Wow. I was planning on writing to you later actually, you have been on my mind again today.

Well as you know, I was run over by a car and basically disabled -- and due to my activism the state is burying my file. Presumably due to my very public activism against state related police/political corruption.

The police and hospital and politicians are interfering/ignoring me, in this and it is ruining me and they know what that they are doing.

I have just recently started being able to actually get out of the house and around (with help) and Steemfest is only a dream for me, physically and $$ wise so this post lifted my spirits.

Just to have a chance for a guy that does not travel or cannot do much these days -- is nice.

You are a good whale my friend. Us 99 %'ers need people like you on our side.

Thank you.

Amazing story! I truly hope all goes well with your medical file and that you do get to go to Steemfest one day! Good luck!! =]

·
·

Well that is very kind of you to say!

Thanks very much for the encouragement, we all need it some days.

·
·
·

Would love to know what happens. I would like to say the usual "if there is anything I can do...", but to be honest I don't think there is much I could do. Police/political corruption in America is quite out of my field of expertise. =]

Looking forward to meeting you, Barry! I hope it will be at Steemfest 2--won't that be awesome???

It would be a good story and show we really do care for each other here, there have been a lot of very nice stories here in this community the last year!!

i hope you win Barry! long time supporters of you over here ! you derserve it for all the things you have done for this community! Go get them tiger lol :P !

·

Hey, man! Looks like we'll be seeing eachother at SF2! niceeeee congrats!

Awesome, thank you for the opportunity! One of my favorite things about Steemfest is the outpouring of generosity in bringing the community together 💛

I was blessed to attend Steemfest the First in Amsterdam, and I'm sure almost everyone in attendance would agree that it was one of the best weekends in all of life! I want to see how @roelandp tops his incredible self with Steemfest 2 in Lisbon. I also want to share my wealth of yoga knowledge with everyone who wants to play or needs relief of any kind!!!

I want to attend Steemfest 2 with my travel buddy @everlove and (hopefully!) @quinneaker. @everlove has already been generously gifted a plane ticket by @theprophet0, @aggroed, and @steemfestdreams. I will do everything I can to get there as well while keeping my expenses as low as possible.

I live in the most sustainable ecovillage I know about, the @gardenofeden, because it is the most righteous cause I have found thus far in life. I don't shop at stores, go to movies, eat at restaurants, or go on trips; instead, I dedicated all my resources towards helping others through our outreach. I witness the living example of how much can be accomplished, how many lives can be profoundly changed, how deeply the Earth can be affected when we work together, so I choose to donate my time, energy, and wicked money making skillz to the @gardenofeden.

I would be so thankful to the Steemit community for sending me to Steemfest 2! By keeping my costs as low as possible for this pilgrimage, more people are served as I will have more to direct towards helping others!

We feed tens of thousands of free meals a year, save hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash from the landfill, house hundreds of people who need a real chance at life, and offer hope to people across the world that a better way is possible! It is amazing and satisfying to be part of conscious evolution!!! We exist to inspire, and I want to bring the real life example of our epic success to the powerful community at Steemfest 2. We are all blazing trails in the revolution!!

·

It sounds like you have experience with the last Steemfest and know what to expect, and could possibly get the most out of the trip along with your travel buddies.
On a side note it would be great if you could blog about the experience and even share a post on your last one. Voted!

·

my grandpa was born in Amsterdam and I am American in Vietnam

·

Miss Sara --- you have done such great things and been so nice to all of us here for so long....

I won this trip and that is a miracle for me.

But @joseph is having a round 2 winner now on top!!! Check his post from today!!

·
·

Hooray for miracles!!!! You too have been such an excellent supporter, it's great that you are getting the opportunity to be part of Steemfest! Thank you for the heads up, that's very thoughtful of you~*~

·
·
·

It is NP. I mentioned it to a couple people here, we can do more together I always figure.

(:

You are welcome Miss Sara.

Simply put, I want to go to Steemfest because I'm in crypto from 2013 and never met someone who is as passionate as I am. It would be great to meet people in person an share great excitement about Steem.

I would love to cover this event and do it justice by providing the solid kind of coverage it deserves! This is what I do at Press For Truth and those who are familiar with my work can and will hopefully vouch for me! By sending me everyone will receive something in return because I'll be working my butt off to produce videos, interviews, live coverage on Youtube, twitter updates and anything else I can get while there! Thank you Joseph for this opportunity, I hope the Steemit community will get behind me so PFT can do it up right!

·

If it were up to me, you would be given a ticket @pressfortruth. You (Dan) are the whole reason that MANY of us joined Steemit 10 months ago. I watched your video and as soon as I was finished, I made a Steemit account. Pretty much left FB instantly and haven't looked back.
I have been following your YouTube channel for years and I can attest to how hard you have worked to bring the truth about world issues to the people.
Thank you for helping me to change my life. You get 100% of my voting power. ;)

I won the trip to Portugal for SteemFest 2!! -- thanks for your support everyone!

Wow

I am glad to see more people joining in crowdfunding trips to SteemFest this year. Now that some people with real stake are starting to do it, my little campaign feels kinda silly.

Well done. In one post, you have gotten more support than I have been able to raise in several posts this SteemFest and last years. I started the @steemfestdreams account last year and have never made any reward myself except of course followers that I have gained.

