Two more well attended sessions. Some excellent posts sparked some interesting convos. Those who attend PYPT not only get to find out about some excellent posts but they participate in the conversations they spark.
Great networking opportunity as well.
At the evening session of PYPT I was pleased to be able to announce the first of four contests.
I’ve received a very kind donation of some STEEM and after some thought, I’m going to run a contest of sorts with it.
Everyone who attends PYPT for the next four weeks becomes the judges for this contest.
I’m asking those who attend to visit each others posts and when you’re done going through them, DM me with the THREE posts you consider to be the best posts that week. Look at content and formatting as part of your decision.
I’ll compile the submissions and arrive at the final choices. You have until 23:59 EDT on Saturday to send your choices to me.
The winners will receive: 1st: 3 Steem, 2nd: 2 Steem and 3rd: 1 Steem in prizes.
And the Winners for August 24th are:
1st — @anutu — A Guy and a Lipstick Part 3 - a long way to go
2nd — @saffisara — Let's get to know @saffisara challenge by @blog-fictions!
3rd — @isaria — Are You Thinking About Leaving Steemit??? Wait.....Don't Gooooooooooooooo!!!
The contest will continue for 3 more rounds. All those who attend PYPT are eligible to nominate posts and all posts presented at PYPT are eligible to be nominated.
Congratulations to all the winners.
This is the replay of the morning session:

The purpose of PYPT is for Steemians to bring along a recent post, share it with the assembled and talk about the post and their blog.
Support the @steemitramble Manual Curation project
I’ve been doing a manual curation project since August 2016. Recently I moved the project to its own account @steemitramble, to continue to work to bring forth quality posts for followers to be able to support. Doing this separates my personal posts from the curation project.
In addition to reading and upvoting the Steemit Ramble and those featured in it, you can support the project and the authors featured in it by:
Delegating even as much as 25 SP to @steemitramble -- this will increase the voting power of the account when it votes on those curated. Delegating is like loaning me some of your Steem Power so I can vote on others posts with a larger vote.
Don’t forget, you can visit the Steemit Ramble discord at anytime. I encourage you to visit the Curation channel where other curators on the platform share their curation posts. You’ll find some excellent posts to read in those curation posts. Pimp Your Post Thursday attendees can add their posts to their own channel.
You can nominate others posts in the #nominate-someones-post channel. If I use your nomination in the Steemit Ramble, a periodic curation post I do, then you can nominate your own posts in #nominate-your-post channel.
There is a growing reference section containing posts of value on the platform and about writing. Writing is a craft and one we want to do well when producing content on the platform
If you are too busy to share, there is a post promotion channel. I might look in there some day. Steemit is about sharing and building community.
