Introducing Insaddle: Your best travel assistant

in #introduceyourself5 years ago (edited)


Introducing InSaddle

Insaddle is a project created by @danielw and @piotr42 that will bring you unusual trails, top destinations, handful guidelines and reports from the broad world of traveling.

In this modern times, we are too often stuck with our 9-5 jobs that are little by little draining us from our creative thoughts. Since our minds are constantly preoccupied, we're missing out on the biggest investment opportunity we can encounter in a lifetime.

That is self-development.

At @insaddle we believe that growth is a vital part of ones life and can be achieved by stepping out of our comfort zone into the unknown. Opening up to the world and putting prejudices aside isn't an easy task though.

That's why we've created @insaddle.

Our mission

We're a team of passionate individuals, dedicated to creating a community that will support and reward your efforts to better yourself and the world around. Because traveling did so much good in our own lives, we'd like to spread the positive vibe and encourage you to hit the road yourself. We believe that traveling is a cure for all the modern world diseases like fatigue, depression, desolation and more...

Traveling will help you get the most of your own life.


Well, to begin with, traveling is a great way of:

  • developing a wider world view
  • experiencing the unfamiliar
  • challenging yourself
  • getting an insight of who you are
  • appreciating your life

Sounds sweet as honey to your ears? Then come and voyage all over the world with us!

  • Participate in a process of building a traveler knowledge base

  • Trail - providing a trail to a destination with coordinates and a map
  • Location - sharing a location that is worth visiting
  • Accommodation - pointing out to a tested accommodation eg. stealth camping, hostel

  • more to come;

The list of the best posts in a given category will be created and shared on a daily basics. The top three entries for each category will be upvoted by @insaddle with a 100% vote weight.

Plans for the future

We're currently collaborating with a charity that supports creative initiatives. Once we both grow big enough, we're planning to start a sponsorship program that will help us equip the most active travelers with tents, sleeping bags and pads, flashlights, power banks etc.

We're also planning to launch a witness node in the near future so we can further invest in the development of the InSaddle project.

Hello insaddle! Welcome to Steemit! Hope you'll like the community here. As a start, here are 5 tips that we believe will be helpful to you:

  1. Keep your passwords safe: Unlike conventional sites, Steemit has 4 types of passwords. Each offers varying degrees of access to your account, so know where and when to use each of them. Also, make sure to keep them all safe and secure.
  2. Get Steem rewards: When writing a post, you'll have the option to choose how to receive your reward: "Default 50%/50%" or "Power Up 100%". As of this moment, choosing Default 50%/50% is the better option. But this can change over time. Check our post to know more.
  3. Upvote wisely: When upvoting, wait at least 30 minutes after the post is published to maximize your curation reward. Also, make sure not to upvote too much too fast so as not to drain your voting power.
  4. Know your Steem, Steem Dollars and Steem Power: Steem and Steem Dollars are the 2 main currencies here. Convert and power up more Steem into Steem Power so you can have higher values on your upvotes.
  5. Have Fun and Enjoy!

Welcome to Steem Community @insaddle! As a gentle reminder, please keep your master password safe. The best practise is to use your private posting key to login to Steemit when posting; and the private active key for wallet related transactions.
