A plugin that makes it easy to create Remind Me links and buttons within posts and Call-to-Action reminders at the bottom of posts
I'm a big Astrid fan, so when I found the plug-in, I was excited to try it out.
It's a simple concept, but makes a lot of sense. Basically, it makes it easier to add reminders to blog posts so that readers can remember and take action on the things I've written about. I love the reminder link creation tool and I think overall the experience of adding reminders is really simple and easy to use.
I'm a fan an recommend you try it out.
I got an early preview of the plugin that was originally built as for Chrislema.com. At first I didn't buy the idea of using the optional Call-To-Action section at the bottom of my posts so I contributed to the plugin by adding the inline Remind Me links and buttons.
After using this for a couple weeks I have discovered that the Call-To-Action section helps me focus my writing. Because the main reason I write is to have a positive impact on others I am thinking about two things.
While Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ help me with distribution, the Astrid plugin seems to help with #2. I love that it makes me think "how is this post applicable?" and gives me an easy next step for my readers.
I plan on continuing to contribute to this plugin's development and look forward to seeing how others end up using it!
I'm willing to admit I'm forgetful. I also know my readers are as well. I've been feeling for quite some time now that it's not just enough to give advice and recommendations in a blog post.
What I love about the Astrid plugin is that it forces me to think in terms of concrete take-aways and reminders that my readers can use to make my recommendations actionable.
I was able to get my hands on an early version of the plugin and have really liked from the beginning how easily it makes my writing impactful and actionable.
Easy-to-use, helpful, great tool, guys. Thank you!
