Pay it Forward Entry - Week 50

in #curation2 years ago (edited)

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

Phew... taking some time out from writing Glossary submissions for Binance to feature some new and upcoming authors for @pifc! As always, this is a fun part of the week, and is a really nice way to end every Tuesday! This week, I've managed to stumble across some really nice new authors, of which I will feature two today... and add the others to my rainy day list of authors to feature later. After all, there are weeks where I don't find anyone that I would like to feature!

... but before I dive into the meat of the post... updated template (check), Title (check), tags (check), banner image (check)... okay! I think I'm ready to go!


@deeanndmathews (REP 49) is a newcomer to the Steem chain, and I've found her music via the curation for @classical-radio. There is some very nice piano playing in there, and this featured post is the beginning of her compositional journey to create an accompaniment for "Deep River". Enjoy listening to a composition begin to take shape!

Comics and Doodles

The danger in keeping a list of potential featured bloggers is that from week to week, someone might suddenly pop up over the REP 55 limit for @pifc. @dinglehopper (REP 55) was just one of these bloggers.... If you like doodles and cartoons, then this is a great blog for you. As a self described Doodletrendista, @dinglehopper draws cute little doodles and digital sketches.

In this featured post he has turned his talents to the Pinky and Spiky characters for the contest by @organduo and @laputis. Enjoy this light hearted post and blog to bring some sunshine into your day!

Thank you for your entry. Both of your bloggers have been upvoted and your entry for Curation Contest:Week 50 is confirmed.

Thanks, I will fix that!

See, even if I think I've done everything! I still manage to screw up something!

Thanks for supporting them!

Thanks as always for supporting the features!

Thank you for the entry @bengy! Glad you were able to find a couple of good ones this week too :) I enjoyed and supported them both.

Thanks for supporting them! I hope you meant that finding two good ones wasn't the exception...

All okay over there? Haven't heard from you for a while...

I hope you meant that finding two good ones wasn't the exception...

haha I had to go back and see what I wrote :) Certainly not.

Things are ok here, I haven't been posting (obviously) because I just decided to spend whatever time I can with Brian. He's going downhill unfortunately, but still manages a few hours of good energy every day. I figure steemit will always be here (hopefully!!) :)

Best wishes for the coming days and months! Steem will still be here... mostly, I guess!

DAMNIT! I forgot the horizontal rulers....

Good morning (here) @bengy. As a suggestion, if you want to take a look at using @steempeak for your posting, one great feature is its support of templates. Then, for @pifc weekly contest posting, or whatever, you can then create a new post using that particular template.

As needed or desired, then you can "tweak" the template, so it always available as a starting point, for the next time. That is what I have done and I find it very helpful in eliminating things I might otherwise forget. As well as saving me precious time and keeping my posts somewhat consistent.

Thanks! I've actually been using Steempeak (and it's templates) for nearly half a year now or something like that! It isn't a problem if templating... It's more a problem if me!

PS, I tend to post the @pifc posts from a WordPress blog... Most of my other posts are created in Steempeak.

Sure, looks like you are already "on it" @bengy. Nice to see you use WordPress. I have read good things about it. At some point, I need to take the time to understand it better.

Do you find WordPress gives you more formatting control over the "finished product" of your Steem posts? Does it require anything special to use? Do you have to pay for it?
