Sometimes when I want to sit and contemplate things, I walk down to the beach, and sit on the sand watching the waves, the walkers, the surfers, and the dogs playing.

It really helps put things in perspective. Lately on Steemit I’ve been feeling like we are pushing shit up hill. Pushing shit up hill is one thing, but coming to the conclusion that it is not really our hill, and maybe isn’t even really a hill at all, gets a bit much. The beach was a lot busier than Steemit actually!

Every man and his dog was there…

So lately I’ve been doing my best to let go of my 2 1/2 year Steemit habit/obsession/addiction. I’ll still check in from time to time, and there is some content that I can best access from Steemit, but although I will keep sharing some of my blog posts to Steemit from WordPress, for the most part I probably won’t be posting or commenting.

At some point I’ll probably do a blog post outlining some of my paranoid theories about what is really going on deep within Steemit. But I will only do that on my WordPress blog and won’t share that on Steemit because I don’t want to start WW3. These days most of friends seemed to have moved on, the content has really gone downhill (yes, including mine, sorry) and I don’t think we are ever going to earn any real payouts again. We need to chill out more.

Along with learning all sorts of things and seeing all sorts of cool stuff, I’ve also met some amazing people. Some of whom I’m in contact with outside of Steemit, but many I’m not. If you feel so inclined, feel free to get in touch by email or discord. It would be great to hear from you. So long and thanks for all the good times!

My website and blog is here: , on discord I am frot, and my email is  (I realise I’m asking for spam posting that, but I already get the odd bit of spam so what the hell, live dangerously)
