1000 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 5 - The Diary Game - The Shopping Game - Building Community

in #the1000daysofsteem6 months ago


As we have mentioned several times Recruitment and Retention are two major focal points in our future plans for Steem.

The Diary Game, and other similar games like The Shopping Game, will have important roles to play in these plans.

They provide a perfect mechanism to help build Community.

And if we build a strong Community then Recruitment and Retention will become much easier.

The Diary Game and The Shopping Game - Are You Engaging?

We read every single Diary Game and Shopping Game post - and we find it fantastically interesting.

Unfortunately with the number of posts we have to curate every day we don't have time to make as many individual comments as we would like to.

But we wish we could.

And we wish you would too.

There are a number of very active commentators like @charjaim, @lavanyalakshman, @olesia, @rishabh99946, @rodolfmandolina, @rosz, @sapwood, @tocho2 and @vipnata.

There are now 68 people that have won the 10% upvotes from the Lucky 10s game...

But we really want a lot more people to be making a lot more comments.

We want players of The Diary Game and The Shopping Game to comment on each others posts, getting to know each other and learning about each others lives.

Particularly among the other people playing in your own country. Wouldn't it be great if everyone got to know all the other Steemians in their own country as a start?

That could lead on to many other things in the future.

Then we really would be building strong vibrant communities on Steem.

The Diary Game Season 2 - Engagement

Making the connections and engaging with others we feel is so important we want to find new ways to encourage this.

We don't yet have definite plans but we may look at ways of tying scoring, at least in part, to the number of comments a post has.

You might ask how do you get more comments on your post...

  • make your posts as interesting as possible

  • go out and comment on other people's posts.

If you get known by making relevant and interesting comments on other people's posts they may well come and comment on your posts in return.

And if people comment on your post they will ideally also vote on your post.

We are keen to see as many people as possible voting on each other's Diary Game posts.

People shouldn't just be reliant on votes from @steemcurator01.

Build a following, get more votes.

The Diary Game Season 2 - Lucky 10s

To encourage more commenting the Lucky 10s will continue running throughout Season 2.

It is currently running on The Shopping Game posts - get commenting on those and be in with a chance of a 10% upvote from a 4M SP account.

Get to know your fellow Diary Game and Shopping Game authors.

Be friendly. Comment. Vote. Build a Community.

Thank you,

The Steemit Team

Notes from the Community...

Next SPUD4STEEM on August 1st

Organizer @kiwiscanfly has put out a reminder for the next Steem Power Up Day on August 1st.

Witness @steemchiller has joined the sponsors of this great monthly event and there is now over 11,000 SP in the prize pool along with upvotes from @steemcurator01...

The rewards from this post go to support the work of @fundacorazon in Venezuela and @thegreens in Cameroon.


I like to watch purchases, it is interesting to compare prices for different countries;). Thank you for creating such an interesting foundation for quality content!

Glad you like The Shopping Game. We find it very interesting comparing prices around the world.

Quite exciting things happening on Steem now. I think I'm motivated enough to re-start contenting and engagement here. Besides, I'll restart my offline promotionals for steem. I've been a Steem influencer in my local community and I'll hopefully get everyone back here. Lemme make my introduction post for the Diary Game. I wish I can make up for the 995 games remaining.

Will look forward to reading your diaries when Season 2 starts on August 1st.

Hope to see you with your first Diary game. I really miss you @uyobong. When you are with me I feel at home. For the last couple of days I searched for you and couldn't find. Thanks for your great love & passion for steem, let's make Steem a better place.

Hi friends, I really like to comment post in #thesoppinggame and #thediarygame to encourage other to post, people must know that other steemians are reading with attention each post..!
I love comment and I love to know the world through each post
Thanks a lot..!

You are doing great commenting, thank you.

i have been upvoting and commenting on as many #theshoppinggame posts as i can - i am finding it very interesting to see how others shop and what they buy :)

I am learning stuff as i go and meeting other great steemians - so its a win win

Hey there People!!! 😊
These events are so much fun and I’m waiting for the diary game to begin.

Do stop by at my entry for the shopping game.
@steemcurator01 @steemitblog



Commenting is a great thing that I would love to engage myself more into. I am always busy commenting on new steemians posts in the steemPOD project and many newbies are following me. I now see that I have to divide up some time and also do well in commenting on #thediarygame and #shoppinggame posts.

