I’ve recently added a new plug-in – Aizetto’s Related Posts – and I’m currently on the fence as to whether I’ll keep it.

On one hand I’m intrigued by the non-relativeness of the posts the plug-in selects… for example – my post on Matt Price’s funeral attracts:

  • Freedom through eye-wear
  • Community Blogger Award

But not Vale Matt Price. An obviously related post one would have thought.

On the other hand – the randomness is quite funny and I’m enjoying the quirky nature of the selections – it’s a bit like when you ring directory assistance and say “Bunnings Hardware” and the computer girl comes back with “You said Bar Pizza?”

Do you have a related posts plug-in? Found a good one? Is it annoying or good value?

I thought I downloaded one that was recommended, but I can’t find it. I find plugins very confusing…

I don’t like it.

Minaly because when I open your posts in Bloglines, the ‘related’ is merged into your ‘fresh’ writing and makes it all so jumpy and confusing.

I can see here it’s in a smaller font and as a footer, but Bloglines doesn’t see it that way …

Ah great feedback. I can turn that off – so I will! :)
