Curator Remark Anthology - Why I think Your Post Deserves a Big Upvote from Curie

in #curation5 years ago (edited)


Hello Steem,

Welcome to this week's edition of my curator remark anthology. If you aren't familiar with this already, I implore you refer to last week's edition for some backstory.

In a nutshell this is me, a @curie curator, trying to make a case for why I think the posts I propose for curation deserve the generous Curie vote -- that has incentivised the best creators on Steem for more than a year. You can read about Curie's curation project here.

Without further ado, let's advance to my picks for the week...

Ready for Love... With a Prosthesis

What if you just knew the person you recently met and have had thoughts of sharing a future together is using a Bionic arm or any kind of prosthesis? Have you thought of that before? Read the real-life experiences of Amaka who is poised to find love that would accept both her and her prosthesis, told by her prosthetist. Compelling read.

My Curator Comment

“This is both beautiful and touching. A partner with a prosthesis quite never crossed my mind, for any reason... until I read this one. Excites me when I see authors from professional backgrounds bringing on their universes to share on the Steem blockchain. The diversity is beautiful. This is another "returnee" author with some recent activity and quality content. I think this is the kind that raises discussions among the community, and I will be delighted to see this one pushed for more visibility."

7 Essential Oils To Combat Stress

This one ranks very high on a scale of useful posts on Steem. These oils do many things from reducing stress to increasing positive feelings, and a lot more. Here's one from @thisisjaimee you would want to bookmark.

My Curator Comment

“Engaged user: joined a couple months ago and did a couple posts then went MIA. Recently though the author has been persistent with an ample number of posts and bigly amount of comments. And the content is really good. Curie isn't the FDA but I understand the need to reference more reliable sources where big claims are made on "delicate" subjects like health and science; and that the author did with the hyperlinks to studies from more reliable sources. The post is well structured and excellently formatted. If I had a chance to submit just one post the whole day, I will boldly submit this on”

Forget the New Year’s Resolutions, Instead Try a 30 Day Challenge

@chadrickm makes a very compelling case for why 30-day challenges are more likely to push you towards big goals than new year resolutions. It's the perfect time of the year to read this. Maybe it'll stir a rethink. Brilliant piece.

My Curator Comment

“Quite how this author manages to have a 27 reputation is beyond me. This is one of the earliest accounts who is technically new to Steem and is blogging original, useful, information -- enough recently to be considered "persistent without success." Post is awesome and maybe a huge payout would convince author to stick around.”

Steemit Open Mic Week 66: Toxic & Crazy Mashup (cover)

It is an open secret that openmic entries are the curators' easiest things to curate. Thanks to @luzcypher and @pfunk for putting together that community of amazing folks who give a lot. And @abyni was not an exception with her brilliant mashup of Britney Spear's "Toxic."

My Curator Comment

“Wow. Good job! This would be me submitting an openmic entry for the first time in ages and I'm super proud of this one. She's beautiful, she sings lovely, and she's adorned in a beautiful sweater shirt. Definitely one of those would matter to curie, wouldn't it? ;-) Yeah, she's got a great voice, an active blog and just one curie vote in the past. I only hope this one stays below $3 long enough.”

Magic Pen: Short Story 2000 words

Here's one I really enjoyed to read. A good story lends itself to your imagination to expand its plot. Yeah, I thought of a million and one things I could do with @givonwayne's magic pen. Lovely read.

My Curator Comment

“The part Vacca walked into the hallway seemed to distract the story that was flowing very well up to that point. But then the role of that pen explained it afterwards. Interesting idea. Fairly dealt with. On the other hand, I must say the author leaves a lot to ask for when it comes to dialogues and controlling the pacing of the story plot. But I would give this one a chance for the ingenuity and effort, and also for reasons that this is a persistent author who hasn't met any success yet on Steem. One with a potential to contribute much more. I hope you feel that way too. On a lighter note, if I had that pen and its power, I would take @curie to the top of the witness log and get her a 5m SP delegation ;-)”

The Lab Chronicles - Day 1, The Piranhas are Coming

A day in the lab, @lesshorible takes us through his project "that may result in new filters to rid our water of estrogenic compounds."

My Curator Comment

“Not exactly sure why we may need to rid our waters of estrogenic compounds, but this is an author that is displaying an obvious knowledge as a first person scientist blogger. Sure we will want to keep this one on steem, and a curie vote we know aids retention. New blogger who has been around long and often enough to be deemed persistent, IMO. I see this post to be a piece of a larger jigsaw and it makes me want to see the rest. Now this is personal ;-) author seems to be a student and maybe could also use the few hundreds dollars a curie vote gives, even to buy 10 gold substrates. I hope you also think this is good.”

