Hooray for Widgets

Thanks to the new widgets from TypePad (maybe they’re not so new; maybe I just never figured out how to use them before), I now have a few new bells and whistles on the blog.

My personal favorite: FeedBlitz, at the top right. You can subscribe to this blog, and any other blog using it, so you get daily e-mail updates when there’s a new post. For me, this is a lot easier than feed readers or bookmarks or anything. It’s your call – if you like getting information this way, you at least have the option.

I’m also now in Technorati and Feedster (there’s a Technorati link at the bottom right; I don’t think I got the Feedster link to work). I also tried setting up a Eurekster Swicki, but it wouldn’t automatically update on my site.

The ultimate bonus for me is that with these widgets, many of which even work, I don’t have to consider switching to a different blog publishing tool. Still, if anyone can figure out why my columns sometimes get a little messed up, please let me know.

Thanks for your readership.
