Fun (and free) publishing tools — anyone can be an editor

So being a blogger doesn't appeal to you. NP. Not all publishing tools require that you create content (write, photograph, make videos, etc.). Many of the emerging tools are about aggregating, organizing and publishing. You can be a “beat reporter” in HoCo by using some of these free tools, knowing your hashtags and understanding a bit about editing and story-telling. Many of these tools are surprisingly simple to use and they all have a free version, or at least a free trial. What a great compliment to your blogging repetoire, or perhaps even better, for your friends and neighbors who are community-focused but not wanting to blog. Have you seen Scoop.It? What about Storify? RebelMouse? Or Smore.com?

And speaking of those hashtags, here's a helpful list of #HoCoHashtags
