From the creator:

What is Punday?
Punday is the best day. It's the day we post a topic upon which you are invited to pun in the comments for a chance at SBI shares. You get to read all the incredible puns, and you can try your hand at puns, and you can just bask in the warmth and love that punsters offer. I am your Puntender, and I serve hot puncakes with Mapun Syrpun.

Loyal Reader Rewards

o1AJ9qDyyJNSpZWhUgGYc3MngFqoAN4beZquteaUfaJkTEkzi.jpeg

A.E. Jackson writes short stories, interactive fiction, and informative articles which are published on Steemit.com. As a new writer, it is important to build a loyal following, and get feedback from readers. The Loyal Reader Rewards Contest was created with those goals in mind.

Loyal Readers can earn entries into a Steemit Basic Income random draw each week by reading posts, and following the directions to enter. The entry form requires more information than many Steemians are comfortable with providing, so enter at your own discretion.

NOTE: Contest images used with permission from their owners.

How to get on the recurring contest list
Do you run a regular contest that you’d like to see in our recurring contest section? We have some simple criteria you need to have to be included:

SBI units must be part of the prizes given out.
Contest needs to be running 5 weeks or 10 contests on a consistent schedule, whichever comes first.
Meet Contest King’s no upvote, no resteem, and no follow conditions.
If you think your contest qualifies let us know in the comments or on our Discord channel and we’ll check it out.

Enrollment
If you want to get involved, or to increase the basic income that you receive, enrollment is pretty straightforward:

Just send 1 STEEM to @steembasicincome. Include the name of a Steemian to sponsor in the transaction memo (preceded by @). You and the person you sponsor will each receive 1 unit in the program. You can sponsor any active Steemian, it does not have to be a current member.

If you're unclear, please check out our full transaction memo guidelines and then let us know if you have any questions.
https://steemit.com/busy/@steembasicincome/transaction-memo-guidelines

The official currency for enrollment is STEEM. If we choose to accept SBD without refunding it, you do not receive extra value for it.

Enrollments are processed automatically every 144 minutes. Confirmation transactions are still manual and typically are sent within 2-3 days. Even if you have not received a welcome transaction, you can check your status using !sbi status.

Writer Bio
This Contest listing was prepared for us by @ntowl!
