Hunger Games Lessons: "The Hanging Tree" is Not a Dance Song
Call me crazy, but I'm not going to dance to "The Hanging Tree" song.

Content Curation: The Art of a Curated Post [Infographic]
For content marketers that are looking to increase content production and save time, content curation is the answer. In addition, your audience will thank you for exposing them to new sources of 3 rd party, independent content.

Yes, and......Curating Vs. Stealing
One of the biggest compliments we can give to someone is to share their work. When someone writes a great post I share it on Twitter, post it on my Facebook wall, or share it out on Google+. Sometimes I even go old school and email it.
