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. To do this you will write a single curation style blog post like this entry by @viking-ventures from week 16 which won a Judges Choice Award.

Contest Date Range

This contest run from Now until 08/04/18 at 11:59pm CST (USA, Chicago). The winners will be announced on Wednesday 08/08/18 at 12:01am

Week 18 Rules (No Changes)

For week 18 you will need a curation style entry that includes 2 High Quality Original Content Blog Posts from Steemians with a reputation score of 55 or under.

  • Curation Style Post of 2 Bloggers who are posting Quality Original Content
  • Link to 1 recent blog post per featured blogger. Keep in mind that many will follow this link and upvote so pick a post that isn't close to payout!
  • Include a link to this contest in your entry post
  • The 2 bloggers you curate need to be rank 55 or below
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how I track everything!

👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content. We want to see no less then 200 words of original written content. So a single photo is fine as long as there is 200 words with it. 200 words is about 12 lines of content. Posts from Parley and dmania are not acceptable.

Prizes: Steem Basic Income

This week at least 14 winners are going to get a sponsorship for #steembasicincome!

There will be 1 SBI Sponsorship per 8 entries into the contest on a random basis (minimum of 2). These SBI shares are currently purchased by @pifc.

There will be 4 Judges Choice Awards based the quality of the bloggers you feature in the eyes of our Judges, @tryskele , @lynncoyle1, @energyaddict22, & @wolfhart. Each Judges Choice will get 1 SBI share for winning from the Judge that picked them.

All 8 of the featured bloggers from the Judges Choice Winners posts will also get an SBI Share. These shares are purchase by the sponsors listed later in the post.

@steembasicincome is run by @josephsavage and is a great program designed to provide a lifetime income to members who have SBI Shares.

hahahaha this is hilarious @cicisaja. I can just see you running around trying to catch the pigeons :) Daydream my friend, you never know where life may take you!

Hahaha.. I used to pet many pigeons when I was a kid.. a little tricky traps would do😉 oh no.. I can learn from someone how to set up a trap... I need to look at Amara book😊

I usually upvote entries by newbies only, rep 45 or lower, but, I also upvote the first entry to pay it forward contest.

You are also invited to check out the benefits of using the #ccc tag.

All the best!

Thank you! I will try ccc in my next post.

You are in if you edit your post and replace one tag, contest curation steemit talent ...

Done, changed one tag on my pifc contest post to #ccc

Entry #16

Thanks for your choices. Loved the second one. The first one, not so much... But I've voted for both.

Thanks for showing support! Yeah, the first one in definitely not for everyone. :)

Once again I am so amazed at the effort put forth by the participants of the #payitforward contest. Nearly 5 months ago when @thedarkhorse discussed this "crazy" idea he had, I was skeptical, but supportive. I'm so encouraged by those of you that continue to dedicate your time and effort so support under-valued writers on Steemit. I thank you all. I wish you all continued success in your endeavors be it Steemit or whatever else you delve into. Congratulations on making this contest and project so successful.

It is amazing to see the popularity of this contest growing from week to week.

First of all; congrat @pifc, wish you all the best. I would love to support 2 shares for week 18.

Thanks so much, @el-nailul!

Entry #9

Here's my first ever entry to this contest! Finally been able to find some posts worth making an entry about haha.

Is 4 days too close to payout? It can still be voted on for a few more days. Haha.

https://steemit.com/payitforward/@artgirl/artgirl-s-1st-random-newbie-resteem-day-pay-it-forward-curation-8e4343ccf6664

Thanks for your entry, @artgirl!

You're welcome! I'll check on other entries too. 😁

All the best!

I guess I should aim for the first entry then. 😂

I look for reasons to welcome new members to pay it forward and to #ccc. You are a newbie - rep 45 or less - and is already on my list of special welcoming upvoting for pifc and #ccc.
My message about "first entry" is for new entries for those with higher rep than 45 - @artgirl (57) has rep higher than 45 and higher than 55 and I looked and found a way to welcome her to @pifc. Make sense?

😁

  ·  last year (edited)

Hmmm am still not aware of what #ccc is but thanks. 👍 Is that the C3 curator?

it's an initiative for newbies to help fellow newbies to grow the right way and maximize their dust votes.

You are invited to click the tag to see what is there and decide if you want to join us and help some newbies.

