5 SBD Giveaway + My First Month On Steemit

in introduceyourself •  5 years ago 

I posted my first ever post on Steemit a little over a month ago. Since then, I've met some incredible people on the platform. I love having a place to share my photos and add context through writing all in one place. Getting paid is a great benefit but definitely not the main reason I'll continue to post here. The community behind Steemit is so genuine and welcoming and I could see myself contributing even if the monetary reward was removed. Steemit allows me to share my photos, but more importantly it allows me to add my own writing to help add context and engage readers with my feelings during the time I was taking the picture.

If you are interested in photography in any way, I highly recommend the community created by @photofeed . Their curators are incredibly talented and love to promote passionate photographers.

I also recommend the photo contests run by @juliank . The contests are a great way to earn some extra SBD and connect with other like minded individuals.

Last but not least, check out @curie . They helped promote my Guide To Shooting The Northern Lights, a guide I put an immense amount of time and effort into. I want to thank them so much for helping share my work.


As a thank you for all of the amazing support I have received, I want to give back. I will be giving away 5 SBD to one person!

Here's how to enter:

  1. Resteem this post
  2. Add a comment with a number between 1 and 200

I will use a random number generator to come up with the winning number.

In the interest of transparency:

  • Only one person will win.
  • Following and upvoting does NOT increase your chances of winning, but it's highly appreciated :)
  • In the event that someone does not choose the exact number, the closest guess will be chosen.
  • In the event of a tie, (two people choosing the winning number) the person who commented first will win.
  • I will send the winner 5 SBD in one week.

I'd also like to take this time to reintroduce myself to newcomers who may not have seen my original post. My name is Chase Burnett. I am a 22 year old student and photographer currently living in Alaska. I fell in love with photography in 2016 as a way to document my adventures. Since then, photography has become something I couldn't see myself not pursuing. My main goal with my photos is to inspire others to explore new places and appreciate the outdoors.

Again, thank you to everyone who has supported me so this far and I can't wait to see what happens in the future! Good luck to everyone in the giveaway! :)

Welcome to Steemit!

My # is 73

People always want to win. I´ll try Number: 25

Brother you are so right about the community here. I've only been here a little over a week, I think this is the nicest community of people I've ever met. I've never been in social media ever before in my life because of what it stands for. However when I stumbled onto this community I immediately fell in love. I also enjoy photography however I live a pretty simple life and because of decisions I've made to ultimately put my family first I can't afford some of the nicer things in life that I would like. But in the long run my children will be well off and we are able to make a difference in our community that we live in. One day I will get there. Until then I do the best that I can do with what I have and I share it with these people here that I love. I think that people that give back to the community or one of our most cherished aspects. My biggest hopes here now are that someday I will be on a level where I will be able to finally give back to this community like I watch others do. People like you inspire me. I wish you nothing but the best and continued happiness and success. All of my love to you and all of yours. And may our creator bless you and yours.
