I'm delegating 500SP to two users for two months: Nominations required

in steemit •  2 months ago  (edited)

I have noticed a few Steemit users putting in some effort in support of new users through initiatives like the Redfish and #tenkminnows power up leagues that @paulag works on and also through users like @abh12345 and my brother @tarazkp who have supported many users over their time on the platform. Well done to you and to all the others who have done so as well. I am sure there are many out there who are grateful for your assistance and have carried that torch forward in their own journey. I am one of those who my brother helped and so it's time to pay it forward.

Do you know someone who needs help getting on track?

I have done a couple of little things here and there on the platform, generous things, however have decided to throw my hat in the ring with the likes of the very generous and community-oriented aforementioned, and un-named users before me, with an offer of an SP delegation to a couple of users. There's nothing you have to do to have the chance...Just be nominated by another user in the format below. Read on for the details.

What you will receive:

  • 250SP delegation from me for 2 months (60 days). This is 250SP each, for two individual users.

To be considered:

  • You must be nominated by another user and you must have an SP of 499SP and less. Nominations must be natural people, not bots. This will be checked of course.

How do you nominate a user:

  • Simply reply to this post and in 50 words or less tell me why you have chosen to nominate the user and why they deserve my 250SP delegation for 2 months. Please also tag the user you nominate.
  • [Edit] Please limit your nominations to one user only.

Can you nominate yourself:

  • You can however you will not be selected. This initiative is designed to support users who actively post and engage on the platform which is why nominations must come from another user and not oneself. If you have been active and have engaged your efforts will be rewarded by a nomination.

How long do you have to nominate:

  • I will take a look at all the nomination replies on the expiration of 7 days from this post going live. I will be selecting the users to receive my delegation personally and my decision will be final.

What is the selection criteria:

  • As above, nominations must have under 499SP, at the time of being considered. I will weigh up the 50 word reason given by the nominator and will also take a look at the nominee's feed, replies and comments.

Why am I doing this:

  • I hope to help a couple of users who are struggling to bring it all together. My hope is that the people who are nominated, and subsequently delegated to, take advantage of the increased SP to get after it and push forward with their Steemit journey.
  • I want to give a little something back to the platform because I have taken so much enjoyment from it.
  • I want to demonstrate that the platform cares about new users, that it is possible, through active engagement, to build relationships and grow and that there is a lot of value to be found, not just from a crypto/financial perspective.
  • Lastly...Well, because I try to be the best version of myself that I can be, as often as possible and this is me simply doing that.

So, I hope this makes sense. Please keep in mind I am not a Steemit whiz-kid and so I may have messed this up in some way. If I have please be lenient and respectful when you point it out to me...Or not, it's your decision.

it's so hard to only nominate 1 person. I saw this post this morning when it was published and had to really think about this because there are so many awesome people worth of delegation.

with that said I would like to nominate @curatorcat. @curatorcat is a small fish with big potential. Always engaging and I was so sorry they didn't fall in with the make 250 new minnows event last month. However, @curatorcat got stuck in helping us make minnows . This is an account worth delegating to and I do hope that you will accept this comment as my nomination

·

Thank you for the nomination @paulag, very kind!

I'm just a believer in the idea that if we all help each other move forward, it moves the entire community forward; ultimately, my motivation for supporting the minnow-making initiatives could be considered "selfish" because I also get to benefit from Steem having a larger middle class.

Truth in disclosure for @galenkp: I currently am at about 408SP, but I do effectively have 500+ SP thanks to a "gift" delegation I've had for some time.

=^..^=

I will nominate @wildhomesteading as he is another Redfish being supported by @hitmeasap to reach minnow and in seeing his content, I think you woukd enjoy it as I have found it really interesting given I am so far from that reality although I would love to do it at one point.

Thanks for the initiative and the desire to support our talented colleagues. This week I met @pixaroma, I saw his first post and I was impressed by the quality of the photos and the desire to share his experience and knowledge.
So, I propose @pixaroma and I'm glad that @photocircle confirms the value of this new colleague of ours!

Thanks for becoming part of Steem's various "minnow making" initiatives, @galenkp!

I would like to nominate @wildhomesteading who was part of @hitmeasap's #minnowasap program with me. This is a relative newcomer (January) who creates beautiful content and engages with the community... and — like me — is just a little short of reaching the 500SP level.

A very worthy candidate, I believe!

=^..^=

I'll nominate @nooblogger. He hasn't been around these parts very long, but in the short time I've noticed him (he came to my attention using the Lego tag), he's consistently posting and interacting with those who take the time to comment on his work. Has a strong future here.

Uhm, this usually looks like a not so easy task for me nominate someone for these sort of delegation contests. More than anything, because I think I am an old misfit hermit that usually do not receive many comments in my posts by daring plankton & red fishes as to know them enough to recommend them.

