Hive-Naija Weekend Engagement #62 - "SPENDER/SAVER"
“Every day is a good day. There is something to learn, care and celebrate." - Amit Ray
Hello everyone, my beautiful hive naija people, it's another beautiful weekend and we are so happy to have you here once again to make the engagement fun as always. And as announced the last time, our winner for every weekend engagement will be in charge of choosing the topic of discussion and also in charge of selecting the winners of his or her choice based on the engagement and response of participant. So for this weekend, our topic of discussion was chosen by our last two weeks winner @princessbusayo, so stay tuned, hehe.
As we all know, the Hive Naija Weekend Engagement is focused on promoting the togetherness of the Nigeria brethren together through engagement and it's also now concerned of the well being of each and everyone who is part of the engagement. This account was opened to make the engagement more personal and official you can find the INTRODUCTION POST to read more about the purpose and aim of this new account and also do well to follow the account so as to know when a post is made.
Last week, the topic was "A BETTER Hangout"
We had over 200+ comments last weekend, it was so nice seeing a lot of people who engaged and sharing their thoughts and ideas with us, I want to appreciate you all for the consistency, quality engagement and your efforts, let's keep them coming ya all. Special thanks to everyone who makes this hang out possible.
A long time ago, I thought, I shared and I asked "Why don't we Chat on hive every Weekend?"
And you all said... YES
"Well, we won't be the first as there are some weekend engagement trends already on Hive! But this would be THE NIGERIAN VERSION!"
I will drop a topic every Friday (Today's topic is below), share your thoughts on the matter, reply to someone else opinion, and interrogate the opinion if you like. Keep the discussion on. If you don't have anything to say about the topic. Just reply to someone else's comment.
Do all these in the comment section, as that is where it all goes down.
There are no further rules, please banter as you like, speak any Nigerian language (Igbo, Yoruba, pidgin, Efik), anything, as long as someone else can understand.
This week's engagement starts Immediately after you see this post and ends on Sunday at 11:59 pm.

This weekend, we will be discussing about our incomes/allowances, are you a spender or a saver? Well, that's just the top of the iceberg, what we really want to know are below...
- Do you think a student who collects allowances at home should also save? How many percent do you think it's okay for a beginner?
Do you save? Why do you think it's important for you to save?
Remember, the aim of the hangout is to bring Nigerians together so make sure you have this in mind when responding to the questions. And feel free to add even more to it if you have any. And also, we all should do well to share our responses on Leothreads also and share the links here on the hangout so others can go and engage on it. Also don't forget to use the #samhangout and #leothreads (it will be a determinant for choosing our winners).
In the spirit of implementing some suggestions, we have chosen our last week's winner @balikis95 to be the one to suggest a topic for next weekend's hangout and she will also be in charge of choosing the winner (any one that participates), all you have to do is suggest the topic during the week and then the winners. To our topic choosers, they will receive 5% of the hangout post they suggested the topics.
Okay Let's Gist!!!!
Be as simple and sincere with the discussion, hehehe.
Don't you think we are forgetting somebody?... Well, I'm sure we are...
Oh yes before I forget, there are also prizes for those that did well to invite someone new to the party and also you that has done well to invite someone you are also not left behind because you didn't leave anyone behind. But wait... Not so fast, this time you have to be more intentional about your invite, yes that's right...you know what you benefit when you engage so why not let others know about it. In fact I will advise you to look beyond the prize and look more to doing something different even for your Naija brethren by showing them the way here.
