Minnow Support Project! Weekly Minnow Resteem. Liquid Post Rewards to contest winners!

in #minnowsupportproject4 years ago (edited)

"Give a minnow an upvote and they'll eat for a day. Give a minnow a resteem and they'll eat forever."
Ancient Steemit Proverb

Hello Minnows!

I recently hit 900 followers and broke into the top 150 authors on Steemit. It had a lot to do with @kaylinart and @fyrstikken resteeming one of my posts. I literally jumped 550 followers within the last three weeks. I'm going to keep mentioning them because of how grateful I am to have had their support. It means this project can be successful and help a lot of newbies!

it got me thinking...

What if I could help my followers like @kaylinart and @frystikken helped me!?! It's pretty easy to do. All I have to do is resteem my followers! What if I could get them a reward too!?!

So, here are the rules

For every 100 upvotes I'll resteem a follower's post
To be able to get a resteem simply link your post (or a referral if you want) in the comments section. Make sure there are at least 3 days left on the post rewards because I'm not going to resteem until Thursday.
The first resteem is the post that gets the most upvotes.
The second resteem is the post I think is best based on a criteria of promoting Peace, Abundance, and Liberty.
Third and up are based on upvotes as well.
Getting upvoted by bots doesn't count.

What counts as a minnow?

If you have less than 500 followers and less than 5,000SP at the time you post then you're a minnow that's eligible for the resteem and the reward!

Which reminds me- I'm officially adding a reward to this. Liquid post rewards go to the authors that win!

So, upvote with some power folks. The winners will like it!

What about the first time winners

The first ever winner @fraenk writes-

The first ever runner up @jdawg writes-

My suggestion: Don't just leave it up to chance! Campaign for your post!

This account is getting large enough now that a resteem, an award, and an announcement about you can help you get the most followers you've picked up in a day and maybe the most SBD you've gotten in a day. Don't just leave a comment in the box with a post. Give a quick summary, ask for a vote, and then write a post about the content and ask your followers in bulk through that post to support you and be sure to ask folks privately through chat to support you.

I hope I can help you out as much as some follower whales helped me.

Lastly, any artist that wants to make a badge for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will be loved, resteemed, and awarded a $50 SBD bounty. If multiple people end up submitting I'll make a separate post, resteem, and award pool just for that. This offer valid through Thursday.

With love and gratitude


I'm announcing a witness campaign tomorrow. Please support me!

PS Don't forget to upvote your own post. Every vote counts here (except autobots).


Here is my entry. I wrote a post about the presence of street kids in Nigeria. It was Childrens day celebration on saturday in Nigeria, myself and other volunteers went to certain locations to celebrate childrens day with these kids. Helping people is one of the best thing you can do as an individual, i'm sure @aggroed agrees thats why he set up this project as an opportunity to help minnows in the community.
Please upvote, drop comments, resteem and follow me.
Thank you.

This is my entry. I am very big into helping low income kids get an education. By using Steem via my app in development I feel that when the floodgates open. Any steem the kids earn at my local event will explode in value by the time they enroll at their dream school. Help me help kids get an education from Steem. Thank you for this opportunity @aggroed. May the best post win. Comment below to ask any questions you may have.
Please upvote this to help the kids, resteem my post to help steemit reach new markets. And follow me if you want to :).

This is very [email protected] Here, my entry https://steemit.com/health/@maryfavour/how-to-calculate-your-body-mass-index . Just upvoted nd resteemed your post. Thanks a million!

New to Steemit as of June 2nd. I would appreciate any help you can give me.


This already rewarded. I'll do another post monday morning and you can post on that! Thanks for posting here!

a very nice pay it forward act

Here Is my entry for your support program.
I have written a post about how weather is in India these days, The heat waves going through and the deaths that have happened in 2015.
Wondering How Weather is in India these days, You Probably don't want to know.

I am almost a dolphin now, and my post is intentionally rather controversial. Nonetheless, I'll toss my hat in the ring here.

Memorial Day Dissent

Thank you @aggroed for your initiative to help us minows.
Talking about minows here is my entry in this weeks @fibra59's #memechallenge


Lol that is so true ...

this is how i feel

Someone promoted your post. Promotions help every steemians.
Your reward is an upvote and 0.718 SBD extra promotion.
Good job, see you next time in Promoted! ;)

What a great initiative !, I take the opportunity to share my article on the mechanisms that make many people have resistance to insulin (type 2 diabetes). Usually things that the doctor does not tell you but that are very interesting and that will help you make better decisions regarding this. It is the first in a series of post, it is in Spanish but I hope you enjoy it.:
Insuline Resistence: Explained for Humans

I was very proud of my below article, but sadly steemit users didn`t pay so much attention. Thank you for the chance @aggroed

Steemit: A marathon, not a sprint.

