My Curation Efforts Under #philippines Will Shift Focus More, To 100% Powered Up Posts! Steemit Growth Efforts Reaches Baguio, Philippines!!! Steemgig Inside!

in steemit •  last year
I am hot sad! The truth is i have always been. Life is dead hard! I am not talking poverty and stuff. Moolah is nothing in reality. It is not a measure of success; SBD's even a better measure!

Well, upstairs is some off-key stuff; this is the real talk downstairs:


Assume there is one country called "steemit", then it wouldn't really matter, if you are Filipino, American or Chinese. The entire essence of the whole community-initiatives on steemit, is to bring about steemit growth worldwide. 

The steemian, human-behind-the-steemian, human-race is all that matters afterall. Philippines, China, USA are simply locations. 

The #philippines community is currently appearing to grow, not like it never existed. It has existed since day one. Currently, some support is reaching the #philippines in terms of curation efforts and steem power, stirring some more activity. 

The whole idea of this though, is not to cause isolation or segregation. We aren't here to say, you are not Filipino, don't post in #philippines etc. That is very old school stuff! 

Steemit hosts the world and that's where most of its beauty lies. The entire ecosystem is what will keep #philippines thriving. 

You will notice that i upvote commenters on posts from #philippines, regardless of the steemian's location or origin. 

We are steemians now and we should be developing a culture already, where that's only what counts.

People love the Philippines and they don't have to be from the Philippines. The culture we want to promote is one of respect, peace and harmony, self-sacrifice and love. 

"The human behind the steemian" is all that has ever mattered; race or steemit wallets don't!

 I will expend myself on behalf of you for hours, whether you are whale or minnow. It is that simple. I will be the same Terry, unshaken, proven, of substance; whether my wallet says whale or minnow.

Power should never cause friction, rift, disharmony. Steemit and steem came around to adjust that; let's play along!

Let's grow into the best versions of ourselves. Develop and evolve, define and redefine ourselves and become staunch in our purpose. Let's dream; envision and create visions and let's play these aspects of our beings on the blockchain and leave legacies for generations yet unborn, while empowering ourselves as well.

The only way your SBDs will have real essence, is when it does good to the brother next to you. Else, you will just be another rich man on the Tabloids. 

I prefer you brother/sister steemian, every time to a billion dollar Manny Pacquio!

 True success, is in your substance; else, you will just be another regular Joe. You will walk the room and you won't be able to halt the chaos.

If we say, there has not been an enabling environment, now we have an enabling environment; "steem"! Use it.

There was "YOU" before steemit. Bring "YOU" on steemit. Reshape boring internet with a piece of "YOU".

Curation Efforts (#philippines)

For my curation efforts, i will like to direct focus a bit to powered-up posts. Currently, SBD has been maintaining at more or less 1$, thus, i will try to direct more attention to fully powered-up steemit posts in the coming days, just to instill a culture, especially among our newer steemians, the art of vesting some of your steem into steem power. "Steem power not only helps the steem economy but helps you develop as person and in your steemit journey alike. 

"The more steem power you have, the more influence you will have in matters relating to steemit". 

We want you to think long-term lasting-gains, a bit more than some hurried SBDs. We want you to be leaders! We want to put the helm in your hands, when it comes to putting a smile on other people's faces by means of your more impacting upvotes.

Too, there is value in steem power as another aspect of steemit that gives rewards apart from the blogging, is curation

"Curation is also a talent that adds value and curation efforts get rewarded in proportion to the size of your steem power, among other things!"


"#philippines"

Using the above tag, simply exposes your post to a wider range of audience. It is only logical, that steemians looking to learn about the Philippines etc, would search #philippines

To promote unity, i will also be focusing on this tag more!

Disunity leads nowhere and has the potential of crumbling communities! Note that there was always a Philippines community from the start but it never became renown.


Recent Steemit Growth Effort

A few more steemians, have joined steemit from the Philippines, thanks to the effort of every steemian in the Philippines or abroad. A few others are awaiting verification. 

Note: even your constant blogging and curation effort stirs steemit growth, whether organically in the search engines or by virtue of a strong more vibrant community. Steemit growth does take a ton of methods, so forget what others do, don't waste energy discredit it. Focus on the substance of what you do, believe in your methods, whatever it is and stubbornly carve your path and let others be inclined to follow. 

