Back to School, Back to Blogging: Week 1: Sharing a New Widget

I am joining Klugy Mom's Back 2 School, Back 2 Blogging (B2S, B2B)!  Klugy Mom has some great blog tips in her posts and I thought this would be a way for me to learn some new tricks and do some updating to my blog.  You know, every now and then you just got to "spice" things up!
So enjoy my homework!  I'll be posting something at least once a week.  You will also start seeing new things pop up on my blog!  If you are interested in learning some new blogging tricks, use the button on the right here to come and join the Back 2 School, Back 2 Blogging!

Writing Task for week 1: Find a COOL, little-known plugin or widget and tell us about it.
This was a harder assignment than I thought it was going to be!  I'm not really into all the widgets.  I have found that I don't like too many widgets on a blog and I have tried to cut down the amount of widgets I have on my own blogs.

Since I use Blogger, went to their Gadgets.  There I found two new Blogger made gadgets that I thought sounded interesting.  I decided to try the Popular Posts gadget.

I have it on the left side of my blog below my archives.  I really like it!  It's kind of cool to see what posts are the most popular.  It really kind of amazes me the ones that where the most popular! 

I hope you have noticed the other changes I have made!  I have also joined Stumbled Upon and Blog Frog. I haven't been able to get the widgets for these two to work yet, but I'm working on it!!!
