Perseverance Leads To Appreciation #fff #69

I’m doing something I said I wasn’t going to do which is something I’ve never done until now with the exception of paying taxes, work, injuries, work-injuries, sunburns, taxes, food poisoning, prison 🤔 (I probably didn’t need to divulge that one), car wrecks, taxes, tripped over air in public, burned the roof of my mouth, taxes, ran out of TP (@farm-mom), singed my eyelashes, and I’ve never, repeat, never written a run on sentence that’s sofa king long the thing’s an opening paragraph all by itself.

Week before last... Hello?? “Hello-0o-o-O-o” :knock-knock: Where’d everybody go? 🤷‍♂️ All I said was something that doesn’t pertain to the last 15 minutes of instant gratification. :crickets: ‘Week before last,’ I didn’t post anything and gave myself time to post seven days straight the following week (last week). I was pleasantly surprised with the results from that week off—it felt good. Seeing how a week on, week off proved satisfying, I was en route to attempt two weeks off and see what, if any, benefits that would add to my real world existence. Then, just a few days ago, change of plans—I got a return call from @bluemist in response to this proposal.

In the 69th week (this week) of hosting this anything #food goes competition and funding the winners week in, week out, from our own pocket, in addition to your selfless contributions, The Coolest Kitchen On The Blockchain finally attracted a sponsor. Ladies and gents, I’d like to introduce you to The Coolest Sponsor On The Blockchain—@appreciator! In case you’re new to this platform, @appreciator is a manual curation account owned and operated by @bluemist who’s responsible for this daily curation and we couldn’t be more thankful for their support. 🙏🏻

What this means for the kitchen is, the @appreciator vote, in support of our contenders post each Sunday, will be dished out 100% toward the winning entries offering a first, second, and third place prize leaving only the SP to the @foodfightfriday account enabling us to increase our upvote strength toward your entries. We will not pocket any of the profit from this partnership. Bonus—we have their attention now which means random appreciation for your quality #fff contenders, though not guaranteed, is a possibility.

The exact values are still being adjusted and will be finalized prior to the announcement of round 69’s winner—you’ll be the first to know the specifics. For example, we’re leaning toward a model that looks something like this and, if you have a better model in mind, we’re all eyes: 👀

  • First Place - 50 Steem.
  • Second Place - 20 Steem.
  • Third Place - 10 Steem.

What this also means is, now more than ever, we need your (yes, you) participation as a #community. The @foodfightfriday account has been a community ran project since its creation which means everyone is welcome to join the fun and everyone is welcome to vote—VOTE! You know who you are. We appreciate each and every appearance you’ve made—we miss your votes. Please don’t forget to return to the contenders post during the week and cast your vote—no self votes. This newly acquired partnership won’t work without your participation. <— Repeat. We’ve achieved something substantial as a community, something we’re excited about, it’s gratifying when hard work is recognized.

To celebrate this achievement, I’ve reached out to as many past @foodfightfriday contestants I could think of in an effort to gather everyone around the table tonight—a reunion. On behalf of myself, @jlsplatts, @idig, and the entire @foodfightfriday family, thank you—welcome to the newly sponsored @foodfightfriday! The Coolest Kitchen On The Blockchain just got cooler. 🥶

Ka’pow!

This contender’s about wrapped up and I still haven’t attached a food image. Oh well! @foodfightfriday is cool like that. We invite all of you chefs to get in on this, both trained and untrained to show off your skills, list your measurements or don’t, we appreciate it when you do but it isn’t required, just make sure it’s food related. Post your cooking videos. Got a favorite cookbook you’d like to share? Share it with us. We welcome your restaurant reviews, pastries, ingredient discrepancies, tours around the farm, it’s all food related, we invite all of you farmers and homesteaders and just plain old food eaters to make a mess with us—if it’s “food related” it flies. Pretty simple.

There’s a couple of rules you need to know, you might want to write these down, ready? Tag #fff. It would be cool if you made it your firs tag but it isn’t necessary—rules are made to be broken. 🤔 I think that’s it. Oh, wait! There’s one more, this one’s pretty technical—Friday, what today is, post your contenders on Friday and, last but not least, that vote thing I was telling you about, the part about please don’t forget to come back during the week and cast your vote for me your favorite contender. It’s that easy. Ok, just a few more sentences paragraphs and this contender’s lights out!

