Well it's looking like a marathon not a sprint, over a week since goodguy24, nicetry001 and their buddies propelled themselves to the top of the Witness list using "borrowed" exchange funds. But we still have 9 of our existing Top Twenty Witnesses keeping a deadlock so at present we are holding strong that the Steem Blockchain will not see any random forks to suit nefarious intentions.
But nobody could anticipate just how deep Steem can dig, we've seen the most Witness voting activity since the start of the chain four years ago, the votes have moved all round and ensured our Steem Blockchain remains decentralised. It's incredible to see so many of our stakeholders motivated and ready to defend their Blockchain. And of course all our top Witnesses have been working tirelessly in talks, meetings, looking for answers and solutions - they deserve all our respect and appreciation for the work that has been put in.
And we can all do our little bit, I bought in a little more Steem to power up and help add to our DPOS Witness voting power
And it's taken me to 36,224 Steem Power, I know it's small on the grand scheme of things but I have put a great deal of time and effort into Steem myself - and I want it to stay as our community.
One thing we can not ignore is that the value of Steem is on the rise again, all this media attention - plus an incredibly active Twitter campaign from so many of our active Steemians, Witnesses and big stake holders has made Steem the most talked about Crypto - and while stock markets crash and other crypto's follow Steem is managing to climb - although that could just be down to the amount being bought to keep the sock puppet Witnesses near the top and allow exchanges that tied up all their liquid Steem provide a few of their customers exchange out their property.
Meanwhile I'm trying my best to get used to moving my front end usage, after three years of using steemit.com it's a hard habit to break so to speak. But given the new owners track record I'm not very happy with the idea of passing any information through Steemit Inc controlled domains. So I'm composing posts on steempeak.com now when on desktop, it's taken a while to get used to but I quite like the split screen with raw post on the left and how it will look when posted on the right. For mobile I'm using esteem app for iOS and that works well, although it needs to be closed in task manager to ensure the latest refresh. I'm also using these to upvote, resteem and comment on posts.
Keep Steeming on, power up if you can and keep voting for your Witnesses. Together we are strong, and as a community together we will prevail.
Right now we have to be more on top of our Witness Voting more then ever, to ensure we keep our decentralised Top Twenty in position. If you do not have the time to keep checking and changing your Witness votes please set me as your Witness Proxy -

The greatest challenge we face on Steem blockchain is getting our posts seen, I have always believed the simplest and best value way of doing this is by commenting on the blog posts of others, the more you engage people and interact with them the greater the chance they will visit your own blog and return the favour. Other then spending all my free time commenting on Steem blockchain posts, I also distribute coffee roasting machines and also espresso coffee machines and roast my own Speciality Coffee Range. being one of the premium coffee suppliers Yorkshire including a wide range of filter coffee sachets. Finally I have a dedicated website to my Artisan small batch roasted coffee featuring roast and post packs and super easy coffee subscriptions
