This great article was written by Karen Dietz for Curatti.
I always get so much out of reading Karen's curation and reviews here on Scoopit and this is no exception. No matter how long I've been reviewing or curating content, I am always reminded of something I should do to make my work better for my brand and for my audience.
Here's what caught my attention:
"When you’re curating content you are telling a story–your story–through the material you curate, the reviews you write, and the voice you bring to your topic".
When think of your curation as an ongoing story, you too can realize similar benefits.
So how can your curation reflect and tell your story?
Here is one of her six great tips:
What kind of a voice do you want to bring to the table? How do you want to be perceived? What is important to emphasize?
Finding your voice is critical when curating content.
Have a point of view. People want you to have a point of view.
* Your point of view will help others think critically about the content to offer them.
* Your voice and the tone you bring to your curation also reflect your personality. Your readers want you to be real, authentic, and fallible.
*They want to know who you are.

This is a great post, very insightful, observations are right on target, by Vanessa DiMauro, CEO Leader Networks
Lots to digest here but what particularly caught my attention as a content curator was this:
What is the role of content in creating value in communities?
How will that change? Will value come in other ways?
People come for content and stay for community.
Access to valuable content (content that people can’t get elsewhere) is the single most compelling driver for participating in an online community.
****Content serves as the trigger to join, and fuels the community over time by providing contexts for conversations between peers / members.
****Through the use of social media, and especially online communities,
****professionals now have the ability to reach, connect with, learn from and influence other professionals who share an interest or a passion in the topics of interest.
****Sounds like this community - Scoopit!
Thought leadership is the new currency of credibility.
