CONTEST: My 2018 - This is my Hobby | 100 SBD in Prizes!

in #contest4 years ago (edited)

My 2018 - A @blocktrades sponsored contest.

But Nomad don´t be silly, I blog everyday about my hobbies and passions, to join this contest is like repeating my blog posts, there is nothing different, I can just post the same I´ve been posting the past 2 months...

This contest is not about you posting your drawings or you latest travel adventure, this contest has nothing to do with the way you take care of your garden or how you cooked that meal you ate last saturday, the post you will create to join this contest will not be about your latest science fiction story or analysis of your favorite coin...

This contest is about your passion, why you have it and what drives it

No no, I don´t want you to post examples of your hobby, I wan´t you to tell me about your hobby.

  • Why do you fell passion about your hobby?
  • How did you picked this hobby? Or better yet, how did this hobby picked you?
  • How long have you been doing it...? Are you learning more and more every day?
  • What is is that you love about this hobby? Do you like it because you are good at it? Do you love it because it takes away the stress? Do you enjoy it because it is challenging?
  • When do you practice it? Is it part of your daily life or do you have to go out of your routine to be able to do it?
  • Is it something you share with someone else or is this hobby YOUR thing and you do it by yourself?
  • What is going on in your mind when you do it?
  • Is your hobby a priority? Does practicing takes away time with your family or partner? Do you have it high on your priority list or is it not that important compared to family and friends?
  • Is your hobby expensive? Do you spend a lot of money when you practice it? What sacrifices you make to be able to practice your hobby?
  • Are you an amateur? An adept? An expert? What makes the differences between them? Does it depend only on skills or do you also need tools or equipment to become better?
  • Are you lucky enought that, is your hobby part of your job?
  • If you would have to explain your hobby to an alien, how would you do it?

These are just examples of how to create your post, you don´t have to talk about all of them and you can add other things you want, those are just a few guidelines in case you don´t know how to make your post!

If you want to add pictures that´s awesome! It´s even better!

Rules for the contest! Yes... there are rules :(

1.- Your post must have the title My 2018 - This is my Hobby: Here goes your hobby

Example: My 2018 - This is my Hobby: Hunting Sharks in the Pacific Ocean.

2.- The post must have at least 1,000 words. This is a post about your hobby! Give it some love and make an effort to make a long and big post!
3.- You have to use the tag "My2018" and "Thisismyhobby" otherwise I won´t be able to check out your post :(
4.- Please do NOT use the tag "blocktrades" or "sndbox".
5.- Obviously, no Plagiarism, I only want original content!
6.- Be creative, have fun!!
7.- You don´t have to upvote this post to join, but I´m askig you to Resteem it so more people can join the contest. If more people join, there is a big chance I pitch in more SBD to the prize pool.

Note: If your post does not fulfill this small list of rules I can´t consider it to win :(

First of all, i want to thank you and the sponsors of the contest to give us a chance to win the prize and to show what we got. I really enjoyed writing mine as it made me very emotional. Check my entry out. Thank all of you and God bless all of you ^_^

My Entry

Much love,

Dang I just did a post the other day about my photography journey that would have been suitable perhaps as an entry for this contest so my timing was terrible but if I can find the time to come up with a post for this contest that isn’t just the same again as that post I will do an entry

Thanks for hosting such a cool contest

Ps Ré your comment on another persons entry for the sandbox quest and am I entering I didn’t want to hijack her post with a response and a link to my post but I hope it’s ok to do it here

This post covers part one of the quest but also explains that due to a few reasons I just won’t be able to find the time or get out to get new photos for the quest so as much ch as I would love to try out for the sandbox I just cannot at this stage.
With an office move on Friday and borderline pneumonia at present time is limited and I cannot risk going out in the cold here for photoshoots

That said I did that post to spread the word of the quest as well as told a few photog friends

Fantastic competition! Any idea on the prize structure yet?

I think this shouldn't be the main concern! Just share what you love and see every dollar you might get as a bonus! ;)

You got a 5.02% upvote from @brupvoter courtesy of @jmehta!

Very cool contest guys, thanks for the opportunity, I had to jump in with my mind heart and soul on this one!

your content is also very very good!!! i just did it so i think that im probably not going to win anything haha ,wish me luck

This is a challenging contest but another way to reward more steemian, thanks to @blocktrades for the delegation to @anomadsoul.

Here is my entry to this contest :

Certainly its very creative contest, had resteemed it earlier, so that others could participate.

Great idea anomadsoul. I'm going to give it a go with my passion and hobby of scuba diving. I'll try to keep it under 2000 words ;-) see you on the other side.

  • N.B. Completely failed to keep it under 2000 words but 2059 ain't far off :-) here is my entry:

I enjoyed a lot making my post after receiving challenge to join this contest.

I put a lot of pictures to make you think my hobby is Photograpy, but it is actually to show my real hobby, have i already awaken your curiosity?

so without further ado, please find My hobbies

hope you enjoy!

@jodevasquez, @por500bolos ... Play on...

You got to this one before me...and I saw entries all over the contest tag today. Must be fate.

Tomorrow is another post :-)

Something tells me you've got @ginabot finely tuned to those contest tags and all the keywords related to writing :) I need to crack the secret combination...

GinaBOT? GinaBOT? Nah, this is all manual.

You have my respect (^-^)ゝ

Good thing you "Never Give Up" (@iamthegray).

although at the beginning I wanted to do the post English and Spanish, I do not have much knowledge in English, and using the translator was a horrible translation XD so I went back to edit and here is in Spanish, it was done with great care.

I wish luck to all the other contestants

Estimado @anomadsoul:

Se te agradece arrojar luces sobre ésto...

Dependerá del número de participaciones!

Im going to post about my gaming hobby. Been going strong for 40 years.

very interesting contest! RESTEEM first!

The last question is savage. I don't care if I can win this competition or not. But I do care to have some chit-chat about my passion with the alien. 😎

You gotta explain him right! So he wants to practice with you!

Quick question from a relative newbie on Steemit, do we use lower case for the tags? In the rules you said My2018" and "Thisismyhobby, but Steemit doesn't allow upper case letters. Looking forward to submitting my entry soon.

Well, lower case is fine, i used upper case so you could read it without problem :)

Thanks for letting me know. I'm kind of a dummy when it comes to these things, but I figured it out. Very cool contest by the way.

Your contests are amazing. I love you man @anomadsoul. My entry coming.

Wow, this is going to be a challenge. It will be like writing a high school essay. I think I will give it a try!

Had to make a quick forget-this-not comment. I hope to participate :)

Awesome post ... resteemed to the community !

Okay, let me think what is my hobby.
Hmm sleeping maybe one of my hobby. But i will take a chance for this contest. Thanks for always make an interesting contest. That's why i always waiting for your post.

yesss another contest hosted by the awesome @anomadsoul! This is definitely worth sharing! ❤

Oooooh...crypto spending money.
[type type type type type]

wow nice your post...i like this post..

Now we only have to wait for the SBD to jump back up in price to get motivated :))))

hey dude, not to be rude
but can I take part
just start
even if my post will be about my business?
I put all my passion there, no less!

Today I bring you a poem with a greeting from my second account I am on a personal quest to write 1000 poems and ask 1000 steemians for 1 SBD. This is my fundraiser to get my own business going. I started to work as a coach and I want to make coach people with disabilities at a more reasonable price. As you might know I have celebral palsy myself and I really want to show the world and also myself that I can still make it!
Life has taught me a lot, especially in the last couple of years and I want to use all I have to help others reach their full potenzial. I just need a little to really get startet. So I am fundraising. All that send me SBD will get there own personal poem. Are you on bord? Do you want your own poem?

Of course! My own poem sounds nice, let me know when you do it please! Leave a comment in one of my other posts (preferably the newest one you find).

Ok... I'm in!

excellent friend, I really like this contest, talk a little about our hobbies I think it's great, scored!

Que bien seguro participare

Hola amigo @anomadsoul. Un gusto en saludarlo. Aquí te dejo mi participación. Espero sea de tu agrado. Saludos!

Oh wow what an excellent idea! This is so me, I love it, am going to start writing my entry now.
Funnily enough, I actually have a competition wanting people to 'show their thing' but it's the opposite to yours and is about making content. Mine doesn't have any backing, so It's just finding it's feet, and I hope it's something I can grow and build apon so it really is valuble to the steem community.
I'm so glad to see other people are doing similar things but with more support, it's a great idea to help grow the steem creative community! Thanks for the opportunity, will be posting my entry soon.

Perfect! I can´t wait to read your entry! :D

You've already seen it! You suggested me to sandbox!

Am in... This is interesting...

Amazing initiative!

Yo estaré posteando también en español, amigo!

It might take a while for me, I love many things without any apparent reason for liking them.

You wrote concise and interesting article .I upvote and follow you.Kindly upvote my amazing article and follow me as well.This is togetherness.

I love this contest, I thank you for inviting us to participate, this will allow us to tell you about what I like to do when I have free time. My favorite hobby is drawing, crafts and the game of perinola.

Your contest was added to Steemit Contest Compilation for current week (19.03-25.03)

Thanks my friend ^^

Here Is my Entry To The Contest! I Spent A Long Time On It And i Followed All The Instructions!

I sincerely thank you @anomadsoul for this excellent opportunity. This brought so much memories while I was writing. So here's my entry. I do hope you read and enjoy

This sounds like a fun contest :D However, my hobby and work are the same: art and drawing. The only difference is that I draw dragons for fun not work, so could I write about that? I'll definitely let my brother know about this contest, as he qualifies much better than me :)

Of course you can write about it! And of course your brother can join!

I feel like I'm gonna spend a couple of days completing this post.

Wish I had seen this sooner
