Pay it Forward Entry – Week 42

This is my submission for the [Pay it forward Curation contest]( run by @thedarkhorse and @pifc.

Well, due to an unfortunate discovery during the week, I’ve been a bit more focussed on the anti-curation front this week. Namely, hunting down plagiarists and spammers and collecting bounties on them. I know that @steemcleaners and other flagging operations can occupy a bit of a contentious position with regards to some Steemians, but I do support their activities as I do think that the abuse that they try to counter is really quite detrimental to the STEEM chain as a whole.

Anyway, I digress… on to the more positive aspects of our interactions here on STEEM!


Crypto but NOT crypto!

With a name like @abitcoinskeptic (REP 55), you would rightly expect that you would be reading a blog of either market technical analysis or blind shilling about random coins. However, what do get from this blog is an unexpected surprise!

In this [latest post,]( @abitcoinskeptic writes about his aquarium and his little family of fishes and minnows that make their home there. It is a pleasant read, and their style of writing is quite conversational and engaging. Great blog to follow to have a bit of a pleasant read!

If fish are not your cup of tea, there are also [cooking posts]( or [Crypto posts]( Please note that these are close or past payout, so vote accordingly!


Life on a farm

One of the best things about Steem in comparison to Facebook or other social platforms is the fact that I get to read about different people’s lives, and things that I would not normally find in my daily routine (My Facebook feed is mostly stuffed with musicians doing a good chunk of self-promotion and humble bragging…). So, @andiekins (REP 43) presents a window into a life that I have no concept of, that of [being a farmer’s wife!](

It appears that she has made a sea change, as she describes in the [featured post]( and has traded her city life for one of that on the farm. It is a trade off of various advantages and disadvantages, and it takes a brave and committed family to take the jump together! Anyway, the post is also a great read, and a nice insight into a different life!
