How to get the attention of steemcurator01? By @steemtopus
According to my research, certain users receive more votes from steemcurator01 than others. These users include those in certain communities i. e steemcurator01 visit some communities more than others or maybe not. It is evident that these communities work hard and adhere strictly to the laid down rules by the steemit team or work on certain projects that contribute immensely to the growth of the general community and steemit. I know users who get steemcurator01 on all of their posts but their thorough work and immense contributions cannot be overlooked.
Who gets the most support?
Community admins and moderators. This is understandable as it is not very easy to manage these kinds of settings where there are a lot of individuals. They work hard to ensure their community members are supported by nominating qualified posts daily for booming and other kinds of support. They also work hard to ensure that community members follow the guideline as well as scrutinise every post in the community for plagiarism and other kinds of abuse. They hereby help to protect the integrity of steemit and relieve the steemit team from their heavy workload.
Developers and contributors. The significance of their works cannot be emphasized. Some of these users create Dapps and witnesses on the steem blockchain. The benefits of their contribution cannot be measured. There are numerous dapps and witnesses on steemit and you can check them here on steemscan.com. The popular and great steemit tool, steemworld was also created by @steemchiller. Users cannot do without visiting these tools at least once a day to have a check on their activities and the activities of other users. There are other great tools created on this platform.
Steemit, centralized or decentralized?
According to the general understanding, a decentralized blockchain does not need any authority to function. Earning is determined by what each user decides to do with their tokens. The steem power is used to vote for users whose posts you like. Therefore, there is no imposition or mandation on any user to vote your content or comment as they are allowed to do anything with anything they own. The primary work of the steemit team is to ensure this decentralization as well as ensure the security of this blockchain and the protection of its user. They do not have authority over how much you earn, the number of steem tokens you accumulate and what you do with your steem power. Providing support for users is not compulsory especially when you have been allowed to join the blockchain for free. However, they offer this support to thousands of users, recruiting some unknown individuals to do this in the process. To ensure the integrity of their support, they put down rules and guidelines on what users need to do to receive these kinds of support. Individuals who break the rules and call for total decentralization are hereby allowed to stay but exempted from the centralized-like support.
Disconnected rat: A case study.
Why him? Maybe because his case is beautiful and is worth studying. @disconnect has hundreds of users visit his blog daily. We all know why. His daily contests alerts are being followed by many and he has amassed over 1000 followers in the past few months. He starts posting about contest alerts less than a year ago. He does this by ratting through different communities and looking for all the contests posted there. That is a lot of work, right? He does this by posting this regularly on his blog without skipping a day. “Remember why you started and keep going. Say cheese!” is what is written on his profile and it’s quite evident that he’s inspired to do so. Although he was being watched by many, he didn’t get any tangible support for three months after starting. When did he get his breakthrough?
He finally got the reward for his hard work, when he celebrated 100 days since he started and gave out 100 steem as a contest prize to his follower. I remember asking him why he continued to post on his blog despite not getting any support. I told him, he could have picked a community and his hard work will be discovered. The reply he gave to me that day confirmed to me that he is set on the path to success.
His 100 days anniversary brought him his first votes from steemcurator01. This was followed by random but consistent support from steemcurator01 on his subsequent posts. What did he do after?. He was powering up all of his big earnings. It is impressive, right? Yes, that’s how you win. Now these days, he doesn’t need to work as much looking for contests as in the early days because he is now well known and he is now just naturally mentioned in contests. However, he still replies to all the contests he features on his posts.
He is not only about consistency but there is another reason for his breakthrough. And that’s “proferring solution to a problem”. The most successful people in the world become so by bringing what others have not. Providing solutions to pending problems. Users especially newbies find it difficult looking for contests they want to participate in – the problem. Disconnected rat thereby compiles the list of all the ongoing contests on steemit with the prize and post links – the solution.
There are many ways for you to get your content noticed on Steemit. An effective way is to write about a topic that steemit users have a problem with and solve it in your post. This will help you gain a lot of attention because not only are you creating new content, but you’re also helping solve problems that many other users have as well. By doing so, they’ll be more willing to upvote your post because they know they can actually use it and benefit from it. In fact, some steemians even comment just how much better their lives became after reading your post! So if you want to get votes from steemit curators, start by writing about topics that people have a problem with and then offer them solutions through your posts. And when you do so, don’t forget to link back to your previous posts that helped solved these issues as well. For example, if someone commented asking how they could get followers on steemit and someone replied offering advice, include a link back to that reply in your next post too. This helps give credit where credit is due while at the same time increasing exposure for both yourself and those who helped contribute to answering questions/problems asked by others. A win-win situation for everyone involved! Another thing to keep in mind is that since there are a lot of steemians now, there's a good chance you'll run into duplicate problems. If so, consider adding your own spin or additional information based off what was already said before by other authors which can be helpful when trying to answer repetitive questions from readers. Or maybe try tackling one particular problem related to another person's question (such as coming up with ideas for activities). The possibilities are endless! Remember: solving people's problems isn't limited to just answering their comments either.
Steemcurator01, the most powerful curator on Steemit, votes for the top posts every day, Steemcurator01 to vote for your posts, there are a few things you can do to increase your chances of getting his votes.
