Glogging isn’t a new sport for the 2020 Olympics but a great way to build interactive digital posters to share.

Glogging the Day AwayGlogster is a social network that allows users to create free interactive posters, or glogs. A glog, short for graphical blog, is an interactive multimedia image. It looks like a poster, but readers can interact with the content. Add text, pictures, hyperlinks, videos, music, and more to build your own creation with a easy to use interface with lots of built in themes to make it super easy.
