Hi everyone. It's been some time since I last published a Ramble. Life tends to get in the way. After three weeks of on and off labour my granddaughter will be born on Sunday, if she doesn't get her act together sooner. Her mom has been a real trooper through all of this but it's been a busy and stressful time for all of us. I must say, while my Steem posts have suffered, it has been nice to spend so much time with my grandsons.
I don't know if it's because it's summer time or the price of Steem but people in general aren't posting as often. I'm glad to see that the needlework community is growing and posting regularly.
I'm not sure if many of you are aware of the show I've been doing with @shadowspub called "Curation Corner" in the Steemit Ramble Discord on Tuesdays @2pm est. The show is about Manual curation, which is people seeking out quality posts and sharing them with others. This plays an important part in bringing to light good content creators who are often overlooked in the sea of posts on the platform. What does it take to produce a post which will get the attention of the curators? Myself, @artemisnorth, and @shadowspub, along with our guests, discuss posts we have currently curated and what factors in the post contributed to them getting noticed.
Even during my "break" I've been keeping up with posts and promoting our community when ever I get the chance. If you'd like to know how to polish your posts and understand what catches our eye then don't miss our show. If you aren't on Discord, follow @ramblingradio on dLive to watch the live stream..
Onward to today’s rambling

Join the Fiberartists Curation Trail
If you’d like to be part of supporting the posts that I curate, you can join my curation trail. What that means is if you are part of the trail, when I vote on a quality post, your votes will automatically follow me. The trail name is Fiberartists.
You’ll need to sign up at SteemAuto and I’d recommend you use SteemConnect when asked to give voting rights. That makes sure your keys are safe. Once registered, the link to the curation trail is right here. You can set the percentage of vote you wish to use in the settings once you join the trail.
