CLOSED: Week 46 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in #payitforward2 years ago (edited)


This week we will have 5 Random Winners who each get an SBI share instead of the normal 2. This means at least 9 entries will win a prize this week plus another 8 shares for featured bloggers. That is a total of 17 total SBI Shares this week!

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.

Make sure to check back to this post often and scroll to the end to see a list of this week's curation entries! This list is updated on a regular basis to help make it easy for you to visit the entries and help support the great content that has been curated.

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.


  • 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.
** Art posts that show at least 3 steps of progression will not need to have 200 words of content, but still attempt to explain their art. Please use some common sense here.

Posts from Parley and dmania are not acceptable.

Votes on Entry Comments will be given in the later part of the week. We tend to run low on VP during the first few days of the Curation Contest as each entry means 4 total upvotes, 2 for the featured bloggers, 1 for the entry, and 1 for the entry comment. Then we tend to have excess VP later in the week so this will help us manage our VP and give you larger votes.

As usual a very early entry, @zorank. I have supported both bloggers.

You're very quick and rarely disappoint with your picks. Well done!

Entry #1

here is my entry for this week, I have no idea what to share for the daily post because I'm feeling unwell .. so, Have fun anyone!

I love you @macoolette tooo 😍😍😍

@cicisaja you have such a big heart

😂😂😂 don't you realize that @macoolette almost a dolphin now😉

She is a Dolphin. It was very nice to see that happen. I am very Glad for her.

Trying to catch up for the low price before our #STEEM hustle on Twitter, being led by @nathanmars, brings Steem price to the moon. Please join the hustle. 😊

You are doing increadable well with your SP. I have to wait until the 1st and see If I can scrape some fiat out to get some more steem. With all the health bills I struggle to buy steem. Been lucky so far been getting some every month. I was hoping that gold monster card would sell. (600 steem :))
I hope that the price does not get to high before the first.
I saw the push on twitter. I hope it works out well.

Okay, here too is your 100% up! 😂

I read that comment from cicisaja and she truly ment it. What a heart she has. She has always made me smile over the past year.

Sometimes I get such a joy from steemians. Big smiles over the little things :) the comments did it.
When I say that they have given me strenth I ment it.

😂😂😂 welcome to the world of call and answer😉
