1. Contests are booming on Steem

In the latest edition of the Win With Steem daily contest listing post @pennsif has recorded 40 contests closing on Thursday and Friday with over $1100 worth of prizes.

Contests are a great way for newcomers particularly to network, get involved in the platform and potentially win STEEM prizes.

There is a massive range of contests from dancing to crafts to photography to cooking to football to poetry to travel - very much something for every taste...

This is useful. I wonder how easy it is to get viewers here?

Start by joining the Newcomers Community...

thanks for the information pennsif

You are welcome.

hello my frend .
thank you for mentioned

You are welcome.

Thank you for the update Pennsif

Thanks for this update

Great article! Seriously loving this community and the knowledge it puts out. :)

Thank you, glad you like it.

Felicidades a los destacados. 😊✌🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I've been away for several months, and am just getting back onto Steemit. It's really nice to see you back!

Good to see you back too. Will you be restarting the Tino Take again?

Thanks! Yes, I'm working on getting multiple podcasts up and running again. I just need to get some tech issues sorted. How about yourself? Will you be dusting off your microphone as well?

Will look out for the podcasts.

MSP was my main outlet - but that is not so 'Steem friendly' these days...

Well, there's always the possibility to reinvent oneself! You certainly have an amazing talent for gathering news on Steemit, and you're obviously not shy in front of the microphone. I suppose it comes down to whether you have a passion for podcasting, or whether you are more comfortable with the written format. Whatever the case, you are greatly appreciated for what you do! Thanks!

Thank you - I will keep all options open !

Waiting for the day

Thank you for this information. It is an eye opener. Grateful?

Tengo un buen tiempo fuera de steemit y estoy volviendo por aqui de nuevo, y estos concursos no los habia visto me parecen fantasticos!

Hello @pennsif. Nice to greet you. I am a moderator of the Steeming Community. I would like to tell you that we are also running daily based contest, which is called ''how you have spent yesterday on Steemit?''. This is supposed to be daily contest within our community. I'd like to ask if you can add up our contests (and, specially, this contest) to your news' posts. We will appreciate it. This is the link of our contest:

We are also running more contests, and games, every week. You can check them out if you like. Regards. Saturday, May 8th, 2021.

Thanks sir @pennsif for including my contest.

Is it running again yet?

I talked to arie about it and it needs some revision also I converse with the Philippines community and they said to make it a weekly or make the deadline longer. They also want it to be a post contest not just comments so yeah maybe I'll post later today about the contest. I'll tag you once I posted it today sir @pennsif.

Thank you - I will look out for it.
