Social leaders are founded more on their ability to create meaning than their pure knowledge, something that we need to keep in mind when we go looking for them.

Great idea James!
Helen Bryant's comment, June 12, 2013 2:48 PM
Sorry Laura - I missed your comment! I think the key is knowing why you are doing it, curating for curating sake I think can lead to disappointment. As we are early on in the use of the technology and curator adoption. Playing a longer game to achieve your purpose, building your voice, finding your tribe I think takes time...thus I do not have any great expectations from which to lose my enthusiasm! My main challenge is finding the time to do it - hence I missed my first opportunity to have a discussion about it!! Thanks for replying.
Laura Brown's comment, June 13, 2013 1:24 AM
I've been a content curator of one kind or another since the days I was working for the Open Directory Project in 1998. Having your passion and liking what you are doing is not enough for the every day grind at times. In some ways it is easier if you are working alone but that also has it's hurdles. I have a tendency to keep taking on too much. Even when I know I am feeling over whelmed or under inspired I will still find some little project. My first instinct is to try something new. (Especially a project someone else has had to give up on). Anyway, it is not so easy to keep going. I think it helps to lighten up on your schedule and give yourself a better balance of online/ work time and offline/ personal time.
