|For several years, since getting into publishing online and working on blogs and a lot of other projects, I haven't found something quite simple yet unavailable.|
I want to be able to curate and share the good things I find online. For example, I want to collect the cool podcasts I find every half year, organize the news stories I find several of daily in a few categories of interest, share interesting websites I find.
I've used WordPress a ton, and all the big social media platforms, but none of these do it.
I want basically to be able to search the web as usual, and when I find a story I want to include, click something, have it fetch the post info, edit the title / description / image if I want, or not, and pick the category I want to include it in on my page, or the section of my page I want to send it to, and that's it. I also want to be able to fine-tune it from its own back-end / admin, and give others access.
To the user, it would appear like a news front page, with categories and the most recent articles I've sent there, as well as sections for podcasts, music, film, blogs, nice websites to check out, etc.
If there were a platform like this, I think a lot of people could use it to curate web content, and it would be easier to find people who's tastes were like your own and follow their interests on their page.
Anyone built one already / one in the works?
