5 Reasons Why You Should Use Content Curation as Part of Your Blogging Strategy

5 easy ways to curate content on your blog

A good, thorough article on curation.  One of the key features of MyCurator is that it makes searching for and finding good content so easy.  This article just popped up in my list of curation articles after being found through a Google Alert.  It was easy to review the full content in  a pop-up and then quickly publish it.

I like to think of content curation as utilizing existing content in a new, value-added way.

But once you’ve figured out a strategy that works, you’ll have a process in place for regularly finding, compiling and editorializing content your audience will love!
