My blogging buddies!! - "Zemanta, Outbrain and Lijit"

With Zemanta, I forgot all my blogging woes. Zemanta brings together my entire world with just a click, whether it be my photographs from flickr, my contacts from facebook or linkedin, automatic tagging, automatic linking, relevant public photographs or relvant public URLs. With all this, a person like me who used to cringe when asked to blog is blogging at will.

Outbrain is a cool widget that provides a cool rating interface for my end-user and provides apt URL recommendations based on my blog post's content. It also provides information on "Popular posts" on my blog based on the ratings my posts have received.

Lijit is the wijit that is giving google a run for its money. This cool search wijit allows me to unify all my content on the web (facebook, linkedin, flickr, my other blogs, MyBloglog and other public URLs). The beauty is that the Lijit Wijit engine is working hard in the background to create an online database for me (Sankara Subramanian C). Now, it provides the end-user with the option to search into my online world based on the database that it has been building on me. The popular searches are then listed in a tag cloud format just below the seach box. It's re-search feature is just amazing! As a value add, the Lijit Search Wijit also shows a map of where my blog's visitor's came from and a list of my recent readers. Now, all this it provides through its one in all collapsible Lijit Wijit, which includes the Lijit Search, Visitors Map and Recent Readers. Lijit Search Wijit is compatible with most of the blogging platforms and cover most of the online properties created.

Blogging just got easier for me. A big thanks to Zemanta, Outbrain and Lijit.