All of the rewards that my posts raised have gone into making dreams come true for Steemians. We bought a few tickets and made a few donations but never as big as 1000 SBD!

I really want to go SteemFest this year

I am planning on making it to Portugal, but at this point I have not figured out how to fund my trip. I have raised funds for others but not for myself and I am taking care of my father who is very sick and close to the end. So I am not sure how everything will play out.

The STEEM that I have earned over the past 10 months is now worth more money than I have ever had in my life. I don't quite feel right asking to win this contest if it can go to a more deserving person who needs more assistance. If I have to, I could use some of my STEEM to get there. It's kind of a difficult decision though as that is my life savings at this point and I want to continue to grow it.

If you have read of all of this, thank you for taking the time to listen. Today has been a stressful day and it helped to just type all this out. Thank you

·

Karma is on your side @richardcrill --I'm sure you will be supported as you have so generously supported others!!! Blessings~*~

·
·

Thank you @saramiller

·
·
·

You're welcome. You're a great Steemian!!

·

You simply must go to SteemFest this year @richardcrill. Steemit needs access to your mind. :)

·
·

Awe, you're too kind Rebecca

·

my brother's name is Richard: hope you win, Rick: I'm Dutch

·
·

Thanks Joe!

·

Richard, you have done such great things and been so nice to all of us here for so long....

I won this trip and that is a miracle for me.

But @joseph is having a round 2 winner now on top!!! Check his post from today!!

·

did you see my entry !? Haha im hoping to be your travel companion ! LOL !👍👍👍😂😂😂

Dear Steemit community,
I could not attend last year's Steemfest but made a promise to myself that I would make the next Steemfest come hell or high water.

You may know me as the host of Steemit Open Mic, a weekly, live music venue contest in its 38th week now and sponsored by @pfunk. We give 300 steem each week to Steemit musicians who enter the contest and it is growing bigger each week.

So why should you choose to send me to Steemfest?

  1. I will pay it forward and if selected I will help send one musician from Open Mic to Steemfest too. I'll match the offer made in this post to help someone else go to Steemfrst this year.

  2. If possible and the organizers allow, we, meaning me and the other selected musician, will play some songs at Steemfest.

  3. I will post about the whole experience and make sure everyone knows the story of how we got to Steemfest.

  4. I will be forever grateful.

So, if you select me you're really sending 2 people to Steemfest. If your $1000 SBD contribution became $2000 that would have more of an impact and makes for a great story for the Steemit community.

Please consider choosing to help send me to Steemfest this year and let's get this party started!

Thumbs up for your generosity.

This is a great idea.

I have been blogging here on Steemit since last year, when I was turned on to the platform by a video created by @piedpiper.

I don't really want to "advertise" myself, but Steem has been a "dream come true" for me in that, as someone who has always written and created content, payout or not, I am finally paid for my ideas, which is what I am truly passionate about--ideas--and the efforts I make of my own self-interest to make the world a more voluntary place.

Right after I started Steem I had to leave my job,

and Steemit.com helped me to pay my bills for about a month and a half of unemployment. This was absolutely unreal to me, but real all the same, because I always felt that what I had to say had value to someone. First and foremost to me, as without expression I do not know how I could survive and thrive, and secondly to the neat folks who have resonated with what I say over the years and supported this self-expression.

You can read my introductory post here, and all about how I lost my old "job" here.

It is my hope, dream, and now practical goal to turn "Steeming" into a lifestyle, and going to this event in Lisbon would mean the world to me.

Thank you.

Wait a sec... these are spam posts @shanzaylizay ... Such a shame. I'd really re-evaluate what you're doing here on Steemit if you'll be sending the same bullshit comments (if you just look through the thread and comment history) :/

·

may your dreams continue to happen and come true with flying colors in a blaze of glory and honor and all that jazz and fly me to the moon

I missed SteemFest last year due to medical thing but I believe I am in better health now to come and meet you guys. I will most likely keep engagement going offline as well since I enjoy good debates. I will also be bringing my g/f so if I win I will share the winnings with her.

haha dude you earn enough to buy your own ticket ;)

·
·

I will bring another person with me. maybe two :)

I am looking forward to seeing new people and of course all the other guys from Steemfest 1...

I couln't affort to go to SteemFest last year, but I wanted to very badly... I been posting almost everyday since august 2016 and I just love the community...

I have done Steem promotion in the streets of Copenhagen and I tell people about Steemit on a daily basis...

I am planning to do more videos for my posts in the near future, might try to do some videos with local people and see their reaction to hearing about Steemit.

·

fantastic

I rarely win stuff, i have gone through life competing and always ending up second or third or not anywhere onbthe top list. I really never knew what made others special and not me because i worked twice as hard as everyone else. I have written on two occasions how i wish i could represent my country on steemfest this year and I've seen several All paid trip competitions but because of my failure when it comes to luck i never tried.

I would really love to win and have the pleasure of joining steemfest this year and if I'm not lucky i will try raise some money to come.

If I'm lucky.

the under dog and mighty mouse and the Cubs coming back for revenge

I'm a YouTuber living in Poland, so not too far away from good ol' Lisbon! I've been here on Steemit since I first got introduced to it, about 2 months back. Ever since then I've posted a few videos about it, happily gained over 400 followers and am earning quite well due to the fluctuations of Steem on Poloniex and just through curating/creating content.

