When working online, in any capacity, how you put your time to use is the X factor which ultimately determines what level of success you enjoy, or not!

Introduces 'New' Voices

Readers are always interested in new opinions or even simply a new voice when viewing material that focuses on topics of interest to them! Typically when curating content, you are pulling from multiple sources so when it comes to varying opinions, perspectives or even tone of delivery, you will NEVER be at a loss! The varying angles and perspectives introduced will only serve to make the information you're delivering more interesting reading for viewer and this is what you want!

Although your 'voice' might have initially attracted many of your readers, always remember, variety is always welcomed!

Through your journeys to find and gather the relevant information you need, you can't help but 'stumble' over shiny new nuggets of knowledge! Curating absolutely requires for you to review any information you're considering using! Remember, you are essentially 'patch-working' bits of information together so you MUST determine if each piece is a good fit or not! Always be prepared when curating content , to have a convenient way to take notes simply because you are bound to comes across something useful, be it for business or personal reasons!
