The Thank You Economy - Week 3
Back for another Week of Awesomeness
The Thank You Economy has turned into a fun project I'm meeting tons of new people, finding new communities and awesome ways to participate and connect with other Steem users. Last weeks contest was totally awesome with 100 total comments. I was also introduced to @crosheille and #NeedleworkMonday, you know the world has come full circle when you have an old fashioned Knitting Circle or Quilting Bee hosted on a blockchain
I just want to thank everyone again who has been participating. Also be on the lookout, a couple people have said they are going to be doing their own version of The Thank You Economy. This week we have a couple sponsors and a couple twists to include in the contest. So a huge thank you goes out to @ecoinstant for sponsoring 2 shares and to @freedomshift from the Curation Circle Creed (#ccc) for sponsoring one and maybe more.
What is The Thank You Economy contest all about?
An Attitude of Gratitude - The Thank You Economy is simply a way to say thank you to someone who has helped you, influenced you or blessed you in some way in the Steem community. It can be tough getting started on Steemit, and the people who have been here for a while realize that. After all they were new at one time as well. What I realized about the Steemit community was there are people helping us new guys all over the place, but what can we really do to show our appreciation back? Not much....
When you are new about all you can do is say "Thank You," maybe give a post a resteem to the 100 followers who are not bots, and a small dust vote. Those things can add up especially if they have a lot of followers. That's where the idea for the Thank You Economy contest arose from I wanted to do more to say thank you.
Maybe I can do more. It might help to give them a little added exposure in a contest and possibly a share of Steem Basic Income, which will pay them over and over as long as they are posting content. I thought there might be other who wanted to do the same, not to mention it's fun.
Just saying thank you to someone opens up all kinds of opportunities to interact with each other. YOU CAN THANK ANYONE, anyone who has helped you and made a difference in your life, you could even thank @ned for helping develop the steemit platform, now if he won it would probably be a waste of a good SBI share, because he usually declines payment for his posts.
LET'S HAVE SOME FUN
On to the Contest Rules - read carefully there are additional twists this week.
The Base Contest - We'll keep this simple.
- Leave a comment on this post.
- In the comment tag someone who has helped you or influenced you the most on Steemit use the @coinsandchains format.
- Then briefly tell us why you chose them.
That's all you have to do. (upvotes, restreems and follows are appreciated though)
One thing, please do not tag bots or alt accounts.
The Prizes and Winner Selection: Here's where some twists happen
- One comment will be randomly selected by the amazing prize wheel I found. The account making the comment and the account tagged in the comment will receive one SBI share each.
- I will also give an upvote to each valid entry, but that does not amount to much. Upvote your own comment if you would like, or if you have a @dustsweeper account it might help.
- @ecoinstant will also select the most interesting or heart-felt or well thought out or most engaging, thank you note for one SBI share to a recommender and a recommended .
Bonus Round: Another twist and chance to win SBI
@freedomshift has generously added a participation bonus, one SBI share for 6 entries that qualify.
@freedomshift: To encourage people to join #ccc, I'll offer additional SBI shares for those who enter the contest or other contests in #ccc based on 1 SBI for every 6 valid entries (200+ words, use of #ccc, reference to the creed).
Here's what you need to do to Qualify:
- Create a post for your entry, 200+ words following the #ccc guidelines found here
- Be sure to use #ccc as one of your tags and include the reference to the #ccc
- Please include a link back to this contest as well.
- Comment on this post with the name of the person you want to thank and a link to your post
- This comment/post will count as your entry into the main contest also.
This is an awesome bonus, and it adds a chance for you to earn a little on your post as well. Thank you @freedomshift for doing this.

#ccc stands for Curation Circle Creed.
The "Curation Circle Creed", the "honor code":
I will post original contents of original writing.
I will clearly and properly source references, text and other media, abiding by copyrights.
I will respect other people's opinion, nationality, religious belief, language, and culture.
I will abide by rules laid out in the FAQ and generally accepted by the community.
