I’ve had a relatively high curation rate as a new writer. I think 4 out of 6 stories that I wrote with the hope of curation in mind. There may be something to said for the tags, and I think heavily adding citations helps. Having said that, there are some stories I wrote that I thought would be curated, but weren’t.
I can’t say though that curation drove traffic to my publications. I think most readers find my stuff boring. 🤭
