East side of El Castillo at Chichen ItzaImage via Wikipedia

I'm experimenting with a new service called Zemanta that is supposed to automatically find links, articles, and photos as you type a blog post, or an email. Let's see if it works.

Chichen Itza is one of my favorite places to visit. The pyramid there, El Castillo, was recently selected as one of the 7 new wonders of the world.

Hey, whaddya know, it really worked! As I typed I clicked on an Update button on a Zemanta toolbar that is conveniently located on the right side of my Blogger window, and within a few seconds, several photos of Chichen Itza magically appeared! I dragged one of the photos, and Zemanta automatically placed it inside my blog post with an attribution link.

Here's another photo from Chichen Itza that I like:

Obviously I have a lot more to learn about Zemanta, but so far it was very easy to use.
