If you’re like me and thought that Blogger.com only had a handful of gadgets for their blogs, think again.
Blogger has more than 1100 gadgets, you can add to your blog to make it more appealing for your viewers.
When you go to “Design” and click on “Add a Gadget”, you are immediately sent to the “Basics” page, which list the usual 23 gadgets like HTML, text,pictures, etc.
But if you take a look to the left hand side, there are other gadgets listed under “Featured”, “Most Popular”, “More Gadgets” and “Add Your”
“Features” include gadgets for Amazon,Flickr, Picassa and Twitter, while “Most Popular” features gadgets like Digg, YouTube.
The rest of thousand plus gadgets can be found under ‘More Gadgets”, where you can find polls, Yahoo News, fashion games, iTunes and quotes from Michael Jordan and yes Mr. T!
If you already developed a gadget, go to the “Add Your Own Link” and can upload place the gadget’s link in the “Add by Url” section
While Blogger would be better served to feature more of their popular gadgets on their “Basic” page, it’s sill great that Blogger has more options that the usually RSS feeds and comments.
…and I pity the fool who doesn’t add these gadgets to their blog.
