Climbing on Steemit: Help Me Find the Needle in the Haystack

in climbing •  last year

Dear fellow Steemians and Climbers,

With my introductory post I started working on my project to promote climbing here on Steemit.

Up to now it’s working out perfect

I’m speechless about the support I received! Not only was my first post of the Climbing Chronicles resteemed by @ocd, but more importantly the introductory post of the @Climbing-Trail as well! This increased visibility beyond expectations.

I hoped for some feedback, but didn’t think that so many would reach out. Thank you for that! I can’t wait to hear your stories.

But this got me thinking

Are there even more climbers out there in the Steemit community? How could I get to know them? How could I find their posts?

At the moment my approach to find new posts on climbing is pretty naïve:

  1. I check my @Climbing-Trail feed, if some of you posted a new story.
  2. I check out the commenters under climbing posts, if they themselves wrote about climbing in the past.
  3. I search for the following tags in the “new”-category
    - climbing
    - rockclimbing
    - mountain
    - hiking
    - outdoor
    - camping
    - adventure

This is not only inefficient, but the probability that I miss out on an amazing story is really high!

What to do about it?

Ask you of course!

  1. Reach out to me in a comment below if you write about climbing! I would love to read your stories and follow you.
  2. Do you know anybody who writes about climbing, e.g. @therightduke informed me that @unipsycho is also writing about climbing.
  3. Did I miss out any important tags?
  4. Did you see a post on climbing? Just drop it in a comment below!

I appreciate your help in growing this community!

Tag: climbing

I would love to occupy a tag, just like @ocd introduced #ocd-resteem! The problem with that is, you waste one of your five precious tags to position your post in different areas to gain visibility.

The obvious solution is, use a tag that you would use anyway and which is not already overloaded!

Therefore, whenever you want to be sure that the @Climbing-Trail sees your post, give it the tag climbing!!!


The picture above shows me bouldering on a random block in the Frankenjura, Germany.
