Two fun ways to get started on Findery

by on October 6, 2014

Taking a jaunt around the marvels that can be found on can be very much like wandering around a town you’ve never explored before. Sure, you can do the traditional thing and use the search option to find exactly what you need. But there are other fun ways to come across great notes!

One of the easiest ways to discover awesome Findery finds is to begin your journey on the home page. At the top you have the carefully selected Featured Notes – always a good place to start! Scroll until you find one that catches your fancy. Click on it and get ready to travel!

For instance, let’s click on Sleep in a Wigwam! because, really, who hasn’t always wanted to sleep in one?

If you loved the style of the person leaving the note you clicked on, then you can easily click on other notes that person left. They’re listed to the right of the note you’re currently reading.

If you’re more interested in exploring the subject of the note rather than what the note leaver has to say, you can click on any of the notemaps the note belongs to. You’ll find these at the bottom of the note. In this case you get to discover all the awesome places Jessica (another great Findery user!) wants to visit!

Personally, my favorite way to travel via Findery, is a little different. I use my computer mouse to meander all around the map!

I think of a place I’d love to visit. Say, New York City. From there I zooooooom in and “travel” around by moving the map around and clicking on profile bubbles that pop up. Inevitably I discover things I never knew and find new Finders I desperately want to follow.

Depending on the area you’re exploring, you can zoom in onto city blocks and discover countless historical facts, personal anecdotes, or even places you absolutely must visit when you go in person. Sometimes though, notes are tiny treasures that you’ll stumble upon while scrolling around large uncharted areas of the map. I think those are my favorites, the ones that feel like little secrets only shared by the note leaver and myself.

Of course, there are as many ways to discover amazing content on Findery as there are things worth discovering. Part of what makes it a wondrous place is the fact that there’s no “right” way to go about your virtual travels, just lots of fun ways to do so.
