Top 29 Ways To Stay Creative [Infographic + Marty Note] | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Infographics on being creative in life and inspiration with top 29 ways to be creative on success and startup exploring and researching ideas and concept...

Marty Note

My favorite ways to stay creative are:

* Free writing.
* Drawing and painting.

* Reading (actual BOOKS not blog posts lol).
* Talking to smart friends.
* Hitting the museums especially NYC or Philly.
* Riding a bicycle (very Zen meditation for me).

* Creating thought experiments.

* Doing math in my head (I suck at it so it forces all the reserves in).

* Music especially LOUD rock or jazz (Miles especially).

* Taking pictures to support a story.

* Watching TV (Ovation, PBS and HBO best sources of inspiration).

* Working out (back when I had the energy to do that LOL).

* Playing with my crazy bengal cat Lucian.

* Shopping but only in musuem or art stores. 
* Working in public (makes me zero in and focus deeper).

* Looking at great design (effect is delayed but there).

* Changing a location (traveling).

* Used to read magazines, blogs don't seem to do it.

* Read something HARD I don't understand (all in again).

* Interview someone smarter than me.

* Curate something especially across nontraditional lines. 

* Create a contest or a game. 

* Manipulate SPEED of task (speed up or slow way down).

* Think about creative times from the past (working with the artist Alton Pickens at Vassar is a favorite).

Drone Marketing: Is Your Content Marketing This Cool? via Curagami

Drone Marketing: Is Your Content Marketing This Cool? via Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Drone Marketing
Watch the insanely cool video of the DARPA drone flying indoors at 45mph and ask if your content is that cool. Even better ask how you can co-opt cool content like this to serve your brand, website and goals. 

The web is always about two things - NOW and EVERYTHING. If you and your team truly understand those ideas and how they apply to the web and your online marketing then you watch a seemingly unrelated video of a drone thinking, "How can we use this".

The web is always about NOW and EVERYTHING so if you use the platform your marketing is always happening NOW and is about EVERYTHING whether you realize it or not.

Content Marketers Beware - Rise of the Hackers Impacts You Too Now! via @sengineland

Content Marketers Beware - Rise of the Hackers Impacts You Too Now! via @sengineland | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Marty Note 
As a content curator and publisher I've had content we wrote copied and brazenly stolen. Google's latest algorithm changes seem to be reducing whole cloth copying, but another and potentially more dangerous dragon is rising - the content hack.

It is possible to do all kinds of bad things to your content as this Search Engine Land post shares. This highly recommended post doesn't only share scary stories and examples of content hacks. The post also shares a great set of tools to help publishers ward off what may be inevitable - someone hacking their content.

Scary, the hacked content algorithm is not working?   hacked content is still showing up in the search results.
