SPUD Initiative and Twitter Awareness | Earn 7 SBI Shares and Other Rewards!

in #busy3 years ago (edited)

In honor of both the SPUD (Steem Power Up Day) initiative as well as the 777 (#seven77 on Twitter) initiative, I’ll be running a contest in hopes of getting more participation for both!

May 1st, 2019 is Steem Power Up Day and was introduced by @streetstyle. This is a day when all participants will power up some STEEM into their account. It doesn’t matter if this STEEM comes from an exchange, your liquid holdings in your wallet, converted SBD, etc.

Check out the SPUD Countdown Page I made on my website and also reference the end of this post or the page on my blog for detail on how to participate in SPUD and earn 7 SBI and the potential for an additional 77 SBI from me!

To participate in SPUD, all you have to do is power up some STEEM into your SP holdings on the Steem blockchain.

#Seven77 (777) is an initiative launched by @nathanmars. The initiative focuses primarily on Twitter and the central goal is to bring more positive attention and action to the Steem blockchain.

@nathanmars has done an incredible job so far in getting nearly 200 daily participants in the #Seven77 movement on Twitter and it’s clearly having a great impact on user activity on the Steem blockchain.

It’s also allowing CT (Crypto Twitter) to see that the Steem blockchain is so much more than Steemit, Inc. — one of the greatest challenges that we face in bringing mass adoption to the Steem blockchain.

If you aren’t already participating in the 777 movement, then please consider getting a little more active on Twitter and using the hashtags #steem and #Seven77 to bring some more positive attention to the Steem blockchain.

The Benefits of Powering Up:

The benefits of powering up are pretty clear to anyone who’s active on the Steem blockchain. Powered up STEEM gives you more influence on the blockchain, allows you to reward and build an audience, build a business, support projects with delegations and even earn a passive income.

The benefits of powering up STEEM are not well known to the crypto community and to the world at large. The SPUD initiative can make a big difference in changing this perspective and hopefully getting people to ask the questions: “Why are so many people powering up STEEM and talking about it? … What is powering up? … How can I benefit from powering up STEEM?”

How to Participate in SPUD and Seven77 and Earn 7 SBI Shares From Me:

To encourage participation in both of these initiatives on May 1st, I’ll be giving 7 SBI shares to everyone who participates by doing the following 3 things on May 1st:

  1. Power Up some STEEM — There is no minimum amount, just power up whatever you are able to!
  2. Post a Tweet using the hashtags #Steem and #Seven77 — Say 1 thing that you love about the Steem blockchain.
  3. Tag me in the Tweet — You can tag me either in the actual Tweet itself or in a threaded reply to your main Tweet. This is to make sure that I don’t miss your Tweet!

Note: Everyone who participates will be awarded 7 SBI shares from me. After that, I’ll do a draw and choose 1 winner who will get an additional 77 SBI shares!

Don’t know what SBI is? Check out this post by @steembasicincome who’s mission is to bring a basic income to all Steemians!

I’ll be powering up 777 STEEM for SPUD and #Seven77 awareness. Any amount you can do to show your support for both the Steem blockchain as well as the movement to bring positive attention to Steem is amazing!

Do you plan on participating in SPUD on May 1st? Let me know in the comments below!

My Twitter Handle: @Khaleelkazi1


Participated in SPUD, Twitted, tagged, upvoted and resteemed: thanks, @khaleelkaz!

A huge hug from @amico! ;)

Awesome! Thank you for participating and making Steem a stronger blockchain! The SBI shares are on their way very soon, stay tuned for the announcement later today ;)

Thank you very much for your generosity, dear @khaleelkazi!

If anyone is wondering what "SBI shares" are, since it sounds kind of enticing, like they're valuable, and given to you in exchange for helping out....

I wondered that, too. I kept winning SBI shares, and being given them from friends and followers. While I still actually don't know much about them, what I do know is that they have no effect for me. So for me, it's something to avoid, a potential time and money waster. Others say they've made it work, which is great for them.

Well, the effect is that you are getting upvotes on a regular basis. You might want to change your attitude to gratitude to those friends who have given you SBI. Upvotes for life. Seems like something to embrace instead of to avoid.

But then again, maybe you don't like to earn crypto - in that case, avoid it.

Couldn't have said it better myself, @mariannewest! Many new and even long-time users of Steem can have trouble getting consistent upvotes on their posts for any meaningful value. While SBI shares may not yield a really high return, it does allow you to earn regular upvotes on your posts and I think the value of that cannot go understated! Thank you for spreading the good message of positivity 😇

Thank you and you are welcome 😀

Thank you so much for participating and making our blockchain better! I hadn't heard of the free write house community before, but now I'm very intrigued and will be looking into it. Do you have any good intro posts I could read? Thanks! -- those SBI shares are coming today as well - stay tuned for the announcement post 😊

Thank you so much! The Freewritehouse grew out of the community that developed around the daily 5-min Freewrite prompt, now at day 559, posted @mariannewest's account.
The freewritehouse was started to be able to offer more rewards for the freewriters (and others) by holding contests and doing all kinds of activities to build community.
We did a bunch of introductory posts when we first started, but if you look at the account, you see the regular contests and curation projects we are running right now.
We have delegations from several members and are doing an SBI - grow the Freewrite House- campaign.
On the bottom of the posts, we usually list all the activities we are doing.
This is one of our longest running weekly contest

Hi @khaleelkazi, I am definitely going to power up some Steem today! I hope lots of others do too and I will tweet about it later when I power up some more in 10 hours from now. Already up 50 SP from where I was at 0:01AM UTC. Love what you are doing here! Here's my tweet https://mobile.twitter.com/RealCrypticat/status/1123442847141724160 I've powered up over 1130 steem already! Here's a post about it https://steemit.com/spud/@crypticat/steem-power-up-day-the-lucky-way

You're Killing It!! Great work! Thank you for supporting the Steem blockchain and making it a healthier ecosystem by powering up. I'm overwhelmed by the amazing response from the community... I'm doing the tallies of everyone who powered up for SPUD and particpated in my contest and the total is already at 21,800 SP!!! It's incredible!

