Something to try out: Zemanta the Blogging Extension for Firefox

Zemanta Firefox pluginImage by Tom Raftery via FlickrToday I stumpled upon Zemanta, an extension for our beloved Firefox browser. It integrates into your browser and as soon as you start blogging on one of these plattforms (Wordpress, Blogger, Typepad, LiveJournal, Movable Type), a sidebar (in its a sidebar, don't know about the rest) appears and gives you numerous choices. Watch the movie to see what I'm actually about to tell you.
First, it will scan your article and match it against some Zemanta database to find similarities to your article. It then gives a choice of pictures from Flickr to include into your posting (on the right hand side). Afterwards you can add related articles to what you've just written (on the bottom of this article).
It will also suggest Tags for your posting. A list of links matching your contents is also included and very handy feature in my eyes. Just mark one or more words in your text and click on the suggestions. Voila, the link is set.

By the way, as you might have noticed, this posting has been written with the help of Zemanta. I'm not affiliated in any way with Zemanta. I'm just giving it a shot.
