Content Curation and Publishing Platform via micro-Websites

A FREE content curation and publishing platform that works by copying and pasting links. Create a personal website, promote your business, and much more! Yes, it's another startup that I'm working with. This website, for example, took about 1 minute to build using FYI. I think you'll like it if you ever have a need to curate a collection of pages for clients or colleagues. Or just to create your own startup page. Way cooler than bookmarks. :-)
