The Daily Sneak 14 January 2020

in #curationlast year

Welcome to The Daily Sneak!!!

We reward quality content, AND content curators! Come for the crypto, stay for the community!

You can win up to 10 SBI per accepted submission for guest curating The Daily Sneak. Submission requirements are published at the bottom of each edition of The Daily Sneak.

This ongoing curation contest is no resteem, no upvote, no follow required.

Today's curation is provided by recently new guest curator, @freedomring. This is his third guest curation, and we are happy to have him back!

When it comes to me being on Steem, I am just a little fish in a big ocean. I do not post much but I want to help the other small fish on Steem. Doing what I can help them build their accounts and in the end it is a good thing to do. I like to read the posts and to help channels be seen in this vast ocean of larger fish and whales.

The Sneaked Selections

How has Steem impacted my life: learning, growth, evolution and friendship.

@marybellrg shares her story of how she came to Steem. Learning technology and the common sites like Facebook and Twitter was not working for her; she began to look for more and found Steem. She created an account and started posting and building relationships that will help her grow here.

Repotting the Spider Plant - January 9, 2020 @goldenoakfarm

@goldenoakfarm is showing how to prune the roots of a root bound plant. She then puts it back in the pot and gives some ideas that will help you be successful in growing indoor plants.

Our Caribbean Getaway - St. Thomas (USVI) 2020

This couple lives in Minnesota, but they are not into winter sports. So they go to the island of St. Thomas, in the Caribbean, for the winter. They have to slow down and relax because time is different on the island: No hustle and bustle like in the U.S. They talk about meeting new people and always exploring.


Great selections and commentary from @freedomring again! Stop by these articles and share your feedback or related experiences. For submitting these excellent articles and commentary, @freedomring wins 30 SBI.

Each of these highlighted articles receives full upvotes and resteems from @thedailysneak, along with beneficiary rewards from this post. Our featured writers sometimes earn more from their beneficiary rewards on this post than from their post itself! In addition, @thedailysneak sponsors featured writers for Steem Basic Income!

Submission Requirements

On to the submission requirements for The Daily Sneak:

  1. You can choose from 2 to 5 articles for your entry. Submissions with only one selected article will be ignored.
  2. All articles chosen for curation need to have been published within the last 5 days before your entry. It may take time for me to publish your curation, and curated articles need to be within the reward window when your submission is published.
  3. You cannot submit your own post for curation. Selections from nsfw will not be accepted. We also check for plagiarism and only highlight original content.
  4. Selected posts should have less than $50 in total rewards and have not previously been curated by The Daily Sneak.
  5. We try to spread the love around, so while selections from authors that have been highlighted before are welcome, they might not be included if the author's last inclusion was recent. Similarly, if you include two articles from the same author in one submission, we will typically highlight only one of the two.
  6. Be sure to include your personal bio for me to introduce you to readers, and make sure that each selection has commentary. This can be just a few sentences about why you think the selection is worth our attention, or what is great about it - something that will make people want to click through the headline and check out the actual article. English is preferred, but other languages will be considered as long as English translation is included.
  7. Please use this web form to submit your entry.
  8. Including image links to the source article is not required (and we prefer to leave some mystery if photography is highlighted and the article has only one photo.) However, we like to include images in The Daily Sneak, and not including any image links may decrease the likelihood of your submissions being published.

If you include more than 2 articles in your submission and not all are approved for publication, your submission may still be published into an edition of The Daily Sneak, as long as at least 2 articles are approved. This could happen for several different reasons. If you are unsure why an article was cut, please review the submission guidelines again. If you are still unsure, feel free to ask politely why it was cut.

Submission Reward

A brief biography of each guest curator will be included in the edition that uses their submission. In addition, each guest curator will receive 10 SBI for each article from their submission that is highlighted in The Daily Sneak. That's up to 50 SBI for each accepted submission!

With Steem Basic Income now upvoting comments for members that have not posted within the last 7 days, and SBI having proven to be a great value proposition, we chose to rewards curators with SBI. This will help The Daily Sneak continue in its mission to discover and reward quality content creators and curators.

This sounds worthwhile! Since I'm out there curating I'll keep an eye out!

Thanks for your support!
