It's always a good time to go out in search of new users to share knowledge, and welcome them into the community. Here we are having a contest for it.
The real incentive is this: The more new users who come to steem and learn how to have enjoyable productive journeies, the more investments of time, energy, and money are also coming into the platform. If you want to succeed, and you want Steem to succeed, then you also want others to succeed, here.
In this round of the Welcoming Contest we will be finding new users who haven't seen much activity in their blogs yet, offering some encouraging words, as well as a few resources for them to help.
Here is an example of a simple Welcome Message I just left:
I responded to the text in their introduction, left a helpful link, and a link to the Writers Block discord server since they mentioned an interest in writing.
The rules for this round of the welcoming contest are:
Find a new user who either has just posted their introduction, or has made some effort without experiencing much activity on their blog.
This user has NOT already recieved a welcome message with helpful links.
You will leave a message responding to what their post, and offering some helpful resources.
Afterwards, you will leave a link in the comments of this post, to the post you commented on.
There will be a sliding scale on how much you can win per welcome message from .5 steem - 1.5 steem depending on the quality of the comment you left.
You can win for leaving as many as 5 welcome messages, but will not be awarded at all for simply copy pasting the same message to 5 people, or leaving a welcome message to someone who has already been warmly welcomed with a list of resources.
If you go above and beyond there are extra prizes available. I will leave "above and beyond" to your imagination, feel free to share all of your welcoming activities, here in the comments.
I hope to see some creativity, originality, and quality interactions in this round.
