Getting Advice on Content Curation Sites822

Rev private msg quote post Address this user
I'm a story teller. Words come easy to me. As a writer that makes it natural for me. I tend to write a lot.

As a result, the idea of content curation hasn't been of much interest to me. Until now.

I have taken on a project to add to the curation category of the blog on a new website I have been developing with an associate. Can you have a look at my first post (much shorter than I am used to!) and tell me your thoughts?

http://wordpressbusinessnetwork.com/curation/cornerstone-content/

It seems far too little but, then, isn't it about the "other" post? A little guidance from the pros please.

@Rev

You want comments on your lede into the article?

If that is so ... your intro is too short to be caught up by search.

150 is the bear minimum in length ... probably more like 1024 characters to be exact ... 8-)

The title is too short --- just 2 words ... go for 60-70 characters.

An enticing image with caption is desirable ...

Instead of click on the link below ... Click on <insert article title> ....

I just read the article @Rev pointed us to.

I look a my content and ask the question, Should my cornerstone content be based upon nouns or verbs?

If nouns, I'd probably think the four components of Medicare Original, managed care (Medicare Advantage), fee for service (Medicare Supplement, and Prescription Drugs.

As verbs, perhaps learning what's right for me, avoiding the pitfalls, sleeping at night.

Perhaps mix the two?

Nouns. Phrases.... 3-4-5 word phrases.
