#BlogTrends – Curating Content – 7/7/14

Curated content has changed how we experience news and where we go to get our information. The internet has exploded with options for both curators and readers, but what does all of that really mean?

This #blogtrends chat was all about our favorite places to find information, derive inspiration, and how we present that to our readers. We named a few well-known tools like Pinterest and Twitter, some overlooked tools like Klout, and discussed the importance of giving credit! Check out what our #blogtrends chat crew had to offer this week and feel free to join us every Monday night at 9PM EST for more #blogtrends topics and networking!

    Hi Ely,

    Nice chat 😉 From my experience curation works well if you add some personalized context to the content.

    Linking up and sharing a breakdown on the content, as well as why you’re curating, resonates with readers more than simply posting a link or reproducing an article with someone’s permission.

    Be quick to share freely but also elaborate on the content, to give your curation campaign the juice it needs to make your articles attractive.

    I dig the definitions up top. I see curating as sharing helpful content relevant to your target audience with your unique take on the content. This take adds the value needed to draw in reader interest, because otherwise, it’s just a lazy blog post.

    Thanks for the helpful share Ely.

    I’ll be tweeting shortly.

    Have a great Sunday 🙂

    Ryan
