Blogging takes time. Sure, you can pump out a short post in a few minutes, but that’s not the norm. Typically, it takes work to put in links, add nice (and non-copyrighted!) photos, and quote someone else. It just takes work. Zemanta is a new service that allows you to do all of that!
The photo search feature allows you to search on keywords from various stock photo providers like Wikimedia and Flickr . You can also recommend your posts to others who use the service, though you will need the FF extension to do that. Basically, the service allows you to do more of what you started blogging for: writing. It will give proper attribution for links, quotes, and pics. Pretty neat service. And it works with blogger, WordPress (hosted and non), Typepad, LiveJournal, MovableType. And it has plugins for IE and FF.
