Zemanta - For Fast, Efficient Blogging
We live in a web-based generation of journalism where, thanks to the medium of blogging, everyone is a journalist, and with the help of Zemanta, even the most computer illiterate person can get quality, publishable and aesthetic work on the internet.
Serious journalists will generally avoid writing a blog, but for the rest of the generation obsessed with this phenomenon, this tool produces great results in seconds.
From more than five million pictures and articles, Zemanta suggests tags, provides you with website links and recommends photographs relevant for your blog while taking care of the copyright, all based on the content of your posts.
Everything about this tool is efficient. Zemanta is downloadable in a matter of minutes, provides you with appropriate content in seconds and requires very little training time at all. By doing the content search for you, all you have to do is watch in amazement.
With the amount of bloggers worldwide reaching tens of millions, the creators of Zemanta, a Slovenian-based product, have created a tool so incredibly user-friendly that blogging has never been easier.
The format for professionals seems a waste at US$1,200 when the free version should supply you with your everyday blogging needs.
However, the free downloadable format is compatible with most blogging and social networking sites, such as Wordpress, Blogger, Myspace and Facebook.
In a generation where we want everything on demand, Zemanta delivers this by putting all the content on a plate for you.
Is it free? Bloggers – Yes ; Professionals - US$1,200
