Online Publishing: Create Your Own Content

Issuu is a Web 2 tools that allows you to publish PDFs. You can produce the documents in any program that you like - I prefer PAGES on the Mac. Once you have created a stunning document to impress the world, simply log on to Issuu and upload your PDF. The whole process takes about 2 minutes and you now have a digital magazine style document. This can be embedded into a blog or onto your website.

FlipSnack is an online flipping book software that allows you to convert PDF documents into Flash page flip digital publications. It's the ideal solution for those who wish to embed a book, magazine, catalog, newspaper, portfolio or any other kind of document into a website or blog.

Once created, you can embed your flipping book collection, download them or share them on social networking websites such as Facebook.

P.S. With FlipSnack you can upload several documents at once, allowing you to embed not only one, but multiple page flip publications in the same Flash widget.

Wobook is an online solution for people who want to publish on the web through an interactive, 3D book. Any document can be turned into a wobook and made available to read online instantly. Wobooks can also be formatted and printed on-the-fly in a PDF format. A digital magazine powered by wobook is attractive, interactive and all sorts of rich media can be embedded in it! There, they can create or effortlessly turn their publications into a web oriented ebook or wobook. Develop your web communication! Create and publish all types of syndication: newspapers, digital magazines, brochures, e-catalogs, or e-books.

Surfboard: Websites turned into E-zine
Surfboard is a very cool service (similar to Flipboard on the iPad) that displays any website in a flippable newspaper-like display. All your different blog entries or pages are displayed and all the links stay alive. This makes the web reading experience a much more enjoyable one. This is a great Web 2 tool for everyone!
To use Surfboard all you have to do is enter the url of your favorite website and click "get surfing." That site will then be displayed in a manner that allows you to flip through the site's content without seeing the sidebar widgets and or advertisements.

For proper flippable display Surfboard requires the use of the latest versions of Chrome or Safari.

And if you have access to an iPad you could even try OnSwipe. Onswipe lets you provide a beautiful app like experience for your website on tablet and phone browsers. Onswipe is not an app and works in the browser with your existing content. You simply link the site and away you go. This is a quick and easy way to get your blog or website accessible by a iPad.
