Words and Pictures

One of my favorite sites, and one I don't spend nearly enough time on, is Tabblo. It's a great site for sharing pictures, but that's just the beginning. The idea behind Tabblo is that you can easily put together photos and words to tell a story. They have plenty of pre-styled templates, and they can all be customized to give you the exact look you want. When you are finished, you have your very own tabblo, or web page. You can share them with other members of the Tabblo community, invite your friends via email, share them on a blog or website, or even order printed versions of your creations. You can also download a high quality pdf version and print it on your own printer.

Here's one I did about a year ago:

Tabblo: As We Begin a New Year

“If every year is a marble, how many marbles do you have left? How many sunrises, how many
opportunities to rise to the full stature of your being?”

Tabblo generates the code and makes it easy to share. Even if you don't share your tabblos on another blog or web page, it's fun to share them with the rest of the Tabblo community. There are groups to join, people to meet, other tabblos to comment on. There are some really talented photographers using Tabblo. I'm always amazed at what I see.

If you haven't tried Tabblo yet, go ahead and give it a try. It's a lot of fun, and it's FREE!

Tabblo is part of Hewlett-Packard.
