O.C.D. Sharing is Caring Initiative

Hello Everyone!

If you were not aware, in the past few weeks O.C.D has been curating Steem content that gets shared on Reddit, be it on the designated sticky post in our subreddit /r/steemit or out in the wild when it gets shared in subreddits related to the content steemians make.

We have seen success in this initiative in the form of increased activity on both our subreddit and of Steem content being shared on Reddit and with that in mind we would like to expand our Reddit-Steem activity to drive even more traffic from Reddit into Steem and hopefully convert redditors into Steemians and increase the traffic and ad revenue steemit is currently getting!

If you want to know how we curate Steemians that share their content on reddit right now, check out this post for a short set of instructions. We are going to keep curating steemians that share their posts in our sticky and those that share their own content on subreddits related to their created content. We encourage this a lot more than sharing it in our sticky if you believe your content can fit on a subreddit where it can be seen openly by a lot of people!

How will this new initiative work?

For starters, did you know that Steemit posts have a share button? Yes? No? Well they are right there below every post that gets shared here on Steemit and we want you to use them more often! And we will reward you for doing so, especially the Reddit one which is the one we can actually keep track of... but you should share Steem posts everywhere! Your posts and other people's posts as well!

How to Earn Rewards for Sharing Posts?

The presime is pretty simple, when you find Original content on Steem you really like, use the share button and share it on Reddit then come to our weekly thread, starting today on this post and share with us the link of the post you shared on Reddit right here in the comments section(The Steemit link to the post, not the reddit one). Both the original author of the post and the sharer will be rewarded. The Author will get a shot at being curated by OCD and you, the sharer will recieve a slice of this post rewards in liquid form after the payout happens!

Where to Share Steem posts on Reddit?

If you are not familiar with Reddit, it works like the new steem-engine tribes that are being created here around Steem except in a more centralized way in the form of subreddits, subreddits are communities dedicated to conversation and content sharing of a plethora of topics...

A lot of these subreddits get a lot of views daily and if used properly they can be levareged in favor of Steem by attracting new users and traffic to our platform and by just getting everyone to know that we still exists and that we are stronger than ever!

Here's a list of popular subreddits that are pretty popular and good picks to share content to but keep in mind that there are thousands of subreddits where you can share and help steem thrive as well, without further ado, here's the list:

List of Subreddits


Last year when we started to revive the Steemit subreddit we had a total of 1.7% traffic coming from there into Steem.

And now that we have become acostumed to moderating and interacting over there to use that subreddit as an embassy of Steem to Reddit at large and especially since we started curating again 2 months ago in our sticky we have seen a nice increase of Reddit traffic to Steem.

As you can see our traffic coming from reddit now sits at 5.10% and we would like to see this number increase with the help of you guys. We believe that by doing this, everyone can win! Steem gets more exposure and you and your favorite authors will get rewarded as well!

Just wanna mention that any front-end works, so share from whichever one you like once you're familiar enough with reddit and share the content in the somewhat appropriate subreddits. :)

Is it possible to share posts in spanish or it will be worthless?
By the way: Nice increase in % and really good initiative!

14.07.2019 20:16

A fast search showed me this:

probably worth sharing for more eyes on your posts!

14.07.2019 20:18

I will definately take a look then!

14.07.2019 20:26

Awesome stuff ! We needed something like this for so long !

14.07.2019 20:25

This works need to be boost be all community. Promoting stuffs on other social media is a way to do it. Hopefully it get a backed from SPS. This promotional will bring more eyeballs in the roof

This platform has always had a shortage of link sharing content consumers. That's our free advertising. Every popular site on the internet from Nasa to Youtube all benefit from link sharing content consumers. This is something we need, and more of it. Kudos.

14.07.2019 23:28

Couldn't agree more! Thats why we want to encourage people to use them and maybe eventually use them because they care (?) :-D?

15.07.2019 05:14

I didn't know about it but I will go through it and share content in reddit too. Its a great initiative to boost steem.

It was not clear to me if I was supposed to share the link in this comments section too, aside from the promotional thread on Reddit, so just to be sure:

Shared How to improve the Steemmonsters reward system? in both Steemmonsters-related subreddits and in a comment to the promotional thread in the Steemit subreddit, as I think this is a very important matter regarding the future of the game

15.07.2019 21:14

Yeah comment too. :)

We'd really like it though if we got to share posts that even non-Steemians could understand all over Reddit. There's no minimum amount of comments you can make per week here either when sharing so keep that in mind. ^^

15.07.2019 21:56

The comments are just needed in case your Reddit username is different so we'd know who to reward when we choose the winners.

15.07.2019 21:57

Many subreddits ban links to steemit.com just so you are aware. Some of the biggest ones do due to link spam. You may have to use busy.org or palnet.io or steemspeak.com links to get past that.

A great initiative you have here - we don't need to tell "how awesome blockchain is", we just need to start sharing interesting stuff that is on Steem. The rest will happen itself when curious minds start noticing there's something different with Steem.
