What kind of stories can I post?
Any travel related story! Your great adventure may be in your own backyard or across the globe. It may be a long trip or a short vacation. You may write as much or as little as you want, or just post a photo gallery of your adventure. The sky's the limit, so have some fun!
How many stories can I post?
As many as you want! Some of our users write multiple articles on different places and experiences, whereas some use their profile as a tool to write daily for friends and family to follow. We're happy to follow along!
Can I change information on my listing page? Add a picture of myself?
You bet! We want you to make your Footcircles area (www.footcircles.com/joeuser) your own, and you can do that through your admin panel under the Listing Tab. Just login to your account here and click on the Listing tab. You see various options for your area, including About (where you would add a description of yourself and your picture in the Logo field), Basics (where you could link to your website, provide your email, etc.), links, images and extra pages if what we have there isn't covered. They will all appear on your Footcircles area (www.footcircles.com/joeuser) within the blue navigation bar.
How can I add a Footcircles social media icon to my site or blog?
To include the Footcircles social media icon to your website, please visit our instructions page and icon bank.
How will my stories be used?
All stories on Footcircles are public and you can share your unique page with your friends and family (ie www.footcircles.com/joeuser). Stories will also be posted to the appropriate category channels by our staff and outstanding articles will be featured on our homepage and in our newsletter.
What is the advantage of posting my stories on Footcircles instead of my own blog or site?
There are thousands of travel blogs currently in existance and Footcircles desires to bring those individuals under a common umbrella. Posting your stories on your Footcircles profile will increase your exposure, while allowing you to send friends and family your unique page. Others will also be able to do a keyword search to find articles by real travellers who have advice and first hand experience on where they are going.
What is the best way to post a photo gallery?
You can post a gallery as individual pictures via the Insert Image icon at the top of your article editing window, or you can embed a photo slideshow from Flickr, Kizoa or similar photo sites. Be advised that Flash does not work on iPods, iPhones or iPads at present, so your Flash slideshow may not display on those platforms at this time.
