Seven Hive PUDs and a PUM

That sounds like the plot of a sci-fi movie about a bunch of hapless robot bachelors who find a strange baby droid and raise it poorly. Hijinks ensue.

But let's digress together, shall we, and celebrate yet another #Hive Power-Up Day-- and the beginning of only the third #HivePUM ever, if I'm not mistaken.

It's really my first Power-Up Month and my seventh #HivePUD, all told... hence the title I chose for this post. And after a few months away (which I TALKED ABOUT recently in a bit more detail) I'm excited to start earning my @hivebuzz badges again.

A Humble Hivian, Re-engaged!

And it feels good... just to participate and find some kind of useful groove again. This is my third day in a row, each with a post and some thoughtful curation. A great start.

Admittedly, I still have things I need to catch up on... but I think that's always going to be the case, to a certain extent. I've learned about Power-Up Month, the 10% HBD savings rate and a few of the new income tokens that are quickly becoming popular.

Those are some good baby steps, and now I just have to keep putting them together in a way that makes sense. HivePUM, for instance... I'm not sure if I will commit to creating an HP-only post every day or do a mix of staking and posting. Probably the latter.

I also have my merch shop to reintroduce very shortly, so there's no shortage of things to keep me interested. Stay tuned for more details as I get more settled.

What about you? Do you make the effort to get your participation badges? If so, what's your strategy for Power-Up Month? It seems like there aren't too many users actually making it through the whole month and getting the PUM badge yet. Hopefully it catches on.

Thanks so much for reading! Let me know in the comments what you're up to, and what keeps you excited about Hive these days. Happy Hive Power-Up Day (and Month)! :)
