  11. Hi Nirmala,

    Good beginner article for content curation. Content curation is probably a must have for bloggers who haven’t earned expert status or don’t have a lot of traffic.

    Content curation helps them in keeping the regular updates in the blog without worrying about what to create next.

    But the downside is that we need to do it effectively to gain reputation.

    And I am using Scoop.it for content curation and I found it to be really good.

  12. Hello Nirmala,

    I really enjoyed your article and the comments on it. Of the tools mentioned, there is at least one that I have not encountered before (Curation Soft). Thanks for the run-down.

    By the way, I saw your article over on Blokube and headed over to your site. 🙂

    1. Welcome to my blog Vernessa 🙂

      Glad you found my blog from Blokube and I visited your blog too. It is informative and but I was in a hurry, so left without commenting.

      It is really good that you’ve already using the content curation tools, keep curate the worthy content for your readers. Will try to catch you over there 🙂

      Keep visiting to leave your valuable opinions 🙂

  13. Nirmala, thanks for this wonderful post. I have not done content curating before, though I plan to give it a try someday to see how it goes.

    Yes, it is a great way to present fresh content from across the web to your audience and also make your blog updated at all times.

    However, my fears is that it might just make a writer to become lazy at creating his own unique content. Come to think of it, if I already have places where I could get content for my blog readers, what would then motivate me to write anymore?

    Your audience is already used to own voice and unique style of writing. But I feel content curating might dilute that in the long run.

    Thanks once again for a great write up. Do have a lovely weekend.

  14. Good points on content curation Nirmala, I’ve enjoyed using Scoop it and List.ly – I do think they have their place online and hope they don’t become spammy in any way. I think as long as you really like the content and it’s useful to your readers then it is a good thing overall.

  15. I don’t do a lot of CC but Scoop.it is one that I’ve used and got some decent results from it. It’s just these days a lot of spammers ruin it for everyone else. Aside from that, this is a great good post! 🙂

  16. Good piece of write-up! This one opens our eyes, content curation is a long and winding road so we need to know our audience first. While, brand yourself, not your company is what I can contribute here. Because when you establish a personal brand via curation, you can carry that brand into your next job or business. The value of your curation work accrues to you, while also benefiting whatever business you happen to be involved with at the moment.

    This comment was left in kingged.com where this post was already “kingged” and shared for Internet marketers.

  17. Content curation is something i have been working on for some time now and although am yet to grasps the full meaning of it.
    well, after reading this post i guess i can explain content curation to other bloggers who are wondering what it is all about.
    Thanks for taking time to explaining it.

  18. Hello,

    Wonderful tips, I really don’t know the exact definition of content duration and I just got the complete info from this post.

    And the resources you’ve mentioned about finding or successful curation is really informative and I’m gonna bookmark it.

    Thanks

  19. Great article Nimala, please consider adding Roojoom.com to the list of curation platforms. It is a new way to use content curation as storytelling, adding your insights and comments in each step.

  20. Hi there, thank you for excellent post. I think the main part of a good and consistent content curation is a discipline, organization and system. If one has content curation strategy developed, it is far easier to simply follow steps on a daily basis then making new steps each day all over again. Also, without content marketing strategy, with all of work needed for blogger, focus is easily turned away. Regards, Matija, Slovenia

  21. It is a very good information for a start up blogger like mine . I’ve just started up curating the contents like you mentioned and i will feedback you a month or two of it. Thank you so much now for writing the wonderful article.
