If writing’s your thing then you’ll know only too well how much of a challenge it can be to get your work out there into the public domain - it’s the same whether you write poetry or political opinion pieces. Whilst the increase in self publishing and blogging platforms have of course helped, growing an audience for your work can still be a major issue for many aspiring writers. It’s an issue which our latest Startup of the Week is aiming to address.
Scriggler is a writing, blogging and debating platform which not only provides a platform for writers to showcase their work, but also helps them test their work. Writers can use the platform to publish their work and then analyse the type of audience they are attracting. Scriggler provides writers with detailed stats on audience interaction and demographics, thereby helping them get a better insight into how their writing is being received. Experimenting with a new style or genre? This is the perfect place to get feedback.
Of course as much as Scriggler is aimed at helping writers promote their work, it’s also a discovery platform for anyone interested in finding new writers or in finding articles or pieces on particular areas of interest.
For a reader, it’s very user friendly and whether you are simply searching for writing on a particular area or want to curate your own ‘club’ of publications on a particular theme, you can do it with ease.
It’s admittedly early days for this platform and its true value will come as its community grows. Scriggler’s primary objective however has to be admired. After all, helping writers to gain new audiences for their work can only be a good thing...
