**Closed** Lucky 13! Week 13 of Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in payitforward •  5 months ago

So many people have superstitions about numbers, black cats, and so forth. To me I've always found going against the grain of the masses helps me succeed. While many view 13 as an Unlucky Number, to me it's always been one I like as others don't. Right now to go against the grain I'm buying more BTC today which then will be used to buy more Steem once it clears in 2 weeks. Can't tell you how many times I said "I wish I had bought more Steem when it was around $1." Well here is that opportunity and I plan to capitalize on it.

Anyways onto the reason you are here, Week 13 of the Pay It Forward Curation Contest! New theme for the Bonus Featured Blogger, but if you want to use this theme across all Featured Blogger that would be fun too. 100% up to you on that part.

Optional: Themed 3rd Featured Blogger (New Theme)

This week for the Optional 3rd Featured Blogger the theme will be Artist Based. So any blog post that is music, creative writing, drawing, photography, or any other form of Art and there are no restrictions on the Reputation Score for the Optional Blogger, just find us a Quality Post to View!

Week 13 Rules (No Changes From Week 12)

For week 13 you will need a curation style entry that includes 2 High Quality Original Content Blog Posts from Level 50 or Below Bloggers.

  • Curation Style Post of 2 Bloggers who are posting Quality Original Content
  • Link to 1 recent blog post per featured blogger. 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 Must Be Rank 50 or Lower!
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how I track everything!

👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content. We want to see 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.

Very much looking forward to seeing the great bloggers everyone finds this week!

Know that post payouts are low these days, but notice how large the SteemPower part of your payout is. This is really the thing that matters as this will allow all of us to have bigger upvotes once the price of steem rises again.

Earn Steem and Purchase Steem now and look back when we are at $3 saying "I'm glad I bought back when it was $1.30" instead of sitting there saying "I whish I had bought some when it was $1.30"

Cheers to another week! You managed to get this post and the @pifc post out, and your wife is still away haha

In my wanderings last week as judge, I think I have a few who may show up as entries this week. Fingers crossed :)

Looking forward to another successful week!

·

I was 2 minutes late for the second post, not to bad.

Might be worth dropping those people a note on one of their posts. I never trust that someone actually has GINA set up so tagging them doesn't always work.

·
·

@thedarkhorse, I actually just gave them the link to your post :) Step ahead of you buddy!

There's no shame in 2 minutes by the way; well, maybe a little haha

·
·
·

Thanks for being on top of things!

·
·

pfft... I have GINA setup. I added names I want to keep track of and anytime my name is mentioned in a post, but I ALWAYS go through my replies. I am hoping the for the same too. Really trying to encourage the features to give this a go :)

·

Cheers indeed. He is an expert juggler that one. He manages just as fine :D

and here is my entry for the contest this week.
https://mspsteem.com/payitforward/@dipoabasch/pay-it-forward-curation-contest-week-13-hard-work-not-lucky

I still need to add this, If I win another SBI this week... add it to @pifc too.
not because I don't need it for myself.. but in my condition, that's the only way to pay it forward for everything I got from this communtiy. Thank you

Entry #8

I feel bad, missed this last night.

For those that aren't using esteem (you are missing out on votes from esteem and good-karma) here is the steemit link:
https://steemit.com/payitforward/@dipoabasch/pay-it-forward-curation-contest-week-13-hard-work-not-lucky

·
·

That's OK.. I've been voted by him and the team sometimes ago😁 because I've been using esteem from the first day I started and I can see that they voted and how much I got from that paid out. They have standard on voting I think. Right now, their attention are to the user of esteem surfer (desktop version) which I can't set it up for now, I am not to busy to observe something like that 😂

Thank you... Number 8 is not a lucky number for the Chinese feng shui 🍀

·
·
·

I hadn't heard that there was any preference on what way you were posting, mobile vs desktop. But it's possible. Have asked someone that I think will know.

Sorry #8 isn't a good number, hope that it works out for you anyways.

·
·
·
·

It works with mobile once, you know the most users for esteem mobile apps were from Indonesia and Nigeria 😁, their votes were helping me to reach the 40 rep score within 3 months when none knows me or appreciate my posts.

Esteem surfer is a new baby from the team, a couple weeks ago, I was one in their curation trail to vote, because not so many users know that. But I keep up with the news and then realise, I can't be always on the lists though I use the app all the time, so.. I just exploring another apps to understand the benefits of it. I use the mspsteem to get vote from minnowsupport, but I can see some flaws now. I have been trying busy.org too. I even have the steepshot app too😊

That's OK with number 8, it's just number... Like 13 or 1, it won't bother me at all. Thanks for your attention @thedarkhorse.

·
·

Number 8 is not a lucky number for the Chinese feng shui 🍀[my edits]

Remember the Olympics? China so wanted it because of the opening date:

August 8, 2008 = 8-8-8 the best possible combination of '8'

in Chinese, 8 sounds like the word for "prosperous".

