■ UPDATE: March 15, 2016 – This will make the 1st update for this blog post. Many sites offer features when they are just getting started. They offer free plans and let users learn how to get the most from the tools. You know when the site owners providing the service is enjoying a certain amount of success because they start making changes and free users have some of the free stuff. It’s no biggie. That’s what business is about! It’s a win-win situation as I see it. I get to learn. They get to grow. At any rate:
- “Beginning March 8, Paper.li made an important product change that may have had an impact on your free paper.” – See more at: https://blog.paper.li/benefits-affected-free/#sthash.bBnHEXLU.dpuf
The changes were significant but nothing that I can’t live with and work with. Paper.li still allows users to publish free newsletters and that’s fine by me for now. Maybe when I start enjoying a little more monetary success, I’ll be able to upgrade my publications. 🙂
Do you like the idea of generating your own online newspaper?
The question can also be rephrased or restated. In other words:
- Do you like the idea of presenting your blog posts in an easily readable format, similar to a newspaper or a newsletter?
Well when “Adventures of Superman” TV series aired, back in my day – watching Lois and Clark and Jimmy Olsen and Chief Perry White and all the effort that went into “getting the story”, it gave me the impression that publishing the “Daily Planet” was a really hard job!
Grew up believing that generating a newspaper or even a newsletter was way too time-consuming and tiring. Not any more. Paper.li is a tool that helps you do just that. It is so easy to use I created four papers. The “news stories” practically write themselves.
Basically, the tool helps you gather stories or material about things of interest to you or your Readers or Subscribers . You select sources from RSS feeds, Twitter, Google, etc. When the paper is published a notification can be automatically posted to your social networks or sent via eMail.
My first paper – “Cmoneyspinner Weekly” – was a test. Set it up so that each issue publishes every Monday. Wanted to collect information that related to work at home endeavors that might be of interest to home business entrepreneurs, self-employed people, small business owners, and work-at-home parents.

So pleased with the finished product, decided to generate four more newspapers.

It has great historical value because back issues are maintained. Archives for my first paper date back to 2013 (although some of the links have changed since). It’s fun to casually peruse articles for yourself like you would a Sunday paper. Anybody can subscribe to it just like a regular paper.
