How To Use Flipboard

Flipboard is a social media platform where users create their own virtual magazines and add articles to them. With over 100 million users, it’s no wonder why I have seen a sudden upsurge of traffic on my blog from Flipboard.

The following figures speak for themselves, although I should add that I’ve only started using Flipboard within the last few days. Up until then, Flipboard was nowhere in sight on this list.

The good folk at Flipboard have been in contact with me after I published my recent article on how to add a Flipshare sharing button to a WordPress blog. They thanked me for posting the article and asked if there was anything else they could help with. I asked them for a link to an article that detailed how Flipboard works. They kindly sent me a link to a page that shows new users how to use Flipboard. Click on the following source link and start ‘flipping’.

Not only that, but they also sent me a link to their YouTube channel where you can watch several excellent videos on how to use Flipboard.

Janice Wald, at Mostly Blogging, has also published several articles on Flipboard, including this one which I found through Flipboard.

  1. This is a great post which I’ve just found. Flipboard is something I signed up to ages ago but with one thing & another I just haven’t had the time to really understand it properly so thank you for this, I’ll be revisiting this in a few weeks when hopefully some of that ‘Time’ comes my way 😏😊

  2. Hi Hugh,
    You mentioned in a comment to me today your guest author Ivan had a theory about Flipboard traffic. Can I see the article please? Can I have the link? Thanks,
    Janice

  3. Hi Hugh, I am going to feature your post on The Blogger’s Pit Stop on Friday. Congratulations.

  4. Hi Hugh!
    Thanks for bringing your post to the Blogger’s Pit Stop last week. Thank you again for linking to me in your article and all your support.
    Janice, Pit Stop Crew

      1. Question: Nothing to do with Flipboard:
        I notice your site is https. Was it difficult to change over from http?
        Did you follow instructions you can send me?
        What happened to your articles starting with http ?
        Thanks,
        Janice

        1. Hi, Janice. My blog is a WordPress.Com blog, so they did it all for me. They published a post about the change, quite a while ago, informing their users that they’d be doing all the work and that we wouldn’t notice any difference (apart from the extra ‘s’ in the address bar). I checked my older posts and they are also all showing that extra ‘s’ in the address bar.
