Week 12 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest
Before we get into week 12's post I wanted to take a minute to thank all the hard work done by those who have in the past entered the PIF Curation Contest. Here is the list of 93 amazing steemians that have taken their time to help Curate and Featured hundreds of deserving blog posts.
@accio, @agmoore, @angelro, @aninamaev, @backpackingchef, @bananamemos, @barski, @bashadow, @bengy, @bjgeese, @bmotives, @buckaroo, @cicisaja, @cuppcake, @davemccoy, @derekfreeman, @digitalmind, @dipoabasch, @dixiesilverminer, @djoi, @donna-metcalfe, @doomsdaychassis, @e-rich, @ecid, @elsiekjay, @energyaddict22, @eventspeaker, @f3nix, @fiberartists, @fitinfun, @freedomshift, @futurefarmers, @ginnyannette, @habeebability, @headchange, @hetty-rowan, @honeysim, @iexplore, @illusion16, @imagendevoz, @insideoutlet, @johndoer123, @josephlacsamana, @jrvacation, @k0wski, @kandywriter, @leeart, @madpotters, @magicalmoonlight, @mariannewest, @me2selah, @mightypanda, @mr-bike, @mtnmeadowmomma, @mysecondself01, @nikema, @permieemmy, @plushzilla, @practicalthought, @psionic-tremors, @pundito, @rentmoney, @reonlouw, @revisesociology, @ridoykhan22, @sams-world, @sanbi, @scrawly, @seanytan, @sherbanu, @soyjohancy, @sue-stevenson, @thaishps, @thehoneys, @thelaundrylady, @tony19r, @trincowski, @triplef, @trudeehunter, @tryskele, @tygertyger, @udywriter, @vcg5000, @victorsilab, @viking-ventures, @vipnata, @wanderlass, @wholeself-in, @wilfredn, @williamgabriel, @wolfhart, @zanoni, @ziggypepper
Each person listed took their time at least once to enter the contest featuring other bloggers to help them gain exposure. Would love to see as many of you come back and make another entry as possible. Right now as a whole steemit is having a slow down probably due to a combination of summer and low steem prices so rewards are "lower". But honestly this is the exact time you need to be earning as much as possible. Your SP payout from posts is higher now then when prices are high and total SP earned should be the real goal.
@pifc account has been created. Everyone should start following @pifc now and if possible please help power up the account. This account will be used to support the contest entries and featured bloggers. More voting power it can grow the more power it will have to help you grow in the future. Please lend a hand when @pifc posts it's Power Up posts over the next few weeks. Any and all support will be greatly appreciated.

👉👉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.
To make it easy to estimate 200 words figure there needs to be 12 lines of content.
Posts from Parley and dmania are not acceptable.
Prizes: Steem Basic Income
This week at least 6 winners are going to get a sponsorship for #steembasicincome!
There will be 1 SBI Sponsorship per 8 entries into the contest on a random basis (minimum of 2).
There will be 4 Judges Choice SBI Sponsorships awarded based the quality of the bloggers you feature in the eyes of our Judges, @tryskele , @lynncoyle1, @energyaddict22, & @wolfhart.

@EsteemApp, not Steemit.com
Post written on @esteemapp which is run by witness @good-karma (a Witness I support). This project will be featured this week most likely, but wanted to give you a heads up now. @esteemapp has some great features and maybe most important to me is the ability to schedule a post.
Besides this benefit the interface is just easier to use. Formatting doesn't need to be done in code so for the average person this makes creating nice flowing posts much easier. Here is their most recent post on tips/features of esteem and at the bottom is a list of other posts related to the features. As you can see there are a ton of features that are currently missing from Steemit.com. Oh and can't forget they have a functioning android and apple app. Anyways more to come on this app including screenshots.
Current Entries - Please Visit!!!
This is the real purpose of this contest, visit these posts and help upvote the bloggers featured. This list will be updated as new entries are added. Please check back during the week!!
