10 sites for creating digital newspapers

I came across an interesting list on one of the blogs I follow. They found 10 sites that will help you create and or distribute a digital newspaper.  (It’s worth noting that I’m using a pretty broad definition of newspaper here.)

  1. Issuu – One of the most popular and successful online digital magazine creators/publishers around, with a very nice user interface.
  2. Yudu – Upload a document or PDF to create an online magazine that can be emailed our or embedded into a site.
  3. Openzine – Very user friendly site with an abundance of templates and layouts to create a professional-looking magazine and share online.
  4. NewsCred – Create a terrific looking online newspaper in 5 minutes, similar to Openzine.
  5. Scribd – A very popular Web 2.0 site for creating online content and publishing.
  6. Fodey – A fun site to create a newspaper and then download to print out or put on a blog or site.
  7. Zinepal – A great way to bring the news to students by “clipping” online articles. This is a wonderful site for those making the move to ebook readers.
  8. Paper.li – A fantastic site to turn Twitter into an online readable magazine.
  9. Guzzle.it – Is a news aggregator that puts online news in one customizable place.
  10. Crayon – Create a professional-looking newspaper with this nice online creator. There are several options to choose from, so it has a bit of a higher learning curve.
  11. Mygazines

P.S. Can anyone add to the list? I’d like to see how long it can get.

  1. Nice post and I have often used Newscred. The best part of it is its so simple to use. Your news not only have to be rich but also very presentable with proper breaks.

    I have also used http://www.bulletlink.com and found that it too was good. I wish they come up with a free version as well. Allthesame, good one.

    Cheers.

  2. The site glogster.com is also a great site if one just needs to make a poster. With a little creativity and effort, one can make a front page of a newspaper with it. Can add on animations, pictures, and text. Also can look at other people’s creations and “borrow” their ideas.
