Sharing is caring! - 10 SBD Giveaway

in contest •  last year

Hello steemians!

Happy Sunday from me and Oscar, I hope you had an enjoyable weekend and you're fresh for the new week!


Today I celebrate 100 days on this amazing platform so I thought it would be a great occasion to organize a giveaway because it’s important also to give, not only to receive. I was inspired by many generous people who hosted giveaways.
I achieved a lot in this relatively short period of time and I want to say thank you very much for all your support, you are awesome!!


I wanted for long to host a contest but didn’t know what kind of theme I should pick for my first one and today it hit me, so I love to travel and I want to know more about your country or city’s stereotypes or/and landmarks.

So here is the theme of the contest:

  • Share a comment with your most popular stereotypes/clichés/landmarks of your city/country (you can use a gif or write it down, it’s up to you).

For example, when people hear I am from Romania, they think immediately about Dracula.

One of the most known attraction is, of course, the Palace of Parliament.


There will be five winners, each one will receive 2 SBD. The winners will be chosen randomly but must respect one rule: Upvote & resteem this post, in order to be reached by more people.

There is no need to create a post, you can add your entry through a comment! You can submit your entry until 23.59 (GMT+2), 25.02.2018

No one has ever become poor by giving.
―Anne Frank

I was born in Alaska. Have blond hair and blue eyes. People still think I'm an Eskimo. Waaa. True Story. The picture is of me at age 5 while living in Anchorage. Cheers.qq6.jpg



@crowe Don't forget to resteem and upvote my post, if you don't do that, you are not eligible!




Interesting. I'm intrigued; I have heard a few times that the term Eskimo is offensive. Is this the case?


I was never offended. I always liked the Eskimo's. Cheers.

Dracula has no chance in competition with MICI:

OoOo what do we have here?

First thing's first: Congrats on your first 100 days on Steemit!!!


Nikola Tesla, man who changed the face of the planet was born in a village Smiljan in my country, Croatia. He is best known for his inventions - electricity, X - rays, radio waves, laser, wireless communication and free limitless energy!
Btw, he died in New York - poor, alone and underestimated - but today we can say he is one of the world's greatest minds ever :)


bas sam razmisljala da stavim njega kao obelezje Srbije, ali nisam zelela da neko okrene temu naopako. Neka je i nas i vas, srecno :)


Thank you so much for your entry, but you forgot to resteem this post! :D cheers @matejka13


Croatian people often forget to do things :D
Resteemed :*

Congrats! That’s quite interesting to think about the impression about my city! Definitely would like to take part in!💖

Taiwan, a small island and a foodie paradise as well!
There are many yummy street snacks and loving & welcome residents! Always open arms to all the visitors from the world!
Here’s the famous landmark of Taiwan, BuildingTaipei 101!



Thank you! Waiting for your comment! :D

Here you can guess from food and drinks that where from I am:)



You have to upvote and resteem this post!!


Yes Sure:)

I forgot to upvote and resteem. I did it now.

I'm from St Louis, Missouri. Right in the middle of America. There are many stereotypes about St Louis from the outside world, most of them are true.

We like Baseball. True.
We're stubborn. True.
We drink beer. True.

But within our community, we have our own stereotypes about each other. West county is rich, South county is irish,, North county is black. Everybody who is poor is called a hoosier. And everybody always asks, "Where did you go to High School?"

Im not really entering your fun contest. I'm just sharing cause this looks like a fun invitation. Also, I didn't know people always thought Romania and Transylvania. That's funny. When my brother lived in Europe for work, he enjoyed vacationing in Romania. He loved it!




Thanks for sharing! I certainly did not know about those stereotypes!
Glad your brother enjoyed his time in Romania. Maybe one day you will come too with your family! Have a wonderful week!

sharing is caring for sure. this is so nice of you for doing ..


Thank you! I was inspired by you too! hugs

I am from nigeria and anytime people hear i am from nigeria they think of scamming and terrorism...its a very bad image and it saddens me most time...steemians please nigerians are good people...we are not terrorist or scammers!!!

Congratulations on the passage of 100 days
I claimed to be from the country of civilization Pharaonic I did not mention her name, but you learned a lot it is a country of civilization 7 thousand years and these are the picturesimages (7).jpegimages (15).jpegimages (5).jpeg


Thanks for your entry. If you want to be eligible, you must upvote and resteem this post! cheers @dylanstone

I'm from Germany and to start with the stereotypes i would name honest, punctual, we know how to bake bread, we eat sausages and sauerkraut all the time and drink a lot of beer ^.^ (personally i don't xD) our language also sounds very stiff and i would think that most people know the Brandenburger Tor in Berlin.


