Content Curation: Nine Things To Keep in Mind

Terri Rice's curator insight, September 26, 12:48 PM

Marc has given us a great checklist to refer to as we curate. It truly is too easy to become lost in all of the available information. Staying on target is the 1st priority, but saying something worthwhile is 2nd. It's too easy to ramble or puppet authors. I find myself doing this too often. Thank you, Marc for this terrific reminder about quality over quantity.
