Weekly Update 28

New All-Time High As @fulltimegeek Leads The Charge Over 10k SP!

Week 28 was simply amazing. It started out as a tough week as we lost some Minnowbooster leases and @themarkymark had to pull his 1K SP delegation, but ended on a super high-note as @fulltimegeek added a whopping 3000 SP to his delegaton (4500 SP in total!). The net sum of all the action is the account has now solidly broken 10K, and is in fact at 11500 SP! Thank you @fulltimegeek for your continued generosity!
Also in case you missed it, @fulltimegeek also sent a message last week. I think it deserves highlighting here so that you all might see his continued dedication to you, the Stewards of Gondor:

I don't know what he's planning, but there is no doubt it will be generous and exciting. So stay tuned and keep your eyes open for sure! ;)
On the upvote of our post this week, we had another good week of participation and as usual @fulltimegeek is still leading the way there! As far as Steem goes it was a horrible week, dropping 22% to $0.78 for the week (down $0.22 to $0.78). Since the drop was recent the internal market hasn't caught up, plus we received the big bump in our SP, so our vote values actually rose a penny to $0.18 per post per steward (+$0.01).
On the paid delegation front we did have a lot of activity as we got our 150 SP Minnowbooster lease during the week and also got a 125 lease at the market rate of 325 SP per steem from a big @fulltimegeek fan @public-eye. This is his second time for @public-eye delegating to the account and he has been a pleasure to work with! We also lost a delegation from the market and have another one coming due tomorrow, so we are successfully working through those as well.
Also I would like to thank @themarkymark for his generous 1000 SP delegation for many weeks. He never asked for anything and delegated to the account and really helped us for roughly 3 months! Thank you @themarkymark, your support of @fulltimegeek and his Stewards is definitely appreciated!
During the week we had a three more donations come in, two from repeat SOG donors @abh12345 and @cranium each giving 1 Steem; and one from repeat non-SOG member @bashadow of 1.0 Steem. These donations really help as they keep adding to our totals and certainly go a long way towards replacing our leased SP! Thank all three of you very much for your donations, you are all keeping the Stewards of Gondor program alive and helping @fulltimegeek to spread his message way beyond his initial Stewards!!!

This Weeks Payment On Posts Today (~$6 steem)

fog 28a.PNG

Tonight we will receive the 28th weekly payout since the launch of this program. The payout will about $6 steem (with the new payout formula, it will be all in steem), and it, along with any donations will be used to initiate new leases if the rates stay so favorable. The goal will be to add more new 13 week leases to replace the expiring 13 week leases each week that come due!
We have successfully built up and stabilized our account, and now we should provide a steady and growing upvote if we continue to get your support. The goal is to give the SOG members a real benefit and with your continued efforts to support us, we will continue to build the SP and curation trail.

As mentioned earlier these new donations and earnings of sbd from posts will be reinvested to grow the SP so that the SOG members get a bigger hit to their upvote. We have now started lengthening the leases from 13 to 20 weeks depending on market opportunities.

What you can do if you want to support this project to help @fulltimegeek and his #stewardsofgondor

#1 You can follow what we are doing and tell your followers and friends through various methods
#2 You can upvote our posts to increase the amount of earnings we have to lease more SP
#3 You can follow our curation trail (84th place already) on steemauto and have your upvote show moral support (even 2 or 3% is something that matters because it all adds up)
#4 You can donate directly like the wonderful people above
#5 You can delegate any of your own SP for any period of time that suits you while this Quest is ongoing
#6 Last but not least, you can thank the individual "friends" that are supporting this effort directly. Sometimes just a stop by and a small note saying you appreciate their help will make a big difference to a donor's day!

If you can't do any of the other 5 and you support what we are doing, then #6 is a very very effective way to help us. It encourage them to spread the word and rewards their efforts with "respect"

On top of the @asapers project that all began due to @fulltimegeek and his generous and amazing pay-it-forward mindset, we've started to push people to 500 SP. We have successfully pushed 4 users to minnow-status since this little project started 13 days ago and we'll do what we can to push one user each week.

As I delegate almost 100% of my Steem Power to the @asapers project, either directly to the official account or to the people directly involved, and I have pledged 3 steem per week towards the "push to 500 SP" project... I hereby pledge 1 steem per week towards the growth of @friendsofgondor.

You are awesome @hitmeasap! I think what you are doing with both @asapers and also with your new "push to 500 SP" project are both incredible! I hope many also jump on board your lead and recognize the value of your plan!

As to your donations of 1 steem per week, first that is very generous of you and definitely appreciated! So thank you :) ... And second, I have normally been taking all donations of steem and using it to lease steem to give the Stewards a bigger vote, so is that ok with you if we use your donation for that purpose? I know it runs a little different than just straight converting it to SP (which I will do if you direct me to), so that is why I am asking. I want to give you the proper respect of doing with the donation what you intend. So please just let me know :) ... and thank you again for the awesome gesture!

What you do with the donations is entirely up to you. To lease Steem ultimately leads to bigger votes for everyone, so that sounds perfect!

This is basically just an extra way for me to contribute, to some extent, and that's the whole purpose of my journey on Steemit. To grow my own account and to help others simultaneously.

Keep up the good work! :)

Cool... That's what I will do with it then! I think helping the Stewards to grow is the best way to show others the major contributions you all make along with @fulltimegeek. Together you are a force and the faster you become whales, the better place this will be for all! Thanks again for the selfless attitude @hitmeasap! :D

·

Much obliged!

WOW! 10K is amazing!!! :)

·

I agree Lynn! Its amazing how many people have contributed and made this continue forward! Hats off to everyone! :D

·
·

hahaha Hats off to everyone!! You and I would cheer the paper on the walls I think Dave ;)

·
·
·

hahaha... that's funny Lynn... AND TRUE! :D

WOW! What a great week indeed! I always am happy to publically thank @fulltimegeek for his awesome example of how a whale that cares about the long term health of the site should act!!!

·

Yes can you imagine how fun this place would be and how high the price of steem would be if others followed in his footsteps? (I mean the big boys/girls of course!)

Always good to hear from you @old-guy-photos! :D

Party time friend..
My name is not in list.. haha

·

get to know @fulltimegeek and what he is looking for... Then one day when he decides to expand his program, then you might be one that he will choose to help build this platform and take it to the next level! There are many people that admire what he does, so we can all learn from his actions!
