Establish authority by aggregating news

Services like Friendfeed make it easy to pull together information from a lot of different sources. So if you’re looking for a way to become an authority in your field, find the 5-10 top sources in that field, and pull their feeds into one location — on your own website. You’ll earn the goodwill of those other sources by linking to their content. And you’ll gradually become the 1-stop shop for anyone looking for information in your field.
The widget above is an aggregation of news from Missouri sources, including the Twitter feeds of some individual reporters who are covering the legislature. In an hour, you can create exactly the same thing for yourself, whether you write about child advocacy, health care, or sports.
