Can I Improve on STEEM using Steemitboard Stats?

STEEMITBOARD stats review fitinfun.jpg

I have been thinking of tracking some steem stats to try to do better here and now I am inspired by three other steemers:

First is @arcange with his steemitboard work. I look at this on occasion to see how I am doing, but have not really taken a hard look at my numbers before in the two years I have been blogging here.

I recently noticed a post by my buddy @scrooger where he was thinking of challenging himself to get more steemitboard badges, but not sure of the right path. Thank you for thinking out loud to help me @scrooger :)

https://steemit.com/qurator/@scrooger/are-there-any-hardcore-steemitboard-fans-out-there

Then I saw a post by @akomoajong, where he has decided to track his steemitboard stats monthly for a while and showed me how to do it. I think I might follow his lead with the monthly idea - at least for a few months.

https://steemit.com/statistics/@akomoajong/keeping-up-with-my-rankings-on-steem-ce7be52a41fd2

So I plunged in today.

I have three accounts:

@fitinfun is my main blog since June 2017.

My usual topics are freewriting, photo posts, travel and minnow tips. Every single thing I do is with the goal of helping others to beat obesity naturally like I did eight years ago, so that theme is in most posts somewhere.

@bxlphabet is my son's blog since August 2017.

I help him with some of what he does. We are a team on two continents. He posts about steemmonsters, California, music, actifit and just started to freewrite.

@fitinfunfood is my food blog since Jan 1 2019.

Yes, it's all about food and I am very happy with the progress on this blog after only three months. I think it will only get better over time as I find more places to enter food posts and get my act together to do them more efficiently.

NOTES:

  • All three blogs post to contests, challenges and sponsored tags. We do not post random thoughts to nowhere.

  • All blogs lease delegated sp and fitinfun has one gifted delegation.

  • All blogs self-vote and circle jerk each other. I am HIGHLY considering stopping the self-voting part of that equation.

  • All posts go through dapps that pay with upvotes and rotate through them:
    esteem
    share2steem
    busy
    ulogs

@fitinfunfood only:

  • tasteem

@bxlphabet only

  • partiko
  • actifit
  • dtube (rarely)

The goal is 21 posts a week for each blog. The reality is 15-18 usually. Here are the posts in the pipeline right now:

  • fitinfun 16
  • bxlphabet 18
  • fitinfunfood 13

We have rankings?

Did you know there is more to the steemitboard than the badges? I did not until I saw the post above by @akomoajong. If you click the three lines at the top right of those screens you get stats! You can see I have the dropdown open in the fitinfun screen above, and here is what it looks like when you go there.

18j4ynnh4y.png

This view shows that I am number 305 out of all steemers on resteems. I am sure this is because of all of my minnow tips posts that get resteemed by redfish constantly. Now that I have ginabot I see the resteems happen in real time.

My most current minnow tips post gets resteemed often. When I publish a new mega-post every few months, I am pretty sure that resteems like crazy before payout as I promote it.

Analysis

I pulled all of those ranking numbers into a spreadsheet for the three blogs:

x9ds4e87r1.png

Hmm...

Here the the rankings are for all three blogs by best to worst rank:

@fitinfun is the most established and I post and comment like a fiend, so I should be doing the best here. The reason my sp is so low is because I power down weekly to live off the money.

I know! Everybody faints now. You want to hold your steem until it gets to 100, or 777, but I want to pay my rent and eat. If I got more (bigger) upvotes maybe... Sigh...

b7oxps5g9i.png

I am in the top 1000 in about half of the categories. WooHoo!

@bxlphabet did not really start his blog until Jan 2017.

He only set up the account and voted with an autovoter for the first six months. Before the dapps started paying, he was only posting once or twice a day. He has been a lot more active and improving fast since January 2019. His account also powers down weekly.

kpqjrffmes.png

@fitinfunfood is the baby and so should be the "worst" performer.

This account will start powering down at 200 sp. Still, it will grow faster than bxlphabet and maybe fitinfun too, due to tasteem reviews which are awesome for rewards, and will come 2-3 times a week as long as I can manage to eat out that often. I'm also winning a lot of food contests with this blog.

Way ahead?

Where am I going with this? I am not sure but here are a few numbers off of the first page that do not come through on the rankings:

BlogAve # votesAve Post $
fitinfun643.491
bxlphabet461.713
fitinfunfood392.403

The reason that fitinfunfood is doing better on Ave Post Payout is that there was less suffering in the first weeks (months) due to my awesome skill set of "How to Get Votes" developed through working with the other two blogs.

Both fitinfun and bxlphabet had months of posts with very little payout. The food blog has done much better right from the get-go.

In Conclusion:

I will think about how to improve and check this again next month. Off hand, I think I should go around begging people to put us on their autovoter, but that might not be a good plan. I know people who do that begging trick successfully, but so far I have not tried it except in a couple of desperation posts when rent was due and not available. That plea for autovoting is in my footer these days, and I have gotten some new autovotes since doing this.

You are tagged:

I'm tagging some people who care about and work with minnows/redfish to get advice and input if you have any. And maybe this would have value to recommend this self-check to any of the people you work with.

