I would like to invite the TRULY passionate #STEEM individuals to submit an application to join our Power House Creatives community on Discord. #Steem needs more people who are prepared to go the extra mile, bend over backwards and put in the extra hours - No matter your content genre - if you are someone that GIVES YOUR ALL then we would LOVE to welcome you to our team! I will open the comments of this post to the members of our community and that will speak for itself.
I would also like to take this opportunity to HIGHLIGHT the ENORMOUSLY POSITIVE IMPACT which our members have on the #STEEM blockchain!
WHO WE ARE AND HOW WE OPERATE
As most of you already know our community is closed. This does not mean that we are trying to keep people out or that we ignore those who aren’t members – it simply means that we are focused on keeping our standards of content high and our member commitment higher.
I am not going to sugar-coat things for anybody, because it would not make any sense whatsoever, nor would it serve anybody fruitfully - long-term. Our community is incredibly proactive - and DRIVING the success and growth of the people within it is our FUNDAMENTAL PURPOSE, because this is how they are able to do the same in return for other individuals in communities beyond our own! Our reach extends WAY beyond our own walls and this is one of the primary reasons why it is important to ALL OF US that each of our members are able to hold our flag high wherever they may roam.
We work hard, we play hard - we support one another through thick and thin, we know whats going on in our "3D" lives and no matter what it is - we are there for each other! Yes, there are daily responsibilities and obligations. Yes, there are things that fly within our walls and things that definitely don’t. Yes, we require quite a bit from you as an individual but you get it tenfold in return and ANY ONE of our members will gladly testify to this. Absolutely EVERYTHING is catered for and considered… including those times when you will NOT be able to fulfill your obligations. It simply requires the following of our procedures, which once you have grasped – are not complicated at all.
Everybody in our community jokes about my “boot” because they know that there are certain things that never were and never will be tolerated within our walls… and when they surface, those people will very quickly meet my infamous “boot” sending them out the door – or at least showing them that it is open. A few such things would be the likes of: not doing what you promised to do when joining, not being a team player, plagiarism, spamming, causing trouble with other members etc. These are all no-brainers really, so should not be much of a shock or challenge to anyone who is actually on Steemit (or any other platform) to make it a better place for everyone!
We may be a relatively small collective, but we have approx. 118 members from over 30 countries and that continues to grow. Most of our members are also key players in some of Steemits other highly regarded and supportive discord communities and initiatives - and all of us at “home” know without question or doubt that every single one of our members will make us proud with whatever they do – wherever they go – and that is precisely how we intend to keep it. Simple as that! No, this kind of “ethos” does not work for everyone – and that is perfectly fine - Each to their own. The people who have done the “putting in” are the ones that understand what they “get out” of it all ;) We are a team that is here for the long haul! We are here to give #STEEM our ALL and if that resonates with you, then we would absolutely LOVE to have you join us!
We are all really excited to open our doors and arms to some fresh talent – so looking forward to seeing what you peeps will dish our way ;)
PLEASE NOTE THAT APPROVED APPLICATIONS ARE AFFORDED AT OUR DISCRETION
PHC MEMBER IMPACT ON THE STEEM PLATFORM!
These are just a FEW of the initiatives that our members have founded. As we have ALWAYS said... The WINGS of the PHC community spread FAR and WIDE!
Initiated by @xcountytravelers and with the helping hands of amazing individuals such as @thekittygirl and @brittandjosie, it is a place where Steemians can gather, get answers to burning questions, and learn about all the wonderful communities, front-ends, projects, and oddities of the Steem blockchain. Our goal is to provide some basic education regarding the Steem blockchain and the Discord app, and then help newbies connect with other communities and projects where they can feel at-home and thrive
conceived by Ren & Scott of the @xcountytravelers account. For over six months, they have been welcoming new Steemians and trying to point them towards resources that will answer their questions and help them feel more at-home here, as well as introducing them to the rest of the Steem Community. Currently on the team to assist @xcountytravelers in their tireless efforts are the following awesome folk: @brittandjosie, @brisby, @derekrichardson, and @jamerussell.
Founded by @mariannewest - this is a true home for all creative writers, to not only explore and enjoy the beauty of your talents but to push and test their boundaries. With regular challenges you will NEVER be at a loss as to what to post whilst you grow as a writer.
The brainchild of @cheese4ead, @nickyhavey, @wales, @plantstoplanks and @foxyspirit - In the Power House Creatives Discord, we love to talk about and rate our favourite movies, music and various other cool things. Many a time has been spent listing out our top picks but then we thought, “Why not expand this and let everyone have a go?” After much discussion about how we can expand this to the rest of the community, we decided to create the PHC Top 3 Monthly Contest, where you can join in the fun and win prizes as well. Each month, we'll start a new contest where we'll be asking you what your top 3 picks are for the chosen topic of that round by writing a blog post along with an entry fee. This entry fee is not only to make you eligible for the contest but to build the prize pool as well. The entry fee will be clarified when we start the contest but if your 3 nominations score the most points you can win a brilliant prize!
STEEMIT FRUITS AND VEGGIES MONDAY COMPETITION - The brainchild of @plantstoplanks - Take and post at least 3 photos of fruits and vegetables. (It can be variety or just one kind from the garden, supermarket or anywhere you wish, PLANT BASED RECIPES ARE WELCOMED). 1st PRIZE 7.00 Steem - 2nd PRIZE 4.00 Steem - 3rd PRIZE 1.50 Steem
Created (on January 20, 2018, to be precise) by @traciyork as a way to bring together all Steemians with an interest in Tarot and tarot-related awesomeness.
Another AWESOME initiative by @traciyork - I decided to take part in NaBloPoMo (an offshoot of NaNoWriMo, which is the reason I have about a half dozen manuscripts gathering dust on my hard drive), and it helped me kickstart my WordPress blogging again. Something about being accountable, even just to myself, kept me focused and posting, even after the month ended. And thus, the idea for Steem Blog Posting Month was formed! It wasn't too difficult to come up with the acronym, SteemBloPoMo, after that. And really, that's all this is - a hash tag and a goal of writing new content for my blog & cryptoblog every day
Until next time...
Much Love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx
