These brilliant individuals:


a) never curate an article that they haven’t read in full,

 

b) never support something they don’t believe in,


c) never get lazy.


How do you think they would look in the eyes of their fans if they judged content based only on a title and the first two paragraphs?


Lack of quality is the number one downfall of content curators.