I took this photo in 2013 when i visited Berlin for the first time. Thanks for the contest :3

I was born in Republic of Moldova. Basically, Moldova is known for its wines and for the BUCURIA (TM) candies and all kind of sweets. And because my parents stay there, I visit them often and every time I take with me some of them. They are delicious!


I want some more of those, and that great Milestii Mici wine!

lol. great contest. honestly when people hear about my country--Nigeria--they think internet scam. it's sad but it's true.
great contest.


You can find something from your country!
Something other than scam


Ah yes, the Nigerian Prince email scam is to thank for that one haha!


exactly. that's the stereotype.

Great Contest! I`m from Bulgaria. Let`s start with the food. So if you visit my country, you have to eat banitza, tarator ( cold soup made with yougurt, chopped cucumber and water), drink rakia. That`s first on my mind. Currently I`m living in the capital, Sofia. Here you can visit all the nice restaurants. All the foreigners say that here is cheap both the food and the alcohol, but it`s delicios. The night life is aweome. You have a big choices of clubs, bars and etc. What can you visit: Of course all the important goverment buildings are here and they are really beautiful. We have big parks if you`d like to go for a walk - Borisova Gradina, South Park, The Park with the rings( the diffrent type of rings for every country), The Mountin Vitosha is here. Diffrent Monuments of persons that are important and related with our history. So yeah this is what comes on my mind while writing this comment:) And Congrats! You are doing great on Steemit. Keep on doing the same! Wish u luck and of cours I`m crossing my fingers to win the contest:) Ah the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is so beautiful in Sofia I`m uploading a photo of it from above and of course credits to the author of the picture ![15-karolisjanulis-15-1200x674.jpg]()

congratulations and get higher..



Congratulation to you for the 100 plus days on Steemit!!
This is my entry:

Buna Alexandra!
Cand vorbim de Romania nu putem sa nu ne gandim si la vinurile romanesti :). O confirmare ca sunt bune vine si de la regina Angliei care bea dor vinuri romanesti.
Deci, un pahar de vin romanesc pentru toti cei de pe steemit si nu numai.

Upvoted and resteem! Happy birthday so to say, @alexandraioana26 ! I truly believe you're generous and you deserve only the best to come for you:), i'm happy i met you and to be part of same beautiful city like you are! I can't say i have a favorite spot in our city...i do like when it's summer to find refuge in Tineretului Park, there are many spots where you can read or meditate. I will add a pic of my favorite place i loved going to with my son at the beginning of January which is located at Arena Nationala and we had a wonderful time the two of us.






Pics were made with my Sony Xperia Z2, you can pic your favorite:). I wish you much luck and sending you blessings:)!

Italian here... easy right? XD

Pizza, pasta, mafia, mandolino... the land of saints, poets and sailors!

We got so many stereotypes that it is hard to fit them all in one post :P

As for my home town, well it was a small country village and people from the city always saw us as rude, dumb and not worthy of attention!

Another big stereotype for italians (I live in Australia now and everyone confirms this!) is that we are cheapskates and always try to make a dollar out of everything!!!

Lol. Nice contest. When people hear about Nigeria specifically Lagos, you know that hustling is key.
Lagos=hustle. Lol

One in every five African is Nigerian; that is how large and populated Nigeria is. It’s Africa’s most popular nation. To me, every African is a Nigerian; and you will always see Nigerians in every country across the globe. But what is the country most famous for across the globe?
Nigeria, Africa’s giant, is too easily stereotyped as an oil (petroleum) wasteland. When you think oil, you think Nigeria. Though the country went from being 10th to 12th largest producer of oil in the world. I tell you, @alexandraioana26, Nigeria, my country, however, is the largest oil producer in Africa.
Thanks, @alexandraioana26, for this contest.

Though I live in the city now, I came from the province of Antique, Philippines. Usually, when people from the city asked me where I came from and I told them about my hometown. They would always ask me if Aswangs (dark-souled witches are true).


One of the known sites in our province is the relaxing kawa bath that is also related to our beliefs in aswang.


Everybody knows that English people are drinking tea. Well, living here for almost three years, I can confirm, they really drink a lot of tea, doesn't matter the time of the day. So, here we go :)

Happy 100days Steemit Birthday! :) Upvoted and resteemed!

