For this first story on Storify, all I’m going to really do is introduce the platform and embed some videos and tutorials that do just that. Hopefully some people will find this interesting and start to use the tool also.
I am very much a novice to storify, so I have no idea really as to how this ‘story’ will appear when it is published. From what I understand it can be edited after it is published, so perhaps a bit of polishing will be required once it is complete.
OK, I published the story and had a quick look at it. It actually doesn’t look too bad and it looks quite good actually.
I thought I might add something of a product review in this story also. Storify is very easy to use and can be a very helpful tool for bloggers in particular I think. The learning curve for Storify is very quick and you’ll be quite proficient in its use very quickly. If you watch the ‘How To Use Storify’ video embedded in this particular story, that will will also enhance your ability quite quickly (though the appearance of the platform has changed a bit since the tutorial was put together). I’ll certainly be using Storify a fair bit from now on I would think.
The other really good thing about Storify from my perspective is that I can very quickly publish my stories to my WordPress Blogs straight from the application. So that certainly is a fantastic plus in my opinion.
