Cool to have this steem news back. :)

Have a !BEER

Hey @pennsif, here is a little bit of BEER from @steevc for you. Enjoy it!

Learn how to earn FREE BEER each day by staking.

BTW Steemians may want to vote in this Twitter poll by @cryptofinally

Is the poll ongoing or has it got a closing date?

Looks like it finished. Steem did not do great. At least it was in the shortlist.

That's a shame. Drop me a link if you spot any similar polls and I will add them in the news.

Thanks again @pennsif Here is the link to the latest SPUD X post. Take care.

Thanks for the link. Have updated the Diary Dates now.
