The Great Steem Giveaway is back!! I'm excited about this one, seeing as the last one was a huge success, I feel like the latest instalment could really blow things up!
OK, so if you didn't catch it last time, I decided to throw a competition that would reward great comments. I meant to give away about 55 Steem but ended up extending it to 100 and actually finally giving out 114 (amended from 110) Steem!
The way I see it, a good reply to a post can really enhance and elevate that article. So why shouldn't that be celebrated and rewarded?
I was also inspired by some of the great comments that I regularly get on my posts, especially my Cryptogee Musings. So I wanted to reward these people in some way, whilst encouraging others to make great comments as well.
However at the time, there was a niggling thought in the back of my mind, and that was; if I truly want to reward intelligent commentators, and encourage others to do the same thing. Then I shouldn't just reward comments on my posts.
So this time around I am going to be giving away Steem to the best comments on other people's posts, but not just anyone. I am choosing Steemians who I feel have contributed greatly to my articles with their own additions.
Sometimes it has been a simple gif, and at other times a long thought out opinion. Some Steemians have agreed with me on my musings, others have not. This matters not, as I value intelligent discourse over sycophantic agreement, that said, it is nice to hook up with people who are allied in thought.
This Week's Player
OK, he doesn't know this yet, but the person I want you to focus on is @quillfire.
I have chosen this Steemian for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, he is a bright, intelligent, and interesting person, he always makes great comments on my posts, and often makes me think and laugh.
Secondly, his comments have inspired a couple of my musings and have taken me along different tangents of thought.
Lastly, and probably mostly, his posts are excellent, yet hardly anybody has noticed yet! Yes, I know that this describes a lot of people, but hey I'm only one man, and most of those people haven't put themselves in front of me by commenting on my posts.
