Changing my posting and voting behavior a bit

in steempress •  9 days ago  (edited)

Thanks, @steempress and my other autovoters, for voting my daily shitposts for so long, I think I’m gonna take a break from daily shitposting routine.

By take I mean I probably won’t “force” myself to post daily if there’s nothing to post that day. (maybe force isnt a right word, as I can shitpost quite quickly, I don’t feel much pressure). But as I said, I won’t randomly throw a song or throw some old pictures here anymore.

Steem’s voting power and cap actually doesn’t make much sense in my opinion, like @heimindanger wrote in one of his recent posts. Why should we vote 10 times per day any way? What if we suddenly have a inspiration to write a few posts, then should we still wait a few day to posts one another, a bit silly, no? What if someone used to write awesome stuff remained unnoticed by whales, when whales finally take a look at the page, that author started shitposting, then does the past hardwork count or not?

Steem still has a lot of problem, today I won’t go too deep in this issue, but seems like we’ve solved some bidbot problems, not bad at least.

I might appear talkative (maybe?) on steem in social media. I don’t really talk much in real life, sometimes I feel some days only in my vlogs I talk, haha.

Or maybe for someone who loves selfie and sharing stuff, I will still post daily here lol, I don’t really know.

But on my non-travel, non-festival days, my life is also a bit boring. So posting life seems a bit meaningless on #newsteem.

I’d love to make some weekly music curation posts for some nice songs I discovered throughout the week.

I’m planning a long trip again, I’m excited. This time I’d like to keep my itinerary a secret before I post it, and share it instantly. More interesting this way!

As for voting habit, I have a “long ongoing circle” probably just like anyone that’s been long here. I don’t know how to break the circle. Always feel if someone vote for me, I have to vote back in return haha. That’s how other social media works too right? On facebook, instagram I also vote for vote a lot! Probably gonna be a bit difficult for me. I’ll adjust some autovote list and try manual curate more.

Probably autovote again or follow some reputable curation trails when I’m travelling lol.

I can feel you. I stopped posting a month ago.
Delegated all my steem and stop voting. All followers disappeared in a week. It was not easy but I got my life back. I always appreciated your support, tho.
Good luck with your new strategy.

Thanks. I thought you just moved to scot haha. Will you come back any time?

When we had the hf drama, I didn’t post and voted for a day. I actually felt I had more time and enjoy the tv shows I’ve been meaning to watch

so true hahah

Would be nice to know about your boring days as well. And I applaud your posting behaviour change, if you manage to pull it off, of course.

Great to see more steemians doing manual curation. If there is only one objective for HF21/22 or #newsteem, it got to be to increase the level of manual curation

Sounds like a healthy decision and I've seen more Steemians make a similar one :-) It can only mean there's better content going to be published and more fun to be had :D Sooo #NewSteem :D

Give it a try on 5 manual post curate per day I guess... That's a good start 😉

It's something I brought up sometime ago is people or businesses can't all be expected to manually curate, I don't believe every business would be interested in that part of Steem, at the end of the day it should be the individuals choice.

Interesting thoughts, I believe maybe some investors won't have time to manually curate indeed. I wonder if there's any alternative to it, other than curation trails.
