speed blogging bonusDoes this sound familiar? You spend 3 hours researching a topic and writing about it on your blog. Then you spend another 30 minutes to an hour posting all over social media to get traffic to your blog post.

Maybe, just maybe, some people even visit your blog and leave comments or share the content with others.

And if you’re really lucky, they notice what else you’ve got on your site (like an email opt-in form or ad for your products or service or affiliate links) and take action there too.

But usually, that’s not how things go.

So, for most of us, blogging has become a chore. And that means we don’t do it. And the organic traffic to our sites slow to a halt. And then, before we know it, the last post on our blog was dated three years ago.

So how do you remedy this?

One solution that many MAJOR blogs use, is called “curation.” This is the practice of sharing other people’s content (along with full attributions and links back to the original source, of course).

There are many really great ways to do this, including collecting your favorite content together on sites like Feedly or NewsBlur.

These sites allow you to identify great content from around the web, from which you might take snippets, and incorporate them into a post where you comment on the content and, maybe even tie multiple points of view or examples of a particular topic together. But there is still a certain lack of efficiency in the process, as you still need to deal with a bit of on-page SEO and find ways to promote your curated posts.

That’s why I’m so excited about the possibilities offered by the new blog curation tool, Speed Blogging.

Imagine having a simple Google Chrome extension that allows you to instantly create a curation post from just about any site you visit online, including videos from sites YouTube or Vimeo, content from social media, images from just about any page on the web, and lots more. You can quickly build posts like the uber-popular Top 10 lists, and even create long-tail keyword SEO content within just a couple of minutes. And it’s all fully integrated with WordPress, Kalatu, Smart Member, and more.