Fantastic idea and thanks for the opportunity. Just resteemed this excellent post. Here is a little poem/verse/rhyme I wrote about facebook and again many thanks for giving it a (potential) second life.

Thanks for the opportunity @aggroed.
It's tough- you work hard on a post and.... noone notices it ;)

Nice to meet you my coffee friend. :)

Hello @aggroed. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share a post with you and everyone else. I'll be honest with you I'm not the greatest of wordsmiths but I do do a lot of research. It started around the time Wikileaks released the first batch of DNC email. By the time they started releasing Vault 7 CIA files in February, plus all the Russia and disinfo stuff ramping, up my head was starting to drowning in my own research . So I decided I needed to set up a blogging account somewhere so I could start to post and share my findings. Steemit appealed to me because of the uncensored and decentralized nature of it. Without knowing or understanding anything about Steem I decided to set up an account. I'm glad I did because not only are the people here friendly but posting stuff feels like it means something and is very rewarding.

I've been following the story of the DNC leaks and the curious death of Seth Rich for a while. In my post I've linked below I have compiled my research along with a number of other peoples findings to prove the Russian collusion story was made up by the DNC.

SETH RICH | How The Hacker Guccifer 2.0 Was Made Up By The DNC

If anyone else here in the comments finds what I write about interesting then you can follow me here @fortified


i think because of one of your previous comments I'd already started following you. I upvoted that piece. Excellent work. Seth Rich will bring the USG to it's knees.

Oh nice. Thanks. Well I've just put together a post about the recent Shadow Brokers developments. But I don't think it really promotes Peace, Abundance, and Liberty.

THE SHADOW BROKERS | Cashing Out Of Bitcoin And Into Zcash For "TheShadowBrokers Data Dump of the Month" Service

If you think it does fits the bill I can update my previous comment.
Thanks again and yes eventually the truth will be widely known and it'll bring it all down.

Thanks for looking out for the little guys! In the interest of everyone maximizing there voting power for this contest I present you with https://steemit.com/steemit/@aaronmda/20-upvotes-every-24-hours-why-i-ll-follow-anyone-but-i-wont-just-upvote-anyone-a-k-a-how-curation-rewards-work

A few minutes ago I was in bed planning my next post and being my usual insomniac self... Now I'm glad I couldn't fall asleep!

Congrats on 900 followers, it's a huge milestone. I've been here a little over 24 hours and I'm so impressed with the positive community. I can't wait to grow up so I can help the minnows too 😃

If my first introduceyourself post could be considered, I'd be so grateful. Upvotes from any friendly people are appreciated!


@aaroed that's very generous of you to help out us plankton :]

Keep up the good work.

I love your approach! Great initiative to give something back to the community. Keep up the good work!

Here is my entry.
My story of climbing the holy mountain in Japan, Mt Fuji.

A question @aggroed: Is it possible to nominate someone else’s post?


Yeah dude! Referrals welcome!

Is it allowed only one, or there can be more of them?

Technically no rule for that, but I'd request that you keep it to one of your own per week. If you have other referrals feel free.

OK is that one of mine links and one of anyone else that deserves mention, or just one in total?

Lol, dude, link as many referrals as you want in separate comments. Just only 1 submission per person.

It's this kind of altruistic attitude from the early arrivals to the platform that will make Steemit the success it deserves to be. I arrived 2 weeks ago and love the supportive, troll free & knowledgable Steemians I have encountered.
I would like to say that any support given however small is greatly appreciated.
I've written quite a few pieces recently which sadly didn't get the amount of views I'd hoped, not for my own gain but for educating people about our current paradigm. https://steemit.com/health/@tremendospercy/autism-rates-in-the-usa-are-frightening-however-south-korean-numbers-are-worse-where-is-the-outrage Here is one from yesterday that should be read by all parents who are unaware of this issue.
And this from a few days ago which may help people question our history as a species. https://steemit.com/life/@tremendospercy/why-are-humans-so-destructive-why-do-we-make-no-sense
Take a look folks see what you think, do your own research as you should never take anyone's word for anything that's how you end up being sheeple.
To all that have followed me in the last 2 weeks I am very grateful and ask that you will vote for this comment and continue to support my efforts.
Thanks @tremendospercy

in keeping with the summer, a little taste of jaws

Thanks for this, I've discovered some really great posts that in wouldn't have without your post here. My entry is from my adventure on Great Barrier Island NZ that taught me that you really can live off the grid and make it work. That opened my eyes to so many different lifestyle possibilities. Here's the link. Of course I've upvoted your post. https://steemit.com/photography/@judym/learning-sustainability-on-great-barrier-island-nz

You're going to want to post a new link on Monday!

