- You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how I track everything!
Optional: Themed 3rd Featured Blogger (New Theme)
New Theme for the Optional Featured Blogger! This week besides your 2 Mandatory Featured Bloggers the bonus Feature spot will be one for someone that has a Pay It Forward Mentality. You can feature any Blogger out there and help share with the community why you feel they are helping Pay It Forward.
You are free to feature those who give back to their local communities, maybe a teacher or active service member, or those who give back to the steemit community here on steemit, but they need to have a recent blog post to be able to link to.
This blogger can be Any Reputation Level! So it's just the opportunity for you to showcase someone who you know is helping Pay It Forward. This is a great way to say thank you to them and write a few nice words letting them know that their efforts are appreciated.
I personally want to thank @surpassinggoogle for stopping by last week's winner announcement post and rewarding all of those who had commented. This gave a nice boost to many of the contestants and the added vote to the post helps offset the drastic drop in post rewards over the last week so all prizes will remain the same. Anyone that has a free witness spot @surpassinggoogle's witness account is @steemgigs. He is someone that has been on my list of witness votes for some time now and worthy of your vote.
👉👉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.
