The October 2019 Redfish Rally at Steem Terminal finally came to an end. First off, I want to thank the people behind the project.


Thank you @brittandjosie, @thekittygirl, @medro-martin, and @xcountytravelers for coming up with a noble and brilliant contest to help and encourage the newbies (a.k.a redfish) of Steem. The SP delegation won will be a big help towards my further growth.

When I joined Steem Terminal at the start of September this year, I was a relatively small account who joined the Steem blockchain via my tribe, CTP. I used to post via our CTP Condenser at CTPtalk. Then as the days went by, I gathered enough courage to explore outside my tribe. I liken the experience to a little fish swimming out in the vast ocean. I felt the need to learn more about Steem. Thankfully, I met some good folks who pointed me in the right direction, so I joined the Steem Terminal on Discord.

I am grateful that I joined Steem Terminal, as I learned more and more each day. Plus, I had a go-to place in case I had any questions about Steem or Discord. I learned about the Redfish Rally and got really interested in it. That time, the September Redfish Rally was running already, so I eagerly signed up for October.

It was funny how excited I was, as I was even counting down the days before the October rally was due to start. You could say that enthusiasm and excitement helped me a lot to do my very best in achieving the first place in the contest. I am equally thankful to my fellow participants, esp. @janaveda and @elgranpoeta for being just as active in the competition. The three of us have officially graduated from the October 2019 Redfish Rally, as we have achieved 100+ SP by the time the contest ended.

There is no secret in achieving first place. However, I will gladly share a few pointers.

  • Join Steem Terminal Discord. (Or you won't qualify to join the contest)

  • Decide to have fun in the process. (This takes out the stress in being in a competition.)

  • Have a goal. (Commit to showing up daily. Post original, quality contents regularly.)

  • Interact with fellow participants and contest organizers. (There's a chatroom dedicated for this purpose on Steem Terminal.)

  • Seek balance and harmony. (Have a life outside of Steem. All Steem and no play makes Jill a dull girl.)

  • Be supportive of others. (The world needs a little more kindness going around. You can do your part.)

  • Bring enthusiasm wherever you go. (It's contagious.)

That is it for now. If you're a newbie (redfish) on Steem and feel that you need more help, register for the November Redfish Rally. We're excited to have you on the team.

Congratulations! You will see that in time things progress faster. It is a good moment to gain SP. And then help others be seen when you find them. It's rewarding, too.

Thank you for visiting! Yes, it is good to gain some SP, and I have also made a commitment to help small accounts like mine to keep growing here. I'm thankful for having found supportive communities. ^_^

Congratulations and I love your pictures! Happy Sunday. 💕

I just posted my 4th day, started later. I hope to catch up by writing more in the next days.

My latest https://steemit.vom/@wakeupkitty/nanowrimo-the-eldest-w75xjvnh

You find the other links underneath it. My favourite is the Giant, second parts. I still don't know how the story will go or which line to follow but I think I will try to make one story out of the once upon a time life tales and the novel I wrote in March.

Thanks for your respond. 💕
