Welcome to the 365th BIRTHDAY Edition of the Daily Qurator. Below you will find some awesome members of @qurator that worked hard to post some good quality content for all you awesome Steemians to enjoy!

Your Quality Curator ~( @goldendawne )~ Presents:


About a week ago, founder of @qurator (@scrooger) hosted a contest and had members pick a number they thought was their “number” of when they joined the group and community, you can see the winners here; so in honor of @qurator's first BIRTHDAY, I thought it would be fun to see who the first five (still 100% active) members were and feature his or her posts here today on the 365 post of @qurator's inception.

I am member number 104 but have been writing, reading and curating for @qurator since newsletter edition 69 and it has been a BLAST; to say the least! I wanted to thank @scrooger for allowing me the chance to write the newsletter, to continue adding new weekly contests to recognize ALL of our members and for giving me the opportunity to grow with the group and community. YOU'RE THE BEST!

Out Of My Way!

Little spider on the tree,
crawling slowly towards me,
I got a shoe,
that wasn't blue,
I whacked it!

...moved the spider away from me.

The King Showing Off Before Setting

Shot in Poland last year in November. Don't let the blue sky and the springy look trick you. It was cold. I think even the lens shrunk a little bit...

Another day, another unidentifiable flower... red one too!
A lily?
Such a bright red ~ it was calling out to me...
How could I not take its picture?

My Newest Loan On Kiva

My previous loan – a $25 share of the $100,000 total loan – to Cacao De Aroma has been successfully repaid and I saw that they are fundraising for their third loan on
Cacao de Aroma wants to continue increasing the amounts of cacao they can buy from small farmers and improve farmers livelihoods by paying up to 30% higher prices.

Are You Just A Facilitator Or Are You An Enabler?

If you could give people something for free, what would it be and why?
This is a very interesting question that came up in my class one day. Students had a lot to say about this, but this make me think a little and my answer was something like this

Introducing Referral Bonuses!

Dear Qurites,

We know times are tough now and we all have to push a little bit harder. We came up with two programs that will help you earn some extra upvotes and visibility from Qurator, and will also help Qurator to reach more Steemians/your friends that need some extra help.

Write a post about Qurator.

Our long time members know how it all works. You have been with us through thick and thin.

Share your experience with your friends and followers. We would love to know how our members see Qurator and what they like (or don't) the most about the project.
Feel free to write in your own native language. We are open to all languages and have already translated our main Qurator post to several languages.
Well written posts will receive some extra upvote love from Qurator and a resteem. :) Feel free to drop your post link in our Daily Qurator comment section, so we don't miss it.

Invite a friend.

Do you know someone who is starting out? Or maybe someone who is posting great posts for a while but still need more exposure? Refer Qurator to your friend and after they get approved and become a member you will also receive a bonus 1SBD upvote on your most recent posts.

There are two ways to do it and this is how it works:

Option 1 - Referrals
Option2 - Sponsorship
1You refer a friend to QuratorYou sponsor a membership to your friend
2Your friend sends registration fee to Qurator and mentions your name in the memo: referred by @your_steemit_usernameYou send registration fee to @qurator with your the person's name in memo: @your_friends_username
3Our team reviews the accountOur team reviews the account
4Your friend is approved - you receive a 1SBD upvoteYour friend is approved - you receive 1SBD upvote

Keep in mind that all registration rules still apply and all account will be reviewed by our team. You can read about content requirements in THIS post.

Steemauto Curation Trail

The new curation trail is active and running! If you would like to support your fellow Qurites or just earn some extra curation feel free to join our curation trail that is active on Steemauto.
Steemauto guide and registration info

We suggest not following the trail with 100%, steemauto has 2 ways of following a trail, static or scaled. We suggest using SCALED instead of static since static votes can add up quickly and drain VP very fast. We suggest using scaled and then maybe around 25%.

Steemauto can show us who is currently on the trail and at what percentage. Looking forward to see more Qurites joining the trail in the near future! We also reward the team players and there might be a nice surprise for a lucky trailer. =P
