CONTEST: My 2018: A tour around my town - 100 SBD in Prizes

in #my20186 years ago (edited)

Contest season is back my friends, I hope you are ready.

I am currently in Southern México, just a few hours before crossing by foot the border to Guatemala and I found myself roaming around a small town called San Cristobal de las Casas. While walking its rustic streets I thought to myself Hey, even though this is not and adventure and just a visit, I would love to make a post about it...

And then it hit me

Why not make a contest where everyone gets to show us around their hometown, to take us on a guided tour through their secrets, corners, to meet the people living there, the touristic attractions - even if it is just one spot?
Sometimes we plan a big holiday to some place far away but we never do a touristic activity in our hometown, because it is what we´ve known all of our lives.

The contest

Make a post where you show us your hometown and the activities you can do there, the food, the people, the places, everything! You can make a video, post photos, make it a written post... whatever you want to use for the post is fine, no rules about the way to show us your hometown. The videos and photos must be yours, you can´t use photos from other websites. So... take us on a tour around your town!

Citing @mountainjewel: "There is no boring town, perhaps it won't be boring to other people who live across the world, who don't live there, to see my hometown". So yeah, don´t think your post won´t be nice, the beautiful thing about these contests is that everyone who joins brings something new for everyone else to see!

The rules

  • The post title should be: My 2018: A Tour around my town: In here you can put whatever you want.
  • The tag you should use is "My2018" and please, do NOT use the tag "blocktrades" or "sndbox"
  • Resteem this post, this way we will be able to reach more people and give everyone a chance to win some SBD.
  • In your post, please make a reference or mention this post so people who reads your entry know what it is about.

You DON´T have thank me, I´m doing this contests because I want to spread the votes as much as I can, but I have seen that some people like to include a thank you note - I appreciate the gesture :) - but don´t thank me, if there is anyone you should be thanking is @blocktrades for their SP delegation to me.

It is not mandatory, but if you want to use the @steemitworldmap I would be very grateful with you.

Also not mandatory, but using the tag #culturevulture helps to give visibility to the post.

The deadline

Every entry that is posted between February 1st and February 9th PST (Pacific Time) will be considered a valid entry for the contest. Any post made after February 9 - Pacific Time - will not be able to win.
I will be voting on every post that fills the criteria stated above, the percentage will change depending on the effort and quality of the post.

The Prizes

Depending on how many people join, I will be spliting the 100 SBD Prize. If we get a lot of people to join the contest - the last contest where we gave 100 SBD, 230 people joined - I will pitch in some more SBD´s so more people gets rewarded.

Special Thanks

Remember, making this contest and giving this prizes is only possible due to the delegation I got from @blocktrades. Don´t forget to vote for them as witness here to show them your support!

Disclaimer: In order to be able to reward a bit more those posts who deserve it, I want to nominate some of the entries for @ocd´s Daily compilation of underrated gems so, by joining this contest, you are allowing me to nominate your post :D

Great idea. This one will have some really fun responses I'm sure. I look forward to visiting/seeing towns all throughout the world.

Now my first thought is, well my little hometown i live by now is kind of a boring small country town (less than 700 people), but then I thought- perhaps it won't be boring to other people who live across the world, who don't live here? Maybe, we'll see! It will be fun to walk around with my camera or a video camera and see what new nooks and crannies I can discover with this mission. XO

By the way, San Cristobal de las casas is a great town! I loved visiting there. The streets were so alive, loved all the cobblestone...

UPDATE: Here is my post!. Let me know if you think it's interesting after all ;) ;) I'll look forward to reading many entries from around the world :)

This comment is so on point that I am citing you - kind of - in the post haha. Exactly, there is no boring town if you think that people from the philipines, nigeria, venezuela are reading yout post, for someone across the world, your town will be magical, even if it only has 3 people and 2 dogs :D

San Cristobal is beautiful, I´m loving it!

I'm from Venezuela and even given our economic and political circumstances, there's plenty to do here every day. So cheer up and participate, we wanna see your town!

Hello! I really liked your Post! I invite you to follow my blog and to vote in my last post

u rep Naija

It is nice to see you again sir @anomadsoul ,this was great , how about if i am posting my old photos of me on my home town. it was possible because I am truly here in saudi working. but I have more souvenir photos in my home town.

I've got the opposite issues. There are so many nooks and crannies in my town it will be a bigger question of where to start?! So excited to share my daily life with those around the world. It is amazing that we are all humans doing different things in different cities, but yet we are all still humans just being. Beautiful contest and look forward to entries. Thank you @blocktrades for the support to let the muse come through!

hello... i upvoted your blog and kindly upvote my blog as well...

very interesting idea!

Please find my humble entry from Saudi with love, LOL.
