    Some of the blogs I follow have this really nifty feature that suggests three posts I “may also like” that are similar to the post I just read. Here is an example of one of those blogs. http://framed-mylifeonepictureatatime.blogspot.com/

    This seems to be a Blogger feature and I love it! It’s a great and easy way to get readers to click on other posts and really dig deeper and get to know the blog and all it has to offer. I guess this feature would choose what to post at the bottom of a post based on similar tags and categories? Anyway, I would love to see this on WordPress.com for every blog.

    The blog I need help with is caliroadtrippin.wordpress.com.

    You can enable the very same feature by unchecking “Hide related links on this blog” at Appearance -> Extras in your blog’s Dashboard.

    That’s very normal. What you see over there is produced by Linkwithin, a widget that doesn’t work in wordpress.com.

    I have been using Google Related Links to generate links that lead to MY blog, since that “extra” thing fetches stuff that’s not always in my blog.

    I find that when I enable “possibly related posts” most of the links are to my own posts. That’s because I have a large archive of optimized and indexed blog content. However, long before possibly related posts was introduced here I chose to add “Related posts found in this blog” manually at the end of each of my posts and I continue to do that now. I use Google search and it only takes minutes to locate and post the links to related posts. Perhaps the reason your don’t think “possibly related posts” works for you is because you don’t have a large archive of optimized and indexed blog content as yet.

    Also, please note that if you had related links disabled, it will take a while for it to generate the related links for every post.

    @macmanx Okay, cool! So I did that, but it just lists the title, is there way to get it to show a photo that’s in the post along with the title?

    No. The only way you can “show a photo that’s in the post along with the title” is to do that manually at the end of each of your posts.

    If your next question is can we use the Linkwithin widget on wordpress.com blogs I’m sorry but the answer is “no”. http://www.linkwithin.com/learn
