Introducing The Kingmaker Writing Contest, #SharkSchool University, And Omniloquent Publishing - Three #SharkSchool Initiatives That Incentivize Steemit Users To Step Their Game Up

in sharkschool •  3 months ago



Fuck being advertiser-friendly. That shit is overrated.

That's really the problem with this website. Everyone is trying to say what they think other people want to hear. It's all a giant popularity contest made even worse by the fact that money is at stake.

Fine. I get it. You don't want to ruffle any feathers and risk not getting upvotes. Or worse, getting flagged.

But I personally believe that this giant circle-jerk is what's is holding back this website from exploding. Has nothing to do with payouts, rewards, centralization of SP or any of that bullshit that people just can't help themselves from complaining about.

It is 100% based on the fact that people are not properly incentivized to create original, thought-provoking content that may not be advertiser-friendly.

And instead of this being yet another, "Someone should do something!" post, I'm going to tell you what I - The Golden Boy Of Steemit, He Who Everyone Loves To Hate, World-Record Holder In Total Steemit Groupies, The Pepper To The Salty Circle Jerkers, Undisputed King Of The Trending Page, His Embarrassingly-Handsome Excellency And #1 Ranked In Modesty @YallaPapi - am going to do about it.

The Kingmaker Writing Contest

Allegedly there are heaps of high quality writers and content creators on here. I haven't seen very many.

Shit, I rarely even read anything that's been spellchecked on this dumpster fire of a website. But apparently these people are out there, and these poor souls aren't getting the attention they deserve because of people like Big Bad @YallaPapi who is taking .115% of the reward pool by buying upvotes for his weekly posts.

But you know what? I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. So here's what I'm going to do:

From now on, all of the profits from my #sharkschool posts (beginning with #6, the most recent one) will go to a curation fund that is dedicated to highlighting EXCEPTIONAL authors who write articles according to certain specifications.

The winner of the contest will receive enough paid upvotes to hit the Trending page "above the fold." This means that when you click on the Trending tab, their post will be clearly visible (if not the top ranked post). Expect the total amount of upvotes purchased to be around $200 SBD per winner.

They will also earn a special distinction in upcoming #sharkschool posts in the signature linking to previous posts.

Here are the guidelines for the posts:

  1. Spelling and grammar-checked
  2. Properly formatted with headers, images, etc
  3. Easy to read (use paragraphs motherfucker)
  4. About an interesting topic that has not been beaten to death on this site before
  5. States an OPINION about something. No news articles or history lessons unless they are an editorial
  6. Must be at least 1500 words in length (excluding links to previous work, your signature, etc)
  7. Deadline for submission is the 1st of every month. Contest winners (if any) are announced on the 15th of every month

As you can see, it's fairly straightforward. If you think these guidelines are wrong, I don't give a shit. This is what I want to see and I am spending my own money so you can go fuck yourself if you don't agree.

This platform needs more content that is like mine. NOT THE ABRASIVE TONE, but longform articles that elicit actual opinions and facilitate engagement.

The content needs to be so good that it makes people forget that they are here for the money.

Furthermore, you do not need to officially enter this competition in order to participate. Of course it's better if you send submissions directly, but I will be snooping around looking for high quality content on my own. You are also encouraged to send me other people's content that you think is good. You can tag me, #sharkschool, email it, whatever.

I know there are a lot of people who openly disagree with my methods and would not enter the contest simply because they don't like me. I don't want them to be excluded from the contest just because of that. If you are one of those people and you write something that I find amazing, I will put you on the Trending page.

There are no "back-scratching" elements to this contest either. You do not have to join the Discord, leave a link to the email list, or even mention me. Obviously it may help your visibility if you do so, but you can circumvent this by emailing your article to me directly.

This contest is open to anyone who does not have the means to reliably hit the Trending page with each post. For example, user @lexiconical is probably the most well-rounded author I've seen on here, but I won't consider him for the contest because he already has the means to work the system.

#SharkSchool Discord mods are also prohibited from competing.

How to become a King

  1. Write a post according to the guidelines above
  2. Send submissions to yalla.papi@gmail.com
  3. Paste your submission into the body of the email. Attachments will not be opened
  4. If you have already posted the content, email me a link or send it to me via Discord (content must be less than 3.5 days old to comply with @GrumpyCat's rules)

Don't bother sending me anything if it doesn't match the guidelines. I will give it a cursory glance and only read it if I see that it fits the criteria.

Do not pander to me either. I don't want to read posts about how @yallapapi is the sexiest man alive or how #sharkschool can cure cancer. I am vain but I'm not stupid. Write something original that would hold its own on a website that takes itself seriously.

Finally, I will be promoting this contest off of Steemit as well.

There are literally thousands of hungry authors out there who are capable of producing quality content and have no idea that Steemit even exists.

What do you think their reaction will be when they hear that there is an ongoing writing contest that will not only reward them with hundreds of dollars in crypto, but ALSO get them massive exposure for their work?

#SharkSchool University

So a many of you know, there is a Discord chat for #sharkschool where we get together and do Discord chat things. One of my mods, @flashfiction, suggested that we create a school for users who are looking for additional help and are willing to pay for it.

I'm admittedly going to blatantly copy what @steemschools is doing with some minor modifications. @Dobartim has done an excellent job structuring their program. Join his Discord here.

(No, he's not paying me to mention him. We've never spoken.)

Here's how it's going to work:

  • Teachers sign up to teach a class based around a certain topic
  • Once approved, they are given a voice channel in the Discord group to teach their class
  • Profit is split equally between the affiliate, teacher and #sharkschool
  • Classes can be about any topic (preferably content creation and online marketing, but any topic is fine)
  • Classes can be held in any language
  • Teachers can choose to charge per class/course or with a monthly subscription fee
  • Teachers are in charge of promoting their own classes, though there will be an affiliate program
  • Approved teachers may use the #sharkschool brand to promote themselves
  • All approved classes will receive a link and a mention in all upcoming #sharkschool posts

Now let's talk about payment:

  1. 1/3 goes to the affiliate
  2. 1/3 goes to the teacher
  3. 1/3 goes to #sharkschool

If you are the teacher of the class and you also bring the student to the school, then you get 2/3 of whatever you decide to charge. These are the official payouts from #sharkschool, but aspiring teachers are recommended to come up with their own incentives for affiliates.

For example, you could offer the first month's subscription fee as a commission for each new user referred. Or half of the first month's fee. Or a free membership to your VIP mentoring group. Whatever. Get creative.

Thinking of teaching a class but no idea where to start? Here are some ideas to get the juices flowing:

  1. Create a PDF and give it away for free to expose people to your brand and create interest in your class
  2. Search for related posts in your niche on Steemit and leave a comment promoting your course
  3. Insert a paragraph or two about your class at the bottom of all your Steemit posts
  4. Find related subreddits and offer your course/PDF
  5. Find related Facebook groups and offer your course/PDF
  6. Submit a short video to dtube introducing yourself and the purpose of your course. Promote it accordingly
  7. Collaborate with another Steemit user in your niche and team up to split the work involved
  8. Create a group in your niche where everyone submits a different lesson every week
  9. Reach out to an expert in your niche and offer to schedule a class for them to promote their brand. You promote the class, they teach it, and you split the profits
  10. Start a course that hosts different experts in a given niche every week
  11. Interview small business owners/digital nomads every week in your niche with questions generated from your audience
  12. Offer a webinar that walks users through a specific process via screenshare

Just came up with those off the top of my head. I don't care what you want to teach as long as it's not something that will put me on an FBI watchlist.

Omniloquent Publishing

A few years ago I was living in Berlin and decided to make a go of becoming a full-time author. My plan was to self-publish books to Amazon and live off the income.

Back then, the big money maker was in writing erotica short stories. So I'd sit there and write 3-5k words a day of text-based pornography, eventually giving up after about 50 stories.

