First moves on a new portfolio: HODL, FODL, SODL

10 May 2021 1 minute read 5 comments Spitkitten

I made some moves. After carefully considering all the advice I read and received, checking and talking myself down from FOMO and the temptation of compulsive gambling, refreshing my trading screen, and pacing, I did some stuff. And true to my TMI fo...

Terrible (mostly) advice: a brief selection

6 May 2021 1 minute read 3 comments Spitkitten

So, as I posted yesterday, I have some research to do.  Apparently, I will need better boots. "Buy low. Sell high." "Get out now because this is a bubble." "DOGE. DOGEDOGEdogedogedoge. Doooooooooooogggggeeee." "Hello, beautiful. I am Prince of Profe...

OMFG. Has it really been this long since I posted? (Rhetorical question, yes. Yes, it has.) Hi! How are you all? Tell me everything. So. To explain my absence (I know you noticed, right? RIGHT?)... Uh. I got stuck.  No. Really.  I made it kinda as...

My apologies for radio silence, if anyone's still out there. It's been for good, not sad. October is a fave month for me: my anniversary, colder weather, HALLOfreakingWEEN*, trees turning, and, for some reason I can't explain, October feels like the...

For the love of cheese, don't keep your crypto in exchanges. Just don't. Don't do it. This is a note to self as much as a PSA*. * Even as I encouraged myself -- and you -- to transfer the scraps from faucets into exchange wallets, don't keep anythin...

Smart, funny @Sugarfix issued a challenge a few days back, to see how ridiculous a product review one can get away with getting posted, for real and true. I'm a sucker, and all out of post ideas rn (hey! My state is one of the ones on FIRE, and smoke...

Finding help when you are past needing

This is wildly off-topic for this blog, but I think it's important. So, bear with me for a huggy, touchy-feely PSA. For another project, which is getting shuttered, I wrote a guide to finding a therapist. Working in mental health, I saw a gap; there'...

14 Sep 2020 3 minute read 10 comments Spitkitten

Scene opens, my last post. In the comments section No love for Cardano? @cryptoscrimper  asked. I don't know it, yet, I said. Maybe I should look it up, for homework, I said. End scene I was trying to make a joke. But then my weirdo Aspie crap kicke...
