EDIT: 2 days later and my readership has almost doubled!
So. I’ve got
28,000 51,000 readers of my online gaming magazine — a Flipboard titled On Gaming.
Holy Cow!!!! When I started my Flipboard I had never realized it would become this successful. I’m totally humbled and blown away.
What’s a FlipBoard?
If you follow me on Facebook (and if not, why not? ) you likely have seen that I’ve been posting or crossposting more articles to FlipBoard, a gorgeously laid out magazine format curation system for content.
Flipboard is, quite simply, an online magazine that lets you take content you find online and group it into one online ‘magazine’. Similar to what Pinterest lets you do with various image content. Flipboard originally launched on the iPhone and iPad, now is available for Android devices and Computers too. A very nifty platform. To quote the creators:
Millions of people use Flipboard to read and collect the news they care about, curating their favorite stories into their own magazines on any topic imaginable. Now magazines created by our readers, from Nepal to Sauce and spread, can be shared and enjoyed on the Web by anyone, anywhere.
And why is it something you’d want to do?
Well, in my case, I love finding neat stuff and sharing it with others. And, having a successful Flipboard allows me to extend the reach of articles *I* write by simply including them in the appropriate Flipboard.
As well, having a popular Flipboard also enhances my ability to profile content I think is important.
So, if you’re so inclined, feel free to check out On Gaming, or any of the other magazines I curate, and let me know what you think! If you’ve got something you’d like me to share with my readers, just contact me. And if you start your own Flipboard magazine, then let me know too! I’d love to have a look!
