It’s important to write about what you’ve read. For a long time I’ve been meaning to write blog posts for all of the books that I’ve read recently but found that I got lost when it came time to begin the process. So I created a plugin that makes it easy to keep track! Basically, it’s a good-looking way to write about the books you’ve read and display them on your website. I utilize some basic prompts to help you extract the meaningful parts of the book and the plugin then creates a blog post entry from this information. Presently the prompts are:
-What Did You Learn from the Book?
-Any Final Thoughts?
If you have any recommendations for other prompts to use please let me know at
firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be happy to consider them!
