SteemAlive Presents: My root - a family discovery contest (Total prize 30+ Steem)

in SteemAlive4 months ago (edited)



We, the SteemAlive Community are thrilled to announce our very first contest called My Root. When we made our introduction post few weeks ago, we promised to host weekly contests so as to keep our new recruits and old members active and retained. We have been making plans to keep to our word and now, our very first contest is here - My Root.

The Contest

My root is a journey of family discovery. We have made friends here on Steemit and we love them so much. However, chances are that we do not know much about our Steemit friends family background. It is true that some of us mentioned a few things about our family in our introduction posts, but it was not as detailed or family-focused as we would have loved it. So My Roots will help us say much more about our lovely families.

How to participate

Write a post of at least 300 characters about your family. Make it fun and write as much as you would like us to know your family. But the more detailed, the better. We may add a prize at will to the most detailed stories. Everyone is free to join this contest.

Hints on What to write

  1. Your family makeup.
  2. Where they live
  3. What each family member does now.
  4. What makes each member unique and special to you.
  5. How a family member has impacted on you positively
  6. Something special that happened to your family
  7. Any other interesting thing about your family, be creative.

The rules

  1. Write about at least 3 Family members. But it would be best to write about all.
  2. Include a clear group photograph or individual photographs of at least 3 family members. Again its best to have all represented.
  3. Your post MUST be submitted to our SteemAlive Community. Also subscribe to our community.
  4. Kindly upvote and resteem this post to help more people join(Its not compulsory though)
  5. To encourage engagement, please read and comment on at least one other participants story
  6. Drop a link to your post as a comment on this post.

The prize

Right now, we are just a new community with little earnings so far. We have just 30 Steem. So we will reward the first 10 participants with 3 Steem each. This contest will last for 7 days. If we get valuable votes on this post, or other posts, will be able to reward from the 11th to the 15th entry or more with 3 Steem too.

Support this contest.

You can help us to host this contest by donating to increase the price money. Send your donations to @steemalive and indicate its for "My Root support." You can also give a valuable vote. Or join our curation trail. Thank you so much in advance for supporting this initiative.

We also call on @steemitblog to support the participants if possible, with votes on their valid entries.
We also hope to get support from our great friends @kiwiscanfly, @stephenkendal, and @crypto.piotr

I will be happy to learn about the families of our @steemalive team and members such as @beckie96830, @iamdanny, @talktofaith, @mesonia, @dlioness, and others. We thank you so much and are looking forward to your participation or support.

Dear @steemalive

Thanks for sharing link to this publication with me @focusnow. It's not my kind of topic (I never paid much attention to my family history), however I think others may find it interesting. For that reason - I resteemed it already.

We also hope to get support from our great friends @kiwiscanfly, @stephenkendal, and @crypto.piotr

What kind of support would you hope to receive. An upvote? No problem. I also resteemed your post. Anything else I could do?
I could allocate few upvotes for best entries (in case if you would be launching new contest in the future).

Yours, Piotr

You have been so supportive of our efforts even when it's not your kind of thing. That shows your extraordinary kindness. Thank you so much. Yes, we will appreciate your kind votes on the best entries of this or future contests. We are amazed to receive this jumbo support from you. Our community appreciates you that you do and wishes you the very best of life.

Its really going to be amazing because i can percieve it..smiles.....thank you sir for this opportunity to get to know ourselves in for the contest

I really like what you do on Steemit @stephenkendal

Is there any way I could reach out to you? Perhaps we could find ways of collaborating and supporting each others efforts.

Do you use discord by any chance?

Yours, Piotr


Sounds great.

I am always looking out for projects and ideas that help to promote #Steem and are always here on #Steemit.

Happy to chat openly on #Steemit about ways we could help support each other.


Dear @stephenkendal

We clearly have similar views.

Happy to chat openly on #Steemit about ways we could help support each other.

ehm. Communicating via comments is very limited. Plus I value privacy.

Perhaps you could consider joining our project.hope community discord server. I would gladly welcome you:

No pressure, however it would be great to have an opportunity to "connect" with you,
Yours, Piotr

@stephenkendal Alright. We will surely do that.