Will do, thanks! :)

Hey! Not sure if I am too late on this but I made a post I think you might like. The title is pretty self-explanatory, it's called "Optimism at the End of the World 1: Empathy and Why the Future is Bright". I offer content like this to encourage people to realize that their thoughts and actions matter and that the answers to the worlds problems aren't just in the hands of the powerful. I'm here at steem to brainstorm ideas about community building with other like-minded people, to share my writing, and hopefully to strike it rich so I can spend 100% of my time on writing, music and community building, all of which this platform can be a part of.

I don't intend on kissing whale ass to get resteemed but it would be nice to get a big extra push like this so I could reach more people. I spent the last 2 weeks on steem and gained almost 100 followers, many of them awesome people that I want to get to know more (wish there was a pm function here) but still only got 19 views on my post, even with 2 resteems from other minnows.

If I missed it this time, that's ok, I really appreciate what you are doing with this project and hope to find other minnows I can support here.


You're gonna wanna post a new one on Monday. The voting really only happens on that day and tuesday.

::cries:: ok <3

Ahhh, ok, I will have to time carefully to make sure it's an English post and not a Japanese one.

This is quite a helpful project for minnows & planktons like me :)

I wrote an article a couple of days ago that talks about certain false predictions about where crypto currencies are headed. With more new comers everyday than ever in steemit, I felt this post will get the needed attention esp. for newbies who are being potentially misled to invest heavily in cryptocurrencies; however I did not see the intended results yet.

I hope that through your campaign this post will reach a much larger audience. If it reaches a noob invester/ enthusiast, I think this post will help them make a sensible investment choice/ strategy & therefore good karma for me


Hello @aggroed

Very commendable effort of giving back & helping the community ..you have a new follower now 😀

Here the link to one of my posts I wrote yesterday -


A very very brief Intro to Steemians -
I am a self taught photographer & photography is my expression of life .I share & express through my photography .Photography though is not my main work right now but want to make it one day

I request Steemians to have a look at my blog posts and upvote & support if you like what I share..cheers

Let's also support @aggroed with this gesture ❤

@aggroed great initiative. If you want learn about peace, abundanc or liberty you may look into the intriguing world of bees.


PEACe: BEES are peacefull. All worker bees have a destination and focus. If you work with bees, you need to be relaxed. Its optimal relaxation.

Abundance: bees know to store wealth. Everything (honey)that is more than needed is transferred to a comb and sealed for winter use. To help future generations.

If you were a bee you could reach to the sun and fly where you want ;-)


Hello, kudos for your effort! I would like to submit my entry below. It incorporates how Steemit has become a fascinating and integral part of my life.

Things I Like To Do On Weekends | Steemit - New Addition To The List

Thanks @aggroed I appreciate the help and 'paying it forward' as it were.

Here's the post for your consideration.

This is great, thanks for paying it forward! Here is my submission, it's my modified version of Ben E Kings Stand by Me to promote solidarity:

Here is one that didn't went so well:

Good idea, resteemed Smile - clin-oeuil-langue.gif

Thanks for the resteem. Be sure to tell your crew to upvote your comment!

They are too busy Smile - clin-oeuil-langue.gif

I love this. Makes me smile knowing there are so many good whales willing to help out the minnows like myself. Here is a photo entry from me.

I'm just a dolphin, but I"m trying to help!

Either way. I love it. When im no longer a minnow i will be trying to help out as well. Making steemit grow one minnow at a time

Cool. It's gonna take a bunch of us working on that to make it happen.

resteem and upvote for you

Thanks Aggroed.
I love helping people, so I'm always sharing the things I learned. It took me many hours to compile this list of information and now its in a neat package for others to consume.
I would love to have the audience of your minnowsupport project for this post: https://steemit.com/steemhelp/@happyme/what-most-tutorials-don-t-tell-you-about-steemit-com . I think it would benefit a great number of people.

This looks cool!

Thank-you! I wish there was a way to show it to every new Steemian when they create their accounts. It would have saved me a week's worth of research if something like that was there when I opened my account.


Yeah dude! Good times!

For the first time in years, I feel there might be hope for our species!!!!
thank you for your part in that!

Lol, the world is filled with good people. It's just run by bad ones. We'll be ok when folks wake up and they are waking up.

