Leaping into Online Publishing

Tomorrow, 29th February marks the leap year, but it is also one of the busiest days of the weeks for me. This entry, posted on the eve of the leap, is my contribution to 29th February. 

As someone who has taught writing skills for different levels and contexts, one of my main concerns is for the learner/writer to express their voice. What better way to express oneself through digital media?

Carbonmade is a free  online portfolio, especially designed for graphic designer, photographers, fashion designers and artists in general. Whether students need a portfolio for their work or simply if you have an artistic hobby, Carbonmade is simple to use and to present your work. 

Booktype  is a free, open source platform which give you the opportunity to publish anything you like. It's also a community where you can create profiles, join groups, post messages and other features of online communities. 

Magnt is yet another blogging platform;  there is a free option as well as upgrading to Pro account.

Youblisher turns your PDFs into a magazine with flipping pages, is free and definitely worth looking into as well. 

Whether you already blog or publish online, remember to celebrate the leap year by contributing to Feb29th.net, the world's biggest blogging initiative, open to students and participants from all around the world. 

Happy 29th February to all!
