    Today I have come up with a List of 15 Blogger widgets which can Rock your Blog. You don’t have to do any coding or add a new Plugin and get into excessive coding to add this widget. Simply go to your BlogSpot or WordPress widget, add a text widget and copy paste the code generated by any of the Blogging widget services mentioned below. I have an interesting list to share with you, but before going ahead I must mention that a widget is the ‘Handy to use Content’, which adds a good look and can be referred as a sidebar application with some different functions. Like, without setting up or creating any app you can amaze your visitors with funky and wonderful things.

    Create your own widgets for free and add them to your sidebar and search a large collection of already developed widgets at Widget Box. We have already covered some nice widgets to be added on your blog and if you have missed it, here are some of the best pick from ShoutMeLoud Archive:

    Now starts the widget fun but don’t go crazy, add only 3 – 4 Widgets. Adding more will look weird and will spoil the whole appearance of the Blog. More over use only those widgets which help you in promotion or help your readers to connect closely with you or your blog. Using lots of widget might slow down your blog. So be wise!

    Most of the Widgets are used by me at Different websites though one should select a niche before selecting a Widget. The above mention widgets are for all Blogs.

    Do you really feel that we should use these widgets, I am against using more widgets especially when it comes to script related as they will add unnecessary load and takes more time to load pages (which I feel is not good for SEO)

    BTW i have seen a mistake you have typed “fistors” instead of “visitors” in #6. WhoLinked

    Thanks Raj for letting me know your View but Widgets slows down the loading time but remember the time is approximately less then the one which is add up by plugins we usually use on our blogs

    I agree with Raj and I too don’t like to add these scripts(either javascripts or any thing other) on blogs because, it surely slow downs the loading speed and performance of any page,,,resulting in valuable traffic loss….
