September Better Than Fair to Middlin' Contest

in #contest5 years ago (edited)

I made this colorful subtitle with Word and Deep Dream Generator!

Hello All Good Steemians!

Welcome to my next Better Than Fair To Middlin’ contest! In keeping with the name, I will continue to post the contest during the middle of each month for an unknown, but decent stretch of time!

There Will Be Variety!

I like to keep things interesting, so the challenges and the prizes will be different each month.

Pay close attention to the rules to make sure you get a chance to win as many prizes as possible!

Why Better Than Fair to Middlin’?

In case you missed it in the first contest post; fair to middlin’ was a phrase my father loved to use!

Although you may find a few variations, the phrase originated as another quality category for crops in the U.S. Fair to middlin’ is a general and somewhat variable quality or grade between poor and excellent. Not the best and not exactly average either, but definitely good enough, or maybe just a bit better!

I Want Better!

If you are doing better than fair to middlin’, you’re definitely doing well, and that’s what I want for all my fellow Steemians. Let’s do better than fair to middlin’!

September Challenge - Open to all!

Grand Prize!

This month a Grand Prize will be awarded to each:

Thank you for making it easy to reward comments!

I was happy to sponsor your contest, and will probably do it again. You should have kept the Steem 'bounty' you sent me and put it in the prize pool! Do that next time! 😉

This time the bounty will be automatic! But I will check in with you on some of the prize ideas I have for the October contest! Thanks so much for your support!

I’ve heard the phrase ‘Fair to middlin’ many times and mainly when people are asked how they are doing.

This sounds like fun contest. I’m have to put my thinking cap on. 😊 👩‍🌾

I hope you will!

So happy to see this excellent entry!

I will skip this one. I have no favourite steemartist here. Those I liked left or stopped posting.
If I search by the tag I see porn and many things I would not call art and yes, I do understand why read good artists leave. Steemit is not the place for them same if it comes to writers.

Good luck with your contest.
A great day to all with love 💕

I am sad that you feel this way, because I still see many excellent visual artists on Steemit! Right off the top of my head, I know several artists and photographers and I love to see their posts!

That sounds like a great idea for all of us to try! 😁👍
