Editor’s Choice: Online Publishing Platforms
July 19, 2010
Issuu: For those of you who create zines and newsletters, Issuu allows you to publish them online for free. Just save your document as a PDF and Issuu will upload it as a digital edition that actually opens up like a real magazine. This site is also nice to check out how others are using design elements in their work. You are sure to be inspired.
Wix: Looking to make a website for your photojournalist portfolio? Wix makes creating a sleek flash website easy and for free. You can choose from different templates or compile widgets and slideshow styles yourself.
WordPress: Yes, there’s blogger & tumblr, but let’s face it: Wordpress is the bogger’s choice. Here, there’s more memory and more theme choices that get update once in a while. The dashboard makes it easier to organize your media and track the stats of your blog.
Vimeo: Although Youtube has more users, Vimeo has better video quality and less inappropriate content to traffic your feeds. The types of videos here are more creative and aren’t flooded with too many amateur vloggers.
