What is the Deadpost Intitiative?
The Deadpost Initiative is an attempt to give love to some posts that were overlooked during their short 7 day life span, a chance to bring your old posts back to life and maybe make some friends in the process. The goal is not only to share some love with SBD but also by engagement to generate discussion.
So many great posts this week! I try to use engagement as the number one tool for judging who wins, that way I don't need to use my own opinion much when deciding. Good thing too, I wouldn't be able to decide. In order to have a more balanced and fair contest, I urge you all to come back two days after posting your deadpost to see what kind of posts there are to upvote. I honestly don't mind if you vote for more than 2-3 posts, but remember, so come back a few times!
##Last Week's Winners
@audreybits - $5 SBD prize
This should be common sense, but it is common sense that most people are lacking! Many of us talk much better than we listen. @audreybits shares some tips on how to be a good listener.
@fjmb86 - $5 SBD prize
@fjmb86 is a deadpost machine....getting a ton of votes and engagement every time. Very nice! This is a deep topic, what is art and what is culture? Books could be written about this, but @fjmb86 does a good job scratching the surface.
@acesontop - $2 SBD prize
This is important for anyone on steemit because we earn crypto. Should Bitcoin be a means of payment or an asset to invest in? @acesontop is another person who is really killing it with deadposts recently.
@dalz - $2 SBD prize
@dalz brings back the age old topic of power and shares the opinion that it should be shared rather than held by one person or group.
