Why not become a ‘curator’ with and create your own online magazine?

You have probably heard the word ‘curator’ being bandied around? ‘Curating’ is one of the latest buzzwords and that is what does. (I haven’t yet investigated but it could be similar). So, what happens is you join ( and choose a topic you would like information about. 
what is scoopit then crawls the Internet searching for articles based on the keywords you have given to your search topic.  You then curate by choosing which articles you would like to use in your magazine, and forms it into an attractive easy-to-read online magazine. 
What I LOVE about is that you can also follow topics that interest you. I follow 34 topics that interest me and keeps me informed in much the same way – a magazine type format for me to page through at leisure. Marvelous! When reading a all you do is click on a block and  it takes you to the original artecle.
So for example… this is how keeps me informed about the latest on my topics of choice.
