First Contest Has Arrived
This is the first ever contest for @dustsweeper and it is our way of giving back to the community. As you remember from our initial post, we not only want to provide this great service to you, but we also want to help the community if we do better than expected.
Initial Success - Off The Charts!
We are thrilled to have so many people sign up so fast. It has been a whirlwind 2 weeks and every day seems like something new. We now have over 200 accounts, and more coming in every day for the service. In addition to the accounts and all the kind words, there have been many many posts about the subject on your blogs, we frankly have lost count. The general high level of enthusiasm shown is nothing short of amazing, and we have been able to get @dustsweeper marginally profitable within the first 2 weeks! That is really terrific if you think about it.
We have directly been blessed by 2 factors that have helped make the project get solid so fast. First, we got great delegations from community supporters. Here is a list of the generous Steemians that have delegated SP freely to help this project get going:
Thank you all so much for the jump start and for helping so quickly with your selfless actions.
Second, we have been blessed with lots of upvotes on the post we did... That added a serious boost of sbds which enabled us to increase our SP leases and really ramp up in a hurry! So thank you to everyone who upvoted and resteemed @dustsweeper's posts!
Giving Back - In A Small Way
What we want to do is start to give back in a small way. We want to show you a glimpse into the future and the things you might expect us to do to help others grow. We particularly want to focus on newbies and minnows, as that is the group on Steemit that needs the most help!
We will strive to come up with new and creative ways to get the word out about @dustsweeper, and also find ways to reward and help newbies and minnows in the process. We received a very generous donation from Steem Witness @jackmiller to help a few minnows and newbies to find out about us and to help them get started with their first deposit. He donated 5 SBDs, and is looking for us to give it to those less fortunate to "try the system out". This will enable us to randomly pick 20 winners to receive an account with $0.50 in upvote value to get started!
