OCD Sportstalk Incubation Curation Update
Hello everyone and welcome to another Sportstalk OCD Curation Update where we look back at the the previous week to see how the tribe is growing. A healthy tribe is an active tribe through quality of posts and engagement. Having interesting different and varied content is that important which we are currently lacking. There is not enough varied original content so we need new users which will bring what is missing.
Plus 36 new subscribers this week which is on par with what tribes around us on the OCD incubation list are achieving. I find it strange that Hive in general had a massive growth period last month and now it has seemingly cooled down.
This week we had 19 posts submitted for the extra curation with 3 being rejected for various reasons. If you are lucky enough to receive an OCD vote there is a limit of 2 per week in order to make the support open and fair for everyone.
Original content will always be rewarded and stand out compared to a re spun news story. This should be obvious yet the sportstalk tribe is full of articles which can be found in all the media. I catch up my sports news daily so know what is original and what isn't and honestly don't even read the spun articles anymore. If that is what you do then I suggest changing and adding your own input instead of spamming with useless news everyone already knows and has read elsewhere.
Sometimes you wonder why you put effort into posts when deep down you know only a handful read what you have written. A 3 or 4 minute read with an average of just over a minute viewing tells you that maybe only a few are learning and paying attention.
It is not surprising we are still having issues with Getty images being used and spamming news articles we have read elsewhere multiple times boring the sports and Hive community to death.
Choosing the right topic makes a huge difference as if we take @wolfgangsport as a prime example of this. @wolfgangsport is relatively new on Hive yet is earning decent rewards through the original work he produces. Not only are his posts original, but has kept quality and consistency which means time and effort with plenty of thought going into every article. This is how you grow and using spun news articles is never going to make you stand out and the total opposite to what @wolfgangsport is doing.
If you want to stand out and make a name for yourself there is no better time than now as when Hive and Sportstalk take off with all the other tribes many will be left behind with no support. I have seen this happen before and it will happen again as support is never guaranteed.
I have run out of any ideas for a new sporting topic and if anyone has any suggestions we can use in April it would be appreciated. Just leave a comment and for the best suggestions they will receive a bonus of 100 000 sport tokens. Who doesn't like free money and wonder how many will read this far.
Thanks once again to @ocd for their continued support as it is much appreciated. If you have some hive you would like to delegate please consider @ocdb as they do so much for the communities on Hive. For this you would receive a payout everyday in Hive. Until next week stay busy and engage as much as possible.
