Apture: Super Links

April 30, 2009 | 3 Comments

Thanks to Cheryl McLaughlin for this link to a demo video on Scobleizer.com to a way-cool service (free to small-time bloggers) called Apture, which “makes it easy to add contextual images, videos, reference guides, links, maps, music, news, documents and books to your blog to create a connected media experience that keeps readers engaged on your site.”

By the way, I can’t think of a better way to get up to speed on “new media” than by picking Cheryl’s brain.

    Thanks for the post! This is Tristan from Apture (that’s me in the video). We’re really excited what Apture can do for travel bloggers who want to make remote places come to life. Check out this demo page for more examples of what Apture can do for travel:
