Pay It Forward Entry - Week 22

in #curation3 years ago (edited)

This is my submission for the Pay it forward Curation contest run by @thedarkhorse and @pifc.

Back on the road again... well, more like train tracks and airports! Which means, there is more time for Steemit and writing posts and doing the engagement thing! Hopefully, if hotel internet is not too crappy!

Anyway, I have two bloggers ready to go tonight, so not too much searching. Just the write up and then the posting... which I'm happy about, as it has been a long day of travel and I just want to sleep now!


After featuring @ivan-g a while back, I was surprised to notice that there is a community of origami enthusiasts on Steemit! Lots of really nice origami artwork and how-to videos and all sorts of papery goodness! My oldest daughter is really into origami, so it's been nice to show her some of this stuff!

Anyway, @gmatthe2 (REP 44) is an origami enthusiast, who appears to also be Australian, so two positives already! But as an added bonus, she (?) seems to be quite active as well, but like many smaller accounts, still struggling to get traction.

This is her last post (which unfortunately is 4 days past, but they are still active, so probably another post will be coming soon!, which is about making a Reversible Origami Shallow Bowl with Secret Compartment.


@snow.owl (REP 49) is a composer/bassist who is living in Vienna. He is someone that I have come across during my travels with the @classical-radio community account. He posts interesting posts about music, both his own and that of other people.

This particular post, titled Oración (Prayer) caught my eye (ears...), as it was a composition for violin... which I am somewhat familiar with! For someone who doesn't play violin, it is a great composition (actually, it is a good composition, without qualifier!)... perhaps a bit more modern in musical language than I am normally familiar with, but then this is from a guy who thinks anything after 1800 is pretty modern in the music world!

You and and me both have a pretty long record in the contest, already! ;-)

Yes, it is strange! It doesn't feel like a long me until you think about the months!

As always you found some good featured posts. Thanks for your entry.

No problem! Thanks as always for the chance to find and feature people!

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Thank you for the entry @bengy; both great choices! The origami with a secret compartment ... how cool is that?! And I really liked the music one too :)

I had to laugh at this:

but then this is from a guy who thinks anything after 1800 is pretty modern in the music world!

Heh, sad but true...

Hola @bengy visite tus dos blogger, muy buenos te felicito, cariños y besos.

Thank you for supporting them!

I love your review hahahaha! Thank you!!! anything after 1800, that cracked me up :-D

Ha ha, Yes... But unfortunately true!

Hi @bengy my first name is Grace so you guessed right :) Thank you for featuring me in your payitforward contest. Any particular origami that your daughter is interested in? I have more variations on this bowl including a deeper vase version, a spiky paper chain, Ninja bunny finger puppet, quite a few modular ideas, napkin holders and stackable boxes.
I am also open to suggestions.

No problem! It was nice to discover the origami community!

My daughter is just doing simple stuff at the moment (she is 6), but somehow she manages to follow the instructions and fold much more neatly than I do...

Excellent entry, as always! I have upvoted/commented each of your two bloggers. Actually, I was already following snowowl as he recently followed me and I felt the need to check him out.

Oh, you keep track of follows? Too complicated for me... I haven't tried to do that!

Thanks for supporting them!

No, I don't keep track of them too much - I just remember him adding me (I let steemworld send me notifications) and checked him out.

I visited and supported both of your featured authors. The first one is already passed payout so I just went on checking one of her other posts and that is what I supported. The first article made me busy with origami after all. I guess I got a #ulog post for today. 😃

Ha ha, good that you enjoyed the origami post!

I did! Just like with ivan-g's post before. 😃

good stuff I have visited and upvoted both both post.

Thank you for the support!
