My Modern Met’s Featured on Flipboard!

Good morning! To start off the week, I’d love to share a good piece of news with you. Our website, My Modern Met, was just featured on the Flipboard iPad app as a pick of the week! What a thrill and an honor. As you may recall, we wrote about Flipboard when it first launched, intrigued by an app that could take our Twitter and Facebook streams and turn them into beautiful magazine like-articles. It was one of my very first apps on my iPad and I can say, whole-heartedly, that it’s still one of my favorites. Why? Because the app makes reading through your streams an enjoyable experience. It also delivers some great, aggregated content sections (like news, music, and tech) that’s selected by Flipboard’s creators. If you haven’t checked it out, give it a whirl. If you have it on your iPad, you can quickly add this website by selecting an empty content box and tapping "Add a Section.” You’ll see us pop up under “This Week’s Picks.” Flipboard Related: My Modern Met’s Featured on Pulse!
