Minnow of The Week #1 Choosing Winners Will Be Hard, Need Your Help!

in contest •  2 years ago  (edited)

1,800 views and more than 180 entries, what? You peeps are awesome! Welcome to the Minnow of The Week Contest. Where we will be in search for Nemo, trying to find the best, but most undervalued minnows on Steemit. Those who really put in the efforts and dedication needed to be successful here.

Always remember that Steemit is not and will never be a get rich quick scheme, so don't fool yourself with false and unrealistic expectations. Hard work, dedication and a bit of luck is what it's needed to become successful here and it won't come over night. Put in the time and results shall be visible!

In honor of those who are doing exactly that but still fail to get recognition or support, I will host this contest weekly. I upvoted each and every one of your contributions except one that was complete plagiarism. Won't go into it now.

I spotted an issue and that is that I can't keep up with all entries and can't do this contest week to week like I was planning. I'm overwhelmed by the number of entries and need you to be patient as it will take me few days to a week to a week to carefully read all your entries and go through your blogs to see what you are up to, what you write about, etc.

While you wait until I do that, everyone who participated in the contest can vote for 1 other minnow

  • In order to vote make a comment with your entry in the contest, and the entry of another user that you want to vote for (you can't vote for yourself)
  • I will select 2 winners while the 3rd will be the one with the most votes
  • You got 7 days to vote as the winners will be announced in a week
  • In the mean time I would like to ask you to show some support for your fellow minnows and go through the #minnowoftheweek tag and upvote at least a couple of entries

Best of luck to everyone, see you in a week :)

The minnow I vote for is @jibspark. My post is available here.

His entry post is here. Me and him go back a few years and he is perhaps the friend that I feel closest to. He introduced me to steemit and I was almost immediately hooked.

The reason I believe he deserves to win is that all his posts come from the heart and the soul. The poetry is truly touching and makes you think.

His blog posts are insightful and valuable. He tells stories of his life in the past and the future.

Steemit has been a great help so far for him, but I truly think that he needs an extra push into the spotlight to really get going.

He is a prime example of what steemit can do for a person and I hope that he wins as he truly deserves it. My favourite post of his is this one.

I nominate: @byn https://steemit.com/minnowoftheweek/@byn/minnow-of-the-week-contest-this-is-me-in-a-nutshell-my-thoughts-on-steemit-thus-far

Her entry was engaging, her main graphic was awesome, and some of here goals and challenges related to steemit resonate with me.

I hope people can consider my nomination for @valerie15 and I made the post on who she is and why I nominated here in this [post])https://steemit.com/minnowoftheweek/@maverickinvictus/minnow-of-the-week-1-or-who-is-valerie15-and-why-should-you-care)

Hope i get your support for her.

Indeed @valeri15 deserves our nomination. My vote also goes to @valerie. Indeed she is a very talented woman. All of her works are very impressive, it really captures the heart of the audience. She is really an amazing woman. I hope @runicar will also consider @valarie15. Thank you.🤗☺️

My post and the post that my vote goes to.

My vote goes to @axynos because he is one of the most sincere and supportive people I have ever met. There are a lot of things that could demoralize him from doing every-day things, but that will most definitely not stop him. He puts sweat and tears into his posts (we all joke about it in our little Estonian Steemit community). He posted this post some time ago, which, in my opinion, would've definitely needed more recognition by people, but sadly did not get it. I feel like he deserves to win and although he might not, he will emerge as a winner to me.


My post.

My vote goes to @axynos . His post.

this is my entry to @runicar contest

So after going through a few posts I realised that there are really amazing people out there with little to no recognition.... So I'm just going to drop a post i like and not my own post...


You're so kind :) I thank you so much for this. I hope you get successful in your future blogs. This surely means a lot to me.

You're welcome, kababayan @urielactub I wish you success as well.