I did make a little money, but my strategy was short sighted. I wasn't trying to make a name for myself as an author. I was just trying to capitalize on an impulsive market.

Had I been a little smarter, I would have put more effort into building my brand and building a fan base. Not just selling fantasies to bored housewives who wanted something to read before taking a warm bath.

Still, over the course of a few months I learned a lot about self publishing on Amazon. I know how to format the books with Calibre. I know how to design a cover. And I know how to promote the book so it gets enough exposure to be profitable.

The best thing about publishing on Amazon is that once you create the asset, it stays there forever. Write it once and get paid for the rest of your life. That said, I haven't looked at my KDP account in years, but if I put the work into promoting those sex books then I'm sure I could turn that into an extra few hundred bucks per month.

Anyway, I'll get to the point. I'm creating a publishing company that will use Amazon's self-publishing service to promote collaborative works based around various topics.

Here's how this will work:

  • We choose a topic for the book (crypto, self improvement, productivity, whatever)
  • Authors contribute at least one chapter each to the book
  • The book is edited and formatted for Amazon
  • The book is published to Amazon in both ebook and paperback format (both possible via Amazon's KDP program)
  • Content does not need to be unique, but you must own the rights to it (i.e. I can submit one of my Steemit posts even though it's already public info)
  • Each book will have a Lead Author who is responsible for vetting authors and collecting content for the book
  • Authors may include a link to their website, social media profiles, Steemit blog, whatever
  • Assuming equal contributions, authors are paid an equal portion of the profits over time (i.e.10 authors = 1/10 each)
  • Authors are all encouraged to promote the book to their own audience. 10x promotion = 10x exposure
  • A portion of the #sharkschool profits will be set aside to promoting the book through paid ads
  • Approved submissions will be posted from a separate Steemit account and receive a special mention in my signature

So let's talk promotion for a second.

For those of you who don't know, Amazon has a program called KDP Select. Without getting into too much detail, they allow authors to give their book away for free for 5 days every 3 months. The more free downloads a book gets, the higher it gets pushed up the Top 100 page. The higher the book is listed, the more likely it is that it will be downloaded/purchased.

The trick to promoting a book on Amazon is getting as many free downloads as possible during these free days. The more exposure the book gets, the highest it gets pushed on the list and the longer it stays there. That means more sales.

There are paid services that promote your book to massive lists of people who are looking for free book downloads. A portion of the proceeds from #sharkschool initiatives will go towards these services.

Please note that this is not a get rich quick scheme by any means. Amazon takes 60 days to pay out on sales of that month. So if you sell a book in January, you don't get paid until April.

Here are some of the niches I'd like to publish in:

  • Erotica/Romance
  • Science fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Self-improvement/motivation
  • Finance
  • How to books
  • Anything else that makes money. I'm open to suggestions.

If you want to be a Lead Author or contribute something, email me at yalla.papi@gmail.com or send me a message on Discord. Include the following:

  1. Steemit username
  2. Do you want to be a Lead Author? If so, include a book proposal
  3. Topics you are comfortable writing about
  4. How you can contribute to marketing the book once it's published
  5. Your plan for finding authors who want to contribute chapters to the book
  6. Anything else I need to know

Why am I doing this?

Money? Obviously.

Utilizing other people's time and energy to promote my own brand? Yup.

Endearing people to me for offering them the opportunity to earn more money from the content they create? Sure why not.

But to tell you the truth, the real reason I'm doing this is my disgust at the sense of entitlement that pervades this platform.

I'm baffled by the fact that people feel they deserve to make money from unedited, soulless, unironically sad low-effort posts and comments. They bury their heads in the sand, ignore the fact that capitalism is what makes the world go round, and can't shut the fuck up about what "should" happen. What "someone" should do.

Fuck that shit. There is no "someone." There is no "should." There is only YOU and what you are or are not going to do to change things. And crying like a little bitch does not count.

What have you done other than complain? What initiative have you started? Who have you reached out to? How have you contributed to the community you claim to love so much other than circle-jerking each other's shit posts into oblivion? What group have you started? Who have you brought together to make a change for the better?

Believe it or not, I'm not doing this because I have an overinflated ego. I'm actually a very modest and nice person in real life. But I ham it up on here because being on this website makes me feel like Mugatu in Zoolander when he points out that all of Derek's looks are the same.

People think that if you just add the word "blockchain" or "crypto" to something, then all the rules fly out the window and everyone is automatically guaranteed to make millions of dollars for doing nothing.

I'm doing this to show you that if you want to make it happen for yourself, you need be 10x more proactive than you are right now. You need to create programs and bring people together. You need to make engaging content that people enjoy reading all the way to the end, even if they have the attention span of a goldfish.

Fuck crypto. There are no shortcuts. People who got rich from Bitcoin et al did so because they bought drugs on the internet back before anyone knew what Bitcoin even was. The gold rush is over. You have no chance to replicate that, so stop trying. Do yourself a favor and give up on that dream, because it's never going to happen.

But what you CAN do is something that has been working for the entire history of human civilization: work continuously on growing a business that generates profit from day 1. Nothing happens in this world without hustlers who get out there every day and make moves to build their own empire.

Does it always work? Nope. Shit, maybe none of the things that I listed in here will ever happen. Maybe tomorrow Steemit will disappear and #sharkschool will fade into obscurity. But as long as you are going to try, then you might as well do it right.

Furthermore, you'll also notice that the things I listed above all incorporate promotion on sites outside of the Steem ecosystem. That's because in order to grow, this place needs new blood. Every day it's the same old shit rehashed over and over again.

There is no actual content anymore. It's just posts about how the system is fucked or ads promoting some fucking billboard company. Seriously what the fuck? Who is going to find that link outside Steemit, read it and then be like, "Wow this is so interesting, let me see what else is on here?" Nobody.

No disrespect to them, whoever they are. I understand we all gotta eat. But nobody watches TV for the commercials. They watch for the shows. We want to fall in love with the characters and hate the bad guys. We want to see Walter White get away with selling meth and killing people even though we know he's not going to. We don't watch because we like chicken.

Can't get enough of your love

Everything I've written about these initiatives is designed to entice non-Steemit users to come and give the platform a try.

Who wouldn't want to create an account on here and paste some of their best work for a chance to win $500? Who wouldn't submit something they've already written to an anthology for a percentage of the profits? What writer doesn't want thousands of people to read work they are proud of?

Yes, I will hopefully make a little money in the process, but so what? Nobody on here isn't doing it for the money. Even the people who claim to want to remove upvote bots to "level the playing field" (lol) ostensibly want to do that so new users and/or "high quality" content creators will have a chance to EARN MORE MONEY.

Offering massive rewards is how you get people here and earn a chance to keep them. Not with nonsensical posts about why STEEM will moon by 2019 or the latest news from some Steemit convention.

Tempt them with money and MAYBE they'll see the same value in it that the rest of us do. Create incentives for them to participate in and properly reward them, just like I am doing. And incentivize YOURSELF by paying yourself out of your profits.

Or don't.

Actually yeah, fuck all that. Just keep complaining about how the system is fucked instead of actually doing something to improve it. Hey I know, why don't you start a crusade to flag all Trending posts that use paid upvote bots, but then use it as an excuse to cherrypick your downvotes for authors who threaten your control over the platform?

Don't pay attention to whether or not the author put any time into writing the post either. Does the level of quality of the piece relative to the rest of the content on the site matter? Nah. Who cares about that?

LOL. You guys are so short-sighted it's not even funny. You don't see the big picture.

Fuck the reward pool. 2% of accounts control 95% of all the SP on this site anyway and they're not even active accounts. You want to pander to them so you can fight over scraps? Go ahead.

Meanwhile, I'll be coming up with ideas like these to grow the platform, encourage people to create better content, and put some money in my pocket while doing it. All while keeping my dignity in tact, staying out of the circle-jerk, and writing about whatever the fuck I want. And there's literally no reason that you can't do the same.

