First off, thank you so much for everyone who has ever opened one of my cards. I recently reached 11 million views on Vingle and I seriously can't believe it!
Thank you for being my friends and inspiring me every day :D
That being said, here's a few tricks for how to make great cards here on Vingle:
(for how to make a card in the first place, go HERE!)
1. Add a Title!
How easy is that?!
It's the first thing people will see from your card and will be what tells Vinglers whether they want to read your card or not.
Make it catchy and exciting! If it's too long, your title might get cut off so keep it relatively short :)
Cards with titles average 1000+ views more than cards without them...they really help!
2. Find Good Images
Good quality, bigger images are always better for cards :D
It makes your card look more exciting, and people will want to look at it more.
I use Google images or images I find on Tumblr and make sure the images aren't tiny. You can even sort Google searches by size (I aim for bigger than 400x300)
Avoid screenshots...it might be the picture you want, but it looks SOOOO much better if you take the time to save the photo and upload it instead of the low-quality screen shot.
3. Use Blocks
Would you just post ONE Jeonghan gif?! Answer: OF COURSE NOT! The more the merrier when it comes to making cards :D
Try spacing out your pictures and text by using the block feature: check out how HERE
It makes your card easier to read and lets you have more fun!
See?! Isn't this block lovely?!
4. Post in Relevant Communities
You want to post your cards so that people who want to read them can see them! Don't post a SHINee card in the BTS community, for example :D

5. Tag Your Friends
Because that's really why we're here in the Vingle Family, to be with our friends! A tag will let your friends know they should look at your card RIGHT NOW CAUSE ITS PROBABLY AWESOME and can get people liking and commenting your stuff. Make sure you're only tagging people in cards they would definitely like.
(Pro tip - I keep a list of users I KNOW loves certain things. Like my Seventeen buddies or my awesome Starlights so when I see a card they'd love I can tag them all quickly!)
For example, if you post anything about Hakyeon or Suga TAG ME PLS BECAUSE LORD KNOWS I NEED MORE OF THAT IN MY LIFE.
