My personal experience with this platform has been very positive. I managed to write 3 long articles in two weeks. Those three posts alone earned me 58.65$ or 240 STEEM (+19.1$ for the curators). Keep in mind I did not use bid bots or any other type of tools. All three articles were upvoted by @travelfeed, @jpphotography, @for91days, and other curators. They were also noticed by @curie, @blocktrades, @ocd, @c-cubed, @mariusfebruary, @tombstone, and other Steemit legends. Is it worth to use Travelfeed.io? Decide for yourself.
WINNER OF THE TRAVEL WRITING CONTEST NO.1
The total Prize Pool of "T.W. Contest No. 1" was 120 STEEM. 100 STEEM for the winner and 1 STEEM each for 2nd-21st. It is impossible to express how hard it was to choose the best travel story. All articles were unique and incredibly difficult to compare. However, I reached my final decision and it is time to announce the winner. And the winner is...
The Khmerican Family Abroad | #2 - The Great Ecuador Exodus Pt. 1! by @justinparke! 100 STEEM! Read">Read
It is a stunning story about one American guy and his Cambodian family trying to find their place under the sun. Justin doesn't like headers (H1, H2, etc.), he writes in kilometer-long paragraphs, he is a great photographer, but his camera is not as good as its owner and yet, there is something magical here...
Justin's story has the ability to remind the reader what being a traveler truly means. It means that sometimes your day might consist of 99% pain and only 1% joy, but at the end of the day that 1% pays off! Happiness lies in details and a little bit of patience and trust in invisible forces of the universe help those who do not give up!
My wife and kids are Cambodian citizens, and they are now all too accustomed to devastating news in the form of visa denials and being prohibited from boarding flights. These problems generally have something to do with their Cambodian citizenship, either directly or indirectly, no matter how politically correct and convoluted the words are delivered to us at the moment[...]
Dear Justin, I would like to tell you that you and your beautiful family are always welcome to visit us here in #Lithuania. I am extremely happy that such an amazing person like you decided to join this contest and I hope it is not the last time. As I have already mentioned before, you are the winner of 100 Steem and by the time you read this, it should already be in your wallet. Thank you for being with us!
By the way, if you would like me to share a few thoughts about making some improvements in order to make your articles more profitable and more popular on @travelfeed I would be more than happy to help. If you would like to discuss some options just contact me on Discord or Facebook! I truly believe that your stories have the potential to become very popular in this cohesive community!

I think the word "Dervish" has a Persian origin with references to "door" and in our tradition and folklore it literally means a person who walks from door to door. So is the mission of the barbarian dervishes - to drive away evil from every house, in order to give way to good and light. Some people believe the dervishes have supernatural abilities and can perform miracles. All this is folklore, of course! But who knows...