I've been looking for ways to further my online reach and this was a perfect platform to work with. I'm currently working to create a new YT channel for Steemit, or at least host a plethora of videos on my current channel with 16K and just do a daily/weekly show here. The videos would be most likely only for Steemit (unlisted if on AVILSD) so I hope that would help with marketing.

I'd love to go to Steemfest, I think it'd be a wonderful opportunity to connect with people and maybe catch a few videos about it all. I see a bright future in Steemit and I'd love to help promote! The people I brought over from my channel were happy when the prices went up, and now after HF19 I'm sure they're promoting it themselves too to their family members and friends! Out of all the platforms I'm on, I've slowly been shifting more and more time here. As of next week, I'll be working most likely full-time to try and expand my audience here :) thank you for the opportunity, Steemit!

Thanks mate :) hope to see good content coming from you

Winning the trip to Steemfest II would be an amazing birthday gift being that November is my birthday month. 😁
It would be great to be part of steemfest II because I truly believe in the long term success of Steem and Steemit and for it to be bigger than all prior social media. I would like to be there to learn, help with the success of Steemit in the way that I'm able to, be with like minded people, perhaps share ideas that can be beneficial and of course have much fun. Thank you for this great opportunity. Much Love, Peace and Blessings (((3j)))

Well, thank you very much. I'll take an extra early birthday wishes 😊. Have a great day, much love, peace and blessings.

I would love to go there because I really believe in this platform and the community that is creating.
Then, because 1 November is my birthday (23 years old and no money :p) and it would be a dream to win something that can combine SteemFest-Lisbon and my birthday.
Cheers and good luck to everyone!

·

happy early birthday, kid

good picture that you show in this steemit,Very interesting, I've never seen pictures like this, I'm sure many people love and vote this photo, plus more background photos, very interesting photo frames, really amazing, the picture quality is very okay

Its really funny. I actually hadnt thought of going to the steamfest until now. I know steemit is not in Africa especially in Ghana. I am one of the earliest adopters of this platform and have been trying my best to bring more people, more likely investors to this platform. I just really will love to come for the steemfest so that i can stand in for Africa well. Know more about steemit and more. I think its high time more Africans come and contribute to this community. Looking at the time i joined this community, i might not be the perfect pick but i hope you consider me in your selection so that i can make Africa proud with your help.

I love the joy and the way people dance in Africa

I've been planning to go this year's steemfest i have even started saving some money towards it! I would really love to be there this year and because this message should be directed to steemit community, guys i hope you give me this opportunity i would be forever grateful.

Hello Steemians!

I am a 28 year old sensible American who has never been west of Philadelphia or East of Puerto Rico. I have never left the US and always wondered what Europe and the world would be like to experience.

Over the past few months I have been engaged with this beautiful blockchain technology and the endless possibilities it presents our world. I would love a chance to meet contacts within the community, and I am also 50% Portuguese and would be able to visit family I have never met in the most authentic setting imaginable! Being on my own exploring new scenery, family, technology and connections.

Thank you all for your time you spent reading this post, it is greatly appreciated! I hope everyone has a great day and cheers to the winner!

Hello Steemit Community

I can imagine by now you have had to read through hundreds if not thousands of comments on this post asking for what we all really want! What we want is the amazing opportunity to visit all our newly discovered friends for the platform we call home Steemit. So yeah I thought for the sake of the readers and the community short and sweet is the answer! Basically I would love to go to meet all the names I see up and down my feed in real life (flesh and bone) and I would love to learn more about Steem and how they plan on progressing further!

Thank you for the opportunity,

Gingenetwork 😊

Wow I never thought we could some good people like @joseph, steemfest has been one of the best platform for organising seminar for fellow Steemians to meet new members so that they can have discussing with great members of this community. It can enhance thought, motivation, education.

Wow this is such a cool prize for who ever wins it, and this is just another reason stew it is the best thing to happen to the internet and block chain..
Since I've been here (just a week now) I've felt nothing but love and support from everyone on here

Your gift is proof of the caring and love steemit is all about

Thank you for giving me the chance

I would love the opportunity to go to steemfest as I am a self confessed technophobe and I don't get much of this cyber world....I could do with the education!. Your gift wouldn't be wasted on me for the following reasons:
I bring nothing but positivity to Steemit
I post so much my family have forgotten who I am
I use my blog to promote my writing through other social networks
I am super friendly and thankful for any opportunity
I am a mature student studying creative writing and philosophy. This would really help my studies
Finally....Lisbon is on my list of places to visit!

I would love to attend the SteemFest II in order to do a full "Unpopular Opinion Puffin Interview" series live in Lisbon with a bunch of people ..

Unpopular Opinion Puffin Interview #2 with the new 🐋 Whale @htooms in town

Unpopular Opinion Puffin Interview with Steemit's Ned and Dan

.. to network, meet Steemian friends, discuss further ideas , to have fun, to discuss possible improvements, submit suggestions on what I think Steemit could make more attractive.

Here's why I'd like to go to steemfest II . . .

Steemfest I was amazing. I as in the first not I as in me . . . I mean I was pretty amazing too but we're here to talk about steemfest!

