One late night as I was cruising one of the crop of technology based sites I came across an article for newly formed ‘social networking’ site flavors.me. At first I wasn’t sure whether it would be advantageous for me as a fashion blogger but curiosity got the best of me so I set up an account for myself. Flavors.me is basically a landing page which puts all of your online presences in one place.
The service is easy to set up even for those of us without a knowledge of html or coding. You fill in a very simple sign up form, and you can add any of 15 online profiles including Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and your blogs RSS feed. Then you’re ready to start customizing the look of your site.
All of your content is transferred onto your Flavors.me page for easy access the templates are fairly simplistic and you can even purchase a custom url and upgrade for more style choices. If you click on one of the online profiles the content of that particular social network/blog will quickly come into view; it’s all very professional looking. Even with a free account you have the ability to pick a colour scheme, change the layout and add your own background image. For an example of what a page looks like see mine pictured above.
How is this advantageous for bloggers? Well within days of setting up my page I found that flavors.me was in my top ten referrers and it has stayed there in the weeks that have passed since.
Are any of you using flavors.me too? How has it effected your blog traffic?
