You may recall my previous post encouraging the use of the Blurt platform as an Instagram alternative:
I am still of the belief that people will gravitate to platforms that have real people, bringing with them their own circles of, you guessed it, real people!
To further encourage short content, selfie-style posting, the foundation has issued the @instablurt official curation account that will upvote real people. This account has been given a 4 Million Blurt Power delegation to help attract more users to Blurt that might be already posting on Instagram and other such apps.
The @instablurt account will also follow suitable user accounts that regularly provide content that satisfy the guidelines.
Use the #instablurt tag when posting
We still reserve the right to vote posts from users that may not have realised they need to use this tag but still meet all other criteria. The tag helps us find your content so please use it.
Good quality photos
Poor quality, bad lighting, blurry photos, etc may not receive votes or only small votes.
Show your face
Posts showing the body with the face/head cut off, obscured, or covered will not qualify. Photos wearing masks will not qualify, we are hoping to portray a positive vibe escape, free from the reminder of Covid.
No green screened backgrounds
We want your photo shares to be authentic, with real-life locations and spaces and not with doctored backgrounds. It is however permitted to use colour enhancing filters, sepia, B&W, etc to enhance the photos.
No rewards farming
We are looking for users that are vested long-term, If your account continually powers down week after week and sends all rewards to exchanges we will not support your content.
No religion, politics or hate speech
We will not support posts that include religion, politics, hating on others or inciting violence.
No nude or rude
Flirty, sexy, bikini etc photos are totally fine, however nudity is not and neither are rude hand or finger gestures, nor swearing etc.
Keep your kids safe online
The internet is full of dodgy people, we don't recommend you post pics of your pre-teen kids who may not yet understand the implications of their photos being shared publicly online; we wouldn't want them distributed to the dark places of the web. You are free to post pictures of your children on Blurt but we will not endorse it with upvotes.
Keep it real
We are looking for photos of your real self, being active, traveling, relaxing, posing with your pets, working, doing group activities and just being awesome. We may not vote first-time posters with big votes, we may wait for a few posts to show an authentic selfie trail to ensure it is a real person and not just a stock photo.
Photos, motion gifs, short 1 min videos posted on YouTube, TikTok, Odysee.com, HideoutTV, Theta.TV, 3Speak and similar.
Please don't beg for votes
Kindly do not ask why your post hasn't been voted or received a low vote etc, follow the guidelines and use the #instablurt tag and wait to be noticed.
We are offering this incentive on a discretionary, best effort basis, there are no guarantees of votes or vote weight. Some posts may get missed and curation may not happen every day. We reserve the right to unvote, pause or suspend all voting indefinitely.
Let's make Blurt about Real People and Real Places!
Please tell your friends to come post on Blurt and join the fun on Blurt!
