In addition to publishing print books and eBooks, there are many ways to publish your content digitally. One of the hottest trends for fast and easy digital publishing is through “content curation!”

Content curation involves discovering content, in the form of interesting articles for example, and compiling an excerpt and URL to this content.

While there are several paid services available, I prefer two free services. One of these services is an online magazine called ScoopIt and the other is an online newspaper called Paper.Li.

ScoopIt allows you to easily draw in content from across the Internet, and create an attractive, online digital magazine, based on your topic or specific keywords. As content is curated, you have the option of sending out a notice and link to your Scoop.It publication, across a variety of social networks. provides the opportunity to not only curate content, but to automate both content curation and the posting of links to your publication, on the social networks. In essence, with, you can “set it and forget it.”

Head on over to check out these powerful tools and give them a try! You’ll discover a clever way to gather relevant content and your readers will be grateful to you for doing the foot work in rounding up content they are hungry for.