...I am 49yr's young, I grew up learning a lot of things that are "conspiracy" "theory",and "politically" "incorrect" I have been telling people for years! about the Fed Res. Debt.system, trying to break the two party system, and explaining the psychological control structures and religious control ..ect..ect..
It is great to finally see the sheep listening...lol...It's no fun being the only "smart ass" around..lol... loving the company! and the chance to bray along,to create some harmony,instead of discord!
Have a great day namaste!

Nice initiative, also I’m glad that I see you will try your luck as witness… is my 5th vote going to be cast? Anyway first I want to let you know that registration for DnS has started yesterday and you are pre-registered. Unfortunately it’s not about peace, more like a bloody fights and evil dice rolls right? Peace in strange way is promoted in my article about Xenophobia, so I should run with that one in your project. I believe though, that Resteemed should be those articles that are in harmony with our own thoughts or when one wants to promote someone’s initiative. Anyway if I receive any Steem through this post it will all be donated to the games prize pool. I sincerely hope that your witness campaign will persuade me to send your way my vote.

Good idea! I have a big whale that has taken my under his ... uh, flipper or something. But I only have one favor to ask. Check out my FIVE PART INTRODUCTION POST (Part 1 is available now).

I have so much content overflow... that it will take 5 posts to introduce myself. You've got to be curious now!!

Here is my little bitty post that needs some love and liberty and truth. Please follow me... I am going to knock your collective socks off!

The World's Most Dangerous Introduction Post (Part 1)

Great post. I hope this is not a campaign post.

It's a weekly post! No plans on stopping any time in the near future. That's why I'm upgrading.

This post has been ranked within the top 25 most undervalued posts in the second half of May 29. We estimate that this post is undervalued by $25.07 as compared to a scenario in which every voter had an equal say.

See the full rankings and details in The Daily Tribune: May 29 - Part II. You can also read about some of our methodology, data analysis and technical details in our initial post.

Hello aggroed. Thanks for making this contest. I posted an article today about how I believe People need People during disasters. Personally, I stock up on hurricane lanterns so that I will have enought for all my neighbours if the lights go out for a prolonged period. They are easy to acquire at garage sales.
I finished the article asking my audience whether they would be helpers or looters during a disaster.
Have a look at the article everyone, and resteem as you wish. . .
By @susieisms

dude that is an awesome project you have, thanks for all your work! Probably why your follower count is growing so rapidly

Yeah, I think there are rewards when choosing a path of service to others. Hopefully others can benefit like I am.

According to your definition, I must be a meaningless, micro-minnow. Haha 😭

We all started there bud!

I hear you. I feel inspired by your success!

Also, you ever need a resteem again just message me in steemit chat. You've already paid.

You were there? Woah, just read. Resteemed. You can still be in the contest for the rewards.

Thank you very much!

In your rules, you stated:

The first resteem is the post that gets the most upvotes.

However, it is unclear if the upvotes counted are on 'the article itself' or 'the comment on this page' that links back to the article. Both places can be voted on, but which is what you actually count? If you count the 'article itself', does that mean you need to visit each submitted entry to view the votes on that article and make note of the number of votes it received or is there a simpler method? It seems like one heck of a lot of work!

No, votes on the comment!!!!

Ah! OK, thanks for the clarification. I wonder if that point is clear with others who have submitted or may submit in the future? Of course this method would be easier on you, but puts the first few submissions at an advantage because those willing to vote need to put in greater effort to find the later submissions that are farther down.

yeah. I've seen that, but I've also seen how people that interact with their followers to rally votes can be succesful even if they are a little late to the party.

My entry is a contest for a tool we created to help minnows gain steempower that should also have the power to raise the price of steem: https://steemit.com/whaleshares/@jphenderson/whaleshares-writing-contest-submit-your-article-for-a-chance-to-win-some-whaleshare-tokens

Ooh, that's a really neat initiative! Should definitely help those among us like myself that are kinda new to the whole Steemit thing.

Great. Now add an article you want in the contest to this comment!!! :)

here's this drawing of 2hu grill Tewi I did that I turned into an article:

Yes please!! 🙏😁

Hi @aggroed. I'm so new, I don't think I'm a minnow yet. :) Here is my first post on steemit. https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@sarkhomestead/southern-ark-homestead-is-now-on-steemit

Please repost on monday. There will be anew contest. This one already announced winners.

Monday escaped me because of family chaos but I wanted to share my recent post with you. I hope you like it.

OK, well, there's next monday too. I'll check it out.

His initiative in giving back to his audience and helping beginners is excellent.


Am I late to the party?!? :)
