Thing #25–More thoughts on Bloggers’ Toolkit

May 29th, 2009 · No Comments

A couple more thoughts before I move on to the next thing.  I use ScribeFire to post to this blog.  It’s a free add on for Firefox that really makes the posting process quicker. Once it’s setup, I just hit a button in the browser to call up a text box where I type the post.  It provides all the standard formatting tools and allows me to use WordPress-specific functions.  It’s not specific to WordPress, though.  If you’re a Firefox user, I recommend it highly.

I’ve implemented Outbrain to let readers rate the blog posts.  You’ll see that each post now has some little stars at the bottom.  Just click the stars to show what you think.  One star means the post was boring; five means you found it excellent.  I’m really curious to see if this feature gets used.  It’s free and supports itself by adding some links to (presumably) related websites who are no doubt paying for the service.  I’m not wild about ads on my blog but these are pretty unobtrusive and the company does need to stay in business.
