SteemEarn - Get the most out of the content you write online

Nowadays, content writing and blogging is a very common activity and many people like journalists and food bloggers make a living out of it. Online blogging websites gives us a very good platform to help us share content easily and effortlessly. We have chosen two content writing networks for our project, Medium and SteemIT.

Medium is the largest content sharing platform in the world with over 480 million views per month where users can share their views in terms of content. In exchange of writing content user just gets popularity and recommendations on Medium. On the other hand, we have chosen SteemIT, which is the largest of its kind platform where you get paid in terms of Steem Currency for writing whenever someone upvotes your post or insert a comment on your post.

 So if a writer is good in writing content in several categories, he/she is often confused about which category he should write or start with. Our platform solves this problem by suggesting them the category on which they should write to get maximum return. On Medium, return is in terms of Claps and Recommendations and on SteemIT, it is in terms of Steem Cryptocurrency (In simple language, it is a currency like bitcoin on blockchain network for this purpose only).

How we analysed the data – In SteemIT, we collected the data and ranked the topics by their number of upvotes and comments. In medium we have no of claps and recommendation along with comments to help us compare different categories. To show the results we designed a website. We implemented user authentication on our website along with facebook login. We have a search bar to search for topics that the user is interested in and display the graphical representation of the results, giving the recent fluctuations in the popularity of the topic by the help of data collected over the period of time. The user can also add his favorite topics on which he get a live feed on the dashboard.