Lifestyle Approach to Our Health, and A Few Recommendations for the Workplace

Post is filled with useful health nuggets that apply to the workplace. @awesomeabasiono is a Human Resource Manager whose job requires he covers many grounds, and he displayed that in this post. Quality stuff!

My Curator Comment

"Post is filled with lots of useful health information and is particularly targeted to the workplace. For that I feel this deserves some exposure. Author has been persistent in posting and commenting, recently. References are used where bold claims are made, and the author added a disclaimer he isn't a medical expert -- just sharing what he knows. Good stuff. Excellent formating.”

Post got curied!

With that I wrap the curation remark anthology for the week. As always, @curie is looking out for the best quality contents on Steem. Support Curie by voting for her witness bid. Other ways you could support are following Curie trails on Streemian and on Steemauto.

Keep creating; keep having a great Steem year. Special mention and gratitude to @liberosist and @carlgnash for inspiring this series. You both contribute a lot to make Curie work. I admire you and the rest of the contributors.

Joining ideas in words to make an excellent piece is very challenging, of a personal opinion. Thus, I appreciate whatever piece I can make sense of...this too is inspiring and an advancement in learning. I believe this anthology by @misterakpan is essentially inciting to a better 'Steeming', and if course a 'great Steem year'.

You're sending the lovewaves far and wide. Love seeing you post and your ambition for helping others inspires me brotha :)

Infinite Lovewaves :)

That's a lot of waves ;-) Thanks, buddy.

Careful compilation, this is an act of patience, steadfastness, concern and real documentation. Nice one up there.

I didn't even know about this till now. This is good work.

Wow... It goes without saying that a lot, I mean, a whole lot must be invested in the making of a good post. Merely writing is not enough, never enough. I think there is a need to go a mile extra, to challenge one's self to do better and to demand nothing short of excellence.

I'm quite inspired by this @misterakpan

Glad you are, buddy :-)

This is so great! I love finding about about new things on Steemit.

Your story was awesome. Glad to have contributors like you on Steem :-)

Ive been on steem since July i cant believe i just stumbled upon this. Im still learning the platform. Thank you for sharing.

Whoot! I found you through @abyni and got my upvote. You have a great thing going, keep it up!

You are one of my favourite creators ;-)

Well, thank you! I've been enjoying the ins and outs of this platform, but meeting new people and getting to write every day has been the best part :)

Thank you for featuring me, I feel so honored, I'm so glad you liked it :)

Very painstakingly written, revealing enough to hijack an average writer to a genius, highly demanding, but the words in here if followed can mine a great writer, thanks @misterakpan for the lecture at #MummyJ last week. Thank you

Welcome, buddy. It was a pleasure. Good to have you here :-)

I was lucky enough to have been recently upvoted by Curie and didnt know this project existed until now. Im glad someone thought my content was good enough for that vote and i will try and create more quality material. I am also happy this sort of project exists, there is a lot of quality content out there that needs more viewing.

Proof of Brain means Proof of Brain. That's the beauty of the Steemit system. It essentially means you have to add something new and original. Even if you are citing other material, there should be something original and new brought to the community and that's what we see with the people upvoted above. I was grateful to be recognized by curie last week and I've seen curie be very active in the #steem-cartoon and #comics community. It's like pouring rocket fuel into the creative community.

You have the best words, my friend :-) Yeah, curie does a great work rewarding that proof of brain. We hope for more ensembles like @curie on the Steem blockchain. Kind regards.

Really appreciate your kind comment @misterakpan! I am thankful for your hard work, and thank you a lot for reading my conrtibutions! Cheers @lesshorrible!

Just keep creating :-)

Absolutely man! Cheers!

Hello, @misterakpan :) Many thanks, for the good you/@Curie do in rescuing fine work from obscurity!

With so many voices, on Steemit, all vying to be heard at the same time, you help to ensure that quality amterial is not overlooked (especially, if it's not backed by the almighty Steem power).

Wishing you continued success with Anthology!

Love this @misterakpan. Showing the process in action. I always keep a record of my comments to reviewers + was thinking of a post like this for the future, I see you've beaten me to it! 😉 Honestly though, I have too many pots on the boil for ideas to post on my blog lol

Keep on keepin it real buddy ✍ 👍

Yes. @curie is doing a really nice job of rewarding authors on this platform. Some authors might have not had enough steem dollar made from their works on the platform but it is a good thing that curie is looking out for them.

These are awesome choices! Diving in.
