We have all heard the expression don't put all your eggs in one basket. Well, I did just that and went all in on Steem. Actually, no I didn't, It just feels that way because recently a lot of my cryptocurrency investement has been in Steem compared to usual. I just bought around 1000 more SP for around $250. Just enough to get safely above 2000 invested. The rest I collected from blood, sweat, tears and bid bots. Diversification is probably rule number three in investing after buy low sell high and do your own research. Rule four is cover yourself (I'm not an advisor). <center> ![TwoThousandSP.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmV8jzw4E49M7xJCMNKELwbGQDLvMhcCA7ADQhQTphHpYq/TwoThousandSP.jpg) </center> ### 2000 SP I made it. The struggle was real, it feel like just last month I crossed over the 4 digit threshold and reached (https://steemit.com/steem/@abitcoinskeptic/over-1-year-a-steem-member-and-1000-sp). Actually, it was only 18 days ago, how time flies. I think I will slow down and invest in some other blockchains instead. My portfolio is starting to be too heavy into social media. #### I'm finally learning the system, well still learning after one year. Steem is changing. Writing decent quality blogs, putting effort into replying to comments, making insightful comments on people I follow or come across, and keeping some SP for curating and upvoting friends is the best way to watch my STEEM grow. No one who has any honest long-term interest should disagree with this. I do like delegating it, and using bid bots, as well. However, I use them responsibly. ### Delegating SP There are projects I've delegated to and regret. Blindly delegating to annoying bid bots is something I don't plan on doing again (hello there @****** can't wait to have my shameful deligation end). I'm talking about delegating to the bots that promise to upvote and re-steem your content with a ton of accounts, but then you find out your bid was closer to or at -100% lost and a few accounts with little SP real followers and reputations of =<25 voted for your account. **Avoid this!** Moving forward, I plan on shifting my delegation to projects that interest me (and reward fairly). I am planning on making sure I have at least 25% free SP to have decent votes for whoever I like. Existing delegations will end soon to make sure I have this much. I'll use a vote seller as back up, though. I may write more on delegating later. However, I think eventually keeping only my profits as undelegated is fair. I did invest 2000 myself after all and want some sort of unlabored ROI. Also, some projects just need and deserve delegations. Maybe I'll try to become more philanthropic, especially with my profits. ### Bid bots As for bidbots, I just keep my bids low. A couple STEEM per blog on the bots that promise me 5% to 15% after curation. Honestly, in small amounts for decent posts, this is fair. It's the people who do max bids with all the bots possible on a picture of their cafeteria lunch that ruin it for all. ### Korean Pizza I celebrated reaching 2000 SP invested. Well more like celebrated Friday with some delicious Pizza. My menu of choice was from a classy place called pizza school. I like Pizza School because it is inexpensive. It's the best of the cheap chains in my most humble opinion. I got the hot chicken pizza. I decided to go all out with cheesy crust. I tend to avoid pizza with salami or other processed pork from the cheap places. Vegetables, or chicken only because it isn't processed, unlike the cheese which is 100% 'natural'. ![Pizza School.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmZsQjsVVM4jsKUHDK5BP2LqbvQd4w186ETV3anq4euFtc/Pizza%20School.jpg) ### Rant I'm not a pizza snob and the only thing I dislike more than watching someone eat pizza with a fork is listening to a pizza snob. They are almost as annoying as the people arguing over what is the real bitcoin. Pizza is great because you have options, don't limit yourself to one class or type . Sure a 40 dollar wood oven baked pizza with high-quality cheese and other ingredients is going to beat a 7 dollar pizza but does it beat 5.8 X 7 dollar pizzas? I'm going to take even more of a risk by continuing this discussion. In Korea, for medium-range I like Papa John's out of all the chains. It's that, Domino's, Pizza Hut or the local brand, Mr. Pizza. I like these places because they deliver. The cheap places are pick up only. I tend to avoid dining in these places since the atmosphere is on par with McDonald's. Obviously, I could do better for both quality and atmosphere if I went to good local places. Sadly, I haven't found one that is close to my current house. They tend to be in the more famous places for tourists and young people in Korea. Or they are fusion Italian restaurants which are on par with the cheap take away places, but with nicer interiors. Other options include frozen pizza. There is one I like, I think it's called Dr. Ottenger. Great when drunk, too lazy to go out and/or it's too late to order, or you want to save money. Or I can make pizza. Doing that is my favorite but it's a lot of work compared to heating up a frozen pizza, going to the shop or even better delivery. The dough is easy, I make my own. If I want frozen dough I'll go to a chain pizza shop or buy an entirely frozen pizza. The rest of it comes down to if you want to make the sauce or not. That can be a lot of work and is better if you scale. I just use a can. I splash out on ingredients as I wish. I use fresh meats if any, so cheese is the most difficult ingredient to find. Again if I want to use cheap shredded cheese, I'll just buy a pizza from one of the cheap places. Maybe I will write about making pizza next time. It's fun to make. Thank you for reading.
