I have a bit of a dilemma in terms of tags to use sometimes. I travel a lot and write a lot of travel articles. Like everyone else I would like to catch the eye of a @curie curator and receive even the 'minor' @curie love.
However, you really need something exceptional for this to happen and also your post needs to have a small amount of votes and rewards. How much this is exactly I think depends on the value of STEEM’; it may be a variable figure.
This brings me to the title subject. Hypothetically I have written a masterpiece, this content surpasses Shakespeare in terms of raw quality but is travel related and I want to share it with the Steemit community and its that good, @curie can’t fail to miss it.
I go ahead and use those tags and many hours later it does indeed get the eye of these curation groups, and perhaps some other smaller ones. I am feeling good as my rewards are now around $4 and contain lots of votes due to multiple curation feeds.
But where is @curie? This is truly world beating content, and surely must have been have been noticed by the premiere, 'cream de la cream' of curation groups?
At this point, I’m thinking @curie has dismissed the masterpiece on the basis that it has broken the reward threshold and is now not admissible. They appear to be specific about this and it’s their rules, so what can we do about it?
Getting back to reality, I have had a ‘major’ @curie twice, and neither article has been travel related. If you have something you deem great and you want @curie love, I guess @travelfeed and @steemitworldmap will need to be forsaken.
My last @curie was upvoted by @esteemapp and @good-karma, but still got the @curie treatment. Maybe it was just under the threshold and I got lucky, or maybe I’m completely off with my assumptions above and what I’m writing is a load of old bollocks!
It’s a fine line you tread if you are a serial masterpiece creator and want that big love; maybe you just can't have your cake and eat it too?
Can someone from @curie let us all know some answers to my dilemma?
PS: This article is NOT travel related, Shakespeare material, a masterpiece, and I wont be be tagging @travelFeed or @steemitworldmap, but I will be tagging @esteem, even though @steevc tells me it’s not necessary for them to notice :)
If you found this article so invigorating that you are now a positively googly-eyed, drooling lunatic with dripping saliva or even if you liked it just a bit, then please upvote, comment, resteem, engage me or all of these things.
