Enter the Hobby Hub Challenge Week #2 And Win SBD!! PLUS ***Winner Announcement***

Just launched! HOBBY HUB CHALLENGE! #2 

Yes, we do live in a fast-paced world where time for our hobbies is often limited. But still need a pastime that keeps us in check and relatively sane. Here’s your opportunity to write about one of your favorite interests, something you enjoy doing in your spare time. Enter your hobby into the Hobby Hub challenge and…WIN!



The launch and first week of the Hobby Hub challenge, in my opinion, was a huge success! Every entry was outstanding, interesting and undoubtedly original. 

Winner Of the Hobby Challenge Week #1 is ...

@mother2chicks for her submission: Hobby Hub Challenge #1 Bone Collector: My Unorthodox Hobby

Congratulations on your winning entry! This is certainly an "unorthodox" hobby as you put it, but interestingly so! We loved how you shared some of your adventures with us while explaining how you came to be a bone collector and why you enjoy the "treasure" hunt. 

It was incredibly difficult choosing just one winner out of 11 AMAZING entries, but after much collaboration and uhming and ahing we finally came to s decision. If you are looking to do some curating, please visit the following posts submitted by #HobbyHub participants and show some support:

You have quite an unique hobby.

The last post i made i had to try to post 12 times before it finally got posted.
So i am kind of sceptical to start to write a long new post again, before i see that things are normal again.

But i will try to make a new post for hobbyhub about my second passion when things work normal again. :)


I am hoping all the hassles had to do with the new upgrade, and that things will now go back to normal. Would LOVE a new entry from you!


Hey there, one way I did was to click post and immediately open another tab on steemit and open up the post function. You will see that you have an exact duplicate of your post. If the circle doesn't stop spinning, refresh it. If the post was not successful, at the very least the extra tab will come in handy. I hope that's clear? Hope you get your post up =)

Hey there, thanks for organizing something like this. Here's my entry



My pleasure, upped and resteemed :)

Thanks for continuing the challenge, here is my entry for week 2:
