I’ve had a lot of pieces curated. I’m on an especially hot streak right now. Oddly, though, I’ve found it doesn’t really increase the payout much at all. I’m not complaining. I”m happy to have things curated and it gets a lot more eyes on the story. However, it doesn’t always translate into more income. A perfect example: I wrote two stories on rare book artifacts. One was curated, the other was not. The one that was NOT curated earned more money (so far anyway) than the one that was. So, I’m not entirely sure how the system works.
