CONTEST - THANK YOU ECONOMY WEEK 4 | 4+ SBI SHARES

The Thank You Economy - Week 4


Back for another Week of Heart Felt Thankfulness and 4+ SBI Shares 

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. We gave away 6 shares of SBI and the engagement level was great, with 95 total comments and 13 entries.  I was also introduced to the Punday Monday Contest that @improv hosts, it's definitely a lot of Pun. (yes that was extremely corny but I just couldn't resist.)

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 @dollarsandsense one of our winners from last week who want's to Pay It Forward by sponsoring 1 share of SBI  and to @freedomshift from the Curation Circle Creed (#ccc) for sponsoring 1 share 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, 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 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

  • Two commenters 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 (4 total shares).  
  • 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.  
  • Bonus Round: Another 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.

    Just Incase You Don't Know What SBI Is.

    In the interest of saving space you can learn more by visiting @steembasicincome.  It is a pretty cool project with several people working on it. Tthe brains behind the operation and main sponsor is @josephsavage #steembasicincome  

    AND NOW A WORD FROM OUR SPONSORS......

    (I love it I sound like a tv host)

    @dollarsandsense   - The Pay It Forward Contest @pifc

     What is the Pay It Forward Curation Contest?

    The Curation Contest is here to allow Community Minded Steemians the opportunity feature 2 great blog posts written by Level 55 and below Steemians.  The contes gives the #payitforward group an opportunity to support lower level accounts by upvoting and curating their posts and higher level accounts can earn several different prizes, including SBI and sometimes @steemmonsters cards.... by participating in the contest.

    The @pifc contest and community is spearheaded by @thedarkhorse who genuinely loves to help and provides a massive amount of support to a lot of users.  So head on over and check out their latest post Week 20 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest  and give them and some of the featured bloggers some support. Besure to tell them The Thank You Economy sent you....

I want to thank @moneyguruu
Actually, I came here because of his videos. I remember he made a video about it and shared his views on this site. Then I thought I should join it. As I waste too much time scrolling down the facebook page, instead I should utilize my time in much good manner. I may not earn through it but at least I can improve my English, my writing skills and my way of conveying ideas to others. then after almost 20 days, I was tired of it because no one was reading my blogs and I got a little depressed because I put a lot of time in my articles.
Then there comes his other video about steemit and that worked like magic for me because that video motivated me. Then I stopped thinking about quitting.

·

@numanbutt, that's an awesome pick and a great story. He seems very motivational. Hey here's a post from a friend of mine, Small Fish Games
It's something you might check out, and tell a bit of your story in the comments, he'll love the story.

This week I would like to thank @papa-pepper! He is the user that showed me that silliness and games was the way to go on this site, and that even if we have to get serious sometimes, the silliness and games should go on!

Compassion laced with humor, goofy styled gardening, sassy sustainability and positive permaculture, @papa-pepper hosts creative contests while being an open and honest person on the blockchain.

Cheers!

·

Awesome choice. He is one of my favorites on steemit and has given me a good bit of support.

Nice contest! 👍

·

Thanks, Do you want to give a shout out to anyone?
I just now saw your contest, I guess I should go check out the other dynamic posts and give them some support.

·
·

Lol im good 😂👍

@dollarsandsense and @coinsandchains Thank you for giving a little promotion for PIFC.

·

My pleasure, thank you guys for you awesome initiative, you are helping a lot of people.

·

Maybe you are doing it wrong.... Has anyone upvoted your post, or restreemed your posts. They have a saying around here come for the crypto and stay for the community. When people see that you are here just for the money, they are not as likely to engage with you. When I started engaging with others and actually building community my account took off, I realized it wasn't about the money it's the community that makes Steemit strong.

ok bro thanks for good advice

My thanks goes out to @bozz who welcomed me to Steemit not so long ago. He helped me find a new home on a couple of discord channels that welcomed me with open arms and has helped me tremendously with letting me know what types of challenges I can participate in until I can find my niche.

He is also the first person to give me my first SBI share. He is very knowledgeable and has a great positive energy about him. I know that if I ever have a question, he will do his best to help answer it for me or help me find the answer.

·

Thank you for the mention. I was helped by so many others like @goldendawne and @aschatria, it is the least I can do. I have been kind of off grid the past couple of weeks camping in the great wide North, but I hope to dig in and get more active again in the coming months. You have great potential and a significant future ahead of you on Steemit. I am more than happy to support it.

·
·

Well my friend, those are some great steemians to associate with. If you don't mind I'm going to consider this an entry. We'll say @goldendawne, she makes quite an impact around here. I saw the waterfall pics they were georgious.

·
·
·

Thank you!

·
·
·

Thank you both for mentioning me!!!
@bozz - one day us Michiganders will have to meet up!
@coinsandchains - thank you for all your kind words!!

·
·
·
·

Oh no, too many yankees in here.... lol, I'm just kidding.

·

That's awesome, it looks like you both share a love for music. That's one of my passions as well, I just can't find the time to do everything on steemit. It looks like you are finding a niche in some of the photo and musical groups here on steemit.

·
·

Yes, but I would love to be able to finish an article I've been working on for well over a week. It's actually been going on maybe two or more weeks now. I have severe writer's block and doing some of these challenges helps me write a little on it every day! Thank you so much for this competition because I've also had help from someone else on here but I was not sure if I could also nominate him as well or save it for next week.

·
·
·

You can save it for next week if you want. I know the feeling, it took me a week and a half to write the post on Goldenseal, between finding the time and strolling down memory lane too much.

·
·
·
·

Thank you! I will keep that in mind and do the Thank you to him next week! I appreciate you doing this contest! It is amazing the great people you find on here willing to help others out!

Awesome contest ... who shall I pick this week. So many Steemians I could choose but this week I will go with @steven-patrick. He post some great nature photos and gives detailed explanation of the pictures he takes. I have learned that allot of flowers are edible through his blog post so if I ever get stranded in the wilderness at least I won't starve.

·

Great pick and he has some great pics. Did you ever figure out how to pull off the dice game contest?
I've been rather busy and haven't been hitting all the contests like I used to, what's your hot contest right now?

·
·

Yeah I got some tips from another Steemian. I will likely go ahead with it at some point but my post for the next few days are already all decided.

I got a few games / contest running as I usually do. Crazy Comment Contest was just posted a few hours ago and Steem-Ship 9 ( $30 + In Prizes ) is active as well.

I would also like to thank @zorank who proposed one of my posts in #pifc. I really appreciate the acknowledgment and support.

That is a great choice and I love the posts you have been doing as well, really great content and style. The beach is one of my favorite places.

Hello there! I'd like to thank @viking-ventures, who featured me in one of her first entries in the Pay It Forward Contest currently hosted by @pifc.

That was the kick-start that helped me getting my reputation from -7 back to positive values.

·

Awesome Choice @trincowski I see them and you for that matter, all over the place. I've also peaked through some of the stories, but just can't find the time to sit down and read, It's been over 2 months since I actually read a book. Well, not counting audible...

·
·

Thanks.
Yeah, I'm just as guilty about not reading so much. I'm working on changing that - by parking books and magazines in the bathroom. It's a small amount anyway - and sometimes a really good book will make me take it out of the bathroom for awhile too!

I do hope you get a chance to look at mine. I've had so much fun writing them, and am still working hard to write enough material to continue with a chapter a day, 6 days a week for you. (I'm almost 2 months ahead at the moment, thankfully - which may allow for a trip to the coast to see family, go mushrooming and stock up on seafood!)

·
·
·

Well, everyone needs a break occasionally,
Ok residual question from the other thread, what is Asapers?

·
·
·
·

Asapers is a Discord group with a profile page here as well. We encourage mutual support of people's posts and feature three undervalued bloggers (from our followers) in our rather irregular magazine. The proceeds from that magazine are shared with the bloggers and the curator who put together that issue.

