Enter the Hobby Hub Challenge Week #3 And Win SBD!! PLUS ***Winner Announcement***

Just launched! HOBBY HUB CHALLENGE! #3

WE want to know what YOU do in your spare time! Write an awesome post about your hobby or the recreational activities that you love doing, then submit your post here on Steemit using HobbyHub as your first tag and…stand a chance of winning SBD. Easy, right? Get writing!

Each Monday a new Hobby Hub challenge will be announced, as well as the winner of the previous week’s challenge – to add to the excitement! I will also list or direct you to the participating entries, so that you can curate some original and quality posts.

Each week I am assisted by a guest judge, who helps me make a decision on who to select as a winner. This week @what-did-she-say stood in as a judge! She read every post carefully and upvoted along the way. Please pop on over to her blog to show some love!

Winner Of the Hobby Challenge Week #2 is ... 

@steemit-foodie for her entry: Hobby Hub Challenge Week #2 - My L.O.V.E. for Coffee Bean Art \(^_^)/

Congratulations on your win! We just loved all the photos you included of your work and are very impressed! You also taught many of us something new: How to make a lazy stitch. Thanks for that!

@steemit-foodie was given a rounded off prize of 10 SBD!!!!

Like a said, the posts were all VERY good and it was extremely difficult to choose only one winner. Please support the other participants by popping over to their HobbyHub posts and give them an upvote and a resteem. Here they are for your viewing:

upvoted, resteemed and following already... now I will give it some thought on what of all the things I do all day could be called my hobby and leisure time, haha - once I found it, you'll get my entry!!! Thank you for this sweetpea contest! Cheers from the Seven Mountains in Germany


Can't wait to see what it is! Thanks for the support!


when I started writing on my last post, I thought this would be for the hobbyhub... but in the end, it turned out I forgot about aligning to and mentioning any of the links to be in it... hmmmpf... I just pressed post... so I leave it up to you as a judge, to take it in... maybe I can edit it up to the needs - and maybe it does not even fit - you tell me!


It definitely fit as a hobby. Great what you are doing, very valuable as it has to do with your family heritage. It is only that you did not use the hobbyhub as your first tag.


I know - I had just hit the post button and then I remembered - I will remember next time!!! :-) Thank you so much for reading it! Means a lot to me - and I will make sure to have a perfect one to enter the hobbyhub this week!!!


Looking forward to your entry @jkiw!
