Basically, we host 4 different types of content here at Wisdom Pills. They are as follows:
1. Original Content
Unless otherwise noted, all of our content is original. These are articles, personal stories and posts from freelancers, regular contributors, or queries that we have accepted through our submissions portal. In each instance they are pieces that saw their first publication on www.wisdompills.com.
2. Classically Curated Content
These are articles that have been put together to fit the traditional model of “curated content”. They are thought-pieces that feature commentary (usually an intro and an outro, sometimes a passage in the middle) on a specific subject, along with 1 or more excerpts from outside articles to emphasize the point attempting to be made with the piece.
3. Featured Posts or Excerpts
These are submitted pieces from writers, bloggers and website owners who want to make use of our platform by having a previously written article or an excerpt from their book featured on our site. (You can do so as well here.) They also include a few particular writers we have approached ourselves.
4. Anectodes/Traditional Tales/Urban Legends/Articles
These are pieces we have deemed appropriate for long-term curation and form the undercurrent of our website. They may or may not feature an original commentary from us as an introduction, and, if applicable, are accompanied by a source link, either in the introduction or at the bottom, as follows:
If the piece is an anecdote or urban legend it will, in most cases, be followed by a short commentary detailing its origins, veracity, and links to further reading.
If it is a traditional tale, it will, at present, be without an annotation at the bottom; a book of these is forthcoming, and research is currently being done to detail the origins of these stories (which, in many cases, are truly “cross-cultural” and extremely challenging to narrow down). Each, however, has been re-told from the ground up and imbued with our brand’s particular flavor.
If it is an article, we always provide a simple source link that cites the original title (we often change the name so as not to disturb the SEO of the original), the author and the website of origin. These are almost always posted through a creative commons licence or with the written permission of the original author, but in certain extenuating cases they may not be. If you have contention with one or more of our articles, please see our DMCA/Removal notice.
