Content Curation

Build a Process to Get More Ideas for Great Content

This is an excellent article on a specific process to generate ideas  and content on a regular basis.  While oriented towards finding new ideas and writing posts, I think many of the steps work great for content curation too.  Building lists of ideas, gathering content and then regularly posting is the essence of a sound content marketing process.

We are constantly inspired by the amazing work of others, and we owe a lot to the deep thinking and amazing resources that are readily available within the industry.
