Robin Good's insight:

 

 

If you are interested in what could be a good workflow and set of tools to use to curate content on your own WordPress blog, Nathan Weller has a must-read article for you.

 

In it, he dissects and explains the tools he uses to curate content on WordPress, from how he aggregates and browses RSS feeds, to how he filters, edits and actually curates the content of each post.

 

Interestingly his focus is on quality, not on having his site populated by lots of "somewhat relevant" content pulled in automatically by one of the many "content marketing"-oriented curation tools available today.

 

I think you will find several interesting ideas that you may have not considered on how to approach your curation workflow, let alone checking the several insightful comments at the end.

 

 

Lost of valuable information, resources, examples and advice. 8/10

Nathan Weller alude al uso de dos bookmarklets para curar contenidos. Se trata de Feedly y Tabcloud, herramientas interesantes que sirven para curar contenidos. Y es que no necesitamos un pluggin increíble para curar contenidos en nuestro Wordpress, sino que estos bookmarklets pueden hacer la misma función incluso de una manera más eficaz.

Curate Any Web Content With WordPress Default Plugin PressThis

Curate Any Web Content With WordPress Default Plugin PressThis | Tips, Tricks and Technology How To's | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for an easy and simple way to start curating content from other sources on the web, with the minimum of additional technology and expense, you may want to look into Wordpress default plugin PressThis.

 

PressThis is essentially a bookmarklet that can be dragged and dropped on your browser bookmarks bar and then used to capture the content of any web page you are on.

 

PressThis automatically captures the URL, title, and site name of the page you are on, while providing you inside an editable WordPress post, any original text you may have selected on the page.

 

Not only. PressThis has also two dedicated functions to capture also any image (along with the text) from any web page (you can choose the one you prefer from a scrollable viewer) as well as any video clip present.

 

PressThis is available inside any installed copy of WordPress inside the Tools menu.

 

Free to use for all WP users.

You're welcome. Thanks for the credit/ linkback. If you run the Link Library plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/link-library/ (which doesn't come with WordPress) you can also run a bookmarklet which lets you add new links in this same, quick way. Not everyone does much with the blogroll or links now. But I still use mine. Link Library also lets you set up your links like a web directory. Though you do have a lot of background work to do for setting it up. It may not be for anyone who wants something fast and easy. But, it is a free plugin and you could just use it for adding links.

I don't know if any of the tutorials mention this...

Once you have your PressThis loaded on your bookmark bar you can right click it and select Properties. Then change the name the button shows to anything you like. This is great if you have more than one blog you want to send content to. It helps to know which blog is which.
