Storify.com offers a different way to tell and find stories. Their site describes it this way:
"Storify users tell stories by collecting updates from social networks, amplifying the voices that matter to create a new story format that is interactive, dynamic and social. Discover meaningful social media from the best storytellers online, including journalists, bloggers, editors and people like you, too.
Our front page displays the best images, videos, links, updates and other media collected by Storify users. You can click on the story associated with each media element to get the context of why it’s interesting. Any element can be re-used for your own stories, or also commented on, liked or shared."
As well as pulling together elements from a variety of sources, you can create a headline, write an introduction, and insert text anywhere in the story to create a flow.
When you're done, you can get an embed code and put the story or a link to it on your own website or blog. You can also notify the people whose work you incorporated. If they notify their followers, it could mean your story gets greater attention.
Here is the first one I've done, on how to be more creative:
Would Storify stories be useful in marketing your work? I haven't used it enought to figure that out, but my hunch is that it could be a tool that isn't yet being overused. I'll keep you posted, and if you've had any experience with it, good or bad, I'd love to hear about them, either in a comment on this post or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
