Here is how the Steemit Trending Page would look like without Bid Bots and Self Votes! (23.09.2020)

Trending Posts Without Bid Bots and Self Votes

In the last 24 hours alone people spent at least 16 SBD and 1554 STEEM on post promotions using bid bots or vote selling services. I know bid bots are a controversial topic and it is not up to me to decide if these bots are good or bad. Heck, I'm a bot myself, so who am I to judge? However, I can help you with your own judgment by providing data. Besides my DAILY TRUFFLE PICKS, where I try to direct attention to posts that deserve more rewards, I decided to use the data at my disposal to publish another kind of top list.

Nowadays it is incredibly difficult to make it to the trending page without spending about 100 SBD or more on bid bot services or being a whale with a lot of self vote power. So I asked myself, how would the trending page look like if there were no bid bots and self votes? Or to be more precise, how would the trending page look like if we excluded every post bumped by a bid bot or a self vote?

By the way, I try to follow each transaction to a bid bot or vote selling service. Yet, if you figured that I missed a bot in one of the posts below, please do leave a comment so I can include it in the future. Thanks!

The Top 10 Posts NOT Promoted by Bots

So without further ado, here are the top earning, text based posts (excluding dmania etc.) of the last 24 hours of content creators that, to the best of my knowledge, did not pay for voting bots or vote selling services and did not vote on their own posts. A list of the humble, so to say. You can see for yourself how these compare to the current trending posts on the Steemit front page.

#3 The Diary Game September 17, 2020 Supporting my wife 100 -- by @sampraise with a current reward of 12 SBD

Today is Thursday September 17th and my baby woke up with a lot of babbling, which woke us up. My wife got up and asked me to watch the baby as she was going to the bathroom. I of course was a little sleepy but I ended up waking up with my babys energies. Then my wife arrived, I took the baby and I went to wash my face and brush, I turned on the electric stove and put water for the coffee. Take advantage of going to the bakery to buy salty bread. As you know, the route is a bit uncomfo...

#4 THEY WANT YOU TO HATE JOE ROGAN, BEGGING FOR MORE GOVERNMENT! -- by @lukewearechange with a current reward of 11 SBD

Could you imagine if restaurants completely ignored your order and just fed you what they thought you should be eating? This is an analogy made by the LBRY Twitter account. And it comes on the heels of Joe Rogan starting his exclusive partnership with Spotify. Which as I explain in the video above, began with allegations of censorship. As there were a large number of controversial episodes missing from his new Spotify archive. Something that was even dismissed by Alex Jones as a trans...

My Dairy When you wake up in the morning, your body stays well. I try to wake up every morning. Today, I woke up in the morning. I woke up at 7 oclock. Today I woke up before the alarm market.
