Tuesday Thingers: Widget Love
Blog Widgets. Do you use them? Do you have them on your blog? Do you know what I'm talking about? :-) A blog widget is that list of books "From my LibraryThing" and such, that you'll sometimes see on someone's sidebar. If you use it, do all of your books show up or do you have it set to only show certain books? Do you have a search widget, which would allow your blog readers to search your library? Have you ever made a photomosaic of your book covers? You can find widgets and photomosaic information on the "Tools" tab in LibraryThing.
I have two LibraryThing widgets in my sidebar, one that shows random books from my library, and another that features the books I'm currently reading. Both of these are tag-based widgets, the first picks up books that are tagged "blog", which indicates that it's something I have reviewed for the blog or will be reviewing for the blog, and the second picks up books tagged "currently reading". I've thought about adding a search widget and making a photomosaic but haven't done either.
Missed my last post? I reviewed Oblivious by Cyndia Depre.