Up to you.

Other than the reward pool, what are some other ways to use Steemit to make some money?

every time i think i know something i find another book, @yallapapi i think your a great writer dude and your insights are priceless, i would hate to see the communists dictating the platform for their own sad and boring lives. Mentioning the thousands that left in the past because of no upvotes at all even if they had good content they couldn't make a buck. Note: nothing can grow in a sterile environment . I think your services do have a value to the community that is rapidly changing after what seems the dissolve of minnowbooster the bid bots are only fulfilling a valuable service, Steemit is evolving those who enjoyed the profits from the start good for you, those who make a buck now good for you, somebody tells you retention is low and people leave i tell others that's normal because they come here to make money, from the start they get criticized for poor content because their not really writers make no money and leave, wheres the support do you know how very few posts pay for participation at least for some they can pick up that initial coin to buy a vote and begin to make a buck. yeah i know i sound like a drug dealer but yes the best and fastest way to get users is to give away free samples every smart marketer knows that. yours truly @darsico

Hi follow me plz

I actually really like this post and the initiative. I did downvote though while playing with the Clean Trending toy. You make a valid point though. Most people are just writing/saying what they think they'll get paid to say. I'd like to see that change, but it's not an easy one.

·

·

Even if he made a valid point, the post is highly overrated. The irony in his second sentence is rich indeed.

·
·

I upvoted!

This is a brilliant initiative, @yallapapi. I'm "bouche-bée". On one hand you claim that Steemit is going down the drain and on the other you prove that it doesn't have to - with people like you around, clearly I need to buy more STEEM.

Here is my submission for the Kingmaker Writing contest.

I didn't manage to understand the thing about submitting up to the 1st but then the post should eb less than 3.5 days old and the winner is anounced on the 15th by which time the post would be way past the payout date and thus could not benefit from your push up ... You might want to clear that up.

Thanks for sharing




When I imagine, how does you write such a short post.

All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.

"As you can see, it's fairly straightforward. If you think these guidelines are wrong, I don't give a shit. This is what I want to see and I am spending my own money so you can go fuck yourself if you don't agree."

How about fuck you! Bitbot spammer, nobody gives a fuck what you're offering none of it is actually 'your' money anyway. Spammer, botter, platform destroyer... fuck you!

·
·
·

As I said, you're a bum. And it won't last, enjoy it nowwwww

Your posts are f'n brutal, but honest. Keep cleaning out the pc crowd.

"They bury their heads in the sand, ignore the fact that capitalism is what makes the world go round, and can't shut the fuck up about what "should" happen. What "someone" should do.
Fuck that shit. There is no "someone." There is no "should." There is only YOU and what you are or are not going to do to change things. And crying like a little bitch does not count.
What have you done other than complain? What initiative have you started? Who have you reached out to? How have you contributed to the community you claim to love so much other than circle-jerking each other's shit posts into oblivion? What group have you started? Who have you brought together to make a change for the better ? "

The content of this post is very powerful this paragraph alone speaks volumes , it is of great importance to have the ability to comprehend that this is how every idea becomes successful , organized , and profitable ! Regardless of the business , trend , or even the sheer scale of work being accomplished , there is one common denominator that has to be present before any progress can be made no matter what the task at hand is. With this post you laid out a universal foundation for success in any venture ,business or otherwise.
This paragraph is so applicable and valid that it holds true when put up to any situation that you face on a daily basis , and that is what this platform is about . If you want to create a fakebook be my guest there is no room for sheeple on #steemit , no time for restricted speech and favoritism toward left wing liberal content being jammed down our throats , (especially when I already have your dick taking up that space!) lol I understand what you mean , it is insulting when you receive comments/replies that are riddled with meaningless compliments that are motivated not by the content of the post , but by the amount of $$$ they'll make off of your upvote's/resteem's and the exposure from your reputation ! Truth is , the average persons life isn't an extravagant action packed adventure that has you on the edge of your seat. #steemit is where you go to escape the sheeple and deal in " REALITY " .
You couldn't have said it any better brother , I showed you some love , my bad I got carried away on the comment but man that shit just rings so fucken true and with what you have to offer for the betterment of anybody that is willing to come get em some proves you don't just talk about it , you about it !!!! My favorite paragraph above sums it up for me................ #steeeeeeeeeeeeeemmonnnnnnnnnn bro they don't build em the way they used to !!!!!!!!!!!!!

