Weekly Update 49

Fulltimegeek Clears The Path Forward With 300 Steem Donation!

As our 1 year anniversary quickly approaches, @fulltimegeek did it again. When we get obstacles in our path forward (from you know who), it isn't long til @fulltimegeek finds a solution. He broke open a clear path forward with a 300 Steem contribution this week, taking us to almost 22K SP!



We immediately put the steem to work and were able to secure leases from 13 weeks to as high as 20 weeks. We also still have another 700 SP lease offer out there, so it could go even higher too. Needless to say I was surprised to see the donation, but once again @fulltimegeek found a way to show his support for his Stewards and the people that show their support of the program each week! I'm sure everyone who follows this project will join me in thanking you @fulltimegeek, you are truly one of a kind in our Steem universe!
Steem held its own for the week, and we did cross back over the 30 cents mark, so the week was a slight positive in that regard... The vote values were flat to slightly down until our delegations came in, but by the end of the week we did manage to grow the vote value to a $0.14 vote value per post per steward (+$0.01).
In addition to the previously mentioned 300 Steem donation, we also had 2 other donations (3 Steem). Both non-SOG members @bashadow (1 Steem) and @preparedwombat (2 Steem) continued to show their appreciation! Its really amazing to see their consistency and my hat tips to you both this week as well! Also while I started this update with talking about FTG's donation, it is also very important to talk about the other donations too. I feel that the weekly donations that have come in have been a integral part of why this program has succeeded... And while the donations might not be of the same size as FTG's, they nevertheless represent sacrifice and validation of the idea. So I want to thank everyone that has donated at ANY time to the program, and especially want to thank the ones that come back week after week. It isn't hard to know who these people are (just look below), but the bottom line is that my respect and admiration also go out to YOU. Thank you all very very much!
Our post had a good week with 100+ upvotes, as well as @fulltimegeek and his bots joining the fray, but as we have come to experience, the post was hit by a jealous and petty individual that isn't even worth mentioning. Having said that, we still have a roughly $1 post value at this time. So if it holds, then we will add that to any donations to continue our path forward! Thank you all for your upvotes, while they might not seem to add to our account, in reality they definitely did, since their removal spurred FTG to find an alternative path forward. ;)

This Weeks Payment On Posts Today (~$2 Steem)

fog 49a.PNG

Tonight we will receive the 49th weekly payout since the launch of this program. The payout should be approximately $2 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"

All I know is when I look in the dictionary under "SELFLESS" or "GENEROUS" or "LOYAL" I see @fulltimegeek's picture!! What an example to the other whales! Much obliged to you, Sir. @fulltimegeek

Your envy is palpable. What have we done to offend you today @berniesanders?

People think that just because it is not in the headlines, or that it is not being mentioned, (fed), that trolls and bad actors are going away, they are not. There are a lot of pissant accounts that go around randomly flagging people, and some larger accounts that think it is their way or the highway, and that they want to control the narrative. They are still here, they will always be here, whether people want to look or not.

We will always need people that have the ability to aid those that get caught in the cross-fires of the flagwars.

ps: **Thanks @fulltimegeek for your support of the friends and stewardofgondor

·

Highly rEsteemed!

·

You are so right @bashadow... The accounts may change but the desire to control will not... Glad you see it! And thank you too for everything you do!

300 Steem?!?!?!

Whoa!!!! You’re rich!!!!!

(Goddamn that’s fucking weak and pathetic)

Obviously one of the most noticeable gestures on the platform, @friendsofgondor is really doing a brilliant job, and I've know @fulltimegeek almost a year now, what a man, what a contribution.

·

Thank you very much for that @josediccus... And you are right, the guy is handsdown the best leader we have out there. He shows with his actions what others just pretend to be with their words... Thanks for taking the time to stop by and give a word of encouragement.. Its definitely appreciated!

What's the project about?

Hey @sfcq240788, this is a program to support the Stewards of Gondor... The account votes the posts of the Stewards. To give you some background, in the early days @fulltimegeek felt that he was getting too much power on the Steem blockchain and felt that he could unfairly sway good/bad content. So he decided to delegate ALL of his SP to people he handpicked to be good stewards of the community and he named them Stewards of Gondor and gave them the control of his rather large SP.

Then after some people had grown so large as to take an unfair portion of the reward pool PLUS flag anyone who opposed them, FTG had to take back his SP from the Stewards so that he could use that SP to try and stop them. This account was set up at that time in order to help those Stewards still get some recognition (and hopefully some post votes to help them to grow).

That was 49 weeks ago and we have just continued to move forward week by week. The reason is FTG still is fighting and the Stewards are still active in building a community, so its our way of showing support. The people that support this project vary, but a large portion aren't even Stewards and get nothing more than the satisfaction of knowing they are helping FTG's chosen helpers. As you can see by this post's replies (if you care to look), there are people that are jealous and petty and essentially try to ruin it for everyone. That's why the people that DO support this take the time to do so. They know that FTG is using his SP to fight these negative forces and appreciate it. By helping his Stewards, we are indirectly helping FTG because he gets to accomplish his original mission of developing leaders of the community, and at the same time, be able to fight against some of the unjust and distasteful shenanigans that go on.

Feel free to ask me any more questions, I will be happy to answer if you care to know more!

That was your most rockin gif to date. Thank you for all you do to lift our spirits @friendsofgondor, and everyone who keeps this alive. The continued support of this project continues to blow my mind.

·

Hey Lyndsay :) ... yes I liked it too... Very appropriate for the occasion ;) ... and yes the support is amazing and I think its due to the whole selflessness of the people involved. Whether FTG, the Stewards, or the supporters, everyone that is involved are truly stellar individuals.

Well done Dave!
