(JaiChai) Slog Media — “Useless Time?…”

(image by slog media)

Three or four years ago, I began publishing stories on “Publiq.com” — now known as “Slog Media”(https://slog.media/).

Back then, it was among the plethora of new crypto blogging platforms.

Initially, I enjoyed a meteoric rise of platform fame; earning a butt-load of PBQ tokens.

But two years ago, for some unexplained reason, I got de-platformed for “material not appropriate for this media”.

WTF?

Oh well, their loss, I thought. Then I promptly ghosted it.

But yesterday, I was cleaning out an old external hard drive and saw the backups of the articles I published on Slog Media.

Deciding to see if the platform was still online, I logged in.

F*ck me! To this day, my articles are still being read and rewarded.

Looking at my wallet, I saw that over the last two years of not posting anything, I had accrued a huge amount of PBQ tokens.

The only exchange for PBQ token is Ataix that I still have a neglected, active account on.

The trading pairs for PBQ are: PBQ/BTC, PBQ/ETH and PBQ/DOGE.

Guess what?

THEY ALL HAVE NO LIQUIDITY; MEANING PBQ IS UTTERLY WORTHLESS TO ME! (Deep Breath. Heavy Sigh.)

Just to see if publishing on Slog Media has changed, I attempted a post.

Nothing has changed. It’s still a horrible, long and bug-ridden user experience.

Will I try to submit my musings on Slog Media again? I’m thinking, “Unless PBQ gains any value, probably not.”

There was a “Silver Lining” at the end of this otherwise fruitless experience.

I discovered a few tokens I’d forgotten I had in my Ataix exchange wallet (BTC, ETH, DOGE, and XLM).

Promptly withdrawing them, I sold them on Binance, Kucoin and Huobi.

As usual, I squirrelled away 10% for myself — mostly in Stablecoins and corporate bonds. This is a longtime habit I learned from reading “The Richest Man in Babylon” as a youngster.

Then I put a smile on my daughter and girlfriend’s faces with a new smartphone.

Imagine that?

Submitted FYI.

May you and yours be well and loving life today.

In Lak’ech, JaiChai
