  1. Hi Kevin,

    I use curation here and there to draw in followers while working a bit less. Maybe a neat tweet, or some other piece of work which catches my eye will vibe with my audience. I say, easy does it, to resonate with your audience while keeping your brand and voice intact.

    Thanks!

    Take a look at pressly.com, which makes it easy to create destinations featuring your own content, curated-third-party content and social media content. It’s a cool way to own the conversation, and leverage the power of curation.

  5. Hi Kevin,

    as I am still fairly new to blogging I never used curated content before. But after reading your post I decided to go for it.

    While there is still some room for improvement, I can see why many people love content curation. Not just that you can fast and easily come up with some interesting and valuable content, also those you are linking to might be inclined to help with promotion.

    Thanks for this great post,
    Torsten
