73 Rep Milestone! // Engagement Contest + Steem Giveaway

2개월 전


Hi Friends!

A habit that I started way back in my early Steem days, was to do some kind of giveaway every time I hit a new milestone.

I always try to hold some kind of community building contest and then give away prizes to thank you all for helping me to reach this point!

Let’s Get to Know Each Other! Contest Rules


  • Leave a comment on this post telling us something about yourself. It could be a random fun fact, or a hobby or maybe even some of your biggest dreams for this year.

  • Reply to at least one other persons comment. This is where it gets fun!! Let’s get to know each other better!

That’s it. No lie. I like to keep my contests simple! So I don’t have any rules saying you have to upvote this post, follow me, or re-Steem it.

If you want to see more contests that follow this kind of methodology - then check out @contestkings! They do a daily contest recap so you can find more contests happening on the Steem blockchain.

The Prize


I’m giving away 10 Steem! The contest closes when this post pays out in 7 days. I’m just going to randomly pick two people whose comments I really enjoyed and give them 5 Steem each!

Hugs to you all!


Still can’t believe that it’s been over a year and a half since I joined this place and have literally spent hours here every day since. Being on Steem has totally changed my world, and allowed me to make tons of awesome friends. Many of which I’ve met in person multiple times all over the world.

Thanks for being here and for hanging out with me. I can’t wait to see all your comments below and get to know you even better!

XO, Lea

Proof or scam @mattclarke

I'll have to have a rummage in the garage. The blockchain is forever. Can't have this hanging over me.

·

Wow @mattclarke.... Just WOW!!

I got some spelling for you, mate.

Excuse my retarded Welsh ass... N V S?

Pics or it didnt happen! But seriously, whats an egg cup?

Little holders for hard-boiled eggs. I don't have these guys, but I want them :)

Does America not have egg cups?

·

Well to be fair, I don’t get out much

·

Here's @mattclarke's real egg cups....

·

I had play the Rotating egg.
Once There have many Rotating eggs.
Unfortunately, I all gave away them.

·

Oh... I wanna see a pic of your collection ;-)

Congratz on the milestone! <3 It's a good habit to celebrate them, although I often forget :')

A random thing about me: I still have some Christmas decoration in my living room! Just seem to not be able to say goodbye to the lights now it's still dark and rainy outside. I made a pact with myself to clean them up within a week after my neighbours clean up theirs - they still have some lights hanging too. I think I was pretty smart making this pact since I put the responsibility in someone else's hands :P (And what happens if they made the same pact? Waiting for me to clean up mine? Maybe they'll still be there next Christmas... :'))

Anyway, what am I talking about Christmas, you clearly spending time in summer :-) Enjoy!

·

If I would let them, my family would keep up Christmas decorations year round. I don't mind the festivities, but I am always concerned with the higher electric bills. Thanks for sharing. I hope you and your neighbors can work out your pact.

·
·

It's already February but I saw Christmas decorations in my hometown. Still Christmas in summer like you. Good sharing my dear.

Thanks for leaving a comment. It is still winter where I leave, so during the first weekend with nice weather, everyone in town took down the Christmas decorations. I am glad that you can still enjoy the decorations!

Thank you for sharing.

Hahah love the pact! That would be totally hilarious if you guys ended up having a Christmas light show down.

Thanks for leaving a comment and jumping into this contest!

It's a funny Christmas in February that will last up to the summer.

First of all, congratulations on achieving the 73 @coruscate! Great move putting this contest out so we all can get to know each other better through your comment section!
So here we go, something no one knows about me yet: (it came into my mind when you mentioned the fishing part): I can't stand it to touch a living fish, so every time I was going fishing, I needed someone taking the fish from the hook! hahaha now in my 30th I still think it is the same, haven't been fishing though for a long time!
Anyway, I love your content, especially your vlogs (and the SteemSisterShow) and I hope we will meet soon! Couldn't make it to the SF3 but planning already on SF4 - wherever it will be! Maybe we will meet at some point at one of the next DTube Forums! This year, I will start it here in Barcelona, next year we'll see! Have a great time at Anarchapulco. Best greetings from Barcelona

That is funny @hauptmann.

So live fish freak you out--do you avoid fish in your diet as well?

I go fishing every summer with my kids--it is one of my favorite trips every year. We go to a small lake in southern Utah named Panguitch (which mean "Big Fish" in the American Indian language of this area).

·
·

Hey there @bigpanda thanks for replying directly! As a matter of fact, I love eating all kind of fish. As well I don’t have any problem preparing it. Give me a full (not anymore alive) fish and I take care of the rest making a nice meal out of it. I really should start attacking this demon as my son is 4 now and soon might ask me taking him for fishing. What should I say then??? „Sure let’s go, but you have to grab the fish yourself“?😂
Great to hear the time with your kids out in the nature is your favorite! I had the same with my dad, spending nights out at the lake, fishing and preparing the fresh catch to a nice fish soup!
Nice to meet you! Best greetings from Barcelona

Oh @hauptmann! Are u in Barcelona?!?!?
Can I send you a Steemitri The Mannequin Postcard?!?!
Big plastic hug from Switzerland!

·
·

Hey there @steemitri sure thing, haven’t heard about you before but how cool you send these cards all over the world. You might need an real address here in our decentralized world. How do you want me to send it? Best greetings from Barcelona

Posted using Partiko iOS

·

That's really funny .. hahaha ..You don't like to touch fish... I also don't feel good touching alive fish.. May be i am afraid... :D @hauptmann

·
·

Hey there @priyanarc yeaaah it’s more about the movement of the fish, you know when then try to escape so they kind of shake on the hook that’s what makes me not touching them. But hey, I might just try it again soon (with thick 🧤) hahahahaha
Have a great day, best greetings from Barcelona

ya.. just give a try.. May be this time you can make that mission from impossible to possible.. 😁😁😁 @hauptmann

·

Aww thank you!! I’m so glad you enjoy the Steem Sister Show too! It’s really an excuse for me and my sister to get together and have fun hanging out every week! Hehe

I soo wish I could make it to Barcelona for the dtube event this May, but I’m sure our paths will cross sometime soon!

Have an awesome day and thanks for joining in on the fun! 😃

I should also mention that I toootally get it on touching slimy fish. That’s probably my least favorite part of fishing. 😬

Posted using Partiko iOS

·

hahaha.. It's high time you start touching live fishes @hauptmann even though it can be scary for someone who hasn't tried it before. 😂

Last Friday, I went on a Daddy/Daughter date at our church. I have 5 daughters so my evening was filled with a lot of beautiful ladies (beautiful like my wife).

When I told people about my date, they asked, "So you are going to take all of your daughters?" What a silly question? Of course! We had a great time together. I am a blessed daddy!

·

Aww that’s such a sweet story!! 5 girls is a lot! You must have had a fun night!

I grew up in a family of 6 kids - so I get the whole big family dynamic! What a fun adventure for you.

·
·

We had a blast. My wife and our 3-month-old son stayed at home. It is nice when people get the big family dynamic. It is a wild and wonderful adventure!

·

Yes, father - daughters relationship and bonding can't be define. Looks like you had a wonderful time with your daughters.

I have #SSS tattooed across my chest for @steemsistershow, and #wineanxiety around my right wrist. Okay those are lies, but I will use this opportunity to say that I have NO tattoos! Now everyone knows!

·

Hahaha AMAZING comment!!

Ps... I don’t have any tatoos either! Neither does Mary... SSS is tatooless. We’ve talked about maybe getting a sister tattoo... but I would have to REALLY love it to go through with it. 😬

·
·

We should all get an S! Would that be enough to qualify me as an honorary member of #sss??

Awesome! Congratulations! I remember a while back that you did challenges like this. Cool initiative once again.

Here's one of the many completely useless skills I have:

I'm pretty good at playing the nose flute.

A nose flute, one might ask... To give you an idea:


(not me by the way) :)

Happy Monday!

·

Hahaha watching this just MADE MY DAY! Partly because I love this song, and second because I didn’t even know nose flutes was a thing. How fun!! I sense a big dtube nose flute career in your future! 😜 Let me know if you ever post anything on it! I’d love to check it out.

