How to blog like a pro?

Blogging like a pro is the wish of every blogger. If you are a blogger or you want to start blogging you will definitely want to blog like a pro. Zemanta is the service that lets you blog like a pro by helping you find the related images, articles and videos to your posts.

Zemanta provides browser addons for almost all the browsers out there. All you have to do is just install the addon and goto your blog admin panel (I have tested with WordPress 3.0.2 but it works with all blogging platforms). As soon as you will goto the “Add New Post” i.e post editor of your blog you will find a new panel “Content Recommendations” on the right hand side of the editor.

Using Zemanta is as easy as 1, 2, 3. Below are the steps:

Step 1: Start writing your blog post.

Step 2: Zemanta will find the related content and show them to you in the Content Recommendation box.

Step 3: Add the images, videos, links from Zemanta recommendations to your blog by dragging them or click them.

Zemanta will not work with the post editor in HTML mode, you will need to switch to Visual editor to be able to use Zemanta.
