Steemit Tips for Content Curators: Passive Voice vs Active Voice

Over the last several weeks, I provided several basic and advanced tips on how to effectively gain increased followings and rewards on the Steemit platform. But what I have neglected -- and I'm sure many others as well -- is providing advice for content curators and consumers. Not everyone has the time or the inclination to create original content of their own, but they enjoy consuming particularly enjoyable materials, and promoting their work. This video is my tip on how to effectively engage Steemit content creators from the perspective of the curator or consumer. Content creation and curation are two different animals in that I encourage Steemit content creators to use the "active voice." This is where the subject performs the verb mentioned in the sentence. For example, "I created Steemit content" is using the active voice. Creators should use active voice more often because it simply makes the content more understandable. Active voice also helps to clarify your position in an argument. Rather than saying "this report was written by experts," your argument is better solidified (and sounds more confident) when you state "experts wrote this report." On the other hand, content curators should use the passive voice more often than the active voice, particularly if you have a difference of opinion. This is so important because most people today don't understand the difference between debating and being an asshole. Borrowing from the earlier example, passive voice is when you state "Steemit content was created *by me*." In this sentence, the verb is being done to the subject. It's also a more whimsical and somewhat ambiguous tone. When (properly) debating someone, it's best to use passive voice when applicable to take the "teeth" out of the argument. A clear asshole sign is when a content curator jumps on the Steem user deploying aggressive language, disrespectful characterizations, and strawman arguments. Quickly, the focus turns not to the Steem content, but to the Steemit user. That's unfortunate because that's not the point of Steemit or any discourse. It should be about the exchange of ideas -- calling someone names or characterizing them in rude ways as being "lazy, forgetful, intolerant, etc." defeats the purpose of debating. And really, the focus should be on the content, not the creator!
