Brittany Berger's curator insight, June 14, 2014 10:32 AM

This is a great piece on repurposing content. I love SlideShare for this purpose. Not only can it add a more interesting visual element to the blog post when you embed the presentation, but it puts your ideas on a new platform.

Stop the fast tracking of the TPP if you are involved in content creation.