Follow the @foodfightfriday curation trail and help support food related articles on the blockchain by visiting https://steemauto.com and searching foodfightfriday. Stop by our Discord server where every day is Friday. Before you leave Steemauto, make sure you follow the @appreciator curation trail, too, and support their 100% manual curation account dedicated to supporting undervalued content.

Same place next week, deal? Thanks for hangin out with me tonight and thanks again for all of your support—@foodfightfriday wouldn’t be here without you. Enjoy the rest of your Friday, #steemit, and have an even better weekend.

Luckiest guy I know! 😘

Amazing!!!!!! This is so exciting! Fantastic @dandays and #fff team :) Love your posts, that was one long sentency-paragraph, lol Great things are happening with the #fff community. Woot!

·

Ahh yeeeeah, exciting isn’t it? Couldn’t have done it without you, @birdsinparadise, really. To have dedication (autocorrect had “decoration” which would’ve totally worked, by the way) from people such as yourself, trained and seasoned chefs, support this community the way you do is what makes these good things happen.

Thanks for throwing down all of these weeks, it isn’t the same without you. Things just got a whole lot messier too.

And anytime you wanna drop off some encouraging words like that, like you’re so good at doing, you have a front row seat every.single.time. 😉 Thank you, chef!

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

You guys are the kings of the jungle indeed! I'm a newbie #fff contender but have been amazed by the good people I've met here. Your tenacity in keeping the tag going for so many weeks on your own steem, has been amazing; and now your perseverence has paid dividends! Thank you for that #fff team, and a thank you to the sponsors @bluemist and @appreciator for this exciting news, much appreciated!

You are welcome, already feeling good about this

You’ve been a huge help, @lizelle. Newbie with a veteran spirit is more like it. Your food articles, food pictures, and just your whole South African blog and kind, Christian spirit isn’t a secret, we all see it. We’re glad you continue to keep throwing down with us—thank you!

I didn’t sign in at all yesterday, took the day off and only put up a post last night, didn’t check it or anything. 18 frikkin contenders this week—incredible show of support! i Haven’t visited contenders and well, I’m just now getting to these responses, congratulations on your reward!! Lizelle smashes another homerun. I haven’t got a chance to read it yet, I’m making my way there next, can’t wait.

Thank you for all of your encouraging words, @lizelle, I’m glad we met. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

NAILED IT!!! Dude great job with this and who has the best PR guy in the Blockchain... @foodfightfriday does. I need to get my buns in the oven and cook up my contender. I just got done grubbing at a local joint called The Maple Counter then went and spent some time bed shoppin’
EB11C7D3-36C2-4620-B4F9-B50864FAB8A9.jpeg
Perfect thing to do when you stuff yourself full of local restaurant goodness!!

Oh ya, and I need to go back and fetch my work phone that fell out of my pocket. Oops my bad. Lol

·

The PR thing and the Wordsmith part really means a lot, and I’m not just running my thumbs. Thanks, man. I really appreciate the confidence.

Now about that bed... what was wrong with the couch? You can’t even sleep in the house anymore?!

·
·

This way I get a new bed every night. If I feel like sleeping in a love seat by myself... I can do that too. This place has so many options it’s amazing. I even put my feet up on the coffee table around here and nobody says a things. Probably because it’s dark and no one is around.

Nice post with lots of good info. @appreciator has upvoted me in the past and it was soooo, well, appreciated👍Love how #fff has faithful followers, even when ya miss a kitchen mess from time to time. @bluemist, thank you very much.

TP shortage tends to make me nervous, I have seen the results of this dilemma when my boys couldn't find TP, so they used paper towels. Holy, GET the plunger quick, please don't over flow. Man this sits has got to stop.
😁🤷‍♂️
I saw @puravidaville has made a huge come back, oh yea! Missed her, going to jump over to see her later.

·

You’ve been a huge part of this @farm-mom, exciting isn’t it? You and @thebigsweed both, thank you for all of your support. I shot him a line on discord with a heads up to this article a week before I released it—never heard back.

He was probably taking a nap or forgetting he needed to take a nap—some old dude stuff. 👍🏿

Eh, your contender this week was hilarious! Had me doing all kinda laughing before Pura woke up so I had to really expand my chest and seal my lips like I was playing a tuba. <—Ima pat myself on the back for that visual... “thank you, thank you very much.”

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Mrs. Jurg! Mwah, please give some knuckles to The Sweed for me.

