Curate Your Favorite Links Into a Weekly Email Newsletter with RefreshBox

Curate Your Favorite Links Into a Weekly Email Newsletter with RefreshBox | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

RefreshBox enables people to subscribe and create weekly 5-link-collection newsletters of their weekly professional best reads, tools or resources."

Robin Good's insight:



Refreshbox offers a good opportunity for anyone wanting to warm up to content curation without needing to invest a truckload of time.

The new free service allows you to easily pick any webpage or resource you find online, and to add your personal title and description /commentary to it, while saving to a draft newsletter that will be sent out to your readers once a week.

Contrary to what is suggested on the "What's This" page on the Refreshbox site, I strongly recommend that you do not just pick but also introduce and contextualize the gems you find, that's the real-value you can provide, while Refreshbox takes care of providing free-of-charge:

1. a web page for your curated newsletter(s),

2. a searchable hub where others can find it and

3. an easy-to-use subscription and distribution service without asking you anything in return.


Refreshbox allows you to place up to 5 links in each newsletter edition, and to hook up to other services (e.g.Product Hunt) to pick up your likes and preferences automatically and add them to your curated newsletter draft.


Excellent tool to warm-up to content curation by picking and collecting great resources to distribute via email.

A Curated Newsletter of Little Gems: VLS a Very Short List

A Curated Newsletter of Little Gems: VLS a Very Short List | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



VLS, or VeryShortList is an email newsletter and website, that brings in each daily issue a few selected high-value resources from a different human curator.


Each day of the week has a color and a theme.

Each edition of VSL lists three unique resources on that theme.
See: http://www.veryshortlist.com/about/  


An excellent and well tested example of curation at work, VLS is alive since 2006 and the quality of its curation work allow for a discrete sponsorship presence to support this unique quality publication.

Does this answer your question about whether the web can be hand curated or not?
