My entry to the Pay It Forward Curation Contest - Week 83

in #payitforward11 months ago (edited)

This is my entry for the Pay It Forward Curation Contest - Week 83 hosted by @pifc. The contest is run by @thedarkhorse and judged by me, @tryskele, @lynncoyle1 & @viking-ventures.

The rules of this challenge are very simple: Feature 2 High Quality Original Content Blog Posts from Steemians with a reputation score of 65 or under. The submitted posts must have less than $2 earnings at the moment.)

I want to present you with a couple of authors I've been following for a long time and who have not been very lucky with the #NewSteem philosophy: @zlata777 and @glenalbrethsen.

Almost since the beginning of the contest, I've been exclusively featuring artists... and now that almost all the artists are getting plenty of recognition, it's time for me to do something new and different. So, this time I'm featuring a blogger talking about her Chilean Degu Squirrel pets and a writer talking about Steem itself.

#1 - @zlata777 (52)

Her name is Светлана (Svetlana - to all of you Cyrillic analphabets) and she has joined the Steem Network on January 7, 2018. @zlata777 lives in Slavyansk-na-Kubani, a town in Krasnodar Krai, Russia. Her blog is quite personal and she talks about the region she lives in, shares some poetry and also some stories about her day to day life.

In this featured post @zlata777 tells us about the challenges and joys of owning Chilean Degu Squirrels as pets:

The post is written both in English and Russian and speaks about a recent trip to the veterinary to cure one of these little guys.

#2 - @glenalbrethsen (61)

Glen Albrethsen is a writer from Oregon, USA who started his adventure on the Steem Blockchain at the peak of the Crypto Markets, in December 30, 2017. From there until now, Steem price has been on a steady downhill and, despite that, @glenalbrethsen is still among us, blogging regularly and sharing his stories with us.

Glen Albrethsen doesn't stick to a single topic and writes about a vast array of subjects. Oh, and be on the lookout for his original stories, they're usually very good.

The post I've selected to feature was published last night and talks about Steem, the Banks, Governments and Money in general:

@glenalbrethsen posts quite regularly and if he hasn't give up until now, it's safe to assume he's sticking with Steem for the long run.

Final Thoughts

At the time I'm writing this post, both blogs have very little rewards, with $0.11 and $0.40. Let's try and push these rewards a bit higher.

I think @zlata777 and @glenalbrethsen are consistent bloggers and both have survived a long list of hardforks and other shenanigans. They don't post just for the sake of posting.

Please give them some love and support. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks a lot! 😉

I am not !DERANGED but I do give some away...

Thanks, have a !BEER back! 🍺

I hope it's a Belgian !BEER 😉

You don't like Super Bock?

In Dutch Bock is a goat... so that explains the only super about that !BEER is the name 😂

I'll drink a Super Goat, then. What is your favourite !BEER brand?


At least... that's a !BEER

I never heard of it. 😱

Hey @trincowski, here is a little bit of BEER from @pixelfan for you. Enjoy it!

I upvoted the blogger with the animals


Hi trin, i saw glen on the list and I upvoted his blog about the veterans but 66 and 9000 steem is overqualified, so next time i will help the smaller accounts hahahah

Oh, reputation of 66 already? It was 61 last week. I guess he must have gotten a big whale upvote. Nice, nice!
