Having been a content curator since 2006, I am changing my posts here to include 3 blog links,1 quotation and 1 slogan about 1 topic each week. The new format will begin in a few weeks. Published every Wednesday and Saturday. Enjoy!
“Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme.” Beth Kanter
“Curating content takes significant time, compared to typical blog or article writing, because it requires the author to find, vet/verify, organize high quality information from multiple sources, and to add value and perspective to it before deciding how to present it in ways that make more effective.”
“Curation is a complex and challenging activity.”
“It requires competence / experience in the field being curated, as well as great familiarity with the players, the issues, the trends and the tools that define its space. To curate requires above average skills (research, vetting, writing, presenting) and strong knowledge of the matter at hand.” Robin Good
