I discovered this thing called “Content Curation” several months ago and I jumped in head first. I’m on Scoop.it!, Pearltrees, Pinterest, and I was on Snip.it until they got bought by Yahoo! and closed up shop.
This is what I do. When I hear about a new online service and it interests me, I give it a try. You might say that I’m using too many different curation sites. I’m inclined to agree, but I’ve got to say that I find value in each of the three tools that I’m using.
So I want to answer some questions for myself:
Is this just a time consuming hobby?
Am I really helping other people navigate this sea of information that is the Internet?
Is content curation an activity that can lead me to a new career?
I’m going to try and work that out via a series of posts to this blog. We’ll see how it turns out.
