Here is where you can create a live blog after you have created a Tickaroo.Free account.
Tickaroo has templates for over 20 different sports (Handball, Hockey, Ice hockey, Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, among others) and News. Our templates help you quickly compose engaging commentary, and make uploading pictures, videos, and links a breeze. This way your audiences get to experience the event in real time.
It is possible for several people to work simultaneously on a singular live blog. In order to do this, all reporters must be logged into the same Tickaroo.Free account. If you want to be able to create your live blog with more professional functions, like our Multi-Reporter function as well as other Pro functions, then the expanded Tickaroo for Business Version is for you.
Tickaroo has many features that make creating live blogs even easier. Once you have set up your live blog and have posted your first entry, you can open an editing menu, by clicking on the entry you would like to edit. Here you can hide or show various content, mark an entry as important, schedule a post for a later time to be published, or define Milestones within your live blog.
You can take pictures and record videos with your smartphone and publish them directly into your live blog. Naturally, you can upload photos and videos from your computer as well. With your smartphone, a 2-minute livestreaming option is also available.
When you highlight text, a text editor automatically appears, which allows you to create headings, and adjust the typographical emphasis of your text.
The more photos, gifs, and videos you upload into your live blog, the more interesting and exciting your live blog will be for your readers. Integrating multimedia content is a fast and simple way to produce a more vivid live blog.
If you want to integrate a Vimeo video, Spotify playlist, or Open Graph link into your live blog, all you have to do is copy the link, paste it into the live blog text box, and post it as a live blog message. Tickaroo automatically embeds the content.

The link will remain as a preview link, which your users can click on.
