Slideshows and Maps
We have added a couple of new ways for you to put content on your blog.
The first is RockYou slideshows. RockYou makes it super easy to upload a bunch of photos and create a slideshow with captions and music. We eagerly await collections of your kids, kittens and favorite celebrities. Instructions for how to embed one of their slideshows are in our FAQ. You can also find a link to RockYou in the slideshow tab below the edit window where you compose your blog posts.
The second is a way for you to add maps to your blog using the Platial service. You create a map, drop it on your blog and then you and your readers can add markers and comments to the map. It’s a great way to collaboratively figure out where to find the cheapest gas or the best beer in town. Their maps can be added to your blog’s sidebar using the Platial Mapkit widget. To try it simply go to the Sidebar Widgets section of your blog, grab their widget and follow the instruction in the widget’s configuration link.
