Hi @brittandjosie Thank you very much for featuring my #introduceyourself article in your entry into @pifc's Curation Contest:Week 42. I have been busy exploring , reading and following and upvoting the other entrants. Now I need to spend more time reading and understanding #payitforward and also #steambasicincome so much to learn! Also I will check out voting for @blockbrothers as Witness. Thanks ever so much for the support and exposure!
Hope all is good with you guys!
Mark aka @photographyguy

I started @pifc and also @minnowbuilder (Minnow Builder Program). Noticed that you used a lot of paid votes on your posts so far. Something to consider for a long term daily vote take a look at @minnowbuilder. While it doesn't have the instant bang there is zero risk of loosing money on the votes. As a huge bonus you own your shares along with your percentage of account growth and maybe most importantly we support up to 10 steemians per account who don't have 500sp yet with free daily upvotes. So share ownership is also giving back at the same time. Best win-win on steemit IMO. If you have any questions just let me know.

As for witnesses @blockbrothers is a great team witness account, that is it's made up of multiple steemians with different talents. Great group of people who care about the future of steem.

Hi @thedarkhorse

Thanks for reaching out to me.

I am super impressed with what you are doing, and I would like to participate. I have just purchased 20 shares for myself I will likely be interested in buying more, but I may have to wait until the next round. I will also keep an eye out for PIFC nominees going forward.

One question I do have is I would also like to buy 10 more shares to give away 5 each to two separate winners in a upcoming competition/giveaway, is it possible to transfer the shares once bought if so I will buy the other ten now, before the round closes.

I am also going to give away some Steem Basic Income shares @steembasicincome too in a competition so not sure which way around I am going to do them just yet or the timing.

I am thinking the competition will be for Photographers, with under 100 or 200 SP (?) and under 60 influence that have regular posts, and who submit a photo, I am just writing it and planning it out now.

Idea is to highlight both the winners and the two programs (in two separate competitions) i.e MinnowBuilder (and PIFC) and Steem Basic Income and of course I hope to encourage more people to follow along to what I am doing too.

Having looked a little into @blockbrothers , I am impressed and so I have voted for them.

Keep up the good work and thank you again for reaching out.


Mark, aka @photographyguy

ps please do let me know if I can purchase the shares now and transfer them to competition winners at later date.

So I will likely close the first MB account to share sales once this round ends until we get @minnowbuilder3 up to 1000 sp owned. This is just my number and no real reason to the goal, but it's what I wanted to target. After MB3 we will open up MB4 and then MB5. More accounts I get opened up the more plankton we can support and that is important to me. While it's a nice profitable vote for those who buy shares it's also a great way to help build a more solid steemit with more growing smaller members.

As for buying shares and transferring them later, sure I'd be ok with that if you let me know in advance. Until the contest ends you would get the vote. Once you transfer them you have zero control and the winner will have full control of the shares. Just want to be clear on that part.

SBI is a great program and the person who runs it is someone I respect and enjoy chatting with. Very smart guy who has great plans for his program. Those shares do work great for giveaways as you also get a share in return. There are some key differences between our programs, but I feel both are solid.

Hi @thedarkhorse

Thank you for the reply and the details.

I have just bought another 10 shares for the competition giveaway, understood about the control of the shares after the competition, will let you know once I have the competition underway/have two winners.

Yes both of your programs are great for supporting Minnows... it is great for newbies like me who really want to try and make a go of making the best of being part of this community/blockchain.

The support you give and the work you are doing is much appreciated.

Thanks, Mark

Thanks friend for the Nice Words i appreciate it.

Hi Mark, you are very Welcome, and hard work in an introduce yourself blog deserves paying back. In the beginning its all so much info and Some things are a blur. Try to blog and in the beginning you are limited with your votes so choose wisely and ask questions we all were new one day in the past so willing to help. Your vote is highly appreciated, i wish you well and Will follow you Road here. I see other friends commenting to, thanks Guys, and maybe ifyou are interested join us on discord.
Gr. Britt

Very interesting choices, @brittandjosie! I had already voted for both but only now I had the time to review the posts. :-)
