Feed Your Minnows Series, Episode 1: Giving Back 100% SBD Post Payout to my Followers

in steemit •  2 years ago

Hello everyone reading this – and especially my followers, since this post might be of a special interest to you!



After the last successful giveaway of 5 SBD to three randomly picked followers, many of you left comments saying that you would like to participate in similar giveaways in the future. So I decided to make it a recurrent event and to

give away the entire post’s SBD payout to ALL interested followers


every Friday for the foreseeable future!

So today we kick-off the first ever episode of this brand-new and exciting “Feed Your Minnows” series!


The Rules are simple:


  • You have to be a follower of mine in order to participate,
  • Leave a comment under this post. It can be freely formed, but it should include the hashtag #MinnowsFeed. One has the entire first payout period – 7 days – to leave a comment. Once the post has received a payout, no further entries will be accepted.
  • The entire SBD payout for this post will be divided equally between all my followers who left a comment under this post.
  • Optional: Upvote this post. It’s up to you, of course, whether you decide to do it or not. But the more upvotes this post gets, the more SBD it earns, and the greater is the total reward pool to pay out to all the participating followers. So by upvoting it you are benefiting yourself and the others! #solidarity



    As always, please share your thoughts, suggestions, criticism, and love in the comments below. Don’t forget to mention #MinnowsFeed in order to register for the upcoming giveaway.

oh, what a curious idea ;-) like it
and want to try my luck with #MinnowsFeed
and of course with greetings from a member of #steemsilvergold

Interesting concept! Sharing is caring :)

·

Caring + Caring = CASHaring! ;) And in one week time my followers will be cashing out their shares of this post’s payout – exciting!

Thank you for joining, @lucashm. I appreciate each and every of my followers!

·

Thanks Joan! You brought me here. I am one of the humble foot soldiers in the massive @joanaltres army of followers. There are so many of us now that maybe we should have our own JoanAltresFest every year. Maybe you should start scoping out locations in which to hold it. :-)

·
·

Lol! When most of us are finally out of the minnow tank, we'll be able to afford to have that JoanAltresFest. :) Thanks for the laugh, @paul.atreides

·

This seriously blew my mind. I don’t know how I deserved this, @joanaltres, but I’ll do my best to prove that your trust wasn’t given in vain. Many thanks!

·
·

Oh, well thank you too! :) I'm not a big deal on Steemit. I'll be posting some more myself soon, but there are a lot of people who have been grinding it out, day after day, who deserve more thanks than me. They've kept the place active and have made it successful. More power to you, to them, and to those coming in. :)

·

same here, well not 9000 followers but a few ;) #MinnowsFeed

·

Don’t forget to follow. Otherwise you won’t be eligible for the giveaway (see the rules in the post above the comments).

·

Really appreciate the resteeming you do!

·
·

I second that! Thank you, @joanaltres! God bless!

·
·
·

Glad to do it. :) You and I actually signed up the same month. That was Steemit's "Dark Night of the Soul" stage. Prices falling to a dime per Steem. People bitter and disappointed. Lots of negative posts back then. Feels like a much different place now. Better times and even better ahead. :)

·

but how did you get so much followers :O...

·
·

Lots of grunt work. :)

·
·
·

.. hm... looks like you like re-steeming a lot as well :) Definitely haven't seen a profile like yours before.

·
·
·
·

Most people who do a lot of following to gain followers just do it for themselves - for their own posts. But I like playing Santa Claus too much to be selfish. :) It's fun giving someone a little boost in earnings and followers with a resteem.

Hey bud :). I love this!

Upvoted, followed, reshared :)

#MinnowsFeed

·

Hey man! I’m glad you’re enjoying it. :) Thank you for spreading the love!

·

Wow, awesome! Thank you, mate! I followed you back – you have a cool blog full of interesting stuff.

And please don’t forget to tag your comment, if you want to participate in sharing the post rewards! ;)

Good luck all #MinnowsFeed

·

Thank you for your participation!

Great idea, I will follow. #MinnowsFeed

I really appreciate the blend of hustle and altruism in this #MinnowsFeed initiative and I look forward to seeing more of your creative content in the future. Hoping we can connect and continue to evolve and learn from each other! Remember, be yourself, because nobody else does it better -- Full #Steem ahead @oleg326756 :)

Much ❤
@Tayken

·

Thank you for your support and participation, @Tayken! The payout is due tomorrow and so is the Episode 2 in this exciting “Feed Your Minnows” series. Stay tuned for more, my friend! ;)

·
·

Excited to be a part of another creative endeavor carried out by another Steemian I deeply respect @oleg326756

Please let me know if I can help support you in any way...I'm always happy to!

Nicely done mate! I like it!

Good for you that @joanaltres is going to do a resteem. She did one for me a while back and it did wonders for my followers. The race is still one and maybe now you will take the lead =P. I like the initiative but wont tag today, let the rest share in some of the prize money! Upvoted 100%

Good luck with handling the payout admin for this one =P let me know how it goes! hehe

P.S. first comment with new keyboard. It types like a dream! So soft. Will share a pic later

·

It’s an honour to be the first comment done on your new keyboard! Enjoy your new toy, buddy! (that’s was she said!)

