|Today's publication is by far my most important one yet of this year. It may be longer than my usual posts but I would absolutely appreciate your time and support, my dear readers. |
(if you're in rush then please just skip to "SUMMARY" section )
As usual I reply to all comments.
The other day, a friend of mine introduced me to an amazing contest organized by witness @theycallmedan. The idea behind his initiative is simple but brilliant. Readers were asked to nominate a few projects on Steemit platform, which they believe deserve extra attention and support.
Every community project which will go through an initial selection (round 1) will receive 1000 SP delegation.
Winner of the second round (starting today) will receive 20k SP delegation for the period od of 1 year.
HOW AMAZING IS THAT?
AM I BEING GREEDY OR NAIVE?
|picture source||I can only imagine how benefitial it would be for our small community if I could continue my work on this platform and support quality content with stronger upvotes.|
Many of you know me long enough to notice, that I engage a lot with people (mostly those sharing similar values and passion towards blockchain technology) and I upvote pretty much every valuable comment I'm reading. Having extra 20k delegation would surely help us all. This I'm pretty sure off.
But I still need to ask myself a few simple questions: am I not being too greedy? Would winning this contest be even a real possibility? Maybe. I hardly doubts so. Even with the current support I would probably end up as 2nd or 3rd, which would not benefit anyone. Neither me or anyone from our community.
So I came up with an idea. Please spare few minutes and continue reading :)
|pic source||Perhaps what I came up with isn't really that "revolutionary" as I would like to think, but I figured out that ... |
instead of "fighting with other competitors" I could build an alliance with other Steemit community.
One of those participating in the contest. One that I believe in and I want to support with all my heart .
Alliance build on trust, which would serve one purpose: merging and growing both communites even more. So the idea is simple: Instead of asking my supporters for their votes, I would build a new healthy connection with either @SteemitBloggers or @SteemChurch and help one of them win.
After all: is there any better way of establishing a strong alliance by building trust between us?I strongly believe that by "giving up the fight" and investing my time to promote other projects I will prove my good will. I wonder if it even make sense for you guys?
I would really like to hear what you think about my approach, as it is constantly a learning process for all of us. Sharing your thoughts and feedback would help me greately to progress in the future.
BUILDING ALLIANCES WITH VENEZUELIAN COMMUNITIES
|Initially, I contacted representatives of @steemitbloggers and offered them my support. |
My second thought was to get familiar with the efforts and work being done by the amazing Venezuelian community @steemchurch. I received a very warm welcome and talking to their CEO was very refreshing and brought a smile on my face. @emiliocabrera is such a positive and encouraging person. Someone really worth knowing.
My vision and goals are quite simple and straight forward:
I see huge potential of using the Steemit platform to benefit a great amount of people in real life. I'm in touch with a group of over 40 Venezuelans already and introducing them to @steemchurch could potentially help some of them (after all it's locally strong community of Christians in Venezuela).
On the other hand I will gladly get to know members of their Venezuelian community who share similar passion towards blockchain technology, crypto, economy etc. And I will do my best to help them grow (let's take them under "our" wings).
(and please do not worry, I'm not trying to sell anything to anyone :)
WIN-WIN scenario for everyone involved. That's how I see it anyway :)
FEW WORDS ABOUT @STEEMCHURCH COMMUNITY
It's a real photo!
|SteemChurch is a Venezuelian christian community using the Steemit platform in order to reach out to other people sharing mostly common interest and faith towards God and his creations.|
Important Note: It is crutial to underline that at this stage,
I'm by no means a religious person and I would NEED TO ASK EVERYONE to avoid religious comments under this post. I respect all minorities and religions out there, but my wish is to avoid this very sensitive topic. I hope everyone can understand and respect this.
Their founder and CEO are not very "tech savy" but seem to have great heart. So I believe that with my skills and knowledge this alliance can go really far.
|pic source||I would love to share one more awesome news. |
My dear friend @achim03 (he represents @help.venezuela community, which also received solid amount of nominations) will join our alliance and support our efforts.
How amazing is that? Combining our efforts could potentially give @steemchurch a chance to win that competition. Be part of it and join us! :)
Let's see if our projects combined can actually work together. I chosed to believe that we can.
SUMMARY / SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
|If you value my efforts and you agree with what Im trying to achieve, then please visit this link below and vote on @STEEMCHURCH. |
Let's help them to win that 20k delegation.
Many of you (dear readers) know me already for quite some time and have witnessed a number of my efforts and work I did to help our little community grow. I promote quality content (mostly crypto related) and I'm constantly looking for valuable content creators who need help with building their exposure and presence on the Steemit platform.
I would greately appreciate if you could also drop a comment below and perhaps consider RESTEEMing this post, so I could reach larger audience.
One more time link to contest:
Thank you everyone,
