My Hive Long-Term Strategy

A few days ago, I wrote a post titled 12K HP Milestone Within Reach. This post pondered what to do after reaching 12K HP. I am still short of the goal. But I have been thinki


12K HP Milestone Within Reach

My Hive Power is about to reach 12,000 HP. I am still 40 HP shy of the mark. I figure I will likely reach the goal in early September. I am thinking about the significance of this milestone. I had plans for what to do once I reached 12K HP.


Journal Entry for 2022-10-16

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