The Arch of Triumph is a representative monument of Bucharest.

Hi I am @jysui I live in the Philippines. I think the most popular story about the Philippines being captured by the Spaniards and our Filipino ancenstors fought for freedom and about Magellan (a spaniard) fought against Lapu-Lapu (a Filipino)

Also happy 100th day on steemit! Cheers! Uovoted and resteemed 😀

Great idea, and it will be interesting to see some of the stereotypes. I am from England, and one of the strangest stereotypes about English people is that we have bad teeth. It's simply not true, although many English people don't opt for some of the Hollywood smile cosmetic dental procedures.

Thanks a lot for the lovely contest! :)


One of the most popular attractions in my area is Taughannock Falls NY.

Here is a picture I took of it last month.

Here is a blog I wrote about it.

giphy (15).gif

One of the biggest stereotypes about Spanish people is that they have a siesta. I have been here for 4 months and can confirm in my experience this is true. We live in a small place and the town closes at two and opens at 5. Most people go home for lunch and a sleep or quite time

Great post @alexandraioana26, I'm from Romania but I live in italy.
Here the most popular stereotype about Romanians is that we steal from people.
This stereotype was formed due to a lot of gypsies that are here in Rome just to steal and beg on streets, and when somebody asks them where they're from, they answer Romania!
So yeah, we are known for being good at stealing!!!

Cheers to 100 Days! Much success in such little time :)
Thank you very much for the contest @alexandraioana26... I will let Colbert explain a bit about the land I come from.


@jeffjagoe - This is a classic...hahaha

Maybe you didn't know that Nikola Tesla is from Serbia, but you certainly knew that Exit festival is ours. :)


Hi everyone! I'm from Turkey and have been living in Western Europe for some years now. One of the funniest stereotypes about Turkish people is that they are told to be eating Döner or Kebab all the time! Many People I got to know outside Turkey are thinking that the Turks eat Döner everyday :)

the original post was upvoted/resteemed

Upvote and resteem. Soon will post for this challenge! I think you have to choose a #tag.

Faina initiativa, sunt curios ce gif-uri o sa iasa castigatoare.

lol, I think government corruption may just be bigger...

Pennsylvania has its own unique stereotypes! Thanks for hosting!

Hello :) Felicitari pentru idee!
Particip si eu cu o fotografie a primariei (o particica din ea) din Arad care este o atractie pentru turisti si este printre cele mai impressive locuri din oras. Good luck! :)

Im from Texas, USA! People always associate Texas with cowboys, horses and the old west! Many many years back that may have been true, but now a days, things are a little different! We are still known for cowboys, but its now the football team. No matter how bad we are sucking any year, Texans are still loud and proud when it comes to our team! We are all about our BBQ, meat to be exact! Doesnt matter if its beef, pork or chicken or any other wild animal. Ill leave with one final note, our "slogan", Dont mess with Texas!


Don't forget to resteem @smylie2005!


Oopps!! Forgot that part ;)

Hello, I'm from Malaysia and I think the most stereotype that people thinking of Malaysia is thinking its a country consist of only 1 race or 1 religion -the Malay, as the country name implies.

But in fact, Malaysia society is of very diversified, different cultures different religion and makes Malaysia a truly Asian country. You can find Malay Chinese Indian culture cuisine religion festival everywhere in the country. We celebrate the Chinese New Year, Malay Muslim Eid al-Fitr, Indian Divali Festival, Christian Christmas all together as family. Hope you would one day visit Malaysia to show how true am I saying.

None of Cheburashka in the manufacture of Ushanka was not injured!

•When people hear I am from Nigeria, they think of Nigerian being an “unserious fellow,” or a “joker” who always finds something funny in every situations. This is a simplistic idea making light of the difficulty of being Nigerian and often buttressing the lackadaisical attitudes of our politicians towards structural restructuring of this great country.
•One of the most known attraction is, of course, The Zuma Rock in Abuja

Where else in the world would you find a kangaroo in your pool?

Australia of course! They are not that common in the cities (other than in the zoo) but in the outer suburbs they seem to get up to all sorts of mischief.

I just thought that any posts about different countries should include one with kangaroos from Australia :D I like this contest and I think you should list is in the #newbiegames initiative as well:


Thanks for your advice and glad you liked it @plushzilla!


