@patricia-redsicker I have one successful weekly post that is just a curation of 25 top posts from the week in blogging, business, personal development, SEO, and social media because those are the topics my readers are interested in.
I think for the most part, when people come to your blog, they really want to read your insight into your area of expertise plus your suggestions on what is great content in that niche. My posting frequency is (on good weeks) 2 – 3 posts per week with my own content (or a guest blogger) and 1 that is curation.
That said, curation / list posts can be huge traffic generators. On some sites I contribute to, I usually do a curation post one out of every ten posts.
