So a little more than a week ago I decided to do a Curation Contest. My goal was to help and encourage LeoFinance authors with 100% votes from my wee little account of (5,000LP)
That made the contest great! I was able to vote the winners 2 Leo per post and I felt that was a great amount to be meaningful enough to them.
While it didn't really matter to me what kind of accounts were the "Actual Winners" I was hoping they would be representative of the community at large and I think they were.
I learned that we have some great authors here and a great community. People are willing to work hard and others are willing to reward them. But we have a long way to go because I also learned that curating is hard.
I was very focused on keeping my voting power as high as possible so I could give ten 100% votes each day. I had to let a lot of great content go unrewarded as I saved my voting power.
I realized that we have a lot of Leo Power left on the table every day and I don't know why. If you want to protect your earnings and/or investment in Leofinance then you have to curate at or authors will abandon the platform. It is really that simple.
In closing I learned that @onealfa.leo is an awesome guy. He delegated to me and gave me the power that I have been yearning for. I was given the chance to be a Whale for a week and give out the money and now I know what it is like.
It is a tremendous responsibility and the whales need our help. They cannot do this forever and we all want to earn for posting. It is up to those of us with just a little bit of Leo to make sure we vote on the newer authors trying to find their voices here on the platform.
If we do not we will fail, If we do we will be sustainable. So make sure you vote at least 10 times a day. Do not worry about the content because honestly it doesn't matter yet. Once we reach critical mass then it will be of some concern. At the very least just vote the newest posts and don't worry how good it is. We all have to start somewhere.
I will be doing another contest soon. Thanks to everyone who participated. It was fun!
