5 more sketches and how I changed my mind about what an artist should do

@paolobeneforti: Today's drawing session has been quite satisfying - and I don't say it often! I did a lot of drawings and little paintings in the last months. Somehow it happened also thanks to Steem.

Peering into Space : Finding Inspiration in Satellite Imagery (I)

@erb: I have always been fascinated by satellite images of our solar system. The textures and terrains of the planets, moons and asteroids around us (and beneath us) have often found their way into my drawings, and flipping through the images often sparks new ideas for my collection of short stories. In each post in this series, I will present one of my original drawings alongside a resource for incredible satellite images.

Retro Style Poster for @familydoctor & @gochuchamchi // (근)로메 브라더스 3화 축전----!!!(성)

@carrotcake: I made a retro-style movie poster for Law-Me Brothers created by @familydoctor and @gochuchamchi. Law-Me Brothers is a visual narrative that they re-created based on true stories and shared on Steemit. The design of the poster is inspired by movie posters from the 80's which were often hand-painted by graphic artists.

A tribute to Friendship - Or how Steemit and SteemFest bring people together!

@meanmommy33: This post is about the first @steemsugars meet up in London that I finally managed to join as the leader of the group! It was simply amazing, interactive live with my favorite girls and meeting some I didn't know in person! It is also a tribute to friendship and how it grows through the platform, having started at @steemfest! Steem On!

Why is teaching the hardest job ever?

@teachblogger: As a teacher, I can say that teaching is the hardest job ever. We have to deal with students as well as parents. Teaching is not getting enough attention in society, so we have to think about many things at the same time. If want to know how hard teaching is, you are welcome to read my post!

When it rains, it pollutes

@mintvilla: Climate change has impacted different regions in different ways but where I live, in East Coast, we definitely have been experiencing more precipitation each year. The problem with rainfall is not only about the weathering event itself but non-point source pollution exacerbates with more rainfall.

Meetup Bereh KSI Chapter East Aceh: Beatbox, Grilled fish, and Community Strengthening

@ayijufridar: Meetup Bereh KSI East Aceh, increasingly strengthens the cohesion of Steemit Indonesia Community. However, this does not mean boring meetup this time. In fact, it can be said a lot of constructive criticism in it, as one participant expressed about the licking behavior of some Steemians, paid upvote, and plagiarism of many Steemians from Indonesia. The Steemians are also advised to develop creativity to achieve success in Steemit is sometimes easy, but not infrequently should be bloody. No pain, no gain.

My Steem Journey #1 – How I got here

@GuyFawkes4-20: I am not a whale, not even a dolphin, nor do I have the most significant accomplishments on this platform but I do think that what I built so far here is solid and that the projects I work on have and will have an enormous impact on the community. I am here for a while, and I was able to meet many amazing people with different views, and I got a good understanding of how things work, and hopefully, the advice shared in this series will give you a hand.

What Could a Steem University Look Like?

@jeffbernst: I saw an interesting post on DTube last month called “What Would A Steemit School Look Like?” I want to talk about what a Steem university could look like and how I think it could be completely different from our current system. I'm actually working on a site similar to the one I describe in this video — I'd love your feedback!

[오늘의 English 단어] #50. 옷장 속의 아이언 맨? - Skeleton in the Closet

@bree1042: From now on I'd like to start a new series of English words: Body Worlds. Don't worry. I won't show you any mummified human body here. In this series, I'll teach English words and expressions that have body parts in it, such as skeleton in the closet, neck and neck, from hand to mouth, etc. Today I'd like to teach "skeleton in the closet". What does that mean? It means "embarrassing fact that you wish to keep secret."

Blockchain Bachelor’s Thesis – Information Overflow and How to Deal with It

@fingersik: This year (actually in about 4 months) I’ll have to present my Bachelor’s thesis. What does that mean for me? It means that I will have to spend hundreds of hours doing research, summing the knowledge up and finally writing down the outcome. What will I receive for it? The biggest advantage is that I’ll have deeper understanding of how to deal with information overflow, thus making myself a more efficient human being. What about Blockchanizing the Bachelor’s thesis through Steemit though?

Wow, to think that you guys curated all these posts is plain amazing. Other communities don't get to curate this much. This is really cool.

But how do I get featured in this? How do I stand a chance to be curated?
