OCD DAILY - Issue #71




Welcome to the 71st issue of @OCD Daily!

Issue #71 highlights content from ten (10) fantastic Steemit Content Creators! The OCD team on its journey continues to search tirelessly throughout Steemit for undervalued gems as provided by relatively new users.

Today our curators, under our steadfast leader, @acidyo, have delivered ten incredible pieces of original content to share with you! These works as provided by newer Steemit users don’t have the audience which their quality content deserves. @OCD strives to provide that audience and intends to showcase Steemit users who put in tremendous effort to create flourishing content.

The nomination process
A curator will FIND a piece of work (typically from newer users), within 24 hours that piece has been submitted from the curator to the @ocd team, votes tallied and the pieces with the most votes are placed into the compilation.

We encourage you to visit these blogs and to show these great Steemians your support and encouragement.

If you enjoyed their work give them a Follow or maybe even say Hello!

All of the content as chosen by our curators is undervalued, but there is always one piece that rises to the top. That piece is seen as universally appreciated and valued making it OCD’s Top Nomination of the Day.

Today’s Top Nomination is an insightful post and vlog showing @wholesomeroots's preparation for hurricane Irma on his farm in Georgia. In this post, curated by @jeanpi1908, we learn about the extent of his process as he guides us through the steps of insuring their animals are safe for Irma's impact on their land. You can see various pictures of their farm along with their vlog by following the link below:

Our second gem for the day is by @krazykrista who debunks the famous wives tale that being cold makes you sick. She informs us of the misconceptions of cold weather and our immune system's reaction. This blog curated by @saywha is filled with surprising facts that make me think twice before telling kids to grab their coat this winter. Check it out at the link below:

Our fifth piece for today, curated by @mobbs, is a video featuring the talented violin teacher @buckydurddle as he plays a improvised piece inspired by a watercolor painting by @camila. It's inspiring to see this within our small art community here on steemit. The fact that we are able to create incredible works of art inspired each other is so refreshing. I highly recommend checking out his post and watching the short video, you can check out the link below:

Our eighth piece for today is a thought provoking post by @bitdollar as he explores the question of why the human brain and our thoughts work the way they do. This interesting post curated by @guyfawkes4-20 discusses the curiosities of our mind and consciousness, a topic that we don't usually know much about even though we use our mind every second of everyday. Let your curiosities roam as you read the link below:
