Steem Saturday - Coming Together - May 16th 2020

2개월 전

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week's edition of Steem Saturday! A lot happened this week, and I will discuss it here.

Coming Together!

First, I would like to talk about all of the new users I found this week. Please note that an equal share (about 16 percent) of this posts rewards will be given to each of these new users, with the remaining rewards (about 4 percent) going to @steemit.

Welcome to Steem!

While there were a lot of introduction posts this week, I only read so many, and I could only include so many. Specifically, the site was down for a bit this week, and I was not able to comment on new users posts. These users had some of my favorite introductions this week. Please note that a star next to the username means the introduction post was Steem Exclusive.

UserDateDescription
@peaceafriksblog*5/15/2020In this introduction, Inetianbor discusses herself as both an introvert and an extrovert at times. She is writer of both fiction as well as nonfiction, and a blogger. She also enjoys Gospel music! I hope she finds much success here on Steem!
@alsaud*5/11/2020Md. Al-Saud Sarkar is a health worker from Bangladesh. His aim is to help people, and because of that aim, he tries not to miss work at all! In addition, he provides his patients with nutritional advice in regards to which foods are healthiest to eat! It was interesting to read about his life, and I hope that he does well here on Steem!
@luna-ku*5/15/2020Ku is a native Spanish speaker from Peru. In addition to Spanish, she understands a little Portuguese, and is learning English! She hopes her time here on Steem will help with that. She specializes in visual art, but also loves traveling, gastronomy, photography, the natural - spiritual life, learning about ancient cultures, magic, and natural medicine. All of these topics will make for great posts here on Steem, and I look forward to seeing them!

Please help make all of these new users feel welcome!

Friday 5/15/2020
Yesterday saw yet another community challenge. This one is to come up with three ways to improve your local area. You can post a submission for a potential upvote from the Steemit team. Learn more about this day of Steem.

I would encourage new users to follow the account @steemitblog. There is currently a 100 day project going on in which something new is announced each day. Some of these announcements are challenges that you could submit to! Make sure to stay informed!

Steeming Curators

@ciska, and @cryptokannon have launched a voting trail through their account @steemingcurators. If you join this trail, you could potentially receive an upvote each day depending on how much Stake you commit. The trail has grown to over 100,000sp backing it, and I am happy to say that I am one of the accounts following it! If you are interested, I recommend you check out the trail, and consider joining. Here is the post.

Twitter Proposal

@stephenkendal announced an interesting proposal to include dollar value, and related hashtags in tweets sharing Steem articles. Check out his post!

What's Going on With Me?

Wizarding World/Harry Potter

I will admit that I was not insanely active this week because I dedicated a lot of time to reading through Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I look forward to posting my initial thoughts. But, a lot happened this week with JK Rowling asking about Bitcoin on Twitter. I just learned about it from @stephenkendal, and sent a tweet asking her to check out the Harry Potter community here on Steem. I would appreciate any support you can give (either by retweeting, or liking, or making your own tweet about it). I think this is the perfect opportunity to try to grow the Harry Potter community here on Steem! Click the picture to see the Tweet!

Hi! Thanks for the mention of @steemingcurators!
I really appreciate it!

We have over 140K behind the trail right now, and those numbers are growing by the day! Thank you for being part of it!

JK Rowling on Steem is going to give this things a huge boost ! More power to steem !

Just to be clear, JK Rowling is not joining Steem. I doubt she even knows it exists. I just tried to send her a tweet about the Wizarding World community here (if you are interested in HP, I invite you to join). I would appreciate your help in trying to contact her if you have a twitter. The tweet is linked above.
