To create a topic, mouseover the "My Topics" tab in the top bar then click on "Create a Topic" (http://www.scoop.it/theme/create) and follow the easy 3-step process.
1. Start with a topic you know well. What did you spend your time on lately? Think about your passions, your interest. Be precise: the more specific, the better. For example, use “freeride skiing” over “ski”.
2. Choose the language in which you’d like to receive your suggested contents from Scoop.it
3. Give relevant keywords defining your topic to crawl the web and suggest content to your topic based on these keywords. Take care to be accurate! But don’t worry, you’ll be able to edit them later.
