Entry for the Pay-it-Forward Curation Contest - Week 24

in payitforward •  2 months ago

Welcome to the Pay It Forward Curation Contest, sponsored by the PIFC community you will find at @pifc! There you will "meet" a dedicated group of fellow Steemians hard at work on a weekly contest. Our goal is to find and encourage under-valued contributors of great content to our Steem blockchain.

To be selected, your post needs to have a minimum of 200 words of high quality, original content. And your reputation cannot be above 55. Pretty simple!

If you are reading this, perhaps we are looking for or have already found you. 😊

So, let's get started! My two entries for this week are:

Selection #1: @steematlas

As an engineer, my eye is just drawn to certain details. It can sometimes be very concrete, sometimes pretty abstract. But they lead my mind down a certain path and it is always interesting where we end up sometimes!

A case in point is my first selection - @steematlas. I was drawn by the title of his post - Let's talk about Telescopes to check it out, as much out of curiousity, as anything.

Upon opening it, it just looked well organized, as though a lot of effort had gone into it, which led me to want to spend time reading it.

One image from this post:

"What do you think of when you look at the sky for a longtime? Wouldn’t you like to take a closer look at the stars, moon or even the stars?"

With this question, @steematlas starts into telling us a lot about his chosen topic - telescopes!

"The crucial thing is to figure out what exactly you want to see so you can determine the type of telescope you would require so you can explore the superb details in the sky to unravel its numerous mysteries."

Not your everyday topic on Steem, to be sure, but I found this post of @steematlas to be interesting.

Overall, a nice effort from another Steemian who I'm sure would appreciate you stopping by and letting him know!

Selection #2: @prechyrukky

When you are browsing your feed, have you experienced posts that just reach out and grab you? Particularly, if there has been an effective combination of a good title and introductory picture used?

An example, for me, is my second selection - @prechyrukky. I was drawn by the title of her post - THE DEPRESSED SOUL - combined with the picture, to read it.

I'm sure we have all experienced being around depressed people at one point or another. Perhaps we've struggled with depression ourselves. I was drawn to read this post, to find out what she had to say about it. Glad I did!

One image from this post:

(Click the image to visit this post.)

"She was a young beautiful girl, she didn't just got the pretty face but also a beautiful soul
But she keeps dying slowly each day that passes by
Her pains were inner, no one around her could see it
How could they? When she appears so bright and happy to them."



I thought these words captured well what we see in the title - The Depressed Soul. I can't share more than that, as there is a surprise ending!

Again, another under-valued Steemian well worth supporting!

Thank you for investing your time to read through this post. This week we see two examples of the great diversity we have on our Steem blockchain. If you haven't already, please take time to visit the posts highlighted above and encourage our fellow Steemians in their efforts.

All the best to you for a better tomorrow, as we all work together to build our Steem Community! 👍 😊

Respectfully,

Steemian @roleerob

Back home and up before 🌄 (here) @tryskele and catching up a bit.

Thank you for stopping by and supporting these two Steemians. Yes, intentionally very different. Only week two for me, so we'll see if I get settled into some sort of "rhythm" doing this ... 😊

Thank you for all you've done and are doing to make the PIFC Community what it is today. Hope your week is off to a good start!

You've been really busy. You're welcome and I'm sure you'll find a rhythm that works. It took me a couple of weeks then I kept getting things piled on me LOL.

And thanks :) I may be the quiet one but all the little extra goodies are me . My week is off to a great start, I hope yours is too. I've got to get my rhythm back to get voting and such done on time :D

Yes, the week is off to an OK start @tryskele.

"I may be the quiet one but all the little extra goodies are me."

? I'd be interested in knowing more about what this means - "the little extra goodies" Working quietly behind the scenes, to keep it all running smoothly?

Thanks a lot for the selection, I really do appreciate
I hope to be considered

Beautiful Article friend..Well done...

Thanks!

I have visited and supported both of your featured authors. Good choices you got there. That was a courageous move for the second one to talk about her fight for depression.

·

Thank you macoolette! You've done an excellent job of providing well thought out responses, for their encouragement.

I appreciate the investment of your time. I'm sure they will, as well.

Yes, I agree. I think for many, writing like this has its therapeutic value. In having the courage to talk about it, she may serve as a source of inspiration for others, who are having similar struggles.

You're welcome. I just thought that is how we should curate with well thought of replies. :)

I think only a few who have gone through depression would take courage to come out and confess like that so she is a brave one.
