Welcome to Steemit! 100% Vote For a Week - PIF Curation Contest Entry Week 12

in #payitforward3 years ago (edited)

Each day many new people join Steemit from around the world. They arive much like a child on their first day of school. no idea exactly what to expect, no idea how to succeed, not sure if the other kids will like them.

decided to focus my entry purely on the #introduceyourself tag and those featured get a 100% Vote from me for 1 week. This little boost of 21 cents per post will hopefully encourage them to keep posting. Think everyone should do this for the bloggers they featured, don't you?


The Pay It Forward Contest is run by @thedarkhorse and his team of amazing Judges @tryskele, @lynncoyle1, @energyaddict22, & @wolfhart that somehow each week manage to read countless posts and decide what entries are the best.


know that everyone has limited time, but listen to this guys youtube video and try not to listen a second time. have had it repeating in the background as typing this post and still not tired of it. Following and can't wait to hear what comes next. @bengy maybe you can introduce this person to the @classical-radio group.
Featured Post: Sarabanda & Double - BWV 1002 - J.S. Bach - Classical Guitar - My introduction on Steemit

Oscar Velasquez - @racso


found this post which was a repost in English of his intro post from 2 days ago. Dug a little deeper and @rasco had entered the Steemit Open Mic contest run by @luzcypher and thought it was worth being featured here. Very different style then the first post, but check out Steemit OpenMic Semana 90 - Summertime (duet in a Doublebass).

Bonus Entry

Since this isn't required for the official entry im ignoring the "theme" and want to mention @pifc.@thedarkhorse wants to make the Pay It Forward Contest much bigger then it currently is. His vision is to have @pifc become the home of the contest and many other contests all designed to help newbies out. With the use of @steembasicincome and @steem-bounty he will be able to reward newbies with upfront SBD and long term votes on their posts.

Thanks for keeping at it with the #payitfoward contest. I have "odd" authors so I didn't get a chance to visit your featured folks this week, but I wanted to give you much deserved thanks for supporting the project.

You of all people decide to ignore the theme..lmao...pain in my ass, but thank you for featuring @pifc.

Great entry! Both featured posts have been upvoted.

That's awesome so many familiar names! I'm glad you like the banner. I'm still playing with a few ideas I'll keep you all updated😊

hey @charisma777 - Would you help me with the #ccc initiative?
I would love to pay for a banner that embodies the honor code, which is not too different from the requirements of pay it forward. But instead of "pay it forward", the #ccc initiative is for "newbies helping newbies" and to be honorable with their posts and smart with their SP and votes.

sure! If you want to discuss details you can contact me on discord... charisma777#1683

wonderful! I'll ping you tomorrow or Monday.

Thank you for the entry @bjgeese! Weren't you the guy who wanted nothing to do with all of this, but was happy to invest haha Slowing and surely, most get sucked in :) And I love that you ignored the theme!!

I'm checking out your featured bloggers next. Thanks again...for everything, including the shout-out here as well!

no time to be sucked into steemit as a whole. but supporting pay it forward and a few people is easy.

That's a smart way to do it @bjgeese! Pick one thing that matters and focus on that alone. "Real life" takes up the rest 😅

I don't care you've ignored the theme.. I set up @thedarkhorse as my proxy anyway. and I'm here to thank you for the featured bloggers! Gosh.. it's been a long time I didn't enjoy any music post in Steemit, but they're exceptional for me... Gorgeous!! Thank You @bjgeese.

poor me.. that my vote only worth for 0.000..LOL, I vote for my featured bloggers occasionally

visit each post to comment then for a week and they will remember your help. the vote is good, but knowing a real person is reading vs all these spam bots is better.

Thanks for your suggestion.. will do that from now on, I've never thought about that before. Because O think votes are everything for them.

I supported both your featured entries . Thank You for entering.
Your bonus entry (@thedarkhorse) was outside the rules for week 12 and could not be supported at this time :)

( nice featured write up)

Thank you @bjgeese. I'm very honoured by your kind words and highlighting me in your post. I hope I can live up to the expectation.

hope to be able to give u a small boost to start your steemit journey.

Do you know what discord is? the group of people that run the contest also have a discord room where they help new members out. Don't know the link, but @thedarkhorse can get it for you if you want it.

Done! I'm onto them!

thank you! thought you would be able to help point them in the correct direction.

@bjgeese - I am duty bound to mention to you that you are eligible for the first time bonus 2.0 or a second serving of the same IF you include the tag, #ccc, which I have been promoting for "newbies helping newbies".
I know that you are not here to blog and do not blog much, but, I still need to mention this to you.
All the best!

never know what tags to use and steal them from what others use. ccc was added and thanks!
