    Witness no More

    I have been part of the @noblewitness team for a while, alongside @SirCork, @Anarcho-andrei and @rhondak. Due to recent events that I won’t go into detail about, I have decided to hang up my witness hat. The politics involved with running a witness can be complex and are becoming increasingly distasteful to me. One has to make associations that, in any other circumstances, one wouldn’t normally make. I want to be me, the best me I can be, without sacrificing my personal values and integrity. There has not been a falling out with my former team members, we remain friends. My number one focus shall return to @thewritersblock, Steemhouse Publishing…

    Final Day in Lanzarote Vlog

    My last vlog from this beautiful island in The Canaries. I speak about my time reconnecting with the family, getting closer to my other half and enjoying my sea adventures snorkeling. Back full time on Steem in a few days, I also talk about steemfest in Poland next month and put out a call to help get @Rhondak there too. I will be speaking at Steemfest about @thewritersblock, Steemhouse Publishing, and Wordrow, our forthcoming creator’s focused front end, and would love for Rhonda to share the stage with me. Apart from my own selfish reasons – I’m not much of a talker – Rhonda is working herself to death at…

    It’s a Small (Steem) World

    Last week when I arrived in Lanzarote for my family vacation, I discovered that sea lover and water sports enthusiast @surfermarly lives here, one of the Canary Islands. I got in touch with her via Discord and we organised a mini Steem meetup at my hotel resort. @surfermarly lives an hour north from here and drove down to see me today to chat and share a drink or two. I have long maintained that the universe has some kind of plan in play. The meetings and coincidences that have occurred during my Steem life continue to amaze me: not only does Marly live on this island, but her home is…

    Muxxy Vlog #2 – Steem’s Greatest Asset

    Preparing to leave Canada, where I attended the #steemcreators conference, I reflect on what I believe to be Steem’s greatest asset: the global village and community of awesome Steemians. It’s not until you meet real people face to face, see their passion and understand the time they have invested into this platform, that you realize quite how precious the community is, and why it should be nurtured. Thanks for watching.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    Source I do my best not to be scared of many things. Sure, a recurring nightmare I have is spiders…flying spiders….not just regular old flying spiders, oh no. Flying spiders that spit fire. Yes, I kinda doubt that they will ever become a reality. Unless some mad scientist genetically engineers some, I don’t know. But, I digress… I mean, regular eight-legged hairy bastard creatures with multiple sets of eyes and pointy teeth are bad enough, but flying fire-breathing ones? Just, nope. Although I really do loathe the little buggers, I still have to play the hero and rescue my little girl from their evil stares, sat up in the corner…