Regardless, of how you see it, everyone even in the tiny things that they do are playing a role in steemit growth, so no need for comparisons as it will only deter you. People do sleepless nights behind the scenes with constancy on behalf of others. Someone thought of humanity and created steemit and the mere fact that you are on steemit today is ample evidence that someone out there has selflessly promoted steemit. 

Steemit in the mainstream is good for every steemian!

Steemit growth effort continues............

We decided to present steemit this time, in terms of the true beauty of its potential, way beyond the earning as should apply to students, Philippines and abroad as they are still in the stage of finding themselves. I am hopeful to get to work with @steemiteducation on this:


So yesterday, i was able to send @southparkqueen to Baguio, Philippines! It is mostly an ambitious effort to try bring steemit to some other place besides Manila where we live. 

I didn't know she far-reaching she will get, so i left it hanging. She is has been successful so far as she was able to visit a University and she has already arranged for a gathering of possibly 1,000 students, for me to talk about steemit to, next Friday. Talks are still in motion: but this some evidence of her effort earlier today:

I am also working with some creative stuff with @pinaynomad to create fun ways to promote steemit as effectively as possible. We want to take her talent up a notch and fire it up and keep her lit, then use this prowess to promote steemit even more. 

In general, everyone is doing awesome. It does take a collective effort and no one is doing more or less!

@luvabi @grazz and @dreamiely are also in talks to visit a university near my area and we are team basically, so we will see about making that happen. 

If you have in mind, budget meetup in your area, reach out to me, as i would love to hear about it. If you are able to gather workmates, bosses, investors to a meal but have difficulty talking about steemit, within Manila area, reach out to me here, then we can see how to handle that on your behalf and likely cater to expenses for the meals as well. 

Outside Manila, perhaps, we can look for older steemians in your area, who can come around to handle the speech.

I absolutely LOVE seeing steemit signs in the hands of young people, that is so exciting :)

I actually came over to your page to see if you had posted more about being a witness. I see that @jedau is now promoting you for witness at the bottom of each post which I think is lovely (haha, I get to gloat that I probably voted for you as witness before him and definitely one of the first people right? lol)

I have some friends here that are disillusioned with how a lot of top witnesses have handled things, I think it would be for the betterment of steemit to have someone with your passion and obvious care for people and this platform to be up in the top witnesses, so I think @jedau has a good idea and I've decided to start promoting you for witness on my page too. In fact I edited my newest post include that (You aren't going to disappear on us anymore right? :)

I have a question about what you wrote at the top, you are talking about curating for the Philippines, are you running a Philippine trail? I wouldn't be qualified for using that tag I don't think, my only connection to the Philippines is my friendship with you and Jedau.

Also, I sadly will not be able to do one hundred percent power up posts until November because right now we are relying on my income from steemit to help with some things until the winter business begins (we are in a tough financial spot I'm afraid) I even have to take a bit from my SP (so sad about that) to pay for a special trip that I promised to take my daughter on, a promise that I made six months ago. But I will not let my total SP fall under 10,000 I worked wayyyy too hard to get there! And when the winter business begins I will start doing full power ups on steemit again. I am definitely not going anywhere, I love steemit! I haven't taken a break for the whole nine months I've been here, I've barely missed any days of posting even :)

Can't wait to here more about your witness activities my friend, especially so I can encourage some of my worried friends :)

·

Hahaha, these are my witness activity. I am not the techy part, so steemit growth and helping people in the dms and all these tiny community effort plus #steemgigs which directs people into their vision aspect and help people not completely lose themselves to only the blogging ETC; these are my witness activities. Don't worry about the tags and powering up, that is mostly for newbies join steemit, to guide them into creating content and instilling in them the culture of powering up at this early stage in their steemit journey. Also, its not a trail, it is just a tag, so it is easier to find their posts. I will visit you more constantly. Thank you for supporting the witness. You will get financial stable soonest. There are somethings that can be said here, so the DMs will work. I will remember to visit more often

Love this one..

"Disunity leads nowhere and has the potential of crumbling communities! Note that there was always a Philippines community from the start but it never became renown."