The simplest way to get votes from steemcurator01 is by posting high-quality content that appeals to many people. You can also get votes by being active in several communities. To ensure you’re building these relationships, be sure you follow community guidelines and respond accordingly when you engage with others. This brings us to the latest update about engagement from the steemitblog.
Steemcurator01 said in one of his comments
We like to reward 'content with a purpose' and even better 'content with an audience'.
Who is going to read your content and what value are they going to get from it (be it information, education, entertainment, enjoyment)?
And who is your audience? If your posts aren't attracting any audience you need to either build an audience for your content, or try different content.
If you want votes or resteems, you will have to participate more in other peoples posts. Just commenting on your own post and expecting upvotes or resteems will not work. You need people actively engaging with your content and if they do, then they might also be active in voting and/or resteeming your post. So find active people on steemit and follow them and like/comment on their posts regularly. Don't just do it once a week. Do it daily. The same goes for resteeming others posts. It's all about consistency! Once you are consistently engaging with others on steemit, I am sure that soon enough they will start following you and that means more votes and resteems!
Many people believe that votes are given to great posts by default. However, if you ask a curator, they will tell you differently. In reality, receiving votes on steemit comes with hard work and dedication. You need to be committed enough to put in the time and effort needed in order for your content to rise above others. If you want your work rewarded with upvotes, spend some time working on making it better through research and rewriting until it becomes something special. The more time and effort you dedicate towards improving your writing skills, also means less time on other activities like watching TV or hanging out with friends. Dedicate as much free time as possible into making yourself a better writer! That way, when you do publish a post, it will have been worth all of your efforts. This goes hand-in-hand with persistence.
Don't give up on yourself just because one post didn't receive any rewards at first! Try again later and see what happens. With every post that you write, take another step closer to becoming an amazing writer worthy of receiving votes and recognition from everyone else on steemit too! Don't get discouraged - keep trying and keep getting better each time around! After all, learning never stops... so even after you become an expert writer (which is always evolving), continue practicing and sharing your knowledge with others in order to help them along their journey too! Practice makes perfect! ) A good place to start is to look at your own work and critique it. Did you make spelling mistakes? Did you use complicated words that made reading difficult? Did you use bullet points instead of paragraphs? Did you include images? What did these add to your post's overall appeal? Were there any things missing such as links or citations? Was anything unclear or confusing? Could anything be added/deleted/rephrased/reorganized without changing its meaning? Are there grammatical errors throughout which should be corrected using google translate then having someone proofread your changes afterwards? Is there redundancy in certain parts of your text? Make sure to check over everything carefully and correct anything that could be improved upon before publishing your next post!
Remember: Editing is important but can only fix so much. Take care not to edit yourself down too far while still keeping true to your original message. So remember: Writing well isn't easy but takes practice, patience, determination, and a willingness to learn & improve. It won't happen overnight but it will happen eventually if you stay dedicated and persistent! Persistence pays off! ) Let's talk about reputation for a moment now. One thing I learned quickly after joining steemit was how valuable steem power can be here due to how voting works between curators and authors alike. As a result, it's in your best interest to treat your reputation as if it were real money. Don't waste it on anything that doesn't matter and don't give it away freely to anyone who asks for it. Instead, save up as much of your steem power as you possibly can so that you'll be able to use it whenever you need to. Be selective with who you vote for and why! Don't ever feel obligated to vote for someone just because they asked or because everyone else is doing it. Your votes are a reflection of yourself and should be used wisely. Save up your votes so that when you do decide to use them, they will have maximum impact!
You should not give up.
I might use myself as an example in these cases. A week ago, it reached a year since I joined steemit. I have found steemit on my own and struggled to toggle through it since I have no one to guide me on what to do and not what to do. I didn’t have a good year as I struggled for many reasons. I had a major setback earlier this year that forced me out for several weeks. That moment was one of the toughest times I have had. There were doubts if I would be back on here or not. During my time away, I took on a writing course and I learnt the basics of writing and how to write more effectively. I learned about why it is important to make research before you create your content. I also got a premium Grammarly account to make my content error-free and more comprehensive. I made plans to reach the reputation of 60 before the end of the month and increase my steem power effectively. I knew it would require a lot of work and the current price of steem that’s affected the whole voting value wouldn’t help. Since I became a better writer, I had to show it. I wrote my first post. The fact that I needed to achieve my goal made me lose sleep and I have been writing every single day since then. 16 posts, 15,000+ words after, I am still shy of where I want to be. Despite that I am tired and have only been able to sleep 3 hours daily, I still want to keep going. All the votes that I have received on all the 16 posts, despite being quality content do not reach a single big vote from the steemcurator01 account. But no one should give up until their work is noticed. I strongly believe that effort pays and it’ll all sum up to something one day.
It is also important for everyone to visit the @steemitblog page regularly and read through the new announcement. It would help us know what exactly we need to know about the guidelines to get supported.
Lastly, avoid mentioning steemcurator01 or steemcurator02 in your posts. Put yourself in thier shoes and think why you must make this decision. Thank you for reading so far!
