GIF by @issymarie, go follow her for great content!

Last year about this same date, we launched the second series of The @blocktrades December contests and they were a success with more than 500 Steemians joining.

Last contest we had over 100 hundred entries and it was amazing to see so many people joining, thanks guys!

Contest season is still on Steemians, and this is the second contest we are hosting.

This contest was supposed to be launched a few days ago, but to be completely honest, the dates and the upcoming holidays as well as the almost end of the year, made me decide to push it a few days. But now we are on.

My 2019 weekend Showcase: The Best of the year

This contest is very easy, and this is a chance for everyone to win: There will be no picked winners. Instead, everyone who joins this contest will be a winner, as long as you follow all the steps to join :)

The point of this contest, or perhaps it should be considered a challenge, is to highlight your very best posts of the year, preferably underrated - meaning that the rewards received by those posts are way lower than what the author (that means you) feels they deserved back when they published.

Follow the next steps to join the LAST 2019 WEEKEND SHOWCASE

1.- Scroll and navigate your blog. All the posts you made in 2019. Pick the best 3 posts you made this year, preferably underrated (low payout).
2.- Make an original post talking about what each post talks about, like a brief review of it, and include a link and a picture to the post. Do the same for each of the three posts.

The idea is to make a short compilation - with some information about each post - of your best work of the year.

3.-Share that post on Twitter following the #POSH rules, include a brief description of what the post is about on the Tweet. You can check the requirements here.
4.- This is the most important part of the challenge: Tag 3 people on Twitter and invite them to read your post and make them curious about #Steem (you can either do this on a new tweet as a reply to your original POSH tweet or you can just use a new single tweet including a link to your POSH tweet). If your friends are interested about Steem, tell them to go to or simply open an account and learn more about our community!

To power this contest, OCDB will be giving free accounts over the next few days to people who want to join Steem, just message me on Discord!

So, starting right now, you can think about your top three posts of the year so you can make a post this weekend! The posting window is from Friday 27th at 00:01 until Sunday 29th at 23:59, no matter the TIME ZONE, just use your own weekend time zone to be on schedule :)

Everyone who makes a post about this and follows the rules of the challenge will receive a Blocktrades vote depending on the post quality and the quality of the three posts of the compilation (subjective from my point of view) and will receive 1 (ONE) liquid Steem right when the challenge ends.

A few requirements for submiting your entry

  • The title must be "My 2019: The last 2019 Showcase Weekend: Your own title".

Example: My 2019: The last 2019 Showcase Weekend - A series of travel adventures from anomadsoul.


  • Use the tag "blocktradescontest" and "my2019" so I can find the posts easierly.
  • Please do not post a Link to your entry in the comment section, I will not check out the links posted in the comment section, I will browse the tag.
  • The entry must be in english.
  • Resteem this post. I know, I ask for resteems a lot lately but, this kind of contests are aimed to reach the most Steemians we can, so everyone who wants to join finds out about it.

The prize has no limits, THE MORE PEOPLE JOIN, the more Steem I will give away,

So, what are you waiting for? Start browsing your 2019 posts and pick the three best ones!

The funds for the prizes will come directly from the earnings of this post, so if you like this idea, give it a little vote!

I was thinking of doing a post like this.

I can think of a few posts I made, especially in early 2019 (before joining ocdb and hf21) where I put in hours of work only to end up seriously unrewarded. Finally justice!

Damn right, there are so many content creators with masterpieces that went without any attention, so this is a good idea to try and encourage people to keep creating good content!

That's how I feel as well haha. I've been posting since Jan 2018, and there are posts with 20+ comments because they were awesome. Then in 2019 people left Steem and forgot me. Now my posts are with 0 or 1 comment more often than not. It feels lonely!

Hello @anomadsoul,

Very interesting contest.

Thanks for the GIF! Looking forward to seeing your entry!

You're welcome and of course I'll make my entry.

I'll be checking it out as well. It's unfortunate that the contest is in English, because most of your great posts are in Spanish.