Thanks so much for encouraging and supporting engagement on the steem chain. It's time to build a great and strong following through dropping atleast 20 comments on various users posts.

Hi @steemitblog
I love today’s message! I am really a believer in the Three R’s ; I have two contests going to promote them!!

But I really love what you said about engagement!
In fact I was thinking of replicating your Lucky Ten Comment Upvote practice in my Communities Banking and Finance: 500 members and Flower Pictures: 400 members. While these communities are growing fast I see the same problem you describe, not enough comments and mutual upvotes.

I plan to follow your lead and reward engagement with a Lucky Ten percent vote of my own. I am definitely not as big as @steemcurator01 or any of the other steemcurator accounts, but I am bigger then most of my members, so I think my 10% vote is still appreciated.

Lastly, I wanted to say thank you for creating such a positive presence and focusing on recruitment, rewards and retention. I have many ideas of my own to help Steemit, in terms of the communities I have created, but I am really putting a lot of energy and focus into following your lead and promoting your programs and themes because I think that will ultimately make us the most successful.

We should all row in unison to get the most from all our efforts.



I'm grateful to be here with you in this community, and I hope we'll always be helpful.
And we support each other with love and appreciation.

Looks interesting. I will have to try to post some Diary and Shopping posts this week.

It is difficult to comment here because not everyone posts in English And there are many posts every day. Some write Spanish, some Chinese, some Hindi Many people do not understand these languages. So, maybe many people do not want to comment.

However, those who see your post today must try to comment. Those who live in our Bangladesh. I will tell them too. As if they are commenting. I also comment on many posts.

Hey @steemcurator01 pls visit my profile as few posts are going to be outdated.

Well said @steemitblog, I have really found out that the reality of getting more Steemians around you is keeping them engaged through ones comment. It also keep us motivated that we are doing right things and we are really on course. This is a great opportunity you Guys are offering for us, in the absence of Diary game for that 1 week or 2 weeks gap. I would be much keen on the commenting lately. Thanks for this reminder.

Engagement is really key for creating a social web, after all we are social platforms. So encouraging and keeping policy to reward commentators can always keep this engagement going. Thank you.

Hey, @steemcurator01 my 3rth diary game Post is expired without upvote please Look into it.

Thank you.

woh that is amazing SPUD4STEEM is growing
this is my shopping game first entry.

Sincerely I'm still a little bit confused about the diary and shopping game as I am still really new on stemmit and I would really love to participate in it. So if there is a way to please explain a little bit better in a more simplified way. It would really be of huge help. Thanks in advance

Hello, I'm @pepsi81
This is the Mangwon Market in Mangwon-dong, Mapo-gu, where foreigners enjoy visiting Seoul. Let me introduce my diary post.


thank you!

Quite exciting things happening on Steem now. I think I'm motivated enough to re-start contenting and engagement here. Besides, I'll restart my offline promotionals for steem.

With great pleasure, I'm seeing quite a few interesting things inside the Steemit platform.

Previously, in the past, I had felt very unmotivated to publish within Steemit, because after making some impeccable presentations in my posts, with excellent spelling and where it took me almost six hours or sometimes more, the support of the big ones was practically null and I could see that there were very bad publications that exceeded 100 or 200 SBD, simply because I was a friend of a whale.

That discourages anyone.

But lately many of my colleagues have told me that there are communities that actually support good content, regardless of the fact that, as in my case, I'm not friends with any big fish.

So I think I'll start publishing more often within Steemit. I feel motivated enough to continue creating original content.

Besides this, I was very touched when I saw the final comment of @steemitblog who wrote: "The rewards of this publication are to support the work of @fundacorazon in Venezuela and @thegreens in Cameroon".

Things like this, are what motivate us to be better, to keep growing, to support the community in everything that is needed.

I participated only once in the challenge #the1000daysofsteem. So when I start a similar challenge again, I will participate immediately.

My shopping game post is going to expire. I did not got any reward. I am newbie here, and I am losing my courage.
I will happy when my post should be voted @steemitblog @steemcurator01 @steemingcurators @steemcurator02

NIce, Good Job! the best post :)
