New to Busy?

Sad and painful Saturday.

Saturday - October 12, 2019

source I changed it with help of photogrid.

I went to bed at 7 pm last night and came out at 8:30 am

About 5 hours I slept well the rest of the night I suffered from pain. At 4 am I tried to turn on my right side. Within 2 seconds I started sneezing and my nose ran like...
Back on my damaged back, head turned backwards so I can breathe.

8:30 am
Sport clothes needed to be washed and some trousers plus one of my summer dresses. The holes literally fall into it just like my pyjamas it is over 18 years old.

I washed the dishes, hung the laundry outside (I need a washing line somewhere else in the sun during now till March) there is no sun at the present one.

I hung two blankets outside. I will give them to my daughter for her dog. They are fine. My pup thorn two of her blankets into pieces as she stayed with her during the summer (I stayed in hospital).

My first post is my Diary Day of Thursday, October 10, 2019.
Too late.

I posted it on Weku first, next via SteemCoinpan and edited it with @partiko.

Next post: the announcement of the winner of my contest which is @wendyth16. She shows beautiful photos of her cat.

The downvote issues @olivia08 had are solved. πŸ‘

Next post. The new contest Looking back/Look forward.. Theme October, autumn or perhaps a (local)celebration.

I posted it via SteemCoinpan and also on Weku.

After that I made a new post "contests running" for @team-ccc.

I also made a new post with "What the letters CCC mean". I saved with what the participants of the Monday contest came up with plus added some of the entries.

*1 pm"
The bus-kid made a cornflakes chocolate heart by itself. A bit too much cornflakes, but not bad for a first try.

I wrote a combined entry for a ccc contest @marblely hosts (my favourite shape) with the prompt garlic breath and my review of the IPA beer for #BeerSaturday hosted by @detlev.

A good shape

I was not drunk as I wrote and and not sober as I edited it although it took me long.
Had to search for an ealier beer post and its link. Posted it with @actifit with my other account.

Filled out the app eetmeter. I had my tax of calories and am over my tax if it comes to carbohydrates which is 7 a day. πŸ€” I will not eat anything more today.

First day we use the gas stove to heat up the place a bit (read: where we sit).

I payed the prizes to the winner/participants of my contest

A gift for @gertu who had a hard week. She is shocked because her vote is even at 100% worth zero. I checked my other profile and noticed the same.

My other profile I started to use for upvotes of palnet content. It was said 25 SP is enough. I have more, also delegated. Now my vote with that account is useless too. Is it because the VP is not 100%?
Is there anyone who can explain this to me?

@fitinfun @abh12345 I think you have more knowledge as me.

  • How much SP is needed to give a 100% upvote some value?
  • Why/when was/is the value of an upvote changed?

Are Steemians less willing to vote on content written in English?

A friend (let's say acquaintance of long ago) contacted me how I am doing. People mainly do if they need something.

At least the drunk ex is happy I wrote I forgave him. Will this stop his drunk, bad poetry about god and the devil addressed to me every hour of the night? By now we are 16 years later.

5 pm
Entered two contests (macro and landscape) of @derangedcontests. I will not win them anyway and did not write a post about them first. There is no need to be the first to enter since the prize is an upvote which you can only receive at the end of the contests. πŸ€”

I posted it with my other account @wakeupkitty.pal

@β€’Β°β€’ Kharmaβ™₯Scribb... gave me a great, long answer. A Steemian that took time to explain about bid bots and @booster.πŸ‘πŸ»

I use my photos for more as just one contest. They also show up in my diary.

I powered down for the first time. The payouts for the contests has to come from somewhere.
I will sponsor @chrismadc2016 his contest too with 3 SBI. Make sure to join it. It is something @gertu could join too. She is a doctor by the way and great in explaining and promoting.

5:40 pm

  • Do you like bed tea (What is bed tea? A special brand?
  • Cryptocurrencies had their best time.
  • Have you tried @playdice.

6:15 pm
Tea time.
The chocolate cornflakes heart is gone.

The youngest took the laundry inside.

@gertu has no earnings. What to do to change that? She joins many contests, is not too lazy to write...
She has only 56 SP. πŸ€”

Delegated SP to her. Anyone around here who can give her some SP?
Anyone else? Although she lives in Venezuela she is a daily writer.

7 pm
To much pain how to kill time?
I switched the heater of. A blanket is fine.

Finished my tea plus bottle with 2 liter water. If the water pours into my throat at a certain spot it irritates and makes me cough.

7:44 pm
Answered some comments.

@bxlphabet told dpoll is a plus. An easy daily post, informative, useful answers, dpoll upvotes, a way to meet great Steemians.

7:50 pm
I took 0.5 mg betamethasone. 😭
No rain coming up so this cannot be the reason for my incredible pain in my face. During the day it only became worse.

10:21 pm
Last post of the day A bright day

The pain decreased a bit I will see if I can catch some sneezeless sleep. I take the warm water bag and a bottle of water with me.

How about giving it a try yourself?
With my lousy, unstable connection it is the only app that still works most of the times. I can post with it and the notifications show an overview with who voted, commented and mentioned you.
You earn points if you use it for posting, commenting and upvoting (partiko points can be traded into Steem).
There are extra points if you watch a commercial of a few seconds.

With Partiko you can edit each post and if you edit it you can add as many tags as you like.
Try it. There is nothing to lose

Do you like photography?

Appics is a great app. Go to and ask to be an 'early bird'.
Please, add text to your pictures. A good post has text no matter if it is a meme, photo, drawing, actifit report, etc. With Appics you can comment and upvote and earn token too.

Posting with apps

If you use @actifit, @partiko or @appics to post you earn too.
@actifit will reward you if you did 5000 steps at least (reward and upvote).
@partiko gives you 30 points for posting.
@appics has it's own token too.
There are more apps that will reward you if you use them.

More tips you can find at @wakeupkitty.pal.

Use them to grow especially if your connection is fine and not as slow as mine.
