Hey everyone! I've been busy with NANOWRIMO, so my posts have not been on schedule, sorry about that, but I am back with a quick one about starting your own online newspaper, and it is soooo easy, FREE - and kind of fun too!!! The site I am talking about is http://www.paper.li.com. I just started an online newspaper about, of course, book marketing and promotion! You can find it at: http://paper.li/VeiledVirtues/1319553857
You can subscribe to papers you like and receive an email when it is published with a link to it.
Basically, it automatically populates your newspaper with articles from your pre-chosen twitterers, facebook, RSS feeds, google + users, and keywords on twitter and google +. You can choose how often to publish (daily, weekly, etc.) and when your paper is published, it automatically is promoted on twitter. You can go in and edit what content to delete or make your top story.
What to do: 1) decide what you want your newspaper to be about; 2) find awesome people on twitter and FB, etc. to add as your content; 3) publish and promote it!!!
You can even make it like your own weekly newsletter, by having it just follow you and your posts on Twitter, FB and google+. They also have a feature you can add then when you are on a page you want to include in your paper, you can automatically include it. It is sooooo easy!
Thoughts? Comments? Do you have a newspaper? If so, please shar your link!! Cheers! Jan
