"Dear Dawne - Getting Those BIG UPVotes: How To Get Noticed"

Season 1 - Episode 13

We Have An Experienced "Steemit Personal Mentor" To Help You Directly!

"Special Alert" @goldendawne is now a @curie curator too!

Congratulations 🍾, we are proud of you Dawne

TITLE: Getting Those BIG UPVotes: How To Get Noticed

How often have you scrolled through your feed and seen some of your followers with payouts of $20? $40? Or even more? What's your first thought?

Do you get envious? Do you open the post and read it and think... I could do this? I write and post just as well as they did. So why aren't my posts getting recognized?

Have you heard about blocktrades? Ocd? Curie? And a variety of other big Upvote accounts on steemit's platform?

Thing to remember when making your post to get the best possible chance of being recognized:

  • Spell check, spell check and spell check again- simple errors can cause a post to be dismissed.
  • SOURCE your images- great free image websites are pexels and pixabay
  • Formatting- we've discussed this in the last few weeks so make sure to read those posts and see all the links provided. * Nothing worse than having your post that you spent hours putting together being overlooked because your images aren't centered, you aren't bolding the sub-titles or for some other reason.
  • Share a unique topic. Don't just post a recipe with a picture. Tell a story. How did this recipe come about? Is it a family tradition? Do you always cook or bake it for Christmas dinner? Share personal experiences.
  • Look at curie, ocd, muxxybot and other curation pages. See what kind of posts they are promoting. Read the posts, look at the images. Get a good feel for what is considered good, very good and outstanding. Make sure to follow the pages as well and keep up to date on any changes they have.
  • Before you hit “POST” of your article, read it one last time. BUT read it aloud, not silently. I know from experience that if you read word for word aloud, you will hear any syntax issues with your post. This will prevent you from having to edit; and wasting your power.

Here is the most recent curie showcase post. Take a look at the posts featured.

Here is ocd's daily post. Study these posts too.

Make sure to follow as many curation pages that you can. This will give you a feel for what they are looking for.

It An Open Forum So Ask "Dawne" Anything! (even how to get curied too)

Newbie Nickels (Available to EVERYONE for TODAY ONLY, Newbies only after that)

Anyone can play. Anyone can join. You don't have to be a newbie, to win this Newbie Nickel.

First, a Newbie Nickel is something that we at the #newbieresteemday initiative use to incentivize the newbies to play games or enter contests. Its a $0.05 upvote on their entry in the game/contest and it guarantees them something for making an effort. For some newbies this $0.05 is more than they can make on many posts, so it is indeed a way to earn "something" and to learn/engage at the same time.

How To Get Your Newbie Nickel TODAY ONLY On This Post

#1 Leave a comment to Dawne on this post. It must be a question directed at her asking for her help, or it must be a relevant observation to her topic of the day.
#2 If you leave a comment and Dawne responds, you can earn a "bonus" Newbie Nickel for a relevant additional comment to her. Note: that is (2) Newbie Nickels just by engaging Dawne and following up respectfully with her replies!
#3 Resteem this post and tell me about it in the comment section and I will give you a 1 Newbie Nickel for that! You must leave a comment to me (@davemccoy) so that @goldendawne only focuses on her discussions.

Got it? You can earn up to (3) Newbie Nickels today just by engaging in thoughtful and engaging dialogue!

Hi @goldendawne, congratulations on being curie curator! You're an awesome addition to this prestigious curation group :)

My question would be about time management.
How do you manage to curate, post , comment and engage in chat channels (and any other Steemit activities)? Also considering we have our real life work or commitments (let's say at least 8 hours has to be spent for this). Any tips from you will be very helpful. Thank you! :)

Hello @wanderlass....
Well, first off I am fortunate enough to be a stay-at-home wife. I have more time than I know what to do with most days. All the kids are on their own with their own lives and families; so all I have in my home i s my husband and our chocolate lab. For members that have part or full-time jobs and careers, being on steemit more than a few hours a day is almost impossible; especially of they want to sleep and have a speck of a life.

I have always been an OCD personality, organized beyond belief and set personal deadlines, goals and am my own worst critic. I have a set schedule for DIscord and steemit. I space it out over the day, have breaks to clear my head and do household and gardening chores as well as set limits before frustration sets in. It's all about balance for me.

It also helps that my husband works a minimum of 10 hours, 6 days week but currently he's on 12 hours, 7 days indefinitely... again... sigh- So I spend my time wisely and AM A HUGE proponent of chore lists and to-do lists. It keeps me on track. When I worked for a newspaper as a staff writer and reporter deadlines were daily life and I implemented that into my regular life.

