RE: Is There Any Room For Short Content On Steemit?
Can confirm short content can take a long time, at least from my experience as well. Sometimes I wonder if curation is more about knowing about an account, or just solely focused on the content. Because as the content becomes shorter, it becomes more difficult for content curators to determine whether or not they should vote, or not.
In my case, I think know what you're about from our interactions back when you came onboard, hence I don't have any problems since I trust you're being genuine. Comparatively, I think your long-form stuff is way better. Plus, Steemit's interface is pretty lousy for shortform because I have to click-through to view the short post in its entirety, so the pay off for doing that better be out of this world!
But point being made, we can certainly write a million words of the best essay ever, but will others get the point or even get any value out of it? I think 100-200 words might be a good middle ground for something like Steemit as short content, until a twitter like interface comes along. At the moment I'm trying low VP on the microblog, resteem on my main, and see how well it's received.
Edit: replying to another one of your comments: i think your shortform is better than most on here, although i tend not to come across many at all.