When people hear the name Nigeria, the first thing that comes to their mind is the “terrorism act" that is happening currently in my country, but, take a good look at the image above, thats an image of Lekki-Ikoyi in Lagos.
This is Lekki, the land of Beaches in Lagos, Nigeria. Two of the things Lekki is known for is luxury real-estate and beaches. If you are a big fan of the ocean, then you’ll find a beach that is perfect for you in the numerous private and public beaches located in the Lekki Peninsula in Lagos, Nigeria.
Nigeria is a great country. You're gonna love it here

Hi, Alexandra!

It's a great contest, congratulations for the initiative.
Castles have always attracted tourists eager to discover the history of Romania.

So, here is my entry:


Romania is also known for the Peles Castle in Sinaia, which attracts every year a lot of tourists from all over the world.

Tourists have the opportunity to admire sculptures, paintings, carpets and furniture, armors, tapestries and statuettes, gold and silver dishes, stained glass windows and fine porcelain objects. The interior of the castle is as grandiose as the history it carries.

I wish you a great week! Hugs


beautifull lucia...

When it comes to Arad, we are certainly talking about the Neptun Swimming Place knownas “Strandul Neptun”. This recreation place is situated on the banks of the Mures River and stretches over an area of ​​20 hectares of greenery, with over 65 species of trees. It is considered the largest of Romania's Swimming Place and the second biggest in Europe, located near the water . The Strand Neptune is divided into two areas:

  1. Pool area with water slide, children's playgrounds, tennis court, volleyball court; mini football field with night-time facility and leisure clubs.
  2. Commercial area that has become a promenade. At night, this area becomes an attraction for countless restaurants, bars, clubs, terraces. There are various festivals and outdoor concerts in the summer. The
    Neptune Strand has three entrances through which over 3 million visitors enter each year.


Hi, I congratulate you on your achievement!! I live in the port and tourist city of Odessa. To describe how wonderful he is long, so I will post a photo. The photo shows the famous Odessa Opera and ballet theatre. Or rather a part of the theater.

And about our beautiful city, I did a post a long time ago. You will come to Odessa, visited this sight.
And you flowers, congratulations again!!

Many of Nigeria's most noteworthy landmarks are man-made(made by man) , including a number of prominent statues and formal city squares. Others, such as Benin Moat, the Gurara Falls and the Owu Falls are all features of the amazing and captivating natural landscape of my great country 'Nigeria'.

Congratulations on your 100 days on steemit am a Nigerian .
We Nigerians are not known for one thing in particular. We are known for our politics,economic activities,our mineral resources and also our cultural and traditional heritage. Nigeria is known as the giant of Africa and it is suffering from economic and political instability. We used to have great and influential leaders such as Obafemi Awolowo,Nnamdi Azikiwe,Tafawa Balewa,and most prominent of them is Olusegun Obasanjo.





Excuse you? South Africa is the giant of Africa. Nigeria is known internationally for Nollywood and their terrible movies.


South Africa!!!!! . Really......dream on.


Wake up bro, stop dreaming!

I am from Peru, and when I mention my country, everyone tells me, Machupichu and the Inca culture.
Peru gathers all the blood and races, it is the lung of America for its jungle and it has beautiful landscapes in its mountains.
The carnivals are very typical and our alpacas are very valuable and beautiful animals.
What distinguishes the Peruvian? Creative, hardworking, friendly, the country of friendship.

I live in Romania and I know that many people from other countries know that our country is very beautiful and for sure everybody heard about Transfăgărășan :D Also congratulations for your first 100 days on Steemit! :*

Resteem & upvote done although i am a minnow.


First i want to say a big congratulation as you celebrate 100days on this platform.wishing you many more celebrations🍻.
I am a Nigerian, and there is this sterotype, that Nigerians are very LOUD
There’s a caricature of the Nigerian either talking on the phone or talking to a friend, who’s always shouting at the top of her/his lungs, this stereotype is false. Humans generally are created with varying personality traits, we have those that are loud, quick to anger, mild and so on. Just as there are people who are loud and vivacious living in the country, there are also people who are quiet and soft spoken. Same is applicable all over the world. The above stereotype about Nigerians is FALSE


Thanks for your entry. In order to be eligible, you must resteem this post! @vwoke



well from the place I currently live which is Calgary, I'd say the most stereotypical thing would be a cowboy haha, it goes a long way here and even people are proud to be called cowboys :D... I've also got myself a cowboy hat to blend more with the city :D


Thanks for participating my contest, but you forgot to resteem and upvote my post @cobmaximus, if you don't do that you are not eligible!