·

Hahaha, i was trying to pass a message across. Hopefully, others will spot it like you did!

·
·

Terry..knowing some people, that message will go out in the other side...am so bad!! Peace!
@dreamily @bearone

·
·
·

Hahaha, hard to spell @dreamiely sometimes. I spell it wrongly too, till recently!

·
·
·
·

Do it like me..i call her dreamy, serves her right for choosing such a word for a name. Peace lola!

The true wealth is not be measure on how much do you have in your bank account or wallet, how many car you have in your garage, but how many poor soul you lift from drowning in scarcity, how many lips you bring to smile.

Philippines is a home to great and talented person, they can adopt and learn new things in a glance but they are also bit skeptical. They need prof, evidence and example. If you meet this three entity, surely they come running. However, most of them lost patience to wait. They want the reward in no time. Therefore, what they need is an advice and a guidance. A trail to follow.

·

Yes, that is what i try to accomplish with my blogs. You have said everything right. I am hopeful that my own testimonies on steemit manages to teach!

·
·

My full support is with you sir!

·

There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.

·
·

@allabout, but often your instinct head to the different way.

Its very good to losten that you are working in steemit for promoting
Great bro keep it up

I am very happy about your attitude towards Non-Filippinos posting and commenting under #philippines. This shows an open mind and that´s what I like most about steemit, that you can meet open-minded people from all over the world here. You can gain so much from the shared experiences of people from different countries, and the Filippino community has the advantage of its members being able to communicate well in English and therefore will be able to reach also a global audience.
I especially appreciate your efforts to bring steemit to Filippino students, because I know that many families have to make a lot of sacrifices for their kids being able to study and steemit has the potential to support those students also a little bit financially.
And ever since I read "Ermita" by Sionil José I know that there are some serious writers, who write in English, in the Philippines. So steemit could also be a starting point for young, aspiring Filippino writers, since there is no more need nowadays to suck up to a publisher, when you can self-publish at no cost at all.

·

Yes there are talents here really. Something though is, these youths don't know of their talents and that is where steemit and its broad community comes in as this amazing community serve as mirrors. Thank you especially for spotting my attitude when it comes to communities.

Now when i think about it, i think we could arrange a meetup here in Makati area, in the locality of San Antonio. I will try to coordinate with the brothers because we will be having a 2 day bible conference here. Maybe after the conference i could do some arrangements. I will keep you posted as i get updates. More power Steemit #philippines! :)

·

Yes, willing to hear.

Awesome effort! Thanks for all that you do to promote Steemit in the #philippines :)

Love this Terry, couldn't agree more.

Steemit growth does take a ton of methods, so forget what others do, don't waste energy discredit it. Focus on the substance of what you do, believe in your methods, whatever it is and stubbornly carve your path and let others be inclined to follow.

Thank you for all you do, let's continue pushing for a united Philippines, and Steemit community!

·

Thank you. I like that you also spotted the unity part! And thank you for the prettiness you displayed here

Please post more Baguio pics @southparkqueen!

·

No pictures. She just arranged a meeting. I will have to go there with her next Friday. She spoke to the head of a dept there in UP Baguio. They said next Friday, so i will go there. Chose mass com because there is likelihood that they would like to create content!

·
·

Right, also College of Arts. Journalism. :)
Good luck. Baguio trip is really nice!

·
·
·

Thank you! Okay, thank you for the tip

Thank you @surpassinggoogle for being who you are!

That would be great if everyone could come together and realize we are all the same.

And I love the #philippines too!

·

Yes, it is necessary!

Keep up the good work on promoting and growing the community of steemit here in the Philippines. I wish you all success in your projects and initiatives. Wish you all the best.

·

Appreciated! Thank you!

Greetings from the Philippines! Thank you @surpassinggoogle for this initiative 👍I joined Steemit in its early days but just recently returned to the platform. Good to hear that we are getting some attention 😀

·

Yes! Welcome! Will visit you some time! There has always been attention! Stay present!

All the best bro ...

·

Thank you brother!

very nice post @surpassinggoogle sir, i really appreciate the efforts of @southparkqueen to introduce steemit to 1000 students, i hope your work and efforts will give steemit plateform new heights.

