Week 83 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in payitforward •  3 months ago 


No featured tribe this week. Please leave your suggestion for next weeks featured tribe when you post your entry link.

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 65 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 65 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 undervalued (less then $2 earnings at time of featuring) 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 65 or below
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how we track everything
  • You must Upvote and Comment on the posts you are featuring

👉👉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.

Here's my entry for this week... as for tribe suggestion, I'm sure there are a lot like lifestyle, ctp, jahm, steemleo, etc. But in the month that I have been doing this, I noticed a lot of good posts from newbies (or even not so newbies) that lack the correct tagging. That could also be one reason some of them don't get noticed. Just my observation.

Entry #2

Hello, here is my curation post for this week:
I realize that I may not qualify for the contest this time, as all of the posts and bloggers I mentioned are way beyond the limit for the @pifc. That's okay, though. I still mentioned you guys, and next week I'll get back to curating underappreciated posts.

Thanks for the mention, but these aren't bloggers that need the extra support, but supported you for your continued efforts. Looking forward to your entry next week.
