I just wanted to recommend the ScribeFire plugin
to anyone who uses Firefox. As you might have read from my intro post I barely started my blog last month and I have already seen high success and efficiency using this plugin. It basically is an in browser tool for posting to your blog but has other tools to add your tags and even promote your blog posts. I know that you can easily post through your blogging software's default UI, but I have found that ScribeFire really allows me to operate well as a blog author. It pops up on the bottom half of your browser screen leaving the top half to freely browse sites to find that link you were gonna use in your post or do research as you write. Anyway check it out if your a Firefox fan. If you don't use FF then you might check their site to see if the plugin supports your browser or not.
I also wanted to add an example for the success I am experiencing...
Back on 11/20 I wrote an article on my blog titled "Protection Warrior Leveling in WoTLK
". That was only 11 day ago, and I only used ScribeFire's promotion tools to promote it on the web. In just that short time if you Google "protection warrior leveling wotlk" I have THE #1 spot.
