Friday Favourites ~ 10 ways to use #Flipboard to Promote your Blog.

I have decided to share the features a little differently from now on. I will be now publishing YOUR posts in a weekly Flipboard magazine. If you aren't familiar with Flipboard, it is a mobile app that allows you to collect and share articles, blogs posts, news items etc into an online 'magazine'. Later in the post I'll be sharing the 10 ways to use #Flipboard to Promote your Blog.

Flipboard allows you to discover new content to share on various social media channels. Flipboard has quickly become one of the top choices for feed reading on devices such as smartphones, tablets and desktops.

Flipboard supports social media channels like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram, Tumblr, amongst others! You just have to link your networks to your Flipboard account and then information will be streamed for you.

Here are 10 ways to use #Flipboard to Promote your Blog.

The Flipboard creators have also introduced a couple of tools to help get your content to Flipboard faster and to expand your reach. If you would like to learn more about using Flipboard check out this post "Easy Tools for Bloggers to Bring Content to Flipboard" from the Flipboard Blog.


There are heaps of articles on the web on how and why to use Flipboard but these two posts helped me enormously. The first one is from The Edu-Blogger (I first started using Flipboard in my role as a teacher) and it explains how to set up an account, curate content and share your content with others. Read "The flip-a-holic’s ultimate guide to subscribing, curating and sharing using Flipboard" here.
