Watched a movie or a TV show? Log it in WordPress with Traktivity

Do you watch a lot of movies or TV Shows? Do you have a WordPress site? You will love Traktivity!

This plugin allows you to log everything you watch inside your WordPress site. You may then use that data for anything you want.

You could display the last few shows you watched in a widget in your sidebar, you could automatically post on Facebook or Twitter whenever you are watching something, or you could just keep that data to find out more about the genres you watch the most, or how many hours you spent in front of the TV last month or last year.

Most importantly, that data is yours, saved in your WordPress site for good.

I thought this little detail could be useful for everyone, so added it to the plugin itself! If you use Color Posts, go update now! ?
