that is done powering


Thinking About Buying More Hive

It has been some since I purchased Steem for my account. Now that we are on Hive, I have not purchased any since the change. There is a lot of good news that is making me consider buying more Hive. First, Hive does not have the ninja


Reaching for 2000 Hive

Lately, I have been transferring Steem into my Hive account as fast as power downs permit. I think perhaps I will reach 2000 HP when I am done. There is a big chunk of Steem that is locked up in leases. These should be available within the n


Today is Pay Day and I Spent All My Money

Today is Pay Day. I find it hilarious that within one day of receiving my paycheck direct deposit, it is gone. Part of it goes towards paying for things I bought in the past. Yes, credit card debt. Some of it goes towards paying upcoming bil


I'm Trying Not To FOMO

All the buzz is about the Bitcoin halving coming up in a few days. There is excitement that Bitcoin is going to continue its journey to the moon. It is difficult to not get caught up in the hype. I can't help feeling a bit of FOMO. It's not


Bitten by Transaction Fees

As I have been powering down my STEEM account, I have been cashing out. Today, I decided to convert my $6 of STEEM straight into Bitcoin. Ouch. All I got deposited was about $3. A good portion of my withdrawal got eaten up by BTC fees. I don
