Link Grab-O-Matic

Description

I couldn’t find a simple way to just add links with a short description to my blog without
jumping through a lot of hoops. So I made this simple plugin that makes adding posts to your
to site as a link blog post with just a few steps. That way you could have posts that like
the popular site Daring Fireball

There’s a simple wizard style interface that walks you through the process.

Any image that is used from the source link will be added to the post and set as the thumbnail.
The image isn’t added inline to the post because I want you to have more control of how it
was displayed. However the image will be imported in to the Media gallery for you to insert.