While FB, Twitter, Google and others have banned crypto ads they haven't banned book ads or course landing pages. I'm not sure how familiar you are with the ad platforms but the above + Youtube are all fairly inexpensive ways to drive traffic. I know I come off a twat but nah, genuine feedback here. I've used all 4 of the above to drive traffic for clients. They're super effective and all four platforms have rapid pace academies to learn to create great ads.

I'm adding this because if you roll out the eBooks, Courses, etc. these can offer an affordable traffic bump. I've rarely ever had an add not break even or better, even on 10K/day campaigns.

The bonus there is if the content has virality, it just takes off on its own. Jerry Banfield and Joe Parys are two that go hard with Youtube ads.

Will be hearing from me soon with my submissions (likely via email and discord.) Can a girl be a King? I think so. Lol. :)

·

Due to the crypto ban on major ad networks, the alternative networks like http://www.popads.net and http://www.propellerads.com will start to have more traffic and volume.

Time for the crypto community to get themselves familiar with some alternatives to the big guys.

Anyone know if Bing is still allowing crypto related ads?

·
·

Actually, I never checked if Bing and Yahoo banned crypto ads. True, they're also really great ad platforms that few people use. Hm. Something to consider. I know bing has it's own coin now lol

·
·
·

Really!?? Did not know Bing had its own crypto coin. Will look it up. Thanks for the heads up.

·
·
·
·

Not sure if it's a token or crypto but you can earn through a dashboard. I've gotten a few prizes. Not bad for something I already use. Works on xbox.

·
·

heyyy According to a recent update to their Financial Services policy Google will ban all cryptocurrency-related advertising of all types in June 2018.

·
·
·

Yes, I've stated that. Other platforms are banning them also. However, an eBook is not a crypto-related ad— even if it's an eBook about Gardening compiled from contributions from Steemit.

Trust me, I've been doing this for years. He can advertise his books.

wow you make very nice post .this post i learn so many things.which is my life can useable

·
·

stfu bitch

Wow, You invested $578 via bid-bots on this post & you are getting $634.34 (including my upvote which is a miserable amount) at the time of writing. Already getting 9.7% ROI for a day's old post, say we extrapolate this to 7 days, you'd get a staggering 67.9% ROI on this post, possibly a good 50% ROI after deducting curation. I am watching & monitoring. This could be a good way to make money here. Great ROIs, like I've not seen anywhere (50% every 7 days). This is too good to be true. I am watching this and other post too.

·

He is pathetic.. and ugly

·

The ROI is actually much better than that but I wouldn't look at it that way. Yes, it is possible to make good money on here if you make lots of posts and have a lot of money to spend on paid upvotes. But 50% of your earnings are not liquid and you are subject to the volatility of the crypto market. Not a good combination.

Also, the ROI does not increase daily. Normally posts are upvoted within 1-2 days and the rewards stay where they are.

·
·

All lies. Now shut up and play bitch, bitch.

·

Actually the ROI is not that, you also have to subtract the 25% curation reward the curators (in this case mostly bid-bots) take, so if I'm not wrong $634*25%=$158.00, better said you will get back about $476.00 so it would really be a loss. But of course there are other factors like at what price SBD was when you purchased the bid bot vote and at what price it is when you get paid, so yes maybe @yallapapi could have a profit just not what you think it is.

I consider your initiative very good to promote and make a profit. But I also value the support that other steemis offer, in order to raise categories or obtain ascending votes. Good post, I follow you.
I invite you to visit my profile and have your support. Thank you.

