What's an ANTIPOST?

Steem is an open forum for content. But, what kind of content? What kinds of posts do you upvote? A 750 word article? A photograph? Video? Product reviews? A string of code? Everyone seems to have a slightly different answer. The rules are still being forged. New applications are being introduced to the Steem ecosystem all the time and each one offers up a new interpretation for what "valuable content" deserves to be.

Here's an AP example...


Create an ANTIPOST - With this challenge, we're asking you to go beyond the box you know and love. It’s time to break free, imagine a new kind of “post” that dives into the blockchain beyond. What would it look like? What IS a post?

  • Publish a "post" using the tag #antipost
  • Comment (below) with a link and tell us a bit about your concept and the thought process behind it. What makes your post different from other posts? Is it visible, invisible, a timeline, a game, an abstract digital art piece, something even more meta?

“Do not try and bend the post. That's impossible. Instead, only realize the truth... THERE IS NO POST. ”

Hi @sndbox

When I was a child, i was playing super mario frequently. I wanted to put our adult messages aside and remind us of our childhood messages.

Hello guys! this is my entry of the antipost challenge :D. In this antipost i wanted to show a loop with my screen on the pc, a photo of the screen, and then a photo of my cellphone while I was taking a picture of my screen when I was writting the antipost. I guess the idea is very great, and i wanted to show you over here!. I hope you Like it! :D

Leave it simple. Just upvote what you like. If you enjoy the content, want to support someone then do so :). I think this perceptions of needing to have "quality content" on Steem needs to shift. Some bloggers just micro blog, or run blogs like a Tumblr, others take greater time and effort in their videos.. and a lot of people here aren't writers but photographers and graphic artists... Hard to make a sincere 500+ blog post about that, unless you're milking every detail.

Support your favorite people and find new content to upvote to support up and coming steemers!

Here is my post.


What makes this antipost unique is that lives in Steemit block 29375112.

I celebrated this block number on soundcloud, youtube, twitter, instragram, inkscape, my iphone calculator, paper and ink, mspaint, pastebin, pilgrim.io, tinkercad, wolfram alpha, and a few other locations.

Greetings, everyone,
This is my entry. I had been thinking and announcing for a while that I'll add to my blog some art posts. Thus far, I had only posted my daughter's art. Since I have been experiencing some sort of artist's block, I figured this would be the perfect venue to show my inability to draw while you may have the impression that I am actually drawing, which I may be.


Hello team!

What's the point of creating content if literally no one can read it?

and yet, most people can read some parts of it. Does it have any value? Could anyone be bothered, and if so, would it be worth it to them?

This post is not a post.

Heya, I learnt the hard way that if you are not part of a community, your most amazing post is really worth nothing. So this is a tribute to all the communities out there for giving my posts some eyeballs :D


When is a post not a post? When it is an antipost! My entry for your contest @sndbox is my attempt to try create something that contradicts what a post is traditionally.Enjoy (or not)
