Everyone should be a curator
Last updated: Apr 30, 2019
Some of my friends, notably H, are very good curators. Unfortunately she only shares her list on Messenger and not for the public. She often find great stuff and I learned a lot from them. I found it a little wasted. Sharing them publicly is a great way to archive those favorites things and initiate discussions with others.
What I found recently is that everyone can be a curator. If one finds something interesting, they can share it online and with others. It’s a foundation and a jumping-off point to write and start blogging, if one has no ideas to blog. Curating can be a hobby too, and it’s not such time-consuming as writing. That’s why my learning log is born, so even if I have nothing to write, I can just curate stuffs I enjoy reading and it becomes a post.
One needs to be a curator before becoming a creator. Just like drawing needs references, writers also need research and inspirations from other writers. Since I use Read-it-later apps and read more more blogs, I feel much more motivated to write. I’ve accumulated enough examples and references to start blogging.
