So in case, you haven't heard the awesome @c0ff33a, who basically put on his hero boots here at steem has decided to delegate 100SP to one lucky and of course deserving @welcomewagon graduate or newbie!! How great is that??? His some kinda big fish isn't he?? If you want to know a bit more about this challenge, have a look at the contest announcement post over here.. And if you don't already, give this guy some follow love and a vote as witness, cause he really deserves it!!


Why I Think I Deserve The 100 SP by @mimismartypants

So this part is the hardest for, I'm not one to blow my own horn, so motivations like these really don't come naturally to me. My whole life, I have been a firm believer that the calibre of my work is proof of my capability. It's always been of a high standard, so I always had the plus side that it kinda speaks for itself! Like they say, the "Proof is in the pudding!"

Let's Take A Closer Look And Think About This

I haven't been around on the blockchain for long, so there is not much proof in my capabilities, and also you don't know me at all, so for all you know I could be a real dud!! And no one wants to invest in a dud now, do they!!

Then we have the dilemma of why me, @mimismartypants, a loud mouth know it all should get the prize in comparison to some of the fantastic members of the welcome wagon - who have been doing really great work for months and months on the blockchain? Like why risk it all on this pair of pants??

The Truth Is: I Don't Know Why??

I'd like to say I have the dream of becoming a super friendly big fish and doing some good on the blockchain. Invest in newbies, encourage them to grow and give them a means to the end over here. I do think that all of us in the Welcome Wagon has this in common. Great personalities who are so helpful and keen to help each other grow, share advice and findings and even be a shoulder to cry on when things feel like they going nowhere slowly. So this reasoning won't cut it at all.

So many of the people I have spoken to about steemit seem interested, but they put off by the work they have to put in to build their accounts. They all have the attitude of "let's see how you do and then we will join if you are successful." This is probably the wrong the wrong type of users to recruit, but they are also the type of people that will create a ton of content on other social media platforms for free. So my thing is why not earn a buck or two by doing the same thing.

So the main point that I'd like to communicate today I suppose is "Proof of Concept." It's the main thing that brings me back here each day, that if I can prove this system works on my own account, it will be so much easier to recruit new people to join. Showing them the ropes and helping them find that blockchain addition would be the goal so that overall we can grow the user base and have so much more to read and share. Ultimately, we will help build a platform on a lucrative platform, with loads of active users who will intern get their circles to join as well.

If I get that extra bit of SP it will help me get a little more respect in the steemiverse and proof of concept so much faster. If I don't someone else will, who deserves it as well and I just wrote a very reflective Ulog which qualifies as an awesome piece of content.

So thanks for the opportunity @c0ff33a, if I don't make the cut, I won't feel bad. I will eventually get to 100SP and then 500 organically!!

If you not @c0ff33a, and managed to stay with me this far, thanks for reading!!

Much Love From Sunny Cape Town, @mimismartypants

Sorry @kinglyplace, this competition is unfortunately only open to graduates of the @welcomewagon! Maybe next time!

Haha - I'll always vote on this pair of pants- and you couldn't manage to be a dud even if you tried!

I like your reasoning, and it's a very good point- reaching out and bringing fresh committed talent to the blockchain is important, as is helping them to thrive and stay. Excellent entry Mimi- very good luck <3

Hahhaha!! Well this pair of pants appreciates your support!!

Definitely needed hey. How many people have you successfully managed to convert?? I have a friend that keeps saying she should register and ano2that registered, got approved and nothing has happened! Otherwise none so far!!

I haven't converted anyone... and I'm not going to try to. I mention it to people, send them the link if they ask, but it's my belief that if the idea strikes a cord with them, they will chase the opportunity. Happy to provide info but not lead by the nose. And I don't want to become baby-sitter to people I know who are not committed. I prefer to pour my energy into people who are already here but need support to grow. Makes me sound like a right cowbag ;)

Thank you very much for joining in, this is an excellent example of why @welcomewagon works - it brings together new Steemians and helps them realise their full potential by working together.

I really like your concept of showing the people you know Steemit works and then they will join, it does make me wonder if you have researched the upvote qualities built into Steemit or if this is blind luck - either way it has to be better to create content you can get rewards for on Steemit then give it away for free on other Social Media (The names will remain unmentioned to protect the innocent)

I have no doubt every one of the @wagonwheel recruits an graduates will grow organically - you already show an obvious team spirit that is enviable and look after each other - every one of you should be proud of what you have achieved.

Good luck, as @dreemsteem said to me this is going to be so difficult because you are all awesome!

Thanks very much dude!! I'm glad you found the read valuable abd it didn't make your eyes bleed lol!!

I have not formerly researched the upvote qualities of steemit I just have a basic understanding of how it all works. For me its just based on community and and uplift said community by rewarding their work. But its also pretty logical, if your producing utter crap you wont last long! Content doesn't need to be super factual or purely creative. It just has to talk to the community you targeting! I'm actually a digital marketer by trade, so analysing platforms and benefits is something i do unconsciously. But let's just call it blind luck lol!

I have no doubt you decision will be hard!! All the entries were really great!! So be assured that you really can't make a wrong decision!! Good luck with your task ahead!!

PARTAAAAY!

...but they are also the type of people that will create a ton of content on other social media platforms for free.

In my early posting days my practice was to repost a link to my steem post in my facebook account. It worked as a nice transition to the new platform as well as drawing some FB friends to steem to read the reposted link.

·

This is actually a really great idea!! I should really start doing this!! Thanks for the awesome tip @novacadian!!
