I agree with Shannon. Curation is still relatively new, and no doubt they are still working it out. I’ve noticed a change even in a few months; the first articles I had curated were viewed a lot and quickly, and also had legs (the viewership continued for a couple of weeks or longer). Today it seems like Curation only provides a few hundred views, and it only lasts for a couple of days. I have put in a lot of time promoting my work on LinkedIn, Reddit and Twitter, and while the results aren’t fantastic, they are something. I think ultimately it comes down to having a personal brand and continuing to write.