Just as good a day as any to power up. It was all gambling wins anyways.

I have SPUD for my two accounts @happyhooenix and @calmphoenix.
Then I Tweted

Awesome! Thank you for participating and joining the revolution to make Steem even better!

Thank you, it's honored to be part of this movement.

Sounds awesome. I can't wait to participate in SPUD. I'll make a tweet and tag you as well

Posted using Partiko Android

I can’t wait either! It’s going to be fun to see if we can make a dent in the power up statistics for tomorrow!! Please do and I can get you those 7 (and maybe even 77!) SBI shares!!

Posted using Partiko iOS

I should have done SBI from the very beginning but I didn't quite understand how to get involved. I found the initial posts confusing lol

Lol I feel 100% the same way! I've just gotten interested in it recently and I absolutely wish I would've gotten involved sooner. It was very hard to understand at first, but now it makes perfect sense!

cant wait til it makes perfect sense for me lol but I'm into it. I've seen other steemians with nice upvotes since its inception.

DO IT! Thank you for participating! I'm so happy to see you and so many others working hard to make Steem a stronger blockchain and building our community from the ground up ;) I see you powered up a bunch of Steem recently! Congrats and I look forward to seeing you around the chain real soon!

Yes, in STEEM we trust! XD

Ah yes! I jumped on this initiative and posted my own post. Seeing as I am participating, I may as well enter your contest as well and dust off my twitter account.

So awesome to see you on board and it is very generous of you to put up this contest. Sbi will only benefit the lifers as well and that’s me!

Awesome! I’ll bookmark your post and read it tonight!

I wasn’t much of a twitter user until the idea of making Steem popular over there under the # Steem tag became a mission.

Thanks! I’m just getting into SBI and I wish I were more informed about it before. It’s a great way to support others and build your own account as well! I’ll be sending you 50 LEO as soon as I get home to my laptop and you’ll be able to redeem those for 2 SBI shares as well!

Posted using Partiko iOS

Leo? Can’t say I know what that is yet but always open to learn.

I just am happy to see you back and active. I remember the intro post you made years ago about your investment in steem and following some of your strategy.

So good to have you back bro.

Posted using Partiko iOS

Leo is my own little creation on Steem Engine. I'm working out the details for distributing it and also distributing rewards to hodlers! My idea behind it is a PBLT - Personal Brand Loyalty Token. My hope is that it will allow me to build better and more consistent engagement on my content on Steem and also on my website - khaleelkazi.com.

I'm happy to be back and active! I never really left, but I definitely took a more lax approach the past few months as I reconsidered what I wanted to do with myself here on Steem. I miss the engagement and communication of the old days and I hope to recapture it! Thanks for being a part of it then and a part of it now and hopefully in the future as well 😊

Hope it will turn in a monthly appointment to gather the community

Awesome, thanks for joining the movement!!!

I too hope SPUD becomes a monthly and regular movement. Powering up STEEM and showing the world why that's a valuable activity is so vital to the health of this blockchain!

Awesome! Thank you for being a believer in Steem! SBIs will be sent out shortly ;)

Will surely SPUD. You have been my inspiration since some time ago and that time you had some contest too for Bloggers. Remember?

And now you and @nathanmars and others are leading by example for us to follow. Big thank you=)

That’s great! I saw your tweet and I’m sending those 7 SBI shares your way!

Yeah I remember, those were quite different times but fun as well! Back then we only had Steemit and now look at us! Thanks to you back for being a part of the movement to put Steem in front of more eyeballs!!!

Awesome, will check it out! Hope I'm not too late! I'm sending out those SBI shares today, apologies for the delay, I wasn't expecting such a massive turnout for SPUD. I couldn't be any happier about it though 😄

Nope. Not too late.

Just Resteemed and I’m sure we need more awareness

It's all good bro! Thank you for your support and for making your post as well. It means the world to me and your initiative with seven77 has had a MASSIVE impact on the number of Tweets about Steem! We've surpassed most of the other cryptocurrencies for number of tweets and we're catching up to Bitcoin, Eth and EOS! Keep it going brotha 💙

Thank you so much for participating and working hard to bring awareness to Steem through SPUD and your commitment to the blockchain by powering up.

As a community, the best thing we can all do is continually show our commitment to Steem through daily actions such as these!

I liked this idea (it's seems to be a really good one) and I'm planning to participate!

I'm sorry for this, but I'm trying my best to promote this: It's about a movie challenge that I've just created. This is the first time that I try to make a contest with a broader scope and I ask for your help to promote (resteem / upvote... it's optional) and participate.

Here's the link with all the infos: MOVIE CHALLENGE (#01): "An Unexpected Horror Crossover" | Announcement + First Edition.

It's all very simple, you just need to be creative. There are 10.000 STEEM on the table for prizes!


Done, upvoted, powered up, tweeted and tagged you. Thanks for supporting all of us with this . https://twitter.com/mjflatow/status/1123653095911616512

So, this is an initiative to help popularize and promote Twitter?

Am sure excited about it and really looking forward to it :)
