Blogging as a Content Curation Hub

Blogging as a Content Curation Hub | Content Creation, Curation, Management |

I want to take a look at curation through the lens of blogging. How can educators and students use their blogs to become their own information curators and content curators for others in their learning community.

Why Content Gets Shared
Turns out our gut instincts about content marketing are correct. The TOOLS we use and the content we curate and create make a difference in the amount and velocity of our social shares.

Tools such as and your blog are indispensible say the results from a 30 day in depth view of @ScentTrail mentions on Topsy. Type of content also matters.

Infographics, SEO and my trusty ScentTrail Daily generate the most mentions. Friends also matter.

#4 on the mentions list is group tweets from friends with thanks or best wishes for the weekend. Staying connected and sharing are critical to successful content marketing.

Interesting bottom line is a confirmation of what all content marketers know to be true. Confirmation of the fact that content gets shared is in the numbers. I don't curate or create 30 pieces of content a day (well not on most days lol) and I've certainly NEVER created 66 (most mentions in a single day in this study.

These numbers confirm what we know - content gets shared and explains what types of content is most likely to generate shares and what tools to use to promote shares.

Marty thanks for sharing this study. In the world of online social sharing we need to rethink of the role as content providers. 

My thoughts on how old content media producers need to evolve.

Interesting to see how newspapers, tv and radio are starting to figure out the "value added" model of internet marketing.  People will pay for digital content, and the great thing for the publishers is the low cost of distribution. Online marketers have done it for years using micro websites with targeted content and now apps. I don't see why a newspapers,etc. should be any different.


The way I see it is the newspaper and their website should be the teaser to the value added content. Right now it's like they tell the story and move on, then cry the blues, no one will pay us for our content. Now if they extended the content or partnered with someone (eg health or fitness) for value added content people would pay. 


The newspapers, tv, etc, need to become the advertiser of the content, instead of depending on advertisers to support the media.

They have a reader base that many bloggers would love to have, but they need to rethink the connections they make with the reader.

Great analysis by Brian. I go even a step further in Saving The News&Observer and suggest that newspapers become part of their own rehabilitation by embracing the CROWD in real time by throwing off their "we are here to guide you" ethos. The editorial-centric model is over. Brian's idea about promotion-centric is a good one, but I want more. I want these organization deep in the weeds on things so WEB marketing they can't NOT understand how DIFFERENT life is and will always be from that magic time when a newspaper could take down a President, we could only watch 4 TV channels and exciting programming was a show about a boy named Beaver :).

The Best Marketing Blogs of 2012 [Infographic] | Content Creation, Curation, Management |

If you are a marketing professional, you probably follow a number of blogs to stay up to date with your industry. And with companies of all types launching their own blogs, you certainly have options.

At the end of 2011, NM Incite was tracking more than 189 million blogs worldwide, 5x the number just 5 years earlier.

Blogs are the newsstands of a new generation of business professionals. Newspapers have been replaced with blogs like Mashable and FastCompany and trade publications have given way to specialty blogs of all kinds. Blogs are an integral part of every marketer’s daily routine and are here to stay.

For this reason, over the past few weeks, Pardot has been covering our favorite blogs on a number of different subjects, from thought leaders to social media, to help readers find valuable resources they may have missed. We have compiled all of our favorite blogs into one infographic, to provide a comprehensive resource for all of your reading needs.
