HivePUD Feb-2022, plus monthly account stats

My submission for #HivePUD for 1-Feb-2022, and my latest monthly stats showing my account progress, with graphs from #PeakD.

HivePUD Feb-2022, plus monthly account stats

Powering up at least $ʰⁱᵛᵉ10.00 as HP.

Today is the 1st February 2022, and this is my first ever HIVE Power Up Day ( #HivePUD ) submission. The concept is simple. On the first day of every month, we power up at least $ʰⁱᵛᵉ10.00 liquid Hive into Hive Power (HP). This will increase our own voting power on the HIVE blockchain, meaning that our upvotes are worth more in the future. This is my first HivePUD submission, because I am only quite new to the HIVE social blockchain, having only been here for less than one month. However, I was on the legacy social blockchain some three years ago, so I totally get the concept of powering up my $ʰⁱᵛᵉ into HP to increase my stake, making my upvotes worth more.

screenshot of staking my $ʰⁱᵛᵉ10.00
I have been able to stake $ʰⁱᵛᵉ15.321 of liquid Hive from last month, as you can see from the screenshot here. The transaction on the blockchain is 1328bc1d. I may not be able to achieve such a level in future months, as I am a sickness beneficiary, living on a fixed income with not a lot of room to spare for investing in crypto. Much of my liquid $ʰⁱᵛᵉ last month has come from transferring over my assets from the legacy social blockchain. I must thank @thekittygirl, @stayten, and @pravesh0 for their help in The Terminal Discord server recently, guiding me on how to achieve my first real crypto trade, and converting some of my crypto from the legacy social blockchain over to the HIVE blockchain as liquid $ʰⁱᵛᵉ. Below you will find a list of other sources of my liquid $ʰⁱᵛᵉ from the preceeding month, which I have staked for #HivePUD today.

Acknowledging where this $ʰⁱᵛᵉ came from.

  1. @pravesh0 – I received a very generous gift of $ʰⁱᵛᵉ2.00 from Pravesh last month, to get me over the $ʰⁱᵛᵉ10.00 liquid Hive limit, when it looked like I wouldn't be able to reach the #HivePUD goal today. Thanks so much for this, Pravesh, you're a champion!
  2. Creation & Curation rewards – I have had some great responses to my blog posts and comments here on HIVE last month. Particularly my #introduceyourself post, which gained a lot of very nice upvotes from people here. Thank you so much to everyone who upvoted my posts and comments last month, it has made a huge difference to my liquid $ʰⁱᵛᵉ wallet, which has now been powered up.
  3. Reblogs – I would also like to acknowledge those who have reblogged my posts last month. This is very helpful, as it widens my audience to include theirs, which very often can subsequently contribute to my creation rewards. Last month my rebloggers were: @hernleon74, @cheelbire, @forykw, @repayme4568, @alvonzo, @wesphilbin, @maulidar, @cribbio, @marcocasario. Thank you to all of you! I hope to repay the favour in the future.
  4. Delegations – All of that posting and commenting which I did last month would not have been possible so early in my existence here on the HIVE social blockchain, were it not for a couple of very generous delegations I received early on. I'd like to mention especially @thekittygirl and The Terminal's @rc-assist account. Without them, along with the initial delegation I received from @ecency when I created my account, I would not have been able to do much creation or curation at all here.

My monthly account stats.

Review of previous month's position.

As I have only just started here on the HIVE social blockchain this month, I really don't have anything to compare my growth against from the previous month. Starting next month I will be giving a brief overview of where I was previously, as a quick reminder, before I post the account statistics which you will see below. This time, however, there is nothing really to compare against.

However, I did post the image below in The Terminal Discord server earlier in the month, and it gives an interesting comparison of my progress on the legacy social blockchain, compared to this time around.

My monthly account stats from PeakD.

(html comment removed: Screenshots from PeakD, with brief analysis text )

Account Growth graph from PeakD.
Account Growth – At the far right of this graph, you can definitely see the extra staking that I did today. Don't ask me why there are two 1-Feb dates showing in this graph though. That's just the way PeakD reported it.

