Storytlr Creates Stories Out Of Your Online Activity

03Nov08

Storytlr gives you a fast and easy way to create a microblog to share posts from sites like Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube.  You can then create stories to share, using certain content, during specific periods of time.

Getting started is really easy.  The username that you choose will be the URL of your storytlr page.  You can see mine here.  If you have your own domain, you can use that as well.  After you sign up, just enter in the user names for the social networking sites that you use.  Currently, the only supported sites are Delicious, Flickr, Google Reader, Lastfm, Picasa, Qik, Seesmic, Twitter, YouTube, and Digg.  Storytlr will then grab everything you’ve posted to these sites and organize them by date on your storytlr page.  Everything you’ve done on these sites will be listed on each day you posted and can be searched through and filtered by month.  Visitors can also comment on each post and you can make items private or public with one click.  You can customize the way your page looks and even choose different widgets to add to the sidebar.

Now comes the storytelling aspect of storytlr.  Next to the lifestream tab on your page, you’ll see a tab that says stories.  This is where you can share items you’ve posted to various sites, in more of a storyboard layout.  Just give your story a name, like “My Summer Vacation”, and then enter in the dates you want included in your story.  Next, choose the sites you want content pulled from, like Flickr and YouTube.  Storytlr will create a story out of everything you posted to those sites during those dates.  You can choose to make these public or private and choose to make certain items private as well.

If that wasn’t enough, storytlr also allows you to post status updates, write entire blog posts, share links, photos, and even mp3s, right from your account.  To learn more about storytlr, check out the screencast below:
