Blogging with Zemanta


When I started blogging I was wondering what to write? But as of now I got a bit of experience and can write up something or the other and express myself on the wast internet. But a few days back I got this cool stuff called Zemanta. It helps you blog out anything. The best part of this stuff is that you get to label your post with appropriate labels. By the time I have written all this I have got lots of related stuff from where I can use them and build my blog.

The first thing you should do is to install this stuff. It comes as an addon or plugin for the web browsers. It is supported by both Firefox and Internet Explorer.
The next step is to start composing a new blog or post or start editing your old post. You will see that Zemanta is displayed at the right hand side of your working area. In this section you get to see related images, videos and articles or blogs already published which is based on the stuff what you have alredy written. You can chose any of the images for your post. You can also quote the blogs or insert the links of those related blogs or posts. For example the following is the link taken from Zemanta

Just by clicking on the appropriate link, the above one gets added into your post. To remove it just click on the link again and the above link vanishes. Its just easy and really user friendly.
You can get registered in Zemanta and change your preferences in the Zemanta to make your blog lot more easier.

Thats not all. At the bottom of this composing you will get to link many of the words from your post to either the wikipedia or the homepage of that related stuff.
And at the end after posting you get a link from where you can reblog this post by adding your own stuff in it. Try it out and you will love it.
