Woke up at 7 am despite setting my internal alarm for 4 am, but it was pretty awesome to pop into MSP waves and hear dear @aggroed host a plethora of voices totally buzz over the news about Tron. I haven't seen that channel be so popping since the last hard fork - We THRIVE off this stuff! I felt all warm and honey inside seeing all the people I've come to adore joke, advise and converse and these new changes. My gut says it's gonna be a golden road ahead.
One thing we do know is that we NEED change, so we have to move with what is coming. Stagnancy is our worst enemy. Sure, we might feel those butterflies of trepidation but that's the Steem rollercoaster for you. This is GOOD news for all of us.
This is a hugely overused phrase for all of us but we keep saying it because it is true, as if we have tattooed it all on our hearts or something. The community is sooo strong here. My advice? Keep steeming good content - more than ever, the world's eyes are on us with this news so complaining, downvote dramas and shit posts (yeah subjective I know) don't serve us. Carry on being freaking awesome. Keep engaging and interacting. Keep moving with the awesomeness of this blockchain.
So many of us have been around for such a long time and it's understandable to feel super worried but I cant see why a hugely successful rich businessman would buy this place just to crash and burn it. Most people I speak to and listen to are feeling positively cautious, as we should all be - this is crypto as you know. We need competition, drama, news, buzz, change, development for things to move.. hopefully up.
We are awesomely new on the social media world and we have all put solid groundwork into this place, I think that really matters. Keep doing that - being part of the foundation of this place - I don't think any huge changes will be made immediately as that wouldn't make good business sense. He is going to WANT it to be successful, as he is invested in it, so that should bode well for all of us, even if we need to be a bit flexible about what we think our future might be.
The funniest thing is that my husband even googled Justin Sun this morning - and he ignores EVERYTHING Steem. His thoughts? Hmmm, honey, maybe you should buy more Steem....
I certainly am not powering down. Funnily enough, I was going to take a month off whilst in India all April but I think I'll be checking in to keep my finger on the pulse and my heart beating along with Steem.
You are MY community - love you all to bits. Xx
