Yes, I entered the contest, if you want to enter it here is the link, http://theedublogger.edublogs.org/2009/02/04/the-edubloggers-first-birthday-celebration/, the topic I picked was my favorite widget.


I would have to say that my favorite Widget is……. the plain text box. I really like how I could put whatever I want in it, I could put up a mix pod, and a poll. I don’t really like the ones that say what they are and what you have to do because I like having the option to put what I won’t on my side bar. Without the plain empty text box I would not have my mix pod which shows people the kind of music I like. The text box helps me work my imagination; I never know what I should put in it that is original and interesting. With a text box I could put stuff like this in my blog:   http://blog.vimagic.de/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/02/ipccp_vimagic_big.jpg
 or even this
http://english.people.com.cn/200407/09/images/0708_127.jpg. I would have to say that my favorite is my mix pod. Without the empty text box you would never know were people come from when they visit your blog.



  1. Hi Karen, thanks for entering The Edublogger’s Birthday Celebration Competition! Excellent point about how handy the text widget is because it lets you choose how you want to express yourself. Based on your number of widgets it is clear to see that you like your text widgets.

  3. Thanks for an interesting post! I have to admit however, that I read most of my blogs through my Google reader so I rarely see the widgets people have in their blogs. Something to consider!
