50 Great Widgets For Your Blog

Widgets are a great way to add some flare and uniqueness to your blog. Whether you’d like to show your live blog traffic stats or show your visitors which sites have recently linked to your web site, you can do it with widgets.

I recently came across a list of 50 great blog add-ons that are useful or simply just cool widgets and wanted to share it with you. Most of them work with both WordPress and Blogger so it doesn’t matter which blogging platform you use.

Go through the list and pick and choose some new widgets to test drive on your blog. I recommend not overdoing it by dressing up your blog with too many widgets. There’s a fine line of functionality vs clutter and a blog with too many confusing widgets will only deter people from your site.

So check out Mashable’s 50 Great Widgets article and let me know which widgets you like best!

I truly admire the effort to put the list down. But, I find it many of his choices less productive for the blog itself. What I really like to have is a tab widget consist of popular & latest post, recent comments and tags, like yours 😛
