**Closed** Week 27 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in payitforward •  7 months ago

Couple quick announcements before we get into the contest.

First on a really good note, we have had a few @pifc members recently become minnows! @trincowski, @brittandjosie, and @viking-ventures. It's exciting to see great people continue to grow and look forward to seeing each of your reach Dolphin!

Speaking of becoming a Minnow...Last week we allowed each entry to make suggestions for redfish which will be supported in the MinnowBuilder Program. There were some great suggestions and those who are part of the pifc family will get priority. Currently @minnowbuilder3 is in it's first round of share sales.

The last announcement is more somber, but at the same time an amazing reminder of the relationships we build here on steemit. I know that many already know this, but one of our own needs all the good vibes, prayers, or whatever you believe in sent his way. @wolfhart is battling cancer and starts his chemo treatments on Tuesday (today by the time this goes live). So for our friend and mentor to many in the @pifc family lets keep him in our thoughts today as he needs all the help he can get.

Now because the show must go on...not kidding @wolfhart made me promise to keep this going...lets get to week 27.

No changes of note so for the regulars go start curating and those of you who are here for the first time welcome and read below for the rules.

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

Entry #6

·

Nice selections!

Congratulations to @trincowski, @brittandjosie, and @viking-ventures! That's great news :) And of course @wolfhart insisted on this continuing; most would have put all of this on the back burner, but he's a real trooper for sure.

Looking forward to what this week has to offer :)

·

He really is a trooper. Even figured out how to use his phone to access steemit to stay connected during all of this.

·
·

I know! I can just hear him yelling at it still haha

·

Thank you @lynncoyle1 and @wolfhart I am sending some power and love from Holland. ( not steempower I am sorry 😉😉 ) and for the chemo LETS DO THE DAMN THING💪 its a New start i Will be praying for you.

·
·

That's so nice of you @brittandjosie! I think he can use all the prayers we can send! <3

I wasn't sure if I'd manage to get an entry in this week. It took a while, but here it is:

·

Entry #19

·

Awesome candidates! I'll be following both. :-)

·
·

Thanks! Glad you found them interesting!

The new week rolls around so quickly. Love seeing the success of the minnowbuilder project.
Continuing to keep @wolfart and family in my thoughts, especially today.

You know the rules you know the game. Let's see who we can inspire this week. I am not sure if new people are afraid to try? Don't be. We don't bite, ok most of us don't bite LOL. Helping others grow helps you grow. It goes hand in hand. Plus we have FANTASTIC people that participate and support @pifc.

·

Entry #14

·

Your first selection is very good, @ravijojla! But I'm afraid you'll going to need to ask your second blogger to add a little more text to his post.

As it stands, it falls short from the quality requirements for the contest.

Thanks for your entry!

·
·

I'll see to that! Thank you very much for letting me know!

·

Entry #18.

·

Entry #13

Wow what a great idea! How come that this is the first time I've noticed it???

Here my entry for week #27 - https://steemit.com/payitforward/@matkodurko/week-27-pay-it-forward-curation-contest

·

Entry #20

·

Thanks, you've featured a couple of nice entries. One is about my country. How cool.

Dear @pifc I just finished visiting All 19 participants and their 38 nominees ( YES including My own) I promised myself to use My votes and comments to do the whole list for once.
Keep up the great work !
Have a great weekend readers 😉

·

Entry #21

Just an FYI, last minute entries tend to get a lot less visits then earlier entries. This one might even have been a couple hours late...but allowing it. Just know if you can get in earlier in the week the people you feature will likely get more eyeballs on their posts meaning more votes and engagement.

·
·

Thanks!

·

Thanks but I advise you to switch your first choice, as it's an exact copy of this article:
https://www.africa.com/10-african-wedding-traditions/

Unless he proves that article was written by him, we can't support such content.

I hope you understand.

·
·

Yes, I completely understand. It is my mistake I didn't check it further! I will delete my comment for the entry.

·
·
·

No problem. Just let me know when you find that second choice.

If you are out of ideas, look for a good post in the "introducingmyself" tag. 😉

·
·
·
·

Well, here is my entry.

Thanks again for your help!

·
·
·
·
·

You're welcome. I have just visited it. Nice choice! 😉

·

Thank you! And thanks to @trincowski for being on-the-ball on the plagiarism. I have often found that I find one on my way to my pifc entry.

·

Entry #15. @brittandjosie if you want to make your own comment I will make sure to upvote it for the bounty.

·
·
·

Ohhh I did forget , Thanks for having My back !

thank you so much for this great step.. new bloggers like me get a platform to b featured and can get involve with the community...innovative initiative thought and i totally congrats and support for this great idea ... thx @pifc ...

Great initiative you have here, supporting newcomers with the MinnowBuilder Program.

Also a big shoutout to @wolfhart sending him well needed positive vibes from the @blockbrothers.

·

Thank you. The plan started off with searching out newcomers with the curation contest which is now 27 weeks strong. From there we realized that our helping boost 1 post just isn't enough to help reduce the turnover on steemit.

So after a lot of thought and trying to come up with a good win-win to support redfish and those who support the program. Think we came up with a plan that is sustainable and will only grow over time.

Thanks for your support with the vote and for @wolfhart!

Thank you @patrice. Appreciate you doing that.

·

Okay, I have whitelisted @pifc. I won't bug them.

·
·

Was that so hard...?

·
·
·

Hahaha! I did not realize there is that so easy way to get around cheetah. 😂

·
·
·
·

That's awesome! I need to do that for another contest - can anyone use the command, @patrice? Because @vdux does a weekly contest that often gets bugged by cheetah.

·
·
·
·
·

Someone to do it? I take that to mean not everyone can do it. Cheetah is picky huh? 😄

·
·
·
·
·
·

Just wondered if you had to be on a certain list (like in cheetah's circle) to be allowed to give her the command...
Gotta handle these kitties carefully, after all!

·
·
·
·
·

Just Patrice. Would kind of defeat the purpose if anyone could do it.

·
·
·
·
·
·

That's what I wondered...
I'll just have to remember her next time I come across cheetah being over-exuberant. Thanks!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Ditto. 👍

Loading...

I'm out of firepower for today... Thanks for your entries, everyone!

·

😂 I spent all my power before it touch 50% and lost that 0.019 value to all featured bloggers.. perhaps tomorrow there will be more featured bloggers to support with the rest of it before I lay low for 4 days 😆

I just want to congratulate my friend @trincowski, two are people who often come in my posts. and today you are in a more decent place ...

not much I want to say, but my prayer for @wolfhart, I wish you all the best, keep up your spirit my friend. and thank you for all the judges and participants
