My entry to the "Pay It Forward Curation Contest - Week 42"


last yearBusy5 min read

This is my entry for the Pay It Forward Curation Contest - Week 42 hosted by @pifc.

The rules of this challenge are very simple: Feature 2 High Quality Original Content Blog Posts from Steemians with a reputation score of 55 or under.

This week I bring you two artists who have made a comeback to the Steem Network after taking a 5 month break: @miewdrawings and @elfmyselfandi.

Here's the preview of their latest artworks:


#1 - @miewdrawings (34)

@miewdrawings joined the Steem Network on August 14, 2018. She's a 19 year old Lithuanian student and published a few times, back in August... and then took a break.

@miewdrawings returned 2 days ago with her #introduceyourself post, where she explains how she found this Network and what she's been doing lately.

She concludes the post by sharing a few of her drawings.


This is just one of her drawings, please go to her post to see the others.

I think @miewdrawings has more than enough talent and creativity to be successful here, but it seems that no one bothered to help her...

  • My advice, @miewdrawings, is that you accompany your drawings with a few text. You can include some random thoughts, explain the idea behind your artwork or simply post a few progress shots. It's up to you, but you should really add more than just a single image to a post.

  • Also, there's no need to post 5 or 6 times a day. You will do better if you post 5 or 6 times a week... and if you take a few more time to create each post.

I hope these tips will help you and I hope to see some more cool works from you, in the future.

#2 - @elfmyselfandi (50)

Elin Laaksonen Friesen is a Swedish artist, currently living in Alberta, Canada.


She joined the Steem Network almost a year ago, on February 7, 2018 and uses this blog to showcase her versatile skills, ranging from Drawing and Writing Comics, Making Shoes and Gardening. And now she's raising a baby, too.

What a great set of skills, don't you think?

In the post I've selected from @elfmyselfandi she shares a 2 page cartoon but I will only post the first image here - you can check the ending at her blog.


@elfmyselfandi accompanies her comic drawings with a few personal thoughts that led to the creation of the cartoon.

# Final Thoughts

At the time I'm writing this, both posts have little rewards, with $0.31 and $0.03.

In my opinion @miewdrawings and @elfmyselfandi have not been very consistent with their blogging and I think they need a little more exposure to gain some motivation to go on.

The only suggestion I have for both @miewdrawings and @elfmyselfandi is to add just a little more text when you post your artworks. Doing that will bring you a lot more fans. 😄

Also, please check out NTopaz and consider using it to post your artworks. (You can use your STEEM keys to login at that site; Any post from NTopaz will be automatically visible in SteemIt.)

Please give them some love and support. Any help is appreciated.
