I may have taken a break from posting, but I haven't stopped using faucets to get more STEEM and grow my SP.
In the week from December 15th, 2019 to December 21st, 2019, I made 15,090 satoshi from faucets (another new satoshi record). The week before, I was a bit disappointed that I had made more than 14k satoshi but the STEEM results were smaller than the other time I had made less satoshi. So, I simulated how much STEEM I'd get from BlockTrades, and the result was around 7.266 STEEM. My STEEM record was 13,560 satoshi converted to 8.079 STEEM, and I thought it wouldn't be worth it to trade my earnings for STEEM at that time. In hopes to get a little more out of my satoshi, I decided to wait until my earnings were worth more STEEM. This is the reason I didn't post weekly about my faucet earnings like usual, and I ended up using this opportunity to take a little break from posting on the STEEM platform, which also served as a holiday break.
Since then, the crypto prices have recovered a bit, with Bitcoin (satoshi) trading for more STEEM. A month later, I finally withdrew my accumulated earnings, which were 53,468 satoshi. Since it was over the Bitcoin withdraw limit, i traded it to STEEM from Bitcoin. According to my simulations, I'd get more STEEM for trading directly from satoshi than if I were to convert the earnings to Dash like I had been doing (the difference was more than 1 STEEM, so it's actually a lot). This amount was traded for 32.831 STEEM (Steemd transaction link).

Actually, only now I realized that CoinPot's minimum Bitcoin withdraw limit is 10,000 satoshi (I was confused and had thought it was 100,000)! And since I've been making around 12k satoshi every week, it might be better to trade satoshi for STEEM directly from now on, instead of converting to Dash.
As January 12th, 2020 marked another month of faucet earnings, I'll make this into the monthly earnings post!

- Total faucet earnings in the month: 53,468 satoshi, traded for 32.831 STEEM.

It's interesting to see that the earnings keep increasing a bit every month. I didn't think this would happen this time, but it did. And I passed the mark of 100 SP powered up only from faucets! Nice way to start the year. To bigger faucet earnings in 2020!
If anyone else is interested in growing SP through faucet earnings and would like to use the faucet websites I'm using, here's a post with more details and tips, and here's a short interview with a few more tips.
