As you know, I’m intrigued by the entire subject of artificial intelligence and while this latest WordPress experiment isn’t “true AI”, it is designed to deliver a personal recommendation to each reader. And yes, every reader will receive different recommendations.
As you progress through the site visit, the sidebar code will learn what you like and don’t like and will begin showing you things you may like more. In other words, it’s not just a simple “more posts list” but incorporates some logic in its code.
For those who care about such things, the WordPress plugin is called “Kindred Posts” and a quick google search will pull it up.
- I’m not sure it works.
- I’m not sure it’s helpful.
I’d welcome your comments about it – does it give you something you may not have found easily otherwise.

- It didn’t work reliably. The first time I tried it was successful. The second through fourth, under a strict regimen of tracking one category (short stories) produced nothing.
- It’s gone. Deleted.
