What to Consider when posting an article on SocialFi Platforms under Hive Network?

After you're done writing your article you might want to consider understanding the following before posting it on your chosen platform.

Community

The First thing you need to consider is the community where you would post your article.

When you don't have enough followers yet, you need to be dependent on communities. Community is one of the main factors for your article's visibility.

The reason is, when you write in a community, almost all subscribers of that community have the same interest as you. So when you write an article related to the description of the community, many subscribers of that community will have an interest in reading your post.

Note:
Don't post articles that are irrelevant to the community that you are posting or your post might get muted or downvoted.

Title

Always pick a catchy title, one that grabs attention and is easy to understand. Don't use Titles that are not related to your post just to acquire readers. Also, don't use words that are hard to understand

Content

Having a content is not enough, you should also know how to make your content more enjoyable to read. You can do this by adding free-to-use images that you can get from unsplash.com or pixabay.com .
Don't forget to include the source at the bottom of every image that you will use to avoid problems.

You can also stylize your content by formatting your text. A blog full of blocks of words is not enjoyable to read. Add some style to your content. Make some fonts bold, Italic or 𝖉𝖎𝖋𝖋𝖊𝖗𝖊𝖓𝖙.

Tags

Tags are very important when posting your article, most curators search for good articles to curate by searching for specific hashtags.

Never use irrelevant hashtags to your post just to get an upvote

Some tokens have a hashtag that rewards a blog that uses those hashtags.
The maximum number of hashtag that you can use is 10. The first hashtag cannot be changed after posting.

Example

If you are writing a Splinterlands article and you used the hashtag #splinterlands or #spt your article will be rewarded with $SPT tokens.

Cover Image

make sure that your cover photo is in the right dimension so it will display properly. the right dimension for the cover image is 16"L X 9" H. To create an appealing Cover Image, use canva.com
