Our guest judge will this week will be @paulag. We are very lucky to have her join us as a judge. Between running The Redfish Power UP League and being part of the witness group @steemcommunity there is no question that @paulag is a huge supporter of the steemit community. It's great having someone of this caliber join us as a judge.

As @wolfhart isn't going to be able to be a judge again this week. @viking-ventures is going to help and cover @wolfhart's spot for another week.

Another change is @headchange will be covering for @lynncoyle1.

As always check back to this post often and scroll to the end to see a list of this week's curation entries!

What is the Pay It Forward Curation Contest?

The Curation Contest is here to allow any and all Community Minded Steemians the opportunity feature 2 great blog posts written by Level 55 and below Steemians. To do this you will write a single curation style blog post like this entry by @viking-ventures from week 16 which won a Judges Choice Award.

To be clear the Level 55 max is only for the bloggers who are featured, any rep score members may submit a curation entry.

Contest Date Range

This contest run from Now until Saturday 09/15/18 at 11:59pm CST (USA, Chicago).

The winners will be announced on Wednesday 09/09/18 at 12:01am

This Weeks Rules

For this week you will need a curation style entry that includes 2 High Quality Original Content Blog Posts from Steemians with a reputation score of 55 or under.

  • Curation Style Post of 2 Bloggers who are posting Quality Original Content
  • Link to 1 recent blog post per featured blogger. Keep in mind that many will follow this link and upvote so pick a post that isn't close to payout!
  • Include a link to this contest in your entry post
  • The 2 bloggers you curate need to be rank 55 or below
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how I track everything!

👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content. We want to see no less then 200 words of original written content. So a single photo is fine as long as there is 200 words with it. 200 words is about 12 lines of content. Posts from Parley and dmania are not acceptable.

This week 14 winners are going to get a sponsorship for #steembasicincome!

There will be 2 SBI Sponsorship's purchased on a random basis. Anyone who wins a Judges Choice SBI is excluded from the Random SBI drawing.

All 8 of the featured bloggers from the Judges Choice Winners posts will also get an SBI Share. These shares are purchase by the sponsors listed later in the post.

@steembasicincome is run by @josephsavage and is a great program designed to provide a lifetime income to members who have SBI Shares.

Your balance is below $0.3. Your account is running low and should be replenished. You have roughly 10 more @dustsweeper votes. Check out the Dustsweeper FAQ here: https://steemit.com/dustsweeper/@dustsweeper/dustsweeper-faq

Back again for another fun week of helping our fellow Steemians. For your reading pleasure, I have an interesting mix for you this week:

Thank you.

·

I visited and upvoted both of your entries into this week’s contest @macoolette.

As time allows, I hope to be back for more personalized input, but wanted to insure I took care of this part, prior to the expiration of the 7-day payout period. Not ideal, but the best I can do for now.

Thank you for your effort here in support of our growing PIFC Community!

Entry #10

·

Thanks a lot for your selections. That story about tipping is really strange to hear. over here, no one in their right mind gives tips for any service less than good.

But Americans do. How weird.

·
·

It is mostly due to the labor laws. Minimum wage for most jobs is triple what restaurants are allowed to pay their servers. So the vast majority of a servers income comes through tips. Their paychecks are usually $0 since it is just barely enough to cover the taxes that are withheld.

·

I visited and attempted to upvote both of your entries into this week’s contest @dollarsandsense. Successful on the 1st. The 2nd was past the 7-day payout limit.

As time allows, I hope to be back for more personalized input, but wanted to insure I took care of this part, prior to the expiration of the 7-day payout period (if possible). Not ideal, but the best I can do for now.

Here we go for this week! Two unexpected (in an unexpected way) finds!

Entry #1

·

Hi there! I've commented and supported both your featured bloggers.

·

Hi @bengy. Dropping in and letting you know I've written comments and supported both of your selections.

Very good ones! And who knew the Champ also posted! Great storyteller ...

·
·

Thanks for supported the featured bloggers!

Congratulations @pifc

Nice to meet this weeks judges @paulag @headchange @viking-ventures @tryskele

·

Hi @sherbanu 😃 I hope you'll be joining in this week!!

·
·

Hoping for the best @tryskele. Thanks for the response!

·
·
·

You're welcome!! I try to make sure I do. I don't like when people keep me hanging, I try not to do it to anyone :)

·
·
·
·

That's really nice of you. : )

Hellloooo PIFC'ers Let's kick some butt and take names Thank you so much for helping out this week @paulag and @headchange. Thank you @viking-ventures for stepping up and being a great help.

·

Vikings and Celts unite!

·
·

YES!!!!

·

@viking-ventures is a my favourite author.😀

·
·

Awwww, thank you.

·
·
·

Eh she's ok LOL j/k I completely agree.

·
·
·
·

hahahaha! Just you wait... :-p
Actually, you with your Celtic interest will really like my next book... Brighid has an interesting side to her. (I do have some Irish, Scottish and Welsh blood as well, but you have to go a lot further back to get to it - whereas my Viking side is quite recent.)

·
·
·
·
·

The Viking side I know goes way back, struggling a little with finding a relative here or there. The Scot/Irish side I know is on my dad's side I can't find anything on my great grandparents on his side and to search anything through Ancestry you have to pay, which sucks rocks.

I think Brighid is very interesting :) I have always had an interest in her and Danu.

·
·
·
·
·
·

My mother is fond of Danu. (Even though she has no suspected Celtic blood.) I feel a stronger tie to Freya. I've often used her as a name for games or whatnot.

It was the stray Finn I found this year that was the real surprise - as well as the 0.4 % Subsaharan African ancestry my cousin found... supposedly one ancestor about 200 years ago - so maybe a slave in the woodshed.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Wow that's interesting. I know things like that are kind of dumbfounding. There is one theory that human life began in Africa.

I may pop in and out, because I just can't stay away for long haha, but thank you so much @headchange for taking care of things here for me this week :) You're awesome! And welcome @paulag!! So great to have you here with us too!

·

Don't mess around with a bump on the head. If you are still feeling off by now you should be getting it looked at.

·
·

Thank you for the concern! but it's more my back/shoulder/neck kind of thing ... my head is way too hard to be affected by that :)

See you are new, but that is a great way to get a flag. Fair warning if you upvote this to steal part of the bounty you will be reported to the bounty program and banned from all future earning. Plus fully expect lots of flags. Either add something of value or don't, but don't spam.

Hi! I am a robot. I just upvoted you! I found similar content that readers might be interested in:

Ah, you crazy bot. I shall call the ABC trio of bots to deal with your misguided ways.
@automation, @banjo and @cleverbot: check out what this fool is saying.

·
·

I went to the discord to ask about getting whitelisted so this stupid shit wouldn't be posted on every weeks post. If the account ONLY posts the same thing each week like a contest and nothing else then they will whitelist it. Then the account isn't allowed to post anything else. Complete stupidity.

·
·
·

Eheheheheh! That's Unbelievable! Well, unless the bot starts flagging, I guess we can simply ignore the bot's messages.

·
·
·
·

I half debated flagging the bot each week until they fix their rules. But it won't effect it's Rep as even my main account isn't close to a level 75 which would be needed.

·
·
·
·
·

It's not worth it to fight whales. I have learnt that the bad way. 😝

·
·
·

Finishing up this week's effort to support all of these entries @thedarkhorse, I agree with @trincowski. "Engaging" with a bot, etc. probably not going to end well.

Definitely a nuisance, which I have noticed, but I just "scroll on by" and ignore it. My two cents ...

·
·

That your name is Mor.
