SideQuest – Building a steemit curation bot
Last friday I discovered the post https://steemit.com/technology/@moisesmcardona/steemplace-api by Moises m Cordona.

I have created an open beta of a Steemit curation bot.  I provide a link to the google sheet.  This will prompt you to make a copy of the sheet which will then save to your google drive.

![](https://steemitimages.com/DQmZuf7SwrLQ8HhekTYxuMManhtCaBtMymH4en9ozkrruxJ/image.png)

You need to go to tools > Script Editor and apply run the ‘runbot’ function.  I will provide a more detailed post when I have finished the project.  I suggest setting up a trigger that runs every 30 minutes.

The goal of this bot is to monitor a selection of users and upvote their posts automatically even while offline.  I built this bot because there are some authors that provide good quality content, but is not getting the exposure they deserve.  Looking at you @bigpanda.

My theory is one of supporting the authors and not necessarily the content as this will likely be of high quality.  I tend to review authors and will likely update the list from time to time.
Steemit users have a tendency towards fresh content and if you upvote this content too late, they lose interest because the monetary incentive is gone.  Hence the bot.

As always if you have any ideas or suggestions, please share in the comments.  I am open to them all.
Kind regards,
Tinus
