Adopt Me Week 1- The Freewrite House

Adopt Me the Freewrite House Way

@blacklux had a fabulous idea - to adopt a redfish (or two) every week.

#adoptme is the hashtag to follow to support the newcomers and/or older little fish on this platform.

A redfish/plancton has less than 500 SP and no significant amount of Steem or SBD just sitting in the wallet.

The Freewrite House decided to join the fun!! Of course, being the Freewrite House, we are going to pick Freewriters for this process.

So what's this all about?

Once a week we will pick 1 steemian (plankton/redfish) and we are going to adopt them. If we don't have a lot of other voting commitments that week, we might choose two.

  • We will upvote at 50%, up to 2 posts per day the adopted steemian wrote.
  • We will resteem 1 of their post per day for 7 days.
  • If - and only if!! the payout of this post is high enough, we will sponsor the selected Steemian(s) into Steem Basic Income. That would give them an upvote for life.

Hopefully, many of you will support the redfish of the week as well and the steemian will grow in this platform.

@ blackly put out the call:

"I would like to see people doing the same, if we all adopt someone we can all grow together!"

And we listened.

How Do You Get Picked?

Every week, we will make a post to pick 1 or 2 new steemians. In the comments, write "ADOPT ME!"
That is all.

As long as this applies:

  • You MUST be a PLANKTON/REDFISH
  • You Must be a FREEWRITER
  • You ONLY POST ORIGINAL CONTENT
  • You DON'T SPAM
  • IF YOU USE INTERNET PICS YOU HAVE TO SOURCE THEM CORRECTLY

Easy, right? So if you're a plankton, post original content and don't fill Steemit with spam - then you can be adopted!

Also: You can nominate people to be adopted, just write their name in the comments. If you do, please check and make sure that all the conditions apply to your nominee.

We will:

  • Check the profiles of all the people who apply
  • announce the name of the adopted Redfish(s) in a post.
  • The steemian(s) will get 7 days of upvotes and resteems!
  • We will use the hashtag #adoptme for all posts associated with this initiative.

The Uncle/Auntie Idea

To make this more impactful, @blacklux came up with the auntie and uncle idea.

If you want to help but all your upvotes are already committed? No worries, become an uncle/auntie to the adopted steemians!

How is that done?

Easy! Just resteem our adopted steemian(s) post for a week! That way you will help them to get more exposure here in this platform.

Tell us if you want to be and auntie/uncle and if you do the resteems, your name will be on the next post!!

Let's do this!

Go and write Adopt Me! In the comments below.

If any other person wants to join me in this adoption madness feel free to use the #adoptme hashtag and tag me in your post! Also, resteem this, so all your friends can apply for adoption!

Tell a small fish about this!!!

Welcome to the #adoptme movement!! Let's help all the people we can! 😊

·

Great idea @blacklux thank you 🙏

·

You have the best ideas!!!

·
·

Once you pick the lucky plankton tag me so I can help too. I will give your adopted steemian 1 upvote at 25% a day for 7 days to help him/her grow. 😀

·
·
·

Thank you so much!!! Did you wait a full week the first time and announce the chosen one in your new post? Or did you pick two right away?

·
·
·
·

Well, I open the application process on Fridays and announce the adopted steemians on Mondays. So people have 3 days to apply. You can take the time you think is best for you to choose the lucky steemian. ☺

Thank you for the info. I probably try to keep it to one post a week - but I have to think about the logistics. I like the Friday idea. The weekend is kind of dead on here and that might be an incentive for people to come and visit the profile...

You can do 2 posts. One for applying and one announcing the adopted plankton. You can put one of the post to be paid fully in sp that way you can grow more your voting power and help more people with your votes. That's what I do 😀

I think that is a great idea - especially since I have been giving all the liquid earnings away in prizes. That way, the vote will grow :)

Excelente iniciativa!!!

I would love to join but I feel like I wouldn't make the best use of it since I don't make that much content every day. But I hope you're able to find a Steemian that fits your quota :)

·

Maybe that inspires you to post more :) We are going to this on an ongoing basis - you might find later that you want to join in...

This is a great idea which I'd be delighted to support it with a couple of votes a day.

·

Thank you so much!!

Okidok, as soon as Mr. Wonder posts I'll be on it!

Adopt Me Please!

·

Are you going to post twice a day? Doesn't have to be a freewrite....

·
·

I might be able to post twice a day for a week. Or maybe I can just be a pervy uncle! 🎃

@stinawog is still plankton! Adopt her!

·

Is she going to post twice a day?

·
·

Just once a day, I think. I didn't realize you meant that as a requirement.

I am not sure to make it a requirement. I have to think about that. I suppose we could do one 100% upvote or one 50% and 2 if there are two posts...

Great post like it..pls upvote my posts and follow back

Your comment looks a lot like spam and people on this platform do not like this. Actually, some of the bigger accounts might downvote you to a point where you are not visible anymore. Here are three good articles which will help you to be successful on this platform.

Sorry ..

·
·

No worries. Many start here and don't know how this platform works or have been getting bad advise. When you leave a comment, it is best to say something about the post - not just that it is a good post.
And you only ask for an upvote or a visit to your post if you know the person and you have a specific reason to let that person know about your post. Once you build a friendship, people want to visit your profile.
Please feel free to join the Freewriters and write with the daily prompt you can find @mariannewest.
The prompt is an example where you are asked to leave a link to your post so people can come and read and upvote :) Give it a try.

Thnk u so much to suggest me ..thnk u

Magnifica idea... gracias @blacklux Yo nomino a @cefralelo para que la adopten a ella...

·

Un honor con gran compromiso!!! Gracias amigo @latino.romano , esta es una excelente iniciativa @blacklux

·
·

Buena suerte! 😊

Hello, yours is an excellent initiative, I write mainly in Spanish although infrequently, but I am willing to do it daily, all my content is original you can check it on my blog, could you adopt me?.

·

Writing in Spanish is not a problem but if you only post once in a while, you wouldn't benefit much. Are you participating in the Spanish Freewrite run by @latino.romano? check it out and join in - and keep applying...

·
·

Thank you very much, I will follow your recommendation.

It doesn't matter if my post is the same but in different lenguage? I post every day

·

The language doesn't matter so much. But you need to participate in the freewrite. You find the English prompt @mariannewest and the Spanish prompt @latino.romano. Either one is fine. If you write in a different language, let us know what it is so we can use google translate...
