Steemit "HomesteadingChallenge" #1 - Theme Announcement and Rules - SBD Reward for Winner!

Steemit HomesteadingChallenge


Welcome to the Steemit #homesteadingchallenge! The goal of this challenge is to unite the Steemit homesteading community with an invigorating contest every few weeks!

The #homesteadingchallenge will require a variety of different tasks and requests from anyone who wishes to participate. Examples of tasks include taking a photo of your livestock, answering a prompt question regarding homesteading, etc. Each challenge will have a different goal / theme so please read the announcement carefully.

What’s in it for you?

I plan to transfer ALL of the SBD reward the announcement articles earn to the winner of each challenge! The more support from each of you, the bigger the potential reward! One winner will be chosen for each challenge.


Anyone and everyone is welcome to join! Simply follow the guidelines in order to be eligible!

  • Follow the specific theme of each challenge - each challenge will require something different.
  • Use #homesteadingchallenge as one of your article’s tags.
  • Complete your submission by the deadline.
  • If you chose to participate, you give permission for your submission to be linked and referenced in the winning announcement article.

Steemit HomesteadingChallenge #1

Please write an article that answers the following question:

    “Homesteading is important to me because…”

Be as specific and honest as you can. Try to include the reason(s) you began homesteading and what you hope to achieve with this kind of lifestyle. Is there anyone in particular you are homesteading for? Was there a certain event that kickstarted your homesteading journey? What do you want your homestead to accomplish in the course of your life (and/or beyond)?

The winner will be chosen by a multitude of factors including how satisfactorily and honestly I believe they answered the question. It will not matter if your answer to the question above is “for fun” or “to change the world!” I just want to hear your story! So don’t hesitate to give it a shot!

You have ONE WEEK to write your submission for this challenge - please post it by 11:00PM on Wednesday, July 19th!

Don’t forget to include the #homesteadingchallenge tag in your article! This is how I will find the submissions! I will also try to comment on each submission to let you know that I have seen it and it has been entered into the running! If I do not comment on your submission within 24 hours, you may tag me (@kiaraantonoviche) in the comments!

Winner will be chosen the following day - Thursday, July 20th - and winnings will be paid immediately following this announcement post’s payout. An article announcing the winner with proof of the reward payment will be posted following the reward dispersement.

I’ll try my best to make this challenge (and future challenges) fun, inspirational, and most of all… worthy of your time!


G'day, Perfect timing for me to get motivated.
We've got 20 acres of virgin bush land in the Northern Territory of Australia.
For the last 8 years, we have been building a "Shed House" from scratch and totally off grid.
I'm new to Steemit and one of the things I want to do is write a series of articles about our experiences. I have photos from the start and now I'm starting to do some videos of our progress.
I want to title the articles "De Grid Me" #1...#2...etc.
Maybe your challenge is what I need to get me moving on this idea!
Thanks for That! (upvoted and resteemed)

Thank you, I appreciate the up vote and resteem!

Thank you for the support, I would love to read your submission! Hopefully it does turn out to be a fun little contest that people enjoy :)

I can't wait to see what everyone submits. I'm a homesteader wannabe currently on 1/4 acre but yearning for more space!

I agree, I can't wait to see the submissions! And I am also a homesteader "wannabe" with big dreams, I feel ya! Best of luck!

It's like an ache wanting to do all the things - and I think I met my homesteading idol yesterday which makes it ever stronger!

Wow so disappointed that I missed this!
For me life is homesteading and I have built one of the most renowned sustainable communities in America.
I will now be following you and checking in for the next challenge!
Thank you for much for putting forth challenges of real value!
I hope to see great success with this and I will be sure to help support it!

Awesome, I look forward to seeing your potential future submissions! The next challenge will be posted in about a week! Steem on!
