Late Night Caturday Musings by Curator Cat: Considering Hive's "2nd Layer"

in Caturdaylast month

Good evening Felines and Hoomans of Hivelandia!

Seems like I missed a good bit of "territory" here, for one reason or another... and now Caturday is almost over, so I wanted to at least get a quick post out!


More Than Just a Cat Blog...

I always intended for this to be more than just a bunch of cat pictures, although that definitely is one of the reasons for my being here.

I wanted to get more into the community building end of things, and envisioned adding some content that would be a complement/contrast to the technical and investing and crypto posts on Hive. Not that there is something wrong with them, but I feel that one of the ways we can make it easier to build new memberships is to show there are many kinds of content welcome here.


One of my ambitions was to examine and talk about the "second layer" communities we have here... and I was reminded again now that LeoFinance has really gotten itself in the news.

What makes for a "good" community? What does it need to have?

Early on in the going, I staked myself quite a bit in both (then) SteemLeo and CreativeCoin... because those two made sense to me. That has worked out pretty well.


I now have an "alt" account @curatorcat.leo to just take on the financial and investing things... saving this account for the more general cat content.

Specialization — I think it's important. Not everyone is a "generalist."

But anyway, I hope everyone has had a really good Caturday, and I wish you all a continued good weekend!



Love Cats? Get Involved in Hive's Cat Communties!

If you're a cat lover and often/sometimes post pictures or other content that includes your feline friends, why not become an active part of Hive's growing Cat Communities?

These are some of the more active Cat Communities — why not join them ALL? Remember, you can also "cross-post" your cat posts to them!

HiveCats by @curatorcat is a central "gathering place" for cat content on Hive; promoting the use of the #hivecats tag for feline content!

Cat Snaps by @manorvillemike is a place to post pictures of your cats when you don't have a whole lot to say beyond just sharing your cute photos!

Caturday by @saboin is a community where we get to celebrate posts relating to Saturday — aka "Caturday" — our own special day!

Cat Photos by @andrarchy is a "mixed use" cat content community; posts can be just photos or longer, as long as the subject is CATS!

Cats by @captainklaus (and Sissi!) is another "general" cat content community.

Last but certainly not least, don't forget the dPet Community created by @kona, which is the original pet related "channel," and which typically also has lots of cat photos! This is also the home of the Daily Pet Photography challenge!

There are a number of other feline communities listed on Hive, but I am not sharing them for now as they have not had any activity (by their Admins OR users) since the Steem/Hive fork. Updates as they become available!

Always good to see the C.C.

Even if it is 2 minutes to midnight... lol


Ooh, thank you for the link to Hive's cat communities!
Dare I confess: there are at least half a dozen variations on #QuarantineCats at Facebook, and I join every one of 'em. (Same with the HOW MANY collie groups there.)
#CatsRule but only because #DogsLet Them.
Who's really in charge...?

Five months since @kona last posted, since #dailypetphotography was still active.
I hope s/he is surviving Covid!
