Let's say you've come up with this great episode guide for Battlestar Galactica. You've included pictures, insights, and some pretty great outlines for where you think the season finale is headed, and you want to get your guide out to the masses instead of keeping it all to yourself. You need eyeballs on that piece of art!
So you head on over to Scribd, upload your document (in Word, Excel, PDF or Text form), and off it goes into the vast reaches of the Internet for all the BSG Fanboys and Fangirls to see.
Still wondering what Scribd is? Well, for starters, it's a storage device, a self-publishing site, and a search engine all in one. Scribd lets you publish your documents and get them on the web for free and then allows you to embed your documents anywhere you wish — on your blog, Facebook, or Linkdin pages, anywhere. Plus, you can search for documents by type — how-to, eBook, essay — so your document can be found easily by others. Oh, and did I mention it was free? Scribd is also pretty sweet for proud mothers who would like to post their kids' A+ papers on their family blogs. Go ahead and say it: My kid is smarter than yours!
