Power House Creatives (aka "Steemit Bloggers")

One of the top contenders for the prize is an organization near and dear to my heart: Power House Creatives, which is the new incarnation of @steemitbloggers.

I've been a member of this group for along time, and have found it to definitely be the most supportive and active community group I have come across in our ecosystem... and I have been part of quite a few!

What makes it unique is the dedication of founders @jaynie and @zord189 who maintain exceptionally tight membership standards, as a result of which this community has grown into a true community support organization, rather than "just another upvote circle jerk."

As much as anything, Power House Creatives is about building successful long-term community members. Which is something we desperately need here, given our small huge "problem" with inactive accounts.

David Slew Goliath?

Technically speaking, our little group should have no chance here, but it's testament to the group's level of community support and involvement that — as I write these words — we are running a narrow third to much larger organizations... all accomplished through pure determination and community rallying.

In fact, several of the other participating organizations in the contest who are now out of the running have thrown their support behind our group.

Currently, our bid to win this delegation is backed by (among others):

@voronoi & @hansikhouse, founders of @sndbox
@paradise-found, founder of @gratefulvibes
@scrooger, founder of @qurator
@mariannewest, founder of @freewritehouse
@danieldoughty, founder of @steemxp
@alaikaabdullah, driving force behind the #indonesia tag

But Why Should YOU Care?

In order for Steemit and the Steem Blockchain — as a whole — to succeed and grow in the long run, we must have a strong community of active users to help with onboarding and giving encouragement to newcomers... to help build long term engagement.

What good is saying we "have a million members" if only 40,000 of them ever show up?

A vote for Power House Creatives ( @steemitbloggers) is a vote for there to be a better Steem ecosystem in the future.

I doesn't mean you have to be a member of the group, it just means you're willing to cast a vote for us all to keep growing.

Now you might be thinking "10K SP isn't very much... what difference can that make?" To a small but growing organization with a proven track record, A LOT. It means more support to a wider group of people... and that's something we need here.

We want people to join and say "I became part of the Steem ecosystem and it was cool!" and NOT the more like current situation of "it was disappointing."

THAT is why you should care.

That, and because you want the price of Steem to rise again. You DO want that, don't you?

And — as it has turned out — even though we narrowly missed winning the official poll, we still ended up winning the delegation, in a different way!

·

Yes! We won in lots of ways! Not just the generous 6 month delegation, but also @jaynie showed Steem we are a FORCE! There can't be anyone on this platform that doesn't know about us. That is a massive WIN. #PowerHouseCreatives rule

Thank you so so much!!!!!

Let's make this happen!

As I said on Twitter, I voted early on for @actifit which I Love! But I'm Really Impressed by this Power House Creatives @steemitbloggers community and I think it will be great for Steemit. So I'll ReSteem and Tweet this, for a little support. Good Luck!

Thanks for the support @kenny-crane! @steemitbloggers is a great example of Steemit "community spirit," a quite small group but with a very wide reach. A good positive example to point to when someone asks what's good about this ecosystem.

From everything I've seen of them, I believe you are correct! 👍😃

You have said it perfect! Thank you @denmarkguy for this wonderful writeup of the community!

·

Thanks @zord189... we have a great little community, and we have a LOT of "reach," given our fairly modest membership size.

Sounds like @steemitbloggers is a perfect choice and I hope that it will win and I'm all for it.

Doing everything we can! It would be quite something for our little group to pull this one off!