Author Rewards graph from PeakD.
Author Rewards – The main distinguishing feature here is my #introduceyourself post, which had a lot of very nice upvotes on it. Thanks again to everyone who voted on my posts last month.

Curation Rewards graph from PeakD.
Curation Rewards – I am pretty sure that the distinctive feature in this graph comes from a very generous upvote on a comment that I made on one of @clove71's posts recently. Thanks for that Chris, you've always been so kind and generous to me! Most of my best Splinterlands card collection came from Chris Love, either as gifts or as competition prizes.

Incoming Votes graph from PeakD.
Incoming Votes – This graph isn't as useful as it could be, being that the @peakd Dashboard only shows the number of votes here, and doesn't account for the vote weight of each. As you can see, I have been upvoted a lot last month by an account called @gangstalking, but their vote weight is tiny because they have negative reputation and have been blacklisted by HiveWatchers. However, ignoring that, my next largest number of upvotes came from @makerhacks, who shares my interest in Raspberry Pi single board computers. Nice to meet you, @makerhacks, and thanks for all the upvotes last month. Thanks also to everyone who upvoted me last month. I recognise a lot of the names in this graph, mostly from The Terminal Discord server.

Outgoing Votes graph from PeakD.
Outgoing Votes – Here we see who I have been interacting with on-chain the most. The Silver Bloggers community members feature heavily in this graph, along with many from The Terminal. I also like to upvote my fellow countrymen (and women) from New Zealand whom I meet here. One such is @forykw, who I used to know back when I was last on the social blockchain, as well.

Posts/Replies graph from PeakD.
Posts/Replies – I have really had some amazing replies to my posts last month, particularly my #introduceyourself post. I'd like to take this opportunity to mention @britandjosie of @heyhaveyamet, who featured my #introduceyourself post in one of their HHYM posts, which may well have contributed significantly to these replies that I subsequently received. Thanks for that, @britandjosie.

Comments graph from PeakD.
Comments – I'm not too sure what this graph from the PeakD Dashboard shows. I think it is my own outgoing comment stats for last month. If so, I need to pick up my game! From what I am seeing, it looks like I started off strong, but have waned a bit since then. I will try to do better this month.

Position statement.

I am still in the process of powering down the remaining 44.167SP from my old STEEM account, and converting the funds from there to the HIVE blockchain, which I believe will take another two more weeks to complete. I am also powering-down the 86.795HP from the matching @trisquelwhare account on the HIVE blockchain, and moving those funds to my @frittro account, which will take 13 weeks in total to complete. I have made a start on my main blog post series about setting up my #homelab using a #raspberrypi and #yunohost, but I need to really pull-finger on this, as I am already way behind on my planned schedule for the #installfest. I will try to get myself back on track with my installfest during February. I would also like to acknowledge the owner of the @hipnose003 account, which is running my #splinterlands card collection in their bot, earning me a passive income of Dark Energy Crystals (DEC).

Very nice post with lots of details and data, great gesture from @pravesh0 very cool man 😎

I guess February being a short month received some extra love from Peakd and got an extra day 😜

Best of luck in your Steam transition and welcome to Hive 😄😆 seems like you're pretty new here so I give you my welcome!

I'll see you around 😎

Yes, that was a lovely gift from Pravesh. I'm also the kind of person who likes to "pay it forward", as he did, and I'll be sure to help someone else in need in the future, in Pravesh's honour.

"seems like you're pretty new here so I give you my welcome!"

You're right, I am very new on HIVE itself, but some OG people here still remember me from my days on the legacy social blockchain, so that's nice. Will definitely see you around, too! 👋

OMG! Never seen a better HivePUD post before. The hardwork you have been doing on this post is clearly seen here. So many matrices and stats. As a reader, we can't ask for more.

Thank you for the mention, You are a champion too! ❤️


p.s. you just made me realize that how bad my current draft is for HPUD post. 😅

Thanks again Pravesh, and I'm sure your HivePUD post will be awesome too. I look forward to reading everyone's HivePUD posts this month. Thanks for the LUV and PIZZA, by the way. This month, in between making my serious blog posts about my #homelab, I really must learn more about those tokens.

