The Benefits of a Fine-Tuned Paper.li


What do Hollywood, curated content and the 2012 Shorty Awards have in common? Paper.li publisher Natasha Younge!

Voting has begun for the 2012 Shorty Awards and we are excited to share that Natasha's The Younge Hollywood Blast Daily is a nominee for the Best Magazine in Social Media in the News and Media category.  

The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media and recognize the people and organizations who are producing real-time short form content across the social web.  While we can't take any credit for Natasha's nomination (that goes to her readers)  we certainly can share the excitement of her nomination for a Shorty -- and the fact that it is based on curated content in the form a of Paper.li. 

Natasha is an actress-preneur, writer and social media enthusiast. She uses Paper.li to discover industry trends, champion new talent, give back to her community and connect with peers.  


What's Natasha's secret for the nomination? By looking at her Paper.li we'd say…

  • Choosing the best content sources and news spotters that apply to her audience
  • Editing each edition of her Paper.li with love, making sure her readers are getting the rich and relevant blend of industry news they crave
  • Adding a personal touch with the Editor's note to greet her readers, making them feel at home
  • Rounding off the experience with a great custom background that ties into her passion  

Being nominated for an award is a great achievement and it is clear that the love she gives her community, and her Daily, is paying off. We think the Younge Hollywood Blast is Red Carpet ready and we'll be voting for Natasha. Join us, and let's celebrate Natasha and the publisher in all of us.
