I received questions regarding An Easy FLIPBOARD guide for bloggers, from my Facebook SIPB members, so this is how I went about it.

Flipboard, Pinterest, and in a way Mix to me are all of similar nature.  They have minor differences, but let’s look at Flipboard for now.

To get started, you have to download the correct free Flipboard app!

  1. Flipboard for Android
  2. Flipboard for Apple iPhone and iPad 
  3. Flipboard for Windows 

Now that you have set up your app, I would suggest that you start with the following

Decide on an appropriate username, that will resonate with your readers and followers.

Be sure that it is sensible and easy for them to recognize you and your blog.  I used my blog name for continuity and I also used the same profile picture.  In fact, all my social media platforms have the same profile picture.

The next step would be to create your own magazines


To add a new magazine

Click on the “create magazine” and fill out the prompts

Update the cover

Delete this test magazine

Go to settings and then delete the magazine

Find stories to flip

That done, then you need to source and start finding posts to flip into your newly created magazine by clicking on the + button.

Flip content from your Web browser into your magazine using the bookmarklet. Flipboard’s bookmarklet adds to your magazine-making toolbox.

Watch on YouTube Introducing Flipboard for the Web

To find interesting articles to flip, be sure to utilize the Flipboard search function. Type any word, phrase, or hashtag into the search box for relevant articles and then flip those into your newly created magazines

Use an attractive cover

As Flipboard will by default use the most recent photo from an article that you flipped for the cover, so it will change as you flip new stories into each magazine.
