1. What's new and important?
!!! Your Action Requested !!!
- @remlaps is sponsoring a contest for two Facebook ads during the month of August. If you think an article should appear on Facebook as the face of Steemit's classical music community, please place a comment here - Visibility contest!!! Give me your best #classical-music post!.
- Even if you don't have a nomination to submit, please visit the post regularly to vote on other peoples' submissions. Only about 3 days remain for new nominations.
We have created a steemauto curation trail. Please follow it to help support the authors in our community with your voting power. Two of our curation accounts, @cub1 and @remlaps1, are voting 30 minutes after @classical-music so you can front-run them on this list for a few extra curation rewards while also supporting the #classical-music community.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the content creators who are helping #classical-music related posting to grow on steemit.
We would also like to express our gratitude to our Facebook audience for sharing and "Liking" our posts, which will help raise Steemit awareness among the classical music community on Facebook.
2. Thank you to our delegators
We spend a good number of hours each week voting to support quality authors in the classical music topic area. That support is made possible by steem power delegations from @alexworld, @cmp2020, @remlaps, and the @classical.music sister account. We welcome additional delegations!
3. Roundup issue #28
In the time since our last roundup post, we have shared 7 posts from the categories that we monitor on the Steemit's Best Classical Music Facebook page.
Here are the articles that we shared on Facebook.
|Author||Title||Pay-out Date||Liquid Reward Share||Post Image|
|@dannychae||Which one is your favorite Ave Maria?||n/a||1 / 6|
|@senzenfrenz||Steemit Openmic Week 93 - Variations on a baroque theme (original music @ senzenfrenz)||n/a||1 / 6|
|@rgkmb-unofficial||Analysis of Rustin High School's Alma Mater (Composed by Our Very Own Samuel Barber)||n/a||1 / 6|
|@danielmonteso||iTalente Round 6 Sonatina, (Evocación) J.D. Gómez - E.G.A.R||n/a||1 / 6|
|@heatherthebard||Pitchperfect week 18: “Horse’s Bransle” (Renaissance mandolin)||n/a||1 / 6|
|@tin-tin||Taking a Step into the World of Baroque Music: An informal analysis of “Surely He hath borne our griefs” chorus from Handel’s Messiah||n/a||1 / 6|
|@cmp2020||Assurance of Grace, Original Composition, Final 2018 Performance at the Youth Cabaret on May 6th||n/a||declined|
As with our previous roundup posts, each of these authors will receive a proportional share of this roundup post's liquid author rewards (Steem and SBD, not SteemPower).
note: Although we don't currently envision changing this practice, this reward sharing distribution is subject to change without notice, at our sole discretion.
4. What is this initiative?
To introduce the wider community to steemit.com, we launched the facebook page, Steemit's Best Classical Music in April 2017, and we are monitoring a number of classical music related categories (and others) on steemit. We share the best posts that we find about classical music on the facebook page.
The point of this is to raise steemit awareness and visibility among people on facebook who share an interest in classical music. Additionally, to bring further attention to the best articles and authors that we find, in June of 2017 we began sharing periodic roundup articles here on steemit.
5. Sharing guidelines
Standards for sharing are subjective, but here are some guidelines to show the kinds of the things that we look for:
- Original steem blockchain content
- Attractive formatting
- Well written grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.
- Roughly 500 to 2,000 words in length
- English language text (Sorry, that's the only language we know.)
- Supplementary video embeds from other platforms - such as youtube - are encouraged when accompanied by original steem block chain content.
- Word length expectations will be relaxed for videos of original performances or compositions by the steemit author.
- Sharing of articles by a single author will be limited to one or two per week.
- If the "heart of the post" is made up of audio or video content, it must be accessible by embedded media in the post on steemit.com.
6. How you can help.
This initiative is intended to promote steemit, and to strengthen the classical music ecosystem here, so if you share these goals we would appreciate your support! Here are some ways you can help:
- Follow our steemauto curation trail.
- Contribute your own original content about classical music to the steem block chain. Use the "classical-music" hashtag or category.
- If you have a facebook account, "Like" the Steemit's Best Classical Music Facebook page, and adjust the settings to see all of our posts.
- Reshare articles from our facebook page with your facebook friends.
- Resteem our roundup articles.
- Use your upvotes to support the authors of articles that we find and share.
- Let us know if there are any articles that we have overlooked.
- Delegate steempower to the @classical-music account to give weight to our votes for authors of classical content.
- This is a user driven initiative with no whale support, and we're making it up as we go, so we enthusiastically welcome your ideas.