I had no idea it would be so amazing but I was so excited by this social media revolution that I wanted to meet the people behind the name tags. There was no disappointment. It exceeded my expectations immensely. It really showed just how much positive energy and motivation was pushing steem forward.

Forget about the money for a minute. Steemit has done so much for my life. I am learning new things and getting involved in an industry that could be 10 times as revolutionary as the internet. I have started building a brand with another steemian that I hope will become our source of living some day. I'm even relocating to pursue those dreams just 6 weeks before steemfest.

Because of this we're trying to fundraise with our low budget content to get to america and start a series of videos that will make cryptocurrency much easier to digest and much tastier to the not-so-nerdy. With all of this, we're still uncertain on what we can afford, but we're determined to get to steemfest II somehow. Maybe even to host an event ... that would be the dream ...

Please consider funding just one half of the @votu trip to steemfest, and thank you for donating to the lucky winner.

I joined Steemit January 7, 2017 and the excitement from SteemFest 1 was still in the air so much so that it made me long for the next event.

So I've basically been looking forward to this event since the time I joined Steemit. I so much believe it to be an amazing opportunity to put faces to the names I've been seeing around and also integrate better into the community.

I'm all for interaction and building a better/stronger community so any opportunity to do this will definitely excite me.

Thanks to Steemit, I've had so many "firsts" in my life this year and SteemFest would be yet another "first" for me in that it would be my first conference (i'm growing up so fast) and also my first time out of my darling country.

By the way, roelandp, surfermarly, demotruk and blueorgy amongst many others are looking forward to seeing me there. You know we wouldn't want to disappoint them 😉.

I intend on blogging about my experiences daily and make use of all the lessons learned to further grow the Nigerian community on Steemit.

I began the year with the gift of finding Steemit, it will be so awesome walking into the end of the year on the back of an amazing SteemFest in Lisbon!

I want to participate to build the Arab community on Steemit

Why you should choose me to go to Steemfest in Lisbon Portugal :

😁 First of all my fellow Canadian friend @barrydutton and I have been following each other since I have been on here 11 months now and we would make great traveling companions !! Haha ! 😂 congrats Barry on winning the first trip !! 🎇👍
😁 I have always worked very hard on here to help out new members , always stay positive and happy and promote dedication , commitment and if you just have fun and enjoy what your doing the money will take care of itself !! Don't worry be Happy attitude !

😢 I was very sad when I could not attend the first steemfest in Amsterdam due to no funds or passport ! Boo Hoo !😢 But I did make a poster in support for all those that could go and enjoy the awesome Steemfest trip !! I tried to put as many names on it as I could ! Haha here it is !

👍 As you can see im very dedicated to the platform and as I missed Steemfest number one it would be the happiest time in my 54 years of life to attend Steem fest number 2 ! I have also never traveled outside of Canada ! So for me it would be a once in a lifetime experience and a place I always wanted to see before I die ! You could say its on my bucket list !! I feel as though I know many of my fellow steemians all ready , and it would be great to meet and see them in person !!
😁 So please PICK ME ! PICK ME ! PICK ME ! I will be forever greatful !!! 😁

That's so nice and omg would I love to go again

@shanzaylizay

I would like to go to Steemfest so I can promote the interests I have on this platform, specifically fiction, photography, travel + rock n roll.

I would love to meet some Steemians who I have been following in person, share a few drinks and stories.

I should mention I have the body of a Greek god, and so I would offer something for the ladies (and men that way inclined) when they get bored of crypto talk. ;)

Have never travelled in an Airplane before and it will be great to have those Clouds and sky feelings when heading to Portugal. Now that is just the travel part; the interesting part is to see the super humans behind steemit face to face, it is a chance of my life to see few of them and ask them my silly questions about how they get so good at what they do......Submitted-This is my Entry

So Hi There, I'm Joe

And as you can probably tell, I want freedom :).

human_bridge_steem.jpg

I'm a 24 year old guy with a huge interest in freedom and helping others obtain it, learning new information (I'm a podcast junkie, and I also devour good articles or books), experimenting, crypto-anarchy and crypto-currencies, traveling, creativity and creating things, and much more.
And currently I live in Prague, Czech Republic.

I also want to join the Hackathon as that might be the biggest potential to help out.

I'm a member here for a year now being pretty active until I got a job at the beginning of this year. Then I stopped using Steemit for a bit due to lack of time. Though now I'm back and as I will be quitting my job later this year. Funnily enough, the plan is to do it at the end of October when the Steemfest happens so it's a perfect timing. I also want to keep contributing more to Steemit so it can grow more and make the users benefit more.

So let me list some of my skills :

  • Security and Hacking
  • User Experience Design (with focus on Mobile)
  • User Interface Design
  • Software Development (with focus on Android)
  • Health and Fitness optimization
  • and some minor things like video-editing, content creation, probability, statistics, psychology and being a fast learner

Damn, this sounds like some sort of CV. Well, actually I will need to make money somehow so ... Who wants to hire me? :D

Anyway, from the skills above here's what I think I can bring to the Steemfest and community.