ResteemBot's Maker is Looking for Work

I took time out to read your post and I could not agree any less. I'm referring to the part where you knocked those threatening to downvote posts on Trending page. It is really absurd! I had read such posts before and I was annoyed. They really don't know how things work here.

As for initiative for writers, it is a good one. To me, the requirements are even more simple than similar ones seeking to reward good writers. I fully support your initiatives.

The issue is that they do not downvote all posts.

They downvote the ones they don’t like and use the excuse of bid bots as justification. Feel free to check.

"Fuck being advertiser-friendly. That shit is overrated. "

The line that caught my eye, and I am cracking up all the way down the post. Love it...you sir are definitely part of what makes Steemit so fucking cool!!
Besos!

LAUGHING AT YOU FUNNY SNARK.jpg

I'm in! Easy peasy :D
Btw, I use Scribus for creating self-published books. I sell directly to my mailing list and various marketing methods, but haven't yet uploaded them books to Amazon.

It is really good

Thank You! ⚜

That looks interesting . I really appreciate it.

woooo. that's great splendid post friend loved it! you I keep people like you grow too fast

I appreciate

I really enjoyed that @yallapapi. Fucking dope. I'm starting right away stunner..

Totally with you on the fuck being advertiser friendly front!

To be completely honest, that's why we're here. Sure, there's potential to make money, but in all honesty, we feel as if this is probably the only platform out there where we can truly be ourselves and create the content that we want to create (without filtering our humour or creativity to appease anyone really). Our content may not be for everyone, but at least we're not sucking anyone's dick to make them like/pay us. :)

Awesome, i like it

Beep!Beep! @shadow3scalpel & listkeeper @chairborne have your six new veterans, retirees and military members on STEEM. We’ll be patrolling by to upvote your posts (because you are on the list) and we'll answer any questions you leave us. Comment by @shadowspub. This is a opt-in bot.

Mantap dan bagus sekali post kamu ya saya sangat suka sekali...
Saya adalah @badriadi83 silahkan lihat post saya jika kamu berkenan, terimakasih

There is no actual content anymore. It's just posts about how the system is fucked or ads promoting some fucking billboard company. Seriously what the fuck? Who is going to find that link outside Steemit, read it and then be like, "Wow this is so interesting, let me see what else is on here?" Nobody.

Steemit is mainly about money matters to be honest. Money Talks was indeed fully embodied! The blogging thing is just secondary. Took me around 5 months to finally realize what this platform was meant to be. As long as there are those who are willing to power-up in exchange for a daily shameless harvesting of ROI, as epitomized by legendary shitposter @haejin, the Steem economy should be fine. Hence the whitepaper gives more emphasis to the importance of investors for the survival of the blockchain than the content producers.

Also you should keep a backup of your novel-length articles, in case things went spiral out of control leading to abandonment.

Amazing, You are incredible, just browse the articles of friends

I'm not that good at writing.
I was born in 1980 and my teachers were simply shit.
They were there for the money.
I worked a shitty job ever since.
But I have 1 skill...
If musical notes were portrayed as letters I could write brilliant novels :)

I think i am with you in this. There has been a massive lose recebtly in the crypto world. Alot of people personalised the inflation of price for particular currency just to earn from it.

I will advise anyone reading this. If its not going to well with you in the crypto industry there are a lot of things you can place your arm on work hard and start earning from the first day.

You can startup you own enterprise, cook up an idea. Solve a common problem in you locality and get paid for it. This will give you a brand and you will not only earn dairly but also have a very good reputation for it. 👍#yallapapi for this post.

Ok, I may be a narcissistic fuck, but I think I will win more than once. Scratch that. I will win one time just to prove a point. Cheers.

Very intriguing. I've been working on something. Will submit when it's finished. Thanks for the inspiration!

extraordinary image expression.
I like

Me husta este concurso de gramatica. buen Post

You made me laugh :) Thank you!
Your writing is unique and Thanks again because I also had to open two times the dictionary. Lovely evening SuperNova55

Way to go!
Read just the first paragraph, thought I'd be able to go through it all but church is almost starting.

