I must be one of the last Bloggers out there to get onto this... sigh. But just in case there are some more people out there, here is a post about how to get that neat little thing at the end of each post which says - You might also like and then puts 3 thumbnails of earlier posts there to entice your readers to click through to them.
For months I put manual links at the end of each post - what a palaver. And then I noticed that many of the blogs I follow had these thumbnails at the end of each post. I did some fossicking on Google and wasn't very successful at finding what I wanted. So I did the obvious and asked one of my blog friends how they did it. (As an aside, I have found everyone that I have asked a question like this - no matter how dumb - to have been very helpful - in a way that is why I am doing this little blog to pay forward all that help).
The first provider of these thumbnails that was recommended to me was Link Within - which is used by lots of people. I went to their site and installed it but wasn't that happy with how it worked for my blog - the recommendations seemed very random. I am sure this may not be the case for others. It is just that I cover a number of quite different topics. So please do give them a go. It is free.
So I then found another provider - nrelate - which has been great. It is also free. It comes up with the goods for me. One thing I did get wrong is that when I installed it I chose to have the thumbnails on my posts only and not on my home page. That was a mistake so I had to uninstall it and reinstall it - with the right box checked this time.
Anyway, whichever provider you use, just do it. It happens automatically for each new post. Fantastic.