@abh12345
@simplymike
@paulag
@thedarkhorse
@steevc
@crypto.piotr
@theycallmedan
@mariannewest
@khimgoh

Please let me know if you do not want to be tagged when I update this post in a month or so.

Do you think this stat tracking is a good idea, or is it a waste of time? Any thoughts on good ways I can improve on any of the blogs? Anything else?

Thank you so much for reading and may we all continue to thrive.

Statistics say that only 5% of people with health resolutions for the New Year will still be on track after Super Bowl Sunday. Is your fitness equipment still out handy, and are you still on a "diet?" Soon we will be in Bathing Suit Season. Are you ready?

I lost "Half My Size" eight years ago by using natural methods. I started on December 5th and did not give up. You can do it too!

This is Sharon @fitinfun. I am posting:

  • Healthy Food Ideas on @fitinfunfood

  • Motivation Minnow Tips and Everything Else on @fitinfun

  • @bxlphabet is posting Southern California, steemmonsters and dtube videos.

Please follow along or contact me directly if you would like some individual help with weight loss and health. Anyone can do this if I did.

I have already voted for them. I am not sure what to work on in these stats, if anything, and then how?

Thanks for tagging me in this post. I will definitely use your tips to check on my accounts... but not today, since I really have an off-day today

You're welcome. I hope you are feeling better these days, @simplymike :)

It was a hell of a weekend, but once again, people here on SteemIt have made the sun shine again :0)

Thanks for the shoutout. Great to see your rankings as well and I most confess that I am amazed with the stats from the fitinfun account.

In general, the stats are pretty amazing and it only goes to show the hardwork and dedication that you put in on this platform.

Kudos and keep it going 💪👍

I will! I really appreciate you for the idea and all of your good examples as well, @akomoajong. We just have to keep going :)

Very useful introduction!
seems there is no the person @stevevc

·

Thank you very much! I changed that tag :)

What a walk-through. Very detailed information about @steemitboard. I do not give it attention until now. Thanks for sharing

Ok, so that's a lot of stats to swallow
Honestly 21 posts for each account, that's just too crazy
I struggle even with just one post a day
I may be enjoying the process of creating a post too much hahahah
How do you do this? How much time do you spend on one post?

·

It does seem like a lot, @kaerpediem, but most are pretty quick. For the two accounts I do:

  • share2steem 10-14 a week - these take 5 minutes each once I have someone's post I want to promote on twitter. I try to do these as soon as 24 hours is up from the last one, and keep an eye out for good posts, so I do not have to hunt for them.
  • photo and food contests and challenges - 10-14 a week - these take almost no time for one photo or maybe 1-2 hours for a lot of photos.
  • @tasteem restaurant reviews 4-5 a week and rising - these take maybe two hours not including the eating part lol.
  • freewrite 6-7 times a week - 30 minutes including the poster I make
  • ulogs a few times a month when I have something to say - varies in time
  • dApp reviews take longer a few times a month
  • minnow tips posts can be quick or long a few times a month

I'm always looking at the time so I never post before 2 hours is up from the last post on each blog, and no more than 4 posts each day on one blog. I'm also using:

  • busy
  • esteem
  • share2steem
  • ulogs
  • tasteem
    so each of those has to wait 24 hours from the last post.

Whew! Now I'm tired lol.

Hahaha
I think you do a fantastic job
My time management sucks and a WIP
Will try out a couple of your methods methodically 😉

Well, I do not know what to say about this post, Mom. Too many numbers!!! I will just keep trying to post 2-4 times each day and use the dApps like you have told me. I like the votes I get from them. Maybe my monsters posts will start doing better too.

I could not ever get so interested in all the numbers like this, but I will keep trying to do better here.

You are so organized about all of this!! Well done. My brain doesn't work that way. But I really need to make a better plan. 🤔

·

That's what I am going for - a plan!

I constantly find myself looking at my stats around the ecosystem as I feel it is a great way to measure our progress in growing our accounts. It is great to see and example on how Steem is providing a source of income as that should ultimately be the goal for many around the world.

That's what I say! I am not alone in this by any means. But people who cash out like me fly under the radar since we grow slowly :)

Hmm steemitboard took me deeply when I just joined to Steemit. And I tried to do all to recieve the next one badge but now I'm look on it not so often as before. I think my priorities changed a little bit in this area.
But to track your results with it monthly not bad idea coz it allows you to make your progress more visible for other people and maybe even attract new followers.

Maybe - people might want to follow the progress. Time will tell :)

@fitinfun, In my opinion you've effectively explained the stats and your activity here and definitely it's really appreciable and i want to say that it was analytical session too. Keep up and good wishes from my side.

·

Thank you! Maybe you can try this too :)

·

Welcome and have a joyful time ahead.

Would be interesting how many accounts a steemit user has in average.

Good job monitoring this monitoring, is a great extrategia that I had not seen before. I'm starting now I want to see where I'll go by posting one a day.

·

Try freewrite by @mariannewest, @adrif. It's really a great way to post each day when new. You will meet good people and have a new prompt to work with. You only have to write for 5 minutes, so anyone can do it :)
