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.
Nice week of deadposts! A variety of topics and nice engagement. Things should be looking up here in the future! The regulars all did so well that I decided to give a flat payout to all the winners this week so that the reward pool could be spread around a bit. They all deserved it!
Last Week's Winners
@fjmb86 - $3 Steem prize
How many weeks has @fjmb86 been on this list? No problem, each of these posts deserved it. This week we have an inspiring piece on how to overcome fear. This would have saved me a lot of time if I read it as a kid.
@artofwisdom - $3 Steem prize
More mushrooms! @artofwisdom seems to be our local steemit expert on mushrooms, it's quite cool to have one. This one is really funky looking and apparently edible.
@whitelightxpress - $3 Steem prize
This is a topic that has done very well here at the deadpost contest. @whitelightxpress considers the importance of pulling your eyes away from the cell phone. I love it.
@jodekss - $3 Steem prize
An introduction post with $0.00 payout!? Don't you hate that? And this was a good one too. Glad it was brought to our attention so @jodekss could finally get some readers and payout on it!
@paradigm42 - $3 Steem prize
I feel it's been a while since we saw @paradigm42 make a contribution, sharing a very special place to get away from it all.
