The Ideal Blogger's Workflow for Effectively Curating Online Content

June 15, 2014 Robin Good


Robin Good's insight:



What are the key steps that a blogger should follow to effectively curate content online?


Silvya Rosenthal Tolisano shares her personal workflow to curate content as a blogger, by highlighting the seven key steps she suggests to go through when preparing content for a blog, 


  1. Find & Acquire
  2. Select & Filter
  3. Group, Organize & Arrange
  4. Editorialize, Contextualize & Annotate
  5. Create, Present, Transform & Remix
  6. Engage & Customize
  7. Share 


and by reminding those already doing it

a) not to "copy - paste" entire long passages from articles "as they are", but to rather share short portions to which personal commentary, evaluation or extra value must be added,


b) not to confuse long list of links or resources, for which there is often very little verification and analysis, let alone commentary and added value, with curation.  


The key element of curation is adding value, not collecting large amount of items on a topic. That's what a collector does, not a curator. 



Useful. Informative. Great illustration. 8/10
