Wow a great post on blogs. With these 26 points, you know everything that is useful to be a great blogger. I'll keep it in the mind during 2013.

The technical side of blogging can be very demanding, so the plugins really help. In addition to great content and SEO, I think you need an outreach/networking program.

Pinterest- A Whole New Way of Engaging With Your Audience

Pinterest is a new way of engaging with your audience.  It's important to remember that each social network is a unique enviornment and that requires a different way of presenting content, allowing others to see different sides of you,  know who is behind your brand, what you stand for and find points of connection with you.


The other day I posted  'You Are What You Curate  -  That's Why Pinterest is so Hot' - It's a really great article and sets the tone for this new social network and how to be effective here.   http://bit.ly/xZKAM3

So here is the first addition to that build! The topic- Curation!I thought I would focus on curation because a) I have a favorite site and b) there has been a lot of “press” on Pinterest as a curation tool and as a result I thought the timing was right.

What is social media curation?

Thanks Everyone for this feedback. Just wonderful.

Robin- absolutely appreciated the feedback. I did visit all the sites to ensure that they were still in operation however missed some very important details. So thank you so much for providing the clarification needed. :))

Martin you need to do a little of what the article says - add your own perspective! I read the info and thought you had written it until I went to the link.

Hi Carey, I consider scoop.it as a tool to provide interesting information and not really as a curation tool, but, maybe you're right and I should reconsider my opinion about my approach! Thank you for your feedback.
