Margie Clayman discusses the 12 Most Easy Traps To Fall Into When Curating Content.   Intro:   Last week we talked about reasons why a person (like me) who is curating content may not include certain kind of posts. This week I want to talk about some of the traps one can fall into when working on curating content.

Having fallen into most of them, this is something I know a lot about. Or, like Han Solo famously said, “Hey, trust me.”   Here’s what caught my attention: Gathering posts that are all from the same perspective If you are doing a lot of curating, you’ll notice something that is not all that surprising. You’re going to gravitate toward posts you agree with. It’s nice to have validation of your views, and we just naturally move towards people who think like we do.

When you’re curating content though, you’re responsible (I believe) for offering a variety of perspectives to show the spectrum of what’s out there. I’m doing the best I can to offer a wide range of perspectives at The Blog Library because I don’t want any visitor to feel like they are not represented or welcome there.   http://12most.com/2011/08/30/12-easy-traps-fall-curating-content/
