The very internet itself was created on the foundation of linking, sharing, and recommending good content from other sources on the web. Curation means finding good, well-written, and highly relevant material for our readers.
We value good content for our readers. In that spirit we will often curate images and information from top quality sources on the web.
By choosing content from your site, we think it was outstanding in some way and we are giving it our vote of approval. This means we give it our highest recommendation, and we encourage our readers to view your content on your website with a direct link back your source material.
Our curation is designed to send our readers to your site so you get new visitors exposed to your top quality content.
We want our readers to discover and visit your content, and your website. We want you to be more than pleased that we quoted, referenced or utilized your content. If there is an image or link that we use on our blog that belongs to you and you do not want us to curate content from your web site, simply contact us, and request that it be taken down. You can find more information in our DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) policy and take down procedure.
We will quickly comply with your take down request, and put you on our list of sites never to excerpt from.
Most publishers and websites are extremely happy to receive additional exposure and readership for their content as a result of our curation.
We excerpt your content the exact same way we hope others will curate our content. If you like a story on our site, feel free to excerpt it as generously as you wish. In return please just give us clear credit, link back to the original page on our site, and some encouragement for interested readers to visit our original web page.
Sharing and curation and excerpting standards are still evolving online. Our standards of curation may very well differ from yours.
If you want us to be even more generous with links and credit let us know. If you feel your story has had too much excerpted, let us know. We will fix it rapidly.