  • Helping to shape the UX, especially for mobile which was mentioned as the biggest focus of near future (Hard-fork 20 or 21) and I think I have exceptional skills for that being both UX Designer for mobiles as well as Developer
  • Security, being a Hacker and Penetration Tester I can bring some insights in terms of Security of Steemit
  • I see huge potential for Steemit to help people with obtaining their freedom in life (from government, censorship or financial) and that's why I'm so passionate about it so I'd love to help with shaping it.
  • There's a big local crypto-anarchist community where I live now and I'd like to promote Steem to it as well as make it acceptable in a Coffee place here where they accept only crypto-currencies. I also plan on participating in the crypto-anarchy event here which takes place two weeks before Steemfest so that can be a great opportunity to promote it, too and gather more ideas from people like that.
    That's what I think I can bring to the table.

Though for me participating in Steemfest would be an amazing experience as I'd be surrounded by people who want Steemit and other blockchain projects to succeed, it might help me generate some ideas and/or maybe introduce me to someone in this sphere whom I can help with something or even find someone with whom I can join up and solve a problem or two of this whole amazing community.

Basically I see this as a potentially life-altering crossroad in my life right now. I want to be involved in crypto projects and I also want to show people how they can give back freedom to their hands.

What a cool idea! There's a 0% chance of me winning, but that won't stop me from trying 😂 I've been running and building my pool route business for 20 years. I haven't gotten more than a 4 day break. Pretty brutal. My Dad passed away 6 months ago from bladder cancer. Been pretty miserable...mamma needs a getaway! I feel like I've been on tilt for the last 3 years. So many pent up emotions, I'm about to snap. There's a million people who probably need this more than I do. I have a roof over my head, a solid infrastructure or friends and family, a stable job, and a dog who comes with me to work everyday. I live the Steemit community she id love to meet others who do as well. That's all I got. Thanks for at least the opportunity! 🙌🏼

I would love to attend, however this timing doesn't really work for me due to business and personal commitments. Would love to go one day however.

Looks a fantastic event!

I have been working on an interview and podcast format for the last few months and am so excited to come interview everyone about their experiences with the Steemit community and platform. Today is such an exciting day. So good to see so many happy face. We are excited to get there and ask you questions. If we happen to win we will donate all of our time to covering this amazing get together and do our best to bring a few others! See you all there

seems like we have a winner. but just count me in :) haven't been there jet and when ill come back ill have great stories.

I am Portuguese myself living abroad, I am definitely going back just to attend Steemfest. What a great opportunity for steemit to shine bright and also for Portugal to be on the forefront of this r(E)volution. Viva Portugal!

I would like to go to Lisbon, Portugal to start a Bilberry and Nut farm in the Oeste Subregion of Portugal.
Starting a small business is a challenge for foreigners according to: https://www.justlanded.com/english/Portugal/Portugal-Guide/Business/Self-employment. However, I believe this can be overcome by convincing others on Steemit and presenting the business application office for foreigners with a sound business plan. We could convince them with the possible lucrative exposure for Portugal on Steemit through the intensive farm. Portugal is a small country and would profit immensely by being showcased on Steemit through this farm and its interaction with the community both on Steemit and Portugal. An aeroponics system would not be difficult to implement in the Oeste which is both near the coast (has water) and already a hub for intensive agriculture. We could post the farm's day to day operations on Steemit with photos of the development, bios of new team members with tags to their own Steemit accounts, descriptions of operations, and finally, photos of the actual harvest itself. By attending the Steemfest, I would be able to meet with like minded Steemit users, present the idea to locals, and begin the application process for the farm with a well prepared full business plan along with an anticipated timeline.

I'm still a noob regarding steem, and I'm trying to learn as much as I can and to get involved. But from what I do know; I genuinely believe steem is a ground breaking technology which is going to "change everything"!

Also, I have never visited portugal, and I haven't been on holiday for many years. I really need to get away, and meet some new faces and experience something different.

I was just a regular kid who didn't fit in with the 'cool' guys. But that wasn't a problem when I was younger, It was when I got older. For me it was really difficult to find a job because I was really shy and not physically strong enough. I had few friends (and still have) that I have spent my free time with (and still spending). But yeah.. I needed money.. And my only source of money were my parents. But my parents couldn't give me it every time I needed money... Ok... enough of crying..


Why I'd like to go? Well my sisters husband who is really close to me that I can even call him my big brother (he is a big steemit user now @good-karma), showed me this site. I used it for my English improvement since it's not my native language. But one thing I noticed is.. That from learning and gaining experience for my English language I also started earning money. Which I didn't even expected. Well yeah it wasn't a lot. But it was something.. For me, a teen that never ever have earned something. In almost a year I learned a lot about steemit. I have started earning even more reward. But of course my growing follower base is more important than that since it really feels good to know that some people actually like what I do.
So now, when there is a chance for me to show my parents that I started 'making a living' I would really like to use this opportunity and make my parents proud. That their son has reached something.. (really weird to write this sentence). And if I get an opportunity I will take my parents to steemfest with me.


*P.S I know that I went off topic a bit.. But I hope you still understand me.

i would love to go, my partner would travel from the US to me in the UK and we would fly, drive, boat to portugal and make to the event, we would do it on a finely tuned shared and transparent budget, we would blog all the way, video, film and interview people at the event blogging hourly while at steemfest till about 6/7pm in the evening with an evening roundup post with audio being shared on soundcloud. please pick me. i watched you all last year in amsterdam and was GUTTED not to have be able to go! - don't leave me hanging at the end of the bridge (and yes, i would be making cinemagraphs there too!)