Either way, thanks for the fun comment! 😃

·
·

Uh ooh, I was a bit worried you would say that :P But I guess I'm not brave enough share my nose-flute skills with the www :)

·
·
·

I know right! I can recommend everyone to invest a dollar into a nose-flute :)

·

Until I saw that picture, I was worried the nose flute may have been a dodgy euphemism.....

Well, congratulation for hitting 73 rep.. Well, really loving your concept and idea of the contest. Because in this way we will able to connect with more people and get to know each other.. Well, right now my only focus on my carrier because my post-graduation is going to be end very soon on International Management Organizations and i will be entrepreneur than so kind of focusing on that.... For steem , Right now my plan is holding steem, focusing on my steem power. As, i love to interact with people so i will make my friends more here....

That's all... Little bit simple but that's me ... :D Thank you @coruscate for this amazing contest...

The simpler the better @priyanarc, all the best with your endeavours

I can only agree!!
I´m going through a similar process, I'm currently on the first year of my master´s degree in Management.

Congratulations Lea with this great milestone!
So if topic of this contest To know each other I would like to tell about my hobbies. Among usual kinds of sport, fishing and photography I have the spesial one it's Radio Amateuring. It combines both the sports component and the technical part. And in my opinion it is useful not only for physical but also mental development.

That’s so cool @travoved!! It’s always so interesting to learn about people’s unexpected hobbies.

Radio has a very special place in my heart, because I drive a lot and the people behind the Radio make me company all year long, a lot of hours per day.

·
·

I'm glad @diogosantos that radio helps to you in your life! Do you mean Radio broadcast or Ham radio? It's a different things and for me now closer Ham radio.

·
·

I meant Radio broadcast, but I don't understand much about the technicalities behind it!

Huge congrats @coruscate on your achievement.

A random fact about me--I love black licorice. Best kind is that soft chewy stuff from Australia.

·

Thanks so much @bigpanda!! Oh man... I can’t stand black licorice. 😬 If I ever get any as a gift - I’ll know to send em to you! 😜

Posted using Partiko iOS

·

Ohhhh Yes! Here! Me too! I love that, one of my favorite candies next to Gummi bears and Raffaello. Just last time, my Swedish colleague brought some salted licorice from home, and he said already it’s hardcore, that was to much for me and I couldn’t finish it.

Congrats @coruscate 73 is huge..
I have a ridic sweet tooth but I don’t consume anything with sugar in it.

Posted using Partiko iOS

·

Oh man you must have some serious self control! I also suffer from a crazy sweet tooth. 😔

I’ve starter using monk fruit as a sweetener. It is a natural sugar free alternative that doesn’t have a bad aftertaste like stevia.

Do you use a sugar free sub - or just cut sugar all together?

Thanks for your comment!

·
·

@priyanarc @coruscate, I apologise for responding so late, I relocated to a new country.

It’s been a process actually, started with cutting out refined sugar (white), I use to bake with it.
Then some brown sugar for a while but figured, who am I kidding?

Resorted to getting my fix from chocolate, didn’t hold up, still the same thing.

I get my fix from fruits and juices these days, pure honey when I can find that, no sweetener no sugar in my pantry anymore..

Won’t say I’ve nailed it down 100%, it’s still work in progress haha 😊

Really you have great control power. Do you zero cal instead of pure sugar?

Hello Lea!!!😊👋
I am Guido and I am from Italy🇮🇹
I am a great lover of the biggest symbols of my country: Food🍕🍝🍷 and History .
These lovely passions pushed me to travel all around Italy knowing a lot of different people and places. I have discovered that travels are another beautiful way to know people and other places and so I started to travel all around the world.✈️🛳️🚗
At the end I understand that my greatest passion is to know what is around me: people, places or everything else. This your initiative is awesome also in this way.
Thanks!😉👍

Aww thanks so much for the lovely comment Guido!! Sounds like you have had many amazing adventures. Traveling through Italy (or should I say eating my way through Italy) is definitely on my bucket list. I’ll have to hit you up for some suggestions whenever I end up taking that trip! 😊

I like to go to the beaches and enjoy its sunrises. I like rock music and blues, I play guitar, keyboard and drums. I like to play football and go to the gym.

