Ken Morrison's comment, April 29, 2012 1:40 AM
Thank you for this helpful scoop it site. You have great information. I have visited several times.

Sorry for unsolicited advice: If you care about your score (it is ok if you don't) I have two things that can help your site improve dramatically, and thus help other people find your great site:
1) Tag Everything. This helps you and others find your posts as your site grows. Scoop.it rewords users who use the tagging feature
2) Add your own opinion in a sentence or two. Scoop.it does not reward scoops that recycle the orignal text. That is why they leave it in italics vs. non-italic print.

Again, I am sorry for unsolicited advice. I simply share thoughts sometimes with curators of sites that I think deserve a higher score. Again, for me, the value of a high score is not for clout but for helping others find our sites and resources easily.
