This is my first post using a combination of this technology. I’ve used ScribeFire before, when Firefox was all the rage, and Zemanta too, when I was a baby blogger.
ScribeFire is essentially a blog editor that lives in your browser, and if you’re a prolific writer, and publish to many blogs, it can help you create posts in double quick time. I’m hoping that on this my second time using it, I’ll use it to the best of its abilities.
Zemanta on the other hand, is a perfect compliment, as it brings in images, and related content from around the web to help you quickly create or a better word is curate content on your site.
As I said at the start of this post, this is an example of a post using them both, I’m typing this up in the ScribeFire tab in Chrome, and the image at the top, and the related articles are from Zemanta. I’ll need some time and experience with this platform for a while to test and get familiar with, and most importantly to create a few posts before I can give my opinions, but in the meantime, please read the:
