The way you use your time is the way you live your life.

Finding time to write blog posts that are informative, up-to-date, and connect to relevant content on other sites and blogs is a challenge that a tool like Zemanta can help address. What does it do? Well, let’s go right to the horse’s mouth … here’s how they describe it on their About page:
Any user-created text (a blog post, article or web page) is directly “read” by Zemanta, which recognizes all contextual content. Zemanta then combs the web for the most relevant images, smart links, keywords and text, instantly serving these results to the user to enrich and inform their content. What’s more, Zemanta can be deployed on all major content publishing platforms and web browsers through a simple plug-in.
So, for example, as I am creating this post, having already downloaded the WordPress Plugin, related content appears in the sidebar, along with suggested images from the web. This is all based on the keywords in the text that I am adding.
One of the things you’ll want to be sure to do is to add your own blog feed to Zemanta, as it will search through your past posts for relevant material. As you write, you simply check the sidebar for interesting connections. Then you can either click them to open them and explore further, or, with a single click, add them to the end of your posts. Zemanta creates a heading (See “Related Articles” below) and adds the links that you click to the list.
What a great way to expand the information that you offer your readers – not to mention enhancing your connections on the web! Have you tried Zemanta? Drop me a line – I’d love to hear what you think of it.
And, turning from the technological to the more personal … are you inspired to find time and increase your effectiveness, efficiency and enjoyment?
