This is my first attempt at using Zemanta, a Firefox Extension that hooks into your blog’s compose page and suggests related multimedia and related blog articles to what you are currently writing about.

From the description I think there’s definitely some intriguing possibilities here, in terms of adding additional value to a blog post, but at the same time, it’s a bit cluttered, what with all the extra options now being presented to me. (And really, do we need this for email too? I don’t see that, but whatever floats your email boat, so to say…)

I’m just learning about this tool, so I’m going to see what parts of it can actually add value to my posts, and which ones I want to use. Consider this a quick test, and let me know what you think.

    I just started using Zemanta. I am using it with the Firefox plugin so I can be selective of where I apply it. I am running several blogs and I have noticed at least a couple backlinks. It’s off to a good start.