Ok so I'll be honest here on why I want to go to Steemfest 2, Lisborn.

I'm a 19 year old boy from Assam( Northeast), India. And being a teenager from a middle class family in the 21st century is kinda disheartening.
My dad is a state government public servant, a police, who have a salary of INR 35000($500) and have two loans on our burdens, which didn't gave me a chance to visit places with my family outside Assam. Leave places to visit outside Assam. I've never visited all the places in Assam and Northeast like all of my friends have visited and and every 29 states in India.. I've visited like 4 places only in Assam and that too because of Parkour. And one was through Steemit money. So being honest, I've never visited places to keep memories before I die or never did something that would make my parents proud. As that said, I've never done a travelling through flight as price of tickets are too much for a family like ours.
Being a teenager I too want branded clothes, gaming laptops and a desired bike just like all of my friends/classmates own. But I can't get them for our financial crisis and I don't even want to force my parents for getting any of these. And that is the reason why I'm on Steemit. I want to help myself buy branded clothes, visit places with my parents but I know I can't buy my desired bike from my Steemit wallet as my posts are not that good and have less followers. Or I'm even thinking to deposit my money in banks for my future use or to help pay the loans that my dad is still paying from last 8 years instead of buying a bike or wasting it in clothes, foods or stuffs like that.
And if I win a free trip to Lisborn, half of my dreams would come TRUE and my parents would be proud of me. Cause I've never made them feel proud to give birth to me. Ever! And visiting Lisborn for Steemfest 2 would make 3 of my dreams come true:-

  • Visiting place outside Assam and India.
  • Being in a plane for a purpose tour and to that place which is my favourite place i.e., LISBORN, PORTUGAL
  • Conquering my dream through Steemit and from my hardwork, making my mom/dad proud.
  • And most importantly,
    I'll be going for Steem fest from Steem community helped by @joseph to achieve my dream which wasn't full filled in my existing life because of financial problem. But you helped me achieved it and to learn something from Steem fest and also contributing to it.
    Even if I won't get selected for a free trip to steemfest2, I won't feel sad because this is the first time I've shared this things with anyone in my life and I'm feeling good. I'm feeling positive.
    I congrats to the person that wins this free trip you are a lucky person to win it. GOOD LUCK FRIENDS

What a remarkable display of generosity - It's things like this that make the steemit community such a blessing to be apart of (even with my very small presence here). In all honesty I would like to attend to learn more about steemit in general. Knowledge is often brushed aside - and an educated community is a thriving community. It's hard to preach the benefits and future of steemit, when there is so much I still cannot explain. I appreciate the opportunity, and if the stars align such that I am able to attend - it will be an experience of a lifetime for me. Many thanks, I hope to see more from you in the future!

Great initiative @joseph, thank you. This reallymake me think deeply about why i want to go to steemfest.

Congrats @barrydutton, you are good steemian and deserve it.

It obvious that it is good time for steemit to scale. I am form Sudan (Africa) and my native language is Arabic so i think i can help introducing steemit to Arab speaker and some African countries so I think steemfest will help me do so.
On the other hand more than 7 month on steemit make me know great people that i wish to meet somehow someday, maybe in steemfest as most of them want to go.
Finally i am a doctor and i have some ideas to make health care provider active in this platform, i might have opportunity to discuss this in steemfest.

I would like to go to lisbon because as a Portuguese child I really want to know where the culture that my parents have taught me at home, I had never before had the opportunity to go to portugal because in my native country venezuela is very difficult to get the money To be able to travel. Besides being able to know portugal for being the country of my parents .. I want to be able to go to steemfest to be able to know much of this wonderful community that conforms steemit, I learned a lot here and I know that I can continue learning

Wish dt girl jumped on me ill definetly catch her

Considering the recent events in Lisbon, that is the coldest dark humor I have seen in a while. I enjoy a laugh as much as the next guy, but the bodies aren't even cold yet.

i dont know very much about steemit , but that can be a great begining :)

One comment one entry :D

because I never been there before....hehehehe...

To Steemit community:

Wow!, just the opportunity to shoot my photography in that land alone would be a blessing. To be able to document the event in photos and videos, to be able to capture the people. the community, the culture, the experience would be magical. In all honesty, Steemfest would be the icing on this fat man's cake. It would be more than a mere trip for me, it would be a life altering experience to capture in all through my lens.

If I am not chosen it is okay, I am certain whoever wins deserves to win, kudos to whomever it is.
Blessings to one and all, may you make the most of every moment and every wonderful soul you meet.

@Georgemercado

I always wanted to visit Portugal and Lisbon. But someting kept me away from it, might be the money, time or the distance.

When I joined Steemit and realized how perspective, friendly and revolutionary are people and the community itself, I immediately fell in love with it. I started telling everyone but a few online friends only signed up and are wating their approval.

Why SteemFest? Since my childhood I was always interested in revolutionary stuff, when I grew up I developed an interest in music and all kinds of festivals.

SteemFest2 visit would be a combination of realizing my childhood interest and binding with people who share the same vision of how the internet and the community should and will become! A place of liberty, valuation of people's toughts and content, where each voice has an echo.

