Week 49 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in payitforward •  2 months ago  (edited)


It was great seeing entries from a few new people last week along with those from long time PIFC community members. This past week we had 13 entries including ones from @chekohler, @zorank, @bengy, @shari-loveurlife, @celinavisaez, @guifaquetti, @adeljose, @soulkanzart, @betzaelcorvo, @ajorundon, @viking-ventures, @stever82, & @dandays.

I'd like to invite each of them and everyone else to Pimp Your Post, this is another weekly event we run that allows you to promote one of your own posts. We hope that it will allow community members to meet new people and find content that they enjoy.

Thank you for your help in spreading the word last week. Hope that if everyone can tag a couple people they think might enjoy the contest this week again we should see even more new people join in the fun of helping direct some rewards towards some High Quality Undervalued Posts!

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 undervalued 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.

Entry #8

Late start to my steemit week :) Looking forward to reading the entries! Hope you're feeling better @thedarkhorse.


I really wish I was. Each time I start to feel better I take 2 steps backwards. Zpack isn't even kicking this. I'm going to play hockey tonight and see if a good workout will kick it. Played yesterday and felt better for about 14 hours...then right back. Who knows at this point. Maybe I just need to get really drunk to kill off the bad germs. Good thing I have a St Patty party tomorrow night!


Maybe I just need to get really drunk to kill off the bad germs.

That's what I'd start with :) Have fun at your party!


I had flu about 6 years ago... It really did knock me out for a couple of weeks. Sure, the worst of it was over in about two days, but it lingered for awhile.