I'll be back here, back in this box.

Wao amazing contest superb you also hero dude

Oh my God, you are such an arrogant, cynical bastard!
I think we are going to get on very well 😂 @yallapapi

I think this contest will be awesome! It's good thing guys you decided to put more focus on curation. It's best for the platform to spread the rewards isn't it?

I don't know who the fuck you are, and I'm pretty sure this isn't 1500 words, but you might get a chuckle out of it.

https://steemit.com/funny/@profanereviews/ian-s-scrotum-and-the-scream-heard-round-the-lake

Or you might not. You seem pretty angry.

Either way, you got my attention and I agree with a lot of what you say. If you are looking for comedy stories, I would love to write something up for you. I don't know a fucking thing about crypto or technology, but I can usually throw a funny spin on shit.

The problem: everyone whos not a whale has to promote and everyone elae is doing the same but not many are concernes about rhe small curation and ateemit should have a tagg list to use

Excellent contribution friend, greetings from venezuela ..

Carry on

thanks for sharing your great information.love you...and i always with you

Thank you for your content.

Four out of the ten ill karmas:

(4) false speech,
(5) divisive speech,
(6) abusive speech,
(7) suggestive speech,

Perhaps the shark skin business model may also consider, profanity as catch phrases indicate a lack of creativity by exercising a buzz word that may invoke a reaction.

Then aspects of reactionary tactics may be considered for contemplation of boundaries as 'civil' in a global community.

Who has time to meditate on the four of the ten karmas concerning speech for (insert mindful profane neologism here) < neologism or a newly coined word or expression >

What would Buddha mind? WWBM? Catholics who are invested in Soros would care for this type of catch phrase for National Karmic taking stock of mindful profane concepts.

Allah of us know, you badger a bishop into a Jainism bet, perhaps in Tibet and Bless like for Jesus Christ sake, well, every Buddha knows Allah is well that Zen is swell.

Antitheses of cursing and profanity may be considered for synthesis of the thesis you were threading in this post.

I don’t get it. Is this poetry or what?

Sometimes people need to be divided and abused. Sorry Buddha

Hey I'm new and I'm trying....I definitely need an editor, though. Feel free to peruse my small-but-growing collection of writings and crush them with knowledge, I'd actually appreciate it. I don't really want to pay for bots or any of that stuff, but natural visibility seems to be challenging. I'll press on, though, because I'm hard headed.

That shit is overrated.

Yo yallapapi, are you accepting works of fiction for this little writing contest you've got going on here? Hopefully, because that's what I'm sending your way right now.. Much love man hopefully you can get some peoples content the recognition is deserves.

Finally, someone with teeth.

This #sharkschool initiative would have been perfect when I was writing about gold diggers on my blog. All the homeschooled kids on this blockchain are appalled at my view points.

If you are preparing a steemit leaflet then you are ready for passive.

Thank You! ⚜

fuck, you're a long winded son of a bitch. I usually lose interest after the first 10,000 words, but I decided to read this crap fest. How do you manage to stay on the Trending page? Most people would log out from getting a headache, or they'd drift off to sleep trying to read all of this. I have no interest in entering your contest, besides, everything I write is interesting. Have a great day! :)

Great work! Thanks for this post learned many new things. It really helped.

execelent...you have my vote... "Then show a brother some love and resteem that shit" very cleaver

This is good motivation for me to get to work on a long form post, going to let @justaboutart know about this for her new curation account teens on steem or #tos this contest should will provide incentive to their followers.

Now I understand that most people here on steemit are not getting honest votes. They just buy upvotes. I request everybody here to participate genuinely and honestly, without comments like" Oh it's great" "You are a hero" "Great post, keep it up"
Comments from your heart, even if it gets flagged. The main goal is to be honest.
Let's grow our Steemit community.
