I have added a couple of non-Wordpress widgets to the blog’s home page recently. Both are Flash powered, so you have to click on them first before you can use them. One is a simple widget that displays a daily Bible verse. The other one is an RSS reader that I obtained from Spring Widgets. I like it because in the same space it would normally take to display one newsfeed, I can display a window that lets you view multiple newsfeeds that I think might interest my readers. Currently, I have Trika’s MCP Blog, a couple of feeds from CertCities.com on Career and Training, an MCP magazine news blog, my feed (is it overkill? :-), and Fox news. I may add more content as time goes on. Is it worth adding these widgets to my blog? Is the drain on loading the page too much? Let me know what you think.
Oh, and I am sorry for the month long absence. I will try to keep to my schedule of at least one blog post per week.
Thank you for reading.
