I may end up deleting this post, but I wanted to try a few things with a blogging tool called Apture.
Apture provides the first rich communication platform allowing publishers and bloggers to easily turn flat pages of text into multimedia experiences.So, let me try a few biblically related items and see what you think.
- Gospel of Mark
- Parables of Jesus
- Mustard seed
- Mark 4:30-32
REPORT: That was pretty easy. Click on (or hover over) any of the titles to see the variety of attached links I created. The only one that didn't really work was the "Mark 4:30-32" one, because I already have RefTagger from Logos active on my blog.
SO, if you want to easily spice up your blog with a variety of linked content, give Apture a try.
UPDATE in light of comments:
- You can tell the links that I created using Apture because they have a little book icon in front of them.
- I have noticed as well that all the links don't always show up. They do take a moment after the page is loaded, but a couple times now, the Jerusalem, Moses, and Jesus links haven't shown up.
- Hovering over the links will cause the popup, but there is a delay so you can pass over the link without necessarily causing the popup. Clicking anywhere outside the popup causes it to disappear.
- Clicking on a link in the popup will either generate another popup or open in another tab.
- The Apture links do not show up in my RSS reader. I use Google Reader, and I recommend the Firefox addon Better GReader. It allows you to see the actual web page without leaving your reader. Apture links do show up when this is used.
