Blog this article, please

Blog this article, please: ZDNet.com has a link at the bottom of each story that invites readers to “blog this.” The link takes you to a copy-and-paste, pre-formated blog post. Here’s an example of their suggested post for a recent Steve Gillmor piece. It’s like a feature I use in MarsEdit, except the ZDNet folks have pre-written some copy.

(via: B.L. Ochman, who doesn’t really care for the idea. She says, “ZD Net thinks bloggers will want to be told what to write, what links to use and how to format their posts? Not this blogger. But I bet they will get lots of takers.”)
