CLOSES: When this post shows 5 days old.


April 2018, I was told about the Steemit community by a course mate. At first, I was very skeptical about if my contents can actually pay within a short period of time as my friend told me. The first week, I made some few post. They were poems I wrote while I was still in secondary school. I received upvote from @yoo1900 who propelled me to a reputation above 35. And after 7 days, I made a transfer to my local bank account from my steem account. I was surprise that it actually worked. So my content can actually pay.

I decided to go to my archive and retrieved all contents I have written some time past. Though I am a computer engineer, I also love writing. But after @yoo1900 upvote, it was like my contents were no longer valuable. It was frustrating as my expectations were cut short. There were no much rewards coming from the content I post. As a new user on Steemit, you can attest to how it can be frustrating trying to earn something good from your content yet it seems your efforts are in vain. I almost thought of quitting since I don’t get much upvotes like I get from my Facebook post. I should have expected it not to be like Facebook. Money is involved here. Then I came across @originalworks post on trending posts. I checked out the content of the contest post @originalworks published. I knew very little about the blockchain techs. I downloaded the whitepaper of the tech that it contest was been anchored by @originalworks that day and surprisingly I made some few Steems.
Since then, I can say 50 percent of my earnings on Steemit are from the @originalworks contest and its subsidiaries. And I have also learnt a lot within the space of 4 months.


On this note, I want to formally appreciate the @originalworks and all its subsidiaries for putting up contests that has kept a lot of Steemit users active and also improving in knowledge of the blockchain technologies. I personally want to do this because I think they’ve saved a lot of young people out there from engaging in irrelevant activities to make some pocket money especially in Nigeria, West Africa (I see a lot of Nigerians participating in @originalworks contest). I may not know who is behind the @originalworks but he/she has done something worth emulating by other big whales on Steemit; to engage minnows and give them reasons to believe the best social media platform is the Steemit Community. I barely make post on my Facebook account because it seems I am wasting my data and time there. This shows that in the nearest future, Steemit community would be one of the top social media not only because of good contents shared but also it compensation for good contents and the fact that sooner or later world’s economies would be decentralized as numerous techs are invented on the blockchain. And those who are already aware of them would be on the better side because they will then be making some cool money and teaching people coming into the system.

I want to also thank the founder of the Steemit community, Nedd. I do not know where he got the idea from, but every good thing comes from God. There is a bright future for Steemit and we have to make the community a better place for those who would love to come and join us.

On behalf of the Steemit community, @originalworks and all good contents writers, I am presenting a little contest to encourage Old users and new users of the Steemit community especially those who always participate in @originalworks contest. This contest is about @originalworks and its subsidiaries. I am doing this to show them that I am grateful and I know that other users are also grateful for opportunities created weekly. In some countries the Steems won in @originalworks contest are like salaries earn and I know the rewards are saving some young people from becoming nuisances in the society. No young adult who knows he has to read a 57 pages whitepaper would be doing some other irrelevant or criminal activities. @originalworks has made many people want to learn, research and explore every week.

Now that the @originalworks would be having some upgrade this week and no writing contest, I want to invite all @originalworks, @mediaworks, @contestbot, @mediabot and @unprovoked followers to the Original review contest. Like I said, the contest is all about @originalworks and its subsidiaries. It is about how well you know these blogs and the content the post.

Thank you..

Excellent initiative, dear colleague. I completely agree with what you wrote about @originalworks in some ways has rescued many young people. And not only countries like Nigeria and the ones you named, but even Venezuela. Successes.


Thank you for your good comments.

English is not my mother tongue. I have tried to learn it, but so far it has been unsuccessful. So my technique when I want to participate in some activity, first I write in my language and then I use Google to translate. But everyone knows that Google does not always manage to interpret correctly and that is easily observed by someone whose language is English. However, I have dared to participate three times in @originalworks. I always come last, but I do not think I've wasted my time. For me it has been a learning opportunity, with each competition I learn many more of the technology and introduces me to concepts that otherwise would have remained in the dark.

I will not participate in your contest, but I take this opportunity to thank @originalworks. Hopefully the work they do will encourage others to continue the initiative.

Thanks @focygray

Good luck to the participants.


Thanks for your kind words.

Yo!!!!!!......Thumbs Up Bro!!

Interesting idea
Resteemed for better visibility


Thank you.

Wait for my entry, thanks for this contest!


You are welcome and i am glad you appreciate the @originalworks too.

Nice. Anything for fun is welcome. I'll read in detail in a bit. Cheers


I did not see your entry again bro...

wow. yeah its difficult isn't it. its hard to get one nice post to propel us into the atmosphere and then create a piece that takes a hour or two and get no likes or comments on it at all. giving back on steemit is just as important than receiving. you need to spend your time and effort posting, and uprooting your friends posts that mean something to you. if you put hard work into your posts and do care, ill deffinately follow you because if you took the time to type that you, you're worthy! and you put plenty of thought into it. i dont know much about originalworks but you're crushing it by yourself, just keep posting your stuff.



What do you mean by I am crushing it by myself?


by the stuff that you are curating by yourself. i looked back at your old posts and they are freaking good man. you put a lot of effort into your stuff, way more than other people do.


Oh... Now I understand. Thank you very much buddy. I am grateful for your kind words.

wow...it's great work.


Thank you very much.

Se ve interesante el concurso.


I have to translate for your sake:
Tengo que traducir por tu bien:
Yeah... Though no much rewards but I felt it will be nice to organized a contest to appreciate a blog that has gave so much to the steemit community.
Sí ... Aunque no hay muchas recompensas, pero sentí que sería bueno organizar un concurso para apreciar un blog que ha dado tanto a la comunidad steemit.

that's great!


Thank you very much

Thanks for participating Recieved

Thank you very much sir, I appreciate your work, I have submitted early this morning via gmail


recieved.. Thanks for participating

Thanks to everyone who supported this little means of appreciation to originalworks either by entering into the contest or comments and upvotes.

I will publish the few people who participated and award them accordingly. It will not be what was gotten from the post itself because it is too small to award you with.

Once again, thank you all.

Hey @focygray, I could not participate because the link did not accept my access. Is this over now? Or do I still have time?


Okay, I see it is closed. Next time maybe. :(


Yeah it is over. Thanks for the time.
