A dream has come true again - I wanted to become a journalist and now I am editor in chief in a new eMagazine called The Mini Treasures Daily. :)
How do I have time for yet a new project?
I don't! :)
My social media friends started to use Paper.li already some time ago and I have often been referred in their mags. Before I started using Paper.li myself (that is two days ago) I was always amazing about their papers - how do they have time for that?
My mag is generated every day automatically based on a list I maintain in Twitter - it contains people who are tweeting about dolls, dollhouses and miniatures. The Paper.li services somehow analyzes the tweet they are doing and creates a mag out of them. It always gives the source for the news so people in the mag may get new Twitter followers.
I am now waiting the third mag to be published, the earlier ones can be found from the archive: first and second.
I think this service is new for many of you and it may raise confusion about the rights. Tweets are public and they can be used where ever: you can talk about tweets in your blog, in Facebook, in forums etc. The important thing is the sources - do not take credit from something you have not created yourself.
I hope you enjoy the new mag :). And if you know good tweeps to be added to the list, tell me!
If you want out of my mag tell me and I'll remove you from the list. Other option is to block me - as I guess I can't list people who have blocked me.
I was asked if I make money with the mag. No I don't but of course somebody is - paper.li is selling stupid ads to mags. I guess if I started paying for the service I could get rid of them. Money makes the world go round and every service provider (Facebook, Twitter, Google) looks for opportunities to make more money from the content we are spreading all over the web or by selling our data to advertisers.
