Welcome to Day 6 of the 1ST SteemIt Decathlon! QuickShot #3
Woo Hoo!!!! Finally a Spring day occurred and I could actually sit outside and work on my front porch this afternoon...
As I'm sitting there in the warm sunlight getting my dose of Vitamin D. I'm thinking it would be so nice once all the flowers start to bloom and the buds on the trees open up into leaves.
I look over top of my computer and see some nice Crocuses coming....
And it brings a smile to my heart and warms from the inside tooo...
The reality is the picture is lousy but the back story makes it good...
So the picture isn't worth the thousand words.
So it gave me a great idea, This truly going to be a quickshot!
Before I continue I want to print an apology. When I was making the contest up I went out and looked at about 30 contests on the Steem Platforms and read the TOS / Rules / faqs for all of them. I then modeled and crafted my own contest using common ideas from all over the place. But I did write all my rules from scratch. At least I thought I did.
I was contacted by @apolymask. He informed me that part of a sentence matched his word for word.
This is what he claimed I plagerized "minus the 25% or so that goes to curation." Now I would like to state in my defense that I did write the rules from scratch from an outline I did in Zeus. I certainly did not cut and paste this. But the wording must have been in the back of my mind from having previously read it. And for that I am sorry. I encourage you to try out his contest as well.
