Have you ever sat down at the computer to blog only to have a few boring-looking sentences show up? The idea is there, but you just can't get it to be interesting or compelling. Nobody will be reposting this, you think to yourself...
Well, Wordpress has heard the cries of frustrated bloggers everywhere and introduced a new tool. Imagine a robot that goes out to the internet and locates content that you can use in your blog post to beef it up and make it way more attractive. Its called "Zemanta," and comes standard with all Wordpress installations.
Basically, all you have to do when writing an article is get down the general idea, and then Zemanta will present you with a list of related articles, a selection of appropriate images, and tag suggestions.
One click later, and the magical blog angel has added the content to your blog. It gives credit to everything you use, so you can freely click away whenever your post needs a little something extra.
The internet is pretty amazing, and Zemanta is one more tool to harness its power to work for you.
Kudos to Wordpress. Again.
