Featuring the Build-It Tribe: Week 87 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest


"This week, we are featuring the Build-It tribe. This tribe is for anything you make or build yourself. They love tutorials and how-tos and actively seek new members for their tribe (this is how @viking-ventures came to be acquainted with them.)

Not only do they have their own platform on Steem (build-it.io), they also reach for new members on other social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. In this manner, they actively recruit new Steemians to help make the entire platform a better place to be.

They've also collaborated with the very popular Natural Medicine tribe, including working together with a current contest. Tags they support include: #diy, #build-it, #how-to, #doityourself and #build. This is a tribe with a mind for the future - not only for themselves, but for Steem in general.

The Build-It Tribe has also offered 500 BUILD (their token) as a prize pool for the 4 winners. Each Judges Choice winner will recieve 125 BUILD as a bonus on top of all other normal prizes.

As with all featured tribes this is only a suggestion and not a requirement to take part in this week's Curation Contest.

The Pay It Forward Curation Contest is all about increasing exposure for undervalued high quality posts and increase the level of engagement on steemit. You can take part by entering the contest or just helping visit the entries and their featured posts. Everyone chooses their level of involvement and we appreciate the efforts of everyone who helps promote quality content on Steemit.

Make sure to check back to this post often and scroll to the end to see a list of this week's curation entries! This list is updated on a regular basis to help make it easy for you to visit the entries and help support the great content that has been curated.

How to Enter the Pay It Forward Curation Contest?

To enter the Curation Contest you will find 2 high quality blog posts written by reputation level 65 or lower steemians and then write a curation style blog post like this entry by @viking-ventures from week 16 which won a Judges Choice Award. The idea is to highlight both posts and why you thought they were high quality.

To be clear the Level 65 max is only for the bloggers who are featured, anyone may submit a curation entry.


  • Curation Style Post that highlights your 2 featured blog posts.
  • Link to the high quality undervalued (less then $2 earnings at time of featuring) blog posts in your curation post. Keep in mind that many will follow this link and upvote so pick a post that isn't close to payout!
  • Include a link to this contest in your entry post
  • The 2 bloggers you curate need to be rank 65 or below
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how we track everything
  • Please Upvote and Comment on the posts you are featuring

👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content and that post spells out what that means. If you are new please read it.

No less then 200 words of original written content. A single photo is fine as long as there is 200 words with it. 200 words is about 12 lines of content.
** Art posts that show at least 3 steps of progression will not need to have 200 words of content, but still attempt to explain their art. Please use some common sense here.

This is my contribution this week! It's sure hard in some of these tribes to find a combination of under-rewarded, under REP 65 and decent posts!
