Content curation to me is like managing contents in my home. From a contextual perspective, it’s important to know that I live in a stacked townhouse (i.e., people live below me) in downtown Toronto and so I don’t have a lot of space for clutter and random junk. I evaluate everything that comes into my house. It’s gotta be purposeful or it won’t make the cut.
Below are some of the questions I use to evaluate items coming in and out of my home. I think they help with content curation too.
Evaluation criteria coming in:
- Is this item worthy to be in my house?
- What value does it bring?
- How much space does this item take up and am I willing to give up space for it?
- Can I access this item easily?
- Do I understand the context in which it will be used
Evaluation criteria for staying in:
- Is this item still relevant?
- When was the last time it was it used?
- Does it still bring value to me and my home?
- Should it be replaced?
- Is it time for it to go?