**My condolences to the families and the people of Portugal for their recent loss. **

Why send Ryan?(Trismegistus)

Hey guys, I know there's a very, very, very slim chance that you guys pick little old me. But I say that a very slim chance is still better than no chance, so if you guys are willing to hear me out and at the cost of a little bit of exposition, why not give it a go.

First off my name is Ryan, nice to meet you. You can check out my introduction post here if you'd like to put a face to my text wall. I'm a biology undergraduate from canada and run this, my main blog along with curating Science-trail and recently creating the new Esteem Network Initiative, which I hope to see grow in the future for the community. I am a long time lurker of Steemit (made in august '16 baby!!), but have been posting actively since march or april.

Second off, the sob story , I don't come from much. I'm from a below average single parent household and only in the last year have escaped to a small apartment in my university town after my mother sold our house. I can't say that I've had it the worst anyone ever has, or the least anyone ever has, but my 20 years has been rough and I feel my circumstances have weathered me long beyond what I may been without them. School's expensive, my parents cant help much, and I likely won't be able to make this trip, let alone any trip without help.

I think Steemit is an amazing community, it's obvious to any of us invested that the potential and general community engagement is greater than many other platforms. I also think that from what I've observed, the most succesful users are relatively older than the average student blogger. Which can be expected due to more complex intricacies of the blockchain, but also because of some of the investment prices which can be associated with success in some cases. This means that I am also one of the younger users here on steem and I believe that my long term investment in the platform from another demographics point of view is essential in moving Steemit into the limelight. I mean this is not the strongest point, but having thousands of adults at Steemfest doesn't send a message that resonates with young minnows who don't have the career funds to support their blogs. I feel that I have the dedication and mindset for success, I just need those of you who can help to recognize someone who is willing to be an invested member of the community. Which comes to the meat of my entry.

I love the world, I love culture, I love travel, but I've never had the money. I also love learning, I love educating, and I most of all love sharing. I have, for as long as I can remember, wanted to be professional in some type of science. Whether it was paleontology, to astronomy, to polymer chemistry to my current love of genetics, I've always had the lust for a profession in knowledge and sharing, and I think this can be powerful thing when you are surrounded by others who share that interest. Since I realized this I have put all of my effort into my "craft", I learn as much as I can, try my hardest and can say I am well on my way to that goal. As I work through my undergrad however, I find myself running low on funds, which leads to a part-time, which leads to lost time, which leads to lower marks. Because of this I have decided to take some time off school in order to work at both my real job (roofing and best buy) and go full time steemit. The unfortunate truth is, even with my jobs I still can only save up a small amount each month and making an as expensive a trip as Portugal for me would void a huge amount of my savings for returning to school.

Thank you judges, if you took the time to read this and honestly consider me among yourselves as an option I appreciate it. I've never had the opportunity to enter a contest like this before, and often do not participate in any giveaways on Steemit because I simply think there's such a slim chance my comment is the best. But this time I can only dream will be different, Steemit has already showed me that amazing things are possible and I am willing to suspend my disbelief for a few days if it may get me to Steemfest II with the rest of the community. With all that said, thank you @joseph for providing the opportunity. I will be crossing my fingers in anticipation for the results.

Thank you for the chance!

Wah. Indah that lago. Nyan lagak that lon kalen semoga beeujroh bagi tanyo di steemit. Follow lon @sunbahri

i gave you a upvote for this and i wish you the best

i don't know how this HardFork 19 works and what it is as i'm new to steemit( i need to do some research about it now) but it is good to spread happiness to all the community members and encourage us new authors to publish more content and to explore different corners of this community. I think it is one honest attempt to push the minnows to participate in this.
Steemit will never be same after this update. it will start to attract more number of content creators and give them everything like audience for their work, income, appreciation, learning, evrything.
And coming to the contest there are others who deserve this more than me

The exquisite light of Lisbon:

ich binn noch so neu
aber nächstes jahr bin ich dabei

Great Move !
Thank you for your offer !!

Here is my comment !
For the past few decades mankind is advancing towards the unknown realms of science and technology. This advancement is to make life easy and to increase comfort at home and at work. I would like to be an integral part of such betterment. For this, International Workshops and Seminar would be of prime importance with hands on experience in real time. My ambition is to work at the forefront of the information technology with the ability to find innovative solutions to the changing needs. This Steem Fest II is what I believe to be the favorable solution might be.
In order to move ahead to achieve my ambition, I have planned to attend attend SteemFest II Lisbon. I believe it to be a great chance to learn ideas and intimate crypto currency pioneers. So I chose to attend SteemFest II.
I am LP Aryal from Kathmandu, Nepal. Born and raised in rural and hilly part of my country and pursuing a successful career here in Capital, Kathmandu, Nepal. I love travelling,reading and writing.
I am a Fintech lover and working for a Digital Payment Solution provider Company in Nepal . As I have been working as a IT/Fintech professional my ambition towards Digital Money, Crypto Currencies ,e-commerce, e-governance, automation of payment ( online payment) became an aim to achieve for identity. I, thence, chose Steemit.
I believe your Steem Fest II will provide me a dynamic atmosphere, to shape me as a better thinker and a learner. The diversity of the participants will open my mind to new influences, new ideas and new ways of doing things. The world is literally becoming a global village where opportunities for work are transcending physical space. With the Cyberspace connections, Nepalese professionals at the pursuit of knowledge are increasingly contributing to the global work force. Steem Fest II will give me the training and the caliber to meet the global challengers. I look forward to being active Participants of this Program. But I am not at stage that I can pay for all things so I wrote this story here!

