Curation Policy

Here at HealthDrivesWealth.com we take curation seriously.

The internet was built and founded on linking, sharing, and recommending great stories from other sources on the web.

Curation, to us, means finding interesting, well-written, and highly appropriate articles for our readers.

By choosing an article from your site, we are giving it our vote of approval. This not only means that we excerpt your article, we also give it our highest recommendation, and we direct our readers … in every case … to view your article on your website.

Our curation is designed to send our readers to your site and your articles.

We curated and excerpted your article because it was outstanding in some way.

If you for whatever reason you have, do not want us to excerpt and share your story, simply contact us, with a request to take down your story.

We will do so without any questions, if that is what you want, and will also put you on our list to never excerpt again.

The majority of the emails we receive are from publishers that love us sharing their information, their stories, and messages.

It’s our goal to always bring our readers great information.

EXCERPTING POLICY

Most online publishers recognize the value of having their stories and articles

  • quoted
  • commented on
  • debated
  • discussed
  • linked to
  • new readers encouraged to the articles

The goal is to bring great information as well as extend your reach to those who are interested in your content.

Social sharing shifts the power back to the freeing purpose of the internet and thus gives you more exposure as well.

This is why when we excerpt content we give credit to you and link back to your site as well.

WE WANT A WIN WIN FOR EVERYONE

Standards, practices, and legal decisions about “Fair Use” are still evolving online. Our standards are higher than the merely legal.

We hold ourselves to much higher standards than “Fair Use.”
We want “Enlightened Use.”

If you are not happy to be excerpted and linked to by our site, just let us know.

We will take action immediately.

WE EXCERPT YOUR STORIES THE WAY WE HOPE OTHERS WILL CURATE OUR CONTENT.

Specifically, if you like a story on our site, we are pleased and gratified.

Please feel free to excerpt it as generously as you wish. In return please just give us clear credit, links back to the article, and some encouragement for interested readers to visit the original article.

Take as much of our content as you think will inform and entertain your readers.

Just link, credit, and encourage the reader to visit the original site.

  • That is what we do.
  • That is what built the internet.
  • That is what social sharing is about.

Everyone benefits when sharing is done respectfully and honestly.

HERE IS WHAT WE WILL NEVER DO.

  • We never take your entire article. We never re-publish without full credit, links and sending you readers.
  • We never republish an RSS feed verbatim.
  • We never excerpt without the intention of sending you more traffic.
  • We always change the headline, and add context, meaning, and analysis to your articles.

OUR GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR EXCERPTS PUBLISHED ON THIS SITE ARE…

  • never more than about 30 – 40% of any article
  • never more than one article from any site in any one day
  • never more than what is needed to communicate the essence of the article

MOST IMPORTANTLY…

Sharing and curation and excerpting standards are still evolving online. Our standards of delight may very well differ from yours.

If you want us to be even more generous with links and credit let us know. If you feel your story has had too much excerpted, let us know.

We will fix it to your standards instantly.