@pravesh0(1/1) gave you LUV. H-E tools | connect | <><

I was very happy to help, and it's amazing what you have accomplished since your return! Bravo! 😃

Thanks so much KittyGirl, that means a lot to me. I aspire to greatness on this social blockchain, and you have been a real inspiration to me towards that goal.

Excellent achievement. Well done!

Thanks for that @fionasfavourites, you and the other Silver Bloggers have been a great source of inspiration for me as I grow my account here on HIVE, and learn more about the community engagement aspects of being on the social blockchain.

If you are staking and increasing your Hive power then you are on the right track.

I'll be dropping my account stats as well.

Growth is exciting!

Yes, growth is exciting. I hope I can continue to grow my account once I have completed this consolidation process. Thanks for the comment!

Congratulations on your first powering up @frittro. 🎊

Your post is phenomenal! The styling, the formatting, and everything esle is just superb!

Welcome back to Hive, man! Hopefully this is the start of becoming a whale! 🐋 (one day .. maybe 😁)


Yay, thanks for that Yaziris! You have been so inspirational, and very helpful, as I have been re-learning about the social blockchain.

Awesome and very well done! Congratulations on your first HPUD! And I love the cool presentation :)

Thanks ifarmgirl. You rock! Your fiction writing is always a welcome distraction to my days.

You're welcome and thank you too :) Cheers to more success in Hive and to your project too

Awesome, this is just great. Congratulations on this great accomplishment. Your post is so insightful and beautiful. Great job the hard work is showing. Much love to you Fritto Sir🤗💗

Thanks for visiting my post, @queenstarr, and for your lovely comment. Much love to you too.

WOW excellent post. I didn't know some things could be visualized. I have to look to see where I can see that kind of information about my account. Very nicely detailed information. Congrats 🎉

Thanks, I was an avid PeakD user back when it was first created, three years ago. The graphs that they generate are really cool!

Tengo que investigar al respecto 😀

Thanks for using one of the silverbloggers graphics on your posts.

These are made for everyone to use freely and do not need any mentioning.

For the sake of having less notifications on my hive profil i ask you kindly to stop referring to mondoshawan. Thanks a lot for your understanding.

Oh derpy derp derp! I'm so sorry. I thought that enclosing it in <code>..</code> tags had neutered it, so that it doesn't ping you any more. There is another one on its way as well, that I have just posted, I'm sorry.

I understand your desire to not be pinged, however, I still feel the need to acknowledge you as the creator of the image, if only I could do it without pinging you. On HIVE, if I still have to cite sources that are from Pixabay and other such CC0 and PD licensed image sites, then I should definitely cite you as a source of images too.

If i want/need to source, i use links and send folks to the original creator. So if you want to cite me, please use this possibility...


...that way it will not ping anyone! Thank you!

Okay, I will do that in future. Sorry about this hassle.

I that first PUD that starts a chain every first of the month and with the power down from the old accounts next month is a done deal I think. Congrats on your first hope you win a prize in the pud total, or in the terminal. Thanks for the mention of our baby the termknal and Heyhaveyamet.

Don’t forget to put it in the TT pud room

Thanks Brittandjosie, I really appreciate all that you and the other admins in The Terminal do for us redfish, teaching us how to succeed on this social blockchain, and answering our dumb questions, haha.

"...and with the power down from the old accounts next month is a done deal I think"

I agree. With the power-downs, I have a fairly good chance over the next few months, of meeting the #HivePUD requirements. But I can't do it alone. I will still need a lot of support and upvotes to make it over the line each time. I look forward to the challenge!

A question NOT asked is the dumb one ☝️

Wow, I didn't even expect to get a reply from you, so thanks for taking the time to reply.

"What is the concern with small upvotes?"

Simply put, the tiny upvotes that you give, of 0.01%, end up being swept away as "dust" at payout time. All that they achieve is getting you some attention on the blockchain. I guess, as the saying goes, all publicity is good publicity. If you're content with gaining notoriety on this social blockchain, instead of being a productive, contributing member of this community, then have at it. You are only wasting your own time, not mine.