·
·

Hehehehe. Everytime =) Will actually mention in a post later on. A lovely keyboard though. So happy with it. Microsoft 4000 check it out

Pretty cool of you. Thanks! #MinnowsFeed

Oh my gosh Oleg, I hope #MinnowsFeed does not become a full time job for you. The great Joan Altres just resteemed this to 9000 Steemers!

·

Haha, thank you for this fantastic news, @paul.atreides! (Also, I’m in love with your handle on Steem! :)) Well, I will only be happy if some of those 9,000 awesome individuals choose to follow me as well. And, since I will only be doing this series on Fridays, once a week, I can always do this work during the weekends. I don’t mind, really! :)

Thank you #MinnowsFeed

·

Thank you!

I want to commend you for doing this. I think what you are doing is a good thing for new people getting started!
After what happened to me 2 days ago, I am on a mission to bring a lot more over to Steemit, and I want to be able to point them to people like you.
I'm following you now , so if I don't make it this week maybe next week.
As I post 2 days ago, I am taking all the proceeds and using it to bring as many people to Steemit as I can. (YouTube Terminated my account for telling people to move to Steemit)
Keep up the good work, I look forward to more of what you write.

Thank you so much for your words of support and for the resteem! The more minnows come to feed here, the better! And hopefully the reward pool will keep on growing from one week to another. Take care, friend, and welcome back anytime! ;)

You and I are both definitely minnows still, my friend! But as we keep feeding on high-quality posts and other Steemians’ generosity and positive spirit, we will keep growing and graduate to dolphins one day! Until then – thank you for being my follower and for participating in this giveaway!

·

Enjoyed it alot, thnx for mentioning.

ok here we go , glad to be a part of your give away !!
#MinnowsFeed

My deepest appreciation, @oleg326756, for your initiative to give something back in the form of #minnowsfeed given that I am still new myself, I am curious, is there a certain criteria that determines a minnow, or is it a matter of opinion?

Thanks again

·

Yes, the accounts with less than 10 MVests are considered minnows here on Steem. Once an account hits 10 million vests, it graduates to a “dolphin”. You can check your current vests on https://steemdb.com/, for example. I, for instance, currently have 717 SteemPower and 1.483 MVests.

Thank you @oleg326756 for this opportunity! I just found this post and started following you. Upvoted and I hope you have a blessed week!
#MinnowsFeed

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity in advance. ​ #MinnowsFeed

Thank you! That’s one of the main purposes of this new series: to build a friendly solidaric community of new (as in “recently joined”) Steemians who will mutually help each other to grow and prosper in this sea of rich adundance that is Steem!

Well as a complete and utter newb to Steemit but already a lover of its community and inclusiveness I can't help but want to promote this and be a part of it. So I will ReSteemit to the few followers I have.

Love to you all

First I must thank you for giving your rime and effort to support us MInnows new to this site, I am so new not sure I have matured enough to be a Minnow yet but maybe that the lowest level I am not sure I am stilllearning how it all works here,

But one thing I do really like in my short time on here is the sense of community and support that I see so much more prevalent here than I have ever seen anywhere else

Thank you for supporting us minnows with your #minnowsfeed ❤ following, updated and reteemed. Cheers and happy Friday!

Hey Oleg thanks for sharing! I just got started on here yesterday (have barely slept any of that time lol) and am overwhelmed by how supportive this platform is to each other! Today I learned what a minnow is, and with that, that I am one so to that I say, with much appreciation #minnowsfeed :) Thanks again

·

Hey, welcome to Steem, Cece!! Just don’t get too addicted, okay? ;) You have a really fun blog – with mouth-watering photos of your beautiful and yummy creations! I’ve followed you now. #food is a very popular topic here on Steem. I’m sure you will grow fast and prosper here. Enjoy! ;)

·
·

Hey back :) I cannot make you any promises that I am not prepared to keep ;) With such great content on here, how is one not to get addicted? Well why thank you- food is one of my favorite things to talk about so I'll be sure to post more pictures of what I mix up! Thanks for the response, it's nice to meet new people on here. I love this community already :)

I'm ready to go on the path of becoming a whale.

Don’t forget to follow. Otherwise you won’t be eligible for the giveaway (see the rules in the post above the comments).

Interesting, is there a catch? :)

#MinnowsFeed

·

Well, I guess there is a “catch”, so to speak. I am gaining many new followers (yay! you guys are awesome!) and I’m keeping the SteemPower part of this post’s payout. The other part – in SBD – goes to you, the followers who showed up with the #MinnowsFeed tag in the comments.

Neat, huh? Only I’m not calling it a “catch”. I’m calling it WIN–WIN!!

·
·

Thank you for the info.
Nice idea if I may say so myself :)

Muy interesante, intentando aprender, soy novato en steemit, saludos a todos.

That's nice :)

Ah, thank you! It’s fantastic to read these words coming from you, my hero here on Steem!! Pure awesomeness! :D

That's so generous of you to help the little minnows out here... This is better than the usual giveaways based on luck, since every one gets to be a part of this.
#MinnowsFeed

Thank you for your kind words, @varna. I will be benefiting from this series too, so it’s not just pure altruism on my part, you know. :) But yes, I thought that equal and solidaring sharing of this post’s rewards would attract more people and guarantee that every participant gets their share. Thank you for being a part of it and hope you will return in Episode 2 on Friday! ;)
