CONTEST: My 2018 - This is my Hobby | 100 SBD in Prizes!

in #contest6 years ago (edited)

My 2018 - A @blocktrades sponsored contest.

But Nomad don´t be silly, I blog everyday about my hobbies and passions, to join this contest is like repeating my blog posts, there is nothing different, I can just post the same I´ve been posting the past 2 months...

This contest is not about you posting your drawings or you latest travel adventure, this contest has nothing to do with the way you take care of your garden or how you cooked that meal you ate last saturday, the post you will create to join this contest will not be about your latest science fiction story or analysis of your favorite coin...

This contest is about your passion, why you have it and what drives it

No no, I don´t want you to post examples of your hobby, I wan´t you to tell me about your hobby.

  • Why do you fell passion about your hobby?
  • How did you picked this hobby? Or better yet, how did this hobby picked you?
  • How long have you been doing it...? Are you learning more and more every day?
  • What is is that you love about this hobby? Do you like it because you are good at it? Do you love it because it takes away the stress? Do you enjoy it because it is challenging?
  • When do you practice it? Is it part of your daily life or do you have to go out of your routine to be able to do it?
  • Is it something you share with someone else or is this hobby YOUR thing and you do it by yourself?
  • What is going on in your mind when you do it?
  • Is your hobby a priority? Does practicing takes away time with your family or partner? Do you have it high on your priority list or is it not that important compared to family and friends?
  • Is your hobby expensive? Do you spend a lot of money when you practice it? What sacrifices you make to be able to practice your hobby?
  • Are you an amateur? An adept? An expert? What makes the differences between them? Does it depend only on skills or do you also need tools or equipment to become better?
  • Are you lucky enought that, is your hobby part of your job?
  • If you would have to explain your hobby to an alien, how would you do it?

These are just examples of how to create your post, you don´t have to talk about all of them and you can add other things you want, those are just a few guidelines in case you don´t know how to make your post!

If you want to add pictures that´s awesome! It´s even better!

Rules for the contest! Yes... there are rules :(

1.- Your post must have the title My 2018 - This is my Hobby: Here goes your hobby

Example: My 2018 - This is my Hobby: Hunting Sharks in the Pacific Ocean.

2.- The post must have at least 1,000 words. This is a post about your hobby! Give it some love and make an effort to make a long and big post!
3.- You have to use the tag "My2018" and "Thisismyhobby" otherwise I won´t be able to check out your post :(
4.- Please do NOT use the tag "blocktrades" or "sndbox".
5.- Obviously, no Plagiarism, I only want original content!
6.- Be creative, have fun!!
7.- You don´t have to upvote this post to join, but I´m askig you to Resteem it so more people can join the contest. If more people join, there is a big chance I pitch in more SBD to the prize pool.

This is another unique contest I have seen. One of my friends shared it via group chat and I came to have a look. It's very encouraging and I'm sure many will join because talking about one's hobby is second-nature. Good luck to all participants!

@hiroyamagishi I have an almost similar discovery of this post with you though I got it from discord server. I like the contest guidelines mentioned in this post and I realized its focus on personal experience in the hobby.
For this , I think I can do a post for the entry.
Good luck to your entry

ttps:// porfavor ayudenme /please upvote me give me a chance come on!

First of all, i want to thank you and the sponsors of the contest to give us a chance to win the prize and to show what we got. I really enjoyed writing mine as it made me very emotional. Check my entry out. Thank all of you and God bless all of you ^_^

My Entry

Much love,

Dang I just did a post the other day about my photography journey that would have been suitable perhaps as an entry for this contest so my timing was terrible but if I can find the time to come up with a post for this contest that isn’t just the same again as that post I will do an entry

Thanks for hosting such a cool contest

Ps Ré your comment on another persons entry for the sandbox quest and am I entering I didn’t want to hijack her post with a response and a link to my post but I hope it’s ok to do it here

This post covers part one of the quest but also explains that due to a few reasons I just won’t be able to find the time or get out to get new photos for the quest so as much ch as I would love to try out for the sandbox I just cannot at this stage.
With an office move on Friday and borderline pneumonia at present time is limited and I cannot risk going out in the cold here for photoshoots

That said I did that post to spread the word of the quest as well as told a few photog friends

Fantastic competition! Any idea on the prize structure yet?

I think this shouldn't be the main concern! Just share what you love and see every dollar you might get as a bonus! ;)

You got a 5.02% upvote from @brupvoter courtesy of @jmehta!

Very cool contest guys, thanks for the opportunity, I had to jump in with my mind heart and soul on this one!

your content is also very very good!!! i just did it so i think that im probably not going to win anything haha ,wish me luck

This is a challenging contest but another way to reward more steemian, thanks to @blocktrades for the delegation to @anomadsoul.

Here is my entry to this contest :

Certainly its very creative contest, had resteemed it earlier, so that others could participate.

Great idea anomadsoul. I'm going to give it a go with my passion and hobby of scuba diving. I'll try to keep it under 2000 words ;-) see you on the other side.

  • N.B. Completely failed to keep it under 2000 words but 2059 ain't far off :-) here is my entry:

I enjoyed a lot making my post after receiving challenge to join this contest.

I put a lot of pictures to make you think my hobby is Photograpy, but it is actually to show my real hobby, have i already awaken your curiosity?

so without further ado, please find My hobbies

hope you enjoy!

@jodevasquez, @por500bolos ... Play on...

You got to this one before me...and I saw entries all over the contest tag today. Must be fate.

I am so excited to participate... I'm working on my post now... It's going to be long since I love talking about my hobbies. I hope everyone enjoys reading it once it's done.. ^^

although at the beginning I wanted to do the post English and Spanish, I do not have much knowledge in English, and using the translator was a horrible translation XD so I went back to edit and here is in Spanish, it was done with great care.

I wish luck to all the other contestants
