The Thank You Economy - Week 7 with 10+ SBI Shares
Yes that's 10 Shares!!!
It's That Time Again!
Time For Your Weekly Dose Of Heart Felt Thankfulness
The Thank You Economy has turned into a fun project and every week I'm meeting new people, finding new communities and awesome ways to participate and connect with other Steem users. Last weeks contest was great. We will be giving away at least 6 shares of SBI and the engagement level was amazing, with over 115 total comments and 8 entries. We've got some pretty cool stuff going on this week.
I just want to Thank Everyone again who has been participating, and resteeming the posts. This week we have a couple sponsors and additions to the contest. So a huge thank you goes out to @paulag and her awesome Redfish Power UP League for 1 SBI, @cicisaja representing her favorite #PayItForward crew at @pifc for 1 SBI, @freedomshift from the Curation Circle Creed (#ccc) for 1 SBI (maybe more) and @simplegame bringing us some awesome fun on the blockchain with a whopping 5 SBI shares!!!!!
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 others 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
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
4 ENTRIES WILL WIN THIS WEEK!!!! That's pretty good odds.....
- Three 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 am going to ask the lovely @cicisaja to help me out and select the most interesting or heartfelt or well thought out or most engaging, thank you note for one SBI share to a recommender and a recommended.
- 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.