·
·
·
·

Thank you for correcting my mistakes, I must be distracted by the 4 fold. I am not Chinese but I appreciate their wisdom. 🙏

·
·

If I win another SBI this week... add it to @pifc too.

I'll match his SBI, IF ...

·

I'll match yours, IF ...

·
·

what about me??? can I ask that for my birthday gift...LOL

·
·
·

no, you may not ...

Because, you do not have to:

Entry #10

·

Although a big vote, biggest that I can give, this is not the birthday present ...

·
·

I am just kidding before, thinking of how you support me and the others through ccc and keep reminds me to power up.. is a very blessed gift, I will pay it forward.

·
·
·

1 SBI is for you to keep, and 1 STEEM is for you to decide.
Happy birthday!

·
·
·
·

I'll power up..uhmmm, another SBI perhaps. Ahhh power up will be better. THANK YOU for the birthday wish and gifts👐

·

Entry #11

·
·

Thank you, I was not late.

Yes yes, on board for the SBI sponsorship and also a coming curation....

Let's see how many people this week can totally stump me again?? When you're stuck between 3 people and keep re-reading, I think you start to go a little crazy.

Last week overall, you guys did awesome that it was even hard to get it narrowed down. I wish I could vote for all of you participate and do more... someday when I have evolved from plankton poo...
Keep up the amazing work and don't be afraid to spread the word and encourage your features and friends to give it go for a week or 2 or even once a month.

I'm glad to say one of my recent candidates was picked up by @curie! 😀

It's cool when you find someone that is good enough they get picked by Curie.

Here is my entry for this week:

Will be going back to comment and upvote in a sec...

Oh, I was trying to use esteem this morning for this entry, but it kept having this error... :-(
It worked for my book post though, so weird...

·
·

If you haven't updated your version to the newest I was told a lot of the little posting bugs got fixed. I have been scheduling the post for 2 minutes out when it won't let me post...almost every time right now. But was told this issue was fixed in the new version.

·
·
·

I updated yesterday. This was the first time I couldn't post since I started using it. I'll try that scheduling thing if I run into it again.
My first post today posted fine.

·
·
·

I guess I wasn't the only one - new version again this morning! Hopefully, that bug is fixed.
Well... no idea if that bug is fixed because I'm now in a constant login loop... So, it's definitely not working for me this morning!

Glad to see so many quick entries. Hope we see it get to 15 or more for this week.

My first entry for #payitforward contest and I hope it will be indeed the lucky 13:

Brought to you by @tts. If you find it useful please consider upvoting this reply.

Almost my followers are bot i think :D but i am trying to catch up some who post quality content. I hope i can get some. As far i observe many good content writer disappointed by posting quality post with no response from human. Hope your project will help those.

·

I think that looking outside your followers is the best thing to do. If you find someone who is undervalued and bring them exposure they will be grateful. Make sure to tell them you have done this and show them a link to your post. Maybe you gain a new follower, a human one! Plus as they grow and you both follow each other you will both gain. You help them grow and in return they help you. Once you have done this with enough people you start to have your own little community and life gets easier in terms of earning a little without paying for votes.

·
·

Thats really a nice idea. Thanks for sharing your experience :)

epic bro 😹

Good morning and happy to see this post and I believe I could make my nomination on time.

BTW, I think there is small correction needed...(Week 12 t 13 and 11 to 12) Please check..

Week 12 Rules (No Changes From Week 11)

Nice catch! Was in a rush after writing the @pifc Account Builder Post and then needed to try and make the time slot for this one and missed that. Thanks for pointing it out and look forward to your entry!

·

Ok.. I know something like that ..also I know people like you time must be a luxury that to be utilized cleverly..carry on..

Awesome! 👍🏻

@thedarkhorse has set 3.000 SBD bounty on this post! logo_for-light-bg_1000.png
What is a bounty exactly?

A bounty is money sent to a post to be distributed to the users commenting on it. It provides a way to reward users directly and works in addition to the steem/sbd they receive from the blockchain. It works independently of SteemPower.

You create a bounty by sending any amount of sbd/steem to @steem-bounty together with a post-url in the memo.

How can I earn a bounty Users are then competing for the bounty by writing their answers to the post in comments that will achieve upvotes from the community and especially the bounty creator. The money of the bounty gets distributed to all top level comments of the post at the same time when the post is paid out (7 Days after it was written). How much everyone gets depends on the votes the comments received. The sender of the bounties votes are weighted higher so that she decideds where 80% of the bounty money goes and all other votes determine the rest.

@steem-bounty does all of this for you automatically. You can use this service to automatically pay out a challenge, ask a hard question or simply to reward the people that interact with you.

Read more about how it works, even in different languages here.
