With 2019 about to come to a close, the @SteemitWorldmap team, @martibis, @choogirl, @livinguktaiwan, @lizanomadsoul and @itchyfeetdonica, would like to say a big thank to everyone for your support over the year.

As one of the earliest curation guilds on Steemit, we couldn't have lasted this long without you guys pinning your posts to the SteemitWorldMap, and supporting us in curating these awesome posts every day. We've enjoyed reading all the travel posts on the Map over the year and thought it would be great to kick off 2020 with a contest that allows everyone to relive your best Steemitworldmap memories.

My 4 beloved postS from 2019 in a new mix.

I had so much fun reviewing all the posts


What a wonderful contest from one of my favorite Steem apps @steemitworldmap! Which has inspired / motivated me to write my first post in almost 3 months.

Not on our Steem blockchain as much as I used to be, I am a little late seeing this. Sure glad the deadline was set the way it was. And appreciative of the thought behind this contest to get 2020 off to a great start! 😊


Not a gamer and nor much interested in anything related to it, your application represents what is possible on our Steem blockchain, with its awesome supplementary features. It is to me a very successful example of what "can be" with some creativity and hard work.

Here's one Steemian wishing you "new heights" in your achievements for the New Year! 👍

Thank you @steemitworldmap for your good intention in helping steemians through this contest. Steem on!

This will be fun. It has been so great posting to #Steemitworldmap throughout 2019. Time to find my favorites!

That might be a bit of a challenge for you!!! Can't wait to see what your favourites are.

Hey @steemitworldmap I tried using the tag #steemitworldmap2019travel on my post but it wasnt aloud as it says maximum 24 characters...

Here is my post:

Can you accept this as my entry or let me know how I can include the tag?

Allgood updated it through Busy :)

Great, thanks for your entry

It was exceptionally hard to choose for me I have so many great locations and posts on this map but after long thinking here is the outcome :D


Yes, we did try to make it that tad difficult as people have been pinning so many great posts on the map

Thanks for your entry

This is a very great contest! Let me start pinning them & post. Thanks for this offer.

But I cant use the tag you ask -- it just doesnt let me to put the tag "longer than 24 symbols"!

I hope its legit?..

I see you've sorted it out now!

You can add it in busy or steempeak, it should work in both, that would make sure we don't forget to pick up your entry. thanks for entering

Sorry, out of BEER, please retry later...

Let's see if the refill of !BEER worked

The BEER was so strongly calling for an own 2019 post....

Great! Look forward to it!

Phew! Just squeezed my entry in now! Let me know if I need to do anything else - think I followed the instructions - I used steempeak to write the post and copied the steemitworldmap link in but will pop it here in case!
