POB Word of the Week : Persistence #003

avatar
(Edited)


Week number two is done and dusted and it looks like the atmosphere for this contest has really settled in the minds of some.

We've had some fresh takes on the word this week and the decision for the winners has been pretty tough. The people who have snapped up the top spots are as follows...



First Place: @pialejoana (200 POB)

Dessert "Sweet Atmosphere". Delicious, creative and layered! / Esp: Postre "Atmósfera Dulce". Delicioso, creativo y en capas.!

Different spin on the word, excellent write-up, quality engagement.

Second Place: @clicmaster (100 POB)

When the brain makes a bad move on us

Reflective read with a subtle link to the word, meaningful engagement with others.

Third Place: @nickyhavey (50 POB)

POB - Word of the Week Challenge - Atmosphere - Drum & Bass Edition

Musical dynamic which embodies the WOTW, thoughtful interactions.

Special mention:

I've delegated 250 POB to these members till the end of June 2021 for continued engagement in the contest and on POB in general.

@romirspc, I tagged you initially but realised that you use a different account for your curation. I've undelegated for now but when it comes back I'll apply it to your .tribe account.

No worries mate, I'm taking an indefinite period of time off once I've made it through the #hiveblopomo challenge so fully understand the challenges outside this wonderful place! Hang in there :)

Good plan, can you enlighten me what this #hiveblopomo challenge is?

HiveBloPoMo means Hive Blog Post Month (or something like that) and is a challenge set up by @traciyork to encourage people to post every day for the month of April. I think there are two per year and the next one is in November but you put the tag #hiveblopomo in each of your post.

It's more to generate content and activity on the network but it's also a good way to grow your account and meet other bloggers (if you can find the time to do all of that on top of 3D life haha)!

An honor to share the podium with @pialejoana and @nickyhavey and I will extend my thanks to @calumam and reiterate the commitment to the community thanks for the delegation, it is an incredible boost and that is exactly what I was talking about in an article. which I recently uploaded as #AskPOB Yesterday, also reading a bit, I found several articles that talked about the Friday commitment and I anticipate that I will do it 50% pob-fund. I believe that a joint effort, consistent and determined by perseverance, will only result in SUCCESS.

That last week rushed by pretty quick that's for sure. I'm actually considering giving the following week's word in advance because some people don't always have the time to do a post a week alongside other responsibilities. I'll probably start that next week and see how it goes.

You best make a post for this one since it's your suggestion!

My plan starting next Sunday is to give the following weeks word in advance also, that way if people don't find any inspiration for the present weeks word, they can maybe start thinking about and working on the next one.

It seems like a fair way to give an advantage to people who may not have enough time to post as often.

Perfect @thatcryptodave, glad you like it. The prizes definitely grab the attention but the real boost is the people who come and see your posts each week. Looking forward to your post fella.

I would like to suggest the word Vision and more now when great challenges can arise in the community and having a clear vision of where we are and where we want to go can help those who are more who will join!

Magic, that's great to hear, I was wondering all week if the inspiration for Atmosphere would hit but oh well. Looking forward to reading your entry this week mate.

Haha. Sorry for leaving you hanging. I just couldn't think of anything interesting. I want to keep writing for a long time and knowing myself, it's very important to never force myself to do a topic. I'm not good enough to make it interesting, when I don't even care myself.

The only idea I had, was to complain about the infighting in this tribe and the way it disturbs the atmosphere, but that's wouldn't be helpful. It seems more practical to drown it out with other more interesting and positive topics.

I know that notion. I'm even like that with comments.

Glad you didn't, I made a post about it in a different spin and although it's freed up space in my mind, I didn't get any resolution and it risked my own image. So not sure if it was worth it yet. Definitely better focusing on the positive if you're able to.

Looking forward to giving your post a read this week, I'm planning on giving it a week in advance for words in the future, probably starting next week. Might be easier for people with lots on their plate.

I am glad to have seen this post in time before the deadline expires. I find it exciting to develop around a word, to discover the power of that word. Exciting! I hope I can participate in this experiment, thank you!
I'm sorry I missed the beginning of POB, I'm thinking of a few words that could be used in the future, starting from my situation ... misunderstanding, inattention and forgetfulness.

Not to worry, even if you miss this week there will be a word for next week also. I'm actually giving the following week's word in advance for the first time as well, going to see how it helps.

Great suggestions @bluemoon, I especially like Inattention. Looking forward to seeing your entry to the contest.
