Etsy Bloggers Carnival for July 7, 2008 - Widgets are us!

The topic this time is for techies. I used to be a techie. Then things got too busy and I kinda lost track of things techie. Soon I found it all but impawsible to catch up. So from a non-techie who used to be a techie here's my two bytes.

My favourite widget of all has to be the one at the bottom of this page. It is the widget from which features a slideshow of my gallery of art. The art is shown clearly and the slideshow runs clean. (Watch now - I've jinxed it!)

I'm also fond of the widget on author Katie Mac's Bepo page. It is a carousel of images of the books she has written.

I also love almost all the widgets on blogspot. They make it so easy to put together a beautiful, professional blog. I think the one I use most often is the one to add html/java to your blog. I only wish blogspot had a template for a three column blog.

That's it for me this week. Bloggers - Widgets away!

Me too! I use the ADD HTML a lot and also wished they had a 3 columns template. So much blank space that could be used. Your art is very interesting, congrats! I'm looking cool on our widget here. Stop by my blog today if you have a chance to treat yourself to something yummy I baked in the microwave!
