Zinepal showed off its web-to-zine publishing power at Launch Party in downtown Vancouver on Thursday night.
Zinepal's application allows you to publish zines by easily dragging and dropping content from your favorite blogs, sites and feeds. You can even create a recurring zine, delivered as often as you'd like. So for those who need their feed hard-copy style, Zinepal makes the process simple. Bloggers and social media mavens can easily convert their content for distribution to all their friends and fans.
Who else would use Zinepal? The Zinesters have some suggestions:
- Busy Readers - If you don't have time to sort through content online to find the good stuff, then just use zinepal.com to get a zine with good content selected by someone else.
- Independent Journalists and Editors - If you have a keen interest in alternative media, then you can use zinepal.com to start publishing your own zines. Maybe as a community newspaper or focused on a specific topic such as politics.
- Travellers and Commuters - Don't have Internet access where you are going? No problem. Use zinepal.com to take great content offline. Read it on the train, on the plane or maybe just on a bench in your favorite park.
- Special Interest Groups - You can use zinepal.com to publish zines with stories that support your interests. By publishing your zine on zinepal.com you make it available to a larger audience.
- Businesses - Use zinepal.com to create custom news briefs and distribute them to your staff.
