First of all: Ignore this post.
Steemit, a website that basically promises you some kind of vague, eventually financial reward in return for your blogging, wants me to verify my identity by mentioning them here. I'm not making this up. I don't understand how that verifies anything, or why anyone would care, but they are pretty strict with their security stuff so I suppose they know what they're doing.
If you want to check them out, I'm over at: https://steemit.com/@markrhunter ... and granted I do sometimes post things there that I don't on WB, but on the other hand it's stuff I figure WB users wouldn't be interested in, anyway.
So why did I go there? I was invited, and talked myself into trying it. Pretty much the same way I ended up here. One could make the reasonable argument that I should concentrate more on my book writing.
