Two Months & Counting...

Approximately three weeks ago, I posted an update about my Steem journey. I posted it via CTPtalk. In case you haven't read it, here's a little backgrounder. I'm an affiliate marketer of the ClickTrackProfit program. In the course of my re-training, I was led to the Steem blockchain. Since I enjoy blogging, I gave it a shot.

You can read more about my previous post, 41 Days & Counting....

I also struggled like everyone else who was new to Steem. It has now been two months. I'm still far from my goal of at least 500SP, but I'm quite happy that I have reached two of the goals that I have set for myself for the month of September.

The two goals were:

3K CTP tokens (staked)
50 SP

Since a new month has begun, I have an unwritten set of new goals. (It's actually written on my notepad, but I'd like to share it only when I've actually achieved it or when I'm close to hitting my target.)

I'm honored to have received a few citations, including one from @curie for one of my #freewrite exercises. You can read it here. Participation in these writing activities has really helped me a lot in growing my SP. I do plan on carrying on and improving my writing skills further, so that I could continue to contribute quality content here.

As for CTP, here's my latest stat from my dashboard within the program.

I'm still a CTP Apprentice on Level 10. I will work on improving my stats further as well. I just need to seek balance in all that I do.

It's also worthy to mention that I have joined Steem Terminal on Discord, and I have signed up for their October Redfish Rally. More info here. One of my objectives is to keep on growing my Steem account.

To make my journey more meaningful, I've also started contributing to #PayItForward Weekly Curation Contest. I'd like to help others grow with me on Steem too. If you're interested, you can check it out at Pay It Forward Contests. So please create original, quality content as I would like to include you in my recommendations.

If my early stats on Steem were rather dismal (they're not the best yet at this time), I'm quite glad the figures have improved. It's a good thing that I don't give up quite easily, or I would have quit earlier on.

At this point, I still have a long way to go. There are lots more lessons that need to be learned. I'll take things in stride, and just do my best each and every day. I hope to share more updates in the near future. Thank you for visiting my post. ^_^