·
·

Good morning @dandays, this is so cool to have @appreciator on board.
This month is so busy for us, lots of birthdays, jaunts to Jersey, company and lots of cooking. So in between all this @thebigsweed opens up a DYI, as we speak, he is painting the master bedroom, designing a whole new and different look to the walls . This afternoon, we are going shopping for new flooring. The man just doesn't stop, but he promised me he would treat me to a nice lunch out in "the city".
Check your messages, I think he got back to you. KNUCKLES it is.
Have a wonderful day my friend.

·

You are welcome, its good to you already participate in this.

Thanks for shootout, already excited for this

·

That makes a whole bunch of us @bluemist, thank you. Things are about to get a whole lot messier. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Well thank goodness your wife brought something to the table this week. Here I was with my fork ready to go...😜

Nah, in all seriousness the news about @appreciator is pretty darn awesome! Great to see all the support that @bluemist spreads around to help support some of these really fun and engaging contests. Definitely goes a long way to keeping this ol' blockchain fun.

Now to search around and see who else's table I can snitch a bite from while I wait for my dinner to get cooked...

·

Its good to all the familiar names already participating in #fff

·

Only about 18 of em—got dang! I didn’t jump on yesterday to take at least one day off, I knew I’d post last night and then check in this morning... oh crap, I’m really behind now.

Yeah, no food on this one, plants, more of a whitepaper kinda—she’s got my back, though. 😉 And I almost said “and front” right here, put it in parenthesis and all and then decided against it.

(dude I’m funny)

Thanks for throwing down with us, it really isn’t the same without you. Great to be your friend @plantstoplanks! You and DK enjoy the rest of your weekend, thank you for all of your support, every.single.bit of it.

Sincerely,

The Luckiest Guy I Know

·
·

Always be my pleasure to add more value with some of curation project.

Thanks for reaching me out last week @dandays 😉 I just not so into food pictures lately, that's why I didn't post anything on friday 😁 but.. it's a good news about the new cooperation. Congratulations!
Taxes..taxes..taxes... why don't they t the axes?

·

Oc course, Cici. You’ve always been such a great challenger, we appreciate your posts. I don’t call just anyone ‘the sweetest chef.’ I’m glad I waited this long to respond to this because I see now that you’ve entered. I’m making my way over o those next. 👍🏿

You rock, @cicisaja!

·
·

But.. why did I missed your food photos here? 😂😂😂 oohh c'mon.. this is #fff

Tripped over air and prison???

·

That’s funny! You’ve never tripped over your own feet or something that wasn’t there while in public? I know it isn’t just me!

With only 5% of the worlds population and 25% of the worlds prison population in the US, I know for a fact that other part isn’t just me. Yes, my friend, @janton, I haven’t always been the God fearing person you’ve grown to appreciate—“guilty!”

I sure do appreciate you keeping an eye on me, sir!

·
·

Howdy today sir dandays! I'm confused, what about the prison comment? Did you explain that and I missed it? As far as I know I've never tripped over my own feet in public, do you think that's common or you just trying to make yourself feel better? lol.

·
·
·

It could very well just be me, my wife, and pretty much everyone I’ve ever walked near. I’ve watched so many people trip over nothing, it’s routine people watching. Or something like preparing to step too low when the step is barely an inch always gets a good laugh. Remind me not to watch you walk, sir, you’re definitely too good at it. 😉

Nah, I’ve never told anyone about my time served, sir.

·
·
·
·

Now if I ever make it to town I'll have to hang around watching people to see if they trip over air or if that's just a CA thing. lol.

I understand about the time served but can you tell me if they treated you like trash in the jail like everyone here is treated? (Except by Mrs. J. and one or two other guards.) The majority treat the inmates like scum.

·
·
·
·
·

Actually, no. The guards were very strict and followed orders—told me when to shower, when to eat, wake up, etc. but never made an issue out of it.

In all honesty, @janton, no guard ever intentionally disrespected me or anyone else around me that i saw and we were never mistreated or abused. I wish I could say the same thing about uniformed officers on the streets but I would be lying.

I wasn’t the same person between between 18-22, sir. My charges were dropped on that one, Janton, but I had to waive all of my rights, including my right to a speedy trial which cost me a lengthy stay I’m not proud of but I wouldn’t be the person I am today if I didn’t make the mistakes I’ve made and continue to make.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Oh yeah, thank goodness no one is the same as at that age range. I'm glad the guards weren't jackass jerks like ours are here, they love to do anything they can to make the lives of the inmates miserable and then laugh at them.