Congratulations :)
73 is wow!!!
I have my e-poms poms out and waving it in the air for you :D
I am at 63 and it feels like forever, so I can only imagine how much work you must have put in to get there :)

Something about me that nobody knows... I feel like I might have said more about me on my one year plus on the SteemVerse than I've done in my lifetime... hahaha... thinking thinking thinking
I am very scared of dogs. I have had a couple of incidents with them. One of them was when i was a tween I think, along with my Aunties and my brother we went for a walk. So as we were passing this house, the dogs started barking. But the gate was closed. No big deal right. So we didn't make eye contact and kept walking. It was a pretty big house and by the time we reached the other end of the wall, there was another gate to the house and it was open. The dogs came running out. One of them was a Dalmation. He looked big. We ran, we ran like crazy. My flipflops came off but we just kept running. The dogs stopped just outside the gate and didn't follow us but I tell you, when I saw the gate open and the dogs running out.... I think my heart stopped beating hahahaha

Fun fact:
I own more value in LEGO than in back account.
Which could be read in 2 ways. Yeah, you'r thinking right, LEGO are extremely worth it. 😂

·

Nothing wrong with being a Lego addict.....

·
·

Surely not @brickmanbrad!
Great to see another LEGO enthusiast ✌️

·
·

There are a few of us poking around. Tell us a bit about your collection. What is your favourite theme?

·
·
·
·

Modulars for sure! What about you?
I've a lot of Architectures and old HP too. Rarest piece is Lego Tyne Bridge (500 piece extremely limited edition).

Nice. I'm very limited in terms of what I am able to display. I do have a couple of small Star Wars sets set up, as well as the Delorean and Ecto-1 Ideas sets. The rest must wait until my daughter is a bit older and can resist the urge to play with them.

I'm looking forward to unpacking my childhood Lego and sharing those memories with her.

Congratulations on the milestone and although this #fact isn't a patch on @mattclarke 's egg cup collection (can't believe @goldmatters didn't know what an egg cup was!!)

My random interesting fact - I can impersonate the mating call of a collard dove so well, I currently have 2 separate love interests that come and see me when I'm out my back garden. It's a very novel party piece to show off when we have friends over for bbqs and drinks. I'm sure Mrs welshstacker gets jealous on times.

My love hobby : Collecting other things.
Such as stone / shell / bottle cap / stamp / phone card / cool wind card /

My dream is
Collect all that I lack
For example, China's annual festival stamp 12 animals, I have no collection with all them.
I am like exchanged with friends, not like to buy them, like the feeling for exchange them with friends.

I am pretty good with a yo yo.

Congrats on another milestone...

I used to play volleyball when I was in high school until I broke my tibia, and about 200 pounds ago. 🤣🤣🤣

Wow! Nice to hear someone making like this in Steemit. So, I would like to introduce myself,
I am a 49 years grandmother who worked away from my country Philippines for a greener pasture intended for my family. Letting you know I'm @olivia08, it's my pleasure to have this contest for the first time. You are so be utiful and I love the way how you make steemit alive. I am already one year in Steemit that changed my life. I made steemit my leisure time making myself escaped from stress of my kind of job and missing my family. I gained seld eSteem the time I became a Steemian, meeting so many friends and earned at the same time.
I hope to be your friend and thank you.
Keep up your good work and God bless.

It's me,

Congratulations @coruscate - well done on hitting 73. It's an interesting choice for a milestone. What's the significance of the number?

Now, something about me, something about me, what dark secrets do I hold? You already I know I have a somewhat warped, and often inappropriate sense of humour, so that's not news.....

The closest thing to news is that my wife is trusting me to be mature enough to look after our daughter this week while she travels interstate for work. I suspect it will be really be Ivy (the three year old) looking after me.

My teeth hurts badly when I stand close to a High Quality Production Speaker so I must have to shift away.