·
·
·
·
·

Sounds, pretty cool. I wish I could write great posts, but that's one of the reasons I'm here, to get better at content creation.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Practice, practice, practice. :-)
Oh, and always write about things that are of interest/importance to you - because the interest comes through. I love writing about people and the way they interact with one another in relationships - hence, romance is a strong part of my fiction. Yet, I also have a very strong Jedi side to me, and that also defines a very large part of my fiction.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I don't typically read romance, I have read a few though. My sister-in-law has a few published, so I felt obligated to read them. https://www.kristiannhunter.com/bookshelf I actually told her and my brother that they needed to get on steemit, but nothing yet.
Sifi I read a lot, lately, I've been enjoying Brandon Sanderson.

·

Thank you!
Actually you didn't have that (cough) problem until after I featured you - and as there were two of you those first weeks to run into whale trouble, I started to worry that we were being jinxed or something. So, I prefaced my next entry with: "do not pick on the whales" or something to that effect. It hasn't happened again, thankfully (even though both of you have had some residual whale issues since then.)
I do think it's cool that I'm still in contact with both of you as well.
I'm just so glad to see how well you've done since then!

·
·

Yes, despite the Steem price keep falling from a cliff, eehehehhe!

·
·
·

Totally! But hey, we make the most of it, get our SP as high as we can manage it and wait for it to go back. I was looking at the 12 month graph today, Bitcoin did this last year too before it spiked in Nov/Dec. And Bitcoin is higher now than it was 12 months ago, so I'm guessing it's going to recover and set new records later this year. We'll go up along with it.

·
·
·
·

I'm thinking about betting on MCO, too. It seems to be a great entry point, both in FIAT and in BTC.

First of all I want to thank you sir for hosting this contest again!

I also want to give my gratitude to @steem-untalented for all the support that you have been giving me these past few days.

Good luck to everybody joining this competition!

·

LOL, I'm going to have to dig into that one further. I pretty much fall into the #untalented group on here. I think the @steem-untalented is done by @surpassinggoogle but I may be wrong. It looks like a cool initiative though.

Thanks my friend, who every sent the nanobot.

Cool contest and thanks to @trincowski for bringing my attention to this one.

I'm going to thank @lynncoyle1 (again) for bringing me onto Discord and into the Asapers group in particular. That one move has made a world of difference to me on Steemit. The plankton that I was at that time, I needed the helping hand just to get moving a bit better.

It was shortly after that point that I started posting my stories and got my first @curie reward - I'm on four now. :-D

I'm also now curating for Asapers as well!

All because someone like Lynn took the time to read one of my posts and invite me to Discord. That's where it all really began for me.

·

❤️ That is an amazing story, exactly what the Thank You Economy is all about. @lynncoyle1 is a great one, I see her all over the place, and think she just broke the 500SP mark in the Redfish league.

·
·

Aww thank you @coinsandchains! Such kind words; I really appreciate it :)

Yes! I did just hit that milestone and "made the wall" in @paulag's League :)

·

Thank you so much @viking-ventures! I'm so glad that I took the time that day to do just that! You have been such a welcome addition to @asapers, and of course to our @pifc contest too :)

Your post has been resteemed. Thank you for using my resteem service

First of all, yay that you're punning with us now. Second of all, I'd like to suggest that @littlescribe, who has been supportive and excited for what I'm doing, deserves my thanking nomination! She's a tremendous part of the steem community in general, but also in my little slice of it, I feel like we have a solid personal relationship born out of nothing but an admiration for each others' virtual personalities (who knows if they're real personalities or not!?! WHAT IS REALITY?)

·

LOL, I love punny stuff. So in reality you have a virtually real relationship, which may or may not be a real reality. I'm sure those are going to be more popular as the VR stuff takes off.
I think that's a great choice, @littlescribe appears to have a load of fun while helping other users. Looks like she really likes steem monsters cards, I just can tell if she likes them or @nathankaye AND @darrenclaxton more.... lol

·
·

Ha ha! She could never choose between us! So she'll have to take us both. Double pirate pleasure for sure! Ooo are me hearty!

·
·
·

lol, You guys are going to have to do a double mint gum commercial for her....
