Blogging on Stish.io
When submitting blog articles to Stish, we are looking for a few things:
A Title – All blog posts must include a unique and descriptive blog title. Blog posts will not be published without a title.
Content – Blog content should be constructed with words that form sentences or, at a minimum, convey a thought. The veracity of the quality of a post will not stand if there is no content. No Content = No Rewards.
Featured Image – All blog posts submitted to Stish must include a featured image. Any post status without a featured image will be automatically set to “Draft” status.
Category/Tag – Every blog post must include at least one Category and one Tag. Posts will not be published by default without these and will also be automatically set to “Draft” status.
Any blog post not in compliance with the guidelines above will not be eligible for rewards. Not Published = No Rewards.
On Stish,io, we look for blog posts that add value to the Stish community. Articles submitted to Stish are subject to moderation for the reasons listed above. Good blog posts generally combine text, digital images, and links to other web pages, sources, or any media relevant to its topic. We reserve the right to reward members and to remove those rewards where necessary for clear abuses of the platform and rewards system. When in doubt you should always publish to the Social Portal https://stish.io/ where you will still be rewarded!
Following our quality blog posting guide on this page will help to ensure your blog posts receive the reward it deserves.
Quality Blog Post Guide.
Follow this quality blog post guide to create excellent articles.
- Create a unique descriptive title.
- Include a Featured Image that is relative to your article.
- Blog posts should be structured using paragraphs, headings, and keywords. Content should be easily readable and convey a coherent message. Use Punctuation and Spell Check In Your Posts.
- Include relevant photos and graphics in your blog posts.
- Include tags and a category (if you need a new category you can use the contact us form to request one)
- Practice common Search Engine Optimization(SEO) techniques for greater post visibility and higher rankings on search engine results pages (SERPS).
Do Not delete your posts unless you feel it is absolutely necessary. Deleting posts will automatically remove earned STISH credits from your account. Posts should only be deleted if they no longer accurately convey the original message, or are deemed to be no longer accurate or relevant for public consumption. This includes any post that might be misconstrued or considered misleading. If you feel you have made errors in your post, no problem. You can always come back and edit your post if needed, without any rewards penalty.
Notice: Not only does post deletion remove any earned STISH credits, it also penalizes your account balance, eliminating any future rewards for posting duplicate content (double dipping). Deleting posts costs more than it rewards to create them in order to prevent spam, plagiarism, and rewards scammers.
Social Media Microblogging.
The Stish Social Portal also offers rewards for the non-blogger and allows for the creation of content with slightly more flexible guidelines as compared to actual blog posts. Our social portal is driven by our community and thrives under the same principles that drive all social media… social networking. Here on Stish we have combined the blogging world with the social media aspects of networking (microblogging), to create the first all-inclusive rewards-based blogging platform.
Here on Stish.io, you can use the social portal as you would use any other social microblogging tool, where you can post a variety of content formats including text, images, video, audio, and hyperlinks. (Not sure what Microblogging is? Wiki defines Microblogging best.) The community social portal allows basic markdown formatting and up to 8000 words per post. Outside of true blogging, most articles can be added here.
Stish = Chill.
While it is the policy of Stish.io to not moderate or censor blog posts for content, we do reserve the right to reject any post that does not meet the posting requirements for rewards. Nor, is this a content quality test, but rather a platform-imposed mandate to validate that all post submissions meet Stish.io’s simple definition of a blog post. All for the purpose of protecting our rewards pool and to ensure that rewards are earned fairly and distributed equitably to its members.
For quality control purposes, we have imposed a semi-automatic post review process where random posts will be sent to human eyeballs for a “Rewards Validation Screening.” Stish also reserves the right to complile member “whitelists” and “blacklists” as appropriate. All members in good standing will be held to the same standards, yet will always remain susceptible to removal of rewards when not meeting the basic blogging standards.
Scammers beware that Stish.io incorporates internal script runs to determine how Stish credits were earned, prior to exchanging these for STISH crypto. Any denied rewards due to failure to meet publishing guidelines or attempts at gaming the system are subject to Arbitration review by an arbitration panel consisting of early adopters of the platform. Stishit also believes in zero tolerance for plagerism and repeat offenders accounts will be terminated.
Rules of Order.
Here on Stish.io, we would prefer we had very few to no rules, but that is hardly feasible given Stish is a rewards-based platform and there will always be cheaters looking to, well… you know! All we ever ask of our members is to be honest and fair, and to please use common sense when creating content worthy of the rewards given. Stish.io uses community standard software that checks for spam, plagiarism, scams, fake accounts, etc. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at anytime for any reason. We reserve the right to remove Stish Credits or prevent the exchange for STISH crypto tokens if those Stish credits are deemed to have been earned inappropriately.
Our members can help the platform by reporting suspicious activity or the discovery of content that appears to be unworthy. Reporting done by members initiates a review which helps keep unwanted content off the platform, and can be accomplished by all members fairly, and without retaliation or repercussion.
Stish.io thanks you for your continued support and may you never wake up to a banned account. You can always contact us without being logged in to request a manual review of your account.
