BlogSummarizer – your blog knowledge base companion

Blogs are invaluable information resources and great communication tools. They allow you to share and learn as you go and reach out to interested people outside your regular circles. 

As useful as blogs are, a great deal of accumulated information is lost in the growing archives. 

Blogs are structured to provide only the most recent information. It is far less convenient to find what you need when you have to dig back for information from older posts. This is especially significant when you have authored hundreds of posts over a period of time. In this case, having a tool to organize your information into a handy knowledge base will give you easy access to all of your blog posts in the context of your search.

This is exactly what BlogSummarizer provides.

All your blog post are summarized and indexed and the summaries and keywords are organized  into powerful and easy-to-use knowledge bases. 

To display the content of a knowledge base, BlogSummarizer uses a powerful visualization engine. This engine generates on-demand visual summaries and visual knowledge maps. The visual summaries display the most relevant keywords with summaries, and the visual knowledge maps  provide you with a comprehensive network of related blog posts based on the entire content of your knowledge base.

All visual summaries and visual knowledge maps are exportable to browsers, word editors, and mind mapping applications. You can publish your visual summaries and visual maps simply by embedding them in your blog and web pages. 

Most importantly,  the visual summaries and visual knowledge maps run on all computers and devices: PCs, Macs, Linux, tablets and smart phones. 

What do you need to do to create your blog knowledge base?
