What is a Curation Commentary and what is the right approach to an effective commentary?

This is the 4 part in a series on Content Curation. You can find the other posts at the below links:

By now I am sure you would have understood what curation is all about and also about the importance of commentary in an effective content curation strategy.

Curation is all about engaging your readers by providing them all the content that they are looking for, at one place and in one simple readable format.

And commentary is the value add that you do to the content that you are presenting to your readers.

What is an effective method of writing a curation commentary?

In this episode of the DKSpeaks Podcast, we will be discussing about the different types of curation commentary.

Effective Curation Commentary Styles

Curation is content aggregation. You are finding the best content from around the web and posting it at a single place for your readers. This is not a very difficult thing to do and there could be many others who will be doing the same thing.

So how do you stand out from the crowd?

Another aspect is about adding value to the content that you have curated. Your readers are not coming to your site just to read a bunch of links that you might have added to a post.

They would be interested in knowing what is so special about that link and what is your thought about the information in the post that the link leads to.

This is what commentary does in curation.

Commentary is about adding your thoughts about the content that you have just curated. And in this episode that is what we are discussing.

Here are some of things that we will be discussing in today’s episode –

  • 4 different commentary styles for effective content curation
  • Adding value and standing out from the content curation crowd
  • How to ensure your commentary is effective
