A Literary Month!

The first contest of the new year is in the books! Thank you all for making it an epic one. We had the third highest prize pool out of our ten months of exciting competition! All due to your thoughtful and interesting entries, of which many readers (and curators) on STEEM enjoyed! We welcomed a few new members to the @yourtop3 family with first entries this month, so thanks for joining and we hope to continue to do our best to keep the community growing and thriving!

Many talented authors put up for the @dpoll this month--from some of the most widely read to more obscure picks. I think we all added some new selections to add to our personal bookshelves this month. Though we went pretty wide in the theme this month with all genres welcome, it was such a hit that it won’t be too long before we hit on literature for a topic again. Until then...

Let’s see what our STEEM community has to say about which of you came out on top and if your authors reigned supreme......

We Are On Discord!

Yay!! We now have our own DISCORD server!

With the smashing success of the contest, we thought it best to open up a server to make it easier for our amazing contestants to come ask questions, interact and drop their links to entry posts. This way you can make sure you never miss an announcement and easily be able to check out your monthly competition ;)

You can join our Discord server here, which is where all the FAQ and contest rules will be housed :)

Congrats to everyone for finally finding a way to topple the (former) Champ :) (Yes, I still talk crap even when I lose).

Looks like the top three positions were close but @wiseagent came out on top and not only gets the TOP3 Champ crown but also wins themselves a Splinterlands StarterSet. Contact me on discord (I'm in the TOP3 Channel) and I'll happily send you the StarterSet code.

If I don't hear back from you by this time tomorrow I'lltry to reach out to you in some other way. I'll be creating a winners topic as well so the readers of my blog know that I gave out the prize as I said I would.

Congrats again everyone and I can't wait for the next @yourtop3 contest to start.

Thank you for being an honourable (former) Champ @rentmoney! Competitive round this time but we're sure you'll be back fighting to reclaim your throne like a true Champion never gives up!

We appreciate the additional prize/bounty this month as well!

Oh praise the heavens above its finally happened and not even in the top 3 my prayers have been answered and @rentmoney finally kicked off his pearch!

Haha! Quite a start to 2020 here! I think the (former) Champ will want to reclaim his crown though but for now, it belongs to Wiseagent :)

I'm ready for it, @nickyhavey... Haha!


Don't get use to seeing my name in any position but first because the gloves are coming off and I'm all set and ready to reclaim my championship crown.


Party time!! Congrats!

Congratulations to all the winners!

This was such a great month with great entries. Plus we had new people join the contest. New year, new people :D

Now next month, what will it be, WHAT WILL IT BE???? :D

Woohoo! First month of the year done and dusted! Great job everyone. Always a blast to see which choices take the prize, but the journey there is the best part.

Thanks! and congrats to the winners :)

Congratulations to the top 3 winners and all participants for January contest.

Congrats to winners! I must confess I have no clue how the scoring system works! Lol. Fun anyway.

Congratulations it was fun reading the entries well done @yourtop3

WOW... Just WOW!

A huge thanks to everyone who voted for me and congratulations to all the winners (and in general, to all those responsible and participants who made this edition happen).

For me, it's an honor to be in first place and you all can be sure that I'm going to fight hard to keep this crown with me, haha! ;P

Well done @yourtop3 team and to the winners @wiseageant, @simplymike and @dksart. And, as I said on Discord, @rentmoney - great concession speech!
