Paying it Forward--How Fellow Steemians Help Each Other

There are days I only have time to put up a few posts & make a few comments on what others have shared. My main focus is volunteering at the animal shelter & my online groups that are an extension of that, writing animal stories to put up on Kindle & sometime my health has laid me low & I don't feel like doing much of anything.

Even so, one thing I wanted to do while I'm here, is help others. Resteeming, mentioning them in my own posts & any other way I can think of that will draw (good) attention to them. Though I have diverse interests, there are certain tastes I have when it comes to blogs. Almost anything pertaining to animals, for one. Obviously I'm not going to be supporting every blogger on here. Nor should I. It would lose all meaning. One should encourage those they truly believe in. Which is why, if more paid it forward (since everyone has different things they enjoy), then, most, if not, everyone will be spotlighted.

Two on here, who want to make sure others are receiving acknowledgement are, @thedarkhorse & @wolfhart. They're running a, Pay it Forward contest. Creating curation posts which feature other Steemians. I hope that you'll check them out & also let us know about some on here that you think deserve recognition.

Thank you for the nice comments . The credit goes to my friend @thedarkhorse :) Again thank you

You're welcome. That's why I added them as well.

Please join us for Week 2 of the Pay It Forward Curation Contest. Everyone is welcome to join and help feature those they feel should get a little more attention.

Thank you for the mention! It's nice to know that others are appreciating the concept. Really hope that as this grows I find ways to give more to those who are featured in the contest.

I'm new here, so, I haven't gotten to know too many people yet. I recognized right off that helping each other would make a difference.

Well if you decide to join the contest we'd love to have you. It's a great way to find some new people to follow...actually part of the contest is to find someone you haven't previously followed. Idea is to go out and curate some new content too.

As I mentioned in the post, though I have diverse interests, there's only certain types I like to follow. Most of my time online is either spent on my writing or my animal/pet groups. My husband & I want to seriously get into rescue, so, that's an important focus for me. I also stay in contact on FB with those near me that I've already met or will be. A lot of them also involved with animals. That's one kind of blogger I look for.

This is Cody, we took him in when my Grandparents went into the nursing home. Our previous dogs came from the shelter. My kids are really big time animal lovers and they talk about wanting to own a farm when they get older so they can have all sorts of animals....lol.

Thank you for taking him. I volunteer with the kitties at the local shelter & there & in other places, it's common, when someone enters assisted living or passes, that the family doesn't want to take the pet. So they wind up at the shelter. I was there yesterday & there is a new kitty. She's a tuxie manx & is 13. Her person died & no one would take her. One reason I have my rescue/rehome group, to try to keep them out of the shelter. Adult/senior are ones who wait a long time to be adopted.