Alright then, thanks for the info. :)

Uh-umm... I thought I'd plant my heels and hit that first entry next time. Anyway, it's okay... 😀

"first entry" is of all time - not for just each contest-week.
As I explained, my memories sometimes fail me and since I am looking for ways to welcome new members and newbies all the time, who knew?

I also make exceptions on the good side or the up side. 😀

Then my entry should also be the first entry by the time I submitted it! 😜

Entry #11.

4 days works, but if you are making your entry in the first day or two they might miss some votes. But don't be afraid to use a great post that is closer to payout and then edit your post warning people it's past payout and give them another option to visit. Lots of options on how to handle this. Just don't pick a 5 or 6 day old post as there are times it takes a day just to get to your entry based on timing of when you post.

And happy you decided to join us! Hope to see more entries from you in the future.

Alright thanks. 👍

I am going to try to keep being a part of this. My Entry Hope you can all stop by their post and say hello.

So glad that you're still participate @stever82😉 will do my best to support them .. another few hours to get the full benefit of my dust vote!

Entry #3

It's very simple... but thanks for your entry, either way!

I am not sure I agree that is very simple. But your right it isn't very hard. But I want to bring people who are really doing good post.

I meant your entry is simple, when compared to the remaining entries.

I hope you don't mind me saying but I think you did the bare minimum on this post.

Your choices were good, though. And that's what matters the most.

I've just went through 6 of the 10 entries... and I've spent too much Voting Power for now.

@celinavisaez, @oclinton, @zorank & @bengy: You're not forgotten. I'll go through your entries tomorrow. 😉

Gracias amigo @trincowski, estare pendiente

Already done. Thanks for entering the contest.

Thank you for hitting all the posts!

Ahah. I went berserk. I won't be able to do this for longer, seeing how the number of entries keep rising! And I also won't be paying for delegation forever. It's part of my plan to reach 500 SP faster. Once I get there, I'll have to vote for half of the people, with double the % I do now! 😉

But until then, I'll keep upvoting like crazy! 😂

I like the crazy voting. Hope to be able to help those that vote like this more from my personal account going forward.

It's a killer on the voting power isn't it @trincowski? :)

Totally! 😂

Feels so weird, like moving in a new house. Exciting new beginnings @pifc , and I'm so glad to be a part of it all :)

hola muy interesante ...pero no entiendo mucho el concurso

The contest is to find 2 blog posts from level 55 or below bloggers that are very good, but aren't getting a lot of rewards. Then create your own post featuring those 2 bloggers and link to the posts.

Not sure if someone that speaks Spanish might be able to help here, know sometimes things get messed up with the translator software out there.

@pifc has set 2.000 SBD bounty on this post! logo_for-light-bg_1000.png
What is a bounty exactly?

A bounty is money sent to a post to be distributed to the users commenting on it. It provides a way to reward users directly and works in addition to the steem/sbd they receive from the blockchain. It works independently of SteemPower.

You create a bounty by sending any amount of sbd/steem to @steem-bounty together with a post-url in the memo.

How can I earn a bounty Users are then competing for the bounty by writing their answers to the post in comments that will achieve upvotes from the community and especially the bounty creator. The money of the bounty gets distributed to all top level comments of the post at the same time when the post is paid out (7 Days after it was written). How much everyone gets depends on the votes the comments received. The sender of the bounties votes are weighted higher so that she decideds where 80% of the bounty money goes and all other votes determine the rest.

@steem-bounty does all of this for you automatically. You can use this service to automatically pay out a challenge, ask a hard question or simply to reward the people that interact with you.

Read more about how it works, even in different languages here.

i have yet to put my hand on steemit blogs to identify the potential and quality writers. Yet, I am here to support the show with my little power but I am sure it add to the fund to reward those who deserves.
Cheers

@digitalmind what you may find helpful is to visit each entry this week and lend a little support to those who are featured. As you do this you will see who others thought worthy of featuring and get a feel for the contest. At the same time you will be doing exactly what I hope this contest will do which is support the featured bloggers and get them some much deserved rewards for their efforts.

What is quality is pretty subjective so as long as it's 200 words or longer of original content then we are good with it. Not trying to tell people what is quality, but each judge will pick their winner based on what they consider to be the entries with the 2 highest quality featured posts so there is an incentive to try for well written posts.

yes, that is the least I could do for now. But I shall submit my Pay It Forward post in next few days.
p.s. I wills tart to visit those featured post and send them some support with my little SP though
Cheers

Honestly any size vote along with a comment really is a good boost for them. Just show you read the post and let them know you liked it.
