Content Curation Tool Storination Invites New Users For Private Beta

Content Curation Tool Storination Invites New Users For Private Beta | Business Attractitude | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Private beta Storination is content curation tool that provides the first community-oriented platform based on the Storify publishing tool allowing journalists or any user to collate a group of Storify stories around a topic and allows others to add to the storyboard.

Yesterday I received an invitation code as beta tester. I attached a screenshot about my dashboard: I am testing and editing it with my tweets and some sources from this my topic on Scoop.it.

 

From official website:

"Storination lets you create online communities called a Nation. It's a space where you and other people add into a storyboard social stories. Customize your Nation like a blog by uploading a logo, and a large cover. Now, you can publish a Storify story by collecting photos, video, tweets, embedding URL... or If you prefer, just import social stories directly from Storify to your Nation.

 

A storyboard is an online set of Storify stories curated by you. After opening your Nation, Storination allows you to compile into a storyboard your stories and other people's stories created in Storify. It's very easy to organize your storyboard by adding or removing stories. With the 'favorite story' feature you highlight stories easily..."

46 Ways To Start A Business With No Money

46 Ways To Start A Business With No Money | Business Attractitude | Scoop.it

Most people who want to start their own business don’t have a ton of money laying around and it’s probably one the most common questions I get emailed about: How can I get started without a lot of cash?

 

Well I’ve put together a list below of the best ideas I’ve heard and personally used. I hope you find it useful!

 

The three basic strategies to starting a business without much money are:

Delay the normal “business starting” activities like incorporating, hiring, renting office or retail space, etc until AFTER your business has started earning money. This is known as bootstrapping. Doing everything yourself and spending your personal time instead of hiring an expert. (Takes longer but costs less.) Using some neat tricks and little known deals below.

10 Reasons Why Project Managers Should Write a Blog

10 Reasons Why Project Managers Should Write a Blog | Business Attractitude | Scoop.it

It was my own manager who first suggested to me to write a blog. Company cutbacks had added project management duties to my position. By following this advice, I soon discovered why daily blogging is such a good idea.

 

Having a blog has helped me in project management immensely. Blogging helped me keep track of all aspects of the project, allowing me to take on more projects. It was not unheard of to have a dozen or more projects on my desk at the same time. I wrote a blog entry for every one of them every workday, and answered the associated comments.