I suspect the main reason must be that they are too afraid to interact with me to avoid being infected by the lethal disease of the humorous extravagance. };)

However, lately, I found a couple of daredevil renegades, mavericks and formidable outlaws that they have given me the opportunity to know them better and that I think they have the right conditions to nominate them.

One of them appears like he is not active anymore since three months ago. So for now I will discard him.

Therefore my nomination for your offer of the 250 SP delegation is gonna be for one of the few heretics that I know who still are in the process to enter on minnowsdom. He has now exactly 257.423 SP and I believe he will be immensely happy if through your potential delegation he finally could get that damn vote slider by just one hit that took me to myself three long years to get it.

I just hope that if you grant it to him, that he doesn't start fucking around with the slider and he dare to upvote my posts and comments with less than 100% of his VP };).

Simply reply to this post and in 50 words or less tell me why you have chosen to nominate the user and why they deserve my 250SP delegation for 2 months. Please also tag the user you nominate.

  • reply to this post... check!
  • 50 words... check!
  • tag the user I will nominate... @skramatters

As you can see, I don't play very well with rules. And solely 50 words for me were too few to persuade you that my nominee is the best choice. I just hope I have fulfilled the mission with profusely verbose eloquence. :)

Quite loquacious indeed @por500bolos. Where to begin, I can assure all-parties I would be most appreciative to receive a delegation and will continue my commitment to inspiring glorious acts of engagement and content creation for one and all. Which is to say guaranteed 100% upvotes for the nominator and a life long fan of all involved in securing said delegation. Bribery on the blockchain, I'm all about full disclosure and transparency.

I'm of course joking, that's mostly what I do around here, which is how I've come to know my potential benefactor. Birds of a feather as such. Now I'm feeling guilty about not following through on my promise to watch all those links and give my witty commentary on that post about banksters the other day. I'll get right on that after I finish my dragon week research. That's right it's dragon week!

I hope I haven't blown it with my own verbosity. A simple and succinct thanks I'm humbled would've probably sufficed. Just imagine what my acceptance speech will be like though. It will shake the steem right out of a whales wallet..

Birds of a feather as such.

Yes, that's right. I'm totally convinced that we actually need a lot more derelict mavericks and eccentric oddballs in this place with a well shaved tongue to point out the obvious with rumbling humor and reverberating resonance. Thus, we need more 500+ SP minnows with a stronger say.

And I have the hunch that in this specific department, you @skramatters will do a great job. :)

I hope I haven't blown it with my own verbosity.

Eloquent verbosity sprinkled with plenty hilarious wittiness always will be in the first place on my list. };)

I nominate @curatorcat. They have lots of cat content as you may expect, but they also curate with what SP they have. A little more would enable them to do more good and get them to minnow quicker.

·

Thanks for the nomination @steevc! It definitely all helps... and I do my best to help move the community forward because I believe in what we have going here.

=^..^=

No problem. I'm happy to support those who make Steem better.

I'd like to nominate the delightful @crohnschick
She's only been posting a little while, but she's been both prolific and engaged; and brings an existing audience with her.
She's also a baller :)

  ·  2 months ago (edited)

I nominate @curatorcat!

This was so hard to pick the one, but, I feel like if you are going to choose, let your choice be someone who will be an asset to the platform - engaging and friendly.

I wish all the nominees good luck!

Upped and Resteemed for more visibility

Thanks for the nomination, and your ongoing support and encouragement @dswigle!

It's my pleasuree!

I most enthusiastically nominate @owasco. She is a brilliant writer and full-time contributor to Steemit. She supported me through @freewritehouse March madness and I always see her helping other people with her thoughtful comments!

Great initiative!

Hi @galenkp!

I would like to nominate @mermaidvampire who deserves to get that delegation. She is an amazing Steemian who relentlessly gives so much efforts to the members of this community. She organizes contests and games and gives planktons a chance to become red fishes. In her challenges and contest, there are no losers! Despite her illness, (waiting for her kidney transplant) she still manages to give newbies a helping hand on how to go about their accounts by giving tips and by giving back what she earns from the platform in form of rewards for her contests. A very active lady who promotes Steemit to everyone. Please check out her blog. Many thanks

·

Only users with under 499SP or less are eligible for my delegation. This is not a reward-initiative, it's designed to assist smaller users to grow and develop, and to engage. @mermaidvampire does some great work which is appreciated by many smaller accounts and I'm sure she would prefer my delegation goes to a couple of smaller accounts. Thanks for your interest though. Depending on the success of this delegation I may broaden the criteria next time.

I am looking forward to who gets nominated. I will have a think and add someone also :)

·

Cool. Yeah, I'm hoping to get some good nominations. It would also give some valueable exposure to those who don't receive the delegation so no one loses.

I hope I do. I'm sure there's a couple of deserving recipients out there somewhere.

Thanx @galenkp dtube has given me much trouble also, i thought maybe due to me being noob or poor wifi resources / cellular out on the road.

Can you suggest another app to try other than dtube, That might be better?

You're welcome...I got a few laughs looking at your blog so gave you a follow.