I always write in Spanish, but if the occasion merits it I do it in English. And thanks for the praise of my publications

Awesome initiative here again. Thanks @anomadsoul.

Really hoping you can rally your community into joining my friend! You have a great reach, let's do this 💪🏻

I need to check people's profiles more often. I didn't know he had a community till you mentioned it. There must be many hidden things that we don't see because we don't click enough out of curiosity. At least myself haha. You were aware so you're better off in this regard.

Good you now know. Compliments 😃

Certainly will. I'm all in to grow steem an to build a solid career here. Meanwhile, does the age of the post to be reviewed matter?

As long as it was made in 2019 there's no problem with post age :)

It is! It's rare when I enjoy taking part in a contest, but I was really excited about this one because I am a very nostalgic person. Going through my old posts was like a gift I didn't know I could give myself. :P

Recaping 2019 and scrolling steem may bring some great fond memory for each post I believe. Looking forward to spend the weekend finding the bestest of the best😉..(if not get any travelling) ..... Very interesting to see the entries too.....hopefully could make into it....resteem🤟

Exactly! 1 year seems like such a short time, but looking back to make my contest entry made me realize that 1 year is a very long time haha. So many memories that seemed so old! It also doesn't help that I was in one stage in February and I crossed to another stage after the crisis started in Venezuela.

hello friend, will be able to give me 2 steam please I would be very helpful, thank you

It's really badly seen to ask for money on comment sections. I recommend you make friends and then ask them for money, it's more effective. :P

Wow,, amazing. Thank for this chance sir @anomadsoul and of course for @blocktrades for supporting this contest. I will try to choose my tree post and talk about it. Good luck sir and God bless you for this initiative.

Haha, for a moment I thought your posts were about trees. It seems you post a lot on contests and curations :) I hope you're getting a lot of success from trying so hard! I don't have your dedication. It's admirable.

Hi @cryptosharon

in principle, me and you and we all learn to manage our abilities, none of us do not try, maybe here I try strong, while in fact you are the strongest trying. I just try to describe photography and write freely here, but sometimes it is constrained by language, so I still have to learn. Greetings from Indonesia

Sounds perfect! Great to see you'll join this one too :)

Thank you so much sir @anomadsoul. Last night I have finish make my post about this contest. Just try to evaluate my self, because like you said everyone is winner. I hope can include there. God bless you


Btw, I want to participate by giving 15 steem for honourable mention like in last announcement. Do you allow me to do that sir @anomadsoul?

This is a very interesting post. I did scroll back and I found a lot of wonderful memories that I kept here in steemit and also my achievements in life. Furthermore I once wrote a fictional stories this year and I already forgor about it.

I might be posting about this soon. When will this contest due date be?

Sameee! Looking back was super awesome. I rarely reread a post of mine but I got a pang of nostalgia by checking out the thoughts I had at the start of the year, when things were so different for me. Life changes in a flash!

Me too. I rarely look back on what I write and I found out that I actually keep a lot of my memories in this platform, the worst, the happiest, everything and I actually writtwn a story once 🤣🤣🤣 Never thought I could actually did that. Totally forgot about the story one.

Good to hear you have some great material to be showcased! The deadline is stated right there on the post :)

Hey, @anomadsoul, I had a little trouble while processing my entry.

Sabes que cuando haces un tuit y pones menciones al comienzo, el tuit no es público sino dirigido? Igual se puede acceder a ese tuit desde el enlace incluso desde cuentas no involucradas, pero no aparece en el timeline ni en tags.

Hice dos tuits. El que es para el concurso tiene 3 menciones pero no es público porque las menciones están al principio. El que es para #posh si es público y está pinneado en mi perfil de Twitter.

Podrias confirmarme que sirve así? O necesito poner las menciones en otra parte (mas adentro del tuit para que sea publico) y tener solo un tuit principal que sirva tanto de #posh como de menciones para entrar al concurso?

Si estas confundido, revisa el comentario en mi último post y ahí creo que se explica mejor cuando ves los enlaces.