·

I hope it is successful though. She is still arranging it, while i wait and go there!

Wow from Baguio soon to Mindanao.It is my vission to promote steemit to urban poor people and rural areas at Mindanao.I can imagine how steemit can change everyones life not oy because of SBD but its for the opportunity of knowledge also that we can share to them with the son of daughters of farmers that has potentials to develope their talent and skills.

Hi I have joined your promote at https://discord.gg/CGuPyyT, so what can I do now?

Congratulations! This post has been upvoted from the communal account, @minnowsupport, by darklog from the Minnow Support Project. It's a witness project run by aggroed, ausbitbank, teamsteem, theprophet0, someguy123, neoxian, followbtcnews/crimsonclad, and netuoso. The goal is to help Steemit grow by supporting Minnows and creating a social network. Please find us in the Peace, Abundance, and Liberty Network (PALnet) Discord Channel. It's a completely public and open space to all members of the Steemit community who voluntarily choose to be there.

You are an angel sir @surpassinggoogle 😊. With a golden heart caring to other people 😊. Upvoted and resteemed .

·

Great post! Such great work your doing in the Philippines! Keep it up and will apply some great features you have here to my market.

·

Thank you, please do!

Yes this is a collective effort. Amazing that @southparkqueen were able to go way south of the Philippines to introduce this platform and good to hear that it was successful. Way to go @surpassinggoogle !

This is a good post, I really like it. Hopefully the next post is better than this. Thank you already share. And thank you too, if you get time, to see my post today and upvote and like it i'm very grateful. Upvote on my new post because I want to reveal who my friends account thieves. With your help I want to grow up and others to want to read this post and be careful to avoid the betrayal as my friend has experienced. Thanks for your attention and help.

Before I joined the Steemit community I sometimes practiced meditation called with no boundaries, international, organized basically by the USA gurus. It was breathtaking at times. This article made me get that gut feeling again and perhaps in a helluva enormous depth. Thanks is not enough!

·

Your comment is weighty and touched me alike. I love that you mentioned depth. There were really deep feelings to it!

Cool.. Awesome .... brilliant

Go go steemit Philippines

·
·

yes sir u right and i m agree with this and now after ur efforts it make easy for ur coutry mates

Do help us sometimes too 😂

Glad that my fellow ethnics, Igorots, are getting now to Steemit. Wishing us all the best for the #philippines. I fully support all the projects, hope that the "disagreement" you mentioned in the first part will get sorted out, after all we are one #philippines. Also, appreciate the support you gave to my bro in the province. Cheers :)

·

Hahaha disagreements. You seem to know! Well, it will be settled, i am sure. Hope some my posts reach listening ears!

·
·

I've seen the conversation, looks like everything is well now.

·

Why didn't you go? How about in Vigan? University of the Philippines.

I suddenly realized what i asked you in discord chat earlier is already posted in your blog. lol! this is really a great cause. i will try to be more active here and let me know if there is any thing i can help even the tiniest help i can for the community. :) God speed!

·

Okay sweetie. Will do! Thank you fro grasping my underlying message!

Excellent and Impressive. Awesome post @surpassinggoogle

Beautiful work @surpassinggoogle, I really appreciate your unending passion towards touching lives. Well done

I'm sure that you will interest students Steemit, they will all come here!

·

I believe so too. Alot has to do with how much they feel your presence and the empowerment you pass across. They have so many reasons to be on steemit financial rewards.

Indeed,@surpassinggoogle i hope someday in gods perfect time, i been given a chance to promote steemit platform specially jobless person to reduce puberty in the philippines

·

Yes, you will. Pacing is essential. You need to have climbed over the ladder to draw people up the ladder

helping poor is the biggest way to get blessing of god it helps to get great pleasure :)

·

No doubt, there is pleasure there! I prefer to call it "empowerment".

·
·

you are too kind hearted that so love of you :)

We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don't even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It's time to put an end to this. It's time for us to let ourselves be loved. Cheers !

Nice work, best regard

Same as you, I will be focusing more on #philippines and #pilipinas! Thanks for this post and more STEEM Power to Steem Philippines!

That's great! More power to you :)
