Participants are given every opportunity to succeed! Quite a few people have requested to see the spreadsheet and I will have it available tomorrow once the challenge is closed to new participants.

No, no! Bad Highlander!

We want everyone to succeed!



to be equally distributed among all participants who successfully finish the challenge.

Okay... Sure, if only one person meets all the requirements, they will be awarded the entire thing! If no one finishes this challenge I keep the awards, return the donations, and will try again at a future date.

I will continue to accept donations to sweeten the prize pot until July 18th.

All successful participants will have their name entered into the randomizer.
The first name on the list will be delegated 5,000 STEEM POWER for the week that I'm attending my son's bootcamp graduation (July 23-30). This is roughly half of my account strength!

So let's get Community Strong!

These posts are still within the payout window. Please consider visiting them.

Day 1 posts

Day 2 posts

Day 3 posts


We've currently got 43 content creators

Also remember that part of their challenge is to have a minimum of 500 posts/comments by the challenge deadline of July 18th. Consider engaging them on their post.

This is where the rubber meets the road!


THE BEAST also known as the genesis post is getting too big! I can't believe I said that.

Indeed, some of us with old laptops or mobile devices are finding it increasingly difficult to load that page. LOL Well, heck yeah, I'm thrilled but we gotta do what we gotta do. I'm going to post a sister page for "The Beast" where we can post your links for challenge purposes. Keep an eye out for it. All liquid funds from that post will be added to the prize pool too.

  • If you are community oriented and wish to use this challenge for your non-English speaking communities, you have my blessing and full authority to do so. I encourage translators to take this and run with it. Beware! It's a lot of unexpected work.


You have a duty as a new Steemian to learn about witnesses and their important role within the community. Read @pfunk's Complete User's Guide to Steem Witnesses. You have 30 votes. Use them wisely.

@kubbyelizabeth, I wish I had more time to hunt for your posts. Please put them under your banner

to easily find it, hit CTRL+F, type in your name and it should take you there. If I don't see links under the banners I can't add them. I know you're good for it. Get them to me! :)


Your right, YOUR RIGHT, forgive me!!

Great post :)

I've enjoyed reading the works of everyone and finding new people to follow. After several days in the competition, I'm nervous I won't hit the 500 post mark due to family responsibilities...and I will keep plugging away!

Great update Meredith. So much support and community involvement with this one, I love it.
The Beast rolls on!

I did add my new (6th) post this morning to the beast page. I will watch for your next post with Beast Jr. :-)


You're on the ball! I've already seen you post on Beast Jr. LOL
Oh! That might be an art challenge! Design a "I survived the Steemit Community Engagement Challenge" t-shirt

And...storms are rolling in. It's my cue to shut down for a little bit and take a power nap :)


That would be funny! Yeah, we got pounded here a little while ago too. Supposedly we FL folk get storms next 2 days.


I love my daily thunder! There's something very calming about the rain hitting the roof and the long rolling rumbles. Of course my dog has to snuggle up really close to me... "My mighty protector" hahaha


As long as we have nowhere to go our daily storms are fun. We had lots of crazy lightning here over night. the cool kind that streak across the sky. I wish I had a better vantage point to try to takes pictures from the house. Tress in the way of the windows.


How 'bout that thunderstorm today, eh? I nearly lost power and it was shaking my house! woohoo! LOL


Well, the lakes are super full again :-) We had the power blink one time, but thankfully did not go out.

The beast is gathering many people from the community, thank you very much dear friend @ deserv99 for having incited this challenge, again congratulations for this great initiative.
I wish you all a happy day


@jlufer - I've started a new thread here and it has a link to the spreadsheet so we can track how everyone is doing. The ones who are falling behind could use extra help. Have a blessed day :)


Congratulations dear friend @ merryj99 for the great work you are doing, you are very neat in what you do, the exel template is extarordinary you can appreciate the information very well.
Yesterday, this correct I did not take it as part of the challenge because it corresponds to the results of the contest, as today is true, but two corresponds to the payment information of the contest.
Thank you very much for the great work you do.

Sounds like the competition is in full force. Big shout out of thanks to the donors and participants. As a Minnow, it's a delight to see this level of engagement happening.


I am really pleased with the amount of participation. It's a bigger undertaking than I expected but I'm hoping that everyone will come out a better blogger, will grow and also mentor the next generation of Steemians. It's a beautiful thing.
