Curation Experiment! And Thank You!steemCreated with Sketch.

in #minnowsupport5 years ago (edited)

Hello all! @D-pend here,

Just wanted to share the curation experiment I am doing for several days. I'm going to be following @minnowsupport curation trail via streemian. I'm curious to see how it works out return-wise, but more importantly, I want to give back to the group that has made me feel welcome since day one on Steemit!

Picture taken near Kovalam, in Kerala, India. It has absolutely no relevance to this post.

This means that I won't be voting as much as I have been, and when I do it will be small amounts, because I want to conserve most of my voting power towards the @minnowsupport trail. If any of you reading this are new users wanting to get help in connecting with more people on Steemit and getting your posts more exposure, I would highly recommend joining the PAL discord and registering to be part of the project here:

Enjoy another random photo. This one is from the trail to the Holy Cross waterfall in Boone, NC.

I want to sincerely thank the creators, moderators, contributors, and all the members of Minnow Support for making it much easy for new users to connect with the community at large. I also want to say thank you to all the people that have reached out to me individually during my three weeks on Steemit. I've tried my best to also reach out to people and encourage them, and will continue to do so, because I very much enjoy supporting others :)

The sunset an hour ago outside my apartment. This one's slightly more relevant. Or at least recent.

I want to conclude with more gratitude towards this community. I have felt more motivated and inspired to embrace myself artistically on Steemit than ever before on any other social media platform. It is truly a beautiful thing and I will strive to consistently create and share quality content, and share my heart through my interactions on the site. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and I thank you for reading this update.

Hi Dan, how does the minnowsupport trail work?

Lol! I was using, and it didn't let me use the voting slider. So enjoy a 100% upvote hahaha... That's really odd if they don't have that feature, or maybe I just don't know how to access it

Cheers, have one back!!

Thanks haha. I already ruined my 1% voting experiment...

You follow the trail through a third-party service called Streemian. Once your account is verified (private active key, which gives upvote permission) you go to curation trails and click "follow" on minnowsupport. Then the system will automatically use your voting power to upvote registered members of the project's posts. However it doesn't seem to lower your voting power below 70%. It gives lots of tiny strength upvotes.

So signing up with Streemian is my first step? Ok bro, I'll get on my laptop and sign up..

Gratitude is the proper attitude :)

Nice pics!! They say the best camera, is the one you have with you!
I see your in Boone NC. I got a relation down around Marshall NC. Nice country down there. Im in Michigan. I followed :)

Hi d-pend. What you are doing is a wonderful, giving gesture. I recently joined minnow support and discord and found it a very helpful and supportive group. I also always upvote them each time. I'd be interested in how your trial works out. I may have to ask my daughter about it because I'm not very good with the whole computer process. You are a very caring and giving individual and good karma will come your way. Thank-you for this post and your beautiful pictures!

I followed for a time - the extent of my voting power was not strong enough to make it particularly lucrative, or provide a lot of upvote potential.

However, delegation has proven to be both helpful to the cause and helpful to me in the form of the bot upvote. I plan on delegating all my SP at the 500 and 1000 level for that reason.

You mean delegating some of your SP to minnowsupport? How does that work, and what do you mean by a bot upvote?

This post has received a sweet gift of Dank Amps in the flavor of 24.13 % upvote from @lovejuice thanks to: @d-pend. Vote for Aggroed!
