An Open Letter To Glogster

Dear Glogster,

You have forced me to use Scrapblog purely out of necessity and these are my three reasons why:

1# – In order to share photos and videos with my DP on a Glog page, I have to upload them all first.

Every time. I can’t reference links or embed code from other sites.

doesn’t feel as intuitive to use and certainly isn’t as pretty as you are (users just seem cooler on Glogster), but at least Scrapblog offers easy access to existing photo sites like Flickr and to YouTube videos. According to your G-Lab section, YouTube video sharing is 60% on it’s way but…


Why not be a step ahead? Until you, Glogster, offer the ability to use links and video from ANY SITE I WANT, I am not going to bother with you. I will have to accumulate G Points in my life in some other way.

I should point out that I am not completely dismissing you as a creative resource, Glogster. Teachers are excited about your educational possibilities. Meanwhile, young people on Glogster are making their own versions of ads/splash pages for products that they love. They are generating free advertising for companies in a way that speaks directly to their friends and peers. This is amazing. They are literally doing a buttload of free advertising for companies in a way that is potentially profitable on so many levels.
