Journal Entry for 2022-10-16

I am trying something different for today's blog post. Blog posts are typically a writing project, which is different from a journal entry. Journal entries are about anything and everything that happened throughout the day. Blog posts are ab

Hive or Bitcoin?

When Hive Power-Up Day rolls around, it's never an easy choice. Do I buy Hive? Do I buy Bitcoin? Today, Hive has won the play. Here is why. BTC Goal Met I have purchased enough BTC to know things will be alright in the future

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

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