So usually I use YouTube if doing videos. Never had any luck with DTube at all. I don't tend to do a lot of videos really but lost patience with DTube.

Just keep doing what you do. I'm going to resteem one of your next blogs to try and get you some more exposure. I know how hard it is to get started.

Trucks and cars man...You had me at trucks and cats! 😼

Trucks, Cars, Aaaaaaaand Bikes...! I do not ride much these days, scarey out there with the Cell Phone Zombies behind the wheel. Cell Phone Drunk Drivers.! More than 50% of people behind the wheel are phone impaired and more dangerous than drunk drivers they are saying now. True Story. I see it every day from way up high in my cab.

Thanks Again for the help. I will follow back and resteem. @denmarkguy @simplymike @janton and a few others have really helped me along here.

I ride too...Sports bikes not Hogs. Yamaha R1 and R6 among others. I stopped for the same reason. If you say you like guns then I know we're twins seperated at birth! 🤣

I'll see how the delegation goes. Going to be a hard decision but no matter what, I follow you now and you'll get some support from me regardless. Keep up the good work on Steemit mate. Keep those big wheels turning.

[email protected], I am amazed with your attitude of pay it forward .This kind of mentality is very rare nowadays. You deserved a recognition.😍

I am also a minnow in this community and I am so thankful that I've met @mermaidvampire ,a strong woman who is always willing to extend her assistance to all steemian's like me.Despite of her condition you will never noticed any complain on her blog about her situation.She always think of how she can help others in her own little way. She did a lot of projects and competition daily for her fellow steemian's and as a proof she is now introducing a plankton token.You can read her blog about it.

Overall I can say that @mermaidvampire deserves the reward for this nomination.

Again thank [email protected] for this initiative. God bless❤️

Good that have people like that on the platform, thanks your brother @tarazkp, I joined steem-ua, for some delegations that he promoted. Sometimes we do not have the resources but we do want to participate and these actions are what help us and give us a light on the way. :)
My nomination is for my husband @theonlyway. He is active on the platform and his publications are mainly Christian, leaving a good message of values ​​to the community and also publishes art, He is very creative. I invite you to visit his blog. Thank you for this initiative to support the little ones. Blessings.

I nominate the users from my Minnow-ASAP project:
@curatorcat | @wildhomesteading | @kansuze | @skramatters

All of them have had fantastic growth and due to the fact that I'm taking on new users for the project, these people will no longer have the same prioritized support after this Sunday, (2019-04-14).

To see any of them being picked for a delegation would be a superb icing on the cake, for all of us.

Thank you @denmarkguy, you may also like to nominate a worthy recipient. If not, that's ok, I appreciate your resteem which may help another user make the cut.

·

I didn't have anyone top of my head @galenkp, but looking at some of my comments, here's a nomination:

I nominate @krazzytrukker who keeps an unusual blog about being a long haul trucker who travels everywhere with his two rescue cats in the truck. It's part cat blog, part story of a many whose life was turned around when he rescued the kitten that changed his life. Perhaps not as active as many, but a newcomer, and I think worthy.

·
·
·

Mate, this guy @krazzytrukker combines two things I love: Cats and trucks! I'm actually going to give him a follow even though he posts videos I can't watch as DTube never works for me!

Thanks for nominating this user @denmarkguy. Have a good weekend.

Thanks for this opportunity @galenkp, let me nominate 2 new Steemians who are contributing good contents to the steem blockchain. (Both are photographers with different approach)

@g-shot

Photographer / Traveller, he post about the places that I can only dream of. A great photographer as well. And deserving for an SP delegation for his activities in the platform. Let me share his intro post:

@pixaroma

Photographer / CG artist. He is also a regular contributor to my contest and he's really good at producing great quality photos. Aside from that, he also share awesome looking CG art, he's legit. Well deserving for SP delegation as well, for his engagement to the other users here in steem. Let me share hi intro post:

@johnb75 not here just for himself, dedicated to building steemit community, spends all his RC upvoting/commenting and following others, forgets newbie RC is limited and runs out before posting himself. His ethos very much in line with yours, just needs a bit of help before he can help others.

What a wonderful initiative @galenkp I'd like to nominate someone (although I can think of a few worthy steemians) so I will have a think about this and add my nomination soon. Am resteeming to get the word out! Have a fabulous weekend. 🌺

Going to throw my nomination to @mytechtrail. I did delegate 250 SP to him once and it was nice to see someone with a lower amount of SP enjoy the higher amount for a while. He used it well plus the manual voting is nice.

Thank you for the kind mention @galenkp. It's nice to see that the pay it forward mentality is still present, particularly as there are increasing options to delegate to projects with a reasonable ROI.

I am a little unsure who to pick, but will check Paula's Red Fish League out and get back to you.

You got a 3.36% upvote from @ocdb courtesy of @galenkp! :)

@ocdb is a non-profit bidbot for whitelisted Steemians, current max bid is 45 SBD and the equivalent amount in STEEM.
