Blog Assist is a feature we've added to our Agentfire sites that's there to help you find articles that you can essentially re-blog with your own unique content.
The model is similar to LifeHacker and HuffingtonPost.com, where a lot of the articles published on these sites are actually summaries of articles or posts elsewhere, where a writer writes a summary, description, or opinion of the piece and then links back to the original article in question.
So with our blog assist, you can add Feeds, to your website similar to a Feed reader. Examples of feeds would include New York Times Real Estate, Inman Real Estate, Home and Garden TV's blog, etc. As long as the site has an rss feed, which most news / blog sites do, we can take that feed, and feed it into your back-end.
Example of How To Use Blog Assist
Once we've got some other sites feeding into our blog assist, you can go to Blog Assist > Add New Blog Assist post to scan stories from those feeds, again very similar to a Feed Reader
You can click the title of any of the stories that interest you to open the story in a separate window. If you decide you want to blog about a particular article, go ahead and click Blog About This next to the article
This will open up a new post and insert attribution to the original article at the bottom of the visual editor
Above the attribution, you should write your own unique description, summary, or opinion of the article.
As always, don't forget to categorize your post and set a featured image!
