Adding content to your start.me page

start.me is a great place for keeping your bookmarks organized and easily accessible. But did you know that start.me can be used for many other purposes as well?

On start.me you can keep track of your favorite news sources, keep your import notes saved, stay on top of your most important tasks and there is so much more you can do with start.me.

You can build your personal start.me page with blocks (aka widgets) of content. A block can contain bookmarks, RSS feeds, notes, images or various other types of content.


How it works

1. Click on the + sign in the page grid or the right top corner. Add content to your start.me page

2. A sidebar dialog opens "What do you want to add?". Here you can enter/paste almost anything you want to add to your start.me page. Examples:

  • the name of a site (e.g. CNN, Youtube)
  • the name of a widget (email, calendar, todo, CNN, ESPN, etc)
  • a URL to a web page (e.g. http://www.cnn.com, http://www.youtube.com)
  • a URL to an image
  • a URL to a RSS feed
  • a generic search item (e.g. a company name, sports team)
  • any text you want to add as Notes widget
  • a to-do list (use format: - To-do item 1, - To-do item 2, - To-do item 3, etc)

3. Based on your input (#2) we'll provide you with a list of suggestions of widgets that you can add to your page.
