Daily News, Twitter, paper.li and big bad liberal Gawker!


Retire In Style Daily News...front page!

Oh my gosh!  I just read Gawker so I cannot be held responsible for what I might do.  That blog just blows my sock off almost every day.  I don't know if you should read it or not.  It is just a tad big bad liberal talk...but there is always a lot of unvarnished truth.  I follow Gawker on twitter...that is important for you to know right up front.

I started an online daily newspaper with an application called paper.li.  It is free to all my readers, their friends and...well...everyone.  It is called Retire In Style Daily News.  I don't know how paper.li works but I love who ever designed it.  They are beyond good.  In a simple explanation (no technical talk here) they said:

Paper.li is a content curation service.

  • It enables people to publish newspapers based on topics they like and treat their readers to fresh news, daily. 
  • We believe that people (and not machines) are the ones qualified to curate the content that matters most. 
  • We also think that these same people can greatly help their own communities to find their way through this “massive content world” we live in. We’re here to help!

Every day, around the world, millions of articles are featured on Paper.lis, benefiting millions of readers. We are just at the beginning of an exciting new adventure and we think we’re on to something good.
We love the semantic web, we respect our content creators, we strive for simplicity, and we thrive on feedback.
They take the content from my twitter account and compile a newspaper for me.  I name the paper, rearrange a few elements and the rest happens without much ado.
Just be warned, a Gawker gossip article may appear and I cannot be held responsible for their take on life.  Remember, it is good to read things you do not agree with...I said hesitantly.
Like I said, it is simply magic of the internet kind.  I hope you take a look and then follow.  I have selected content that should interests bloggers, retirees and writers.
Note:  The free online newspaper is published once a day so content is always kept current.    I hope that is not too much. I can also do it weekly.   We will see. What do you think? Leave a comment or fire me an email (retireinstyleblog@gmail.com)

  1. I have used the paper creation service for quite awhile now and have come to depend on it. In fact, they produce two different daily papers for me, one more oriented toward the blogging crowd than the other paper, which is more focused on retirement.

    Paper.li pulls from all Twitter feeds that have content that matches the various hash tags and categories I have selected for each paper. Then, I take items from the papers and use them as the basis for my Tweets to my followers each day.

    If you use the analytics setting it is easy to see which Tweets are read the most and which get re-tweeted. This is a handy tool to see what motivates your Twitter followers.

    Ppaer.li is a tremendous service that can be a very powerful promotional tool for you.
