October Power Up Day Delegations


Power Up Day Oct delegations.jpg

This is the tenth delegation for the year. Only two more to go and then we hit 2022. I'm not going down that path. Yet. For those not familiar with what I'm warbling on about each month, and after @traciyork has published the official results for the new month's Power Up Day, I delegate 100 Hive to 3 accounts that participated in the initiative.

Why I do this?

It's a combination of paying it forward and walking the talk.

October Power Up Day

If you don't know what happens on Hive Power Up Day and how accounts stand to gain, read @traciyork's Power Up Day post and join next month?

A reminder about my delegations - if you didn't follow the link...

Each month, I set aside 300 HP that I delegate an equal share among three accounts that meet the basic Power Up Day Criteria.

In my case, though, and given my focus on redfish, the accounts must also be -

  • be less than 6 months old
  • have at least two qualifying posts since the previous power up day.
    Posts that qualify must have 200 words or more and exclude posts for Power Up Day, and Actifit.
    As a reminder, the reason I added the second criterion is because -
    Hive is a social blockchain: it's for socialising, ruminating and just generally hanging out.
  • a reputation of less than 61
  • not more than 500 HP in their accounts before they power up - both on the first of the month

Qualifying accounts for October

This month, Traci sent me seven accounts that met the basic qualifying criteria. On closer inspection, three fell away because they didn't meet the additional criteria that I have set. That left four and so I drew straws, so to speak.

and then I thought...


I have delegated 100 HP each to @samsmith1971, @thejoeprocess, @alvaradofran, and to @darmst5339

Here's proof:


But that's not all

Remember that in addition to the delegations, these accounts are added to my fanbase and receive a daily 100% upvote; I also ask @ginabot to notify me each time they post. If I have an opportunity, I pop over and have a gander and occasionally weigh in on whatever the post may be about.

A last word - or two

Thanks as always to @traciyork, @victoriabsb and @hivebuzz for all the hard work they do each month - and around the blockchain, generally.

Thanks too, to @doze for the super Hive graphics that he develops and shares for us all to use. Do check out his posts and perhaps drop by and show some Hive love.

Until next time, be well

  1. re-vamping old recipes. As I do this, I plan to add them in a file format that you can download and print. If you download recipes, buy me a coffee. Or better yet, a glass of wine....?
  2. and "re-capturing" nearly two years' worth of posts.

oh wow! Thank you so much @fionasfavourites💗. I actually had no idea that I was putting myself in line for a possible delegation when I powered up🤭I thought it was just a great community initiative to bring people together, have a bit of fun and invest in the community together. I truly appreciate this🙏I run a monthly contest myself for new HIVE members called Paying it Forward #PIF which you'll come across shortly then as my post for October should be published today 😊


Oh great. Please tag me. Although I may not get to respond properly until about Sunday as I am usually AFK on a Friday and Saturday because of my market and village commitments


Wow thanks for the delegation, you are so generous!!😁 I apreciate it, have a beautiful day!
