SoS Daily News : news about the State of Steem @ 12 March 2019

in steem •  13 days ago

SoS Daily News reaches 100.

Pennsif's Three for Thursday continues.

Crypto Voucher adds STEEM.

Real time battle notifications arrive for DrugWars.

SoS Daily News reaches 100 editions

The SoS Daily News has now been published every day since it launched on 3 December 2018.

It was initially set up to run alongside and help inform the debate of the State of Steem Forums that began 10 days later.

The SoS Daily News was originally conceived just to last for the duration of the Forums. But the service took on a life of its own and continued after the Forums ended last month.

Now with edition 100 it seems an opportune time to review.

Researching and compiling SoS Daily News takes over 4 hours each day. It is not a problem to continue assuming there is continued demand and interest.

Comments are welcome on the matter... Should SoS Daily News continue as it is? Should it continue in a more condensed form? Or should it end?

Congratulations @pennsif, the SoS should continue to be very helpful for all of us.

Definitely keep it going, I've just followed! Having the news separated out into different sections, like all the Steemit Inc. posts in one place, is very helpful.


Thank you for hopping onboard. And thank you for the encouragement.

Congratulations on 100! These posts are an essential part of my feed to see what's happening. Thanks

Thanks Steve. I am very glad if people find it useful.

Happy 100 for sure. I read these regularly. A great resource for the community.

Thank you for the encouragement John.

Happy 100. It seems like you are a hard work fox on steem!

Posted using Partiko Android


Thank you. I like to keep busy 😃

Congrats for the 100th SoS Daily News!

4+ hours is a lot of time and only you can judge if you can keep it up or not. From my side I really appreciate them and the work you put in for compiling them daily!


Thank you. It is very encouraging to hear from people that are finding the posts useful.

I find these posts very useful and regularly see updates in them that I would have missed otherwise. Thank you for this great service you are providing to the community!

Making the posts in a more condensed form would be totally fine with me. Especially if it reduces the amount of time you put into them. :)


Thank you for your feedback. If I condense the posts it would mean reducing some of the areas I cover. I hope to avoid that if possible.

SoS is great the way it is. Has helped us find our way often enough. Great work @pennsif Maybe part of the compilation could be automated so you have less work, such as collecting news from different sources. Anybody an idea on that?

Thank you.

I don't think there would be any scope for automation really as it is the manual curation that is vital to select the most important posts. I usually scan and read through 300 - 400 posts a day to find the ones I include.

I really appreciate these posts and look at them a few times a week, click links to read, and tweet them sometimes. I don't have time to seek this out otherwise.

That is a hell of a lot of effort and time though. I hope you will keep them as-is and I can understand if you shorten or stop.


I am glad you find them useful.

They do take a lot of time - but it is very interesting work.

These daily updates are key for me given how busy I have been offchain this year so it is my go to post to see what important information I may have missed during the day! Congrats and thanks!
