I've been using Google Chrome for a couple of weeks now and stumbled on this Zemanta plugin. It's an add-on to help bloggers find interesting content to match what they're posting about. It allows you to connect to your friends at the various social networking sites and pull from your RSS feed reader. Might be interesting.

By the way, I'm dangerously close to changing Chrome to my default browser. Sorry Firefox. :(

Socialite, a WordPress/Facebook connection plugin

I want to start posting more this year, and I thought a "write once, post everywhere" approach might help. This plugin will supposedly post to the FaceBook news feed whenever I add a post to this blog. I'm starting with FB,  but may add MySpace and possibly...gulp, Twitter at some point.

Here's the link to the plugin: http://www.gilfether.com/socialite/

Update: link didn't show up. Let's see if that's fixed...
