    Thanks for another great episode Ti.

    What I do for content curration on my blog is every Sunday to make a post of the best internet marketing articles and blog posts from third parties that I have tweeted that week.

    It’s an easy way to provide content for my blog but also a way to send some love back to the original authors and to maybe get on their “cool list”.

      Hi Jakob!

      Great to see you back again. :)

      I’m excited to hear that you’re doing link roundups. They really are great for building up traffic and engagement. I checked out some of your roundup posts and they’re great. You’ve got some awesome resources listed that I’ll def be checking out.

      I also like to use my roundups as a sort of bookmarking for myself as well. If I wasn’t able to finish a piece I can always refer back to my posts.

      Thanks for sharing your input. You’re definitely on my ‘cool list’. ;)

    Hey Ti!

    I love me some scoop.it but i was wondering how to get more out of it. So thanks bunches for the timely info.

    I’ve seen roundups and i link paper.li takes them to the next level. It’s also something i’d use as a part of my email marketing as well. Just a thought.

    Ok, I’m like starving, so off to make breakfast. Wait is 10:30 more of brunch than breakfast? Wither way I need eat eats so I’ll catch ya round the net.

    Lata!

      Hi Lady!

      Yes, Scoop.it is HOT! I’m glad this video provided you with some helpful info.

      Hmm, I’m not sure if I follow you on using Paper.li as a way to expand your email marketing. Care to elaborate for us? Sounds interesting.

      Thanks for dropping by and sharing your input. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Hi and thanks for the post, it helped.

    Why my work with PageOne Curator did not work?

      Hi Gabriel.

      So glad to see your comment. Welcome to the community!

      I’m glad you’ve found this post useful. I can’t say that I’ve ever heard of PageOne Curator. I personally perfer Scoop.it. I would suggest that you stick with either Scoop.it, Paper.li or curating content on your blog. I’ve found that these platforms and methods are the most effective.

      Thanks again for dropping by and commenting. I hope to see more of you!

    Hey Ti, great post! I’m mixed on content curation. Scoop it has sent some traffic my way, but I’ve also had a few scrapers jack my work without attribution.

    I think curation works if you’re using it for the right reasons: to help your audience.

    Communities that spread education and good stuff around the interwebs = good. Poseur-writers who post others’ work to their own site without pumping the tires of the original authors = bad.

    • tiroberts

      Hi Kelvin, buddy!

      So glad to see your comment!

      That sucks that your content has been swiped. I can’t say that I’ve seen my content swiped before (outside of where I’ve been given the proper credit as the original creator), but then again I haven’t really been on the look out for it.

      Unfortunately, as content creators getting our content swiped is the risk that comes along with the territory. However, I think that whoever does that won’t get much benefit from it or it will be short lived because it’ll come to light eventually.

      Karma has a way of working itself out.

      Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful info my new friend.
