There are over 27,000 articles being shared every day. And as you will soon discover if you don’t already know, there is a mind boggling and astonishing amount of content being created each and every day as well. Building an audience is tough work. First you have to be good at what you do, and provide great value. Then you must keep people entertained, and most of all persevere through the lows.

The demands that are being put on our time are well, intense. So to save us time and help assist us in content discovery, curation seems to be a viable option. We must not forget however as we move forward, that algorithms and computers should assist us in developing a better quality of life. The core of what makes us human, is to have a human experience. This is something not meant for artificial intelligence. This is a gift meant for us, humanity. It is up to us to safeguard it and to continue to cherish it.  So let’s not forget in our quest for likes, plus ones re-tweets, and god only knows what ever else coming down the pike, that at the end of the day it’s about three things.

1. How you contribute in a positive way to society.

2. How much quality time you spend with your family and loved ones.

3. How willing you are to fight for what you believe in.

Now then please enjoy these articles. They are very good.
