Well a friend of mine from Shelfari, Cindy, contacted me through my new contact form on the left. I really got to thinking about what she was asking me about and so I thought about posting about it. Well here is what she wrote to me:
I am really impressed with your website and wanted to know if you could share with me how you get snapshot, blogcounter, blog roll and some other ideas? Maybe a book you’ve read, a site or could even post a blog about blogging!
Well, Cindy I didn’t read a book or a site or even a blog post about blogging. I found all these widgets through different websites that were using them and I mostly just googled the rest. Okay lets start with SnapShot, which I found out through LiveJournal and I thought it was pretty cool so I used it on my website and I liked it so much I thought about using it here on my blog. Well the blogcounter I found through google because I was looking for a free blog counter and I found it at Blog Patrol, it’s a service that answers important questions about who is reading your blog. The counter portion of the service provides a free blog counter widget on your blog. The site stats portion of the service provides you with free blog stats reports to keep you up-to-date on every aspect of your readership. I got the newsletter from FeedBlitz and it’s been pretty useful to me because anyone who signs up will recieve instantly an e-mail whenever I have posted a new blog post, but you can also use it as a newsletter for your website and write up your own. Well the contact me form is new and a very cool form for my readers to contact me. I got it free from this website called Email Me Form. Well the blog roll is from the Thursday Thirteen website and they made it buy creating an account on a website called BlogRolling. I got the scroll box from this website called MySpace Gens and here is the direct link to the scroll box.
Well that’s all I have to say about my blog widgets and I’ve answered Cindy’s question. But if there is anything that I missed or you have some cool widgets that you want to share to drop a comment because I would love to hear about it.
