Read Me ASAP.png

Don’t look later, look at this right now, ASAP!

You don’t want to miss out on engaging with some awesome Steemians and encouraging them before their post pays out! We all love it when someone takes the time to not only stop by our blog and read our posts but actually engage. As a fellow plankton, I know and love this feeling. It’s super disheartening when you put hours of effort in, for a post to get lost at sea never to be found again.


I know there are some amazing curation teams out there and we are not by any means trying to step on any toes but with over 250,000 posts a day I am sure there is room for an additional team. With this in mind, I would like to introduce to “READ ME A.S.A.P” the mini curation project, designed to showcase undervalued Steemit and other Steem platform users.

What makes this different?

We are going to use @steem-plus to profit share* directly with our curation selections. For this reason the selections will be limited to three each “READ ME A.S.A.P” issue, each writer receiving 10% of the SteemPower, for transparency the author of this curation post will receive 50%, 15% stays with the @asapers, the remaining 5% automatically go’s to @steem-plus to further develop that tool for our use.

*We are testing this so bear with us for the first few weeks while we iron out any kinks.
To find out more about @steem-plus click HERE, it’s so much more than profit sharing including the added bonus of a voting slider for those of us on Steemit and under 500SP

READ ME A.S.A.P is the first project brought to you by the @aspers.

Who are the @asapers?

We are a newly created team of six that have been handpicked by @hitmeasap for his inaugural delegation “experiment”. A small yet substantial delegation in the eyes of the six chosen. I can’t say why he choose us, other than he has confidence in our efforts to date and faith in our ability to continue growing into the future. As for why he is doing it…

An attempt to "pay it forward" and in a way of saying thank you and show my appreciation towards @fulltimegeek and his awesomeness. @hitmeasap Source
As for the six, we are a varied bunch, just the way I like it. We consist of in no particular order, myself @insideoutlet, my hubby @shai-hulud, @wdougwatson, @braxton101, @frankabelle and @yogajill. We may put up an introduce yourself post in the near future but feel free to check out these awesome steemians at any time by simply CLICKINGon their name.

What else does the @asapers have to offer you?

Great question! What else do you want? Below are some ideas we have in the works but would love some additional ideas, feel free to comment away!



We are looking for CONTEST IDEAS, what do you like to participate in, what do you think there isn’t enough of? What type of prizes would you like to see?

Additional curation

An #introduceyourself curation post up and happening with any luck in conjunction with @gogogadgetupvote's “Daily "Introduceyourself Post" Bounty” in the near future
Just putting it out there @gogogadget

Post promotion

We will also be setting up a #post-promotion channel on Discord for newbies to share quality posts in Discord, there will be rules and we hope to emulate the fantastic culture @thesteemengine has created around fellow post support rather than dump and run. If you haven’t joined them yet, I suggest you check them out, they are a great team!

Now for the promised goods:

Again these were all chosen from our awesome followers who blindly hit the follow button with the knowledge that we would be worth it!

Alphabet Adventures Episode 7 .. Absolve (FCK Cancer) by @shai-hulud

@shai-hulud is one of our own @asapers, yet still highly undervalued. I would like to introduce you to one of his fantastic series and the main reason for him classing himself as a “Word Nerd”.

This week he introduces us to the word ”Absolve” and as an added bonus all the SBD raised from all his posts with (FCK Cancer) in the title will be donated to find a cure for leukaemia as part of ‘The World’s Greatest Shave’. He has been growing his hair for 5 years now & I can honestly tell you we all a bit scared of what he's going to look like once it’s shaved.

There is still 6 days until PAYOUT. It’s for a great cause and he is going to need to buy a beanie for his shaved head, so how about a 100% upvote?

Uses for empty 5 liter bottles- channeling a broken gutter. by @simplylizelle

This idea is a fantastic one, way to think outside the box and come up with your own solution.

There is still 5 days until PAYOUT. Got some spare VP to help a DIY sharer out, he needs white paint to finish the job?

Why do we buy new clothes for Chinese New Year? by @tadstrange

Shows you how much I know about Chinese traditions, thanks for enlightening me. This one may be a good one for me to start celebrating as who doesn’t love some new clothes.

The no red at funeral is interesting and also a new fact. You learn something new everyday!

*There is still 6 days until PAYOUT. Help a fellow steemian out, an upvote can make a minnows day.
