Have You Caught on to Zemanta?


Use Zemanta to give your posts some pizzazz.

As part of my ongoing effort to improve this blog, I regularly read WordPress.org, wherein I get an education on all the tools at my disposal for our site.  Recently, author Joy Victory informed users about Zemanta, a new add-on that can enhance anyone’s WP blog.

All Zemanta does is basically spice up your blog posts, suggesting related links, images from Wikipedia, and other sorts of “seasonings” that you can throw into the mix.

Now, as much as I like customization via other programs, I still like to be in control of my computers/websites.  Luckily, if you don’t like one or more of the recommendations, you can simply hit “Refine” and a new set will come up.

So basically…it just came down to me wanting to make things a bit more interesting, and offer more resources to our readers.  Thanks a million, WordPress!


About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.

    Thank you for your kind words about Zemanta!

    We’re trying to improve all the time!
    How come you didn’t use any of the suggestions for this post?

    Let us know if you have any more ideas/issues at support@zemanta.com

    • You know, come to think of it, Andraz, I may not have used Zemanta in that particular post because I was writing it from HTML view.

      However, I’m still working on a new post for today, and I just might use some of the Zemanta suggestions. Thanks for your comment…I will keep in touch!
