The Pay It Forward Curation Contest is all about increasing exposure for high quality posts and increase the level of engagement on steemit. You can take part by entering the contest or just helping visit the entries and their featured posts. Everyone chooses their level of involvement and we appreciate the efforts of everyone who helps promote quality content on Steemit.

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!

How to Enter the Pay It Forward Curation Contest?

To enter the Curation Contest you will find 2 high quality blog posts written by reputation level 55 or lower steemians and then write a curation style blog post like this entry by @viking-ventures from week 16 which won a Judges Choice Award. The idea is to highlight both posts and why you thought they were high quality.

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

Rules:

  • Curation Style Post that highlights your 2 featured blog posts.
  • Link to the high quality blog posts in your curation post. 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 we track everything!

👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content and that post spells out what that means. If you are new please read it.

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.

hi @pifc
Can I choose again the one who I have chosen ??

You should be sharing new bloggers each week. Every so often if you see a great post from someone you featured weeks ago it's ok to repeat, but make sure it's really a good one.

I am assuming that is what you were asking about. If not please explain a little more what you are wondering.

·

Thanks for your entry. I'll try to post mine later today, if I find good candidates until then.

·
·

Thank you for showing your support to my candidates. Hope you will discover some yourself.

·
·
·

It shouldn't be complicated, with so much talent around here. PS: I've started following @raquel.ramirezv, too! ;-)

Sorry but this is to late for the contest. Will upvote the entry and the featured bloggers to give support but it's not a valid entry.

Entry cut off is Saturday at midnight Chicago Time (CST with daylight savings)

·
·

Yes, funny thing is that I had put the link in a comment but forgot to post it so when I got a heads up that this was missing out I went back to check it out and saw the link still there waiting to be posted so I posted it. I've got some good ones for next week. Just waiting for the contest post to come out.

·
·
·

Oh so I'm not the only one that does that. Good to know...lol. Sorry that it happened that way. Looking forward to see who you feature. Almost time.

You're a few minutes early...
I actually had my first blogger show up on my Whaleshares account last night... So, I had it all ready to go. :-)

I wanted to get to sleep and figured posting a little early would get me there. Talk about being on top of things!

Entry #1

·

Posted 1 minute after @pifc's announcement? Congratulations, you got this week's Speedy Gonzales Award!

·
·

I had to make sure I beat you to the artists... especially after the first one found me on Whaleshares!

Hey, there! Here is my entry.

Cheers!

Entry #13

Hi! My Voting Power was pretty high, so I decided to visit another entry.

I chose yours over the others because your featured blogs had the lowest rewards of them all... And they're also pretty good.

Well picked.

·
·

Thank you! I appreciate it!

Back around again this week:

https://steemit.com/curation/@bengy/payitforwardentry-week31-7yznrjonrg

I'll see if I can scratch out some time for visiting, but in case I don't manage. Does @pifc have a curation trail on SteemAuto?

·

Entry #7

@bengy there is a trail, @pifctrail but I haven't been using it yet. Was going to get it set up, but the issue is size of vote and how many votes PIFC tends to do in rapid succession. It could crush someone's VP.

So was thinking maybe that I would do just vote the featured bloggers with it. This would still be 30-40 votes a week and most are in a matter of 3 days.

Let me know your thoughts.

·
·

People would be following with a scaling (or fixed if they wanted). Also, you can set a cutoff for stopping the automation... it would be handy for those of us that use the automation due to the lack of time to chase every lead! ... but I'm confused, why use a seperate account for the trail? Doesn't the @pifc account only vote on the entries?

·
·
·

Just on the contest alone it votes on all the comments to for the entry and as I'm out reading entries some comments get voted too. Plus this isn't the only post we have for the week and now we have Pimp Your Post entries to upvote. The votes are all over the place. Then add in self voting, votes of judges, and some votes for supporters when VP allows and it adds up. Currently at 142 votes in the last 7 days.

·
·
·
·

Does the curation trail follow comment votes? I don't know!

·
·
·
·
·

Honestly I'm not sure on that one. Either way the idea was that if we used a different account it could upvote only selected posts like entries and the featured blog posts. This will at least take it down to about 50-60 votes a week.

Was going to do a post asking the opinions of the community if that would be best or do just the featured blog posts which gets it down to about 30-40 votes a week depending on the week. Yet another option was to only vote on the actual entries with the account and help grow those who are helping curate, but I think that is way to much like trickle down economics...lol.

Sorry for being MIA, but I got nailed with a bad flu and have been out all week; it's a bad one going around here. This is my first day out of bed all week!

·

Sorry to hear that. Hope you feel better.

·

Great choices. 😃

Glad you have an interest in the contest, but this contest is not about self promotion. The contest is about featuring other people's blog posts, not your own. Please read the rules of the contest if you would like to submit an entry.

After reading the rules laid out in this post go look at a few entries to get an idea of how people lay out their entries. There is even a sample entry in the rules to look at from someone that has won the Judges Choice award many times.

That all said please remove the link to your post and all self promotion.

If you want to drop a link and try to get some visitors that way we also have the Pimp Your Post promotion: https://steemit.com/contest/@pifc/pimp-your-post-3-135fdd91afcd6est that you can drop a link on.

Always nice to see the entry, thank you very much for you all and your great work and effort.
