Zemanta Is My New Favorite Tool As A Blogger

I stumbled upon Zemanta the other day and have grown to love this blogging tool. Personally, I have it as a WordPress plugin which works out well. It appears to the right of the area in which you write the content of your post. The plugin grabs your content and pulls out keywords to search the internet against. If it finds anything, it will place images that relate to the content that you are writing about. Most of these images are from flickr, other photosharing software and sites. You can click on the photo and it will automatically place it into your content.

Zemanta also provides two other key components to this tool. Below the posting area, links will appear that relate to your content as well. You can click on the boxes that appear and see where they are coming from, for example: Wikipedia, main site, imdb, maps, youtube and more. Below those boxes in the tags section is a set of tags that are auto generated based on your content. You click the tag and it adds the tags for you.

This is a great tool because, it is very easy to be lazy while blogging and not want to link to sites or add tags, but this makes it a lot easier and faster. I would highly recommend it to any blogger, however, if you have a lot of firefox addons (depending on the addon), it might slow down your blogging because it uses all your CPU usage. I have 2Gb of memory in my laptop and it ran slow with one or more of my firefox plugins. Just informing my readers of what I experienced. ­???
