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

in pifc •  5 months ago

I love finding new under-valued Steemians and this contest is a great excuse to find fabulous bloggers whose post aren't getting the attention they deserve. In case you aren't aware, the Pay It Forward Curation Contest is a weekly challenge from @pifc to find bloggers to promote.

If you want to know some of the things I look for when curating for Pay-it-Forward, please check out this article on How to Get Curated.

Here are this week's selections - reputation 55 or under.

Selection 1 - @wilnonis (rep 31)

Digital pupper drawing process, tutorial, tips

I am (literally) about to assign this piece of art to my daughter for homeschool today. She loves to draw, but never likes the how-to-draw articles she finds. This one is very different!

Anyone can follow this great step-by-step instructional piece by @wilnonis! I look down his blog and see lots of high-quality artistic posts! (I got an art post this week, @trincowski!!)

Selection 2 - @zyzymena (rep 49)


Strangely, for someone who does a lot of fiction writing, I rarely feature the fiction of others. Today is a change.

I love this piece for its cultural value as well as the story she is telling. I've never experienced African life, so I love listening to someone else give me the experience I may never have.

When I look at her blog, I see she posts on many different subjects, which is great! I hope she keeps up her writing as an expression of her culture.

These are my selections for this week. Please visit them and give them some love - even if you don't have voting power to spare, a kind word can make all the difference!

hay @viking-ventures epic finds, well done. this is a strong entry to the pifc contest. enjoyed reading this post and your featured authors.


Thank you so much.

Thank you so much @viking-ventures, im really humbled by this. You are doing a wonderful job. We need more people like you on the steemit platform.


You are very welcome! This is the point of the contest - you'd be very welcome to join in with an entry of your own!

Thanks for the entry. Have upvoted both of the bloggers.

Without doubt your #payitforward is one of my favourite reads @viking-ventures! You find such gems. I love the step by step art lesson. I am saving that piece of fiction for a cup of tea and a short break. It'll be an interesting read, coming from Africa myself. Once again - great post!


Thanks for stopping by! Yes, the pay-it-forward post is one of my favorites every week as well.

I have visited and supported both of your featured authors. The second one has a very interesting story. 😊


You're welcome.

Awesome post, @viking-ventures! 😃

I have upvoted both and I will be following @wilnonis.


Thanks. I knew you'd like the art post! My daughter did an okay Paint sketch following it. I hope she'll practice a bit more so that maybe I can share it...

Lovely picks as usual @viking-ventures 😉 love both of featured bloggers post. Done my part to support them and I wish that I could as good as your eyes to find great writters😊


Thanks. Good to hear from you again.
I think I'm just lucky to find them when I do.

Oh, we're looking for more ASAPers if you'd be interested in joining our initiative. In particular we are looking for someone bilingual... so, I thought of you immediately. Check us out at @asapers if you haven't already.


Oohh thank you @viking-ventures , I'll check it out when I feel a bit free from preparing to welcome my father in law next week.

Great choices! Upvoted both steemians

Dropping by and supporting your post. I visited and upvoted both of your entries into this week’s contest @viking-ventures.

With very limited time and to avoid what happened to me last week, I wanted to be sure and take the first step in showing support, prior to the expiration of Steem’s 7-day limit for payouts. As time allows, I will try to get back to provide you more personalized input on your entries.

Thank you for your effort here in support of our growing PIFC Community!

You just planted 0.05 tree(s)!

Thanks to @viking-ventures

Plant trees with @treeplanter and get paid for it!

Thanks a lot!

OMG woman what on earth am I going to do with you?? LOL, both were really good and @zyzymena's story I was glued to my screen.


Obviously, you're going to give me a judge's choice award... :-p
In the mean time, sounds like you need a good supply of superglue remover.
(Don't go looking at my book now... I just queued up the final chapters of the Birth of the Neví and am trying to quickly finish the rest of the work I need for Brighid's Blood... If you do look at it, you're going to need a lot more of that remover stuff.)


The parts I have read, yes I am 😁I am just going to have put Fiery Cross down (Let the Frasers have a little rest) and just get reading.