Because i'm 52..

If you only see from the side of the word "free trip" everyone will be excited to get this opportunity.

But, To answer a question, why would you want to attend this Steemfest II?

With my first background, I have not understood once about steemfest, I want to know what is steemfest by attending a seminar or a percentage of steemfest.
Secondary backgrounds, the people here are less mature about crypto and blockchain, so to give them a glow about the crypto world and blockchain we first know what cryptocurrency is.
And the purpose of attending this steemfest is to raise awareness of the common people about the world of blockchain in order to know how important blockchain and cryptocurrency is in this last era. Now people here are only 5% who know about the world of blockchain. Those who think the internet world is hard to believe. To convince a layman in this business world, they need real, eye-catching facts, such as an office, or other documentary evidence, that can change their minds that investing in this virtual world is not a hoax.

I would be so grateful for an opportunity to attend steemfest. All my life I have been embarrassed at people asking me what I want to do in life. Not knowing the answer can really lower your self e'steem'. haha. I will use this platform to help people become successful. I will use it to motivate people and uplift them. Attending this journey will aid me in my path to giving this site awareness and continuing to help enlighten people. It would be amazing to get to meet individuals who are involved in the same things as me.

Im very impressed that things like this are happening in steemit, and im also glad for the opportinitie to participate in this contest, fisrt of all Thanks.

i would like to go to Lisbon because i actually never had left my country( Venezuela) since is nearly impossible for a normal person to get enough money to pay a trip(likely 3 and a half years of work and saving without spending . Also would like to meet and explore new places and share with new people since i barely can leave my house because the political situation in the country.

Thankyou.

Love your all analysis and posts are very helpful

Steemit Community,

In the past several years, I have given my body, mind, and soul for the great good of humanity. It has been a wild journey. I have lived in million dollar mansions on the water, and have been so hungry and poor I had to push over garbage cans to get food. So as you can see I have sacrificed everything, friends, family for the universe. The past few years the universe has streamlined everything; I have been meeting positive people trying to change the world for the better everywhere I go. Literally the universe has them come up to me in bars and start conversations. Its an incredible feeling and the universe now has lead me to Steemit. I know exactly why the universe sent me here at this specific time and purpose (joined 4 days ago). My life purpose is to save humanity, help every person, and have a family so its obvious to me that Steemit is the vehicle for me to initiate real change. As Steemfest being the pinnacle of the community, I feel like it is my duty to attend and meet and connect as many souls as possible. I leave my fate in your hands universe like always. Namaste.

I would love to visit you with SteemFest II, as I see SteemFest II is a new inspiration for where I visit.
I also want to write something good for SteemFest II
Hopefully I can visit the place

I'm irfani, I see steemfest is the best at the moment, I really want to visit there, I see steemfest something very interesting and worth visiting, I want to write something good for steemfest because now I am busy taking care of my course but I take the time to comment on this steemfest

Continued steemfest success :)

Keep giving the best, thanks steemfest :)

Hello joseph! I am a teacher and I would love to take a week off to go study more about steem to help the community! Teachers can take time off quite liberally, so there will be no problem with taking some vacation time (Plus I haven't taken a week off in 4 years haha). Good luck everyone!

As for me winning a trip to lisbon will mean alot to me as a kenyan from East africa.I will promote steemit here in my country to the fullest show people the real world of steemit community.

It is simple in my case. I want to go again because I want to meet all those awesome people I met at previous SteemFest and meet new Steemians.
It is fun and interesting to meet the actual people behind those usernames and dispell imaginations or assumptions :-)

(Great way to celebrate HF you have come up with, btw. All the best to the winner!)

@shanzaylizay

Thanks for the opportunity, you are very generous. Sttemit is the basis of community spirit, that has and will continue to revolutionise the way in which we communicate via social media. But, it is much more than that - it is an intricate network of entrepreneurs, creative geniuses, free spirits and those that promote change in the world.

When like minds come together the energies are incredible, whole buildings become a buzz of pure positive energy, with the potential to set off alarms in the wrong places. The way forward is about connectivity and more importantly community. Today's society seems to have forgotten this is what we are here for. As a species we are naturally inclined to be social creatures, it is part of our DNA. But because the masses have been so cleverly conditioned and programmed to a certain way of life our community values are dwindling rapidly, to the point of being a minority.

I would like to attend Steem II mainly to meet like minded people, to share and exchange ideas, and to find a commonality that is so rare in today's' instant gratification world. It is through face to face interaction we begin to put these ideas in to action immediately. The sparks ignite the flames that literally start the community fire alive. With the sharing of know how, we all benefit...so much to share for those that wish to listen. Steem II will be a platform where I can learn and share what we are doing here in Croatia with a community based project. Thank you for taking your time to read my words.

upvote and resteem , and upvote around half of your posts dear and the same i expect from you gentle man , so kind of you always love to read your posts

The country I really like when I'm on vacation 😘😘😘😘😘😘
