So, what's all this then?
My goals here are to foster interaction on steem and provide visibility for good content.
Why not just resteem
This is basically a UI issue; I've noted in my feed that some great accounts which resteem dozens of times a day tend to drown out other posts. Until there's a way to separate author-content from resteems in there general steem-verse (i.e. on Steemit), I don't like resteeming much.
Criteria and format
The only real criterion I have is that the article should be something I was happy to have read. Ideally, it would be recent enough to still be active for 3 to 4 days after I post. A few other other things:
- There's no restriction on category, though I tend to read more STEM/nerdy stuff
- The list is not exhaustive
- If I left you off, it's not because I don't think your post was worth reading
- I'm still figuring out how to arrange topics
- Post order is like the point system on 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' - meaningless
- If you're a prolific author, I might only list one post in full format, then mention others.
- If I post your stuff a lot, I may leave you out from time to time to make room for others.
- If time allows, I may provide commentary on posts, but right now I'm letting them stand on their own merits.
- Artists! I'm trying to post your art in such a way that people can see enough of it to know if they want to follow the link. I definitely don't want to just repost your stuff in full resolution. Let me know what makes you happy.
Call to Action
I enjoyed compiling this list and you can do it, too. Even if your vote counts for nothing and you have 3 whole followers, start keeping track of what you actually liked reading and let the world know about it. I don't think there's a relevant tag yet, so let's go ahead and use #readinglog. If there is a better tag out there, let me know.
Remember, a community without interactions is just a bunch of people. Comment, vote, promote, even resteem!
