A Cool And Easy Way To Show Off Blogs

Written by Mark of MeAndMyDrum | Fave MAMD | Subscribe to MAMD

There are a few posts I’ve written here where I’ve mentioned the phenomenal bookmarking service call Diigo. It’s something I use all the time. And when I do, I’m making a copy to two other bookmarking sites at the same time just for safe keeping.

The folks at Diigo have pushed the envelope a little farther with something they’ve recently announced call WebSlides. The reasons for using such a service are numerous, but the one I see being used the most is for bloggers to highlight other sites.

Another use is to create a presentation about your own blog for visitors to get to know about your place. It might be a nice addition to your sidebar or About page.

A presentation is very simple to make. While in your Diigo account, you select the sites you want to include and save them to a list. You can then add an audio file for background music or narration if you like.

Readers can adjust the speed at which they move from site to site. They can pause it or even click on the sites provided in a list at their own pace — all without having to create a Diigo account of their own.

I’ve explained more in my own presentation, so click the button below and take it for a spin. (Btw, yes, that’s me narrating. :) )

WebSlides

The sites I’ve included in this presentation are:

Brown Thoughts
Ordinary Folk
Pink Internet Marketing
ShanKri-la
Revellian.com
Kyle’s Cove
Christy’s Coffee Break
The Sapheyerblu Review
Blog About Your Blog
Garry Conn dot Com
BlogsWeLuv

    Mark, that’s an awesome way to show some link love as well as show off your blog. Very effective than just linking to sites.

    Appreciate the link love and I really digged the narration. Great job man!

    @Matt: thank you sir! I’m definitely going to plan another of these.

    @Maggie: Hi Maggie from Diigo! You’re always so helpful on the forums. I’m glad you took the time to drop a comment here. I really appreciate all that you guys do, and please know that you have a strong supporter of your service as I’ve talked about it a few times here and on my other blogs. Keep it up!

    Your welcome and it’s ok that you didn’t see me way up there at the top of the list. Really, I’m ok. (sniff, sniff).

    LOL, joking. And ironically, I’ve noticed a few more people stopping by my blog thanks to you.

    I had to search through the pings to my blog on Technorati because I could not remember the name of this or where I saw it… So cool. I need it. Today. Thanks!