·
·

Awesome you are so organized! It's no wonder you are on track here in Steemit. You're everywhere and been very active.

I would like to do what you said and have a schedule and to-do list even here in Steemit. I work full time and it's been a challenge as there are more responsibilities that one can take as we grow here. And I think those breaks in between is needed to keep my sanity lol. Thank you very much for sharing your tips and advice!

PS. You and your husband and a choco lab sounds like the most romantic thing <3

You got a 33.33% upvote from @payforplay! Please consider delegating steem power to @payforplay. We are currently sharing 100% of our profits with our delegators. That's correct, 100%! It doesn't get better than that. It is essentially running your own bid bot without doing any of the work. Steem power can be delegated here: https://steembottracker.com/delegation.html

Thanks @unleashpower! Hope we all become whales. But first, I need to become a minnow :D

You are on your way ... just keep your head down and spirits up @wanderlass :)

@goldendawne I do see you all over the Steem blockchain and everywhere I do see your name pop up, everybody only has goodthings to say about you!
So, lets see if you can help me with the following problem I am facing.
I do always find it difficult to add images or pictures to my posts. I have troubles with alining them andwith resizing them! Any ideas how this can be done correctly? I did some articles about it but they are rather old and not all tips work anymore.
Thx in advance!
Peter

·

First thank you for the kind words! Very appreciated and nice to know I am being visible to so many steemians!

OK, onto our dilemma...

The BEST post I have found, which is still applicable today is this one. It shows how to resize, how to center, align image to the left and right, etc. While I usually just center my images, I have done a few posts where my images have been aligned right or left. In the post I linked to above, she actually has a code that you can scroll and copy/paste and just insert you image where it needs to go.

But when I have to resize an image that I have on my phone, I usually do it right on my phone in the edit section. Easier, because I know how to do it and I am NOT literate on such things and will always seek the easiest route.

Thx @davemccoy!
Everyday not making friend on the Steem blockchain or nor interacting with the ones we already made is just a lost day!
I did notice her name around on so many places, that it would be stupid not to start a conversation with here. All the good things which are written about here and true!
The response I did get from here, combined with the reply of @ladyluck, is just a gold mine of information!

I agree.. I hate to miss a day... there are many productive things to do and so little time, but as long as we move forward I feel my time is always spent well! :)

thank you @arcange for helping us to figure that out... I hope everyone reads your message!

I need to work on my Blogs and gain an understanding of when and where to use the different text styles. Not a question, Just something I need to get back to, More writing it so I will do it

·

It's all a learn as you go experience. Once you start using the text styles, bold the text, centering versus paragraphs you will be so happy and amazed at how much more presentable your posts will look.

If you ever have a question, feel free to post here and tag my name. I'll get a notification and stop over. Good luck!!

Always nice to see you here @jan23com! I like how you work with @goldendawne! Here's your newbie nickel courtesy of @danielsaori!

Thank you, Getting better with my blogs well the appearance, Still thinking about a few things, But I will get there, help is there if you are brave enough to ask for it :)
I will be using this learning curve to write my own blog on how to edit a blog once I figure out a few more things. Wondering could I export images from Autocad to be used as separators too. Lot's going on in the head, But things are making a bit more sense.

·
·
·

NEVER hesitate to ask a question. If you want you can always find me on Discord too to ask questions personally/privately, or in the Discord group.

Fantastic @goldendawne. Great to see you with @curie. I've decided to dedicate one day a week to service like @quarator. Starting tomorrow. You guys simply motivate me!

·

Awesome @mistermercury! And if it helps, you motivate me too! ;)

I can't wait until you really get going, I think you are going to be great here :D

Here's your newbie nickel courtesy of the terrific @danielsaori

How did it go? I spoke with you daughter btw, she's impressive!

·
·
·
·

Yeah, @littlescribe takes after her....mom! First day was good. Had several people I helped point in the right direction as best I could. But planning on doing something more formal through @qurator or @newbieresteemday. I want to join in and be able to bring others with me.

wow .. very good information when I read to embrace my creativity as a steemit beginner.
Please help @devamccoy

·

I would be happy to help you @bamsbrayen! But you should ask @goldendawne to help you before you ask me... She has been here longer and is my mentor... So don't be shy and ask her anything... Just either tag her like you did me above or reply to any of her replies here and she will see it... Go ahead, she will help.. She might even look at your posts or blog ;)

And on top of that I can give you some newbie nickels if you do... :)
