Before I did this little post, I went to the Activerain Search and typed in Widgets. I wanted to make sure the information was not already out there about this. I did find tons of posts on widgets but none that really talked about what I wanted to say. However, they are all worth reading.
Widgetbox is a really fun site which has hundreds of widgets you can import to you Activerain or outside blog.
Some of you are asking?
What the heck is a widget ? I'm just learning to blog and now a widget.
A widget is a mini-application that you can put on your blog or web-site. It is a fun little application that can provide your readers with some information, or just fun on your web site or blog.
I just added the widget to my web site about Find A House Value Instantly, which is in my side margin or my profile. You add the html you get from widgetbox.com and it appears on the side bar in Activerain. ( Go to setting and add the html in there.) There are soooooooooooooo many to choose from and it is really easy to do.
Brad Anderson wrote a post in June about Widgets can be Hazardous To Your Health. If you look at Brad's blog you will see many types of widgets.
Well, in January I had only been blogging since December so I had no clue what I was doing. But, I registered so now I find 8 months later how many widgets there are and I wanted to let everyone know about this cool site. I don't recommend cluttering up you blog site but you may want to add a few to make your site more original and I'm sure the consumers that we want to attract from Localism will appreciate some of them.
They can be put on any blog, myspace, or web site you want to put them on.
HAVE FUN !!!!!!!!!!!
