Do you write dry content? I know that i have been accused of just that in the past. I just found a free Firefox plugin called Zemanta that adds a bit of a sidebar applet to your WordPress Write window that gives you one click access to adding pictures and links to articles. On a meta basis it will also add ideas for keywords and of course this may help give you more ideas for the articles and posts that you are writing in WordPress. Best of all it does all of this on the fly.
Installation of this Firefox plugin is of course very easy. Just go to the link, download the add-on and then after Firefox is restarted you will notice nothing new until you go into write a new blog post, then Zemanta sitting is in the right hand side of your Firefox as if it was a piece of WordPress.
The plugin does not yet work in a prerelease version of next weeks upgrade of WordPress 2.5 but I am hoping it has been updated by the time I upgrade.
After you add a pic or link through Zemanta it will just add the hotlink right in your window and you can move on. No configuring is needed and if you want to see what an article link looks like, this one below is one clicked from Zemanta
Test it out. The nice thing about Firefox extensions is that if you did not like it you would just be able to disable or install the plugin from Firefox
