We are living in a time that is shifting rapidly. Blogging wasn’t a viable job about a decade or two ago, then some blogging superstar emerged and made career out of writing online. Then something shifted. First we got business blogs, then we got multiple user blogs, and there are places where you can browse through big amounts user generated content.
All In One Place
Scout.Cheetsheet.Me is a place like that. It is a place where you can browse through stories that were collected throughout the Internet by theeditors. They are searching for the most compelling, helpful and entertaining stories so you can spend more time reading and sharing, and less time searching. They strive for total transparency and give credit where credit is due. If you spot something that looks sketchy, you can let them know and they’ll do their best to fix it.
Scout is here to enhance your social experience online as a one-stop shop for stories that will thrill, surprise and inform you, plus some that will just plain make you laugh. Content is straight and to the point. If you spend all day on previously mentioned Buzzfeed, Reddit, Imgur or Thought Catalog and you let the biggest “squee” over the latest tiny hamster, Scout is place for you. However, it is not only a place to be a passive consumer of the served stories.
Mime That Meme
If you are you always sending your friends the latest WTF, OMG or LOL stories and you want to create viral content that gets read and shared by millions of people, you can contribute to Scout. You can dive into the world of kittens, corgis and cute things, to create fun and creative content that people love to share. Scout is always looking for writers interested in creating unique and shareable lists and posts around the latest memes, animals, celebrities, nostalgia, DIY, travel, etc.
Anyone can submit articles and Scout aims to feature and promote great work, but sometimes stories and images are featured that are miscredited or not meant for reproduction. If you are an artist/blogger/designer/etc and an article does not give you credit where credit is due, drop them a note and they will gladly correct the situation with the proper links and so on, or remove your work if you’d rather not be featured. They comply with DMCA copyright law and will remove any image in accordance with the standard DMCA Copyright Process, but they like if you drop them a line so they can fix the issue as soon as possible.
It is easy to get overwhelmed with content, scared when it comes to publishing your ideas and findings or miscredited somewhere in the process. Luckily, Scout Cheatsheet is making content easy to find, access and submit. It may not be world famous (yet) but it sure isn’t spamming you with ton of memes of the Christmas past.
