​Know Your Audience: Announcing Dynamic Creator Dashboards

Here at Odyssey HQ, we’re working tirelessly to change the way content is created and consumed. We can’t tackle such a big mission without providing a platform that enables our thousands of Creators to find and grow their unique audiences.

That’s why we’re thrilled today to announce the launch of personalized front-end dashboards! Whenever you’re on Odyssey, just click into your profile on the upper right corner of the screen, and select "Dashboard" directly under your name. There you'll be able to see your page views, social engagements, followers, and more. It's an opportunity to learn exactly what content resonates with your readers, and how to position yourself to take off as an influencer on Odyssey like never before.

Let’s use Callie Porcher, a Creator at Orlando, Florida, to dig into the different features available. Callie has been writing on Odyssey since May 2016. Previously, she had limited access to the performance of her work. Now, this is what she sees when she lands on her dashboard:

At the top is an overview of Callie’s lifetime statistics, which can easily be toggled to the previous week or month. Below is a stream of her drafts and live articles. Clicking a draft leads directly to MUSE to continue writing or editing, whereas clicking a live article leads to a zoomed in view of how that piece has performed on Facebook, as well a breakdown of which sites are driving traffic to it.

In September, Callie wrote an excellent personal letter to a former close friend. Since being published, it has amassed well over 2 million views. Let’s take a look at where all that traffic came from:

As you can see, this article took off on Facebook — to date it’s garnered 645.1K shares, 644.5K likes, and 145 comments. And counting. Looking at the referral sources, most of the views have come from Facebook on mobile, followed by Facebook on desktop. Next is direct traffic, meaning people who clicked on it while elsewhere on Odyssey, then t.co (Twitter), and Google.

Of course, not every article reaches such great heights in terms of raw views, but the beauty of this dashboard is the information it provides about everything you create. Which style of content performs best relative to others? Which topic seems to strike a chord with your readers? Does that topic have a better audience on one external platform than another? These are the questions you can start answering for yourself, and much more. To learn more about your dashboard, check out this walkthrough on the Odyssey User Knowledge Base.

So go play around with your own dashboard today! You’re one step closer to becoming a true Odyssey influencer.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
